Doesn't this game already exist? Pretty sure it does. It's called Dark Souls.
It makes me sad that this game is being made and something like Deathfire can't even scrape up a Kickstarter campaign.
I haven't seen enough gameplay to comment on AI but I will say lords of the fallen looks alot nicer graphics wise than DS.
Also, while I love DS 1 and 2 and beat them both I wouldn't say the enemies were all that unpredictable. Once you learned there behavior you could use the same tactics to beat them 99% of the time, especially bosses.
Not to mention that the same tactic was highly effective on probably 90% of all the enemies. Charge them and stay real close then circle strafe and occasionally roll as needed.
Now if I start a new game I can run through the burg naked with just fists and never die. (ok, I equip a weapon for havel and parry him to death) Sure once in a blue moon they will mix there attacks in a way I didn't expect and hit me once but dying is never really a threat.
As I said I love Dark souls but it's AI really just boils down to learning patterns as well.
Doesn't a game like Deathfire already exist? pretty sure it does. It's call wizardry or darkspire or M&M or frayed knights or you get the idea.
I'm sure there's room for some Dark Souls clones in the gaming world.
YOU may choose to support complete ripoffs, but I will not.
One could make the argument that supporting games like this just leads to more publishers pushing out clones of other games to cash in without having an original bone in their bodies.
This is true for all action adventure games. But with Dark Souls, I found that there is more than one pattern of attack for each enemy and they switch between them.
I am not as good as you in Dark Souls and some of these attack patterns do get me even when I am very careful. Having said that most of my deaths in Dark Souls 2 were because of the stupid mouse lag.
I hope they do a good job with the mouse and keyboard for Lords of the Fallen, it indeed looks very good.
I can respect that but I'm not sure how you can call lords a complete ripoff Unless you want to say Deathfire is a ripoff as well.
Lords will have very similar combat and 3rd person perspective but then they put there own spin and feature on it.
Deathfire will have very similar combat and a first person perspective and then they will put there own spin and features on it.
What's the difference? Oh, that's right. You like Deathfire but not Dark Souls.
Pretty much all games copy stuff from other games.
And yes I will support games I like whether they are similar to others or not. Should you not play Risen because you played gothics or ignore Icewind dales because you played BG or or skip DAO because you played NWN.
I could go on and on. If you don't want to play games that copy other games then you'll have to retire your keyboard and mouse.
I don't know man. This game just rubs me the wrong way. Those other games you listed were made by the same developers/publishers, and this game has no affiliation with From Software, unless you consider affiliation completely ripping off source material .
