Kinda leaning towards 3 since it also has a few of the greatsword spells, but the consumables in 2 seems alright and adding in some pyro also seems more viable

I think you are confused my friend. If you want to get invaded, you have to be embered. You can use a dried finger too and that will let you keep getting invaded, usually there is a timer if you get killed by an invader and re-ember before you can be invaded again. It's probably like 10 minutes or so. Dried finger removes this problem

ZeroReborn

It's definitely viable in 2 and IIRC doable in 3 as long as you have a non-magic weapon for bosses like Crystal Sage or just use Hidden Body to bypass a lot of shit.

absorption is below 20
get fucking killed in like 2 hits
Going from 0% to 20 is going to shave off less than a fifth from each attack given that flat defenses have at least a nonzero impact. It won't increase the amount of hits it takes to kill you by more than one at most unless you're already taking five of them already, and that's assuming you're coming up from 0%. If you're at least at around 10% absorption (master's set already has 6), hitting 20 won't be increasing the amount of hits it takes to kill you by more than one unless you were already able to take 10 of them.

You can add 10% HP with around six to eight levels of vigor while a 10% increase in absorption is probably going to take at least twice as much vitality investment if you were at least already wearing rags. It isn't really worth the investment until you've put your vigor up into the forties or something.

No it doesn't, stop spewing nonsense. You're the only one here who expected a graphical upgrade based on literally nothing. Everyone else here knew it's going to be a 1080p/60fps remaster with some changes to online. A port is simply a platform conversion with little or no changes, while DaS1R is going to run at 60fps without breaking the game like with DSfix.

Stop making your stupid strawman, no one except you expected "updated graphics", read our fucking OP you idiot. Also stop trying to change the meaning of a remaster to fit your argument, REmake was also remastered and all they did was port it to modern hardware and up the resolution/framerate.

StrangeWizard
StrangeWizard

I'm not him and I expected them to update the graphics. I don't particularly care one way or the other, but one would assume that if they're going through the trouble of doing a remaster of a game that's less than 7 years old, they'd put more effort into making it look pretty than simply upscaling the textures.

Lord_Tryzalot
Lord_Tryzalot

REmake wasn't the official name, they called it "Resident Evil HD Remaster" because guess what, they added new texture work and graphics to improve it's looks.
And if you'd browsed these threads at all lately or even glanced at /v/ you'd know a lot of people were expecting a graphical update.
Not to mention, improving just resolution is not what people think when "improved graphics" is said, you are just defending this because you are a blind fankid.

DS3 is the first souls game I've played, but I've gotta wonder; were DeS,DaS and DS2 the same way? I feel like FromSoft could learn a thing or two from metroidvania games in this regard. DS3 seems like it plays lip service to the idea of sequence breaking, but you can barely change the order of anything. I'm sure they made this decision in part because of the way character progression works, but then again, that's what's causing my problem in the first place.

Maybe I just hate progression systems based on numerical power creep, but I feel like every game that has one, ends up being worse because of it.

TreeEater
TreeEater

blind fankid
coming from someone who literally expected something without direct confirmation
Wew lad.
REmake wasn't the official name
Learn to read, I said that REmake was remastered, never implying that they called the remaster REmake.
They added new texture work
No they didn't, what the fuck are you talking about? Emulate the original game in Dolphin and then play the HD Remaster, they didn't add any new textures, they simply increased the resolution/did some lighting work.
I'm a regular in dsg/bbg and I also go on /v/ daily. There's always a few idiots who overthink and expect MASSIVE changes, even going on to say that the game will run on DaS3 engine. Most people ignore those posts because most people know how to manage their expectations. If by a lot of people you mean 1-2 anons per thread then yeah, you're right. Overall, every souls veteran knew that all they're getting was 1080p/60fps with better online. It's newfriends like you who thought that From was going to bother actually reworking the graphics.

Again, being let down by your own expectations doesn't mean it isn't a remaster. A remaster compared to a port is supposed to enhance the experience and while increasing the graphical fidelity of the game would be nice, it's not mandatory to call the game a remaster as long as there are considerable changes made to the game. Running the game in native 1080p/60fps with 6 player online is a considerable change to the core experience, especially for console players.
Also, they're not "going through the trouble", that's the point. They simply want to make more money while doing minimal work.

Wow what do we call that one user, a rework of the graphics and other minor things...
That's called a "remaster"
If they had done no graphical changes besides getting it working on new consoles+higher res, that means a port.

You contradict yourself with every sentence, so graphical changes with better textures and lightning is a remaster like in resident evil, but when they do no changes at all dark souls is still a remaster?

still thinking that increasing the resolution somehow isn't improved graphics
They're giving the people just as they advertised, it's your fault for looking too much into it and expecting a miracle from fucking fromsoft. Learn how advertising works. Notice how I never tried to justify it but instead made fun of you for your expectations that inevitably lead to you being disappointed while I managed my expectations accordingly?

The pre-rendered backgrounds in REmake were not redone, simply upscaled. I used REmake as an example because it's a good example of a good remaster. I never said that DaS1R is going to be a good remaster, I think it's going to be DaS1 with integrated DSfix but it's nevertheless a remaster because calling it a port when they're rereleasing it on PC is fucking retarded, not to mention changes to the framerate (including consoles) and online. If you weren't mentally disabled you'd understand why advertising it as a port would be pretty confusing for people who already have THE FUCKING PC PORT OF DARK SOULS 1 ON PC.

It's misleading to call them textures because REmake uses pre-rendered backgrounds that were upscaled. They did do some work on 3D models and lighting though.

Agree on the aspect ratio. Not sure on the shaders. The vaseline filter would look horrible on HDTVs.
REmaster isn't shit, considering you can actually play the game on modern hardware with high framerates (above 60 slightly fucks with the AI though).

What I posted:
Notice how I never tried to justify it but instead made fun of you for your expectations that inevitably lead to you being disappointed while I managed my expectations accordingly?
Also, it isn't false advertising, which is all that matters. If it misled you, don't buy the fucking game you mong.

All right boys and girls, I finally finished the porting job, every slider entry that was in the original sheet is now in the new one, plus a separate page for NPC sliders.

The only thing "left" is the seven Imgur albums of sliders by people who didn't get their submissions added because they weren't added to the waitlists. I could add only the ones there that aren't ugly, which would save me a bit of time, and also various other sliders that I've saved from previous threads (and maybe some of my own as well). Beyond that, I don't know if anyone would care enough to want extra entries for separate pupil colors and tattoo slider values, but I could add those as well.

Let me know what you guys think should happen, and once everything's settled I'll replace the link in the OP.

What hole? The one where one is shooting fireballs at you as you try to run in to open the door to the Fire Longsword? You can't go in that way, you have to find a key from later in the game or do a stupid retarded plunging attack that you're not supposed to be able to do.

Don't listen to You can make the jump into the hole, but you shouldn't instead go back to Cardinal and slide down the ladder. If you plunging attack one of the lizards, it will play an animation (just like Asylum Demon) and you'll take no fall damage.

Man, you did a great job explaining what I've been saying to numerous people : the people who feel shocked / duped can't claim they didn't have information about what the features of the remaster were because they announced the increased phantom limit and resolution / framerate changes a long time ago but people continued to clutch into a belief that ''i-it's gonna get changed, Lost Izalith is gonna get f-fixed'' and when people are okay with what the remaster is going to be rather than their unrealistic expectations, they're gonna call you a ''Fromdrone''.

DS3 feels the most linear yes, but you can't skip required bosses in most of the games. In DS1 you still have to kill all Lord Soul bosses before you can access the endgame, in DS2 same thing unless you somehow accumulate 1M x your NG level SM , Bloodborne has a lot of it's content optional but the main story is still locked into a linear progression though the optional content helps ease that feeling and Demon's Souls LITERALLY HAS NO OPTIONAL BOSSES.

Archives is locked
Yeah but it's the last actual level of the game. Funny how people who rag on about that don't complain that Aldia's Keep, Giant Lord and Throne of Want are inaccessible in DS2 until you progress in the game.

Well that's the way Veeky Forums and especially /v/ is. If you've been here when a new Souls game gets announced, people are jerking themselves off into the hype and setting themselves up for a disappointment later.

People also don't realize that they can just uhh, not buy the Remaster if they feel like it's not worth the money. If they can run the original in 60fps 4k with graphics mods that look better than the Remaster who wants to bet that graphics mods in the remaster are going to get flagged as ''cheats''? and think that it isn't worth it, then that's cool, nobody HAS to buy it. It's going to be a good purchase for me because I don't play Souls on the pc and for a lot of people as well.

DS3 feels the most linear
No, it IS the most linear game. Are you trying to pretend the map layouts don't exist?
you have to kill bosses in all the games
What does that have to do with whether or not a game is linear?
DaS gives you master key and is open, DS2 gives you a 5 way branching path (though 2 connect at lost Bastille), and DeS the most linear (and oldest) of the group lets you pick zones.

The benefit is for a player to rush build items and desired boss fights swiftly, and for each playthrough to have the option to be slightly different.

hurr dur why can't I skip collecting the ashen mist heart and just enter giant memories at the start of the game
because it would be an under-leveled AIDS no hit run to clear and it would story break. Which is fine because the NON-LINEAR map layout offers SEVERAL PATHS that can be easily cleared by a LOW SL, whereas DS3 is the exact reverse.

There's fucking nothing in the Archives that much harder for a low SL to clear than all those late game bosses and gangs of Black/Lothric/Cathedral knights so the reason "not intended for lower SL" is gone. There's nothing story critical inside that it requires 3 of the Lord Souls to be dead so the reason "it would break the story" is gone. Just saying "we can't give the key because it's the last level" makes no fucking sense.

I'm a big fan of your Desert Sorceress material, especially the one where Rosabeth is dressed in the Desert Sorc outfit and reveals her nips. I understand that you're likely not taking requests but just throwing it out there that Sirris' Sunless Realms are very, very underrepresented in fan art. Who knows, maybe without the player's help she would get mercilessly ravaged by Creighton...

Either way, thanks for a little ''tribute'' I guess :>. I get that I might come off a bit odd but overall I'm harmless and understand the line between kinky fantasies and real life. So yeah, hope you'll have a great time here on Veeky Forums also I would recommend /aco/ and /v/ drawthreads if you're interested in finding ideas for future draws and / or getting your blog more out there not yhat your art doesn't already speak for itself

SOME areas in Crux Woods and Farron Keep. That's literally it.

you're punished for exploring it
...Welcome to Souls games I guess?
I think it's best for people like you that Demon's Souls won't ever get a Remaster because you'd hate Valley of Defilement. In DeS if you try to roll at the deep swamp you won't even fatroll, you stagger and then the giant bog trolls come to rape you.

Getting laid isn't hard as long as you put yourself out there. Be comfortable with yourself and give it a go, ask that cutie out for dinner and a movie, see how it works out.

I think you're that south american dude but if you actually are in a small town where everyone your age is married, make trips into larger towns and go into a nightclub every now and then. Get some good clothes, take a shower and you're good to go. You won't succeed on the first, second or maybe even the 10th try. But if you keep trying you will succeed.

But it's up to you, I'm not going to force you or anything. All I'm saying is that I got through my dry spell after I got back in the saddle by not letting past mistakes haunt me too much.

You're trying to hit multiple offensive stats while ignoring your survival stats. And if you're using a Murakumo and Claymore then you need more than just 20 Endurance.

Then just level all the way up to SL200 or 300, it won't matter worth a shit. The only reason that builds exist is for PvP.

No, Im from Poland and living in capital city. Its just normal here that girls above 20 are expected to marry as soon as possible. I recall few situations where 24-25 years old ones which just finished their studies would be called "spinsters" by their families.

The fact that society also expect "good husband" to work 10-12h per day to earn as much money as possible doesnt help either.

Not the incestposting user, but getting laid is extremely easy, if you're attractive. I'm about the same as most of you autists on Veeky Forums, if not even worse personality wise, but I'm attractive so as long as I keep my mouth relatively shut and don't go on a rant about self-cleaning fleshlights, I get to have sex with a lot of attractive girls. I couldn't imagine my life if I wasn't a good looking "chad", because I'm about as sociopathic as they come. I'm also pretty good at social situations, but again, everything I say is carried by my looks so I can get away with making absolutely retarded jokes and saying some abhorrent shit.

If you're not good looking, then first see what you can fix. Lose weight, lift some weights, clean up your skin, get a haircut, dress nice etc. Remember, there are always girls who are in the same situation as you, but then again, they are not going to look anything like the pornstars you fap to, but then again, neither do you.

Oh also to that user who doesn't know what to do: treat girls exactly how you would treat your friends, no special treatment. Seriously, don't put pussy on a pedestal. Girls abuse that shit so fucking hard and you'll never get to fuck them. Instead, treat them like a normal human being, don't even give a hint that you want to fuck them at first. Don't overthink this shit, the more you do the more you fuck it up.

My slavbro, you gotta hit the gym and be a strong nationalist man. A lot of men from Eastern Europe are bald and don't even look that great, but they look physically strong and confident and that's important for a lot of girls in that region.

You only get her armor after she's dead, either by your hand or when she offs herself after Homoprinces. The only reasons to fully complete her quest are (1) you actually summon her for Dragonslayer Armour and Homoprinces, or (2) you want to see her corpse lying around outside of Firelink.

Oh. Thats a problem because I dont know how to treat friends either. I was pretty much alone in that regard for most of my life, only having one or two people I was talking with at schools and simply got used to it so I cant really imagine myself going out somewhere at evening instead of staying at home, reading or playing video games. But at the same time I do have need for contact but said need is so easily fulfiled that I would appear as distant to everyone else and actively check when and what to do in order to not make others feel bad because of my distance.

Maybe I should make a thread on /adv/ instead.

I'm about the same as you, I don't really have a lot of friends, only a few really close ones. I regularly shut myself out and disappear, sometimes for weeks because I simply get tired of socializing and want to be alone. Like I said before, I can't really give any good advice when it comes to socializing because I'm pretty sure most of it is carried by my looks. Then again, I don't talk too much and I'm usually considered the cool, mysterious guy that doesn't say much, which helps because girls get curious and then do most of the talking themselves. Most people I've seen on /adv/ are good looking normies, so I don't know if they can give you advice that's applicable to you, but good luck my man.

Hi, /dsg/. I'm trying to emulate Demon's Souls on my crappy system and I'm getting 20something frames with some sound artifacts. I can deal with it, as long as it doesn't break the gameplay. So I have questions, because I'm new to Souls games.
1) Do you need sound cues to fight effectively (respond to e.g. and enemy's scream with a dodge) or is it just animations?
2) Do you need smooth fps for quick reactions or is it all relatively slow and methodical?
I did some testing on the first boss (the one you're supposed to lose to, but I'm hellbent on beating the fucker anyway) and it seems playable if the above doesn't fuck me over at some point later in the game.

AwesomeTucker

Sirris is just so shittily written.
It's like they tried to tie the relationship of Darkmoons, Moundmakers, and Fingers into one character.
They should have either made Hodrick a Finger of Rosaria or made her have a vendetta against purples instead of reds.

CodeBuns
CodeBuns

Sound cues become important in the later games, especially if you want to try to be a parry king. You're probably fine not needing them in DeS since it's the first game.

DeS is arguably the slowest out of the five games, to the point where they balanced it around expecting your character to fat-roll and use their shield to block. So smooth FPS isn't entirely necessary outside of fighting certain bosses.

Sharpcharm

And dodging but that 135 points of stamina is well enough for that. Blocking isnt as viable as it used to be in first game.

So I ask - what to do with those 20 points then?

I'm autistically compelled to play every series from start in release order.

Okay then, I kindly ask you guys to show me how exactly should pve paladin-girl build look like at SL100.

Harmless_Venom
Harmless_Venom

With larger weapons one more swing is a lot. If you don't have enough stamina to keep a full stunlock ready you're basically halving your damage. You should be able to perform a twohanded stunlock, dodge, and then perform one more. With something like the astora greatsword you need 140 stamina to do that. The full weaponart coincidentally takes 139 if you don't have FP. To compare, with something like ledos you need 161 for stunlock roll stunlock (which is 34 end with favor +3, or you can get 160 with 40 bare endurance).

For the kumo you've actually got enough stamina for those things if you're wearing favor +3, but curved swords are odd examples because
A)they have good running attacks for ultras, so you'll be running more
B)they have jump attack combos (unless this got patched while I wasn't paying attention)

I would say you have "enough," but just barely

vig
well it's a hell of a lot better at keeping you alive than vitality is until you're at around 40

optimal
I would say you're using this word wrong, but I think you aren't even applying a definition at all. Hp per SL? By that metric, 23 vig is actually the most efficient, giving you 38.2 Hp/SL, 1.2 more than 27 vig, but people go up to 27 anyways.

unkindler.github.io/caps/

Look at the trajectory of that curve. If it didn't flatten out from 28 onward, it'd hit the X axis at probably around 33 vigor or so. The flattening is actually beneficial, it's not really a softcap.

If you're looking for a Str-Fai build, then you need more Endurance and more Vigor, and ditch the Dex. If you're not going to hit 40 Str then 27 for two-handing will suffice, then hit 40 for Faith.

That being said, the one thing I'm salty about with DaS3's character creator is that there's no option for body tattoos (or multiple tattoos for that matter). Why give us all these cool-looking tribal designs and dragon motifs if we can't put them on the bicep or thigh or wherever else?

But you're not frequently invading those players. The ones you're most likely to invade are

You've been exclusively invading in a starter zone where PChain + a half-decent build basically makes you a god. Go up in levels and invasions get progressively tougher.

Rubber band your left stick towards the back of your controller so you never stop moving backwards. Don't follow invaders, ever. Even if you're shit and even if you're solo, you can beat much better players that way.

In order of importance when it comes to winning fights:
being passive >> lag > being skilled > having a good build

It's a difference of literally 10 AR, and again, it depends on what the other guy's stats are. Flat defense against Lightning is governed by Endurance, so against literally any melee build Gold Pine Bundle isn't as good. You can factor in all the armor absorption values you want, but at the end of the day damage is damage.

Standing poise was a terrible mechanic. Tying it to the size of your weapon and whether or not you were actually swinging the weapon actually forces people to think about their actions.

The lack of standing poise worked for BB because of it's focus on speed but DS3 not having actual poise makes heavy armors obsolete and it's retarded that High Wall hollows stagger a guy in full Havel's.

Heavy armor provides poise, it has its purpose in the game.

Because you weren't swinging your weapon. Why should you get away with not actively playing the game and relying on a crutch mechanic from the previous games to carry you?

Miyazaki can only make good games when he has people looking over his shoulder and backbone support from Japan Studio.

hey that's me

started with cleric class, using spiked mace/morning star for that spanish inquisition flair. Also, the 13 luck isn't wasted when I use bleed weapons. Kinda.

i'm at 30 faith but going to pump as much as I can, using lightning infusion on all my weapons. 16 strength and 13 dex for spiked mace, with knight's ring I can 1-hand it but I usually 2H it. For bosses I tend to switch to the morning star because fucking spiked mace is so goddamn slow.

My current spells are Deep Protection and Magical Barrier. I want to be as tanky as possible like a true paladin so I'll be leveling vitality until I can wear lothric knight armor and a cute little Maiden hood. Right now my fashion is Knight armor and ragged mask.

But yea, pure faith seems to work. Not sure why you would want a faith/strength build for PvE. Buffs aren't that great for pvE

DS3 has patches. You cannot defend this.
I mean at this point I know that you ds2fags are so far gone that there's no reasoning with you.

You forgot
Majestic Greatsword
Elite Knight set
Sunbro covenant

Also, is it *really* a reference when DS3 is a direct sequel set in the same lands?

Corpses of Mushroom Children and Mushroom Parents
The entire fucking Smouldering Lake zone
Literally everything after Pontiff Sulyvahn

Because DS3 is a direct sequel and takes place in the same areas as DS1 did, just in the future. DS2 did take place in a different geographical location.

Also it's funny that you don't make ANY mention about DS2 references in DS3. Could it be because you like sucking DS2's dick that you don't complain when DS3 throws references to DS2 but cry a river when it pays homage to the games that started the series?

Miyazaki is a hack
Lmao, eat it DS2kid. I wouldn't have such a negative opinion of DS2 if it weren't for the people who fellate it every fucking day in this general but here were are, stuck with a bunch of autistic contrarians who worship the shittiest game in the franchise and pretent that the director whose influence and vision made the series is what it is today is a "hack" because DS2, the game that's really not even a Souls game, wasn't made by him.

40 fth for crescent axe because it's stylish as fuck and if you don't use it on fth you suck benises

yeah, but for pure faith I feel like you might as well just go 50 fth and poisecast sunlight spears, and hope the opponent is retarded enough to get caught by your super fucking slow casting speed because nodex faec

And you have to hit an invisible wall to access Untended Graves. And you have to use a gesture on a carpet in a shortcut to get to Archdragon Peak. Dark Souls is fucking stupid sometimes.

yeah I'm talking about DaS
just slap on full havel's and abuse standing poise to get your sunlight spears out because those things are slow as shit so good luck hitting anything with them outside melee
and unless things somehow changed dex does affect casting speed in DaS

it would also complement the warcry nicely

Summons and invasions send undead to or draw undead from other "worlds"
But sometimes those undead show up as flesh and blood in the player's world rather than as phantoms
But they and the player can kill the same boss at different times, as shown with the Anri/Horace quest line
Does anyone mind explaining to a brainlet how this multi-world stuff works? Are all undead adventurers generally operating on their own personal timelines within the same cycle but with the occasional points of convergence?

Same reason you'd get good at anything else, to get an edge over people who can't do it. You just have to decide if that small edge is worth the amount of work and practice required. It wasn't for me.

So assume that me and my roommates are shitters that like to do the entire game with each other summoned, what are some fun meme builds that we could try to make things less easy?

Eg., would making a purely defensive build with nothing but vig, end and enough STR to use greatshields paired with a guy exclusively using bows be fun?

You could try greatshields and lances/halberds. Have some front liners defending and dudes behind them using thrust/overhead attacks through them.

Yeah that sounds fun, my mates and I have memed similarly. Just make sure your build isn't so retarded that it can't handle any parts you can't summon for

So I know I'm pretty late to the game, and that for some reason DS3 is generally disliked, but how's the halberd? She's been my weaponfu for the last two games but I heard she's been ruined

Also do the blues get any hits lately? Or should I just ignore the covenant, I'd imagine this late in the game it's dead

Guts, Casca and Griffith then? Or 3 lothric kniggas. Can you cosplay the trio from des in ds3? You could also cosplay the trio from 1 (lautrec+sealer+that warrior) or the 3 "main" characters (oscar+lautrec+solaire)
What was the trio in 2?
webm for bakas, 960x540 dimensions. there's an option in the second tab to input what size you want your file to be, the program will adjust the bitrte accordingly. Also tick enable high quality encoding or whatever it's called

The way of the blue summoning algorithm goes through the list of online blues and picks the first one eligible. The list seems to be ordered on something like SteamID, and if you end up being placed low on it, you're not going to be summoned unless there's literally no eligible blues above you.

Basically some blues get very frequent summons, some will rarely get summoned, and some will never get it, and there's no real way to change this other than making a new account, or trying to find a level bracket that will hopefully have less other blues.

Reds can just use the eye orb and don't have to deal with this nonsense.
