Man you really know your stuff when it comes to Souls!!! That was one of the things I'd heard about why Demon Souls was particularly tough, because they pretty much didn't have bonfires.
That's one of the things I love so far bout DS3 btw, the boss fights feel a lot more unique, there's plenty of variety. Whereas with DS2 I felt like there was A LOT of just 'big guy with a a big weapon'
Ever since I played Demon's Souls for the first time many years ago, the "Souls" series quickly turned into an all time favorite of mine, so I guess I do know a thing or two about it. These days I rarely have the time and motivation to finish big AAA games, but I spent a lot of time on each Souls game I played, usually finishing them more than once.
If you get to play Demon's Souls somehow, you'll probably find most of the boss fights and the general gameplay much easier when compared to Dark Souls 3 or Bloodborne. But like Dark Souls 1, Demon's Souls has great potential for frustration. I really wouldn't recommend it to newcomers to the series, but you shouldn't have too much trouble after you've already played through the other Souls games. ( Although it might feel like playing in slow-motion, after DS3's and Bloodborne's combat pacing. )
Yeah, DS2 has some memorable boss fights too, but there are lots of "generic" humanoid boss opponents. Demon's Souls only has a handful of those, most of the others are rather creative creature designs, and most of them have some special boss fight mechanic, so the standard "stay close and circle to their back" strategy won't do any good.
half thse consoles hav lame-ass namies when you staph think 'boot it
liek 'super' nes
uuh 'mega' drive then
Sega Saturn wasn't a bad name. Or the Jaguar. I guess Sega Dreamcast was all right, too. Or the working title for the Nintendo Gamecube "Dolphin".
On the other hand, Microsoft has gone full retard with their console names. Xbox was OK-ish. Xbox 360 was... weird. Then they named the third
Xbox "Xbox One". WTF? And then they had a decent name with their "Project Scorpio", but instead decided to name it "Xbox One X" ... Because you can't have too many "X" in your product name, I guess?
Either their marketing team is suffering from brain damage, or their intended target audience...
