Two more bosses down. Off to the profaned capital!
I also took a good look at the boss souls I l've collected, and cashed all the ones I don' t want the loot in for souls and, levelled up lots.

I thought you were playing Dark Souls 3. ;)

Should I get Dark Souls?

Should I start with 1?

1. If it sounds like something you would like.

2. Yes. (although not because you need to play them in order for plot, but rather, it's the best design of the lot.)

I have Dark Souls Davpaz and I found it infuriatingly hard. I started it on 3, maybe 4 separate occasions too so I gave it a fair chance but in the end it was just too hard for me to endure with my limited gaming time.

I can appreciate why people like it though.

Yeah I can appreciate why people like it too. It's because they're fucking mental.

I would perhaps start with Bloodborne - the best Dark Souls game.

If you do go for DS3 make sure to get the whip.

I should finish editing my videos.

Play them all in order if you can.

I'm assuming the multiplayer servers are still busy for DS? Would be a rather hollow* experience without other people popping in.

*Amazing Joke ahead.

Dark Souls is backwards compatible on the Xbox One so that normally gives the multiplayers lobbies a bump... not that anyone here would know of course.

Like MrDave mentioned, the level design in Dark Souls is superb. Slightly jealous of you experiencing it all for the first time.

Pyromancy is your friend.

Do you have spare hours and hours to sit and play videogames? No? Then don’t bother.

If you want the first one on the 360, I can lend you my copy and pop it in the post to you. I was going to restart it myself actually, but I think if I fired up my 360, I'd probably get complaints from the neighbours about the noise

Same mate :) Thanks for the offer, but I'm PC-only for a while

Once it get's under your skin, Dark Souls will make you find the time.

Suspect this is the best advice.

As per my games-to-dip-in-and-out-of thread, I don't have the time for more demanding gaming experiences so will never get to properly experience DS and the like (for 10 years or so, anyway).

Which is why I suspect I'm doomed to play Ubi open-world games which are particularly generous in terms of getting straight into it and giving you a good time for 30 minutes.

Fair enough. :) I see that the Prepare to Die edition has been as low as £3.47 in the past and is currently £15.77, so it might be worth waiting for a sale somewhere.

If you’re on PC I think there was an issue with the PC port whereby you had to download DSfix (I think) to sort it out. I’m still not sure that this fully resolved any issues but a Dave may be able to advise.

To be fair, if all you want to do is dabble then I’d strongly suggest you get Dark Souls 3. It’s more accessible, looks better, the PC port is great and supports higher frame rates and resolutions (so I heard - PS4 player here), it’s more linear, has fast travel, the online element is still going strong with regular players so you won’t miss out on integral elements of the game like invasions (you doing one or having one done to you) or friendly co-op to help you with bosses or just to nip into someone’s world to help them with a boss.

You’ll get everything you need to know about the franchise while it’s still active. The story won’t matter much and if you really enjoy yourself then you might be inclined to pick up the earlier iterations which are less accessible to newbies but armed with some information on how to play it’ll be much less daunting. So, yeah, get Dark Souls 3 while it’s still be regularly played.

The problem was entirely that it was identical to the xbox version with some pap mouse controls added if you hate yourself. You can use dsfix to increase the resolution. Make the mouse cursor less there and increase the frame rate (If you like occasionally falling through the floor, that is)

Remaster leak confirms the following:-

Nicked a TLDR from reddit

Quote:
No new content, 1080p for normal, 4K for Pro, Stable 60fps, BLIGHT TOWN WORKS, and it's Dark Souls
