The Night is Dark and Full of Terrors

Exactly. Some people play games for challenge. I already play BR which alraedy very competitive, as its last man standing. I also has alraedy a stressful & chellenging job, not to mention all the iRL nonsense to deal with.I think it comes down to time and patience. Both of which I don't have.
lol. Why play it if you turn this s*** on? Jst go play Peppa Pig or something.What does the Assist Mode do?
The Assist Mode allows you to change a few settings that only impact your character, not the world around you, in order to help you tackle the challenges the way you prefer.
How to activate the Assist Mode?
When you start a New Game, you are asked if you want to enable it or not.
Note that if you do enable it, you lose the possibility to earn some trophies that are linked to the challenge.
You can enable/disable the Assist mode at anytime in the option settings.
You can change 4 aspects of the gameplay
- The Damage reduction.
- Keeping or not your Anima Essence after death.
- The Endurance regeneration Speed.
- The easy cooling system.
I might get it Sunday but I will be using assists.Okay, I played for about 1.5 hours. The game is not easy, at least at the start. Got my S kicked multiple times from the first boss until I use the cheese tactic.
Supposedly game get easier when you upgrade your gear & use musket and grenade, but they are consumable & at least not as freely available at start.
There is a stamina bar of sorts so you cannot block or dodge, or sprint all day.
Visually, It is pretty. Better than souls games & Elden ring for sure.
I confess I use assist mode, but only the not lost essence (aka souls) after death. Make death less annoying. There are other assists like reduce damage which I resist using.
