So I just finally beat Dark Souls Remastered on my PS4.
I found this game a bit easier than Bloodborne, at first, but as I went along I found it harder to close out.
In retrospect, Bloodborne seems like a slightly smaller game.
I’m not some pro gamer speedrunner whatever
A rough ordering (hopefully within a few edits):
truly tough bosses
- Ornstein & Smough (in a league of its own, really)
- Four Kings
- Gwyn, Lord of Cinder
- Black Dragon Kalameet
- Knight Artorias (I think my favorite)
it’s easy dying to these bosses
- Manus, father of the Abyss
- Capra Demon
- Gravelord Nito
- Bed of Chaos
- Bell Gargoyles
- Crossbreed Priscilla
- Taurus Demon
- Stray Demon
these weren’t too bad, just took time
- Ceaseless Discharge
- Sanctuary Guardian
- Sif, the great grey wolf
- Gaping Dragon
- Centipede Demon
- Havel the Rock
- Demon Firesage
I think even I got these in one try
- Dark Sun Gwyndolin
- Asylum Demon
- Iron Golem
seemingly easy bosses
- Seath the Scaleless
- Moonlight Butterfly
It took me so long to get through it, I really need to play it again to judge better. Oh well!
Looking back, this definitely seemed easier than Bloodborne. Shields!? With 100% damage reduction? A strange world, indeed.
The worst thing about the game is the sparse character interaction. Who knows where Siegmeyer will turn up next? Or even why? Whatever.
A lot of the game boiled down to stamina wars, which I guess is fair. A lot of hold-L1-release-L1 nonsense.
I am simply wearing out my PS4 controllers. I may need to buy another to get through Sekiro.
