DS3 pvp invading was frustrating, but also fun, because the times that you manage to kill the guy with 4 summoned phantom helpers is very rewarding. i can't imagine doing the fight club or arena stuff MLG style, though

I enjoyed ds2/3 but I think Bloodborne proves they shouldn't really ever do direct sequels and just make more new stuff all the time

Bloodborne is my favourite souls game. I haven't played DeS so maybe it will surprise me.

DeS is great. things are rough around the edges, but exploring boletaria is awesome, and the end boss (well, penultimate) is one of my favorite fights in the series. i wish i'd played it when it was new, though, because with years of experience with the format i steamrolled the bosses.

I really liked having a hubworld with numbered levels. Demon's Souls is basically a twisted Mega Man game

My fave invader was a man in township whose name was a small picture of siegmeyer who just held a big party where everyone danced around and occasionally he would drop an item called PENIS that never showed up in my inventory

I hate in these games when you use the duel areas and it's always some guy with a parry weapon or a buckler and a +10 katana

PVP is the most fun when you do something weird and creative like use chameleon in a really obvious spot and parry the person when they strong attack or pretend to be an enemy or knock them off ledges, etc

One of the things I liked doing in dark souls 2 was helping someone through the wharf by pointing out secrets and then when they tried going through the boss door, I would backstab and kill them.

dark souls 3 invasions were godawful because the host had so many advantages. The only fun I ever had invading was when I put on that ring that makes you invisible from a distance and shot a gank squad with dragonslayer arrows for 10 minutes.

The advantages the host had made the victory all the sweeter.

This part I agree with, but I like the matchmaking system as it is. I felt like I had more control over what pool of players I'd be matching with, even if it took me a playthrough or two to get a good idea of what level ranges were for the areas

i really wish they'd perfected the rat covenant in 3, and made you like a dungeon master type character who sets traps and unleashes monsters

sick, thanks dude. should be here within a few days.

i got the 60% off on DS3 PC (played it on PS4 previously). considered getting the season pass, but to be honest i'll wait until that's even cheaper during a sale.

The southern half of Florida basically hasn't had internet for over a week now. I wanted to play this but remembered I also had dragons dogema installed and I barely remember my PS3 strider play through so I've been binging that. Playing as a mage is broken as gently caress
