Has Pyromancy been super buffed or something since 2016? I only got to play the game this year but the game was almost too easy as a Pyromancer

Haven't played this one yet, I started with Bloodborne and I'm currently playing Dark Souls 2: SotFS on PS4. I plan on getting this and the Remaster of the 1st game sometime in the near future. I agree with you, I want more even if it is the same concept rolled into a different game. I don't find DkS2 or Bloodborne to be too difficult, a lot of the difficulty is the same as any other game. Learn the enemy attack patterns so you can dodge or counter them, bait enemies and don't run into groups. Only difference is this doesn't hold your hand like a lot of modern games do. I played Bloodborne 50/50 solo and online co-op and at the moment I don't have PS Plus so I am playing DkS2 100% solo. I'll probably have to do the same for this game when I get it too.

Ian Kelly (20 days ago)
Didn't like it at all. Kept getting clobbered over and over by the first boss. Gave up in the end. Much too difficult for me. Would like to see more of it as it does look good but a pity you can't adjust the game difficulty.

I was playing DS1 backwards compatible and it felt sluggish. I ended up stop playing it because of that, but idk if it was because of it being backwards compatible or if that's how the games are. So now idk if I should get DS3. What do you think?

Wade Grimm (2 months ago)
You know it took me 2 years to beat all of ds1 ... *cough* seath's tail. But ds2 i beat in just under a month so other than the difficulty seeming a little nerfed it was still awesome. I'll let you know.
Raidon Sub (2 months ago)
I really wanna try I've heard it has a good story, but I don't know how I feel about spending hours trying to defeat a boss and knowing me I don't think I'll be that great at the game either.

Literally only accepts input from an Xbox One controller and nothing else. Using a third party program to remap your buttons will get you banned. Fuck japan.

Wish they made bloodborne and demon souls for the Xbox. I can't stand the PlayStation controllers. Xbox one controllers feel better to hold and I think the games are way more fun on Xbox. Just am opinion. I have PS and like them both

Primal (4 months ago)
I'm not a big fan of this game. I do appreciate the fan service and it doesn't bother me that there's a lot of it, as for designs, art and soundtrack, I can't find flaws. However, Dark Souls 3 has such a tragic inconsistency that permeates in nearly every aspect of its design and it really makes it almost borderline unplayable for me. The healing system is diabolical. Its perfectly balanced for boss fights but not balanced at all for getting through levels. You are more often than not forced to skip a lot of enemies, which undermines the sense of pushing through an area and overcoming the preliminary challenge. The difficulty spikes are so random and you don't really feel like you are learning or making any progress, the difficulty has the tendency to jump from the joke-like firelink shrine tutorial dummys to a tedious reincarnation of horsefuck valley diffculty and it doesn't feel enjoyable, nor do you feel a sense of reward. Similarly to DS2, there's also a real inconsistency in boss design, however in DS2 it was more acceptable because there were 42 of them. In DS3 around 80% of the boss fights are poorly designed. Many times, you go though areas that are painful only to fight a disappointing boss, it's so anti-climatic considering how few bosses there are in DS3. Darkeater Midir, Slave Knight Gael and the Demon Prince duo were brilliant, Soul of Cinder, Pontiff and Exile Knight were also pretty fun, but many of the other bosses are just lackluster. They are either poorly designed spammers like Aldrich, another Royal Rat Vanguard clone (deacons) and the rest are all witches of hemwick. In Bloodborne, other than the celestial emissary, One Reborn, Witches of Hemwick, Living Failures, and Micolash. The rest of the bosses were extraordinarily well designed, even the chalice dungeon bosses. Even the weakest of the good ones, Mergo's Wet Nurse was fun to fight and the rest were incredible... Gehrman, Lawrence, Orphan, Maria, Gascoigne, Blood-Starved Beast, Bloodletting Beast, Abhorrent Beast, Amygdala, Pthumerian Elder/Descendent, Watchdog of the Old Lords, Ludwig, Amelia, Rom, Ebrietas etc... There's a sense of consistency there that is hard not to love. This game is too short but unlike Bloodborne, feels like it has no replay value, in fact, it just feels boring going through. Few of the bosses are enjoyable and even fewer areas are. On console, the animations in this game feel so jagged, clunky and stuttery, it doesn't feel responsive, the framerate is just awful and it feels really unpleasant and poorly optimized. It feels like animations are too fast, but the frame rate is too low so you can see jitter. Some people might say that it's because it's 30fps, but this is completely false, because Bloodborne is also 30fps and Doesn't have any of these issues at all. I think it's more like the desired motion speed of animations and frame rate feel out of sync, and therefore theres too much frame skip which is really unpleasant on the eye. this game is trying too hard to be a blend between bloodborne and Dark Souls without making the necessary compromises, it just takes elements from both without making the right adjustments. The enemies have bloodborne style attack patterns, so they are more aggressive, attack faster, lunge more, have less openings and are not designed to be blocked with a shield. In BB, shields are useless and in DS3 it feels like shelds have same issue unless your END is through the roof, because enemies seem to have infinite stamina and spam attacks. The problem is, you play and attack as if it's a dark souls game, so you are always slower than your enemies, you are always forced to either spam roll or play overly defensively, because your defense will otherwise continually fail you. Enemies have eyes in the back of their head and can't be punished for mistakes with anything other than parry spamming, yet you are punished even when playing properly. There is this imbalance, and it feels like the Bloodborne influences hurt the game because you don't have the trick weapons that were designed to be used against those enemies AI patterns. You instead have the useless shields and a terribly inconsistent array of weapons, from overpowered short swords to weapons that just aren't fast enough to cope. This game is punishing and unfair, enemies do not play by the same rules and are often given artificial difficulty to an overly unbalanced extent. It feels like a dark souls downgrade that isn't as good as dark souls and a bloodborne wannabe that isn't anywhere near as good as bloodborne.

The community are hackers and twinks and ganks. Move on to a game that deserves us. They don’t care about invaders they screw them over. Game is terrible imbalanced.

Playing through Bloodborne right now for the first time; loving it! I have never played any of the Souls games but am planning on getting DS3 for PS4. Will I be lost in the story if I haven't played any of the previous games?

It's been 2 years. I'm still stuck on...the abyss watchers and nowhere near beating this game, lost interest and moved on. There's just something about boss battles where this a nasty 2nd half that I couldn't seem to find the pattern to.

What if you've NEVER played a souls game.... cause that second area is hard as fuck for me. Idk if I suck or if it's just normal for a newcomer... it's addicting though. It's a shame it's so hard because the combat is so fucking well done.

you know what would make games like this better, and all games like these in general? FUCKING GORE(Dismemberment/Evisceration/Decapitation/Gibs/etc). I'm sick and tired of slicing and exploding and fire and just a little blood? Fuck you. Immersion broken. This is why I had to download the Deadly Mutilation mod for Skyrim and the Dismemberment mod for GTA V. It's an immersion breaker for me. Other than that, I'm still able to enjoy these games.
Deftones 26 (7 months ago)
Wow this game is from the makers of BLOODBOURNE but has knights and a fantasy world, I'm definitely in.
