[QUOTE=The Hag;4823834]I've heard complaints about the PC controls. There is some debate over whether a PS3 controller is the way to go. But it's probably just a matter of taste and what one is used to.

Even on the PS3, co-op and invasions seem to be dropped off once you get out of the Undead Burg/Parish. Don't know about the Forest or the Kiln, since I don't hang out there.

I did the last Beta test for DSII and it was brutally awesome. Release next month! Yay![/QUOTE]

Nah, invasions in Sen's Funhouse, Anal Rodeo, Oolacile, and even the Painted World are pretty common, last I checked. As for the controller debate, there really isn't one, aside from whether to use a PS3 or 360 controller. (which is subjective) Anyone who tries to play Dark Souls with a mouse and keyboard and doesn't like how their own poor choices reflect on them has entitlement issues.

^This, but on a broader scale. It's 2014, some game DO play better with a mouse and keyboard, but yo, not all of them. There's no way in hell you can convince me to playing something like NBA2k13 or Jet Set Radio HD with a m/kb over a 360 controller on my GLORIOUS MASTER RACE BOX.

That being said, playing Bioshock Infinite on the PS3 was dumb dumb dumb dumb.

Also, co-op/ invasions depend greatly on levels. (within 10 levels + 10% of your level to interact, with a few exceptions like the forest or the Darkmoon covenant) I was helping out people with my SL43 giantdad in Anor Londo against Bulk and Skull earlier today, was getting summoned like wildfire.

Original darksouls I'd play on PS3, I have friends who play on that. If I were to buy it on PC (Since I'm probably steering clear of this generation of consoles for a bit), I'd use a PS3 controller.

When a friend of mine was playing it, it did seem as though lag-switching was rather common

It's true that I am always under leveled, but even so I used to get a lot more action for Quelaag, the Depths and BiggieSmalls. SL40 is definitely the sweet spot for Anor Londo. So it may just be that there are fewer people at lower SL now for whatever reason.

I'm currently trying to do a SL1 run of Demon's Souls - which I find to be the harder of the two games.

Single player, the only place the lag is really terrible is the Blighttown swamp. On line play though? :eeek: It's super annoying when an invader teleports behind you for the lagstab.

[quote]I'm currently trying to do a SL1 run of Demon's Souls - which I find to be the harder of the two games.[/QUOTE]Good luck with that. At least DeS seems to have a nicer time window for parries/ ripostes and wider box for backstabs.

Yeah the lagstab. It happened often enough he got pissed off and decided to do it to someone else. So we ended up sending files to each other across the network to screw up his connection, thus getting revenge for being lagstabbed against some poor unsuspecting gent/lady.

It's funny how that works. If someone cheeses me in SC2 (Like, tries to end the game pretty much while you're still in early game, like at 4:30 on the game timer), I generally open up the next game with a 10 pool (Pretty much exactly that) or some sort of other cheese. Apparently there's psychology to support why we do stuff like this.

But yeah, lagswitching is the name we had (Not sure if its a common name) for people who cause themselves to intentionally lag for the purposes of scoring free souls online.

Personally I go keyboard/mouse for the one shooter I play. They tried this with console and it didn't work, the games too fast for it to work. RTS games obviously keyboard/mouse, because they pretty much aren't worth playing on consoles. Action/adventure/hack-n-slash, you'll have to pry my dualshock 3 away from me. As for fighters, I have an arcade stick, which come to think of it actually set me back more than my keyboard and the mouse I'm going to buy (Not the mouse I have currently though). Elder Scrolls is one game I'd rather play keyboard/mouse, purely for the sole fact I was playing an archer a little while back.

#23 Zweihander on 5 years ago

There actually is a more widely-known name for that, it's called a "lag shield."

#24 The Hag on 5 years ago

I've heard that DSII is going do online matching by length of time you've played the character as well as soul level. That should cut down some on the twinkies.

#25 GoldenTriforce on 5 years ago

Super Smash Brothers for Wii U
X
Mario Kart 8
Sonic Boom
Kirby Triple Deluxe
Watch Dogs (maybe, kind of lost the excitement after the delay)

If this is true, then wouldn't there be a resulting downside for people who like to take their time and explore everything?

Good point. Though presumably there would be other people who like to explore that you could summon. Or maybe it's just for invasions, not co-op? Or maybe it's not true at all. I read it on the internet somewhere. But I've been avoiding DSII news for the last couple of weeks because there's too many spoilers at this point.

#28 VulsaviiK on 5 years ago

Yeah I'd play PC + Ps3 control with some 3rd party drivers I, well had installed, need to re-download them since I did a clean install of windows recently. Probably do that next week after I've done another clean install, not sure if I'll have to do that yet or not.

One perk the console has - no maintenance required

#29 ehknz on 5 years ago

Maaaan it's all about that Kingdom Hearts 3 doe!
Lol I joke. Although that is one of my most anticipated games. I don't really have anything else in the list.
I'm lying, I'm dying for Heroes of the Storm. Looks soooo good!

#30 Zweihander on 5 years ago

Welp, Dark Souls II has let me down, somewhat. Still looking forward to Drakengard 3, though.
