DARK ******* SOULS BITCH

Sometimes referred to as "Watertempleitis"
#62 to #50 - nightmarecorpse (04/05/2013) [-]
I dunno why, but I never found the water temple difficult. The only part that bothered me was having to pause and put the boots on/off, and taking a little longer to figure out the water levels. but i don't know why everyone says it was hard.
User avatar #104 to #62 - theodordronen (04/05/2013) [-]
Maybe because I played it as a 7 year old, without being able to check the internet when I got stuck. That **** was horrendous. It's easier nowadays :)
User avatar #114 to #62 - studbeefpile (04/05/2013) [-]
Yeah bro, I imagine you beat it after watching a walkthrough, or LP, or something. That **** is ************************ hard as ************** when you're 11 and just have to figure that **** out like a man.
User avatar #131 to #114 - roflsaucer (04/05/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure it was infamous not for being hard, but the fact that you could trigger a bug making you unable to progress or something.
User avatar #245 to #131 - studbeefpile (04/05/2013) [-]
False, I've played through Ocarina of Time (watertemple included) many, many times, and I've never encountered a bug with it.
User avatar #246 to #245 - roflsaucer (04/05/2013) [-]
Me neither, but that's what I remember hearing. I never experienced difficulty with it, or a bug.
User avatar #115 to #114 - nightmarecorpse (04/05/2013) [-]
I played the game when I was a kid around the exact same time everyone else did, without internet. Maybe I just got lucky?
User avatar #118 to #115 - studbeefpile (04/05/2013) [-]

But hey, maybe you did.

Other than Dark Link it never bothered me either. Didn't need the guide online except for that asshole and it still didn't help.

Logically it is not difficult. It is just long and meticulous.

I don't think dark souls is hard enough for my tastes
User avatar #23 to #21 - lillpip (04/04/2013) [-]
Needs more SL1 Calamity ring playthroughs.

not even that could suit my tastes

Go conquer England.
User avatar #28 to #26 - doctadeathbench (04/04/2013) [-]
I don't even need a standing army to conquer England I would tell you how but it would be over the character limit

Go set up a 5 star restaurant on the moon.
User avatar #31 to #30 - doctadeathbench (04/04/2013) [-]
I would have to wait until large scale space travel is viable (likely in a few decades, ferry the pieces I need to set up the restaurant to the moon, done
User avatar #32 to #31 - lillpip (04/04/2013) [-]
**** waiting, that would be too easy.
User avatar #35 to #32 - doctadeathbench (04/04/2013) [-]
well I could always kick start it, people turn into complete chumps for kickstarters
User avatar #36 to #35 - lillpip (04/04/2013) [-]
Letting other people do all the work for you would take all the difficulty out of space travel though.
User avatar #29 to #28 - doctadeathbench (04/04/2013) [-]
here's a hint, money is power
#33 to #23 - Rascal (04/04/2013) [-]
Speaking of absurd challenges for Dark Souls, what about playing SL1 with only starting equipment, and no upgrades.
I don't think that's mathematically possible thanks to the Four Kings and their unblockable attacks.
User avatar #34 to #33 - lillpip (04/04/2013) [-]
Unblockable =/= Undodgable :)

That would be totally nearly ******* impossible though.

I was behind a wall and they were on the other side. Grenades were being thrown at the wall non stop. Then a grenade spawned in front of me. spawned. There was no one on that side of the wall.

I read this...
May I just say: HA!

WaW was tough. Because it was made by Treyarch who have no idea what a difficulty curve is.
But, you know it was toned down.
<<<<< This bastard.
Made by Treyarch before they realised they actually wanted people to play on veteran.

I did WaW on Veteran straight in a few days. This bastard broke me.
On WaW you could enter a room and get to cover on red health, then recover and slog your way through.

CoD 3 on a battle scene with loads of people to shoot at and lots of stuff going on. You walk round a corner and everyone is aiming at you and already shooting. I suggest you buy it/rent it out, slog Veteran, then go back to WaW and see how hard it really is.

Excuse me for sounding douchey, but CoD 3 really is damned hard on Veteran. I don't think I've ever experienced max difficulty like it.

True, I have played it. That also made me want to cry.

But I had it on PC, so I wasn't as good. That's why I couldn't slog it to the end. I gave up. Those dogs man!

I think they're actually quite easy.
I don't know if it's them dumbing it down, or me getting better.
It sucks if they've dumbed it down, though. Nothing seems like a challenge anymore, just time consuming and inconvinient.

oh and ps wow requires no skill whats so ever like i never want u to compare dark souls pvp and wow pvp again wow pvp is a sad excuse for pvp ... really only good for pve but still no skill

like fking god i cant believe u just compared these two...
User avatar #222 to #63 - arstya (04/05/2013) [-]
Difficulty and gameplay aside, why are you comparing the two? They're different genres.

the guy saying pve is harder than pvp is lecturing me about games. i won't reply after this
User avatar #69 to #67 - gcloud (04/05/2013) [-]
u just did and no im not saying its harder im saying that wow in general doesnt require skill and 100% relys on how much u farm for ur equips. iv played both games and there both fun but i quit wow cuz it didnt require any skill. while dark souls pve can get really easy after awhile but its pvp is always fresh and fun since it always random

oh god for a second there i thot that a washing pole with great magic weapon on it... i almost shat my self at ur roll

Not even hard until you get to certain bosses or wonder off into a high level area.
#45 to #44 - hellboundstrength (04/05/2013) [-]
while that is true consider the fact that dark souls is not only difficult but LONG (especially if you do everything) PLUS new game+ where enemies do much more damage
User avatar #86 to #45 - kentravyon (04/05/2013) [-]
My first play through of dark souls
- This isn't so bad,
- oh that's a badass knight down those stairs
- RIP

- **** I SWUNG 0.0005 seconds to early
- combo hit 6 times by 2 rats
- RIP

- Alright boss behind this fog
- **** I see boss and 2 dogs helping him
-RIP 0.5 seconds after

- ha this is where I killed that boss before
- falls through floor
-looses 50% hp from fall
-boss hits me
- RIP

you get the picture
the thing about darksouls is on your first run, the enemies themselves aren't bad, but its your ignorance that kills you, ONCE you know them, it punishes you for ignorance, but with time you will know
"enemy behind this corner" trap ahead etc... but with time and a ******* of deaths you get the hang of it

so the game ups the difficulty to a point where one wrong move = a parry and ripost that one hit kills you, and that's JUST THE PVE PvP is a whole different story
User avatar #219 to #86 - arstya (04/05/2013) [-]
That Stray Demon pissed me off. Only thing I knew about coming back was Snuggly and the Rusted Ring from the wiki.

And Jesus Christ, the pvp...I literally FEAR PvP. Especially in a nightmare like Sen's Funhouse, or Blighttown. I hate Blighttown...
User avatar #224 to #219 - kentravyon (04/05/2013) [-]
I'm decent at the PvP now, but sometimes connection just won't let me enjoy it

me and another guy having a stare off then suddenly i'm getting back-stabbed when hes right in front of me? Annoying as hell

I just rush em with a chaos zweihander most of the time, not many people can survive much of it if you scale its damage with 10 humanity, time your hits well and your set
#228 to #224 - arstya (04/05/2013) [-]
I never understood the face-stab 			********		...and no, PVP buffs, I'm not talking about parrying.   
   
My technique is a barrage of sorceries, and my lightning spear. While they're dodging the spells I'm stabby stabbing away. Works better if I have my Lifehunt Scythe or Quellag sword.   
   
Stepping out of my comfort zone now though. Playing a Sorcerer/Pyro using Velka's rapier until I get the Butterfly Horn made. Or maybe I should make the shield with the butterfly and keep with the rapier...idk. First time I've stuck with a sorcerer.

Why is everyone saying how hard FPS's are on their hardest difficulty? You haven't even began to ******* live until you've tried Ninja Gaiden Black on Master Ninja difficulty. Needless to say, crucifying my testicles with my hands tied to the back of my head is only half as difficult as Master Ninja difficulty.
