Soon I'll be playing Elden Ring DLC... from what I've seen in previews looks amazing! :)

I started playing a game named Imperial Chronicles. It's still being developed.
Why? I like big ones, that's why.

If the ER DLC had come out a year ago, I might have played it. My memories of the game have become less fond over time, but then I was never much of a Souls fan.

I am currently playing Book of Hours, a fairly casual game that looks simpler than it really is. By one the Sunless Sea developers. I'm having a very good time with it.

I know that game, actually all those games (like the Cultist Simulator) are an inspiration, I would like to do something like that. Even if at first sight seems very complex :D a lot of info I mean!

Unlike Cultist Simulator, Book of Hours gets the difficulty right. :)

I hear ER DLC does not. :P

Well ER DLC depends a lot which build you have :)
I have 3 builds haha, I tried first with my mage (Chambara) and it's basically glass cannon. But managed to defeat the first tough boss (the dragon) after 10-12 tries which is not bad. Having a lot of fun anyway so far! (but I like souls games)

Yeah, the important thing is to enjoy yourself, of course. I hear a lot of complaining about bosses one-shotting people, but it might be the usual learning the moves thing. :lol:

Yes well, it's how dark souls always worked. Elden Ring was definitely made easier for the casual crowd (and I liked that too tbh).

OK after spending (wasting lol) the whole afternoon on Rellana, I have to say that I'm disappointed. I mean, not for the difficulty, there are some setup that claims makes it easy - but a good game (a triple AAA game with millions budget) shouldn't "force" a build or way of playing. It should be hard but doable with all builds, tanks, casters, etc.
I think I have died 50 times minimum, I never wasted so much time on a boss in ANY souls game ever. And I heard there are some bosses worse than this one... :lol:
