Today I defeated the Four Kings of Dark Souls for the second time. I have to say, it was absolutely pants-wetting, even with Witch Beatrice at my side. Dropping into a pitch-black, featureless void, hearing the "oh shit" chorus music start up and watch this tattered grey spectre come charging out of the darkness at you and knowing that more like him will be on their way...
One of the few things that I thought the sequel did better than Dark Souls were the 'Great Soul' bosses; Nito and Seath are slow and clumsy, and the Bed of Chaos is just terrible in every respect. But I'd say the Four Kings are probably one of the best fights in the game, up there with the Gaping Dragon and Ornstein and Smough.
I agree with you a lot here. I personally disagree with Seath, but that was my own fault for playing an int build that wanted the moonlight greatsword... yeah I died so many times trying to cut that bastards tail.
OT: I've been rereading Worm and catching up with Pact.
For those of you who don't know Worm was a web serial novel that was completed... last year? It's a dark superhero story (I mean dark similar to Powers not Batman. Though I do admit some of the new 52 Batman stuff is messed up) starring a girl with bug controlling superpowers. It gets really complicated and the first arc is only okay but it is sooooooo good.
Pact is a web serial novel written by the same author of worm. For the premise think the Dresden Files but a bit darker and set in Canada. The rest I don't really want to say for spoiler reasons but its really great and it updates 2-3 times a week.
Sorry this became a recommendation thing...
Edit: I also forgot to mention that I'm writing something that will probably never see the light of day. I'm having fun doing it though so I guess that's all that matters.
Edit 2: also also I forgot to mention that if anyone does take me up on my reading suggestions, be warned that Worm will take a lot of time to read as each chapter is pretty long and there are 30 arcs with about 10 chapters per arc. I'm a pretty fast reader and it took me about a month or two. Same goes with Pact, but remember its not finished yet.
