Nice. I like this game, but is it just me or is this game more difficult than any Souls game? I'm really struggling with this one.

Personally in finding it easier than Souls,  it's easier to grind and out level areas.

I guess. Maybe Im playing it too much like I play Bloodborne or something. I might be missing something. The bosses are just brutal.



Personally speaking, I think initially it feels harder than the souls games but as you progress I almost want to say it might even be a little easier. I think this is in part due to the ease of "grinding" through sub missions and increasing your stats.

Many of the bosses I have beaten on my 1st or 2nd try and there is no doubt in my mind that it is due to this. I can't say the same for my encounter with the souls games as I vividly remember taking more attempts on their respective bosses.

This basically mirrors my opinion.

I had to grind a while before I beat that bat woman and now Im on this electric wolf thing. I might have to grind more.

That first one is ones of the hardest bosses I have ever faced, however I did not use Living weapon or any ki maneuvers really. After I figured the game out a bit, it became much easier then any launch Souls game.
