OK. I'm level 205 and it's already hard to get summons. So I just beat the game and 100% it. Feeling of emptiness rising. I loved this game, but I wish it would have made 100%ing it harder. Just having to get a few select legendary items that you can get all in one playthrough was lame. I wish it had made you collect all boss items or something. Or grind for shit like all the DS games did.

I don't know what to play now. I want another Souls-like, but I've played them all. I suppose I could finish God of War, although it was kind of lame.

I only have 1 boss left and one achievement left to 100%. I'm on NG+2. I don't want to stop playing, so I went and killed Malenia. It kind of sucks. I'm thinking of purposely not getting the achievement to replay one more time. However, bosses have gotten somewhat harder on NG++. Not hugely, but enough to notice.

I don't know what to play next.

Nioh 2. We can be bromosexuals in coop. It's the natural progression from Elden Ring if you've already played through all the other Soulsborne games.

I've already 100%ed that shit. I loved Nioh. I wish I could play it again......for the first time.

This is everything I've played. Someone give me recs:

There's a lot of lieing cunts in this thread. Straight up liars. Post videos of you taking down these bosses easily like you claim you do and show proof it's you doing it . I don't believe a single one of you faggots and I wont until you retards show proof.
What boss do you want? I'm in Leyndell right now, is Morgott okay?

Is a "lick my balls rusty" post-it enough as proof?
literally anything but this thing, since you said that Morgott is an okay example, I uploaded my footage. As soon as the YouTube editor finishes this apparently endless trimming I'll post it here in all its glory. He was so hard that I failed to dodge every single one of his attacks and still wrecked him in 40 seconds. Honestly, it's painful to watch: I run around panic-rolling and he dies on his own.
Here it is:



The actual fight starts at 2:22. I fail every single dodge, get hit 8 times, and yet the poor old guy still dies in 60 seconds.

I like how you lulled him into a false sense that he actually has a chance to win the fight. Petty, needlessly cruel :5/5:
:bravo:

Seems to me you're gonna have to find a cheap PS4 and play yourself some Bloodborne. It's one of From Software's best. It's amazing from start to finish. It doesn't even feel rushed in the later half like some of their other stuff. It's a must play.

I've never played Demon Souls or Bloodborne. I've waited this long for PC, I can wait longer.

I played Demon Souls for the first time last summer. I used RPCS3 and it was very playable, even on my 5 year old average rig. The only time it stuttered was when I would break objects like barells. Or after 2-3 hours of emulating, but you can just restart the emulator. It's a good game.

You don't say? What is the PS3 emulator of choice? I never emulated that high up due to my shit rig but now I think I can.
https://rpcs3.net/ I remember emulating it 5ish years ago and i never finished the game because it was at 10 to 15 fps. Now it's mostly 60 with a few stutters on the exact same pc I've had since 2014. Very impressive work they've done.
Vimm's Lair has what you need people.

Ok I changed my mind, STR builds are actually good in this but the investment before it gets any good is significant you and simply must colossal weapons and good armor (and thus its actually an STR/END build)

Secondly while some have complained about the lack of care given to the colossal swords, I actually think they've done quite a good job here. By mid game you will probably have access to the zweihander, the guts greatsword and the grafted greatsword. People getting tunnel vision about the scaling or damage miss a trick: the zwei offers a lightweight option for a colossal (huge poise damage and range), allowing you to utilize heavy armor or a shield while keeping the med roll. The zwei also has a crouch poke, that is very fast and VERY long range. Words can't describe how satisfying it is to stunlock rivers of blood katana fags who werent expecting to suddenly get hit.

And the other thing, armor actually seems pretty worthwhile quite unlike DS3. I was laughing at my friend who was screeching at me to stay away from a particular enemy because their grab attacks would knock off half his health bar every time, but in the banished knight set they were doing less than a quarter to me so i just waded in and swang n banged.

The secret to getting the most out of colossal weapons in PVE is lots of jump attack, but in general the stagger potential when you have some investment is so fucking good, I was melting enemies that many players think are hard just because of the staggers.

The lack of poise damage is actually one of the things that bugs me the most about many dex weapons like twinblades and katanas. I hate being able to whale on a knight, have him not flinch and counter with something that's at least as bad or worse than whatever I was dishing out. Better to have something meaty to hit them with and rattle their cages a bit. Besides, it's funny to send someone flying across the room.

That's it, I'm dropping this for good. I realized I'm still in Leyndell and I'm already forcing myself to play. Didn't like the (DS3) mechanics, didn't like the spastic enemies that get samey and repetitive fast, didn't like the vanilla fantasy aesthetics and didn't like this world design.

This is worst than DS3 for me, because for all this game's pros (like legacy dungeons) it has a flaw that's simply game-killer for me: it's quality time ratio is really low. I must be around 60-70 hours in it but the really good time must be less than half that. The game forces you to spend too much time wandering through its boring, flacid open world for it's own good. For all DS3 flaws in the end I found it's corridor levels mode fun than this. Oh, and if DS3 has linear world design, Elden Ring has linear enemy design, because every enemy behave the same and require the same patterns to defeat - enter, attack once or twice, dodge helicopter or delayed attack, repeat. After a time enemies really feel like different skins over the same bot, and this is the worst curse a combat-based game could commit.

Tl;DR: this game is shit. Ghost of Tsushima was better than this, and Tsushima is a Ubiworld game. Enough said.

Darksiders 3 is basically a Souls clone and it's missing from your list. Can't say if it's good or not, haven't played yet.

Not really an indictment; Ubisoft has some of the best game world designers in the world - it's just that they go and shit on that absolutely stunning work with the most boring, banal and uninspired game mechanics, every single time.

I'm curious, how did you all go about NG+? I killed the "tutorial" boss guy then rushed to the swamp and killed the dragon. Then I killed Margit, went back to the swamp and opened the chest in the ruins so I could get to Caelid quick. I'm currently trying to get to Radahn early.
