Why, what spectacular pyromancy.
Tell me about it. Where did you learn something like that?
Ah, hello! You don't look Hollow, far from it!
At least Solaire can make it to the end of the game by doing something other than sitting on his ass all day.
A bro as he may be, Laurentius would not last long in a room with Gwyn, unlike Solaire
who usually dies when used against Gwyn, but at least TRIES

Come at me you schmucks. :^)
The biggest problem with DaS II characters is that there is almost no resolution with them at all. Except for Pate and his rival, all the characters either hang out in Majula forever doing nothing or they disappear.
There was no Solaire type character (Lucatiel doesn't count. She was always so gloomy), no proper Lautrec character, no Big Hat, no Siegmeyer, no Laurentius, no Reah. All these character all had shit going on in their lives and had interesting personalities.
Lucatiel was interesting, the problem is we don't see her hollowing affect our game directly unlike Solaire. But there's no way the new directors could've done that without people going "Oh this is just like Solaire from the first game." So instead they go for some dramatic irony: Lucatiel came to Drangleic to follow her brother. The last time we see Lucatiel is outside Aldia's Keep. Go inside Aldia's Keep, and you get invaded by Aslatiel. Lucatiel goes hollow without seeing her brother again. P. sad.
>no proper Lautrec character
I'd argue that the Pate/Creighton dynamic that replaces Lautrec is just as interesting. If you fail to talk to Cale after meeting Creighton, you'll never know that Creighton is a serial killer from the same land as Cale. Without this knowledge, you might be helping Pate when they confront each other at Brightstone Cove Tseldora. It's pretty decent.
Benhart a shit yes.
Reah by herself isn't all that interesting except the implications it has: Reah's mission seems to be the first steps to her becoming a Firekeeper and gives insight into the world of DaS. But the fact that Petrus exists makes it dope. I mean that's so fucking cool that they put that shit in there that Petrus kills Reah if you don't kill him before saving her from the Tomb of the Giants. You'd NEVER know that and I still don't know how people find that out.

>mfw pirated both DaS games

The new characters have the basis of being interesting but like I said the biggest problem is that there isn't any satisfying resolution. Too many characters just pitch up their tents in Majula and stay there.
I wouldn't have. DaS II has enough stuff rehashed that would be better to complain about
>You will never know what happens with the blacksmith and his daughter
Precisely. That's why what they did instead is still pretty cool.
And you never will most likely. DaS used to get 6k players and the highest nowadays is 2k. I'm actually so glad I was there during the peak years, PvP was so fucking fun.
>The new characters have the basis of being interesting but like I said the biggest problem is that there isn't any satisfying resolution. Too many characters just pitch up their tents in Majula and stay there.
Well yes I agree. You'll notice I only replied with the ones that have interesting gameplay things.

>telling people on /v/ that you have a parasitic organism growing in your stomach feeding off your life energy
I killed her and took the game back to the store because I refused to be forced to level up through some slut and not at bonfires.
why force me to fucking fast travel back and talk to some bitch every time?
>tfw you save solaire

Invade as a Blade of the Darkmoon with 6 Wrath of the Gods. I'd message people via LIVE and tell them "This is the moon police, come out with your hands up."
They never went willingly, dumb criminals.
Never played Demon's Souls eh?
Mah nigga. I probably had like 10 stacks of ears total in all of my PVPing as a Darkmoon.
It was brutal what a well timed WOG could do to gankers.
Have you ever stunlocked three giantdads at once?
Solaire = Benhart
Lautrec = Creighton and Licia
Patches = Pate
You people are total hypocrites. If there are pretty unique characters with different stories to Dark Souls, you cry about it. If they had copied the same characters and given them slight variations, you'd cry about it.
Lucatiel was never meant to be Solaire. Benhart is far more Solaire.
Lucatiel is pretty unique. Closest thing to Big Hat Logan. She even disappears in the Duke's Archives 2.0.
>comparing Maiden to Herald
Maiden in Black was in the hub, which you would end up often, and she let you just get straight into things
Emerald Herald was at the hub, but you were only ever there to level up or smith. The bonfire system was far better for Dark's world style. Not to mention she forces you to listen to her little song before you can level up.
>being a hallow
Just another word for demon.

>The bonfire system was far better for Dark's world style
I don't disagree.
>Not to mention she forces you to listen to her little song before you can level up.
Well no, she doesn't. You can press a button to skip it. Unlike the Maiden in Black, who actually does force you to listen to her chant.
>implying I'm not the best souls girl
>Unlike the Maiden in Black, who actually does force you to listen to her chant.
Have you ever played Demon's?
Maiden asks "Do you want to level up?" You hit yes and you're in the level up screen. Her chant plays behind the level up screen, you don't have to skip through four blocks of fucking dialogue to level up every time.
>Have you ever played Demon's?
>Her chant plays behind the level up screen
Yes I know. Forcing you to listen to the chant. What if you didn't want to listen to the chant?
>you don't have to skip through four blocks of fucking dialogue to level up every time.
It actually gives you the option to NOT hear the chant, which DeS did not. More player agency is a good thing no matter how you slice it. The problem with what you're doing is you're assuming that everyone liked hearing the Maiden in Black's chant every time they had to level up. I personally did not have a problem with it, but what DSII did with the Maiden in Green is not an issue as it gives the player the OPTION to not hear the chant.
>>Her chant plays behind the level up screen
>Yes I know. Forcing you to listen to the chant. What if you didn't want to listen to the chant?
Oh jesus christ that makes sense and is awful.
I wish to be enveloped in her fluffiness.
> What if you didn't want to listen to the chant?
That's like asking if you didn't want to listen to the music.
It's not the same as having to hear "BEAR, SEEK, SEEK, LEST" every fucking time you want to level up, and having to endure the slow ass animation of her holding her feather over your head for 5 seconds.
Let me, an impartial observer, explain it.
That anon is saying that the audio will continue to play while leveling up, even if you don't want to hear it. Yes, if you finish quickly enough, you can cut her off.
He is saying that, hypothetically, some people might not want to listen to it at all.
Was gonna post the usual filename but you did me one better.
So hearing the chant as audio, with no obtrusive dialogue, is worse than having to skip through four dialogues to get to the level up screen?
So you didn't read the rest of my post?
>That's like asking if you didn't want to listen to the music
It is a valid question nonetheless.
>It's not the same as having to hear "BEAR, SEEK, SEEK, LEST"
I know that. You have the option to not hear the entire chant, unlike the Maiden in Black. To some that is a benefit. Step out of your own mind for a minute and realize that; I actually like hearing her chant but the option to skip it is not an inherently bad one.
>and having to endure the slow ass animation of her holding her feather over your head for 5 seconds.
Now you're adding other things into it. I personally don't care about this tidbit.
I learned it from watching you, Dad!
But how is that worse than being forced to skip through dialogue to level up?
I don't get it. One lets you level up instantly, the other has you mashing a button for several seconds before it lets you level up. Sometimes it bugs out and won't let you skip instantly too, so you have to hear half of each line of dialogue before it lets you skip.
Fuck Emerald Herald and fuck anyone who thinks that system wasn't garbage.
I didn't say that at all. Do you have issues reading?
I was so happy after soloing O & S (killed Smough first). My first playthrough I bitched out and summoned Solaire.
Also running through DaS with a pure strength build felt a lot easier than dex.
But the chant isn't fucking obtrusive, what the fuck are you even arguing for ? We don't want to have a shitty mechanic slowing you down every fucking time you want to level up. Especially since she never says anything worthwhile after the first time you meet her and the NPC with the most info in the game is fucking shalquoir the random cat in the hut.
>mfw I finally kill a black knight
those particle effects were pretty neato
>tfw Souls games have so much cut content
I'm the most pissed about DeS, to be honest.
I mean come on, a whole fucking Archstone, really?
Reminder that Yurt did nothing wrong.
Also that Lautrec is a little bitch and had to target mute girl stuck in a cage.
Fascinating contribution to the discussion.
>We don't want to have a shitty mechanic slowing you down every fucking time you want to level up
Are you okay, anon? I can't imagine you're actually letting something as miniscule as this bother you to such a degree.
>with the most info in the game is fucking shalquoir the random cat in the hut.
This is indeed an issue and I found myself thinking "why didn't they give Shalquoir's lines to the Maiden in Green?" Then I realized they were doing this stupid thing with the cat's voice being all sensual even though it's a cat god that is dumb.
You literally said "some people might not like to listen to the audio, so it's better to have it as dialogue that obstructs the level up and forces you to mash through four lines of text, rather than an entirely unobtrusive audio playing the background"
And somehow you translate that to me saying one is worse than the other? I said some would prefer one to the other. That's all I've been saying. Did you just read some parts of it and let your mind run rampant?
A very fitting reward for killing O&S, I'd say.
Fuck you I'm a darkmoon and I invade all the time
Cap your soul level around 100 and you can invade literally anywhere in the game no problem because blue invasion level ranges are enormous. You can probably push it to like SL 110 or 115 and still invade anywhere.
Most populated places to invade as a blue are forest and anor londo. Oolacile township and undead burg are other obvious places. Anywhere else is also fair game if you wanna catch people off guard because you can invade basically anywhere and there are bound to be at least a few people in every location, and at least one of them is bound to be a sinner and human.
Most dead places are probably Undead Parish, the depths, maybe catacombs.
Why would I? I'm discussing one of my favorite game series and posting related images and you're here, well not doing either of those things.
Once again, difficulty reading. I never said I had a problem with it. I'll even show where I say that:
>I personally did not have a problem with it
You're not even talking about the game anymore or posting Dark Souls related content and you're telling me to stop "shitposting"?
He's actually a lawyer or at the very least works in a lawyer's office so I imagine he's really busy.
It is a big problem when you're trying to get through the game for the tenth time and you're fucking tired of having to pause in the middle of enjoying progression, go to majula, get through a loading screen, walk over to the Emerald Herald, mash the A key to get through her BEAR SEEK SEEK LEST so you can get in the level up menu, then have to deal with her animation, go back to the bonfire, go through another loading screen to finally get back to where you were. It adds no value and severely breaks immersion by changing the environment suddenly twice, fucks with speed-runners immensely if they're planning on using any kind of level up and just takes a solid 3 minutes every single time. While in DaS 1 it's possible to level up in 15 seconds if you know what you're doing, without going through loading screens for the matter.
Her laugh is just the best thing ever.
I guess I just don't let those things affect me like you do. Which is fine I suppose. Just watch yourself anon.
Whoa nelly, why is Gwyn below Vendrick? Vendrick didn't unite all his peoples against an immortal race of gigantic dragons AND cast the first lightning bolt at them.
heck yes, anon
Vendrick united his people against (what he believed was) a malicious race of giants with nothing but his mortal abilities.
Gwyn had the first flame, he did all those things with great power. Vendrick was just a man.
Though I shouldn't expect you to know any better. Actually thinking Emerald Herald was better than Maiden in Black, jeez. Do you have a handler, or does your mum go everywhere with you?
It's not a question of being affected by it or not. It's objectively worse in any way possible compared to a simple and quick system. I know you're just being an idiot on purpose (I certainly hope you are), but I can't resist the bait.
Here you go anon.
>Vendrick united his people against (what he believed was) a malicious race of giants with nothing but his mortal abilities.
At the behest of Nashandra.
>Actually thinking Emerald Herald was better than Maiden in Black, jeez
Point out exactly where I say this. I'll wait.
Vendrick pussied out in the end when he finally woke up and saw his wife was a spawn of Dark. He cockblocked her by blocking everything she could use behind walls and abandoned the kingdom then went hollow in a crypt. Gwyn fought until he went mad, never gave up and even gave his own soul and endured a thousand year of torture just so he could keep the Fire age going. Remember, gwyn had no clue the curse was going to happen / continue after he linked the flame. Sure you may call that cowardice in the face of the unknown, that is, the dark age. But at least he fought against it. Unlike Vendrick who fought against mortal foes then gave up as soon as something somewhat resembling a fragment of Dark approached him.
I think I had some anon's short edit of the entire lore, let me check.
Whoops forgot this and I misspelled again*
> go to a wikia if you suck.
Confirmed retarded. Never give a new player to the souls series the advice of going to look up information on wikias or guides. You tell them to buckle up, figure shit out by themselves, observe their surrounding and git gud.
King's Field is it's own thing. I don't know that games lore.
Demon's Souls is it's own thing.
Dark Souls is it's own thing, Dark Souls 2 is thousands of years after Dark Souls apparently.
Like I said, anon'll go to one if he sucks. The first bit of the sentence I say to start up the game. So yeah.
Welp, don't have it anymore.
Ohhhh I see. No I didn't mean "suck" as in "bad at the game" I meant "suck" as in "if you want to ruin the experience for yourself" yeah I fucked up.

I wonder what happened to them in the thousands of years after Dark Souls. I always took the headless serpents at the Shrine of Winter as a sign that Vendrick and his posse weren't having their shit and killed them.
Taurus Demon is the best.
I didn't expect a giant minotaur to fall from the sky on top of a bridge.
Fuck, I want to play Dark Souls again. The atmosphere and world are so beautiful.
I love medieval times.
> Second to last

Pinwheel was creative as fuck, most people fight him way overlevelled, go fight him right after the gargoyles, it's still easy, but it gets tense if you let him split a bit. Also his theme, appearance and tidbits of lore are awesome.
I think someone shit in their cheerios. You can only be a manipulative snake till someone gets tired of your shit. Apparently they were supposed to be able to be killed in the first game before they took that out for some reason. Their animations are hilarious if you get the chance to see it.
It was very obviously a hypothetical way From could have handled it.
Someone pls post them before I have to leave, I know there's webbums like that floating around of cut content.
Only if you haven't learn how to fight them at that point. They're not a hard boss Anon, you just need to buff and whack away.
Yeah but originally it looked like Bed of Chaos was going to get up and wreck your shit instead of being a shitty 'puzzle fight'.
>iron round shield + rapier
If you're running that with leo ring, pic very related.
Although personally I might go for a thrust attack with a longsword.
I just think DaS 2 isn't even in the same world as DaS 1. Just in a pocket dimension. The actual world of DaS 1 at this point is fully in the age of Dark. Hence the intro sequence, and Things Betwixt being a "Limbo" according the to maiden of the firekeepers. Just figured that going in the Dark Chasm of old you're actually going to the real Dark Souls 1 world, that's why you meet Havel, Ricard, Pharis and others from the first game.
How do player deaths and summons of NPCs work in the world of Souls realistically? I understand other player summons, you'd summon another "you" through time, but what about NPCs? What happens when your player actually dies? Does your body disintegrate and you end up at a fire?
These questions have never been answered for me in these threads.
When you die, you end up in another world. There's an infinity of worlds connected to each others. It's not another you you're summoning, it's someone in another world. When you kill an NPC they go back to another world's bonfire and get further in the hollowing process. That's why multiple NPCs make references to the time frame of lordran being fucked, heroes of centuries ago phasing in and out and multiple events supposed to happen centuries across happening at the same time (meeting both Tarkus and Logan).
Gameplay and story segregation.
Man there were some crazy theories last year regarding what Drangleic was. I remember someone said that, as evidenced by the remnants of the archtrees in the Dragon Aerie, that the world of Lordran actually fell on top of Ash Lake and that's why there was no Ash Lake anymore.
Miyazaki didn't say for some reason.
“Simply put, I wanted to feature a big woman. I think it was one of Fujiko F. Fuijo’s short mangas that was about a strict CEO type guy being soothed through his acquaintance with a giant woman who coddled him like a child at a unique therapy facility…That’s like a personal fantasy of mine (laughs). I like the thought of a woman who is bigger than me. It speaks to something we lost as we grew up.
Anyway, that’s why Gwynevere is a giant. (laughs)
I also made the motions to have the player kneel and kiss the back of her hand because that gesture is also something that I like…but it didn’t make it into the game. If you were specifically asking about her ample bosom, that wasn’t my doing. The graphic designer did that for his own personal reasons."
No you don't summon other yous from different times. Who told you this lie? You summon other undead who reside in parallel universes. As for NPCs, it's the exact same shit.
When you die you return to the last bonfire you linked to. You basically regenerate there. Why do you think all the enemies respawn when you use the bonfire? The same way you do if you died.
Sorry friend the only video I can find of it on hand is one with hellkite drake and vaati on it. The former shut down his channel containing a lot of the information about them that I know. You can see some of their animations here though.
>Miyazaki has a giantess fetish
>but he didn't ask for the tits
Of all the knights, who's most likely to win in a real 1 on 1 fight? My money's on Artorias.
There's this thing called "Equipment Load," you ca view it from the status screen or by changing the status screen when equipping armor/weapons by pressing triangle/Y. It works in different weight increments; to roll like in that gif you need to stay below 25% of your equipment load total. If your equipment load is say, 81kg/lbs or whatever, you need to be carrying 20.25 or below.
Hellkite Drake used to have everything on his channel, but, he removed all his videos for some reason. It's like the 'third thing you didn't know' or something in that video. I haven't watched it in ages. Their attacking animation is hilarious though. They literally try to smash you with their heads.
He seems to be a pretty based dude all around sans his work on the Armored Core games. Besides Kojima and Fumito Ueda, he's probably my favorite guy in the industry right now; I really can't wait to see what he puts out after Bloodborne considering he said in an interview with Edge once that he wanted to make a "warmer" game in terms of atmosphere and I'd like to see what he can do.
Not all of them are undead beings so some just die.
Also you take their soul. Ever notice how there are a ton of stone cold dead hollows laying around with lootable souls? They probably actually die if you take their soul. Normal enemies don't drop usable souls and they respawn. Dead dead hollows don't respawn because their soul has probably been ripped from them, hence you can loot it. Bosses probably don't respawn because you take their soul, or they just lose it however those dead hollows managed to lose theirs.
Check and mate.
Doesn't he legit have a foot fetish? That's the reason Priscilla's feet look so good.
>That’s like a personal fantasy of mine (laughs). I like the thought of a woman who is bigger than me.
>If you were specifically asking about her ample bosom, that wasn’t my doing. The graphic designer did that for his own personal reasons."
Don't ever change japs
The Witch of Izalith?
It solves the problem of "who did she fuck" as well.
Now it all comes down to an even more important question. Who did the furtive pigmy fuck that created a bloodline that eventually descended to the chosen undead?
Yeah I was kinda hoping for this considering I made this entire headcanon thing about Velka being behind the entirety of events in Dark Souls 1. When I read the description about The Lost Sinner I was all "oh fuck yes Velka is back" but nope.
Well, I don't think he fucked anyone. He just took the Dark Soul and split it and then the little humans that came out fucked everyone else.
That's a lie. He just created the first humans. You're his descendent because he's the father of all humanity. Humanity being shards of the Dark Souls. The more humans reproduce, the stronger the Dark Soul gets, the stronger the Dark Soul gets, the weaker the light soul and the first flame become. Hence the entire plot of the games and why people are so buttmad about hollows and humans.
I think there was more 'humans' than the pigmy, he was just the one that found the dark soul and expanded it among his fellow man.
Orienstein would get his shit pushed in by Manus. The fact that Artorias survived is enough to show he could take Orienstein.
Lady of the Darkling.
Oh man that picture is great, it pretty much defines everything wrong with a new player in DS and how their either read online about this great sword or a friend told them about shooting the tail.
Oh jesus where has this been oh dear.
The DLC is great anon. Have fun!
This guy's not kidding. Usually when people say things like this, I assume they're being babies, but holy shit, it's pretty fucking bad without DSfix. I made it to Anor Londo before I couldn't survive anymore exposure to the game in it's base state.
I've already beaten all three Souls games.
The only game I have in my possession is the best one.
You know which one it is
I went through the entirety of DS as a hollow because I never knew that you could turn into a human or summon other characters.
What a fool I was.
Did you know
Frampt and Kampt are the same snake? Frampt is the tail/head and Kampt is the tail/head.Isn't that just weird?
I did this too, I knew about humanity but I was too much of a bitch to use it because I afraid of cocking up on easy things and wasting it. By the end I had probably 60 or more unused humanity.
Because of this I had no idea how many summons I was missing and ended up soloing the entire game.
>Right click game, go to properties, go to Betas, and enable BETA VERSION
You play via steamworks instead of dead GFWL
>Download DSFix and install
Installing is easy. Just put all the files in the folder and open dsfix.ini. Then customize settings. Make absolutely sure to unlock the FPS and set FPS cap to 60. The settings should be near the bottom of the file. As for the rest of the settings, I'm sure you can figure them out.
If you wanna mod some shit you can do that too. Maybe go to nexusmods DS section and find a mod of your favorite weapon(s) and install it. It will change the visual just for you, other people won't see it obviously.
My bad, that's what I meant. They're not directly taken to Lordran, but, they usually find a way to end up there is what I meant.
You don't need to opt into the beta anymore to join steamworks version. In fact it can be deferential now since there have been reports of it causing freezing and such.
Different people. The description of Lloyd's Talisman describes one such person.
In the outside world, the Undead are
accursed creatures, and Lloyd's cleric knights
are widely praised for their Undead hunts.
This blessed talisman blocks Undead recovery,
allowing the knights to fight with impunity.
I was really hoping for a boss fight in the Artorias DLC or even DS2 of a hydra whose heads were the various primordial serpents.
Their appearance almost implies something isn't quite right with them, and regardless of your chosen ending they manipulate you to some mysterious end.
Just seems like a huge loose end that really needed some kind of closure.
>Make absolutely sure to unlock the FPS and set FPS cap to 60.
Not the same person you were replying to, but I have always used DSfix but never turned the 30 FPS cap off cause of some reports of people getting banned on GFWL. When it switched to steamworks I lost my save file (no big deal more reason to play). So I decided to unlock it this time around and I ran into some weird glitches. Like I can't jump as far as I usually can, and my run speed is actually slower than normal. I was sliding down a ladder and I went through the ground and fell to my death under the map.
I just turned the FPS capping back on and everything went back to normal.
The jumps where 30fps is needed are like 2 in the entire game. The ladder sliding down happens in 1 place in the entire game as far as I know (rat area near sunlight altar).
For this stuff you can press backspace to toggle between 30 and 60.
I have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to run speed. I see the exact same run speed with 30 and 60.
>I always took the headless serpents at the Shrine of Winter as a sign that Vendrick and his posse weren't having their shit and killed them.
You just blew my fucking mind, that's brilliant.
So I shouldn't bother? It was nice having it feel so much smoother, but at the cost of gameplay? It's not worth it.
>Can't make the jump to get the crossbow in undead burg
>Can't make the jump to crestfallen warrior merchant in sen's fortress
Maybe it's just a glitch, I only noticed after going from 60 to 30 that I felt like I was running a lot faster, the camera actually starts to fall behind sometimes.
>For this stuff you can press backspace to toggle between 30 and 60.
I didn't know there was a toggle, I will definitely give it a shot again.
>Gwyn (no parry)
For jolly co-op
>As I typed in gargs, I remembered my first time fighting them & struggling, then realizing what their purpose was after beating them (in terms of game play mechanics)
>Tfw I will never play DaS1 for the first time again without succumbing to amnesia
The best I can do is not play it for years & return to it, but with 800+ hours in the damn game I'm likely to remember a lot of shit in the game.
Just tested 30/60 toggle. Run speed is exactly the same.
The jumps are the only real problem, but from my experience the distance only makes a difference when trying to do extremely long distance jumps, like to get the Iaito. Other than that the distance doesn't seem to matter. I think it might have to do with airtime, where it's much more noticeable with longer jumps and almost identical with short ones.
The animations for the jumps is the same, but you just all of a sudden stop moving forward in 60 fps. It's like you only move forward for a predetermined amount of frames and not an amount of time.
Running might look different because DS is tied to framerates, so perhaps the camera updates 30 times a second, and it lags behind, but the actual run speed is the same. I know because I've caught plenty of people running in PvP and I always 60FPS.
There are 3 jumps in the game that require you to toggle the FPS
>Crossbow in Undead Burg
>Key/Crestfallen Merchant in Sen's
>Iaito in Blighttown
And there are 2 ladders that will knock you off the map
>Rats in Undead Parish

When you reach those 5 places, toggle 60 off, do your shit, and toggle it back on 5 seconds later.
