    Minor nitpicks

    Post by strangejoy on Wed Feb 01, 2012 3:40 pm

    I love dark souls, but there are a few little things that annoy the hell out of me. Here's one: the way toons hold their shields is ridiculous. Shields aren't held by your hand and stabilized by your wrist, except for bucklers. If you tried to hold a large shield like a dark souls toon, it would flop all over the place and your wrist would probably break. The shield needs to be stabilized by your forearm/elbow. Nitpick two: why are all of the capes short and pasted to my toon's back? If you don't want to deal with the challenging graphics issues posed by a cape, don't have one at all. Nitpick three: Did that flying wyvern really just fall to its death? Flap your wings, dumbass.

    What little things bug you?

    I get burnt at the AI when it does dumb s in PvE like getting stuck on trees, running aimlessly off cliffs, standing still while I shoot arrows into enemy eyes, or when Hydras fly and blow themselves up with splash damage...

    I particularly hate it when they run off of high surfaces to their death. How many years have these guys been running around blight town, and yet when I show up, they suddenly forget not to jump off a bridge 300 feet above the ground?

    what annoys me... nom1: you can kill nito when in his covenant why... dosent that breake the lore of the game killing the god you pray to.. nom2: the fact the game is sopose to be realistic well... apart from the undead warrior killing demons 10x his/hers size part but you can have a load of heavy weapons/armour in your inventore nom3: how can i put on armour that belonged to an enemy 2-3x my size e.g. dark set or gaints set thers a lot of other things which annoy me but i dont hv time to lise em

    Honestly if you couldn't wear giants or knights armor people would complain about that. Don't complain about what the game lets you do, that's just ridiculous.

    My nitpicks would have to be lack of numbers. I want a medieval 3rd(or1st) hack & slash with hundreds of enemies and allies! None of this stuff where you can count the number of enemies on your fingers sad

    Yarxov, if they did that they'd have to reduce the difficulty of those enemies.. and then would just turn into your regular old hack'n'slash game, really not what FROM intended silly

    my nitpick? I think invasion should be possible everywhere if you're human. no farming and hiding in areas where you farm and done boss have to be susceptible to it.

    Also i reckon bringing back the idea of having less health in hollow/soul form that was in demons would be better too.

    I mean without reducing the enemies strength, and my nitpick applies to every game I've found. There doesn't seem to be one that's an en masse Sword and Arrow battlefield. (Well, I guess there's Mount and Blade)

    imagine a mass of 100 hollow warriors charging at you in a phalanx with bomb throwers behind and crossbow soldiers behind them, good luck taking that down without some serious fire power. would be fun to try though!

    But it would be amazing, especially if you had 49 phantoms with you!

    ....EPIC

    would be fun to play as an army of phantoms against a mix of all foes in the game, bosses included.

    My mind is blown just thinking about it big grin

    Does noone else think that an army of Torch wielding hollows with mosquito and blowdart support would be the worst thing ever?

    Then someone would find a glitch in the terrain mapping that causes them all to fall to their deaths if you shoot Gwyn in the groin at just the right angle.

    I never had a problem with the dart guys, a couple of them actually killed themselves lol!

    My worst enemies are the crystal hollows. :pale: They gang bang me while buffed to break my guard and kill me when they all jump attack at the Same time, every time.

    If you really want to be nitpicky: How in the world can a human being carry 20 different heavy weapons and shields in his or her "secret" backpack all the time? Oh yeah, it's only a fantasy game.

    we're undead, our muscles are dried sinew that have a very high breaking tolerance also part of why undead might be feared and reviled, supenatural strength as well as the whole revival thing.

    Silver knights' spears and titanite demons' catching poles should NOT be able to kill me through a solid, fairly thick concrete wall!!!
