I didn't want to spoil the experience, so for once I decided not to look up stuff on FFXIII, my bad haha. Well, at least the graphics are good, and Lightning is freakishly hot.

Regarding JRPGs for Wii, I heard good things about "The Last Story".

As far as Final Fantasy is concerned, I can pretty much tolerate everything up until 10, and that's it. And even 10 left a few things to be desired. Such a shame, this franchise really had something going for it at one time or another...

Anyone play Tribes: Ascend? I forgot to download that thing but I'm just curious how it's playing right now with current updates n' junk. I haven't played Quake live in a few days. I need to keep practicing!

So..new Skyrim DLC coming for 360 tomorrow, and I guess PC/PS3 shortly thereafter. 1600 MS points, so like..$10? 20? I forget the point values as I'm only on PSN these days.

Don't own the box anymore but sounds like you have to pay $20 for the points.

So they basically refuse to admit that they'll never do better but want to continue taking people's money for inferior games.

I picked up Lord of the Rings: War in the North for like $17 for the 360. I'm having fun playing it with my girlfriend, but parts of it are definitely buggy and feel rushed. With some more polish it would be a really solid hack-n-slash. It was worth the $17 though. That'll fill our co-op void until Borderlands 2 comes out.

So after I reached the first open grounds in FFXIII, and realized that it'll take ages of mindless grinding to proceed, I got Dark Souls and having lots of fun.
The atmosphere in this game is so rad, sometimes frightingly evil, sometimes like a romantic painting come to life, sometimes like a fairytale-dream.
Though I have to say, it is really hard, at least in solo-mode, since it gives you no clues of what to do at all. I don't understand how Shadowhunter said it was like games "back then" difficulty wise, Blade of Darkness was a breeze against this.

I was lucky enough to 'find' the new shotgun for Scout yesterday. It's so funny when you start off with it your like a skinny heavy lol. The speed meter fills up pretty damn fast, though. "Meet the Pyro" was hilarious but I bet lots of people are pissed that they didn't mentioned if it was a he/she/something else :) New game mode is pretty cool.

then you're a dumbfuck and you're not paying attention. the game gives you clues on what to do, it's not holding your hand. the only slightly confusing part is at the beginning when the dude tells you that the 2nd bell is "down" and plenty of people venture into the "wrong down". mechanically, BoD was harder than DkS since, among other things, only the amazon had the uber-roll, shields broke relatively quickly (especially at the beginning. and there's no way to repair them), and there was no magic there. plus, the traps in BoD (especially the ones "guarding" the rune pieces) make the ones in DkS look like a children's park

tl;dr: you're dumb

LoL at "mechanically".

Mechanical-wise Dead or Alive is harder than both of those games, way to prove a point.

Fact is, Dark Souls confronts you with lots of situations you have to run into without even remotely knowing what awaits you, and often it leaves you no other chance but to die or retreat. In BoD you could save at any point, which makes things vastly easier, obviously!
The bosses are extremely hard if you want to fight them fairly (as in not exploiting KI and just shooting arrows at them when they can't reach you, which is fucking lame).
Though I guess it depends on your specialisation, from what I've read pyromancy seems very powerful. I'm playing a pure melee knight (shield with halberd), which seems one of the tougher choices.

Also a question:
Did you manage to finish the game without grinding? With my build, I thought it was hopeless to proceed without an occasional grinding session (and I'm not even in the mid-game).

there's like... 4 bosses that are actually difficult. and one of them is pretty much all-luck (bed of chaos), one can be easily parried (won't spoil it), and one is pretty much a DPS race. the others are all relatively trivial and it's easy to learn their patterns and dodge pretty much everything. you just have to pay fucking attention. just like these "lots of situations without knowing what awaits you". there's maybe a handful of that stuff that is actually difficult (or even borderline unfair like the AL archers), everything else is either you being dumb and rushing in or making stupid mistakes because you're overconfident. and there's plenty of bonfires and shortcuts around so dying really isn't that much of an issue and save/load anywhere would make everything trivially easy. plus, rings of sacrifice. explore the goddamn world, learn the fucking basics of combat, read the goddamned item descriptions and listen to what NPCs have to say, and if you still think it's difficult you fucking suck and go grind to compensate for your lack of skill

what is KI? did you mean AI? because this isn't DeS where you could kill pretty much every boss with bow+arrows using glitches etc. when you enter a boss room there is no place where the boss can't reach you. ranged is OP when you "unlock" Logan with his uberspells and proper equipment and leveling and/or Quelana with her pyromancies, but bows and crossbows are pretty weak compared to "proper" meleeing (although a lightning avelyn + lightning bolts is a fearsome beast, as is the darkmoon bow + moonlight arrows, but those things are very expensive and late-game stuff)

pyro is powerful, yes. but it was nerfed in the patch. although magic in general is pretty OP (although nowhere near DeS levels) in PvE. and pyro can be used by anyone since it doesn't require any stat investment (other than Att for spell slots)

then you suck at the game. if you grind for anything other than some specific equipment drops, you suck. on my first character i only "grinded" when i reached the final area since that was the most popular duelling zone for PvP at the "standard" SL of 120-125. when i reached it i think i was somewhere in the 60ies. i also recently did a low lvl run (SL20 until after O&S, SL30 until the end) with plenty of equipment restrictions and other than the 4kings and the occasional stupid death or death by lock-on, it really wasn't hard.

That low level run sounds impressive, maybe I just have a shitty build, I don't know.
Maybe you could elaborate what was effective for you (not that I gonna change my tank)
I read that heavy classes are more difficult, anyway.

Also, it matters a lot if you look up stuff, or not (or play on or off, I play off), and I didn't really look up anything until I got cursed by those goddamn frogs two times (which is a hard gameplay element if you can't even reload).

Anyway, if you don't qualify this game as hard, I really wonder what games you actually do?

"KI" = Künstliche Intelligenz = "AI".

I did a lot of grinding in Dark Souls. That being said, it's one of my favorite games of all time.

I should probably get that DLC for it.

Yeah, already one of my favourites, too. It's not like I'm complaining that it's too hard. It's difficult and that's good. But most importantly, the feeling, the atmosphere is just gorgeous. I didn't feel so drawn into a game since very long.

It just makes you re-think how a game is played. I can't think of another game where dying is such a crucial part of the gameplay. The campfire saves and such require you to use such an intense level of strategy at points.

"KI" = Künstliche Intelligenz = "AI".
you misunderstand. i don't think this is easy or "not hard", but BoD was a harder game. no magic, fast roll only with the amazon, very limited healing. only save scumming made it potentially easier, but that's borderline cheating (or at least cheesing).

i remember i looked up a couple of things on my first playthrough, but i'll be damned if i remember what (iirc, it was how to get some specific items that i wanted for my first build [that i scrapped since it was kinda shitty] since some were covenant-specific or dropped only from certain enemies) but i didn't look at maps or boss/enemy strategies etc. i think when i reached the kiln i looked up for the most effective soul farming method, but then i figured out a better one by myself (and posted on the official forum about it). i played on and offline my first playthrough

effective strategies...
-learn to block properly (watch your stamina!),
-upgrade your weapon and shield first (plenty forget to do the latter),
-learn to parry,
-don't ever go over 50% EQ load but it's always better to have the "fast roll" (EQ<25%, there's 3 rings and a helm that help with that. one of them is widely considered OP/essential for PvP),
-stack as much poise as you can while keeping the previous in mind (for PvE, ~40 should be enough),
-always have a method for pulling enemies (a bow, xbow or some magic),
-don't try to optimize your first build for PvP (a mistake i made),
-don't grind/farm unless it's for upgrade materials/weapons,
-it's better to learn enemy attack patterns and learn their exact locations so you don't get swamped, having some poison arrows around is always good,
-buy the bottomless box for better inventory management,
-buy the smithboxes/repairbox asap,
-if you find a boss difficult, go online and put down your white sign to be summoned for cooping (it's also a good method to get some extra souls if you need to buy something), or if you're on PS3 i can perhaps lend a hand or give a few tips, or go to the wikidot forums
-always have with you a couple of items that heal ailments (curse, poison, toxic, bleed. have as many as you possibly can for poison and toxic)
and probably more that i'm forgetting...

Edit: See last line

i remember i looked up a couple of things on my first playthrough, but i'll be damned if i remember what (iirc, it was how to get some specific items that i wanted for my first build [that i scrapped since it was kinda shitty] since some were covenant-specific or dropped only from certain enemies) but i didn't look at maps or boss/enemy strategies etc. i think when i reached the kiln i looked up for the most effective soul farming method, but then i figured out a better one by myself (and posted on the official forum about it). i played on and offline my first playthrough

So you did actually grind? Because farming for souls is pretty much what grinding is in this game.

effective strategies...
-learn to block properly (watch your stamina!),

I'm not a noob man...

-upgrade your weapon and shield first (plenty forget to do the latter),

I upgraded all of my "elite knight armor" by now, but I actually wondered: What exactly does it mean to strengthen your shield? Does it mean attacks over a certain level will be blocked (otherwise not), or does it mean that you just need less stamina to block?

-learn to parry,

tried that shit out, but my knight is sloooow, I thought just kicking the enemy and then striking was more effective. Gotta have to give that one another chance though.

-don't ever go over 50% EQ load but it's always better to have the "fast roll" (EQ<25%, there's 3 rings and a helm that help with that. one of them is widely considered OP/essential for PvP),

And that's a thing you can't easily reach with either:
-exact knowledge of equip
-a fast-type char
-massively grinding for endurance (which would be the solution for "knight"; I am barely under the max weight limit, and I have to keep track of strength and movement too, for mastering halberd


-stack as much poise as you can while keeping the previous in mind (for PvE, ~40 should be enough),

I found some ring, which leads to 86 poise, so it should be good.

-always have a method for pulling enemies (a bow, xbow or some magic),

Didn't do that, but never had problems with regular enemies anyway. They can be easily pulled by just kiting them away

-don't try to optimize your first build for PvP (a mistake i made),

Offline anyway

-don't grind/farm unless it's for upgrade materials/weapons,

this is pretty much how I did, though I threw some souls away upgrading stuff I wouldn't use later on, but how would you now what kind of equip you'll eventually find without looking stuff up?

-it's better to learn enemy attack patterns and learn their exact locations so you don't get swamped, having some poison arrows around is always good,

I learned "magic-spear", or what it is called, was useful a few times, but for real enemies, I'll have to go melee anyway with my build.
Poisoned arrows sound good though.


-buy the bottomless box for better inventory management,

I have that. Can I even sell all the chunk at some point? Or do you even suggest switching full armor e.g., to apply different strategies towards a boss?

-buy the smithboxes/repairbox asap,

gotta do that, yet the sith isn't really expensive either

-if you find a boss difficult, go online and put down your white sign to be summoned for cooping (it's also a good method to get some extra souls if you need to buy something), or if you're on PS3 i can perhaps lend a hand or give a few tips, or go to the wikidot forums
-always have with you a couple of items that heal ailments (curse, poison, toxic, bleed. have as many as you possibly can for poison and toxic)
and probably more that i'm forgetting...
If there only was a way to avoid cure, the rest, I have plenty of.
Anyway, offline, as I said


Also, regarding BoD, IIRC, the game had a quick-save function?!?!? How would you save-scumm on that one?

do you actually know how to read? i previously said i grinded when i reached the final area of the game since it was the most active PvP area at the 120SL range. jesus fuck

upgrading your shield upgrades the stability. i.e. how much stamina it takes to block certain attacks. and then you're not a noob...

what has character speed to do with parrying? that's entirely up to your reflexes and timing

man, you suck at this game. keeping EQ<50% with decent armour an weapons is easy. and you're using a fucking 6.0 weight halberd, not one of the 18+ ultra weapons. you still haven't figured out that movement trumps defence? that endurance is the single most important stat? fast-type char? what's that even supposed to mean? fffuuuu. noob, indeed

86 is a bit over the top. 76 is the max you'll ever need and that's for PvP vs ultra weapons. for PvE keep it around 40 so either equip some lighter armour and keep the wolf ring, or get a more useful ring in that slot (havel or FaP which should be easily obtainable since you're at least in the depths from what i gather). edit: it seems you also haven't realized that your starting "regular" knight armour is better than the elite knight armour in almost every way, but most importantly defence&poise/weight (same poise, slightly less defences but lighter)

soul arrow? you just wasted souls and levels if you're not planning on going the magic route. although 14-15 Int isn't a bad thing to have

yes, you'll be able to sell crap at one point

avoiding curse is easy. frogs die super fast, they have only that cloud-attack that you see coming miles away. i have never been cursed in over 1000h of playing this game. oh, and keep your "active" humanity at 10

My bad

upgrading your shield upgrades the stability. i.e. how much stamina it takes to block certain attacks. and then you're not a noob...

And where exactly is this specified in the stats? Upgrading shield just means more physical/etc resistance, so I don't get how this would be obvious (though I pretty much thought so)

what has character speed to do with parrying? that's entirely up to your reflexes and timing

like I said, I have to give that another chance, to me it seemed more effective to just kick the enemies, where they will lose their stance immediately, and strike subsequently

man, you suck at this game. keeping EQ<50% with decent armour an weapons is easy. and you're using a fucking 6.0 weight halberd, not one of the 18+ ultra weapons. you still haven't figured out that movement trumps defence? that endurance is the single most important stat? fast-type char? what's that even supposed to mean? fffuuuu. noob, indeed

Yeah, good job looking up on this 18+ whatever gear.
Anyway, I want to use heavy armor and halberd on this build, because that's how I like it. Just using lighter equip is no option here, not for this char.
If I started anew, I could take in all the wiki-ressources etc. and build an imba pyromancer, but what would be the fun of that? I'm a heavy knight. Point.


86 is a bit over the top. 76 is the max you'll ever need and that's for PvP vs ultra weapons. for PvE keep it around 40 so either equip some lighter armour and keep the wolf ring, or get a more useful ring in that slot (havel or FaP which should be easily obtainable since you're at least in the depths from what i gather). edit: it seems you also haven't realized that your starting "regular" knight armour is better than the elite knight armour in almost every way, but most importantly defence&poise/weight (same poise, slightly less defences but lighter)

Heavy knight has heavy armor? But OK, I really didn't realize that, it said "elite" in front of it, and had better physical resistance, so I went for it.

soul arrow? you just wasted souls and levels if you're not planning on going the magic route. although 14-15 Int isn't a bad thing to have

why is that?

Why should I have points of "active" humanity?
