This is my first Souls game, but I've been loving it. People in reviews kept saying it was very hard, but that made it more satisfying. Which is fine to say, but I don't think I really got what they were saying until last night.
I'm playing a warrior. I found my way back to the Asylum, and I was fighting this Black Knight, and he kept killing me, again and again. I was doing good damage, though, and was certain I could kill him if I just found the right pattern. But he KEPT getting me. And then eventually I was desperate and trying crazy shit. So I took off ALL my armor and I double-handed my club rather than use my shield, because he was killing me when he hit me anyway, right? the armor wasn't helping. So I took it all off and I was a lot faster. It still took a ton of tries, but it was easier, and I eventually killed him. I've never played a game that makes you work so hard for victory. But then again, I've never played a game where victory tastes this god damned sweet, either.
Have you had any Eureka moments like this? Post them!
