Such a fresh slant on the genre. Incredible gameplay / mechanics / balance / learning curve as always.
I never buy titles on day one, but Mrs. Pants bought this for me, and it's amazing.
Anyone else into Soulsborne stuff, or this?

I’ve re-started Dark Souls four times, I’ve never really gotten that far into it. I love the idea of it though.

I've a mate playing it who says it's great, apparently it's very Zelda-like. Playing Souls' games is pretty much his only pastime these days though.

In many ways it's probably the easiest of the Soulsbornes, even though the combat and strategies are deeper than the others. There's even a Ressurect button that you can use when you die.

It's amazing. Maybe start with Bloodborne. It's much easier than Souls and is pretty much exactly the same game. It's probably one of my all time favourite games.

That's the way it gets. I've seen people saying online that Soulsborne games have ruined all other games for them - makes most other games seem just like mindless button mashers that babyfeed you gameplay.

Mindless button mashing has gotten me through decades of video game playing and I’m not about to stop now.

I remember when games were like Dark Souls as a standard, before in-game tutorials and button mashing were a thing*. I think there's room for it all - I sometimes just want to have a semblance of control while things blow up and not necessarily a soul crushing experience.

*Prince of Persia and Top Gun both put Dark Souls into the second division in terms of difficulty and cruel, cruel learning curves.

Right now I’m (supposedly) playing through
Far Cry 5 on PC
Crackdown 3 on xbox
Just Cause 4, red dead redemption 2, various others I’ve forgotten on ps4
And the kid is giving me grief for not making enough progress for him in this season of Fortnite.

I don’t have time or the willpower for any super difficult games right now.

Just Heavy Rain here, perfect pacing for me though I keep forgetting what’s going on as I might go weeks without playing it.

There's nothing worse than a backlog of pleasure. I've banned myself from buying more games as I've a backlog of about 30 rapidly aging titles on Steam.

I have stuff I bought for the PS3 when they were new and still haven’t played. Hello Dead Space...
I tried to start that series recently with Mrs. Pants, but the camera and movement is so jenky by today's standards that we only lasted about 10 minutes.
