I suggested a friend of mine to buy this game, he is a pretty good player but it is so much fun to watch him play the game. I went to him several times giving him a few hints and such.
He died to the mimic in Sen's Fortress, although he had some great luck, he gets really rare drops and he killed the Iron Golem so fast by throwing him down, I did not know that that was possible. At first I thought that it had glichted but it is a real animation.
Bottomless box was mostly used for Ps3.
Xbox had a program on the pc to make your own character with any limit of stats and all the equipment you would need.
They used a USB for a darksouls save and chucked it on the pc while using the program....So in a way the bottomless box is useless even if they left it in pc version.
Ps3 could do it aswell but more time consuming since you had to take out a laptop Hard drive instead of a plug in plug out usb in 10 seconds.
my worst death was this:
You know how you have to use the curses to fight the ghosts in New Londo Ruins? While on my New game+, I had taken the curse, but had to do something IRL. I just stayed on the ladder while I was away from the controller. When I come back, my curse had worn off, but I didn't notice. So, I go and try to fight some of the ghosts and end up getting damaged and unable to defend myself. I am now running away with my inventory up trying to get to the curse (I didn't have it in my Dpad thing). As you can imagine, I fall to my death.
Not so bad I guess, I can just go and get my souls/humanities back right? Maybe if I wasn't retarded.
On my way back I forget to apply the curse AGAIN and I AGAIN am running with the inventory up trying to get to the curse. Then, I fall again. There goes 90k souls and several humanity :(
i'm not sure why you guys store up and never use your souls/humanities
i always use them up unless i don't need to and even then i don't take unnecessary risks most of the time
Welp, there goes 8humanity and 44k souls to those londo archers.
jk i riposted their asses
FYI you can store small amounts of souls using dungpies. You can buy them for 200 souls and you can "sell" them to frampt for 200 souls.
Also a good reason to store up on souls is to save them for expensive bulk purchases like spell buying or simply so that if you are ever just short of being able to buy something you don't have to bother grinding.
Has there been any word of a pre-load? 8gb takes me about 10-18 hours to download depending on how moody my connection is. Would like to get it ready before the game is out.
No word yet.
Also just curious wouldn't it be possible to get permanently stuck in the abyss if you used that bonfire before you acquire the lordvessel. As it is possible to kill four kings before getting the lordvessel this should be possible.
Even if you got brought to the kiln you would be stuck in the kiln instead of the abyss not really changing the situation.
You can also use a Lloyd's Talisman around mimics and it'll turn them into regular chests. I'm not sure if it works if you've already attacked them though...
I'd rather kill them for the souls and the item in their chest.
What does avarice even mean? Greed? Hunger? Insatiable?
Does grinding L and R triggers when you're grappled help at all?
I've noticed a difference between doing it and not doing it, with the most notable sign being that my character is immediately on their feet once it ends and not flat on the ground.
I love how dark souls gives you a classic rpg feel in those kinds of things. I mean, "you gotta check the chest's chain!" Or "you gotta use divine weapons to kill the skeletons!" Really nostalgic stuff.
I just killed the asshole brigade (Smough and Orenstein or however you spell it) In one try
how the fuck
No harm aside from feeling kind of silly that you just thwacked an inanimate object as hard as you could, I mean.
3 more days and someone needs to get a mod to add "PC" to the title.
Controller at the ready, can't wait.
I hope GMG releases the keys soon I want to preload it or at least play it the same day it launches
I'll definitely record a video of me playing through to at least the Firelink Shrine with keyboard controls. Depending on how people like it, I might do a whole Let's Play.
Can someone explain how the fuck to parry on the PS3?
