Also, random interview:

Interview: Kei Hirono talks masochism for Dark Souls - YouTube

I like the fact that he's wearing a Dark Souls t-shirt. He's not even a dev, just some random producer from Namco who I like to assume is always forced to dress that way...

Re: Dark Souls

I would be able to get pussy with a Demon's Souls t-shirt if I had one, but I don't know about anyone else. You have to be pretty good-looking in general and have a pretty nice greasy combover and horse dentures to be able to pull it off.

But to be serious, it's a gaming t-shirt and that's pretty tacky/pathetic in general. It shows people that you don't know how to dress, and I don't know about you, but that's not something I like to tell the opposite sex when I walk outside with my pimp strut in full effect. I've always loathed "gamer" clothing for this reason and the people who are stupid enough to condescend to buy it.

Re: Dark Souls

yea man, i know what you're talking about. and i just noticed another one of your flaws, bro. your cheeks are too fat. hit the gym once in a while, fatty cheeks. some cardio workouts would do you good. maybe a 7-day diet plan, yea?

and just wondering, what are your preferred brands? i only do gucci at the grocery stores, and ralph lauren or LV when im in my mack daddy mode at parties.

sadly though, v-agent wears gamer clothing and he had a chance with feral, which is not bad looking at all. way better than your girlfriend. you know, with the lagoon-esque pussy and the peach fuzz, but still noticeable from close-up goatee.

shame innit? i guess you gotta invest in a Kirby tee next time you drag your fat ass down to gamestop.

Re: Dark Souls

The hype train is already rollin', boys and girls. The glowing articles are starting to pour in, here's the latest from ign:

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/119/1196353p1.html

It's fitting that the first thing they mention is the multiplayer, as it is truly unique and amazing. That said, if multiplayer intimidates you, you don't have to play it and not doing so doesn't detract from the excellent single player campaign at all. I didn't play the MP in Demons Souls until I knew what the fuck I was doing; once I started I didn't wanna do anything else. It's a blast and I hope to see some of you on there.

On that note, why haven't you pre-ordered Dark Souls yet? This game can single handedly justify the purchase of whatever console you bought. These From Software fuckers know what they're doing, don't miss out this time...

I don't wanna watch any live streams for fear of ruining my early game immersion. I am, however, trolling the ever living fuck out the folks at gamespot by making Zelda/Dark Souls comparisons. Zelda fans are so blindly loyal it never gets old...

While trolling these middle-aged men who fervently support a game meant for 10 year olds, I came up with my first Dark Souls nic:

DIE_You_Fat_Kweer

Sometimes all it takes is getting in the right state of mind

Re: Dark Souls

So, with the game coming out tomorrow, I'll try to offer any noobs out there reading this a little advice when starting out.

Character creation: Have some fun with. Your head will be covered by a helmet most for most of the game, so taking an hour and half perfecting your character's face can seem like a waste of time. It's actually pretty cool, and if you fuck with the settings enough you can make a real beauty complete with ghost white skin and hollow bags under its eyes, like you look in real life. Give your character a trollish shit eating grin, or a grim frown to look more intimidating. All up to you.

Choosing your gender actually has some interesting consequences. In Demons Souls only male characters could wear a special set of heavy armor, whereas only females could wear a set of silver bracelets that increased your mana pool. I dunno what the difference in Dark Souls will be but there will be a legitimate reason to choose a female character.

Choosing your name is actually one of the most important parts of creating your character. What you're definitely gonna wanna do is pick something that will add to your opponents rage after you kill them. Getting hate mail right after you invade and kill some gimp is extremely satisfying and you want to encourage them to do so every way you can think of. I'm personally going with DIE_You_Fat_Kweer, as I mentioned earlier.


Choosing a Class: You'd think this is a big decision, but that's not really the case. All beginning characters start off with similar stats, the big difference is the starting gear. You're gonna want a ranged class who either uses a bow or spells. The reason for this is that melee combat is fucking hard and takes a lot of practice, whereas shooting an enemy down before it has a chance to cave your skull in makes early play MUCH easier. On top of that, melee weapons can be found all over the place; from fallen foes, hidden areas, or bought from a vendor. Finding a catalyst (needed to cast magic) and/or a bow can be extremely difficult, however. At least it was in Demons Souls.

The worst character to choose is the knight. When you see him on the list, he looks like the best choice because he's in thick ass armor and has a big sword. You'd think that would be a good thing but what nobody fucking tells you is that you can't speed roll/dodge with bulky ass armor on. What would you rather do, take less damage when hit, or avoid the shot altogether? Right.


General Advice: You're going to come across a LOT of different weapon types. Don't get too attached to one particular style. When you find a new weapon, equip it and try out all the different attacks until you're somewhat comfortable with it. You'll some some a lot less/more than others, but there will be numerous times that certain weapons are ineffective due to enemy type and/or your surrounding environment. For instance, if you find that you like to duel-hand a big ass pole arm that does massive damage, but find yourself in a cramped hallway against some nasty enemies, you won't even be able to swing your weapon properly without it hitting the fucking wall first. Some enemies, like skeletons, don't take much damage at all from slicing weapons like swords; you gotta bash their heads through their asses with a mace.

Armor isn't nearly as important as one would assume it would be. Wear something light until you level your strength up enough to where you can roll with the heavy shit on. Don't forget the aesthetics, either. There are tons of armor types that can all be mismatched into the baddest ass armor set you've ever seen! Don't let a few more armor points here or there cramp your style.


Multi-Player: What you gotta understand about the game is that the single player just exists to teach you how to play the game and collect your gear. It's a string of different scenarios showing the player what fighting styles to use in particular situations so that you can be an effective on-line killer. Playing multi-player consists of two choices: helping someone clear their game, or ruining their entire fucking day.

Helping: There are a few good reasons to help people. For starters, its the right thing to do. The game is hard as hell and everyone needs all the help they can get. Also, if you manage to help someone beat a boss, you get to keep all your hard-won souls, and you regain your body form. On top of all that, you'll usually get a nice message from the guy you helped, he will rate you as helpful/good, which is important because players see your rating before deciding if they wanna summon you to their world or wait for someone better. And you may even make a friend if things go well enough and you play well together.

Invading: This is the single best gameplay mechanic I've ever seen, hands down. People don't get to choose where they wanna get jacked or not, if they're playing on-line in body form, you can raid the motherfucker. The only limitation is your character's level; if you're level 165 you can raid a level 57. That would be too cheap considering all the advantages Invaders already have, such as the element of surprise and the fact monsters don't attack you. As an added incentive to raid, if you kill the host you get your body back. I mean what would you rather do, help some stranger trudge through a hard level for a few hours for a chance at defeating a boss to get your body back, or just jack some random shithead for his body? Even if you lose to the host, you've only really lost about five minutes of your time, and can just try raiding some other scumbag.


The Skinny: This is it; the game you've been waiting for. If you own either 360 or PS3 you have no excuse not to own this game and every poor chump you come across. The replay value is limitless; even after beating the Single player game you start again but with all your gear and levels, but the enemies are way harder. The reason you wanna do that is so you can find all the shit you need to fully upgrade your favorite weapons and armor, so when you invade someone you're as powerful as possible.

Don't drag your ass on this one, the last thing you wanna do is be late to party, giving every last gimp a head start on you. Fuck that.

Remember to keep your shield raised at all times when exploring new areas, you never know what the fuck is just around the corner and the game takes immense pleasure at spanking sloppy play.

If any of the non-tards here have a PS3 and wanna team up, lemme know. I'll help you out and give you items I don't want/need once I'm able.

Enjoy...

It's a decent game, although I think Skyrim will play better. I do like how you can write messages that can be read by other players, that's really bad ass.
