It’s interesting to look at and be in the community of Dark Souls. Yes there are some trouble makers, but all in all, people want to help each other. I’m a part of the sun covenant, and it’s really cool because it’s more of helping the other person out than fucking them over for your own sake. The color system has definitely become better because now you can tell between the helping people, white or gold markings, and the people who can possibly kill you like the purple signs. In DS2, covenants weren’t that useful or prevalent. I didn’t really like them. The summoning in 2 was also kind of shit compared to 3, but that’s probably because more people are playing 3 than 2 right now.
I’ve been playing with a friend from college with most of the boss fights, although a few I did on my own because we just died too many times and I was pissed and wanted the boss to die…i.e. the Dancer of the Boreal Valley. I also find it slightly easier with bosses alone, except for the bloody Pontiff, but I digress. Dark Souls 3 is a lot of fun, and actually a lot of fun with other people. The lag is a bit weird, especially with being invaded, but other than that, it’s a lot of fun, and the animations for both games are pretty hilarious.
Also, for a mini-rant. The Nameless King is complete bull shit. At least with the Champion Gundyr, you could parry him and actually defeat him with some difficulty, actually the second hardest fight I have had. The Nameless King is hard only because of circumstances out of your control. It’s almost like they took a note out of the DS2 boss book and made the hit box ridiculous, the aoe attacks ridiculous, and it’s a two-part battle. I haven’t even gotten to part two yet. My friend said I should summon some people, but I don’t even see the point when I’ll die in five seconds anyway. Oh, and the only weakness on the wyvern is its head, which is always moving above you and/or breathing fire so you die. It’s complete bull. Everyone says it’s the hardest battle in DS3, which I give credit to, but, it’s a good thing the battle is optional because it’s near impossible. I wouldn’t care if you had a chance, but there is none. It’s the luck of the draw.
Other than that. I am on my last boss, the Soul of Cinder, and I gave the Fire Keeper the eyes, so I’m going to check out that ending and get the achievement. Should be fun.
P.S. I know who The Nameless King is supposed to be, so fuck that. I’ll help my friend if I have to.
