The Man Eaters never gave me any problems, but i was a mage and i toxic/poison clouded their ass. In the second playthrough, it was even easier as i had the firestorm spell and good stats. I cast 3 in succession and they both died.

The one boss that did piss me off was the flamelurker, i honestly think the devs were trolling us with that boss. It would sometimes be a joke to kill and at other times it would be retarded hard. I remember the first two playthroughs i killed it as a joke and the third one i was stuck for a whole day with that fight.

To be honest, the bosses are jokes compared to the black phantoms in the game. If anyone went to the effort of platting the game, you'd have to play around with the world tendencies to get them to show up. I believe every world has one. The samurai black phantom, Satsuki in World 4-1, dude that asshole raped me so many times i hated him so thoroughly. Worst part was he spawned at the start of the level so, as soon as you'd enter he'd be waiting to greet you with a katana up your ass. He is the games first AI spawn camper.

Even, the black phantom in world two gave me serious problems, Scirvir.

Yes all in all I still rank Demon's Souls as a better game, it was harder than Dark Souls considerably. But Dark Souls had a better world. They are exceptional games and everyone who thinks otherwise is an idiot.

You know what was the most frustrating part about Dark Souls? Sens Fortress. :mad:

Took me 4 whole days to get past it. It was almost like the Devs were trolling with us the entire time. You had to learn the entire way and all the secret entrances plus at the end there was a huge ass boss. I didnt even know that there was a bonfire in that area and I used the one near the blacksmith. Took me half an hour to get through alive plus had to beat that freakish boss.

Thats because there is a much larger quantity of casual gamers. But DONT deny the quality of the game. Metacritic has already proven that for those who can take it, Dark Souls is an epic game.
C'maan! Thats not a satisfying reply and Who the f*ck cares about metacritic ?

Edited for my own sake, cuz you two sound like a couple of women.

If your brother's mind is so weak that it can be destroyed by just a game then buddy what the heck is he gonna do in real life? This is just a game, real life is gonna 10X worse and with less mercy.

The 1:9 ratio seems accurate, since that is the amount of actual people who can take on anything. The rest will hate it cuz they're just born weak or made weak by the unbelievably retarded GOTY RPGs of today *cough Shitr--err Skyrim cough*.
And you're defending the game like paki "khana badosh" women, Who is defending her luggage while crossing the road rather than herself.

and i believe that the real life ain't worse than this game

who can take on anything
Don't know why but this cracked me up (lmao)

*cough Shitr--err Skyrim cough*.
Now you've came to the main point, whats wrong in it? How you gonna defend your ass against skyrim?

Well then, lvl 30 with an END build was not quite ideal for that boss. Came back as when I hit lvl 40 with many weapon buffs and finally got them. The area in the middle of the bridge was the best place to fight them when both of them showed up. I concentrated solely on one Maneater till he was dead, and sure enuf after a few tries I won.

I actually found the flamelurker to be not that difficult, I find that he is weak to magic. So my supply of Sticky White Stuff came in handy. :p

Satsuki was such an A-hole. Dont give him the sword, he tries to kill you. Give him the sword, he tries to kill you. What a d*ck. And man could he spam that grass, trying to distance fight him never works cuz the bastard goes to full health again. Cast Second Chance and go in up-close, just block and attack when you see your chance.

Yes all in all I still rank Demon's Souls as a better game, it was harder than Dark Souls considerably. But Dark Souls had a better world. They are exceptional games and everyone who thinks otherwise is an idiot.
Meet idiot 1 and idiot 2:

Spoiler: show
Don't try that stupid game ever again. :)
All I wanna say is that THE GAME SUUUCKS MAN,,,whuup it out ,....(n):mental

Hehe.... I think I got pretty lucky with Sen's Fortress. I happened to need some humanity when I came at the front gates, so after killing the two snakes I placed a summon sign and ventured forward. I got summoned right after crossing the bridge with the pendulum axes. Cuz of that summon, I found out most of Sen's Fortress' traps. The floor trap that releases 3 arrows, the boulder that changes direction, the elevator that has spikes. Lol the same guy kept summoning me so I found more traps as we went along. Then when I finally decided to go in by myself, I already knew the traps and kinda breezed through it. xD

[MENTION=869]Roark[/MENTION] lulz actually i was BEYOND lucky with the flamelurker the first time.... i was playing online and i summoned this guy.... turned out he was level 70 or something... he pawned flamelurker alone while i sat at the back clapping at his efforts lulz... in my solo campaign, i had pretty much seen his moves so it was an easier job.... but yea the worst thing about him was even if you stay close he'd burn you.... asshole

Around the Aureole!
and now we really have a discussion as to the quality of this game? disappointed.... idiot people cannot see a LEGENDARY game if it hacks at them with a broadsword and yells "Prepare to DIE" in their face....

for all the pussies out there, i'd recommend barbie makeover.... try it... it's your level

btw the people who are crying over Dark Souls difficulty level, what would they do after playing Demon's Souls? Demon's souls was, in my own opinion, a bit more difficult.... the boss fights in that game were utter nonsense... you had to sit isolating yourself from everything you can throw at the wall, barring the controller ofcourse and it took immense resolve not to break that POS to a gazillion pieces.... Dark Souls was a more complete experience but the boss fights were lame at times.... but both games stand head and shoulders above the piss-poor mainstream "RPGs"

I am the one who doesnt like the game so what, its true because of it my XBOX fried, cauz the game sucks ,
u dont have to say anything over it, wht r u , some bloody girleez who criticize over some shit gamez...
i dont like dt freaking game so what...im not talkin bout ur mothers and sisters that ur calling me idiots or pu**ies and fighting over it..:GALS:. ,this aint some movie going on , this is real life,, and u guys are so buffoons that u dont got some otehr work, so u girlz do the bloody gossips and critizing here...
Dt game is a shit and will remain the same, its not a difficult game its usefull,boring , mindcraking ,foolish,ridiculous,absurd,demonic,maniacal,psycho,ranting,whooping game ...pacman is better than this game..
But its no use talkin to u guys,, ur just a group of whackers and girleez ,dt if said sth to them thell cry like lil babies, whoes lollipop is taken ,,,,
nd be carefull do not call me an idiot again..
get ur own way , dnt pop ur nose in other's matters...




And sorry moderators this was needed....!!!

Alright, that's enough! No more abusive language or personal remarks from anyone!

If Umer Hanif didn't enjoy the game, it is his opinion and he is entitled to it. Let him be.

So i take it, this is locked to 30 FPS + 720p resolution and probably won't have much customization options for graphics on PC.

Wait a sec, so that means we won't be able to take it above 1280x720?? :|
Not only that, I think the game will be running at the internal res of the console versions (1024x720) and will be upscaled to 1280x720. Modders will most likely be able to cross the resolution barrier but breaking the 30FPS cap would be really hard, if possible at all.

It mean you have to use a mod

I hope the modding community does something to remove the resolution barrier, I don't mind the 30fps cap that much but the 720p limit will ruin the game for me.
I've eagerly waited for this game to come on the PC, I hope they don't ruin the experience

You were all warned once.

Bans will commence now without further warnings if you do not stick to the topic.

This is one game you can't play/enjoy @1080p & 60 fps hasan! :p

Well, i understand the fps limit, if it is essential to keep the 'soul' of the combat/gameplay intact etc.
But the res. limit is just weird really =\
