Anyone trying to 100% LotF I’d recommended this list.

I kinda want to go play the original LotF now. Watching some videos and it feels quite different.

Looks like they're giving out the mats for the boss weapon nerf. Also didn't realize chunks can be farmed now.

Hopefully when I go back to the game it's better. Have they fixed framerate yet? It wasn't quite there last I played after the "fixed framerate" update.

Largely. There are still occasional stutters. Isn't that bad.

I can’t believe they have not addressed the target / lock on. I’ve trained myself to manually aim projectiles quite accurately. Often it just refuses to target mobs in range. And when you click target it follows the camera so you’re now facing the wrong way etc

They’ve addressed the lock on it seems.

“Developer Hexworks revealed the changes in a Reddit post, saying it's "delighted to share with you the next big optimization update, which also marks the start of our ongoing PvP/PvE balancing split, as well as the much requested improvements to the lock-on system and boss difficulty increases."

The boss overhaul comes as a result of player feedback and internal findings that many bosses in the game, which come at the core of Lords of the Fallen's Souls-like gameplay, "simply weren't posing enough of a challenge".

How you know your game was released way too soon:

Game Launches on October 13, 2023.
You release your 25th patch on November 17th, 2023.
25 patches in 36 days.
I mean, I'm impressed. But also, holy crap man.

I finally started up Elden Ring yesterday after waiting for the right combination of hardware and time off. Thanks to Flawless Widescreen (and not to From), it's running in 3440x1440 and anywhere from 75 to 120fps with everything (except motion blur and ambient occlusion), including ray tracing maxed. For two years or whatever it's been I've been curious about how Souls works with an open world, and now I am starting to get it. I suspect I'm going to need to keep a notebook nearby for things I want to come back to. I wish it had map marking with text like Valheim, but this is obviously a console-first game and thus the need for mods to enable ultrawide in 202X.

Man, I'd love to relive the first time playing ER.

I'm itching for a 3rd run but waiting for dlc

That makes me sad. That many patches, the person who gave it the green light should be fired. If they were content patches that'd be one thing

In retrospect considering an open world dark souls just sounds wrong. A large part of the charm was the interconnectedness of the world and zones. That doesn’t really exist in ER and definitely takes from the ingenuity of the world design for me. I’d still prefer the meat without the bread and just give me the actual real souls areas in a bunch. I’m still not understanding why this one is so highly revered. Everybody caving to the huge map craze.

Agreed, I'd prefer a proper DS4 in comparison.

All three DS's are awesome but have flaws. Be amazing to see them perfect the original formula.

I mean I'm not gonna replay ER 90 times but I thought it was a fine game. If nothing else, it was great to see what this design could look like when it was laid out macro instead of micro. For what it is, it won't be beaten.

Just now seeing this. Agree. Would love for them to go away from open world but with the sales data being what it is, I doubt it will happen.

So tempted to do a 3rd playthrough in prep for Shadow of the Erdtree ... really hoping it actually comes out next month!

I wouldn't believe any of the rumors. If it was coming out that soon, they would have announced something already. There is no way they will shadow drop the DLC. They want to capitalize on sales for it. Shadow dropping it makes no sense.
