Jim, you should have used “get gud”,I’m offended ,UNSUBSCRIBE!
This is the Dark Souls of Comments.
ah! the tile game seems to be based on threes.
thats not a match 3 game thats a 2048 or threes style game
Sunny D is the Dark Souls of drinks
I smell a nitpick theatre about people calling something “the dark souls of”
I give this one… Pinwheel Ouch That’s low
“Pinwheel” lol golden
So the Dark Souls of Simulators will be a thing soon.
Sad thing is I’m starting to get into programming so I can make games. All of these (besides grail) really don’t take a lot of effort besides the animation. Maybe they built they’re own engines and I’m talking out my ass but otherwise damn.
dat soul to squeeze in the background though
A turn-based game where even turning takes a turn is a bit much for a turn-based strategy game.
Jim Sterling is the Dark Souls of YouTube.
Blah blah praise the sun, blah blah git gud, blah blah Priscilla is my waifu
salt and sanctuary is the real inspired of dark souls.
Get tasty stay itchy?
The Dark Souls of being the opposite of Dark Souls
I am the Dark Souls of cunts
Slashy Souls: the Dark Souls of shitty mobile games that have no relation to Dark Souls
Jim Sterling – complaining when he plays non AAA games and nitpicking about everything and Youtube. But when he’s obviously paid to show the same game over and over again, well THEN he’s satisfied.
Please Mr Jim Sir put the names of the games in the description. Thank You and thank God for You
its sad state for a company like namco when a indie company who made salt and sanctuary can make a better 2d dark souls than Namco and gamespot, even though they have all of the moneys.
Why is there always some ASS HAT the has to thumbs down every video :-/
The Dark Souls of pornos. What would that be like?
Still waiting for some cheeky fucks what think they’re the Zucker Brothers to make a shitty “parody” game calling itself “The Dark Souls of Dark Souls.”
I want the Dark Souls of Mahjong Solitaire
This is the Dark Souls of comment sections!
I have no idea what that even means.
The Dark Souls of Videogames Is Minecraft.
Roguelike Dark souls? Oblitus.
Why hate pinwheel. pinwheel has a nice design, nice music, and is in a interesting position in the lore. If any dark souls boss represents a low score it should be the carpadaemon
. . . Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the entire action bar of the first game all skill icons from Tales of Maj’Eyal? Because they look just like the skill icons from Tales of Maj’Eyal. Which, you know, I almost don’t inherently object to as placeholder stuff in someones alpha version… But if you’re still using someone else’s assets, maybe you shouldn’t be letting the public see it?
Super Salt and Sanctuary, or LA-MULANA are the 2D dark souls.
that tile game looks like a combination of Threes and Triple Town.
I’d quite like to be The Dark Souls Of Anything, Really. Got kind of a ring to it.
Games weren’t solely grey and black with the occasional orange. 0/10 – Too much colour
The only Dark Souls of something is Dark Souls, let’s face it.
Have you never heard of the 2048 game, it seems to be related to that, the tile one it is.
Sonic and the Black Knight is the Dark Souls of Sonic games.
Hi Jim. I’m a huge fan of your and I really like this series. I do have one major criticism I’d like to see you improve, however. The editing on the video needs to match what you’re talking about more often.
For example, for the first game you talk about beating the enemy and getting stuck in a waiting loop. I would like to see this while you’re talking about it, otherwise it’s just kind of confusing. Another example: at the end you’re telling us to check out Grail while showing us footage of the match 3 game. Again, very confusing. It’s an issue I’ve noticed for a lot of your Itch.io tasty videos. If you could just fix this these videos would be so much better.
Thanks for taking the time to read this if you actually are
If you have to say you’re the something of something you’re probably not the anything of anything.
God I’m so itchy right now!
I see what you did playing some “soul to squeeze” at the start there Jim
Hey Jim, you realize that the card game match 3 puzzle game thing is a complete ripoff of Triple Town for the most part right? Only difference it appears is graphics and it brings in the sliding aspect of 2048.
Man, your ratings are superb. The last game definitly deserves Pinwheel :-)
I’ve seen Grail before I think, maybe on Indie Impressions?
Why does he say skellington and not skeleton?
That matching game reminds me of Triple Town on mobile. You should check that one out Jim. I think you would enjoy that little game.
The third game seems to be a remake of triple town
if you haven’t already you should try salt and sanctuary it is literally 2-D dark souls
I would just like to take this time to say thanks for all your content :)
My penis is the dark souls of penises. Hard, a little too long and only fun with some jolly cooperation.
The way Jim shouted “or phrase” killed the pilgrim.
That match 3 game is literally 2048: Mason edition
Free Fall Trials looks ALOT like TripleTown. Look it up, Jim. Might help you get this one (mechanics look about the same)
Unit Z:The Dark Souls of Steam Greenlight
There needs to be a dark souls of dating sims.
DS3 should have used the tagline: It’s the Dark Souls of “it’s the Dark souls of” games.
Deadly Profits, the Dark Souls of Imminent Uprising AKA Digital Homicide AKA ECC AKA The Romine Brothers Trainwreck gaming.
I got a bad disease. Up from my brain is where I bleed…
So I guess calling things the dark souls of something for now reason is now the dark souls of memes
Grail’s colour scheme is supposed to resemble an original Gameboy game played on a Gameboy Color, I think — the default colouration for those was greenish for backgrounds, reddish for animated things.
Poor Pinwheel. He gets no love.
Am I the only one that thinks Threefold Trials is just a beefed-up 2048?
pinwheel, the ultimate low score.
Where I go I just don’t know, I got to, gotta, gotta take it slow. When I find my piece of mind, I’m gonna give you some of my good time
Is Jim a big fan of Nightmare Before Christmas? Because they are SkeleTONS not SkelINGtons.
Grael would be amazing on iOS and android
Rectal jalapeños are the dark souls of relaxing weekends.
Momodora reverie under the moonlight is the dark souls of pixel platformers. It has a alot of dark souls esk elements mixed in with smooth platforming.
dark souls sucks
Boglins are the Dark Souls of eBay
I’d go with “Pick of the Litter,” rather than “the week” or “the episode”
It’s almost like these people just compared stuff to Dark Souls when it had nothing to do with it at all… oh wait…
I was trying to enjoy Grail but I can’t get sword swing or shield blocking to work at all. I have pressed all mouse buttons and keyboard presses and nothing. :S
I guess Soul to Squeeze is the Dark Souls of Red Hot Chili Peppers songs.
Grail would be a great mobile game if it was longer. It’s kinda crazy that it isn’t.
The first time the person told me, what there are other games – I just shot a guy 7 times. 7 cocking times, alright? What a smelly piece of bull! Other Games? Blasphemy! What kind of world he thought we live in? Certainly not a world with more than just one game, that’s for sure. Well, bastard got what he deserved.
Also, Dark souls on 3ds sucks big time, ya nintendo pricks couldn’t handle the only game in the world. But let’s just wait and pray, what pachinko Dark Souls would be just as good as it was in the trailer. FuckNintendo, you pricks. Fucking pricks. PRICKS! PRIEEEAAAKS! Oh, and thank god for Jim Fucking Sterling son.
Soul to squeeze… nice touch.
Hi, Sleepless Temple dev here.
I just wanted to thank you Jim for your honest review. I dreaded this day and my heart stopped when I saw my game here. There was a lot of fair criticism but, to my surprise, it was all in the feedback loop without traversing into trashing game itself. While I knew you give credit where credit is due and you trash what deserve to be trashed, I was under impression that this game is worthless in this state. First release (v0.01) was rushed to get on time for The annual roguelike release party (ARRP) 2015, which was big mistake in retrospect. Thanks to hacky/dirty code and quick burnout – by pushing myself too much – I released v0.01a and v0.01b (which you were playing) before I stopped working on this. There are lessons to be learned from this, starting with, don’t write “heavily inspired by Dark Souls I, Dark Souls II and Demon Souls games.” in game description till you have something to prove on it. Also stating on the website that I stopped working on the project and stating *on top* how bare bones game is, would be the second lesson. The fact you liked turn-based premise confirmed my belief that basic idea is good and if I decide to get back to it I know I have something to build upon.
Anyway, just wanted to say that you really made my day, and gave me valuable feedback, thanks.
If all these are the dark souls of what ever they claim to be then I claim to be the dark souls of chubby white trailer trash.
Git gud stay ded.
Is the best to start with dark souls the original or 3? I don’t want to have dig my xbox 360 out of its shallow grave under the patio.
Dark Souls is the Dark Souls of video games.
But Jim, Pinwheel wasn’t all that bad. The only problem with it is that most players fight it late into the game. That boss can be pretty challenging if you fight him right after you get to Firelink Shrine. The mechanics of the fight are pretty well designed and would work well if the fight lasts for a bit. Also,he has a cool OST.
