This is actually killing me now, which is in the spirit of the game, I guess.

Eight loving days. I'm going to have to go dark (lolz) on this thread until then I think.

Enough of this nonsense. You are an important mayor and this absurd contraption has wasted enough of your time.


In the last thread someone posted about stuff related to the pygmy.

Namely about how if you don't make any covenants, you can recruit some monstrous allies. Watching this IGN stream, they had to join a covenant in order for that first guy to teach them miracles. So my question to the guy who figured out the no covenant thing is, were you still able to get spells?

Actually I made the same covenant, and broke it as soon as I could, gives you some monterous (like you said) NPCs to help on boss battles. Made Bell 2 so much easier.

Have you looked into special game controllers? After some googling, this looks like a good fit for someone with one hand. It's expensive, but that's the norm for this sort of thing.

Only a few find the way, some don't recognize it when they do - some... don't ever want to.

Please tell me none of you who have played this did grinding like is going on in the IGN stream in this area.

Also is parrying a more viable option in Dark Souls? It was my favorite part of Demons Souls but there was hardly anywhere to use it.

There is absolutely no need to do what they are doing. I'm fairly certain they are doing it so they can get a certain unique weapon to make their lives a bit easier. You are going to shoot yourself when they get to that part because it is more boring than this farming.

It's probably going to spawn a number of black phantoms equal to the number of tokens you have, right at the start of the game.

I was going to ask if it wasn't possible to get some electronics savvy person to wire up break out switches for the left hand buttons. Something you could use a big toe to push. Actually, I bet blocking with my big toe would work better for me.

If anyone's watching the IGN stream, is the game actually that difficult or is she just poo poo? It looks like she's dying to tons of avoidable stuff but I dunno if thats just part and parcel of console games.

THIS CUSTOM TITLE WILL COME IN HANDY WHILE LURKING


Well after watching the ign grindstravaganza a bit I saw an interesting way you can get more humanity and estus.

Sometimes when you kill an enemy the soul "mist" that flwos out of them will be a color other than white. Black gives you humanity and gold gives you another estus charge.

I started playing Demon Souls after getting all hyped up for Dark. I really loved the game, despite not getting far into it. I'm kind of lost as for what I should be doing. I'm soul level 36 Knight (I think). Some of my equipment... Fluted Armor, Purple Flame Shield, Adjudicator's Shield, Spiked Shield, Quality Winged Spear +2, Broad Sword, Compound Long/Short Bow, Cling Ring, Thief's Ring, Regen Ring, and some resistance rings. Looks like I've cleared 1-1/2, 2-1, and 4-1. Pretty sure when I stopped I had some grand plan, but right now I have no real goal other than not dying. Someone want to give me a goal, like hunt down a critical piece of equipment I'm missing?

You can beat 3-1 and 5-1 for sure, though 5-1 can be a bit of a bitch what with the damaging swamp all around the enemy, that and the constant regeneration. The 3-1 boss isn't too terrible, though the invisible Black Phantom in that level is tough. I've only had the game for three weeks now, and have plowed through 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 3-1, 4-1 and 5-1. I basically got to the bosses on 2-2 and 3-2 already, so doors are open etc, but haven't been able to beat Flamelurker or Maneater yet. Just got Poison cloud, though, so maybe Maneater tonight.

That Giantbomb quicklook, as usual, was like a perfect cross-section of gameplay, minus multiplayer stuff. It was nice that they had somewhat at the helm who had played a lot of the original too. Seeing him piss off the dragon then run like a scared little whore was just special.

how looks the trumpet



So in anticipation for Dark Souls I finally finished Demon's Souls, after 60 hours and poo poo-tons of grinding (crafting weapons really became my passion, couldn't stop grindin' for ore). I've had this whole week off and this week accounts for probably 40 of those hours

Now I'm in NG+... and holy poo poo is it hard I'm back to getting slaughtered by lovely dreglings or whatever again. Managed to beat Phalanx on the first go, but even with my massive levels and weapons and spells it still took easily twice as long to beat as it did the first time, and felt substantially more dangerous.

From the looks of things, Dark Souls appears to *start* at that level of difficulty. Is that true, or am I over-estimating here?

Does anyone who was watching the IGN stream know what that weird enemy was? It was hard to see with the bad compression, but I thought it looked like a glowy white squid-thing with a crab claw.
