Lobos plays Dark Souls with a SNES controller, fun watch this even though it essentially boils down to a no camera control challenge run.

That's pretty cool. It's not quite up there with voice commands or a Guitar.
I need to think of a fun run to do, nobody's gonna care when I do my Onebro Laughing

Could you do a run where you only use punches to attack with and control your character with the Power Glove please.

I've always really fancied doing a caestus run in a souls game, used them a fair bit for parrying in the DaS III dlc.

Just played the first hour or so of Dark Souls III: The Ringed City. From the first bonfire to the second essentially.

After being slightly underwhelmed by the game, then severely disappointed by the first DLC, this has been pleasantly surprising. Letting me actually get stuck in and explore the most interesting skybox of the main game, this is a much more interesting exploration of the whole "convergence of worlds" thing which the game basically just used as an excuse not to have a cohesive gameworld. It's also getting properly stuck into interesting unexplored avenues of the lore, rather than pointlessly revisiting an idea from the original Dark Souls. I'm actually excited to get stuck into this!

One thing, though: I was confused initially why holding my shield up wasn't automatically locking onto enemies. Too much Zelda for me!

I've now played Dark Souls on an Xbox, a Playstation, a PC and a Nintendo! Hopefully I can finish it here rather than getting 2/3rds and encountering a game-breaking glitch like on PS3.

It also only just ocurred to me now, years after the fact, that I could have tried swapping my disk.

Tomorrow my PS5 will be here and I have Demon's Souls which I have played on PS3, where I even imported the game.

But as you may have gathered I didn't git gud (from videos of people playing on PS5 got further than I thought on PS3) and never really have with Souls-likes either, that any tips to get me started such as class or anything else.

Personally was thinking Royalty class as you have a spell and can have that range without worrying about ammo.

I also don't know how quickly I'll get to Demon's as I want to give it a fair crack and not jump from Miles to Demons to Dirt and back.

I've never played DeS but from what I do know the Royalty class is the best starting point if you want a magic build.

Well no Andy as my PS5 doesn't seem to work correctly that I won't be playing anytime soon to stream it.

Thanks, Jas will go for Royalty whenever I do play DS.

I've beaten Demon Souls twice now, once with a Royalty build and once with a melee build.

Magic definitely makes the game easier at times, but you will still need to level up your endurance and vitality a decent amount because there will be times that you have to get stuck in. Some special enemies are very magic and fire resistant, so you have no choice but to get stuck in (or poison them).

Also NG+ is brutal for melee builds in this game. My melee character gets one shot despite having high vitality and the best armour by an alarming number of enemies. NG+ increases the health of all enemies by at least double, and their damage by up to 4x. Yikes.

I think the main things to remember for whenever you try it Mas are:

1. Keep your equipment weight at 50% or lower - this will allow you to fast roll, which makes dodging a lot easier. If you find you are taking too much damage, make sure your equipment has the right resistance (fire, magic, etc) for the region you are in, and invest in vitality.

2. If you're stuck on one of the worlds, that's a sign you should go to a different world. You'll often find armour or weapons in one world that's designed to help you out elsewhere. Pay attention to the hints other players leave around the world though, some areas are best approached with blunt weapons, others with piercing ones.

3. Kill yourself in the Nexus.
Spoiler:
 

4. Rings are really useful. Everything stacks in this game, so find a ring that regens mana or hp and it will stack with armour that does the same. The Thief Ring is also super handy. It makes it harder for enemies to detect you, which is so useful in certain stages. It also makes getting backstabs easier as you can catch enemies by surprise.

5. If you do go Royalty, you'll find a really good weapon in the first area of the skeleton world if you're brave enough.

6. If your damage sucks, you might be overdue an upgrade to your weapon. The blacksmith in the Nexus is fine early on, but you'll need to find the better smithy to get the good stuff.

7. Make sure you have enough stats to use the weapon/shield you've equipped. If you don't their effectiveness is nearly useless. That said, you'll still get passive bonuses (e.g. regen) from having them equipped. I played a lot of the game with a shield slung over my back and two-handed my weapon just for the regen the shield gave me.

8. Don't consume the souls you get from slaying bosses! These souls are more useful for learning powerful spells or getting unique weapons from later on.

9. Make sure you've got enough grass. You have to buy or loot healing items in this game and it sucks to run out of it, die to a boss, and know that you have to grind for it.

10. The harder an area is, the easier its boss tends to be. Many bosses have weaknesses that can be exploited to make the fight easier. If an area or boss is too hard, you can always summon a friend to help you out by setting a password via your network settings.

Now you know everything you need to so you better get streaming one day Razz

I should chime into this thread to say that since my last forum visit I've beaten Bloodborne and believe it or not lads, it is, in fact, an utter banger.

Yeah mate - I think it was about two months! I'd have 100% have posted about Bloodborne in here already otherwise. Laughing
