    Have you guys seen the rewards for some of the covenants?
    Namely the fucking parasitic egg that replaces your head by eating half of the souls you get, or becoming a dragonoid that can fucking 1 hit level 30's with his fire breath?

    I want to know what is the deal with the
    Pendant. Apparently you give it to a boss at a specific time and you get a secret ending?

    the sequence breaking in world 4-1 where he goes over certain walls with clever rolling and glitchy collision, and 3-1 at the siege engine bridge thing... I had no idea you could do that!

    yeah, i knew the 3_1 siege engine was skippable in theory before that went up, but actually getting it done requires precision on immortal levels

    christ that siege engine was such a pain

    when I finally found my way around behind it and shut it off I got my ass handed to me by that black phantom

    ahh, memories!

    SHIPPED!

    I'm tempted to skip my kenpo class.

    Nah, that'd be bad. But after 8:00PM, it's on.

    Something that's surprised me recently with reading about peoples experiences of demons souls is that hardly anyone ever built their characters to block. I made my way through the entire game using block instead of dodge and it was just a shock to find out how uncommon that method of play was.

    i used both block and dodge evenly, but sometimes blocking aint worth the potentially lethal stun.

  • Options
    OghulkOghulk Tinychat Janitor TinychatRegistered User regular
    I used both for the most part

    sometimes dodge seemed a better choice for those wind up punches

    shield worked for the times I'd just need to block one or two hits and then ravage the enemy

    And now I'm stuck between going pyromancer for a sword and sorcery character, or knight for a paladin character. GUH

    was blocking effective against even the larger bosses with huge attacks? i played an agile magic/sword character, so i never really bothered with blocking beyond the start.

  • Options
    OghulkOghulk Tinychat Janitor TinychatRegistered User regular
    yeah, blocking was only useful to keep yourself from getting instagibbed from bosses

    My game shipped from a place an hour and a half from my house.

    I could have driven to the distribution center, picked it up, and driven back in three hours.

    ugh

    except that's not how distribution centers work, so this is a dumb observation on your part

    I think some places let you pick your stuff up from their distribution centers if you can get there

    I know Newegg does (only for certain things, though)

    a few might, but that's hardly normal
    most distribution centers are strictly set up just as shipping distro centers, not as locations customers can go to
    so yeah, still pretty silly to be complaining that you could have just driven to it and grabbed it because, well no you can't

    I don't see the value in driving over an hour to pick up a video game you'll get in the mail tomorrow

    You'll have the game indefinitely, what's the rush

    Do not have a cow, mortal.

    I blocked on some bosses for sure - hiding behind a bigass fire resistance shield and poking with a spear against Flamelurker comes to mind. Though even then it was a combination of the two, as some of his stuff I was simply not going to stand in front of.

    Warding and a maxed out weapon make Flamelurker a walk in the park

    Still took off 2/3rds of my health bar though

    The Dragon God was a pretty lame fight after that

    So can you play WITH people for this particular incarnation of the game? Say if I wanted to slay some demons with mah buddies?

    Yep Amazon just refunded my whole ninety nine cents for release day shipping because it is decidedly not release day

    Hey cockshits you might as well refund the other fifty nine dollars and ninety nine cents while you're at it because I'm going to Best Buy

    (except I can't because trying to cancel just gives me a generic error message. If I were feeling more conspiratorial I'd call that sleazy, but I'm not so instead fuck you)

    Online play still works the same as it did in Demon's Souls

    The whole process is a hassle if you want to specifically invite a friend

    Any verdict on whether to pick it up for 360 or PS3?

    I am getting it on 360 to try and coordinate with my fighting game peeps.

    PS3 apparently has slightly better lighting, but no other differences.

    Also, yeah, I don't think retailers anticipated demand. I cancelled my Amazon order and am getting it from Best Buy today.

    Amazon normally rocks and I still have them for my MvC fix.

    You don't understand, all copies of the game will self-destruct if I don't get to play it before midnight tonight
