Having fallen in love with Dark Souls up to the Tomb of the Giants, I can - sort of - agree with this. Some - and only some - of the bosses in Dark Souls are novel and challenging. Taurus Demon comes...

Ugh...boss fights. When can we retire those from the annals of gaming again? At least in their current iteration, they are often the worst thing about games. I wish developers would realize that...
Speaking of Origin...Crysis 3 is $9.99 today. Its still very early on, but so far its about 50% corridor and 50% open level, create your own solution. It would be better were it not for the Stalker...
In stepping away from Dark Souls and thinking carefully about it...I have to say: It isn't the difficulty that really gets to me. Sure its frustrating. But we know that going in.

Very interesting. Also, that fits with much of what I have read about the game now I think back on it. Most of the best stories in this game do seem to revolve around defeat. Utter, complete,...
In my opinion the quality of the game suffers after Anor Londo. Not in terms of level design. Tomb is pretty cool in terms of how its designed. So are some of the other areas.
I think what went...

I was trekking through here to see what folks were playing when I came upon this post. After the first sentence I was ready to offer my condolences. After the second I was...worried. Until the last...
After a week or so away, I made a good run through Tomb of the Giants today. All the way to Nito, in fact...and I have to say that after two extremely frustrating hours, I am calling it quits.
As irritating as that area was...this is hilarious.
Ahh so the ptches bonfire is warp enabled. that is good to know. I have not yet seen lost izalith so i may well look into the sunlight maggot. Or just warp out and break from the area. I have a...
In fairness, you bring up a very valid point here.
I think a big part of it is a mindset engendered by so many years playing the sorts of games I played until Dark Souls. Fully half of them were...
Oh aye, I did that. I have said light source.
Said light source not being a shield. Which means that whilst I can see with said light source what I cannot do, is block.
I will figure a way...
Reached the first bonfire in the Tomb, yes. Managed to get that far. And one benefit of the darkness: some kind of knight - a Black Knight, I think - fell right off the ledge on his way to me. Must...
I think the frustration is temporary. If I can reach a point where they turn the lights back on and the challenge resumes a fair and reasonable level, I will be okay. But this is one of those points...
I have now reached a sad realization about Dark Souls: The game does not get progressively harder as you continue on. It gets progressively cheaper.
By the time you reach Blighttown, you've...
So I have come to Tomb of the Giants. I have 12 days before Dark 2. And I really want to make sure I finish this right. Any last minute tips are welcome; I am going to push through this thing pretty...

Lordran in Dark Souls. Easily one of the most amazing "online" worlds I have visited. Sure I know its not quite standard MMO online, but its pretty close. And it is amazing.
The way all of...
What's below is one big spoiler. So, whiting it. Go slow and be sure you want the next tip before revealing it. Unless it starts with Blighttown, that place is awful (both in terms of the game and in...
I realize that this thread is - for obvious reasons - winding down. And I had a thought on how to sort of unofficially wrap it up:
Quick key thoughts/tips for players looking to wrap up a Dark 1...

thanks for the spoiler free response. Good to knowexploration is still rewarded with unique gear.

one of the things i loved about Dark 1 is the variety of unique items scattered about the world. Wolf Ring. Iaito. Greatscythe. Elite Knight Armor.
Does Dark 2 do the same? Is exploration of the...

I fail to understand gripes about graphics. Certainly they aren't going to make high end rigs cry, but I think they look just fine. Especially since the Souls game need smooth frame rates above all...
This is pretty much what I feared. Those who play the game know how hard and for how long I bounced right off Dark Souls. And then to get bitten by the DS bug and end up in Blight Town as quickly as...
I also forgot about Malik in DXHR. I had the same reaction; Adam went a little nuts on the enemies after that. Mercy pretty much left the equation.
And yeah...Dark Souls. Man...the whole damned...
