Fuck the late game bosses

I miss when bosses were difficult not because they had a gorillion health and 30 phases packed into one healthbar but because the whole fight from start to finish without any changes was difficult in of itself.

        Who the fuck plays with a guide on their first playthrough? By endgame your inventory should be full of weapons, summons, armor and talismans no matter what. You're only required to rub two brain cells together in order to figure out how to deal some damage, it shouldn't be hard.

            Ranni's ending might be one of the easiest quests in the soulsborne series. I got it without even trying. The only thinking required is to figure out where the ring could be, and the locked chest in her mother's chambers is not 90s adventure game to say the least

        seeing as how the first playthrough was a 120 hour slog, its dumb NOT to use a guide so you don't miss anything then you can drop it without putting in another 120 hours.

        That’s pretty much impossible in any souls game which is why they suck. I love Heckin giant lava bosses that require you to kill his finger through the mountain or it’s impossible. I love Capra demon that literally impossible unless you run up on the ledge. I love getting cursed and not being able to play the game unless you get an obscure item that wastes your time.

          I get that a lot of the shit is obscure in these games, but the things you listed are incredibly simple to figure out.
          >I love Heckin giant lava bosses that require you to kill his finger through the mountain or it’s impossible.
          Ceaseless Discharge is perfectly manageable without any exploits, you literally just dodge his finger and attack for 3 seconds.
          >I love Capra demon that literally impossible unless you run up on the ledge.
          All you need to do is run up the staircase (the focal point of his arena mind you) to kill the dogs and then deal with him
          >I love getting cursed and not being able to play the game unless you get an obscure item that wastes your time.

          >don't use the best tool for killing the boss. Purposefully gimp yourself to make the game fun. Except Elden Ring endgame bosses are tuned for Sekiro speed. They're just straight up not fun to fight no matter which way you do it. Cheesing shit isn't fun but chasing after bosses while they backflip to the other side of the arena and start doing 15 move combos isn't fun either. No matter which way you do it it's either boring or tedious.

              I never said that. But in Elden Ring the bosses often simply aren't fun to fight whether you cheese them or not. Especially the lategame ones. If you do them without cheesing they're often just tedious and frustrating and if you cheese them then they're boring.

          i like ER but his point remains valid no matter how you try to tunnel vision it. cheesing staggers with some broken tool isn't engaging, and that mentality of blasting enemies out of their infinite combo strings is basically the core of how the copypasta insists that ER gameplay is better. i would also disagree.

            Maliketh and Rennala are the only well-designed bosses in the pitifully small pool of unique bosses. Actually Radagon too, it's just that his fight is followed up by the immensely shitty Elden Beast. The balance between Maliketh's aggression and having pretty fair attacks overall, and his smaller health pool, is perfect. If anything he could use a small buff.

                Are you arguing with yourself? I didn't even elaborate, FromSoft bootlicker. The fact is, Elden Ring has some of the worst bosses in their history, and the fewest completely unique bosses of all the Souls games. They're boring, uninspired, copypasted, and just plain bad in some cases.

      >couldn't cope with the difficulty.
      >mage builds.

      Game is shit. some builds are shit some are too overpowered, some bosses and enemies have retarded movements wich are unfair and come as random shit out of the bag while there is no hint in any way when it comes to their abillities or poise (such as in bb and sekiro). most of the soul series games could easly be soloed by naked chars with basic weapons while with some enemies it can't be done in elden ring due to the fact that their atacks boil down to atack, get out rinse and repeat.
      Everything stated above are a few of the reasons why er sucks. I could go in even more detail but it doesn't matter since most of the er fags would feel personally atacked or would start schizo screetching at It

                Agreed. But Sekiro has a different philosophy designed around one weapon and occasionally using prosthetics and it's foolish to fault ER for not being as fine tuned as Sekiro. Just saying that in general not at you.

    Their health is fine, but their damage isn’t. In previous souls games hitting the first health softcap gave enough breathing room for pretty much any encounter. In ER, hitting the first softcap is the bare minimum otherwise half the attacks one shot you if you’re not stacking damage absorptions

          Well it ER has like one gimmick boss, so it doesn't have DeS aspect. It's an open-world, so being interconnected is a given. Combat is just DS3 but a bit faster, so maybe you'll like it. If you don't mind going through a ton of repetitive side-content to find a weapon you may enjoy, a lot of reused bosses/enemies and Dark Souls but bigger, then give it a try.

          heheh, bet you're glad we put a tether range on the AI so they didn't do something stupid, huh?

            Saved me the trouble of fighting him I guess
            What I described has happened on multiple playthrough when I was heading to Ranni, you know the one that sits outside of her tower. Every single time it just disappears, doesn't even have to be flying.

          They could stop being lazy shits and allow the dragons to dynamically perch on the environment, you know, like in Skyrim 10 years ago

    Goyslop: The game

    Got this game a week ago being the first "souls" game I've played and I gotta ask... when does it get interesting? I've played for 20 hours and I've yet to deviate from the same basic bitch combat of "dodge -> poke -> repeat". The exploration is fun and the world is nice to run around in but the combat is just.... dull? Tedious? You have no combos of your own and are entirely at the mercy of whatever the boss is doing and often I find myself just waiting for the boss to do something that lets me attack them only to die instantly if they happen to do an attack I haven't seen before that requires specific actions to avoid.

    Is this seriously all there is to it or am I missing something here?

      newer ones put a lot more emphasis on bosses, for better or worse

    Here's a cold hard fact that many people won't like hearing: If you think Elden Ring is easy in any way, then you cheesed the game in some way. The game is inherently difficult, and if you didn't find it to be difficult, then you did something to your playthrough that turned it into Easy Mode. Sorry, but it's the truth.
