@Mega-Gazz The speed of combat and enemies in DS3 is similar to that of Bloodborne, but I agree with you that there are key differences.

@nessisonett How is Code Vein?

It’s alright - has a plot you can actually follow without piecing together item descriptions, but it is ofc a very anime story. Also its far too easy, most of the bosses I beat on the first try without reading anything ahead of time.

I got £50 Amazon vouchers for Christmas (cheers distant dad) so was wondering whether to put it towards Demon’s Souls or Miles Morales. Honestly neither seem to be very long according to my mates who managed to get a PS5 but I think I’ll probably get Demon’s Souls. Although Royal Mail aren’t delivering until Tuesday so this bloody PS5 better turn up or I’m going to angrily play my PS4 Pro and have fun with it until it arrives.

@nessisonett both are excellent. I put about 40 hours into Spider-Man Miles Morales with 2 playthroughs and currently trying to take down the Flamelurker in Demon's Souls, I've came sooooooooo close twice now but man is he annoyingly quick compared to the other bosses I've picked off so far!

@Draco_V_Ecliptic eBay for a buy-out clause of retail price albeit with a rather steep delivery charge. Somewhat hilarious that delivery was that much when it was posted 2nd class a good couple of weeks ago and still hasn’t arrived! Although that’s more Covid and Royal Mail’s fault.

@nessisonett Haha, I see, glad you've got one on the way though, I hope you thoroughly enjoy Demon's Souls if you get it and please give me a tag when you're playing it! (to let me know what your experience is like).

finally beat the Dragon God, really easy once you know how after many deaths also went for the trophy hitting him a few times with the Hands of God!

@nessisonett Also, have you thought of doing a speedrun of Demon's Souls? I don't know if there is a trophy related to this, but, if it seems somewhat simplistic and easy to you at a superficial glance, perhaps playing it this way would be just what the Doctor ordered?

I picked up the game again last night after a break of a week or so. Made it through 1-3, the start of 1-4, 4-2, 4-3 and 5-2 in pretty much one sitting. 4-2 I'd been struggling with but this time I made it past the boss in one run. It was the initial section along the cliffside which caused me the most trouble. Those damn flying manta rays! It really feels like sometimes everything just clicks in this game and it's possible to make really good progress.

So, now I'm just going to bash my way through 5-3 and then try and figure out 1-4. As a melee build I'm hoping I can just run through the blue dragon but I haven't actually tried that yet. Perhaps the flame resistance ring won't be enough to get me through the flames. I really hope it is though as I can't say I'm excited about the idea of spamming 100s of arrows at it.

@mcdreamer The thief ring is handy for world 4. The manta rays hardly notice you then. And yep you can run past the blue dragon. There is a shortcut you can open up before the second part, just round the corner before the big staircase.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

@JohnnyShoulder I equipped the Thief Ring for the 4-2 boss, should have used it earlier! Good to know for future play throughs. Good to know you can run past the blue dragon too. Will be giving that a good later on.

@Draco_V_Ecliptic I’m not very good at speed runs because I like to take my time with games, especially if they have a photo mode! I prefer games that have a separate speed run for each level, as I’m extremely prone to making mistakes under that sort of pressure.

@nessisonett I see. Have you made your mind up between Miles Morales and Demon's Souls?

@Draco_V_Ecliptic Yeah, I think I’ll get Demon’s Souls because I think Miles Morales will drop in price quicker. Should be good fun!

well the Penetrator has one hell of an entrance and a hell of a reach with that sword of his. also unlocked more of the tower of Latria today, I spent almost an entire day during the holidays just invading other worlds and it's so fun, you never know what your going to be in for!

Well, I’ve done it! In the end Old King Allant took around 5 attempts. I just needed to learn to take my time. Used some pine resin on the final attempt though it didn’t seem to help out too much.

On the whole I think the game is quite a bit easier than Dark Souls 3. It’s the only other Souls game I’ve finished, competing two runs so far. It’s obviously a lot shorter too, but that’s no bad thing.

FF7R now beckons but I’d love to either kick off a NG+ run or start Dark Spuls/Bloodborne. Need a bit of time to decompress first!

@mcdreamer Well, it depends what you're looking for. If you are interested in an experience similar to Demon's Souls, go for Dark Souls Remastered, if you want something more like Dark Souls 3, go for Bloodborne, Bloodborne will obviously take you much longer to complete than Dark Souls, imo.
