Dark Souls Remastered

Postby DaHeckIzDat » January 11th, 2018, 10:14 am

I know you're all probably tired of hearing me rave about Dark Souls lately, but I can't help it! FromSoftware just announced that they will be releasing a remastered version of the first Dark Souls on PS4, XBone, and Switch on May 25th. And I am just fine with that!

I know that it is a remaster of an older game, but this is the game that makes my purchase of a Switch 100% justified (goodbye, buyer's remorse). It's in my top ten favorite games of the past ten years, and having it on the go has been something that I have wanted since I first bought a Vita! Such an amazing game! Now, if they could somehow find a way to port DS2 and (very unlikely) DS3 to Switch, I can die a happy man!

Your constant raving of this series is peaking my interest :D

Is Bloodborne a good place to start ? Or should I wait for the remaster ?

Also, they announced SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, and The World Ends with You: Final Remix talk about impresive announcments along with Dark Souls Remastered making this proof that 3rd party is back to Nintendo!

I wouldn't recommend starting with Bloodborne. It takes the concept of a Souls game, but then takes away your shield so that you're forced to play aggressively. I recommend starting with Dark Souls so that you have options. Defensive or offensive.

I'll stick to the ps4. I've found I prefer that controller even to the ps3's

He had just peaked my interest with the other post as well, and along comes a Switch version right on cue. I think that's where I finally bite. The big screen for the art direction everyone raves about, and the small screen for grinding and playing "one last try" before bed. Sounds like a game made for the Switch.

Count me as another who's interest is piqued by all this Dark Souls talk. I don't think I'll have the patience or pain-tolerance for it, but I do plan to give it a shot. I have the 360 version ready to go, whenever I find a good weekend day to try it out.
