    Damn.

    Those snipers in Anor Londo get me every time.

    I must be the only person in the world who hasn't had any trouble with them. Rush them, and they practically leap off the ledge for you. A certain pair of area bosses, on the other hand...

    Not that it matters, since I've got myself stuck in Ariamis. and keep making stupid moves like letting crow demons jump on my face.

    God dammit, I just fell to the bottom of Sen's fortress and died with 20,000 souls.

    We're growing into a post-scarcity economy?

    I hadn't noticed the build a dyson sphere around the sun component of the stimulus package.

    Just completed the Painted World. Was really let down by the final boss.
    I was terrified when she went invisible, and she took a few swings at me, but I took them on my shield (+4 Knight's Shield) and took zero damage. Once I saw her footprints I poked her a few times with my lightning spear and she became visible, I circled and kept poking, and she died. Zero fucking damage to me.

    I feel cheated.

    Those crow demons, on the other hand, were nightmarish. They just should've made you fight four at once for the finale.

    the optional bosses are pretty bitchmade in general, gwyndolin has a great setting/feel and mechanics but it's still really easy; same goes for invisible dragon woman who walks at a snail's pace.

    not to be picky since it sounds like your first playthrough, but upgraded lightning spear makes everything easy, however.

    The real boss of the painted world is the circle well you can climb down that has a million skeleton wheels at the bottom.

    Fuck that thing.

    I honestly never had any trouble with those things. A good shield and high endurance makes them minor nuisances at best.

    Yeah, found them simple as well. Maybe I just have a high END, but I could take their whole impact on my shield.

    I didn't realise the spear was mega-easy mode, though. I've been playing the game blind - I don't even know how to make a weapon magical, or where these stat points should go for the most power. Currently a lvl 57 Pyro/lightning spear guy in Anor Londo, stats are: VIT 18, ATT 12, END 27, STR 35, DEX 16, RES 12, INT 12, FTH 6. Should I stop pumping STR?

    killing priscilla always makes me feel a little bad

    she doesn't even attack you first

  • NerdgasmicNerdgasmic __BANNED USERS regular
    lightning weapons and pyromancy don't scale at all with stats, just how much you upgrade them

    you want more health, more endurance, and more attunement so you can hold more spells

    Hahah yeah, as much as I love the mushroom men, it's rarely worth fighting them. Loot the ember and run for your life is generally the best strategy.

    It's her world, her crow-bitch things that try to eat your face, her bloated zombie things that try to set you on fire, and her wheel skeletons that try to mulch you.
    ust

    P.s. For those concerned about losing souls, don't sweat it. Souls don't matter. I once dumped 30 humanity and 300,000 souls into Bed of Chaos because I couldn't think of anything to spend them on and I just wanted to move on in the game.

    Just got past the snipers in Anor and found the bonfire.

    Fuck being human, though. I only ever go human in order to Kindle and I always get invaded within 10 seconds by some dickwad with a sword so long it has to be measured in AU. In Painted World I got invaded as I walked up the first set of stairs after the bonfire, and insta-killed. Just then in Anor I got invaded literally as I stepped away from the 2nd bonfire. Walked outside and was instantly set upon by an invader and a silver knight. That ain't cool.

    Where do I level up in Demon's Souls? I'm back at the Nexus but can't find where I should go. Am I supposed to finish 1-1 before I can do that?

    also, I find it hilarious that I was so excited to get 1200 souls and then I come into this thread and read about people losing 20,000 souls like its nothing.

    In the Nexus, there is a witch. Talk to her.

    The Maiden in Black appears in some various spots in the Nexus bottom floor, yes. However you can't level until you beat 1-1's boss, Phalanx.

    Edit: The real Demon's Souls starts here. Rating: +/-

    Make sure you've spoken to the monumental (the young child with the lamp in front of him at the top of the stairs) first, and then you can return to her and she will let you level up. She is the lady with the wax on her eyes.

  • Big ClassyBig Classy Registered User regular
    Dammit. I had an inkling it might be that.

    dat trailer...

    anyone think they'll ever release the PC content as DLC for consoles? this game is awesome and I'm willing to shell out for it again, but I'm not what you'd call a dedicated PC gamer and D3 + civ 5 expansion are coming down the pipe as well so I'd be interested in saving the cash.

    I got instant-killed by something in the depths.

    I think it was one of the lizards with the googly eyes. I was at 100% health and then suddenly I was dead and cursed. It looked like I turned to stone or something.

  • ScosglenScosglen Registered User regular
    GFWL is a shitty pill, but it becomes easier to swallow when you realize that they're probably doing bare minimum work to transplant the Xbox version of the game onto Windows, and it would probably be easier for them to use all the hooks that are already built into the game to play with Microsoft's servers than it would be to develop an entirely new solution. I would imagine it will also make it vastly easier to control cheaters trying to grief.

    The gas they burp pops up a poison-style bar, when it's full you turn to stone. I recommend not standing in them.

    yup, you're cursed (halved life bar, can't use humanity or kindle) until you find the specific item to break it. those lizards are fairly immobile though, now that you know what they do you can just circle them and stick them with pointy objects in relative safety.

    Oh, it doesn't just outright kill you? The more you know.

  • TorgaironTorgairon Registered User regular
    nah I'm just being incoherent, I definitely didn't mean to imply that curse doesn't kill you outright if the bar fills. all the effects I described are after the immediate death.

    hey if ye don't want dark souls to be on gfwl go sign this thing http://www.change.org/petitions/namco-bandai-and-from-software-release-dark-souls-pc-edition-without-games-for-windows-live

    either way i am excited for the pc port because i would really like to play this game. my laptop prooobably won't be able to stomach it but odds are more in favor of me getting a decent PC in the future than getting an xbox 360

    Yeeeeeah GFWL isn't the best choice ever, but it's not like you'll be inviting people to your game so as long as it just logs me in (which is has done recently with no troubles) it can sit in the background and net me a few more achievement points.

    Still rather have Steam.

    I've lost my 100% save of Arkham Asylum and another of Red Faction Guerrilla thanks to GFWL. It really is terrifying that they're using it. Fitting, really.

  • mere_immortalmere_immortal So tasty!Registered User regular
    Well that sounds less good.

    Speaking realistically though, could they really switch their chosen online service at this point? I imagine it's difficult not just from a technical standpoint but also from a business side too.
