Bosses in the Dark Souls 2 are hard to take down. Some people give up after several deaths while others keep on pushing until they defeat their enemies. A good portion of those, who give up, go online to find a guide that will help them.
Some people find it hard to defeat the Giant Lord. This fight is very straightforward and easy as you have already defeated The Last Giant. Moves of the boss are completely the same as the boss you encounter at the beginning. Keep on attacking its legs and dodging the stomp attacks. It might take longer to defeat this giant than it took with the last one, but you will defeat it.
The Watcher and the Defender
It’s hard to take down these two bosses because you have to face them in a one on two battle. Both of these bosses have two basic fight patterns, the short combo of hits for a close range combat and a lunge attack when you go too far from them.
The Watcher is agile, while Defender hits harder. The best way to fight against them is to keep them both in sight. If one goes out of your line of view, then you have already lost the battle. You shouldn’t focus on one boss, but alter your focus between the two of them. Keep one boss out of the range of his melee attacks and strike the other once or twice.
Fall back and do the same with the other enemy. Keep at it until you defeat them. Be sure to kill them both in a short time frame. If you kill one, and the other is standing then, the other one might stand up. Plan out your fight to take both of them down in 30 seconds (time between them both fall. The primary tactic you will have to use is strafing. Keep on it throughout the fight and you will take both bosses down without losing health.
Nashandra may seem tough, but for a player who knows her moves, she isn’t anything serious. When the battle starts don’t charge this boss, let her come to you. Staying at the entrance will keep you safe from dark objects that throw curses when you stand near them.
This boss has two attack patterns, two horizontal swipes, and vertical attack. Keep on blocking (or evading) her attacks and retaliate with an attack or two between her patterns. If you pull back from her she will launch a projectile made from Darkness, so don’t do that.
When she loses around 50 percent of her health, Nashandra’s hand will become covered in Darkness. Her next attack is deadly so pull back and evade it. After that, she will once again summon objects that will damage you. Get to the other side of the room and wait for her to come. Repeat the original strategy until she dies. And there you have it, Nashandra’s defeat.
With the 21st century at hand, we might not yet be capable of conquering and exploring space, but it doesn’t stop us from imagining what that would look like. And the imagination is the key inspiration for these game developers that made sure to present us with some ideas on how space can look like and what we can do there. If you like space and science fiction, these games are a must-see for you.

Kerbal Space Program
To take a break from the space battles and conquest, we present you a surprising twist on the space games genre: the Kerbal.

Instead, you will be playing as an engineer attempting to send a rocket to space.

Since the first appearance of video games, people in the gaming industry was trying to improve the way video games are perceived. Game developers always had in mind what player want to see and experience while playing them or at least tried their best to understand gamers need. This made the progress of creating better and better games as well as consoles to play on. The first PlayStation console was released in 1994 by Sony, more than twenty years ago. If we look at what games looked like then and now we can notice the progress in the gaming industry.
How it used to be
There weren’t many games that were noticed back then, when every game was mostly 2D, with poor graphics but good story line. Gamers were used to that graphics back then and focused on the story while evaluating the game.
Games like Crash Bandicoot had a great storyline, where you follow the adventures of Crash as he ventures deeper in the Jungle trying to resolve problems that his creator and nemesis Doctor Neo Cortex has created. They were fun to play despite the fact that graphics was poor.
As game industry progressed and games improved their graphics and physic system, developer companies started focusing on bringing the best visuals in the game thus losing the quality of a story. This wasn’t the case with every game, but the fact is that a good story line started to disappear from games.
Nowadays there are games with stunning visual effects, but the less impressive storyline and that seems to be the direction in which game developers are going. There are certain game titles that had sequels that ruined their quality, and game developers were just trying to earn more money with them giving what we already saw with few or little changes.
Technology has evolved to that extent that every game that is released has amazing graphics but not every game of that sort is worth playing.
We hope to see the quality of older games storyline with modern graphics, and if companies in the gaming industry are really interested in what we have to say about modern games is to bring back the story and make games less linear. No one likes a game where you are stuck in one direction of where things are going. Gamers want freedom in movement as games are made to be fun. VR technology is amazing, and we sure hope to see some great game titles available on VR, where graphics aren’t as good as modern games on consoles and PC, but they are at least fun to play, and that is all that matters. How we as consumers perceive what games should be is important for the gaming industry and if developers are paying any attention to our suggestion we will soon start to enjoy games like we used to.
Whatever future gaming holds for our true games we hope that we will not be disappointed and still be able to enjoy a good storyline in the game.
