ALL solo). Plus if you're really having trouble you can just open your game to the public and let peeps join you just for the boss (I haven't done this yet but I'm sure it's possible).

Here is a video of me fighting The Unclean One. Took me a long time and lots of frustration, but once I got him in this round it felt amazing. I guess that's what really makes souls games popular is beating the bosses the first time.

Edit: I forgot to mention that difficulty can be balanced equipment and mods that best suit your playstyle or the boss. One reason the clip below is memorable for me is that I had been wearing a heavier armor set for a while up to that point and was struggling. Switched to a lighter set that allowed me to dodge more frequently, and changed my gun mods a few times until they were just right.


I've been playing a good bit lately and my experience has been similar to yours I think. I rolled one build that I had a really tough time with, tried another with the first one's mistakes in mind and am soloing everything so far.

It's probably the most fun I've had in a run and gun for ages. I've joined quite a few co-op games and that's some fast paced, pretty brutal fun too.

I'm only up to Groot (is there a better name for it?) so far, so I'll wait before tackling the new free dlc area.
