I agree, the Wheelmonks can fuck off. They're worse than the Wheel Skeletons because at least with the skellies you can see them telegraph their spin-into-you attack. >.>

I prefer them over the Raven Tengus; those bastards are fast as hell, can take up damage like a sponge dish out hits with the force of a truck and they have ranged attacks

Don't touch me!*

Nioh is a game that keeps going off my radar. Yahtzee bringing up Ninja Gaiden reminds me of how I first tried to play Dark Souls when I was told it was hard. I'll consider trying Nioh if I ever get it for free from whatever yearly console subscription I'm a part of.

*That'll only make sense if I still have a Cheetah Avatar....

How about Soulsvania? Or there isn't a good 3D Castlevania game to justify the -vania part.
Soulsborne? Too redundant?
Soulsace? From solace, souls and ace.
Souls Field? I've heard the King's Field series was the closest thing From had to Dark Souls before Demon's Souls had released.

I've got nothing.

If it doesn't feature a disembodied voice you can draw gigs of R34 fanart of, then it isn't a Souls clone.

I thought everyone had settled on "Soulslike". It worked for Rogue.

Yeah, the game is pretty good, mostly on account of the deep combat full of combos and skills which differentiate it from the Soulsborne series. I do rank it lower than that series indeed though, partly because of the irrelevant story (you're wrong, it's not hard to get, there's just nothing to get), and how repetitive the environments and enemies are. That last one being a much more prominent problem that you didn't bring up, you'll fight the same skeleton samurai and red ogres the entire game.

P.S.: That "Elixir Drop Rate Bonus" is completely unnecessary, I never used it and I'm 90% through the game with over 100 elixir sitting unused in my inventory.

That Pornhub analogy was spot on. I could say it hit the spot. A very tightly constructed comparison.

Wait, an Irish samurai? Now that's more like it! Finally the PS4 has at least one more decent exclusive. Which brings its total up to three.
It has more then three IMO, what are the other two you think are "decent"(i'm guessing Bloodborne and Uncharted 4 are the other two).

Insert Fry meme here:

Don't know if serious, or subtle double entendre..

It's not a true Dark Souls clone if you're not constantly dying and respawning.

I'm going for a Quagmire-style "giggedy".

Isn't the genre metroidvania or action rpg?
Yep, just a bog-standard action RPG. The combat is incredible slow and dodge/defense based than in most other examples, but otherwise, they are simply action RPGs.

No I'll be damned if I ever call Uncharted anything but pretty graphics, mediocre gameplay. The two I'm talking about are Bloodborne and The Last Guardian.
Not Bloodborne and Yakuza 0? I'd say that despite being on a shorter development cycle, the Yakuza games are a lot tighter and more fun to have around than The Last PS2 Game Ever Released.
