Wait for it.................................
If this is about that huge wolf/opossum looking thing that came out of nowhere, this shot was right after I defeated it.    :whew

Damn... 2 of those opossum beasts things?!?  Fuuuu... Glad they don't respawn.  For whatever stupid reason, the last one took me like 6-7 tries.  My chi must've been misaligned.  Bout halfway through Ithyrill Dungeon right now.  Trying to find a way down to the level from where that giant is standing.

Had my most fun invasion yet. In NG+ I got invaded right as I was walking up to fight the Stray Demon. A single hit from the Demon would take almost my entire health bar, so if the invader just waited for that they could easily kill me. I tried chasing him while dodging, and every time I'd get some attacks in he would run to safety next to the Demon and heal. This went on for a while, until... the Demon takes a big swing at me, and kills the invader standing between us in one shot.

Apparently neither of us realized while the Stray Demon doesn't target invaders, he can hit them.

Was hoping to have DS3 finished by this weekend, but that's not gonna happen.   :-\  Will need to take a break to play Bloodstained.  But I will come back! And I WILL beat a Souls game!!!  :salute

Finished the Anor Londo area.  Aldrich was a bit of a pain in the ass, but made it after about 4-5 tries.  Made it to the Profaned Capital bonfire.  Still got some nooks and crannies to go back to in Irithyll Dungeon.  Tell you what... Getting cursed in this game fucks me up bad. It's spikes like crazy, even with my curse defense being decent (I think).  The world design in this game is all sorts of awesome.

The "Wait for it" was meant for Anor Londo unravel.

Did you play DS1?

Anor Londo being in DS3 was for me the single best WTF moment in Dark Souls series. I did not know it beforehand, I did not anticipate it, and when I pulled that circular elevator lever my mind was going crazy i"Can it be?!?!? Is this....... ?!?!?" and then LO & BEHOLD Anor Londo text is put on screen. God damn that wrecked me.................................... I did not expect that in DS3. I was flabbergasted. Stunned. Shocked.

Easily the best moment in the whole DS3 playthrough.

Oh, I thought the wait for it was meant for Pontif Sulyvahn fight after that. I remember that being one of the tougher bosses in DS3.

Wow... Yhorm the Giant? ... Didn't even hurt me.  I even took a video snag to look back and verify, and not even his AOE fire attacks were taking any HP off.  ???  Needless to say, he was cake.  I did have the onion Knight with me too though, but still.....  he literally was not hurting me and my sword does some good damage too. Took less than a minute to defeat...

Now the Dancer??.... Wtf.  I tried for an hour straight to defeat that bitch.  FINALLY beat her though.. by far the hardest boss fight in this game to me so far.

Hahahaha, glad you're back to Bloodborne Cindi. You can beat Ludwig without Summoning. I did. The only one I ended up summoning on was the rooftop boss you beat Master Logarius or whatever.


Are you at least getting to the 2nd part of the Ludwig fight?

"Aah, you were at my side, all along" is probably the best bit of dialogue in all the Souls games.

Itís really tough fight with huge hit boxes. Canít really give any strategy analysis since itís been years since I played it. Just keep trying and getting used to the patterns and donít give up. Ludwig became internet famous at the time because it was a huge choke point in the expansion. People really struggled with it and many memes were made.

Also the DLC only gets harder from here lol, although the second boss is way easier (beat it on my first try), the final dlc area & boss though will make Ludwig seem normal difficulty.

*edit* watched your vid, oh you beat it, haha. Nice job!

Is there a way to make Dark Souls Remastered look as good as Dark Souls 1? The remastered versions lighting is horrific and ruins the artistic choice of darker lighting while at the same making the graphics worse because it gives the more dated textures more light.

I inadvertently cheesed Maria my first time with Holy Moonlight Sword L2 charge attack. It can knock her down over and over as long as you have silver bullets.

She has a really cool moveset in her final phase so I missed out.  :-\

Defeated the Nameless King and Champion Gundyr, and just got to Archdragon Peak.  Nameless King wasn't too difficult what with his wide legged hitbox.  Champion Gundyr though... That thing was pretty damn aggressive.  He beat me twice, and on the third time, a summon appeared before the fog, so I said eff it and summoned someone called Gundyr Slayer...  Motherfucker hit Gundyr once or twice.. then he got hit once and got half his hp knocked off, so then he decided to run to a corner and let me fight him alone... Got Gundyr down to about 20% of his hp before he got me again.  What a total bitch.  Just did it myself after next round.  ::)

That's quite a feat, Svejk, because Nameless King is scored as one of the toughest if not *the* toughest boss fight in DS3 with no DLCs. Hardest than the final boss even.

Wait a muthafuckin' second.................. you just got to the Archdragon Peak? Like just arrived there?

Made it to the Grand Archives.  Man this game just keeps on going! 

I have one minor gripe that annoys me (there's a several actually, but I've learned to look past them mostly).  The ambient noise with the breathing is in like 99% of the enclosed areas in DS3.  It's freaky and cool, but come on... I'm sure they could've done more variety in that department.  There's one other sound riff that plays ONLY in the sewer area of the Undead Settlement (from what I've found) where you can hear this subtle, but sinister like whispers from some lady.  it sound so creepy and awesome and wish they could've used it more often throughout...  Or just have alot more of such atmospheric sounds.  It's that important, imo.  With such variety in locales, they totally failed in the variety of sound.

Kos isn't "easy".
Dragon Rider is easy, he could 1 shot you, and he'd still be easy, because he has like 3 moves and they're all very slow and predictable.

Besides, damage output being what it is, it's a standard for most of their bosses, even Owl in Sekiro would be a simple boss (he has like 5 attacks) if it wasn't that every attack does 70% damage to health/posture.
But that makes it not "easy", just simple.

To be fair he is the hardest boss in the game and the ultimate final dlc end boss, so yeah itís a challenge.

Honestly I struggled at first but got the hang of it and felt like a DMC3 vergil kinda fight and I really liked it by the time I beat it. Always felt like I was making progress.

At least the main game final boss will easy for you after your training on Kos. Itís actually a pretty tough fight pre-DLC.
