Today Cas streamed his rusty souls moves a bit earlier than most get to play it. When you do get your hands on the game, let’s discuss how everyone likes it!

I loved this game with utter passion.
After playing it again in this arguably not so much better skin, I strongly feel like I will keep my memories intact rather compromising them with retrograde frustration.

I doubt this “remaster” was a good idea even for players who never played it because it feels utterly clumsy and slow after dks2, Bb and especially dks3.

Many years have past, FROM has been skillfully improving their formula. I am looking forward to their next evolution, not dwelling in the past

Move forward

Feels like the old Dark Souls. Slow, steady, punishing. Looks better, runs smoother.

I like it.

Yeah it took a bit to remember where they were, same with parries.

I can see PvP being a gank-fest just like 3. Oh but now, you've got gravelords messing with you and no seeds of a giant tree to even the odds.

I like it.

I started right at 6 pm. Started with a pyro, which is how I rolled on the original. I think. That was way back in 2012. Sluggish, clunky. Graphics only slightly better than original and I’m playing on a Pro. What exactly did they remaster? Just to make it their final iteration of all invaders, all the time?

No tree seeds? Then f*ck them, they didn’t make this unmasterful remaster for me to enjoy.

I tried all of the builds. Sunlight Warrior was the easiest. I made it to boss door without dying and with 9 flasks left. But every summoning failed. Tried many times. One almost made it, then failed.

DS1 was my least favorite, because I loved Demon’s Souls and the “spiritual successor” was a let down. I wanted to give it another chance if it was a really good and fun remaster. I might completely pass on this.

God of War, so much better.

As curious as I am about DSRemastered, I can't help thinking I might be better off just spending an extra 20 bucks on the new GoW, which does look awesome.

I joined quite late, first two fights were real, real bad.

But from the third got the hang of it again, stacking up humanity at the speed of light just like the old times.

classes werent balanced out too much it seemed, 99% of the people i fought were naked or almost naked blackknights (yes, me too)

Im not sure yet what the value will be for me after all this years. But i think ill give it a chance.

I'm pretty happy with where the visuals are. It was interesting to learn what pvp tech is still there and what isn't. Though I will admit i'm not happy that gravelords were not changed. Still need NG+ to actually infect people with black phantoms. Also not happy that the DS3 healing changes made it in. For once I was hoping some leaks were wrong. But Considering the pvp tech in the game still it might not be as bad. Either way i'm probably not getting it on launch.

It's worth the 40$ price tag imo. But i'm not exactly craving a souls title at the moment. Playing too many other things. MHW has kind of filled that void for me for the time being anyway.
