It's coming back to me pretty quick again. I did also finish that DS1 run before SaS.
Early observations about DS3:
OMFG the screaming from Bloodborne is back. It might even be the same track.
Miyazaki must have a screaming fetish.
It's purty, the first area past the starting zone is bright and reminds me of Anor Londo, so it's already less oppresive than Bloodborne. (just shut up with the screaming already)
After a pretty gravy start zone and first boss the next zone kicks your teeth in SoTFS DLC style. Gank packs, ambushes, brutal NPC's that will smash down your stamina break your shield, and proceed to stunlock 2-3 shot you without stopping. Just non stop attacks.They must have unlimited stamina. But yeah the area is not holding back on the "This is Dark Souls!" muahahah.
I found a Claymore! So I already did a bit of farming so I could one hand it.
On second boss now. Already have a shortcut dodge mob get back to boss route pretty much down. Will try it again after work.
It's glorious so far.
