Does anyone else not use the Auto-Targetting?
I realised something many hours in that I hadn't been using the lock-on at all. Very rarely I've since used it against some bosses/mini-bosses, though.
But it got me thinking - I've heard some people having problems with the lock-on being awkward (especially in group situations). Maybe don't rely on it and just rely on manual combat more, atleast against groups.
I use the auto-targeting all the time, but I did have to adjust to the controls, seeing as they are slightly wonkier compared to Demon's Souls.
You have to actually flick the analog stick to switch targets in Dark Souls. Once I got that down, it was all smooth sailing.
Aiming magic without auto-targeting would be the most difficult thing ever, so no.
the priority the auto-target in this game when facing multiple enemies in melee range is total retard. I can kill an enemy that's right in front of me, and the reticule will jump to an enemy behind me when there's one right in front of me, but it's just a little bit farther and it screws me up so bad.
But you need it to block, so w/e, have to live with it.
I mostly use auto-targeting, but on occasion I do not. Dropping it when you are surrounded generally makes it easier to attack multiple guys with a swipe or avoid hitting a wall in a tight spot.
That said I find myself constantly pushing in the right analog hoping it will cycle to the next person. Throwing off my game, and not sure why in the heat of battle my brain thinks this is the right thing to do.
I dunno, I'd say it's 50-50 for me. I like to keep moving so I don't target much and go for kicks and back stabs. I do target for aiming magic or when I need to turtle up to try to counter. When in a confined space I also target since you can't really get around them.
