          No, you are wrong. Regular fodder enemies in Elden Ring have more complex movesets and mechanics than bosses in DaS2.

                Literally yes. Almost every Fromsoft game is easy unless you deliberately choose not to utilize the tools that the game is presenting you with and clearly wants you to use. You have to choose not to use magic, you have to choose not to use spirit ashes (even though almost every single catacombs in the game rewards you with one when you beat its end boss), you have to choose not to use Moonveil or Bloodhound's Fang, you have to choose not to wear high poise armor or Dark Bead, you have to choose not to use Ichimonji Double, etcetera. The easy difficulty is opt-out, not opt-in.

                That's exactly what you do on games with multiple difficulty modes, because that's what it is in ER too. They've been doing this shitty form of difficulty modes since DaS1 and i hate it too. But i get it, it's targeted for morons that don't want to feel bad about playing in easy mode while also playing in easy mode

                No, you're choosing between "the game as it was intended to be played" and "handicapping yourself to feel like a 'real gamer'". Miyazaki didn't put these things in the game expecting that most people would find them, use them a couple times, then say "nah this makes things too easy, I'm going to not use this cool weapon they clearly put a lot of time and energy into designing" and put it in the box. He put them there expecting players to use them. That is the baseline difficulty.

                touché, you must've been one of these Black person morons i referred to.

                To put it simpler for a monkey like you:

                Both serve the same ends; both the easy modes and the "accessibility" as FROM themselves call them, let you ignore 99% of the enemies mechanics.
                Both are made for braindead Black folk like you to monkey through the game with ease, as they completely nullify the "I just want as many players as possible to experience the joy that comes from overcoming hardship." ""overcoming hardship"" portion of the game that Miyazaki himself mentions, because, like with any other game's easy mode, let the player ignore any hardship and just monkey Black person brain through the game.

                It's not "handicapping yourself" as if that were true, then why don't just play any other game with difficulty modes in the easiest difficulty? you're just handicapping yourself interacting with the enemy mechanics the devs worked on for years lol just play easy mode and ignore them!! so dumb amirite!!

      Dark Souls 2 is unironically best Souls game even with it's shortcomings. I thought it was DaS before but when i had played DaS2 a bit more i realized the more you play it better it gets since it has some small nuanced details scattered around every bit of the game.

          It has more effort put into than other Souls games by far. It's so easy to notice if you had played it more than one playthrough. There are so many little details in it but it's a bit unpolished in some ways. If the development process wasn't botched it could have been even better.

                This is the spiritual successor of Dark Souls, not Sekiro or Bloodborne. FromSoftware has 2 ips specifically dedicated to stamina frickfesting and they decided to ruin the very ip that shouldn't be a stamina frickfest.

                And who gives a shit about boss fights in the long run? You're talking to someone with possibly over 5000 hours of PvP combined. The main story is a fun progression to the game, what keeps it active has always been the PvP, not PvE, and they RUINED IT.

                Any dumb goy who actually had the opportunity to play even DS3 can tell the massive gap in quality. Elden Ring is no short of hot garbage, especially because it not only has 0 (Z E R O) improvements over the previous titles it's actually WORSE in every way.

              People will shit on this, but it is absolutely undeniable that invasions and pvp generally have never been as bad as they are in Elden Ring. If I want to invade, I need to accept that it will almost always be a 1v3 (though tbh I've never been really interested in invading in these games). Perhaps more importantly, if I want to BE invaded, I need to either form my own gank squad or use a Taunter's Tongue, so effectively they've deleted impromptu/organic invasions entirely despite it being one of the features that made their games so unique as far back as Demon's Souls.

              Once I realized that I could just go afk in a safe spot and never have to worry about being in danger at all, it made me think about the fact that the only online features I was really utilizing were the player messages and bloodstains. Occasionally I'd attempt some "jolly cooperation" or try some blue/hunter shenanigans, only to realize that most of the time I wasn't helping new players, I was just getting summoned into an organized gank.

              It sucks and I honestly miss the days of getting invaded in the forest or the absolute insanity of Aldrich invasions or Bellbro shit. I'm really surprised they didn't do anything like that for the Mohgwyn Dynasty area or maybe Caria Manor/Raya Lucaria.

It's funny how the previous games give you ability to stunlock if you were to use regular R1s now that there is no point to that people simply just spam sprint attack since it's so good there is no point of using regular R1s. You either sprint attack or jump attack after sprinting towards the enemy.

          People started complaining about the PvP system when they downgraded the covenant system in DS2, instead of improving the interesting albeit not very complex system we had in DaS. And then went on to reduce the number of players per session despite ER being an open world game that should allow for at least 30 players per session, with a classic mode that limits that number to 6 players or a PvP mode that goes full 30.

            The point of Elden Ring pvp isn't to be an MMO server, it's to have your buds try and beat as much of the game for you as possible before you all get slaughtered by a red. Having 24 additional bodies doesn't further this goal, it would just mean an army of whites kill everything in the overworld before you even get to see it. Every field boss dies off screen. That's the opposite of fun. That's actually the worst idea ever.

              The host and his buddies are the protagonists, they're the only ones in control of the main game, everyone else has their own covenant focused on hunting people from other covenants, with only 3 invaders belonging to convenants dedicated to hunting down the player. That's it, open world PvP where covenants make sense in a 30-player session.

                The odds of that happening are slim to none in an open world game. At best you'd get little skirmishes here and there but mostly 1 on 1s, it's basically a soft battle royale, rather than a battlefield.

                If it's a bunch of 1v1 battles between random phantoms who are totally unrelated to the hosts' activities that occur from beyond the draw distance from the hosts perspective, why are they even in the hosts world? This is not what invasions are meant to be. Host summons whites. Reds kill them. Blues are supposed to kill reds but in practical terms just feed the reds kills and estus.

          If you're going to have an open world, it should have both of these.

Most open worlds are half-assedly filled in by comparison.

For me it just felt like the majority of the game was waiting for somebody to whiff an attack, then doing R1>R1 to punish. It was somehow even more boring than DkS1 bass pro shop BS fishing merry-go-round.

      the problem is that people expect too much. you want 'realistically'? well all they can 'realistically' do is continue to refine the combat, because that's why these games are popular. even the older games, which some swear aren't combat-centric in the same way newer entries are- are heavily built around combat and to a lesser extent exploration. that's all you need to do. make those better and people will continue playing. of course, for some this will never be enough, they yearn for more. they probably won't get what they want, even if fromsoft took a laundry list of items like and incorporated them in the future.

        Because the dungeons suck and there aren't enough character mechanics. Dungeons should challenge the player's build and playstyle because no tool should be a good fit for every encounter. The open world is an extreme example of this because you're just riding Torrent from grace to grace. And this is the least punishing game when it comes to dying, players don't have any reason to avoid death so the entire dynamic that the souls games were founded on (and ER is a souls title in all but name) collapses.

        And I get that. I really like the art direction too, but you have to admit that it’s ultimately shallow in the end. I understand the guy is big on environmental storytelling, which is a cool concept, but the idea is that the environment is supposed to suggest a story, if not a story then lore. But to call Elden Ring’s story a story is a reach and while there is a ton of lore, it’s very contrived weird cliche’s of medieval fantasy. In truth, there is no story and there is no substantive lore, just the cliches. As for the combat, I guess that’s preference. I think theee should be an option to make it more accessible for the simple fact that the combat ends up boring as is. You just block or dodge four billion times and that’s the game. lol ok. If you guys like that, whatever, but I think that’s an objectively shitty game if that’s all it is. The art direction and cool animations or spells or whatever don’t really make up for it because it’s just surface level.

        >if it isn't directly spoonfed to you like a ubishit game there's no story

        What lore are you talking about exactly? You realize the lore in Elden Ring is basically nonsense right? It quite literally is just a mountain of medieval fantasy cliches. It’s not even like an alternative geography or history. It’s like “Arwen the Damned’s finger was lost to the Lake of Soulfire”.

          • 2 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            It is. Lore is supposed to be a body knowledge that undergirds the whole world and its narrative, but the lore really has basically nothing to do with the world. In fact all of the people and things or events that the lore alludes to can just be name swapped and it would be exactly the same. You could literally change all the events and everything and the game is exactly the same. It’s not even fundamental. And as for narrative, there just isn’t any. Lote typically suggests an overarching narrative to history. There’s an aspect of it which suggests a tradition through history. That’s what makes it lore. But if you have no story, you have no history. And no, “Gander the Sullen was felled at the roots of the great gloomtree” is not a narrative in itself. It’s merely a part of a narrative. And that’s the problem with this game. It’s just parts piled on top of each other without the framework that’s supposed to connect them. I mean, you’re really just lying if you say it’s good. You know it’s not. You know the game was boring and dumb. You probably didn’t even have a good time playing it.

                But don’t you see how you’re just affirming what I’m saying. You’re doubling down on the lore being great and you’re attaching a picture of the golden tree I guess to support that, but that’s not lore. That’s just a visual. A tree on the horizon is not lore.

              There's plenty of lore it just went over your head because it isn't spoonfed to you like in a Bethesda game. In From games you have to piece together the story like solving a mystery, and that's part of the appeal to us. Also much of the story is esoteric and defies the way that time and space operate in our world as we know it

I don't play racing games because I don't enjoy them, but I don't go into racing game threads and tell them how bad their favourite games are and how I dont understand why anyone likes them

            I love Dark Fantasy. I just want it to have more than surface level substance. You know? A bunch of disparate chapters which read nicely but ultimately have nothing to do with each other doesn’t make for a good novel, and a novel for all of 30 minutes dark fantasy environment doesn’t make for a good video game. Elden Ring could’ve been great, but it wasn’t. It was shitty.

            Elden Ring is by far the most diverse open world ever made, let alone the most diverse Fromsoft game. DS3 was the game with tonal homogeneity.

            How exactly do you imagine it was diverse? The Lands Between is totally one-note. The whole thing is this sort of grim dark fantasy decay from start to finish.

Every area has the same palette swap enemies + one or two unique enemy types that only exist around one particular spot. Every area is traversable the same way via torrent. Every area behaves the same way in regards to the day cycle. Every area has the same points of interest (side dungeons, ruins, evergaols etc.) and the same roaming field bosses.

        They should improve both. It's honestly weird to me that the legacy dungeons have a huge amount of geometry that's barely used for gameplay purposes. Meanwhile you can traverse almost every part of the open world but it doesn't really demand anything of the player so it ends up being boring. Something that I would've liked to see is the big dungeons having multiple entrances and parts. Kinda like Leyndell has the sewers or Stormveil has the back exit (although it's blocked from the other side) so they aren't just dead ends but rather loop around and are better integrated into the open world around them. On my first playthrough, I just naturally assumed that the two tunnels in Limgrave and Weeping would lead into Stormveil and Castle Morne respectively, like secret entrances into different extensions of the dungeons that eventually exit into the other parts. And I ran around the base of Raya Lucaria thinking there would be an actual dungeon-like path there for people who don't get the gate key and want to sneak in anyway. The way the game presents itself to a new player gave me the wrong impression.

    Maybe they can just keep pumping out DLCs for ER forever while making new games that aren't fricking Soleslikes forever. AC6 was alright, but I mean more like that fairy detective VR game. Just some weird experimental shit. Maybe Cookie and Cream 2.

      Old games have a better flow to their fights, in that there's more consistent tells when it's cool for you to attack them back. A lot of ER bosses are programmed with a 33% chance to do a quick follow up attack to pretty much any of their moves, so aside from like 1 attack out of their entire moveset, hitting them back is risking trading hits. There's a reason why webms like

      >PvP is garbage
      Based, pvp is cancer. You being the living proof

      always feature a colossal weapon that posture breaks the boss in like 4 hits. The way you get around this mechanic is to stunlock the boss to death with near-instant posture breaks. The boss can't hit you in the middle of your attack animation if he's on his ass. I will admit that it makes fighting many of the game's bosses a pain in the ass if you're not rocking a 2handed colossal build.

        >A lot of ER bosses are programmed with a 33% chance to do a quick follow up attack to pretty much any of their moves
        Souls games have combos of variable chains and follow ups since the original Dark Souls, at no point that's an issue, especially because faster weapons will easily allow players to react to the attack UNLESS it is spamming attacks instead of properly reading animations and answering to them. And it's hilarious that you are claiming that Elden Rong is about stunlocks when every single boss fight in Dark Souls can be easily overpowered with faster lighter weapons R1 spam which will stagger even DLC bosses multiple times over, possibly one of the biggest flaws of Dark Souls 1 and 2 was the inane stagger potential that light attacks had to the point of making every option nearly worthless and relegating heavier attacks to situational alpha strike 1hk fishing. People use heavier weapons in Elden Ring because they enjoy it

          >since the original Dark Souls
          Any specific examples? I don't really remember variable chains showing up until DkS2. Velstadt was the first time I remember seething at a boss changing its combo around depending on how I positioned myself.
          Also cool webm.

            Gwyn, Manus and Artorias will often do extra final attacks or follow ups. A lot of their combos have chains based on conditions like players getting hit or their position. Even Queelag will vary its melee combo or even just use the first step, and have fire breath change depending on how close you are. Titanite Demon has a finisher to the double sweep which is a thrust attack, if you are close enough, usually avoided by strafing to the right.
            Souls games are balanced around PVP, so mindlessly bashing the boss will lead to retaliation. There's a reason there's no combos based on input chain, anybody crying about mixups just mashes trying to react on a pattern they memorized in a very bland way, rather than actually reacting step by step to the opponent as if their were playing with a real person. Heavier weapons giving initiative and ability to trade several attacks is countered by lighter weapons having much lower committment and muxups are VITAL to such balance. Manus hand slam can be followed up by a combo smashing its catalyst or just have him rest the hand, a thrusting sword build can take the chance and at any point after the fast attack execute an immediate roll.

      Not really, no. DeS, DS1 and DS2 were adventure games and much of the time the difficulty came from being underleveled/undergeared or having to fight multiple enemies at the same time. And from having limited stamina. ER gives you so much stamina that you often forget that it's even a mechanic.

          He didn’t though. He was hired as a consultant, not as a writer. And what he consulted on was not a narrative and not lore. They had him advise a rough and loose backstory to the lore, that ultimately was a backdrop for designing the lore, but not the lore itself and is not even in the game. Besides, Martin sucks and ASoIaF sucks so.

                I can agree with that, but it’s beautiful precisely as a juxtaposition of an interplay. When it’s the whole world and it’s totally saturated with it, it’s just morbid or boring, which is what Elden Ring is. It’s certainly not properly Gothic. Japanese people don’t get gothic art or architecture so this is what they think it is, but it’s not.

        I guess it’s not universally bad but I would say it’s generally bad because the claim is that the game is a AAA blockbuster, one of the best games ever made, ultra-saturated with rich lore, and is a very “adult” game that demands a high degree of engagement. That’s true only in regard to difficulty if it’s clichés. For example, somebody that has a passing familiarity with medieval literature is likely to find this game basically unplayable because it’s so dripping with stupid “clichés”. For me, that’s not the issue though. For me, the issue that I find it to be largely clichés and nothing but. I could give examples of how this ultimately let me down while I was playing, but I won’t unless you want to hear one or two.

    Fromsoft undeniably did a very good job when it comes to designing the open world in terms of how it frames locations for the player and uses landmarks to guide them and keep them oriented even without excessive use of the map (though I think it peaked in the first view you get of Limgrave and especially entering Liurnia).

    The problem is what they chose to populate the world with. The moving caravans are decent, though because of how resting works you'll always find them in exactly the same places. The "Eye of Sauron" tower was a great idea because it forces the player to actually engage in something in the open world. But a lot of the set pieces you come across don't really give you a reason to engage with when you can just ride Torrent through and pick up all the items with very little risk to yourself even at minimum vigor. I would have liked to see more spontaneous events in the world, more stuff that happens at certain times of day (and not just night-only bosses), more open combat between enemies of different factions.

        That's also a good one. When you clear Fort Haight and it becomes populated by demi-humans instead of knights, I was hopeful there'd be more stuff like that in the game...but it really was just a one-and-done. Imagine if you could return to Stormveil late game and now there are new enemies and items and obstacles because once you cleared it out some other faction came in and took over. Or maybe you return to Castle Morne and instead of Edgar going to Liurnia for some reason and invading you he's now brought the Misbegotten back under heel and has become wicked and cruel in his grief.

      Yeah, the world should have more stuff going on in it that requires engagement and is interesting, rather that being an almost purely interstitial space that only serves to look pretty and connect dungeons. This problem just becomes increasingly apparent on replays. Alternatively, a "Big Lordran" approach, where the open world has less open plains with full 360 degree navigational freedom, and more intersecting pathways that tie interesting areas together, could be nice. I don't know how you do this while keeping an open world feel, though, instead of just making the game feel like a metroidvania. Maybe it's fine if it just feels like a metroidvania.

      As it is, I have to force myself to engage with open world stuff, for no reason other than the game becomes a lot of boring riding if I don't. Or I can do TT runs so I occasionally get ejected from Torrent by an invader or something. Still, I shouldn't have to puzzle over how to force myself to play the game to make it fun.

    I never got the "criticism" that the loot in the side dungeons is "useless." Yeah the item you get from that side dungeon might not be useful for the one specific build you're rocking right now. But if you respec or just play the game more than once, it will be. I chart a different route through every area every time I want to use a new build. This is something I've watched Ganker universally praise since DS2 released, and ER is literally just this same concept but better because there's fewer branches of yore statues to cuck your progress with. Only now this is badwrongcringe because some homosexual contrarians on Discord can't handle good games being good and their NPC programming compels them to turn on it.
    And even then, you still get souls to level your character with. There's so much b***hing and moaning about the game being too hard coming from dumb c**ts who are obviously underleveled. Like, the reason you're getting ohko'd in the Haligtree is because you're still SL80 and have only 25 VIG you fricking moron. The game expects you to be level 200 at that point. Go back and kill more things to get stronger. You know, play the fricking videogame you fricking paid for, dipshit. This is the most moronic criticism ever.

      I just wish more catacombs gave more than spirit ashes as a final reward. Like give me an ash AND an item I might use. On subsequent playthroughs I just go deep enough to get whatever item I needed then leave without even fighting the boss because it's just another ash.

        There are tons of them with real rewards though. Like the Hero Tomb next to Leyndell gets you the tree sentinel set for solving the puzzle and the crucible knight set for beating the boss.

        I like getting ashes even if I don't use all of them because they give you context about all the different enemy types. It feeds that anthropologist spirit the game has going for it.

          The "Hero graves" are different from Catacombs. Gelmir's Hero's Grave, Auriza, Sainted, Fringefolk, and Giant Conquering all feel like "boss versions" of the standard Catacombs. The actual ones called "Catacombs" often do not have rewards befitting their difficulty.

          Catacombs whose final bosses reward only Ashes:
          >Stormfoot
          >Murkwater
          >Impaler's
          >Tombsward
          >Cliffbottom
          >Road's End
          >Unsightly
          >Minor Erdtree
          >Caelid

          Catacombs whose final bosses reward something other than or in addition to Ashes:
          >Deathtouched
          >Wyndham
          >Leyndell
          >War-Dead

          Edge Case:
          >Black Knife (Has two bosses, the optional one has non-Ash rewards)

          Caves, Tunnels, and Graves are almost always worth completing on subsequent playthroughs, either for certain builds, smithing stones, or bell bearings. But Catacombs are mostly just something you run through, grab an item you need, then get out without doing the boss (unless you're really hard up for Runes).

              Who said anything about legendary weapons? The game has 49 armor sets (many of which are 4 pieces) and 76 weapons that can only be obtained by farming enemies, with drop rates ranging from 0.5% to 4%.

              I would unironically prefer if a dungeon had a chest after the boss containing the entire Lucaria Footsoldier Set or a Weathered Straight Sword than only a Spirit Ash.

            Cliffbottom was a fun catacomb, but still too short for my tastes. I actually like the catacombs because each one has at least one idea behind it, but ultimately there should've been fewer catacombs that were larger and used more of those ideas per dungeon instance.

              It’s unironically less boring and bland than Elden Ring. At least Skyrim has an actual story and real lore, NPCs that are more than just what a Japanese guy thinks medieval fantasy is.

                Elden Ring's writing is so much better than Skyrim's that it's an insult to compare them. You prefer the latter because it's written for brown morons like you.

        Hopefully they can do both styles because Elden Ring falls has a lot of the same problems that other non-open world game series ran into when they went open world. Many people out there prefer the tighter experience of Arkham Asylum vs City/Knight for example. Same deal with Souls/Bloodborne vs ER.

          No it doesn't. In Elden Ring each dungeon is unique and tested for PVP. In Arkham Knight you'll end up doing dozens of samey task like defeating waves of tanks and then defusing the bomb shit, and there's no unique weapons, talismans or upgrade materials giving meaningful rewards. There's nothing tight about AK open world, it's literally choke full of collectibles that lock you from defeating a villain

            There’s no getting around open world games often feeling empty. There’s a good reason people often favorably compare Souls/Bloodborne to Castlevania. A lot of people prefer the more compact experience.

      Sure, but, and you can correct me if I’m wrong, ER was supposed to be the most accessible of these games as well as the most like what people who never played DS or BB are used to playing. It wasn’t supposed to be like a DS spinoff like BB as far as I know. I think a lot of people expected something like a grimdark Breath of the Wild, but it’s really nothing like that. It’s just DS with a different veneer, which is not what it was supposed to be afaik. What’s weirder is that it was so widely celebrated. Usually, when a game wins GOTY and is pushed by streamers, it’s because it’s an accessible game, not an ultra-niche game for an ultra-niche audience of die hard fans that despise 99% of other games.
