It's totally danger-relevant. What do you think "walking on the razor's edge" means?

schneidend, I boiled down your point to only a couple of ( your own [and my own] ) words:
Not all games have a fair learning curve, and Dark Souls is one that simply throws the player to the wolves without much regard for ensuring the player has ability before being tested.
Dark Souls is considered hard because it punishes mistakes harshly and quickly.

guylongname, I did the same for you, except I'm using my own words:
Despite having a learning curve, video games become playable with time and energy invested into them, and so people who quit before figuring out how to play simply aren't adapting to the game. It's not hard to invest time and energy, so long as one has patience.

I read this thread, and those are the points and arguments that I picked up from it. Is what I said accurate at all?
User avatar #156 - schneidend (09/18/2014) [-]
I would disagree that Dark Souls, or any Souls game, throws you to the wolves, because the initial area in each iteration pits you against very weak enemies, has tutorial messages that teach you the controls which you can read or ignore, and even if you manage to die you don't lose much progress or souls. The tutorial boss in Demon's Souls doesn't expect you to win, so you're free to try your best with what you've learned so far, and Dark Souls 2 doesn't even have a tutorial boss. Dark Souls 1, on the other hand, did have a roadblock tutorial boss, which is kinda thrown-to-the-wolves design, but no more so than the boss of the first level of a Mega Man X game, let's say.

Other than that, yeah, the main point is that I think a game is difficult/hard/challenging if it punishes mistakes but allows you to make those mistakes on your own without cheapness. The Souls games fit this to a tee.

With that logic, you could say that all games and pasttimes are hard because no one will be able to pick up anything and go, so they are only adapting to difficulty
User avatar #112 - schneidend (09/18/2014) [-]
Except, not all games have fair difficulty (the old school Ninja Gaiden games) or are difficult to pick up and play (most arcade side-scrolling beat-em-ups), or punish mistakes severely enough so as to make a skilled player liable to lose once they have adapted to the difficulty. So, no, you cannot say that all games and pastimes are hard, at least not by the logic I was using.

To use an example that isn't UmuhgawdDarkSulssohard, I've been playing a lot of Destiny lately. Not to toot my own horn, but I've become pretty good at the game, able to flow through most encounters without dying, reviving teammates, and slapping aliens around like a champ. But, the enemies can deal a lot of damage, especially with their melee attacks, and for a close-combat-focused person like me, it requires pretty good timing to keep enemies semi-permanently-stunned with shotgun headshots so you can melee them safely, avoid their melee attacks, and maintain the flow of your attacks without dying or taking enough damage that another enemy can finish you off easily. If I fuck up that timing, especially against a higher-tier enemy like a Minotaur or Knight armed with a sword, I usually die, because the game punishes mistakes harshly.

See where' I'm going with this?

Yeah, but that's like saying that riding a bike is difficult. No, it isn't, but if it's your first time trying it, you'd think that it's impossible. But after a few days, you get it and you never forget. That's the same with dark souls. It's not like most games and requires for you to play differently, but once you get it, it's not chess
User avatar #108 - schneidend (09/18/2014) [-]
Adapting to difficulty does not eliminate the difficulty. Also, even when you're super pro, you're still going to make mistakes, and the game still punishes mistakes harshly but fairly. Being able to git gud is a sign that the game has fair difficulty, not that it is not difficult.

"Challenging" might be a better word than "hard," but the meaning is the same. The game doesn't hold your hand, but rarely does it feel too cheap when you get smacked down.

If I did any Workshop work for TF2, I'd probably make some Pyro and Heavy items first, as those are my favorite classes.

The problem is, I have no ability of how to do the modeling/texture stuff that goes into making a TF2 workshop piece, and have no desire to invest the time to do so. If I did, I'd probably be working on my New Vegas mod that adds unique variants of weapons that have no unique variants, like the "Sharktooth" chainsaw or "Crunchy" the sledgehammer.

It wouldn't let me reply to your latest comment, for some reason.

I agree that the state maintains control over a certain geographic location; that's what makes it a state. Agreed. On a minor note, while I agree it's the monopoly on power in its area, I wouldn't claim that it has authority, because to me that implies actual ownership rather than just the means to exercise de facto ownership. But you knew that's what I meant...

But again, it's confusing to say that government owns it. For instance, if someone said that a certain family owns a home, and someone asked who they meant by "a family", they would simply have to list off the individuals in this family to whom they were referring. So, who do you mean by "the state"? Does it include every single elected official, or also everyone employed in the public sector, or everyone who pays taxes? And if you can pin down who this person/people are, that only opens up a myriad of other questions.

And I understand that the questions don't mean that it's illogical, but just so many questions that pop up in even defining who owns the country, it serves as an indicator that this may be a faulty line of reasoning. I've heard that before the heliocentric model of the solar system was popularized, in geocentric models it took many pages and pages of extremely intricate circles within circles within circles just to track the locations of the Moon and of Mars each night. It wasn't wrong because it was so complicated, but rather it was complicated because it was wrong, or that they had the fundamentals wrong. And it seems to me the same thing is at work here when adhering to the idea that "the government" (thus unnamed) owns and has the right to all the land within the USA, as if they had the deed in their collective pocket.
User avatar #198 - douthit (09/17/2014) [-]
World view? I'm just trying to get an answer as to who this person or people are who "own the country". Obviously it's the citizens who each own their plot of land, or farm, or share of an apartment building or whatever. You haven't done anything to convince me of who or what owns it. You defend violence against nonviolent people in the form of the many laws and taxes we have as actually defensive and voluntary, because all 300,000,000 of us are renting land from someone. If you live in a world of words, you can say anything and have it make sense to you. It's like I'm asking you how clouds are formed, and you're responding with "God did it." That solves nothing and only further confuses the issue.

The state has sovereignty over its territory. That's the cornerstone of being a state. The government governs and owns the state. No single person needs to have a deed to the country just because you subscribe to the limited individualistic views.

User avatar #196 - douthit (09/17/2014) [-]
That's fine.

I was just trying to illustrate that "the government" can't own anything. People own things. Once we agree on that (which I think makes total sense), you can't really claim that "the government" can. By "the government owns the country", do you mean President Obama himself owns every inch of this land? Everyone who holds public office each owns an equal share of the nation? Who?

Obviously it's a ridiculous thing to claim, and trying to rationalize how some unnamed, conceptual figure owns all this land just leads to confusion. Logical things are easy to understand, or at least to understand the basics of. Once you have to contort your argument into such an unnatural position that you're defending that PersonX owns the land that 300,000,000 Americans pay for and live on, it should be painfully obvious that you've made a wrong turn somewhere.

Aye, found a sweet lil glitch.

If you want to do a new pvp character:

-Aqcuire boss soul (Any boss soul)
-Equip
-Do an r1 attack
-Shortly before the animation ends, press X then immediately start
-Use Estus flask
-If done right, it will now ask you to consume boss soul
-Boss soul will be consumed, but is still in your inventory

You can repeat that as much as you want, there is no limit. Same goes for fire keeper souls. ALL the humanity.

I'm level 110 now.

Raising your soul level is much more of a chore when you're actually trying. Before I'd be like "Oh no, I'm already SL 53 and I've only got like 20 Faith" or whatever.

Yeah, I really need to be careful what I raise. But hey, the highest I can go is 130 and still get loads of PVP action. 30 faith is enough anyway if you're not going all out on WOG spamming. A bit of vit with fap ring, pump the rest into dex and stamina.
