Ds 2 is the best one because you can spend fifteen hours just fighting those big armor guys in one of the first areas and then decide that you 'pretty much get it' and never play another from game again

If you got the three twinkling titanite from Firelink already, the next is four from cathedrals of the deep and the pathway to it.

i only got the 1 titanite in firelink, unless you're confusing twinkling and scales. I know there's a lizard in the crucifix ion shortcut and at the bottom of the cathedral, but if I could get +3 before the catacombs that would be sick

You can trade for a couple with the crows with common items, don't remember which ones.

If you go the cathedral before doing the catacombs, you can definitely have enough from killing crystal lizards to be +3 before catacombs.

I think they didnt intend to let you get boss weapons so early like how its halfway through the game depending on route in ds2 but it's like, the third boss counting gundyr in ds3. At least that's the only way scale positions make sense to me.

Yeah even a +2 boss weapon kills everything in one hit, if I could get even stronger rn it would make these early bosses a complete joke. But hell you can kill gargs in 2 hits with a zweihander so it's all part of the charm

the cathedral is one of my fave souls levels...such a cool atmosphere and design, and so many secrets I didn't even know existed until subsequent playthroughs

I think Brume Tower was based on scrapped plans for the fifth Demons's Souls headstone, so there you go

The level is in the game files and you can watch people play through it on youtube. I don't remember which section of ds2 dlc was based on it but the structure/geometry are exactly the same

the gating of materials in DS3 is weird and I don't like it. I guess it comes out of it being a more linear game in general but it feels very artificial that you just can't find certain materials until after very strict progression points

3 has the best combat of all the Souls games but it's probably my least favorite. I like that they remade the Latria dungeon from Demon's Souls though

i don't because if i got that far it means i've wasted at least 10 hours playing dark souls 3 when i couldhave been playing buttery smooth 20 fps emulated demons souls on my 8000 dollar dual sli 2080 rig

Doing a new round of Dark Souls 3 without shields and messing with all the weapon arts is fun. Sekiro kinda breaks the earlier games' difficulty since everything is so slow. Iudex Gundyr gave me so much trouble the first time but he's a total pushover now.

Shields are nice, but not if they engender passivity.

one of my favorite DS3 times was hanging out in CW with a +4 Lucerne and some variety of parry shield and just PVPing constantly for like 30 hours before moving on

Iím pleasantly surprised that you can meet Gael in the chapel next to the Cathedral of the Deep after beating the game with another character. Now I can take a crack at AoA with SL 20.

it's pretty cool and makes you rethink how much you know about available items, just like most randomizer I suppose. But the first half of DS1 is rly open especially if you choose master key so you can cover a lot of ground before you start really needing a specific key. there's a hosed up looking mod that I kinda wanna try that's like the REmake door randomizer where every fog gate warps you to another random fog gate exit and there's level scaling implemented to try and let you play the entire game in a scrambled order. But I don't know if my brain can handle it
