    Oh Jesus Christ smouldering lake is a nightmare for a pure pyromancer build. My attacks now feel like I'm sl 1.

    I am enjoying it but it's pretty pony Vs sekiro. Just the inputs are so bloody delayed Vs sekiro. When I press a button in sekiro the character does it. In Ds there is a pretty big delay in the character doing what you have inputted. Currently in the snowy city and its a chore and it mostly feels like it's the input. BB and sekiro definitely upped the series when it came to the gameplay.

    I think irithyll area and dungeon is the shittest ever dark souls section. Every playthrough I get zero enjoyment.

    Love irithyl, can't stand the dungeon. Those iron having dudes are so cheap. I always just skip through that place. Probably the worst area in the game.

    Feels like a nod to DeS but fuck that. It's awful.

    Both are just stacked with mobs. Every few metres there is a group of enemies tightly packed in small areas. The camera is generally shit in small areas and it's just a pain to move around the levels and explore when there's thirty enemies between bonfires. The dungeon isn't anywhere near as bad to be fair. Up top though, my god that is shit.

    Yeah, I really didnít like the city area. Did a lot of sniping to take out mobs from distance.

    The mobs I really hated most though were in the Cathedral. Senior priests or something. They had big maces. For some reason I had real bother with them.

    I dunno, I've just platimumed 3 and gone back to 2, which is so cheap with mob enemies.

    Was planning on getting the plat for 2 but fuck it. It's really not worth the arse ache

    I loved Irithyll. It feels impenetrable at first, but as you slowly explore and open it up you get a real sense of mastery of the city.

    That opening vista gives me goosebumps, probably one of the best in the game.

    Irithyll and the dungeon are great, sure the branders are annoying but they are scary at least and really make you rush when you don't want to forcing some tense combat.

    Pontiff is a fantastic boss too.

    Worst area in the game for me is farron keep. Slow trudge in poison and jumping enemy grab attacks... Still better than the awful ds2 poison shooting doll area and lava bit and awful blighttown immitation and ...

    Farron Keep isnít brilliant design-wise, but I still remember it fondly. It was somewhere around that part of the game that I Ďgotí Dark Souls. I bounced off DS1 several times without it getting its hooks in me, but DS3 drew me in properly until I finished it. Which led to me going back to DS1, eventually.

    Last night I nearly lost it and was close to snapping my copy of ds3. Yolm? the giant, fucking easy boss. I doubt it's ever taken me more than two attempts. Last night it took at least an hour ffs! I got to a point I was getting so angry I was genuinely close to breaking the game so I wouldn't be tempted to play again :). At first I couldn't remember how to activate the wind attack, so that was the first three or so deaths. Then I kept having it not activate even when charged, turns out I think it was when I was out of stamina from rolling fifty times to avoid instant deaths.

    When I eventually did it I worked out I was being a noob for another reason, with the giant sword equipped I was doing fat rolls as I hadn't removed my other weapons!! FFS. Over an hour of pure rage for full noob reasons.

    That fucking boss run is so shit as well, go down a loooooong ladder then cross a narrow bridge with a giant gargoyle and a mage throwing fire balls at you. Of course as well during the hour I had the boss down to one hit many times and got greedy.

    See, it's just easier if you just fling yourself into a chasm.

    Pontiff done in maybe five or six goes. Felt awful though, the delay again for your character doing what you want, so a simple roll and health isn't that simple. Plus pontiff can fuck right off with his 400m 4 or 5 hit combos with 20m reach. Cock. I really should just start summoning so I don't get so angry.

    Weird how later areas upper lotheric and archive's and dragon peak are so so much easier than the piece of shit irithyll. Also weird how the giant took me an hour+ and I managed Aldrich and dancer first go. Looking forward to this run being over :), get me some BB action.

    Why play it if you obviously hate it? I'm really confused.

    I dont hate it. Just the last two gaming sessions have been through the shit part of the game. As soon as I got to the dancer I was, mostly, happy again.

    Well done with Aldrich. I had so many attempts on him. I think when I eventually beat him, I had a summon who died on me and I had to finish him off alone. (Same thing happened much later with the Nameless King).

    Nah. A few years ago maybe. Can't be bothered now. If I'm not enjoying it it gets binned!!!

    I remembered roughly his attacks from 3 or 4 years ago and that the one to avoid was the arrows that would one hit kill. Apart from that being a pyromancer was so much easier than my previous runs as a sword and shield type where you had to get close in. Only right at the end did I actually have to get stuck in to finish it off.

    Yeah so long as you avoid the arrows he's not bad. Are you doing the DLC?

    @wuntyate quitter! Iím still grinding through Resident Evil 6 at the moment

    Itís absolutely rubbish but in a lot of ways Iím enjoying it. I can only stomach between 15 and 30 minutes a day though so itís taking ages

    As Iíve explained on itís own thread I absolutely detested The Evil Within, probably because I refused to play to itís rules and died often. I still completed it twice though with the second run a ďrevengeĒ play through
