Default DS3 and Cuphead

Funny that Cuphead is harder than soloing Dark Souls 3. I mean maybe I'll get better at it, but for now it's just crazy how punishing this game is. The bosses all seem to have about 8 stages and I can't get off the first island lol.

CUphead is amazing!!!! That's the most fun I've had on a game in a while. I enjoy the difficulty, honestly. It's a breath of fresh air. I'm on the fourth Inkwell Island world. I bet coop is much more difficult, what with the other player being in the way.

I'm on the third island playing Co-op which can be a bit difficult as a distraction but if a player loses all their lives they can take one from the other which is pretty good since you collectively start with 4 lives compared to 2 (or 6/8 depending on charms).

The game can definitely bounce between frustrating and satisfying. I love how you eventually figure out how each phase works and which items are more useful depending on what level you are on.

I'm sick of all these Dark Souls comparisons.

Man, that dragon boss and Mr Dice can kiss my ass. Those two, for me, have been the hardest fights so far.

Yeah, same here, to be honest. But then again everything gets compared to Souls nowadays. I think we've just got to learn to live with it.

Cuphead is fantastic though, I like it a lot.

No people need to realize where the game draws its inspiration from mechanically, which is games like Gradius (for the flying stages), Contra and Metal Slug, which are run and gun boss based shooters that are FAR harder than anything a souls game has to offer.

seriously when I seen a streamer I watch play this game the first word outta my mouth was: Contra?

But no any game these days seems to be compared to Souls when its even remotely difficult, but never realizing that there are games that are both older and harder.

Artistically though, games amazing.

Yeah, now when a game comes out and its hard, people will say this is the Dark Souls of (insert genre here). It wasn't even funny to begin with and now it got extremely old.

The Souls games are not even that hard.
