    I love restarting the game as well. I've done it twice now, because I might have failed a questline or missed an invading NPC. Maybe try a new build. It's also fun knowing where the mobs are, and where the cool loot is, etc. Loads of fun.

    I had the strangest luck the last time I started Dark Souls I. New character, picked a thief which automatically starts with the Master Key and picked Black Firebombs. Killed the Asylum Demon with them, got the Demon's Great Hammer. That was a given. After that, the Black Knight in Darkroot Basin dropped his halberd, the one in Undead Burg dropped his BK Sword and the Taurus Demon dropped his axe which is a REALLY rare drop. All this done with ZERO humanity. Now explain that .....

    I get that, but still it was a setup to DS3 for me now. By the way, I just finished the game. Bloody Gwyn had me dying a lot when trying to parry his attacks. Then I decided to get out my ascended pyro glove and it was a breeze really :)

    Couldn't get past +14, darn titanite slab! I must've wasted it on something else and I couldn't get it from the Catalina's.

    Since this is kinda related, I got Salt and Sanctuary. Its uses a TON of Dark Souls mechanics and will feel really familiar. I'm having a great time with it and recommend it highly.

    I read/watched reviews of Salt and Sanctuary and everyone said it's essentially Dark Souls turned into 2.5D.

    On that note, have any PS4 players here tried the demo for Nioh? Easily the most direct, shameless ripoff I've ever played. Team Ninja copied and pasted a DS game onto a mythical Japanese setting.

    Yeah but it looks really good. And more Dark Souls isn't a bad thing!

    I'm really excited for their idea where you can see somebody's bloodstain and fight them, and get a piece of their gear. That is going to be really neat.

    I feel like too many games are trying to be a Souls game, that's my problem. Lords of the Fallen, Nioh, Salt and Santuary, Titan Souls (phucking really?)

    I think its good that the Souls games brought forth a wave of challenging action/adventure games.

    Seems only fair since NG seems to be the OG 'rage quit' action game going back to the Xbox reboot with fighting Alma and just about any other boss.

    I feel like Dark Souls took that mentally and made it more consistent and figured, "why punish them some times when we can punished them ...ALL the time?"

    I found Ninja Gaiden to be just ridiculous. Its way too twitchy for me. The Souls games are more methodical.

    Damn, you beat me to the almighty platinum. How tough was it to accumulate every single ring? That's the one trophy that I'm worried will keep me stuck for a while.

    I don't really have anything to complain about DS3, but does it seem invasions are mostly balanced unevenly in favour of the host? I mean, yesterday I took some hours to invade people, got about 15 matches, out of which only 5 of the hosts were alone. In all other cases it was me against two or three other players/covenant phantoms. How am I ever supposed to win a fight like that?

    Don't say git gud, it's an obvious disadvantage. What are your experiences?

    Most people have phantoms for some reason. Your best shot at fair pvp would be going to the Pontiff bonfire and going right out back. It seems to have developed into the unofficial PVP spot.
