>le Sif fight made me cry :(
>le saddest video game moment
Any Fromdrones care to explain this meme?
He's a essentially just guarding his masters grave (Artorias) when you rock up to start some shit with him. That's the meme. He was just being a loyal friend and companion who guarded his master even in death.
I put him down quickly and humanely the first time.
Second play through I was doing an Ornstein run and had to whittle him down with my shitty spear.
>dem low health animations
>limping all over the place
>tries to attack you and falls over
>doge doesnt wanna fight after you save him in the dlc
I used a normal 2h axe for the whole game because I liked the animation, he died really fast, boss I had the most trouble with was the dragon in the dlc, AT LEAST 50 if not more I lost count runs, I took off all my armor except for the gloves of smough's set to get the faster animations because I was out of ideas. Why would the crystal halberd make it easier?
>getting angry because I'm criticizing this meme-boss
He is undeniably a memeboss btw. Why don't you elaborate on why I should give a shit about him? I know that he defends Artorias' grave. Am I suppose to feel sad that I killed him because of that? And I know that you can free him in the DLC, yet he still tries to kill me. Again, when am I supposed to feel sad?
If that Sif fight is meant to evoke an emotional response, then even emotionally dead games like Skyrim must have you on the ground convulsing with despair.
"The Sun is a wondrous body, like a magnificent father! If only I could be so grossly incandescent!"
"My sun... it's setting... it's dark so dark..."
No Solaire, you found your sun, your quest is over. Rest in peace sweet prince :'(
Nito is a really easy boss, he lacks any kind of aggressiveness. At least Sif is constantly attacking you. Nito just lumbers around the room, and when he bothers trying to attack you have half a year to dodge it.
Really? Because as I remember it I got constantly nito-smash-blasted and raped by him and his lackeys.
Was the hardest boss for me, with sif you just stand underneath him, he's a weaker version of the giant rat guardian in ds2.
>Because people are idiots that project human emotions onto animals.
Wrong. All animals feel emotions. Only thing humans have over animals is intelligence and opposable thumbs.
>And I know that you can free him in the DLC, yet he still tries to kill me. Again, when am I supposed to feel sad?
Sif doesn't want you (his savior) to go back into the abyss since he first hand witnessed his own master being turned inside out and reduced to a monstrous shell of his former self.
Sif knows why you're at Artorias' grave and attacks you because he doesn't want the same thing to happen to you. Killing you himself seems like a mercy.
He isn't open to dialogue because he's a giant wolf.
If I recall correctly it did a shit ton of damage and didn't require high stats to wield.
Asshugging Niro with that thing was considered the easiest way to win.
Also, the dragon is considered the hardest boss on the game, and it is really hard, nito just raped me even harder.
Sif was the name of Thor's wife in Norse mythology. Famous for its wolves including its infamous giant wolf.
Sif isn't a male's name. There is no reason to assume that Sif is a male.
It's emotional because people are attached to and easily sympathize with dogs, and once beaten past a certain threshold it begins to limp. It makes one hesitant to finish it off.
The context and the like isn't really the answer, because that's mostly stuff players think about long after their first battle with Sif has ended.
>le "NOT THE DOG!!!! :(((" meme
Nito is easy if you just run like a little fuck and use your +5 Chaos Zweihander like the legend that never dies.
Farm the little creepy skelly babies if you're bad enough not to have a lot of humanity before you get to him. OR bad enough to not just +15 Claymore him.
If you can dodge all the skeletons and just hit and run nito. He's Ez.
Also got him first try and didn't even know what was beyond the fog gate. Because I don't pay attention to story in games.
