    I love the black knight sword

    You just gotta time the heavy attack while enemies are still running at you. It 1 hits serpent warriors

    Try 1 hitting them in NG+ with anything less than an ultra greatsword
    Sometimes I wish the game was still as easy as it was in NG, but you get used to not 1 hitting things anymore I guess. I'm about to go to NG++ anyway

    When August comes around, i'll be ready to buy the Ready to Die edition on PC. Wonder if Namco'll try to get it hosted on Steam?

    Also, if the game was easily moddable, and it was technically allowed, amazing things could be done (aside from a mod wherein Gwynvere is wearing a bikini).

    Only mods i can picture is people infinite rolling in giant gear with unlimited health and stam, wielding washing poles and Black knight great axes.
    Not sure how they are going to counter Modded saves with the Peer2Peer connection.

    Dark Souls hot coffee, with tonne of hot Wheel Skeleton on Necromancer action.

    Also that bikini mod might actually be one of the few things possible, I doubt it will support mods so texture swaps will probably be as far as it goes.

    Stop that.

    As someone who's been invaded in Sen's Fortress before, it's incredibly annoying. Sen's Fortress is already an irritating area with irritating traps and enemies, it really doesn't need some player showing up and making you restart the area for shits and giggles.
    Welcome to DarkSouls

    also it's hilarious to watch me kick someone, who is on the first bridge, all the way down to the Titanite Demons. If they survive they'll get a nice ass whoopin' by the demons, too.

    Whoever said that there was going to be a Black Dragon boss, I hope he appears in Ash Lake. And the Guardian of the Tomb should be in Gwyn's firstborn's tomb. Assuming the giant tower in Firelink is Gwyn's firstborn's tomb like ENB predicts.

    I'd reckon a 10 dollar DLC or so on the console. Make the PC release a better deal with the game and the DLC.

    I don't know how well Dark Souls would work on the 3DS. Maybe if they completely reworked it, but it takes super precise movements and super fast reflexes, and it seems kind of hard to integrate a touch-screen in a way that isn't tacky or a pain in the ass.
    The vast majority of good DS games don't use the touchscreen at all or for anything other than inventory management and/or maps. I would assume that in Dark Souls 3DS it would be the former, works well since you can't pause anyway.

    It could definitely work, you wouldn't even need to open up the menu in the first place; it could be on the lower screen.

    Same thing could apply for a Wii U version of Dark Souls, though they'd probably never do that due to perceptions of Wii being for casuals.

    Whenever I hear this song, I don't think the song is for the last boss, but for the end of the Era of Fire.

    Oh man. I just past the Anor londo archers and got in the building, but couldn't light the bonfire because I had a summon with me. So we continued on to the first silver knight then we got invaded. The invader took down my summon and I had me down to a straw of HP before I landed my last hit. Thank fuck.
    The summon MIGHT have been me, remember his name?

    Made a new PvP character.

    This time I started with a Sorcerer for the 3 attunements slots, and I'm rolling with Hidden Body, Chameleon, and Poison Mist.

    Poison mist is amazing. I haven't tried toxic mist yet, but I'm sure it's much deadlier (it also only has one use, unlike poison mist which as 3).

    Edited:

    I should also mention that I solo'd the 4 kings at level 35.

    Is that something to be proud of?

    Edited:

    God damnit. Every time I try to invade someone, I use my red eye orb and it says it's searching for a world to invade. And then nothing happens and I get invaded instead.

    I don't think I've successfully used Toxic on someone, yet. It does however make a very good get-away spell.

    I have also learned today that Hidden Body will stop homing souls from targeting you completely.

    Good job on the kings, if you do it without BB glitching then yes, that's certainly something to be proud of. I actually just made an SL35 darkwraith as well, and I restarted and bb glitched after I tried to kill them with a bandit's knife about 5 times. Don't think I've beaten them without havel's set to this date...

    Invading can be annoying because if you're invading someone as a darkwraith, that means that anyone else can invade you just as easily. It's still searching after "Searching for a world to invade..." disappears, so you don't have to re-use it until it says "Failed to invade.". A good strategy I use when I don't want to deal with other invaders while trying to invade is to keep an eye on your orb, as it greys out when you're being invaded. So when that happens, just quit to the title screen and reload the game.

    Looks like new areas to me :D

    Holy shit yes, I saw that gryphon guardian manticore whatever the fuck it is in the artbook and was sad that it wasn't in the game. Looks totally badass.

    Edited:

    Also it might just be me but that sword in the third picture doesn't look like something I've seen before. I don't think Astora's straight sword has a hilt like that.

    Edited:

    It actually does, nevermind

    Oh man that looks awesome. But shit, can't Manticores petrify people? Considering what every other form of petrification does in this game, we may have another boss that can inflict curse on our hands.

    Whee, killed a dragon down in the sewers with the help of some guy. Also killed an invader in like 5 seconds with the help of said guy.

    He was a nice fellow, messaged him afterwards.

    Sometimes this game is nice. And I say this before I go into Blighttown.

    I never proper had it, only played the demo for Dark Cloud 1, Have the second one which i love to bits. Although some people disagree.

    Anyway, Playing Demon Souls with a friend. So far not too much fail, the tower knight is down after a few attempts and i think we will soon be trying stonefang mine either today or tomorrow.

    Playing as a knight and not having to depend on soul arrow spam is pretty fun. Too bad i cant upgrade the armor...
