Panting like a pervert in a sauna. :lol:

Been meaning to get back to this, especially after watching H Bomberguy's videos on the Souls/Bloodbourne games. See if I get on with it better playing more aggressively like he suggests.

I'm going to have to give DS1 a replay soon, as well as play DS2 & 3 for the first time. I finished it around the time it came out but don't feel like I was able to properly get into it for reasons outside of the game. Being more familiar with the concept now, and with Bloodborne becoming one of my favourite games ever, hopefully it'll grab me more than it did back then.

That Limmy clip. :lol: I've had his streams on in the background while doing other stuff and the armour sounds as you roam about are oddly relaxing.

Still jogging along with this on Switch and enjoying it way more than I thought I would! :toot:

Got quite a few routes open to me at the moment so I've been pushing out in each direction and seeing how I go. Finally started exploring the New Londo Ruins after having out them off for a while because of the bloody ghosts needing you to be cursed to attack them. Eventually found a dude who sells an item to let you attack them for a while, only to then kill him by accident... Whoops! :lol:

I have completely rekindled a new love for the souls series

played a bit of ds:r doing a gimmick run and then tried out a randomiser which was kooky and fun

then figured Id retry ds2 and found some things about that I really like (amongst the shite parts) and even started bloodborne on the ps4 which Im coming to the conclusion is a god damn masterpiece

just setup demons souls on pc emulator and that seems to be working great so far too

Do you have the DS2 DLC? It's really, really good.

The areas in it are better than anything in the main game.

I've gone back to this for like the dozenth time, and started afresh. Made it further than I think I've ever managed before, beating the Taurus demon, and making it to the undead parish.

I even managed to beat the armoured boar, even if it only died of fire damage after it had already killed me, so I got no souls or loot for it. :x

But I'm having a shite time trying to progress here. I've not found a bonfire in the undead parish, yet, so I'm still restarting at undead burg every time, which means a run over the underside of the bridge to get to the parish every time, and I keep getting poisoned by rats, so I wind up using all my estus just to stave off the poison, and by the time I get to the parish proper, I've no health items left, and end up getting ruined by the baldur knights as you head up the ramparts there. Must have run that same stretch at least 20 times last night. :x

DO you want spoiler/help or happy to work at it yourself? Also what platform?

Happy to work at it myself, but I guess some general, non-spoilery tips would be useful. I've already been having a look back through this thread, as well. I might have also looked at a wiki and found a map of the parish so i at least know where the next bonfire is. I just got frustrated with constantly running the same stretch last night and not even knowing if I was going the right way to make progress.

Oh yeah, also playing the Prepare to Die edition on PC

Stopgap bonfire: there is a timing that will allow you to pass beneath the dragon to places anew

Balders: are you familiar with the parry mechanic?

Worst comes to worst and you are at an impasse lmk and Ill make a character and come and help

Remember you can just run past stuff if you want, you doing have to fight anything bar bosses.

My brother started playing this, made it past the Taurus Demon, and then promptly stopped playing it. It wasn't for him, he hated it.

Random story but I thought it was relevant. Some people just don't like how vague it is.

Don't enemies just follow you, though?

I probably need to look into the parry thing, I know the game introduced it, but I've not really used it, and forgotten exactly how it works. I'm finding the controls for some of the more complex moves a bit fiddly. There's a spear wielding soldier on the bridge, and it's clear you're supposed to kick him off the edge, but half the time when I try to kick, I end up swinging a normal sword attack instead. Might have to spend some time in undead burg farming souls and practicing moves.

I also can't seem to get the backstab move to work on the black knights, either, which I thought was supposed to just be context sensitive. Every time I've attacked one, I just end up doing a normal attack, and then getting btfo.

Ive had this for a while, I just can't get into it like I have done DS3 and BB. Its too slow and cumbersome for me. :( Got to blight town i think and I haven't been back to it since.

Fabian Delph is a banana split.
