Been so close so many times to killing the Prince dude and his little Prince brother on his back today. I will manage it eventually. One of the times I nearly did it I only needed to get three more hits in and if I'd have had one more estus flask I'd have probably done it. Honestly though, I had gotten really lucky on that attempt as his little bro had barely done any magic and they'd also barely teleported at all.

Started into this. It's more enjoyable than the second one so far. The game has started to branch out a bit, I just killed the Crystal Sage and made it to the Cathedral of the Deep. Also opened up Farron swamp or whatever the strawberry float it's called.

That was one of my favourites. Sometimes the bosses are just so hard I instantly give up and get co-op partners, but they were the optimum difficulty where I felt like a badass because it was so hard, but never felt like quitting.

Havent managed to beat Lorian or his cunty brother. I sold my PS4, got another one a few weeks back and didn't realise all my save data went with my last console. :|

My character was so overpowered i thought id walk it, but I still got strawberry floating smashed. Walked through nearly all of the bosses before that.

Fabian Delph is a banana split.

Recently got back into this after previously getting stuck on the Abyss Watchers. I started a new save and am doing much better now that I'm blocking more and not trying to play like Bloodborne and dodge all the time. Up to the last Lord of Cinder now (the giant as I missed him previously) and from my quick go it seems he will be relatively easy.

I think I prefer the faster pace of Bloodborne overall but still a great game. Although like Bloodborne I have no clue what's going on with the story, and I can't parry for gooseberry fool :lol:

Oh I finished this by the way. I've been really tempted all month to start a new game plus but I already have a long list of unplayed games that I need to crack on with.

If you do do the ringed city, look up "how to beat the angels" and "how to beat the archers" before you start. It will save you a mountain of headaches and mean you can actually enjoy the DLC instead of slogging through the cheapest, shittiest section of a souls game to date

I was playing this last night, made it to the bog level. Saw one of those Dark Knight dudes from the New Londo Ruins in DS1

He raped me. I died. Embarrassing.

Is the ringed city a DLC area? Because I'm not bothering with the DS3 DLC. I found I didn't really enjoy the DLC much in the first 2 DS games and by the time I got to them, I'd be ready to finish the game off so I never really had the drive to see them through. So I just think it'd be a waste of my dollar to get the DLC for 3. The base game is more than enough for my needs.

Ringed city is the DLC yeah. Ashes of Ariandel is the other DLC. Theyre both worth playing but both have issues. AoA is too short but has one of the best souls bosses ever, Ringed city is long, mostly good, has the single toughest souls boss ive ever played, but also has 2 incredibly shitty sections. Well worth it if you can get them cheap

Perhaps if they're all on Steam for a fiver one day I'll bite. Really tempted to start NG+ tonight but will likely end up just playing Vampire Bloodlines.

How cheap has the DLC been on PSN?

Currently the base game is £15.99 and I think the game plus DLC is £24.99, with the season pass being £11.99 on its own.

Problem is, I still has all of DS2 to play, so if the whole lot will eventually drop to £15 (that's how much DS2 cost me) I'll hold off. But if this is the cheapest it's likely to go, I'll buy it now and have it on the backlog ready.

Beat those Deacons of the Deep. And now I'm at some ice castle. High Lord Wolnir was a bit crap, camera was totally gooseberry fool.

As an aside, this game has some crazy religious stuff going on in it. I can't figure out what it all means.

Blazing through this, pretty much done nothing today but play it. It's really good, much better than 2, might even be better than DS1 in a few areas. The Pontiff guy was a great fight :wub:

Was a bit 'eh' on Yhorm, not sure that fight did anything for me. Especially because it took me a while to figure out how to use the sword you get. I never use those abilities, and I rarely two hand a weapon (I always play as Knight class in these games).

Yhorm was great from the moment you pick up the sword until you do the second swing, then you realise the boss is just nothing.

Assuming you played Demon's Souls, otherwise it's just a nothing boss.

The Yhorm boss fight is all about the culmination of Siegmeyers quest. You even get an extended cutscene with Siegbro if you do Yhorm after finishing his quest
