Anyone play Dark Souls II or III? Are they just as ridiculously hard as the original Dark Souls?
That was one game where I truly had moments where I want to throw the controller through the tv and yet when finally accomplishing something it was sooo satisfying. I just don't know if I want to put myself through the pain again lol.
Oh, I love the Souls games. I've largely fallen out of gaming, but they bring back all the gaming enthusiasm I had when I was 10. I did all sorts of crazy challenges with them. No leveling up, no shield, magic only, punching only, miracles only...
II and III are both fun games, but I like the original best. II feels a lot more accessible in a good way, but there were some areas that just felt unfair-hard, rather than just super demanding hard like DS1. There would be a ton of enemies in one area, all totally unavoidable, and each of them is just like the random Hollow grunts in 1 who can tear a fully geared up character apart if you let your guard down. Still was a blast though. I got a good way through on my "punching only" character -- it was actually pretty viable. Made him look like Andrew W.K. too for laughs.
III is really cool so far, it seems like a "best of both worlds" thing, but my computer is a little too old to run it smoothly, and I would rather not shell out for system upgrades.
