        Replaying it now and it's even better than I remember.
        One thing I noticed is that it and the prequel are more or less the only two major "lighthearted" Soulslikes out there which make them stand out quite a lot for me besides the SF setting.
        There is lots of silly shit in them like the DLCs, calling one of the main bosses Fallout2-style, hanging out in night clubs and around bongo players, the "THE END IS NEAR!"-sign dude who later changes to ""TOLD YOU SO!", some soldier petting one of the small nanite monsters and much more.

          Also, the game seems to not bullshit you.
          No extreme shitboxes, no "lol, I grabbed you from three meters away while you were behind me" garbage moments and the camera zooms out during larger enemies and you can go even further by increasing the fov.

      Love me souls.
      'ate every clone. simple as.
      But really, none of the clones capture what I love about the From's games, and it's just some magic touch they have. I don't think DS2 is very fun in any way but I played it for like 200 hours when it originally released because it was the newest one and clones weren't a thing. But going back I can't be fucked to play it after trying and disliking games like Nioh 1 and 2, Code Vein (I pre-ordered this one before it got delayed too, SUCH a disappointing fucking game), Mortal Shell, Thymessia.
      And it's not the gameplay that draws me to From's games, it's the way they feel, the environments, the From token features like Patches and shit.
      I went and played Armored Core, starting with the first one earlier this year and that series is amazing, and I can still see the Souls DNA in it with how the customization works, the storytelling, the characters.
      They just have this touch, and everyone is so hell bent on trying to clone them, they just miss the mark completely.

        I guess what draws me to their games is they are GAMES first and foremost, with gameplay and player action and reaction being the core focus beyond anything else. The few other games that I can think of that have this same focus are Left 4 Dead and Resident Evil 4.

      This is mostly gonna depended on what you’re looking for. The real big AAA studios haven’t tried to tackle Souls because they’re too busy having their teams make the next CoD or 2K game. So that’s why so many AA/indie studios are taking a crack at it.

      Code Vein was a solid attempt but it’s environments are really bland and the character designs are super anime.

      Lords of Fallen was ridiculed by the Souls base for being worst than DS2

      Thymesia is more like Sekiro but since no one here played it they just assume it’s another roll spam game

      Steelrising has great ideas like the overheat system but the game is janky so the fluidity of genre doesn’t carry over as well

      Nioh is probably the best attempt but even then it’s a game that has more mechanics happening and that might be a turn off to some people

        After playing through Nioh 1 and 2, I honestly can't say that it plays like Souls at all. It feels more like a typical action game from the ps2 era than it does DaS, even post-BB DaS.

        The game was surprisingly competent. The best feeling movement/combat out of the bunch. Plus you can Sekiro cling clang vs enemies, bosses especially. Doesn't outstay it's welcome either. Pleasantly surprised all around.

        With regards to Thymesia all they really needed to do was to look super closely at the reasons why the Sekiro deflect works so well and copy it 100%. If you hit a perfect deflect you know instantly, it feels great, the enemy responds, your character responds, the hit spark, the audio, the animations changing depending on what attack is coming in.

        Thymesia cheaped out on almost all of that so hitting deflects never really feels great to do because aside from the debuff the enemies get from it next to nothing shown the player. You do the same knife animation, the enemies don't respond, no confirmation hit spark or audio line.

        The World building was actually pretty great, and for an indie game it actually looks pretty nice in areas, the plague motifs were completely wasted IMO. The Plague Doctor mask/Crow ideas never really led to anything.

      It's not a big studio. So if they paid for French actors, the whole world will complain that they don't speak frog. When you only have enough money for one set of voiceline, you take english.

      The reason for this is that most Americans think French accents sound hilarious or annoying so they're bending the knee to our tastes.

    Thymesia was floaty garbage with enemies that did respond to being smacked in the face and main character that felt completely disconnected from the World.

    Everything I've seen about Steelrising even though I was looking forward to it somewhat looks exactly the same. Why is it so hard to just copy From? The Surge had the same issue with ice skating characters animation sliding towards you.

    Anyone please tell me wtf is wrong, the game arbitrarily decides not to show the Y prompt in order to cool off my stamina overheat. Sometimes it's instant and the prompt appears, some other time it doesn't and I'm stuck waiting for 5 seconds without being able to do anything else. Does the prompt show up depending on the last action that depletes stamina? This is driving me crazy and got me killed a bunch of times already.

      From my experience if you push Y too early it does that

      Is it not if you deplete the meter completely it makes you over heat for 5 seconds or whatever. Like being put into a fatigue state.

        I don't think so, unless the tutorial pop up is wrong

        that might be it, maybe I'm pressing Y too early? Though I really doubt this is my fault when I'm not even near the Y button and I await until the prompt shows up? I'll experiment more later

    The challenge really isnt there so far at all, this is like babysouls for actual retards and journalists. Jedi Fallen Order was way more difficult than this, and it was still very easy

        Did they redesign the game a lot from the demo or something? The demo at least required me to think to get through it.

          The areas from the demo aren't in the early access. It goes Fishery, Cave and then like an outdoors forest-y sort of area.

          The main problem was that the very open nature of the areas meant you had as much space as you could ever possibly need so you always had somewhere to escape to when you were at risk of being spotted. The areas in the demo were much tighter by comparison

          I'm just hoping it gets much harder when you get to the town because yeah the wide open plains areas kind of sucked

    Has there ever been a third party souls clone that wasn't complete jank?

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Depends on how you're defining jank.
      Code Vein was polished, so not jank, but not as good as it could've been with a world laid out like DaS3 and largely bland environments dragging down the solid combat and good build variety.
      Hellpoint is very jank with awkward animations and combat, but it's the only Souls clone I'm aware of* that has a great sense of atmosphere and exploration in a huge non-linear setting. Basically it's the only one that got right the thing that was actually most interesting about DaS.

      *Salt & Sanctuary also had good exploration, but being 2D separates it a bit.

        I meant mostly for the combat/general control feel. I played Code Vein ages ago but I remember it feeling rather floaty and weightless especially with the larger weapons.

          I dropped it because enemies just don't react to getting hit by a giant weapon and the weapons feel like made out of foam, magic is also utter shit, the game is unpolished jank.

    how come theres like 30 games each year that try their best to replicate souls formula and not a single one even comes close? even in terms of combat, its always either floaty and imprecise, where you dont feel the weight of a strike or clunky and super slow.

      steelrising actually feels good to play. fast is fast, and slow hits fucking hard with good clank feedback. the thing that sucks is enemy variety and typical AA shitty dev optimization and bugs. also marketing was shit so no one even knows the game exist compared to Lies of P.

      the reason souls is good is because
      A. its AAA, and
      B. the world design and enemy variety (excluding elden ring) is crazy good, along with the bosses. people take for granted these things, yet these copycat devs struggle to do that every time.

      and souls has this...classic fantasy feel to it. like dungeons and dragons almost. all these copycats are always doing some weird stylized shit, like mortal shell or this game, or code vein, lies of P, etc. gimme a game like dragons dogma with standard goblins, elves, etc but with souls combat and world design and sign me the fuck up.

    Game looks like they took the existence 'eurojank' games to mean 'we get a free pass for not even trying'

  48. 3 weeks ago
    >>611596520

    CV is made of copy and paste as early as the swamp area, had the greatsword (the slow power weapon) specials be faster than all the speed weapons (what were they thinking), enemies would just ignore hitstun when they felt like it (making all slow actions, which were ironically on the fast weapons, not worth using), incredibly boring progression and powers and was a game where you play as 'not-vampirs' who remove the need to care about blood 5 mins in.
    It was poorly polished, balanced and written set in a half-ass world that resulted from far too much CTRL+V.

    The Surge/2 tie game-changing passives (like ripostes being free) into gear sets. So if you like free ripostes, for example, changing any gear at all makes the game less fun. Changing gear is how progression works in those games. They're RPG's that actively make you not want to progress. What the fuck were they thinking?

    DarkSouls 3 just uses maggot men, maggot dog or 'a group of 3 to 5 11 foot tall dudes who run at you at once and rapidly attack' with the occasional 'got you!' 1 shot kill from cieling humpers, over and over again, it has basically functionally no enemy variety at all, the magic system is a step down and the world is just 'lol remember darksouls'.

    Salt and Sanc has digustingly poor balance; simply casting defensive buffs and face-tanking things with a great sword, magic or scizzors trivialize all but 3 fights in the game, 2 of which are nearly immune to slash (so you just use magic or a mace) and one of which is so overtuned you die in 1 hit even though other bosses barely hurt you.

    Salt and Sanc 2 is 1 but progression is worse, the maps suck, the enemies are more annoying and its even uglier somehow (how the fuck do you get uglier than salt and sanc 1 goddamn)

      Elded Ring you get to some point when your stupid anime super powers are too strong for 99% of the enemies to matter at all and then you just stop playing the game because is too long and too open and too easy and even the social aspect isn't worth caring about anymore.

      Nioh's balance is fucked; all human enemies can't deal with Tonfa at all, all demon enemies can't deal with long-ranged weapons at all, nothing can deal with confusion, there's no enemy variety, people will defend it by saying "okay if you beat this trivially easy game then play 500 hours more you can fight maybe 1 boss that's a threat if you don't use the broken gear you got at this point or just confuse it or stun lock it just go easy on the game okay stop being good at easy games"

      Nioh 2 is Nioh 1 but the protag is a retarded self-insert now and it remembers it has more than 3 enemy types, but you're even more overpowered than 1 and now your tonfa can confuse people for free consistently.

      No Souls clone has been good, ever.
