    It had to happen sometime.

    Post by SlakeMoth on Sun May 27, 2012 5:44 am

    I'm just not enjoying Dark Souls anymore. I think the reason is that I've hit the proverbial 'brick wall' with both my characters. Perhaps I'm trying too hard. I've been playing 'Skyrim' for a bit of light relief. Also it's nice to drop in on relatives, even if I have to kill 'em.

    You only have 2 characters? Well that's your problem

    Side note, I can't stand Skyrim after DkS. The combat is so hollow and unfullfilling

    Take a break, create new characters. I'd still try to play once a week or so to prevent rust, but i tend to find that extended periods of time on any 1 thing wear me out, and I've got to play sparingly for a month or 2 to enjoy it again.

    @billy, if you use the chaos pike everywhere its a small wonder. I'd be bored poking everyone to death too.

    Yeah, tore me appart too. nothing I could do about you just dodging out of my range and poking from the distance. knives, crossbow, wog, nothing. I'd have twoped you if i'd had it on me.

    oh I'd have been vicious and wog bsd you with my dmb iaito. I was really frustrated. As is usually the case against good spear users, between lag, the range, the speed, and the dwgr you're all damn near impossible to do anything about without twop or a spear.

    I'm excited for the FC video that will be released in a few weeks. It will feature a rusty Billy being killed while you flail your shield wildly missing pairies!

    Point is you can't quit DkS

    wel try what I do
    make specific toon for the covenants you're going to roll with
    Then every time you play you have to adapt to a different style
    7 down one 3 to go

    Oh and I have dragons dogma on the side

    That's a pretty good strategy actually but I might well just take a break for a while anyway. After all I've played hardly anything else since October 7th 2011.

    As for all you Skyrim haters. O.K. you don't like the game, fair enough but 'different strokes for different folks'. Quite why you think it is incumbent on you to sneer at someone else's game choice is beyond me, so quit.

    Slake, take a break I think is the best thing. I have done so for over 2 months, and finally I am ready to return as two of my friends want me to play with them, and I'm gonna get in on the covenant action too big grin

    If you're shaky on a break, play it less, but do different things to what you've done so far, low level guy, pure caster, some kind of challenge run (scavenger I think looks good).

    I think just cutting down the DkS time will let you do other things and also reinvigorate your desire to play it after a while
