    Bro you make it sound even a newborn baby could play Dark Souls, all it takes is press triangle at the right moment and you always win everything.

    It's like going against Mike Tyson - very easy. You just have to dodge all his blows and you're invincible.

    I'm replying to someone comparing poise to dodging who's saying that poise removes the need for dodging because it's an equally, if not more, effective defensive option than the latter.

    That's simply not true. For Poise to even enter the defense options equation it requires you to get hit and take damage, which already puts it at a massive disadvantage when compared to dodging in a game where 1) healing is limited, 2) bosses hit hard as fuck

    And people will get hit. It also looks better when you are wearing some armor that makes you look like a mountain not to dance like a ragdoll and stop attacking with your iron skyscraper because some monster gets a hit in with his wooden spoon. Not everything is about the optimal way to do something.

    lol at the ubisoft tower news.

    I suspected this would probably be even more decline after Bloodborne, Dark Souls 3 and Activision's Sekiro. But I didn't think it'd have a quest compass and ubisoft mechanic, and probably a map filling with copy-pasted POIs like every single shovelware open world game.

    rofl

    I'm looking forward to the Codex celebrating this shit game, haha.

    RIP Fromsoft

    Speaking of Tyson, Evander Holyfield will fight Vitor Belfort tomorrow night. It's becoming a trend, these granny fights.

    I can't help but feel a little anti-hype towards Elden Ring, now that I finally played Bloodborne (what a game) and after Sekiro before that, I kinda wish they'd just keep exploring new settings for their horror arpgs.

    This game looks worse with every screenshot. Dark Souls 4.

    Doesn't help that I can see 3 reused animations in the picture as well.

    I'm such a hater that I bought and enjoyed all their Miyazaki games. Elden Ring is the first one that sparks 0 interest. Just looks like Dark Souls 3.5, dull and rehashed.

    I have a hard time picturing someone might enjoy a dodge-based game while complaining about "dodging avoids all damage and makes you invulnerable" but ok.

    I can enjoy it 1-3 times. But Elden Ring is the 5th time they copy paste the combat system. I've played this game already. Repetition wears anyone down.

    It looks pathetic. Grey and foggy, no doubt to hide the low-resolution ugly graphics considering the console-oriented developer and their games, and a desire to create vast open world which will inevitably heavily tax the primary platforms that are the consoles precisely. Just like Dark Souls.

    And obligatory oversized castles in a complete disharmony with immediate surroundings, where one would think giants live there, but masses who appreciate the gigantism and "wow so big!" themes will have their brains melted by just looking at them.

    I hope nobody expects jaw-dropping next-gen graphix or such. This is the Bloodborne engine again, the one that looked dated in DS3 already. No doubt it'll be pimped out but this ain't gonna be some UE5 next-gen photorealistic wizardry. FromSoft was never about them visuals, all of their games looked five years behind the curve when they came out and this will be no different.

    Sekiro maxed out looks fantastic, better than a lot of more advanced technical graphics. The art direction carries it.

    Froms always delivers jaw-dropping graphics and that doesn't need to be the most faithful to real world.

    Artistically, sure. I'm talking about engine tech tho, clearly.
