I don't use a shield, I duel wield the uchi and the other katana so it's a bit more challenging. I do agree with the OP about the laggy framerates and the poor decision making due to noobing the game with shields.

In DS str/dex builds were an option, in DKS it's all about maxing out health and endurance and wearing heavy armor + shield. I watched a video of a guy pvping get backstabbed literally 5 times in a row and survive easily. It really made me sad.

Game is still fun to an extent but Demon's Souls was where it was at. I guess this is just another example of the dumbing down of games to appease the masses and make money. Capitalism at it's finest ladies and gents.

I pvp constantly in the forest and I never seen anyone sit behind their shields, being immune to damage. If they were constantly running around w/ block I just cause a guard break or bypass it. Only problem I'd ever had was fighting 3 people at once, which I just can't do because two is the most I can handle in a fight. I use a combination of a Lightning Iaito and a washing pole for my fights.

I'll agree the framerate dips can be annoying, but other than that this game is incredible to me. The areas are so varied and the game is deep and rich, I like it more than demons souls. Plus the coop is tons of fun, lots of people to help and have help you.

The developer stated repeatedly that it's not a sequel to demons souls so while they share similarities it shouldn't be expected to be like it.

I still don't understand complaints about the difficulty, it's part of the game style, and it's all surmountable. This kind of difficulty was normal in the 8 bit and 16 bit days. Games like the original zelda were crazy hard! I'm about 60% complete the game probably and I'm not amazing at action games by any means.

I look at the encounters and challenges as puzzles to solve. Like the boss fight against queen queelag, I was destroyed on my own at first. So I got summoned by some people who were doing it and learned her mechanics of the fight. After that she was easy and I solo'd her no problem.

Similarly a powerful item will be somewhere and a bunch of enemies that are super powerful are blocking it, so I'll strip down and make a mad dash for it, rolling to dodge attacks and just make it, get killed but keep the item, i get a kick out of it.
