The big frame killers seem to be AO, effects, lighting, and shadow.

Thread Starter 

Anyone finish both DLCs? I played a few minutes of Ariandel and haven't touched it since then lol.

 

Honestly I think DS3 is the worst of the series. Not that it's bad.... Just, too much fanservice and nothing really new or interesting.

 

DS1>DS2>DS3

Totally agree there. Going through vanilla DS3 is a bit of chore due to how linear the world is and rehashed from DS1 some enemies/areas are.

I did play and complete both DLCs, apart from one optional (and infuriating) boss in Ringed City. The DLC, in my opinion, is way better than DS3 vanilla thou i prefer DS2 DLC more.

I have yet to beat the optional boss, but it's been great so far. Not quite as fun as DS2 DLC, but still really good.

That optional boss is definitely an endurance fight. While you can cheese it with pestilent mercury, your only other real option is to learn its pattern. I died 50 times. It is weak to lightning based weapons however, and can be staggered if you consistently hit its head throughout the fight.

I never played any of that Dark Souls games, but I'll try and I'm sure I'll waste so much time for that. Is there any connection between them ? I heard DS stories generally sucks, devs prefer to NOT telling story to us. Is that true ?

I watched some Demon's Souls gameplay but I can't play it because ı don't have any PS3 and I just don't like consoles but firstly I'll start with DS1. Any suggestions for me ?
