      do you think rosaria and gertrude are the same person or two different people?

        Nope, different people.
        For me at least, it’s pretty much 99.99999999999% sure Rosaria is Gwynevere.
        Goddess of fertility, goddess of rebirth. Rosaria’s soul is clearly twisted and fucked up. The whole Leonhard questline that leads you to Gwynevere’s chamber. The fact that after birthing Ocelotte Gwynevere dissapeared. And a few more parallels.

        Why the fuck is braille a thing that exists in the dark souls universe?

        Because blind people exist?

        are you an adult virgin?

        Nope. Far from being a normie but far from being a virgin. I’m just killing time

        Not him, but they are a different person. One would think that whats his face would not have taken her soul to Gwynevere’s chamber if they were the same. More support for her being Gwynevere, or maybe Gwynevere’s mother?

      Which game is your favorite? Which is the objective best?

      • #475586
        Anonymous
        Guest

        Objectively the best? As in, no "muh feelings" involved? Either 2 or 3. Each one has issues in different ways, but 2 has the feel of a gigantic adventure that no other souls games has, a colossal world filled with secrets that you can sink hundreds/thousands of hours in and still have missed tons of stuff, and 3 is the most polished and the most fun to play as.
        For me, 3.
        I played 1 first when it came to pc, disliked it a lot.
        Played 2, loved it
        Played BB, fucking loved it, bought a PS4 for it on 2 separate occasions, and typing this makes me want to get a PS4 from a friend, I have BB somewhere here, only console game I bought. Actually, only game I bought in like 16 years. I’m a piratefag
        Played 3, fucking loved it
        Emulated DeS, loved it.
        Can’t wait for Elden OOOo

        In the end I played BB and 3 over 35 times each and regularly do small runs of 3, 2 and sotfs over 15 times, 1 like 3 or 4 times. Sekiro like 6 or 7 times. I’ll play the LMTSR mod when I have some time

      Is Priscilla nameless king’s daughter?
      I know the gwyniwere and the white dragon bullshit, but why Gwyn would offer his daughter to a dragon? seems like normies didn’t got the lore right
      It sounds more reasonable that Gwyn erase his son from history because he fucked a dragon (female) and she had Priscilla and then he enclosed Priscilla in the painted world

        >why Gwyn would offer his daughter to a dragon?
        What if he didn’t know? What if it was behind his back? What if it was rape? What if he did not care much, after all Seath helped them btfo the dragons and he gave him parts of his SOVL. He can also abandon a daughter to pygmies in a city at the end of the world. Not really the best father.

        is the declining quality in the series a metaphor for something lore-related?

        Depends what you mean by declining. I think the games got better over time. The only thing I can think of that’s good in 1, is the interconnected world design… and that lasts for 1/3 of the game. Absolutely everything else is better in the following games. So objectively speaking, if everything is better in the sequels, then the sequels are better.

        How do I git gud? I still haven’t beaten DaS1.

        Bruh, just roll back when you see an enemy raise his hand and don’t button mash like a tard. I let my little brother play souls when he was high as shit, just told him "dodging is more important than attacking", he blitzed through the games.

        Why do they make horse clop sounds when they walk?

          I say that if retards got the lore wrong and Priscilla was nameless king daughter instead of seath, because that would make sense to Gwyn erasing all the archives of his son, plus making Gwyndolin a trap so he couldn’t dick a dragon like his old brother

            Nah, Gwyndolin was raised a daughter because of his affinity with the moon.
            Priscilla has dragon feature therefore implies dragon heritage which Nameless King does not. And yeah, he was erased from history because he sided with the dragons.
            If it’s not Seath, then it has to be some other dragon, but not Nameless.

                Well, in that case, why didn’t he take her with him to Archdragon Peak? Who might be the mother? Do we know femdragons?
                I mean, Seath was running experiments, the octopus girls in his archives, the jumping dudes kidnapping women, it was most likely an attempt at creating something new.
                She’s in Ariamis, a place where people dangerous to the gods are thrown. Why didn’t Nameless king take her with him since he was already in bad terms with the rest of the gods?
                Seath is more close to Gwyn than Nameless is.

          3 is literally a straight line, it’s an objective downgrade from 2, which was an objective downgrade from the good portion of 1.

          DS3 is only better than 1 and 2 in its combat.

              It also easily has the best enemy and boss design in the franchise. Which elevates it’s spammy combat to above the level of 1 and 2.

        she calls gwyndolin her brother but that could be just a sweet affectation or something snakelegs told her as a simple explanation
        or she could be another one of gwyn’s freaky progeny, or gwynevere’s daughter, or the nameless king’s daughter, or priscilla’s daughter

        I think people were trying to make the Greek gods connection even stronger with Priscilla. Gwyn is kind of the gods and throws lightning, therefore Zeus. So the beautiful goddess of love and fertility must have slept around behind her husband’s back just like Aphrodite did.
        I happen to roll with the idea that Gwyn’s firstborn was a dragon fucker, too, but there’s no hard evidence either way.

        I like the idea that she was another bastard or otherwise "undesirable" child of Gwyn.
        Once Gwyn was double dead and gone after the Chosen Undead put him down, Gwyndolin may have reached out to his last surviving family — another child of Gwyn that Gwyn never accepted during his life.
        Alternatively, they may have been full-blooded siblings or even twins. They both have that pale, thin, sickly appearance.
        The statues around Anor Londo in DS1 only show us Gwyn, Gwynevere, and the shattered remains of the firstborn. I like to think that Gwyn only reached out to and accepted Gwyndolin in the hopes of raising him up as a strong, bold son to replace the one he exiled. But when Gwyndolin turned out to be frail and moon-aligned, Gwyn said "fuck it, you’re a girl now."
        He had no need for yet another daughter, so Yorshka was left in obscurity until Gwyndolin took power and invited her to Anor Londo.

          I don’t like this. Part of what makes Nameless King great is the mystery surrounding the firstborn and what he’s up to now. We can’t have another child randomly come into the picture.

            Yes. The first director was a fucking retard that was running the game into the ground. A short time before release they called based Tanimura to somehow stitch a working game together. It’s a fucking miracle that he managed to make this.
            But the game is still fantastic and expands on many concepts of 1, and feels like a grand adventure, much more than 1.

            The original director was too ambitious for his own good. He kept coming up with new ideas and shoehorning them into the game fairly far into development, so FromSoft canned him and pulled in a new guy to make sense of the first guy’s scattered ingredients.

        The gods want the age of the gods to continue, even though this flies in the face of universal entropy. Nothing lasts forever, not even the magical flame that made the first gods into gods.
        It’s a question of continuing this artificial age of the flame gods or allowing it to die so that a new age of the dark (read: mankind) may begin.
        You can also see it as a conflict of order vs chaos, status quo vs change.
        The age of the dark is uncharted territory, and there are many cases of humans being overwhelmed by the darkness and becoming destructive abominations. But the age of fire is not perfect either. There is all kinds of corruption and injustice.
        Do you think the age of the gods is so shitty that literally anything else is better? Or is the chaos and uncertainty of darkness so frightening that you will prop up the current civilization, warts and all?

          They don’t turn into abominations, they return to what they are. Humans in the Age of Fire are constrained, and bound, their Humanity wanting to break free. In the Age of Dark, Humans return to their natural state, unbound and free.

            Fair point
            That is a more accurate summary of the dark in the DS context.
            Still, it speaks to the theme of humanity’s basic nature being bestial and destructive.
            Do we shed the trappings of civilization afforded to us by fire or do we go back to monke?

        The LEVEL design varies from good to fantastic. It’s the WORLD design that is lacking.
        And the WORLD is lacking because the first director wanted to make a weird type of open world games, even the higher ups said "bruv wtf u doin’", fired him and called Tanimura to somehow make a game in a few months.

        because it was both personal (we directly follow his steps into the Abyss, and the DLC with Sif), while also being a "mythical" figure in the lore. And then we’re given the fight to finally end his torment, because he was nothing more than a good man doing his duty til the end.

        I dunno, man. I always thoughts Artorias is overrated.
        Sure, he has a cool design and a tough-as-nails boss fight, but that’s not rare. What really sets him apart is how much other people talk about him or have ties to him — Sif, Ciaran, the Forest Hunters, etc. It gives him a sense of being larger-than-life even though he’s really just another thing to kill.
        How many bosses and enemies are examples of this once-great thing laid low by the ages? Artorias is not so unique.

        It’s simply what your character remembers. In the intro cutscene you are told you forget shit, you even forgot how your wife and child look like because of the curse.
        Why is it sunny, you go through a tunnel and boom, it’s night, raining and there’s a big castle?
        Why are some locations close by, and yet in the map in Majula it’s a huge ass continent.

        Sure they could have conveyed it much better, I agree, but lore wise, it’s simply what you remember from your journey. The boss, and a fucking castle sinking in lava, not the road inbetween

        Why are the angels that appear in the Dreg Heap so different compared to the butterflies that appear at Lothric Castle? Are angels the final form of humanity and the dark much like the Four Kings and the Darklurker?

      i have a tinfoil theory that has no real evidence to it at all, it would just fit in a really connective way

      the mother of Gwyn’s children is Velka who became the goddess of sin after Gwyn made the cardinal sin of abusing and sacrificing his children

      that’s why she is associated with heretical magic and creatures, that’s why she, through her agents, pushes the undead to subvert the gods

      If Gwyndolin was manipulating you to make you sacrifice yourself to continue the Age of Fire, why did he force you to fight through Anal Rodeo/have you kill Ornstein and Smough? Couldn’t he have just put the Lord Vessel at the Kiln of the First Flame and said to everyone "Go kill the Lords lmao" without having to bother with the entire first half of the game?

        this puts the Gods in danger of the Vessel going missing and the Age of Dark coming naturally. Gwyndolin needed someone to willingly, almost fanatically, follow through on the plan to link the Flame, otherwise the Age of Dark would arrive.
        Remember, the MC HAS to intervene to continue the Age of Fire. The Age of dark will always arrive, with or without intervention.

            He’s not particularly weaker than Ornstein in 1 when alone without Smough. Same attacks and shit, just dark corrupted, and it’s not a mid game boss so he has less HP. Plus you already know the fight.

              Short version, I’ll make a thread tomorrow when I’m not working so I’ll have time for longer answers.
              He’s corrupted by dark. Drangleic is in an age of dark. Gwynevere fled with Flann and founded Heide’s tower of flame. Ornstein most likely left his soul to Gwyndolin or someone when he went searching for the nameless king.
              One of the main themes of 2 is rebirth/reincarnation of souls and how they continue to excert an influance on the land after eons. It’s not a coincidence that he’s guarding a ruined cathedral where Gwynevere used to live.
              It’s not exactly Ornstein, it’s his soul if that makes sense.
              The "physical" ornstein left to find NK, and there 99.9999999999999999999999% chances he’s the stormdrake that fight with NK. I can provide arguments on that if you want.

              Tomorrow we can talk about the exact nature of Drangleic, I have some juicy stuff that I feel like many people overlooked.

              Check my post above. He left his soul, and went to Archdragon peak. His soul is responsible for Ornstein in 2. But he himself reached Archdragon Peak, and most likely became the stormdrake. Notice how his armor is not in a chest, not on a corpse, it’s simply thrown to the side, discarded. Dragon transformation requires you to be naked. Also it’s found just below the arena, not a coincidence. Also the stormdrake has a very unique model, and most of all, when he dies, NK absorbs his power in the exact same way Ornstein absorbs Smough’s power in 1. Considering he left a good while before the events of Dark Souls 1, he must have been in AP for a really really long time.

        pretty sure they’re not supposed to be the same zombies, they’re in the same spots and have the same weapons for sake of gameplay, but they’re supposed to be new zombies who hollowed while you were gone (same as how enemies respawn when you move too far away from where they died)

        I just saw the trailer and that 10 seconds clip from yesterday.
        Based on the trailer I’m fucking hyped like you can’t believe. The jump looks fucking awkward as fuck in the leak, I’m assuming it was some early build or something. No way this is the end result, especially after Sekiro. I really liked BB and 3, and Elden OOO looks like DaS3 with horses and open world. It’s FROM so I doubt it will be the basic open world formula.
        We have to little info so far, but the trailer was nice even tho it’s obvious they recycled so much, from animations, to assets, to bosses, the Yhorm looking dude, the Smough looking dude, the Anor Irithyll looking cathedral.
        I’m too old to give a shit, I don’t play vidya anymore, it’s the only game I’m interested in, I just want kino bosses like Gael, Orphan, Maria, Friede, Gundyr, etc… They set the bar super high in terms of bosses with 3, dropped the ball hard in Sekiro, I hope they kept the good ideas for Elden O

                I kinda liked his "How muh blood boils, face me, SEKIRO!", but it’s a huge step down from "Tonight, Gehrman joins the hunt" or "Aaah, is this the blood, the blood of the dark soul…"
                And yeah the soundtracks are really lacking in Sekiro.
                I listened to Gael’s soundtrack god knows how many times, or Vordt’s second phase that is on par with Tower Knight AH HA HA HA AH HA HA HA, or Watcher’s.

                    The soundtracks or the cutscene? Both are very good, but soundtrack wise I think it’s not as good as many of the scores in 3. "my true mentor, my guiding moonlight" is obviously great but I still have a soft spot for gehrman’s hunt and gael’s dark soul. I really liked the snail girl falling from the sky before the fight for some reason and the hunters in the blood river

                    I feel like phase 3 should have been more bombastic. Check Ongbal’s channel where he fight Isshin with the LMTSR mod, now THAT’s something fucking insane, Isshin in his prime.
                    There’s so much bombastic in Gael’s fight it’s overloading your sense, I really like that as a final fight. The airflips, the crossbow, lightning striking all over the place, the orchestra, his explosion of souls, the dude starts throwing boomerang of the gods, you go back to breathe for a second, THE ABSOLUTE FUCKING MADMAN INSTA TELEPORTS WITH SUMMON STONES WHAT THE FUCK then again airflips with his crossbow

        Again short version because I’m working and it’s 4:30am and I’m very sleepy and busy.
        For me, it’s related to the flame under Eleum Loyce. At this point I assume it’s agreed by everyone that the flame that Sully found under "a distant tundra of Irithyll", is the flame under Eleum Loyce. Who’s watching over the flame? Elsanna. Who is Elsanna? A shard of Manus.
        There is some fuckery going there, like fire mixed with dark, or maybe even abyss. The flame does not go out, which is not normal, all flames go out in souls games.
        Eleanora also tells you of the priestess related to a "certain Oracle", said oracle being Elsanna, the silent Oracle.
        There’s a lot of cut content with it, and I’m too sleepy to check all the item descriptions, but I feel like this is a good place to start.

        I don’t "hate" it, it’s obviously a fantastic game that I replayed multiple times, I just don’t like it as much as the sequels, BB, or even DeS which I played last.
        I feel like I wasn’t nearly as blown away by the shortcuts or the backtracking like some other anons, maybe because I’ve been playing vidya for over 26 years.
        I simply didn’t have nearly as much fun as with the other souls games. The one thing where DaS shines is its interconnected world, but when you think about it, this lasts for 1/3 of the game, before even Sen’s fortress, and all the rest are branching paths. I really fucking love upper burg tho, and Ariamis, the first 2 areas they designed, go figure.
