    so uh

    How do I kill these ghost reaper things?

    you gotta get an item that temporarily makes them vulnerable, which you can buy from a vendor in the sewers

    i did manage to take out the first boss last night without biting it (only barely)

    this was preceded by five minutes of me standing at the white light going AHHHH AHHH AHHH GONNA DIE AHHHHH

    Ghosts you can kill if you are cursed, or if you have a cursed weapon, or if you buy the temporary vulnerability thing.

    also nearly died at one of the first zombies because im still not used to the controls and managed to taunt + use the healing flask instead of attack

    The Quick Look on Giant Bomb is fantastic, I will buy this game.

    I should also really finish Demon's Souls but every time I walk away from that game my nerves are shot. Friggin Flameluker killed me about five times then I gave up.

    I started a Deprived character. I've never used the club in Demon Souls, but it's actually pretty alright. I'd say it's better than the mace.

    Gave up at the Taurus Demon last night, battery in my controller was running out and my wife wanted to watch Castle on the PS3.

    Absolutely loving it though.

    Tried the wanderer briefly, but was getting beat pretty bad. Switched to a warrior as it can take a bit more of a beating, and is still able to dodge-roll properly. Haven't tried spells/miracles at all yet.

    are pyromancers and sorcerers the only ones with spells? if so I may reroll as one of those and then bulk them up

    I'm having fun with the pyromancer.

    Oh, you have a shield that you actually use??? Guess I'm just gonna throw fire at you!

    Anyone can use spells, but if its anything like demons souls if you don't start as a pyromancer or sorcerer you will need to find the proper equipment to start casting spells, and probably someone to teach you your first spell.

    Clerics get miracles which are usually defensive in nature

    Except for God's Wrath which was probably one of the best offensive spells in the game

    I am a fucking champion at rolling myself off of cliffs.

    After having played so much Devil May Cry et al., this is going to take getting used to.

    I'm thinking of playing a cleric when I buy this. I like the idea of defensive spellcasting in a game like this.

    I'm currently a sorcerer, but i have no fucking idea how to build his stats

    He will probably end up being a trash character.

    Sorcerer here. Just like in Demon's Souls, the beginning is hell, but then it pays off in spades.

    I'm making him into a Dex build now. Spear/Bows. Broooken.

    You'll want Attunement for spell slots, Intelligence for spell power, Endurance for running away because you are fragile, and probably Strength or Dexterity for a melee weapon since you'll definitely have to fight hand-to-hand in some situations.

    I wonder why so many people are having issues with Amazon.

    How long ago did you order? Did you still get it in time to get the free CE upgrade? I just preordered it Saturday (no CE sadly) and it came in today.

    Yep, preordered a month in advance. CE get, and it's beautiful.

    I think i put like 1 or 2 points in vitality and resistance, for some reason

    is that bad

    nah, you're fine
    just remember that if you want to cast spells as your main damage thing to pump attunement for more spell slots and intellect or faith depending on if you're a sorcerous caster or a miracle caster

    Nah, you'll want to increase your vitality every so often anyways, since it's the only way you increase your HP pool without special items like rings, I believe. I'm not sure how worthwhile Resistance is, but it does increase your defense by 2 instead of 1 (which every other stat does).

    Yeah. I can't wait to get home and keep at it.

    I hope the game does well. Judging by my friends list, it might lol.

    There's this heavily armored dude with a mace right before the Taurus Demon that I need to have words with.

    I started this game yesterday and was pleased to find it had an equivalent to Demon's Souls "Gender" slider in the character creation.

    It's now called "Hormones" and I'm not sure which is more hilarious.


    The game itself is so very good, I started a thief first, because I love to backstab and riposte and all that. (I continue to baffle bahamut with how reliably I can parry attacks) I made a wanderer this morning and oh man curved swords are so fun the equivalent to kicking with other weapons is an attack where you slash and then do some acrobatic backfliping thing.

    Also I managed to jump down the well near the starting place. that was fun too.

    your attacks do more damage and you stop looking like a zombie, I think that's it.

    also, you can use humanity to upgrade campfires and get more flasks from them, also also your humanity level dictates which covenants you can join.

    well you can't "kindle" while you are hollowed, but I don't know what that means yet. I have speculated that you might be more susceptible to fire damage when hollowed, also.

    Sorcerer is working out wayyy better than hunter for early levels

    Took out the Taurus on the first attempt, and it didn't cost me a ton of souls in ammo!

    apparently you can spend humanity points to kindle, which is like upgrading the bonfire so it gives you more estus flasks
