CRank: 5Score: 0

This game is amazingly fun don't get me wrong, but for a game series that has this reputation of being hard, it doesn't do a good job at it successfully, at least not consistently.

In both Dark Souls & Dark Souls 2, there were only small patches which were somewhat difficult, it really wasen't consistently difficult through out both games, which is something they need to improve on.

Circle strafing and blocking and waiting your time for a strike in the meantime and rinse repeat is a successful tactic on those bosses.

I have done this EXACT tactic myself.

Exception would be the Smelter Demon, unless you have the 100% Fire reduction shield. In that one I dodged/rolled past his attacks, (also Iron King, rather then blocked, but those other bosses, that tactic works

The bosses are very disappointing. Except for a select few...

PC does not have the appeal to the majority of core gamers like it once did.

90% of the games on PC can already be played on consoles. The graphics are good enough, so your 'the graphics a better though' argument goes out the window.

I own all the platforms, except Wii:U, that way I don't miss out on any games, but if I had to choose, or recommend, it would easily be consoles. WOW, iRacing? LOL 4500? shovel ware and indie titles. Really grasping a...

Fanboys disgust me.

First of all let me tell you I prefer the PS4 as a gaming platform, but some of you PS4 fanboys are hypocrites, stating that Titan Fall sucks and then all of a sudden welcoming the series to PS4 once news hits Titan Fall 2 will not be XBONE exclusive.

I have Titan Fall myself and the game is great!

I would like to ask a serious question, this goes for both PS4 and XBONE fanboys

Do you guys refuse to buy th...

Dark Souls 2 this week
Infamous Second Son next week

What a great fortnight for gamers

Seems like Dark Souls was just not right for you. You are supposed to be punished when you die, lose your souls and try making it back to your body.

One thing I do agree on though is the bosses. You mention that all it takes to defeat them is simply dodge their very simplistic attack patterns, hit them and rinse repeat.

If there is one thing that needs improvement its this. The bosses in Dark Souls all had a very basic, simplistic attack pattern and can be ea...

THe reason why we don't need the movie is because it can NEVER tell a story or have character integration as effective as TLOU.

The fact that it has gameplay and lets you interact and control the character, it amplifys the connection you have with the characters, story and the world.

When a story or character integration is done right, TLOU is a perfect example, no Movie can improve on this.

When done right, just like the TLOU, a video ga...

And OMG I totally forgot - Infamous: Second Son the week after

OMG what a fortnight for gamers.

Wow this game is getting unnecessary harsh treatment.

The game isn't perfect but goodness gracious 5/10?

Are we playing the same game here?

The Dark Souls/Demon Souls games are massively overstated when it comes to difficulty.

Dark Souls especially (with so many bonfires/checkpoints), wasen't really all that difficult at all.

The 'difficulty' comes from the battle mechanics and how enemies attack you. They are way different then any other type of game.

Other games you can carelessly just hack and slash and kill them, with these games you cannot and people new to these...

Look, I Love the Uncharted games, but I have already played them numerous times. Ahh yes it will have better graphics, but that really doesn't change much, it is still the same game.

I really wish they would focus their work on something new instead. New IP? Uncharted 4? TLOU2

For those who are about to start THIEF, I HIGHLY recommend using CUSTOM DIFFICULTY and turning OFF things such as WAYPOINT and FOCUS.

This is a stealth game and FOCUS totally ruins the stealth experience, as it lets you know where enemies are etc.

There are other things you can turn off, but these 2 are a must imo

dcj - Sony really don't have much competition now
PC is a tiny market and does not have that much appeal at all to the majority of core gamers. (Most of the games on PC can already be played on consoles - really doesn't leave much left for PC)

Nintendo - Different market, they are more targeted to the casuals

Microsoft is really their only competitor and they aren't off to a great start.

If Sony can continue pushing great ...

I REALLY recommend people to turn OFF Focus and use Custom Difficulty

Turning Focus off improves the gameplay tremendously, especially since this is a stealth game.

This is a great move by Sony

Indie games offer a certain gameplay experience that can't be found with your usual AAA title.

The site says the PS4 GPU is 'slightly' faster. If that was truely the case, we would be seeing 1080p for mulitplatform games on XBONE just like the PS4 has, but it doesn't, on those same games and also framerate.

That reason alone shows the difference between the GPU's isn' t 'slight' but 'massive'

Dark Souls really isn't 'difficult'

The 'difficulty' is that it is so different to other hack/slash games, if you don't go in with the right mindset, the penalty is death. The 'difficulty' is getting in the right mindset and patience, thats it

Once you have got that, the game is not that hard at all.

And that is going to be a problem with Dark Souls 2, it's not going to be that difficult, because we all kno...

ESRAM hates you all mwhahhahahahaha

On a serious note - you fanboys are absolutely hiliarious, using anything (even when it doesn't matter) to fuel the fanboy wars at each other.

Those XBONE only people, even though 720p, are still playing the SAME GAME and are going to obviously have the same experience.

This isnt PS2 area graphics anymore. Graphics have come to a point where they do not hinder gameplay/experience anymore if one platfo...

'No Titanfall on PS4 is a big deal'

Actually it's not a big deal at all.

Why? Because I can play this game on my PC or XBONE.

Thats the great thing about owning mulitple platforms, don't miss out on anything.

How did the Wii win last generation?

It's not even in the same market as the PS3 or 360 was, so how could it have won?

It's like saying the iPAD won last generation.

PS3 won last generation as it's only competition in it's market was the 360, and it had more sales then the 360.
