The Dark Souls series is now in a Zelda-like open world. Goes live at 9pm PST

Early reviews are extremely positive

Alright, this game is legit. If you've liked Dark Souls you'll be right at home here.

The kid is extremely frustrated. Says it's the hardest game she's ever played.

You beat it yet, or did the game beat you?

Friend of mine says "it doesn't really feel like you're fighting bosses, it feels like you're fighting a set of moves". There is one "right way" (depending on your class) to beat the bosses and you pretty much have to stick to the "pattern" for each boss.

I guess that's kinda how these "Souls" games are, I haven't played any of the previous ones though.

That's a pretty reductive argument from your friend and I couldn't disagree more. Yes, like any boss fight you have to learn the attacks. This has always been true in gaming. But saying they're nothing but a set of moves is completely ignoring their great designs. They are all so different.

And he's also wrong that there is a "right' way to play. You can build whatever you want. Sure, some bosses will be harder if you build a character that only deals fire damage and fight a boss that's heavily resistant to fire damage. That's more of a character choice flaw than a game one.

Basically your friend is so wrong that I'm now judging you. How dare you.
