Don't be such a squid, bro


That sounds awful, good luck on your vomit quest. Or congrats for your great calcium??

I'm in Korea, but on a US military base. Not sure when the hell I can buy this game. Considering I'm still an old-school hard copy kinda guy. Might have to buckle down and do a digital only purchase.

I would, but I'm currently on medicine that taxes my liver so alcohol is a no go.

Hey all,

I'll be streaming this game Tuesday Night at 10pm CST doing a Milk Shot Challenge.

I'm going into the game completely Blind.

-Everytime I die that's 2 shots of milk I drink.
-If I die consecutively without recovering my souls I have to drink 4 shots.
-If I get invaded and die that's 3 shots NPC or Player.
-Everytime I swear that's a shot.

Also I plan on giving away a free copy of the game for playstation 4 on Friday night. So tune in for sure if you want a shot at that and for some reason haven't ordered the game yet.

My local store's getting the game in just after lunch time and I can pick it up because I pre-ordered.

I've already been to the gym and done my shopping this morning though, so what the gently caress am I expected to do for the next couple hours.

trapped in custom title factory, send help

I read last week that Miracle and Sorcery scaling was hosed and that it's practically useless to put any serious investment in Faith or Int, is that still true or was it patched? My first character in every Souls game has been a heavy armour miracle-based paladin build that throws lightning everywhere and it would be a shame if that sucked.

They patched it and fixed the damage numbers, along with debuffing some honestly broken powerful Ultra GreatSword builds.

ngh, do I go with my tried and trusted Elite Knight build or finally break from tradition and go with a LCK build focused around knives. Wah.

Also, people learned a few important things about the system in the meantime, like how (mechanics spoilers I guess) int and faith have a softcap at 60 rather than 40, and lightning miracles scale sharply with how close you are to the enemy--melee range is nuts when you land it. Prepare to melee things in the early game, though.

Steam controller takes getting used to. Using the track pad cause there's no right stick and 20 hours into fallout 4 and I'm now able to aim without adjusting like crazy. Also havent had to change batteries yet.

You absolutely must customize the sensitivity and trackball settings for whatever game you're playing though. Once you get the gist of what all the settings are and how to tweak everything to your liking, it's easy to use.

Yeah, the adjust period is a bit of a hump to get over but ive never looked back since. On the battery life, I've just put my third set in since the start of december, and it's been getting used most days since then.

IF I COULD BE ANY KIND OF FLOWER I'D BE A BIG ANGRY COCK

I've given up on build dilemmas and I'm just going to be a dex-based pyromancer like I am every first run. I'm kind of worried my stats will end up spread really thin now that pyromancy scales with faith/int though

pyro scales with int and faith but the scaling is much less so than other magic. it's still useful at minimum requirements, as pyromancy alkways is

Does it still involve upgrading the pyromancy flame?

The hand axe in DS2 had a pretty decent moveset I thought, hopefully more of the same.

Technically for PC users, this game is only three hours away if you sleep for eight hours like I plan to.

I hope that frost magic is worthwhile, I want to make a character that uses a weapon infused with that.

Yes, but you can upgrade any catalyst so it's not that different. Plus it just uses titanite this time. That said, upgrading it only increases the scaling, it seems, so it's more important the more Int/Faith you have.

Question: if I want to do some magic plus melee and am just casual enough of a player to not want to do more than one character what stats/build options could I focus on that will allow me to enjoy early and late game?
