I actually just beat Dark Souls again, so I'm on my third run with my super-powered character.  Some of the boss fights on NG+ were just awful, and you basically had to cheese the crap out of them to survive.  I still love this game, but it can be more than a little frustrating at times.  I'll definitely give my final thoughts on the next show.

Glad you guys liked listening to Dave.  We certainly enjoyed having him on the show, and look forward to having him back!

I was actually just thinking about that.  I know John is in the middle of War of the North, so I'm sure we want to talk about that at some point.  Might have to look into another recording fairly soon...

Double Post!

Check out our new episode featuring an in-depth discussion of Dark Souls and The Old Republic beta!

Liking Arkham City quite a bit, but the controls are a little cumbersome and complicated.  I had a hard time gliding Batman through the AR training at first, and trying to remember how to use each gadget and device in his arsenal can be tricky.  Still liking it, but it isn't the friendliest interface around.

There should be a bonfire to close to the start of the swamp.  Run out from that corridor, and sort of head diagonally right towards an anthill-like structure.  Hope this helps!

To Yggdrasil:

The areas after Ceaseless Discharge (seriously, they needed to translate that a bit better) are essentially the last part of the game.  They feature the toughest enemies and bosses.  After ringing the two bells you should see the gates of Sen's Fortress open.  It's the area right above the first blacksmith in the Undead Parish.  Hope this helps!

If you have enough attunement and you have bought the spell twice then you can equip it twice.  Helps a bunch!

You need to run through the dragon's flames to reach a small staircase on the right hand side (where all of the enemies are roasted).  You can lower a ladder to create a shortcut and then explore the Undead Parish.  Happy hunting!

Pyromancy isn't based on a stat.  You improve the flame (given by the guy that you saved) just like a weapon.  Whether or not that leads to problems on a New Game+ run remains to be seen, but so far the damage is absolutely devastating! 
311  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: October 12, 2011, 11:09:36 PM
Made some major progress today!  For those who are having trouble, I suggest getting some pyromancy spells.  Seriously, these things are devastating.  Totally worth the investment.

It's hard because we're using Skype, so there's no reciprocity associated with talking face to face.  We try not to talk over each other, but it does happen from time to time.  Or, ya know, when John's wrong about something.

Killed the Four Kings thanks to some outside help.  I keep forgetting to turn human and find other players to help me.  There's a pretty dedicated community that specializes in killing bosses, and they are a godsend.  Unfortunately, I've had a lot of connection issues.  It's been pretty hard to get people into my world.  Lots of failed summons. 
314  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: October 12, 2011, 01:33:46 AM
I agree with Eusis.  Just got to the Four Kings boss fight, and I really have no clue how I'm ever going to be able to beat it.  Well, they wanted to make a game harder than Demon's Souls, and by God they did.  Just not sure if I even have the will to go on anymore...

You can earn humanity by helping other players, killing them, or by finding the resource (the rats under the dragon's bridge in the Undead Parish drop them pretty frequently).  You never need humanity, however.  You don't lose half of your health when you die or any of that crap.  Humanity helps you if you have it, but it doesn't directly hinder you if you don't.  I'm walking around with about 10 items worth of humanity just in case I get into trouble during a boss fight. 

Sen's Fortress is an awesome area.  It's very well balanced and rewards care and thought.  It was a great experience after the horror of Blight Town.
