I was reading a discussion on the Dark Souls wiki about the grinding required to get items like that in Demon Souls. Some guy was saying that From Software wimped out on us by making certain titanite easier to get by having them in shops. He said the game was "easier" now. This prompted lots of other people to jump on his case about useless grinding for hours just for one item and I have to agree. Adding grinding like that into the game doesn't make it any harder. It just makes it more time consuming to get what you want. I'm happy they put twinkling titanite at blacksmiths, because I don't want to grind for it. It's a waste of game time, I think.

I agree. Both games have pretty stupid parts in where you have to do the exact same thing more than 20 times to get 1 item, yesterday I spent almost all day trying to get the stone from the black phantom skeleton with the Soulsucker and I didn't get it, worse of all if that there's people that took days for the Pure Bladestone to finally appear, that's ridiculous.

I would like to find another player and ask him if he/she has the stone and I can give him some rare weapons in exchange but the online in this game is random so that also go from pure luck. And I don't know if is me for never getting summoned or something but it seems that there's not much people left playing Demon's Souls online, but I might be wrong.

I never thought I was going to go back to play Demon's Souls so soon, but here I am. I'm trying to get the Pure Bladestone but this thing never appears... they should have put that item with a boss not as a random rare drop.

And when did that happen? And why? The most fun I got from the online part of the game when was with Japanese gamers. There are some pretty decent players from around the world too but dividing the community like that is not cool.

That last boss in Uncharted 2....

"You will not stand in the way of destiny!"

How many times I've heard that.

@Mesh: Ooh... I get it.

Should I be worried or not? :|

A few days ago I got an ad that said they were selling female pubic hair or some weird stuff like that (it was just text though, no images), it blew my mind and scared the shit out me at the same time. Why would anyone would buy that? :(

...in this case, I choose ignorance over knowledge.

If you buy Modern Warfare 3 early, Microsoft warns against playing online

I'm not interested in CoD but for you guys that are excited about this, the more you know and stuff.

Quick Look: Sonic Generations

Sonic returns, and he's brought his friend Sonic with him! Look at all that blast-from-the-past processing™.

This and the demo = Sold!

It feels so weird being interested in a Sonic game again, I really didn't expect this to be good in the first place so it was a pleasant surprise. :)

I read on gaf that the problem with the aiming is only on the singler-player, the multiplayer seems fine which is pretty weird. I haven't got the game yet so if anyone can explain this "problem" would be great just to know.

I just have the platinum of Uncharted 2 but that appears with 95% combined with the multiplayer trophies, the only game I have at 100% is Flower but it doesn't give you a platinum trophy for some reason.

But yeah, I really like unlocking these things if they are fun but the majority of achievements/trophies are about "do the same thing more than 10 times" or worse. What's the point? I'm never going to get the platinum in Demon's Souls for example for how much work it takes to get two stupid rings with the character tendency stuff, and don't forget that the game also has a world tendency system on top of it.

The idea of giving you a virtual/fake prize for doing something in a game is really bizarre really. Some developers have said in interviews that when they want to create a immersive experience there's always the problem with the achievements/trophies that pop-up out of nowhere and reminds you that you are playing a game ruining everything in the process.

Sometimes it works for some titles but most of the time is just a distraction and a really useless feature.

Not really news or anything but the cover of one the latest editions of Dengeki PlayStation has what might be a pretty big spoiler for the cover of the magazine. Square Enix also has the same image for you to download as a wallpaper in the official Japanese site of Type-0.

Spoiler or not I'm pleased to have heard that Type-0 is pretty much the Final Fantasy many people have been waiting for years, that alone reignite my interest for this game.

Dark Souls ships 1.5 million worldwide

I guess we are going to more souls in the future with this numbers. And I'm not saying that as a bad thing, Dark Souls kicked my ass but if From Software takes around three years to do another one everyone will be ready for more masochist-RPG action.
3705  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: New Devil May Cry, bitches. on: November 02, 2011, 08:55:11 PM
This game wouldn't be shat on so much if it wasn't being called a Devil May Cry game.

Exactly, this is the same thing that has been happening with the Silent Hill games since Origins. But a name sells more than an actually good product, just look at how Shadows of the Damned (and to some extension) Vanquish ended.
