After seeing the bs that could happen with that fight with spam teleporting, I felt like I got really lucky. I only saw him teleport a few times, and I had Radagon down in no time. Then I spent ten minutes chasing the final boss around the giant arena. XD But at least it was beautiful to watch.

That’s not a Japanese thing. The vast majority of digital interfaces are bright, because the vast majority of use cases is in lit lighting. You can always tells the engineering pods in an open office because the lighting above them has been messed with.

What annoys me the most is it ignores your volume settings so even if you have the music down to like a 3 or 4 the main menu will always blast your ears at max volume for the first second then go back to your settings.

u/DarkSailor06 14d ago

It's been a decade now. They just copy paste the code on each game.

u/dardardarner 13d ago

At least the main menu music for DS2 isnt as loud and in your face as DS3's, and only plays once you press any button. DS3 theme just goes "fuck it, you didn't need your eardrums right?"

Fair, but I do want to take this rare opportunity to gush over the DS3 theme since you brought it up. It's absolutely phenomenal, and no game I've played has ever had a more perfect main theme.

u/GatoAnarquista 14d ago

It's good but other than the main theme and a few others they're too samey imo. Elden ring and Bloodborne have more variety.

4

u/twistedgwazi 13d ago

Yeah I totally disagree. Aside from Midir's theme, I didn't find that many themes in DS3 to stand out the way a lot of Elden Ring tracks do. ER is my favorite soundtrack in the series because it has SO many bangers:

Margit's theme, Godrick's theme (one of the best songs in the series), Rennala's theme, Radahn's theme (my personal favorite), Rykard's theme, Goldfrey, Morgott, Malenia, Fire Giant, Godskin Duo, Maliketh, Placidusax, Mohg, Godfrey, Radagon and Elden Beast, they're all genuinely amazing. And that's without a DLC, which historically has the best music in any of the games.

The worst part is, it doesn't have to be this way.

If a smaller studio can manage it, surely FromSoft could manage something if they really wanted.
