Are you me?
Im finishing up DS3 after playing DS1 a month or so ago, but didnt get through the DLC on it so I will pick it up again soon, might try a cleric or archer this time.
I dunno, am I? Are you a weirdo like me who actually likes DS2? Cuz that's what I'm working through at the moment, having a fun time playing a dex focused hexer. The online being more active than I expected has been a pleasant surprise, maybe it's because of the summer sale on Steam? Now is probably a fun time to play those games if that's the case. I'm trying to get through all of the souls games and Sekiro before Elden Ring comes out.>didnt get through the DLC
Never done the DLC for 1 or 3? They're both fantastic but the DLC for 3 has the best bosses in the series IMO. And is this your first playing through 3? How is it going?
Never played 2, I herd a lot of mixed things about it, so deiced not to fork out the $30 for it.
I liked 3 as it felt like DS1 but more polished and I really liked the level design and use of multiple paths to get to diffrent areas ( I didnt even realize the cathedral existed on my first 2 characters because I always activated the painted world before I tried going around the building.)
The Jolly cooperation is still good on the prepare to die edition and 3 so that has been a lot of fun, not so much on PVP because im not really good at the game and just struggle though most of the areas, I still get wiped by the Capra demon boss regularly.
Im on the ringed city on 3 and still have to finish the painted world dlc.
They are hard, but thats what makes me like them, so much so, I have about 100 hours on DS1 and 3 each.
I think 3 is fantastic as well, especially the aesthetic and enemy design and atmosphere. It's more linear than 1, sure, but it's so much more polished and consistent in terms of quality of the levels. And of course the bosses are really awesome, definitely the best in the series IMO. And I personally like a lot of the story and lore in the game, I think it expanded on 1 in a nice way.>The Jolly cooperation is still good on the prepare to die edition and 3 so that has been a lot of fun, not so much on PVP because im not really good at the game and just struggle though most of the areas
I really like how the multiplayer is implemented in those games. The messages and summon system do a lot in my opinion to balance out the "default" difficulty, but you always have the option to not be human/embered if invasions are giving you a lot of trouble. And of course doing honorable 1v1s or just invading and being a pain in the butt is fun too.>Im on the ringed city on 3 and still have to finish the painted world dlc.
Good luck! The DLCs for 3 are pretty brutal, but really fun. Not that it really matters, but you are intended to do Ashes of Ariandel before Ringed City, since it came out first, just in case you care about that sort of thing.
>>1008>Ashes of Ariandel before Ringed City
Im not even sure how to access it. Im not against using a walk though, but I would like to just "experience" the game before dont a completionist run. the only thing I have looked up for either game is the location of the silver serpent rings in 1 and 3. The rest i just try to use my intuition and git.gud or die trying.
One of my favorite things about the series as a whole is that the items you collect and the environment tell you much more about the story and let you discover it on you own with out being bogged down by cut scenes that take you out of the action. I was surprised to find that 3 seems to be a prequel to DS1 and thats pretty cool.
Although, my favorite part of it all is handing off the controller to an unsuspecting victim to try it out, and their face when the realization that there is no pause feature in the game.

You've been there, that's just what the Painted World DLC is called.
Do you want someone to play with? I'm on a couple of times every week, mostly in my necro or my thief. Working on my first legendary.
Sure thing sushi! Left my alias in the email field. Recently I've had the time to play a lot more, so you've probably seen me running around getting my ass kicked at some point.
Good luck on your legendary!
Added, thanks sushi I'll do my best
No idea how advanced you were originally but these things are hecking expensive
I was thinking of the prototype. It took me a week to figure this out.
That's a great list, gonna check them out. Thank for sharing.>>405
I wanted to play it, thanks for the reminder.>>647
I have this game on my wishlist, might pick it up on the sales.>>1140
I need to play it. Really loved To the moon back in the day.>>455>>457
Yume Nikki and LSD Dream Emulator are my comfiest games. I was really into Yume nikki fangames years ago.
Answered Prayers was my favorite.
I'm also a big danmaku/shmup fag so Mushihimesama it's my top pick for comfy game, I love everything about it.
YN and LSD are two of my absolute favorite games. I'm glad others love them too.
Drakengard has a good plot though. Worth it in the end.
The rest of your picks sound good, especially Project Wingman.>>1146
I've bought it a year ago and still haven't played it…>>1197
I find UnReal World comfy.
Once you secure basics for survival you can adventure across fictional ancient Finland. And I like to read developer's blog about adventures in real current Finland.>>642
Osaka Simulator… I often think to myself, this is what my life is.
until you get a njerpez sword thrusted into your eye, or mauled to death by a bear, I guess. sometimes it's really tense.
sushi why do you do this to me…
So it's literally just Azazel right
Can't watch that dance without hearing this is my head
Illya a cute
I had never heard of this game until now and I bought it just based on those screenshots. Really beautiful game. I'm still in the first area trying to get enough symbols to get through one of those symbol rooms. Getting used to the movement is kinda tough, I wonder if there are tricks to it I'm missing or if certain rooms are just meant to be approached from elsewhere.
Fite me in xonotic pussy
The movement definitely takes some getting used to. There's a comprehensive guide on the subject if you're interested (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1o3gouaiHsHT2H9d2HD5gDhgmoWwoL94gSFt7Ka1-vDk
) but I wouldn't worry too much about it, the basics like the crouching leap and wall jumping are pretty much all you need. One general tip is that if you ever feel like an area is overwhelmingly difficult its probably better to turn back and go somewhere else. The game is pretty non-linear but certain routes can be brutally difficult compared to others.
I got to garbage world and some long thin snake grabbed my spear, dove underwater with it, and then never came back lol. I love all the moments like that.
This game is amazing for the sense of mystery and discovery. I'm still not sure if those spear carrying guys in the tower area are friends or not. One of them slapped me up for getting too close but I think I might've hurt him trying to kill a lizard he was fighting.
Rain World is amazing and deserves far more attention
I'm in love with it so far. Big recommendation from me as long as you don't mind some bullshit difficulty, weird controls, and having nothing explained to you. Since I wrote >>1498
I've played like 20 hours and I still feel like I've only scratched the surface of it. It's incredibly beautiful, the atmosphere is amazing, the controls are fun once you get used to them, and I enjoy the tense scenarios that the difficulty presents. Every new area I've found has truly blown me away, but especially some of the areas further in.
The place with the thunder and the crazy metal birds
is downright terrifying, and finding the cute little blue robot in the water area
was amazing and really highlights how well the game nails the feeling of being lost in ancient, alien history as something small and uninformed and weak. I felt so bad when I grabbed one of her little glowing flies and she started crying
I just now got to Five Pebbles after the little yellow guy started showing me pictures of the glowflies, which I assume I have to bring to the robot friend
, and I gave the game a break after witnessing the area gimmick. I can't wait to go back and explore it. I love how ominous it feels as I'm crawling into this massive machine. It makes me wonder how much of an answer there is to all the cryptic stuff in this game.
Yeah man that area was legit stressful. There's no shelters either and they just barely give you enough time to get through it before the rain.
Well damn, I got through Five Pebbles
and I was certainly not expecting this.
I played a bunch of heavily modded Rimworld today. Watching your colony grow is really fun, I'm currently working towards getting a hospital building with vitals monitors and a little garden for med production up and running, and I built a dining hall with some sleeping space for visitors to my colony to sit and eat at.>>1005>I'm trying to get through all of the souls games and Sekiro before Elden Ring comes out.
Update on this now that Elden Ring finally has a release date. Not only have I beaten all the Dark Souls games again, I got 100% achievements on DS2 and DS3! Currently working on DS1 but grinding out all the weapons is really tough.
The comfiest game I've played is Dewprism/Threads of Fate. I got this game when it came out but unfortunately it's become a bit of a hidden gem despite being a great game. Sugimoto, the director, said he wanted to make something easier for children that would recapture the dreams and fantasies of his own childhood. It's not the most sophisticated game in terms of mechanics but it's still fun. The game has a calm, mysterious atmosphere for the most part, due in large part to an excellent score by Junya Nakano (who also worked on Final Fantasy X). Supposedly Ken Akamatsu was hired to develop a manga adaptation which was cancelled before publication. I still haven't been able to confirm this but his brother did work as a sound programmer for Dewprism.

Deltarune chapter 2 soon!
Looks nice, I put it on my list.
