i just killed bort of the voreal valley and am having a good time with dark souls 3 so far

it's weird though because the enemies are really aggressive bloodborne style but there's no rally so i constantly feel like i'm chugging estus when i shouldn't have to

learning the shield break on the longsword attack for knocking apart the lothric knights was a game changer though

It's always weird when people talk about rallying being really important in bloodborne because I always felt like it was a trap. Whenever I tried to be aggressive to take advantage of it I'd just get whalloped by the enemy I was trying to hit

i mean you don't want to be using it to eat attacks that would knock you down or take off half your health bar or anything but it means you can aggressively trade blows with enemies and not be worn down by attrition

Rallying would probably work too well combined with shields since any minor chip damage taken could be healed. You would just aim for the shield with the highest stability and use it to block everything. Doesn't matter if you take a bit of damage since it can just be healed off whatever dealt it.

it's a fair point but the last soulsborne game i played was bloodborne and so it's taken me a bit to readjust to not having rally and having shields be useful and having parries suck poo poo

i died to logarius the requisite couple of times of any dark souls boss to learn his moveset but i never had a huge problem with him, and he became my go to boss for farming souls as a co-op phantom because people were always looking for help with him

the real trick is when he starts to power up halfway through the fight to get in his grill and backstab him/beat the poo poo out of him to cancel it out, artorias style

i almost beat route b of nier:automata but the trash snake before the final boss that lagged like hell in route a loving murdered the game this time and it almost froze my entire computer

i hate posting about how loving bad this port is because if it weren't for how often i have to worry about it freezing i'd honestly have no issues with the game itself. but the port. holy poo poo. prey ran better than this and didn't make me have to worry about my computer dying

i'm happy to complain about a lot of things about nier but the only problem with the quality of the pc port i had was the mouse controls in the 2d sections were all screwy, did you happen to get the little graphics fix tool? i didn't even fire the game up until i had that installed so it might cure what ails you

It was my most disappointing game last year which is a shame because I was really hyped for it.

In fact the two games I was most hyped for (Ruiner and wolf 2) ended up being my biggest disappointments. Never have expectations

there's a lot of things about it i feel like are evidence that the team either had a much bigger vision for what they wanted the game to be but just didn't have enough manpower to achieve it, or hint at the project not having a cohesive and planned direction so they had to scrape the bunch of disparate ideas together and call it a game, but the margin of this post is too small for my essay to fit
