Danfer redefines the souls genre itself by giving you a giant humanoid that does a 3 hit combo....slowly! While you circle strafe. Magnificent miyazaki youve done it again

i judge souls bosses by how cool they look + how cool their names are so my favorite bosses in each game are Dancer of the Frigid Valley, Demon of Song, Moonlight Butterfly and The Storm King

if dark souls was a anime i wouldn't be surprised if the ashen one upon meeting the dancer he or she would say shall we dance before fighting her

quote:

you guys think when pontiff turned the dancer into the form she in he intended to give her a large rear end

quote:

Favorite DS boss, loved learning her movements like learning a dance with her. The echoed footsteps still give me goosebumps. Not the most challenging boss, nor the most rewarding. Just a solid fight. Love the battleground, the acoustics, the score. RIP Dancer.

i don't remember hardly anything about 3 and its the one I played the most recently. it just slides out of my brain. maybe because I was good at it by the tbrid game and didn't spend hours and hours dying in the huntsmans copse or whatever.

The black eyes of the Pontiff eventually transformed the Dancer into a beastly creature, her armor fusing with her own absolute dump truck of an rear end.

hard to decide what to like most with dark souls 2, is it the endless string of uninspired levels? the bad mechanics? the boring enemy and boss design? the very brown and grey graphics? none can say, but imo the crowning glory is getting to the top of drangleic and finding two dragonriders instead of an epic boss fight

it’s nerfing the only aggressive boss at launch to make it easier for people to circle strafe behind them

It's the designers spamming the copy & paste tool to make up for nearly every enemy having a filler moveset that wouldn't be any threat by itself

I still think 2 is good even if it's made on an N64.

Going through Lothric castle atm and it's what I thought Drangleic would be, much cooler imo and think I've gotten to the final lord soul maybe. Fog door on what looks like a big bridge. As long as it's Dragon Rider 2: 2 Dragon Riders II I'll be happy lol.

The dragons who are like hell kite wyvern I thought would be painful but found the trick around them pretty quick and I like that they just snooze when you open the gate.

You can't take it with you, you know.


i'm glad that i started w/ bloodborne because i like how it pushes you to be aggressive instead of circle strafing or dodge-rolling or w/e. it takes a minute to get used to because so many video games are about standing far away and dodging projectiles while you learn enemy attack patterns, but once you get it, every hit feels like a goomba stomp. it's one of the few games i can think of where, when you start wrecking things, it doesn't feel like it's because you put points into something, you just got good. it also means the difficulty spikes feel fair. it's hard to get tilted even when you're on your tenth try with something because you're just like "drat. that dude is good."

the epic awe of a boxer perfectly dodging huge punches, but its against nightmare monstrosities, and theres waves of blood splashing everywhere. bloodborne ftw

Wasn’t a lord souls fight, was the designated Ornsteins fight. First round win babyyy

DS2 is not a good game but its insane development means it's full of absolutely weird poo poo on a Mew under the truck level. There's a tree in the first DLC and if you hit it with a whip for some reason it moans and restores all your item durability

yeah there are a lot of cool ideas in 2. estus shards are way better than kindling and i'm glad 3 was smart enough to bring those forward, powerstancing was fun for some builds and ascetics were sick. all the basic aspects of the game blow rear end though

another thing is i think the level geometry in 2 is subtly good and had a lot of variety in how the 3d space navigates. the encounters are boring and bad but the places where they happen could be interesting when they weren’t just monster closets

it has really good NPCs also imo and it also refined the upgrade system and I'm glad 3 kept that too though they still added more pointless infusions than 2 had
