  1. Yeah, I've done just that. Got as far as melting the Phalanx. It's a lot quicker to get through when you know where all the enemies are Can you only access this fractured mode mirrored world in NG+? I might stick that on. It costs 25,000 souls, though, apparently.
  2. All done I was going to give NG+ a go as a magic user, but (unless I'm mistaken) there's no way to redistribute your levels, so I guess I'd have to start an entirely new game, or grind so I could put points into INT, so that's a bit of a shame. However, overall, I enjoyed the game a lot. Having never played it on the PS3, mechanically and in terms of the different locations, it very much feels like a precursor to Souls 'proper', even with the graphical update. I think it lacks some of the depth of the later From games, but the structural choice of t
  3. I literally tried to download it on the same PSN account I bought it on when I got it for my PS4 and it wouldn't let me. Oh well. I'll play the shinier version anyway.
  4. I tried to play FFVII:R on my PS5 last month but it wasn't yet backwards compatible. I'm going to wait for the free upgrade anyway, but does anyone know if you can actually play the un-upgraded version of the game on a PS5?
  5. My PS5 has crashed three times playing DeS and yesterday the controller was just suddenly unpaired. I've only had it for a month. The disc drive also suddenly whirrs up quite a lot at random points. Compared with the XSX, it's not been the best hardware experience so far.
  6. Melee only might be difficult, but melee + bow for aggro'ing individuals away from groups is definitely viable. That's how I've been playing. Got to the final boss of Boletaria last night, and what I'm assuming is the final boss of the game, though I could be wrong (that broken portal stone in the Nexus looks pretty suspect). He killed me on my first try, but I did manage to get him down to half health at least. That Soul Sucker move is a complete troll, though. I'll give him another go later.
  7. Today I learnt what 'samsara' means.
  8. Do you actually though? I don't. As has been pointed out, Souls is at its best when it places you in claustrophobic, tightly-constructed levels. The more open areas are often the weakest in the game (motherfucking swamps especially). I want this to be an entirely new IP. Dark Souls is brilliant, but it's done now.
  9. Well, not something entirely different, but I don't just want Dark Souls 4: Open World Souls.
  10. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it doesn't look that impressive to me. Granted, it's some grainy footage of a video with lots of watermarks over it and a baby crying in the background (unless that's the game?), but I can't really see anything there to justify some of hype that has been posted in response to it. It looks...ok, but I'm worried by the fact that the combat looks more or less identical to DeS and DaS 1-3, right down to the weapon animations, as @Marlew highlighted, but also things like Magic Weapon and Homing Soulmass. It could almost be from the same univers
  11. Well it definitely looks like Souls.
  12. VERY happy with Blasphemous. That's been on my wishlist for a while. This sort of fits in with the thread I made the other day, though - by waiting for this to be free the indie devs of that game are not going to see a penny of my money...
  13. The second one only appears after about a minute and a half, or once the first is down to 20%, so your priority should be killing the first as quickly as possible - two-handing your weapons, using your biggest spells, applying pine resin to your sword, etc. Once the first one's down you can kite the second to the central brazier and just bait him into pouncing, after which you can get some attacks in. You can also target and chop off their tails, which prevent them from powering up or doing the poison spit attack, but the powering up animation gives you an opportunity to get some big hits in e
  14. Is this pegged for a XB1/PS4 release as well as current gen? If it is an MS exclusive I'd be surprised if From manage to make it look as good as the PS5 DeS Remake does, especially if it needs to be compatible with the XSS and the XB1.
