I can’t think of anything worse than a quest log.

I have no idea where I’m going or what I’m doing and I bloody love it. No map filled with markers, no pop ups, no compass filled with tat. Just pick a direction and off you go. Glorious.

Honestly, shit like that is a selling point for Gen X’rs like me. I still have a copy of Mastertronic’s Knight Tyne with notes written in the tape inlay. 

 

Indeed. 

 

I shouldn't be of course but remain baffled that so many 'gamers' seem to want all their games to be the same especially when that same is more Assassins bloody Creed type nonsense. 

 

Thank fuck for Miyazaki and co for continuing to do their own thing.

Yep, and the best thing about that is that the industry will no doubt take note when you consider the reception this has received.

Ha, I saw this earlier today which kind of sums it up in an amusing way.  (4mins long)

PS am defo going deprived / loincloth / naked guy as my first character.  I want to feel scared and terrified and stealth around looking for my first gear :D

 

I've been contemplating that too - fully RP'ing the exploration aspect - you equip as you gather and upgrade your stats accordingly. But, I'm worried it'll turn into a mish-mash of a build like i always have first go-around.

 

The actual plan is to be OP by Sunday, then Monday coop!

I'm 6 and a half hours in, no idea if I'm doing it right (although I finished Demon's Souls without knowing if I was doing it right) and it's bloody incredible. I went off track immediately (unintentionally, of course), then when I did go the "right" way I smashed my head against the first boss for an hour to no avail before going exploring. I'll get another few hours in tomorrow, hopefully I can take down that boss.

Just spent the last hour trying to beat Owl Father's second fight in Sekiro. Yeah, no go. Not only that fail, but I threw a glass of Coke over my computer in frustration and it blew up, so no Elden for me.

 

Ok, that's bullshit but after my tenth try I almost launched my Elite 2 controller at the screen.

 

Bad idea to try and wrap up some late stage bosses in my Souls games before 11pm, pure stress, managed Old King Allant in Remake but failed dismally at Darkeater Midir in DS3 and to top it off the pure gnashing of teeth hour with Owl Father.

 

Should have played Bubble Bobble or some other chill shite.

 

20 mins to go.

Much the same here. Loads of exploring.  Agreeing to all proposals without a clue as to their consequences.  Some sneaking to avoid encounters.  

 

Genius.

https://www.twitch.tv/dansgaming has a 10900k/3080 and has been running it at 4k max on the 1.02 patch with good performance. I checked the Cohh stream and his game was dropping many frames on a 9900k/3080.

 

So there are some discrepancies somewhere. Maybe background software or an odd game setting. Dan did force vsync in the driver and was using a wired xbox pad. Motion blur was disabled too.

Are you drunk? Because i am. 🤣

 

If you're not joking, then the last thing you should do on the Eve of a new FromSoftware game, is play the old ones. Clean slate etc.

No, but the option's there. See how the first hour of Elden goes before breaking and popping the cork.

 

Fuck, you've planted the seed.🤔
