Currently 368.22 with gtx 980ti. Friend has an older driver with now problems. Going to install the latest (368.69) and see what happens.

How do you guys feel Dark Souls III compares to Dark Souls? I haven't tried the second one yet, but I enjoyed the first.

DS3 is the worst for me. I left the game very fast, while I've spent more than 4k hours on DS1 and DS2 combined. It's simplified, linear, PvP sucks. But for some casual gamer that will beat the game only once and then move on to other titles it'll be a great experience. Not likely will s/he even notice the things that bothers me.

Same. DS2 is my most played, but I still played through DS1 a few times. I played through DS3 once and that was it. I tried PvPing and that only lasted for a week or two and I got bored.

 

It felt kind of like The Force Awakens. There's no mistaking that it's a Dark Souls game/Star Wars movie, but there's nothing new or interesting enough to make it rise above its predecessors. In fact, the PvP felt like a big step back, and that's what keeps the game alive for me.

Hm, interesting, thanks. I never actually did a lot of PvP in Dark Souls, but then again, I played the game after it had been out long enough to turn to dust in the Steam Store. I'll likely end up playing both Dark Souls II and III just for the sake of completion though.

Agreed. However, there is a chance that the DLCs will add something truly unique and interesting.

So far so good with the drivers.

I like that coop is easier or seems to be.

I got bored in PVP in DS3 after only 1 week. I stuck with UGS/GA type weapons on my main build mostly. Profaned Greatsword and Yhorm's Great Machete were my 2 favorites.

I was able to make a spellsword build work as well. This was when most were saying spells are garbage in PVP. I had a dark mage SL 125, dark infused dark sword. And what I'd do is throw up affinity, and rush directly at you and take a running swipe with the dark Sword. Most players just think they can circle strafe to avoid getting hit just to get hit with the running R1 + a few of the affinity projectiles. Or sometimes I'd throw a couple GRS then rush in directly behind them. Again if you circle straffe, you're getting hit by the rush. Apparently, based on the amount of hate mail I've gotten on that Dark Mage, forcing people to have to Iframe through spells is gimmicky and OP. If I really wanted to give them the sniffles, I would have used washing pole running R1s + Affinity or GRS. That would have amounted to some massive QQs.

I had people sending me invites on steam to vent - regularly. My replies were typical juvenile git gud scrub. Or nice REKing u. Git rekt m8? Etc. Seeing as how they didn't deserve any respect beyond that if they're going to get mad enough to send hatemail.

Anyway, I got bored. The player base was just really terrible at the game. Too bad to really keep me interested. It wasn't uncommon for me to get summoned to a fight club and win 10-12 in a row. With most of the fights ending in under 15 secs.

Dark Souls 2 was pretty much the same deal. I remember camping the bellfry, and waiting to get invaded. Sat there and killed invaders for 30 straight minutes. Even got double invaded a few times. Never lost. BoB arena went almost the same way.
