Our PC videos of Dark Souls III

Our PC videos of Dark Souls III

Usually on Gamersyde, we use the pronoun "we" as much as possible to underline the unity and good camaraderie of the team. Sometimes though, it's hard to force everyone to bear responsibility for someone else's failure. For example, when I am supposed to record some footage of Dark Souls III on PC despite my complete inexperience in the series, it is bound not to end well. That's why there is no way I am going to say "we" when I am the only one to blame for the following videos. It should however be noted that, in my defense, the batteries of my controller died twice against the boss (which killed me twice), and to make things even worse, the game crashed during my last attempt because of some Nvidia problem with the lighting in the game. So yes, I know I am terrible at this, but really, I could never really catch a break. Enjoy the videos anyway!

Second vid. You shouldn't even have been hit by the killing blow Drift. Your head was below where it needed to be for it to connect. Watched a few more times, your whole toon shouldn't have been touched as you were dodging and your whole body was below the killing blow.

Well the series has always been known for its hitbox issues, hasn't it? :)

Yes, and these are the things that make me the angriest about games. Most just ignore this shit and complain about resolution/fps one way or another. Good collision detection and skipping animation/bad animation frames, thus killing the player are way more important to me. I would have been livid if that was me.

Not at you Drift. You can still skip frames whether a game is 60 or 30 fps. I guess it's bad animation. In Bloodborne I had a hunter go for his gun, without the lifting and pointing animation, the bullet came out of the gun while still pointed down, I then appeared on his weapon, again with no animation and he visceraled me. I was offline too.

Same shit, where black Doku would grab you in ninja gaiden without any animation. In my 42 years playing, this shit hasn't changed much.

Like Stacy Dash said...He got hit because he didn't try hard enough. Yelp.

I imagine Dark Siuls 3 is quite tough for people not used to the series. While it still demands the same care and timing of the old games, it has ramped up the speed close to Bloodborne levels. So not only do you have to be aware and precise with your moves, you have to be quite quick as well. Really puts the stamina management in the front room, and rewards players who dont get greedy. I like it a lot so far actually. Gameplay wise, i think this is possibly the best Soulsborne game so far :)

I can totally get behind that this is the hardest Dark Souls game yet though. Because it's like I Wanna Be The Guy at this point. Every new room, there's some troll ass shit that murders you. Opps, this mimic that looks like all the other mimmics just has a totally different moveset now. Opps, even though you searched that hallway extremely well, there was a hole in the roof, that even when you look in to it you can't see that theres anything there, but wait, you walked far enough and now 20 basilisks drop down and curse you! Oh, is this room with 50 enemies in it that drain your HP by just being within a 5 mile radius of them annoying? *troll face miyazaki goes here*

This game just wins, they managed to package and sell i Wanna Be The Guy for 60 dollars. Well played Fromsoft, well played :P
