I'm a souls veteran. I bought Demon's Souls back when it came out. I'm no stranger to the series and yadda yadda yadda but for the life of me I cannot seem to get the damn parry down!!!
There appears to be a pretty big delay between when you press the button and when your character actually does the swipe of the shield, much larger than before. The both times I defeated Gwyn at the end of Dark Souls, I did it only by parrying but in this game I just can't get it down. Am I alone?
