I have managed to get to anor londo but frankly anor londo can fuck off. It's just very boring. Which is a pity as I have enjoyed the game upto that point.

 

It's widely held to be one of the best areas, so if you don't mind elaborating, I for one would be interested to hear what you find boring about it compared to previous areas in the game.

I was playing this quite a lot a few weeks ago on switch, never having really given a go. I have managed to get to anor londo but frankly anor londo can fuck off. It's just very boring. Which is a pity as I have enjoyed the game upto that point.


Wanker archer pushing you off the roof got you down? It gets much better!

Yeah, I always thought Anor Londo was a great area.  The archers are utter twats, of course, but once you get past them once (or twice in my case, as I fell off a ledge before reaching the bonfire) you don't have to face them again.

It's not the archers that bother me it's just so utter boring getting to them. At least to me it is. Maybe I just need to grit my teeth and get that lucky run to the bonfire.

Well, well, well, how the turntables have turn tabled Mr Gwyn...

Finished this off last night. Some thoughts. It gets it's claws into you doesn't it? 

There were a couple of times I thought "fuck this game", and turned it off. The second Asylum Demon, O&S, etc. However after leaving it a day or so I'd go crawling back, for one more go.

It's given a lot of credit for it's story. I found it interesting if a little sparse, however the internet is a great tool to piece together bits here and there. Maybe that's the point.

No map, no problem, it all fits together very well. I did get lost a few times, and due to my limited gaming time I have no qualms about using a youtube vid to point me in the right direction. How I long for the endless days of my youth. Unfortunately, wandering around a map for hours on end trying to find the right direction isn't a great use of my time. Again the internet was a wonderful tool to help out.

 

The atmosphere is amazing. The world is beautiful and bleak, the enemies are well imagined, and generally pretty bad ass.

 

I love how you go from fleeing dragons, getting battered by knights, and burnt to a crisp by gargoyles, to smashing skeleton wheel monsters and knights like they're nothing. 

 

I went from Benny Hilling away from Black Knights, and throwing firebombs at the first Capra Demon (I'm not proud, there's a hole above the mist door, that's what it's for FFS), to literally pancaking Taurus demons, incredible stuff.

 

Sen's fortress, oh how I laughed... It reminds of what Salazar would have achieved with the castle in Resident Evil 4 if he'd been able to study a bit harder. Incredible stuff. A lot of the game reminded me of Resident Evil 4 actually. Mainly the architecture, but also the way it all fits together into one big crazy map of nonsense.

Weird NPCs dotted around talking in Welsh, and other mystic languages... Also, the music on the main menu is totally lifted from Resi.

 

For the most part I agree that "ItZ aLwAyS PlAyUr ErRor If Ur K1lLeD In DaRk SoUls", however, Bed of Chaos was really weird, it would be childish to say unfair, but Christ, that run to it after each failed attempt was an eye roller.

 

Anyway I enjoyed it and am not quite sure what to play next. I've heard a small game called Elden Ring is coming out soon, I wonder if that'll be any good.

I think you mean: each failed attempt was an eye burner
