Dark Souls on a portable console?... I don't know how to feel about that. On one hand, I really loved this game and I spent hours trying to clear the entire thing. On the other hand, I really don't want to be sent to the asylum for screeching at the air whenever I die.

I'm curious to see if they're gonna change anything in the gameplay though, like how they bound controllers to the hands in Skyrim.
I'm also curious about how to adapt the game not having a way to pause. Monster Hunter added an automatic pause feature at closing the 3DS. It will be interesting if they do the same.

That's cool for those who want it on the go, but I'm way more interested in playing it at 60fps on the PS4 Pro.

DS1 is one of the worst PC ports I've ever played, let's see how it turns out first. Still haven't bought 3 though, but got Bloodborne from the christmas discount bin for the near future when I'll buy a PS4.

Dark Souls, sure. But I've never seen a whole lot of love for Skyrim around here.

Skyrim got a whole lotta love, like, 8 years ago. After the 500th iteration it does get a bit stale though.

Not excited for portable Souls, or other switch remasters. If it's a game I liked, chances are I've already played it and replayed it to contentment. Still waiting for Bayonetta 2.

I have been enjoying Fire Emblem Warriors on the 3DS though, seems like a very closely produced game with a lot of the elements of the strategy game included. Gets a bit frustrating at times when you can't just relax and slash things and the objectives get in the way, but is great fun regardless. Can always grind if wanting to do something a bit more relaxed.

The only things that's put me off about the Switch other than waiting for games I like is that it's just not quite as portable...and pulling that thing out of my bag to play in public seems a little, I dunno weird at my age (36). The 3DS is bad enough, but the size of the switch is a different matter..

- Super Mario Odyssey free mp update.
while the DLC looks fun i wouldn't exactly call it "multiplayer" DLC since you're not actually playing with others.

No, sadly, I just made a typo. Should've been Tropical Freeze. Ehm, oopsie? Would've been nice if it really was a freebie.

You're right, I misinterpreted that. Mea culpa.

Curses!

(And yes, this was me using a typo for a joke.)

Good. Of all the last gen games getting remasters (because effort is for suckers) Dark Souls is probably the first one that genuinely needs an update. Firstly to remove the clunkiness of the game (in comparison to BB and DS3), and secondly because the original version, while well designed, was optimized by a retarded luddite. And the less said about the PC port, the better.

Not too long ago I was sitting there thinking about how I'd love to play Dark Souls on the PS4, being finally able to take nice screenshots and stuff and boom! I guess it goes to show how little I'm interested in new games these days when I get way more excited for remakes and remasters.

That being said I can't wait to hear stories about people's Switch pads and Joycons ending up through windows and out of trains when they get ganked by Biggie and Smalls, or Capa ***** and his Doggo Squad!

And on the PS4, I wonder if the trophies for acquiring all spells and weapons are going to include the DLC, because man oh man I still have yet to cut Kalameet's tail...

I never cut it either! Was actually a bit relieved Kalameet?s tail weapon wasn?t required for the Knight?s Honor trophy. It would?ve like *cough* felt wrong anyways you know? Such a majestic, one of a kind creature...it wasn?t enough to kill him we had to humiliate him too?!? Nah, keep your beautiful tail, sweet Kalameet. Keep, keep, keep.

If I didn?t have other stuff to play yet, I could easily see picking this up again. A bit too soon though for me regardless, as it hasn?t even been two years. I?m curious to see Blighttown though in full HD at a good framerate. It?s one of my favorite locations in the series. Such a vast, yet cozy place.

Can't have a Nintendo-related thread without a persecution complex, unfortunately.

Anyway -- Sweet, more people get to play Dark Souls. Hope the remaster turns out well.

I wish the US was getting the Collectors Edition that Japan is getting. They are making a box set with ALL 3 games and soundtracks, with included all DLC. It looks amazing!

Chumps! I got seven of them in one save file alone.


I only ever did one run through the DLC. I think it was probably the only weapon I didn?t get, as I remember being a bit miffed afterwards. Too much else to play though, as always.
