You can have a story that you still piece together, but at the same time doesn't feel random to a newcomer. Like Demon's Souls or Dragon's Dogma.

I like obscurity, secrets, freedom of interpretation, and rewarding curiosity. But I think DS managed to do it just as well without making me feel like a random undead, going through random locations, killing (mostly) random enemies.

Just got out of the Tomb of Giants and farmed some slimes to upgrade my Claymore to Divine +5. Time to kick some ass. Is it okay to go to Blighttown without that ring that allows for normal movement in the water?

Yeah, this ring is not of vital importance.

It feels more like a world and less like a collection of mostly-unrelated levels.
collection of 5 interconnected worlds more like. do agree that dark souls feels less "gamey" (hate that word but w/e) though.

btw it's funny how the geography of lordran is completely surreal but feels very "natural" when you're playing the game.

They are interconnected but when playing the game, even when you see the interconnection, they don't FEEL interconnected. When I'm playing 5-1 or 5-2, it doesn't feel connected to 4-1 or 1-3. When I'm trudging through Parish, it definitely feels connected to Burg, Lower Burg, Garden, and Shrine.

And yeah the geography makes NO fucking sense but it's neat. There are also a few spots where you can actually see more level geometry in the distance (Lost Izalith from Tomb of Giants or the swamp from top of Blighttown) and I think that's really cool.

i heard that if you die in darkroot garden (in the right place ofc) you can see your bloodstain from the bridge that leads to sen's fortress (or was it the platform in front of the church i don't remember). anyway that's pretty cool.

they should have directly connected anor londo to sen's fortress imo, but i guess being the game's mount olympus and all it'd make sense that it would be secluded from the rest of the world lol.

Happy to say I beat Priscilla Princess Tinyfeet.  She was being very bullshit the first times I fought her, in my defense.  Fighting her this time she never went invisible again, but every time previous she would cloak any chance she got.  So now I can wear my new stupid fucking armor and be a big piece of shit.

Beat the majority of everything before Sen's Fortress as a SL5 sorceror.
Feels good man

It also makes me realize that the "Average SL" of anything before Anor Londo is probably anywhere from base level to SL40, geez.  Facepalm

Also it's quite nice how beatable the Catacombs are, even without a divine weapon.  You just have to look around for clever shortcuts and those usually lead you right behind unsuspecting necromancers.  Grin


This should help with networking too

You do know that Patches becomes a shopkeeper, right? In fact, you're supposed to fall in the hole, and he doesn't do anything after that anyway. (And he gives you two humanities when you bargain with him)

Oddly enough, he just started attacking me.  I just went up to talk to him and he quickly went from surprise to anger after I returned from my hole adventure.  It's because I told him I was a cleric.  Now I guess I can't get Sweet Mask of Hella Child.

I sort of assumed Patches is the reason all the other clerics died (the ones who went down there with Rhea) so it makes sense... Tongue

Why would you tell him 'yes' when how he asks you "Are you a cleric or something?" has the same tone of voice as "Are you a child molester or something?" or "Are you a baby-killer or something?"  Cheesy

It's never a bad idea to say yes to someone.  You like miracles?  You say yes, you get to learn miracles.  You like spells?  Say yes, get magic.  You like Pyromancy?  Fuck yeah bro, let's light shit up.  There's a pattern where saying yes to people was granting me endless sweet loot.

And that's what they call "circumventing expectations." Smiley

I so wish I could just be watching you play sometimes. I wouldn't change a thing, either.

Well yes, except those guys are literally HEY YOU WANT COOL STUFF Y/N?
Actually, laurentius gets pissed if you say yes, because he's asking if you find pyromancy offensive.

The only time it's really stupid is with Alvina, where its rather unclear what you're Y/Ning too.
