As a fan of both, I never thought of it that way but I agree. That one devil king arena (?) part used to give me nightmares and I almost broke my OG Duke controller because of it.
I hope Nioh has that level of difficulty as well. DS games just aren't as difficult, despite made to be more punishing.
Edit: R&C is gonna be higher then DS3.PS4 only
yeah. Nobody cant tell me that these fuckers would be out of place in a souls game
