    Good or Bad?

    Post by einyaki on Sat Jan 28, 2012 8:08 pm

    I have been in a complete hiatus from games for almost 8 months now. To put it simply Dark Souls got me hooked again thanks to my brother-in-law who have been so persistent for me to buy it which he ended up buying for me cause I kept making excuses.

    I just hope it wouldn't interfere with my plans and goals at the moment which is the reason why I stopped playing.

    Long story short, I can't seem to put the controller down ever since I got it. Every time I get some free time I end up in front of my ps3. When I go out like last night, I find myself planning what I am going to do with my character lmao. Tried not to drink too much as well so I'll be able to play when I got home too.

    So what do you guys think? Is this just a "Dark Souls" phase? lol

    Well I've definitely done that, when i dont have anything more like, important to daydream about then yeah literally i used to think about it all the time, first month or so i played it.

    And its the kind of game that grabs you by the balls and doesnt let you go till you've been squeezed of at least 200 hours of your life.

    and in terms of going out and not drinking so you could play, damn straight, dark souls at 3 in the morning for the *** win!

    If I'm not playing Dark Souls in my free time, I'm probably doing something Dark Souls related. I've even dedicated the time when I can't play Dark Souls to a somewhat ambitious project involving... well, Dark Souls.

    I love Dark Souls.

    I'm over 400 hours in now (i've completely lost track) and I still can't get over it. I've had days where I didn't play because of frustration, but besides that I've spent nearly every waking hour I'm not busy on this game.

    Heh over 400hrs into this game no boredome yet, though I know my gf will be extremely happy when I do get tired of playing cause she hates this game. But when I'm at work....like now I tend to think about what I'm gonna do in dark souls when I get home, and I'm usually looking at these forums when I'm bored here at work >.>

    I really liked DeS, but DkS has me at 400+ hours as well, where as DeS had me at maybe 200-300 by the time DkS had come out.

    IMO it's just a superior game, PVP, PVE, anything really.

    if there was poise in demon's souls it would be perfect, *** katana's kicked my ***, i always switched to my mirdan hammer when i saw someone use them. how can you guys say dark is better in pve and pvp, they basically copied and pasted everything from demon's souls which i was i little disappointed with but its more balanced now, specially the poise thing, no more stunlocking.

    Demons souls in a lot of ways was superior. I put over 800 hours into that game. I lived breathed and dreamed Demons Souls. With that said, dark souls is a lot smoother and.... not easier but easier to play. Although you could argue its easier... I really miss the ability to make pure builds like someone said earlier. My dex builds owned. I'm kinda mad about the scaling in Dark Souls.
