    Okay, the fist riposte after a parry is AWESOME.

    Wasn't even sure this worked the first time I tried it with a caestus, but I parried one of the undead soldiers outside the parish, and riposted with a fist shot. It basically hammered him with a kidney punch, which dropped him to his knees, then the finisher was a devastating over-the-shoulder punch that knocked him flat. Not sure how viable fists would be in a boss fight, but that moment was pure awesomesauce.

    The greatsword riposte and the caestus riposte with hornet ring are my favorite animations, the great sword is just so brutal, that final blow to the face as your enemy has already been pumelled makes me smile every time I see it big grin

    One of the things I really hope to see in the next souls installment is some reworking of barehanded fighting to make it a bit more viable an option. Maybe upgrading for both power and moveset or something? Sort of like mirroring training.

    Barehanded and dual handed mechanics should be improved in the next games. At the moment, we are just simply one handed each weapon on each hand. Also, why does the main hand have to be the right? It would be great if they allowed us to choose which would be our main hand. As a lefty, it's quite troublesome for me.

    Being a lefty as well, I'd have to agree. In fact, wielding a weapon in the left hand is generally more effective (if you're left handed of course).

    the fist riposte with the hornet ring is pretty silly. you do two brutal strikes that deal little damage. and then your character does something that looks like he/shes tickling their nose, then blood comes out.

    AND ILL NEVER TIRE OF IT!

    They should add a bit of damage, make the attack insanely fast and of course add more fist weapons. It would be cool if when fist fighting also kicks would do damage.

    Man, I would love to see more options for unarmed and fist attacks. It seems pretty limited right now, but what I've tried has been fun.

    I'm sure most people remember the awesome dual wielding in Demon's Souls. I have a dex toon with dual katanas that brings a smile to my face every time I play with it. I was never as good as some people, but it's still a great build.
