Played a bit more. Went back to Cainhurst because obviously there was more to do. Except there wasn't really anything. Sure I put the crown on and suddenly a new section appeared and it was cool but I'm guessing this is another online faction thing which I don't give a crap about. Or is there more to this? I'm sure the lore is good. So I went back to the healing church tower bit to see if I could find a way past that door again. Nope. I did find something else though. I thought maybe the key might be below and that I'd somehow missed it when falling earlier on. But I spotted a door! Perhaps this will lead to the key? Nope. After dying more times then some boss fights trying to reach said door ( ) I found the hunters dream but in the real world. Gave the hair piece to the doll. She felt joy.
Then went on to the Nightmare Frontier again. Here I made the discovery that if you do a charge attack in the back of an enemy it stuns them. Now I dont think this was told to me. Maybe it was at the beginning. I dunno. Might have been handy. Anyway. I explored what I could of the place. But I couldnt really do much because the place was full of poison water which slowed me down and frankly could hardly tell where land was. A few times I ran towards what I thought was safe ground only for it not to be or that my character simple couldn't even actually get on. Then things were being thrown at me. I'll try and explore it better later. I was hoping to find a way of not getting poisoned but didn't. Like a kind of anti-lava ring but for poison water. Some weird thing did something weird and I lost nearly all my health. I then killed the thing. The thing had a beautiful voice. I found the obvious boss room and turned around and discovered the shortcut. Thank strawberry float I turned around. The boss, Amygaga, was........ well. I thought it was a mess. At first I thought....... oh strawberry float. Its one of those things! But the fight itself. It just seemed to be roll, hack and hope. It was so big and the attacks so large that it basically was impossible to see anything. I think it took me 4/5 goes. It seemed quite easy tbh but if it decided to hit me or jump on me I was effectively just guessing and hoping everything would be fine. The framerate plummeted at points. REALLY BADLY. It was like fighting the Bed of Bollocks mixed with the Hyrda from DS. Only without the puzzle part of the bollocks fight. I made a couple of attempts to find weak spots. Like the tail but that was just tougher. So were the legs for some reason despite not having the exoskeleton the tail had. So I just tried to hit the arms. Did that swing hit the arm? Yes/No. When it ripped its on arms off it was cool. But it would have been cooler if its health dropped over time and you just had to survive. That would have been a twist. Instead it just carried on being a guessing game. But only now you had to hope the arm you hit was still connected. I think. I'm sure sometimes I hit those arms it did damage. I dunno. I'll look back.
Think it says a lot that I didn't even know I'd killed it. Just one stray swing clipped it and that was that. Shortcut was brilliantly placed. I liked this area for its surrealness ans it make a really nice change but in all honesty it feels a bit tacked on.
I think the only place I can push forward to now is the building with the motion sensor light. I hope they don't have foxes like we have here because that could get really irritating.

Feck off. I love the skill involved in rolling about randomly hoping not to be hit by an attack happening off screen. As far as the game goes it was an ok fight. But if I'm honest I've not been that impressed with the boss fights in this so far. Only one has hit the lows of some of DS fights (Bob) but I don't think its had the highs either. Except maybe Mighty Lenin the King of Cainhurst. But even that guy decided to be a twat who could swing through walls. Gazza could have been but I found the persistent camera issues a real gooseberry fool.

Honestly I have no idea know. Its been ages since I've spoken to someone. Excluding talking windows/doors I think I've only met 2 people. The lady dressed like a crow/bird that I think attacked me in the Grand Cathedral after the blood moon happened. But I'm not sure it was her because I only spoke to her once and that was right at the very beginning. And then there is the blonde chap, who I've spoken to twice I think, he just seemed to want to tell me about some places I could ask about. Again this was ages ago. So maybe he said something. I dunno. Got enough guff to try and remember and item descriptions to pick through. If I've missed more interactions then its because its stupid. I got through DS and dealt with most of the NPC stuff ok. Solaire and the Onion Knight just turned up as I went along. I feel like I'm missing huge gaps in this. And I've found them really forgettable.

Thanks. I wouldn't usually give in but I've looked all over the place and I simply don't have a clue where to actually look. I'll go look there again.
Hexx wrote:I'm sorry I can't remember where exactly it is
Thats ok Hexxy. I'm sure its placed in a logical point in the game if you have found and read every detail the game gives you and you can remember everything and you write your own wiki as you play. Stopping for 10 mins every time you pick something up because the menu doesn't highlight anything new. I suspect its somewhere near the respawning crazy ladies and the laser Amygaga because thats the one point I can think off that maybe I didn't pick through as methodically as the rest. There was a really dark room but I didn't find the witch bringing them back so I didn't stay long.
Hexx wrote:I actually think the first boss (Father G?) was one of the best in the game.
He was second and yeah it was certainly one of the better ons. The Cleric Beast was first but the camera/lock on in that was strawberry floating dreadful. Beat it first time though. I've fought the Cleric Beast twice and beaten it twice.
If anyone's interested the Hunter Figma figure is coming out. And, because of the dark colour and armour, the ugly Figma joints are somewhat hidden so it doesn't look too garbage. It's only really a problem on the elbows.

Hexx wrote:What sort of Hunter are you? Weapons/Style etc?
Happy go lucky style...... Strength as the weapon I picked at the beginning had a higher strength stat. Used that weapon for nearly the whole game as I was expecting to find some but never did. I bought and now use the Kirkhammer though. When I'm forced to farm I quite enjoy using the hammer to smash really weak enemies for the fun of it. Gun is what ever pistol I selected at the beginning. Which seems fine when it decides to actually hit things.
