#13173601 Dark Souls is kicking my ass....

Posted by whataboutbob? on 27 January 2016 - 08:54 AM

I'm an oddball here bc I played a little of demon souls about 3 years ago when it was free w/ ps+....long story short, didnt care for it at the time. Then a buddy of mine talked me into picking up ds2 after a ton of protest from me. I absolutely loved it!!! Put at least 200 hrs into it (which for a dad of 2 thats a ton of time).

 

Then the xb1 came out and I kind of shelved my 360 and I never made it back to playing Dark Souls. I bought scholar of the first sin, put another 150 or so hrs into ds2 in again hah. I also recently bought a ps4 honestly primarily to play Bloodborne, which I recently finished and am working through ng+ and the dlc. 

 

So tonight I finally got back around to hooking up my 360 and dove into the original dark souls. I guess its time since ds3 is fast approaching. I was worried that the game would look pretty dated since Ive pretty much only played ps4 or xb1 games over the last 2.5 years, but I've got to say the first couple hours worth of graphics look pretty good. The main thing is the crazy difference in speed between this and Bloodborne....wow what a change!! (but now I can use my shield if i so choose hah)

 

 

Whats everybody elses thoughts on rank of difficulty across the franchise? Since ive only completed 2 of the games I can only speak for them and I think Bloodborne slightly edges out DS2 in difficulty, but the dlc in DS2 is really rough in spots.

Lol just like Nintendo... Just like with every single Amiibo, Zelda CE game and CE console/handheld, they are leaving all the money for scalpers on the table. At least with this, we can resort to 3rd party version off ebay or amazon for about the same price. You don't want my $20 Nintendo? Guess what, Jimmy Bootlegger does so I guess he'll be the one to get it. FU Nintendo

take your pick

Can't agree more. I've been actively (very freaking actively!) trying to give Nintendo money with all of the items you listed, but I of course can't find any of them in stock so I get hosed by paying some dude on eBay 200% of the value of the item instead of Nintendo. When is nintendo going to wake up and stop skimping on supply? I understand they are conservative with production due to cost and uncertainty, but this has gotten ridiculous in the past few years!!

So I waited all morning impatiently for the UPS man to bring my copy of Titanfall. Finally gets here at 2PM CST. Perfect! Just in time for the kids afternoon nap. Pop in the disk, it starts the installation and i then shuffle to kids up to bed....a free 2 hours to play my new game! I come back downstairs and try to start the game....nothing. Goes to the title screen and then force quits back to the home screen. Try it another dozen times, same result. I think, hmmm, maybe its bc i still have the titanfall beta installed, i go and delete that....same result. I then do a hard reboot and when the xbox boots back up it of course does not recognize me...no biggie, it does this about 25% of the time. I try to login manually and i get a msg that says "There was problem. We couldnt sign you in. Try again in a few minutes". Quick google search reveals its not just me, its everyone and this prevents playing any multiplayer or even starting up apps like netflix. 2 hours later (and with 2 children that are now wide awake) I'm still getting the same msg.

 

This long, drawn out story is more of a question to the 3 of yall. Im in a similar situation as you 3: mid 30's, kids, job, limited gaming time. I chose the xbox one over the PS4 at launch bc of the media integration, possibility of an upgraded Kinect and with this possibly games to play as a family, and the majority of my friends and multiplayer experiences last gen were on the 360. Now after owning it for almost 4 months i have to say i think i may have made the wrong choice. My wife hates that she cant just turn on the tv and watch what she wants, especially shows that are on the dvr bc she needs 2 separate remotes to do this. I had to also connect the directv to another input so she can bypass the xbox altogether (which defeats one of the primary purposes of owning the system). The kinect, as expected, is marginally better than version 1 has no apparent software support on the horizon. The story of the summer that the ps4 has more power is proving true a little more each day. And now this issue with Titanfall on the biggest day of the system's short life crops up.

 

What the hell is Microsoft up to??? Did they have to force this system out just to prevent the PS4 from getting the headstart that the 360 got the previous gen? Should, if i decide to only own 1 system this gen, consider ditching the xbox one and go for the PS4? Do the NPDs scare MS enough to get them to make a significant change? I would love to hear your opinions. Thanks guys!
