i basically got a guided tour by a japanese player twice.

Unless you have a JP version, you can`t play with Japanese players. Been like this since the release of 1.04 patch in Japan.
oh i just assumed cause of his name and when i compared trophies his psn said he spoke japanese. i forgot about the patch.

i've been listening to the show since the first episode. you guys riff well and ask the right questions. i like when you talk about the games you're playing. i like that you had kimberly and liz on the show for a female perspective i think that's important. i hope you get more game reps on the show for interviews there was a weekend confirmed not too long ago that had a developer for a shooter mmo. while that's not really my bag i liked hearing the process of game design. awhile back, i can't remember the episode. you talked about what you'd like to see in an rpg in terms of setting and whatnot. i love those conversations, i know it's mostly opinion and can be a can of worms for show format. in my head i always like to imagine if i had the resource and ability to make my own game. what would it look, sound and play like? i think for that reason i liked the female character episode. i'm not super familiar with the names of character tropes so that was nice little bit of enlightenment. the chrono cross episode needs to happen. i know i've seen the guy's post on the boards but perhaps you could bring the "to the moon" folks on? keep up the good work.

this is the jrpg i'm most excited about. i've watched most of the videos and the only thing that i thought might turn me off is that some of the boss battles looked easy. i hope either i'm wrong or that they have difficulty settings.

so i've rung the second bell thanks to some phantoms. i was afraid to go to sen's fortress right away but i saw some soul sign right inside the door. i basically got a guided tour by a japanese player twice. (got knocked off the first bridge) he showed me quite a bit before i died again.

i got the official guide the other day. i got it so i wouldn't miss anything in blighttown but the map even on paper is confusing a bit. i vaguely know where the key to new londo is supposed to be but i have no clue how to get it. the maps sort of need to be colorized to show depth. is there something i'm missing?

The female undead merchant sells transient curses, and so long as you're not cursed for real the drop rate on them from ghosts is pretty high. If you want to play it safe then wait until you've found the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring, THEN go down there wearing that and the transient curses and you'll likely keep getting them to drop in pairs and thus never need to worry. If you want to know where that ring is, it's
Code:
in Sen's Fortress, past a pit/wall that can be filled/broken by the boulders.

yeah i bought all of hers, i got a little ahead of myself i think. i gotta go ring the second bell first.

well that sort of brings me to another question. i have two transient curses and i haven't really pushed far into new londo because of it. should i just get cursed somewhere or is there somewhere to buy a big stack transient curses?

One Transient Curse can last for a few couple of minutes which is enough time to advance in New Londo, besides if you equip the ring to get more loot that you can find in Sen's Fortress you will have a bunch of Transient Curse while killing the ghosts.

Just be sure to go with Pyromancy and a good shield there because the boss of that area is not easy. Also, If you can do rare weapons and shields with the blacksmith of Anor Londo I would recommend doing the Greatshield of Artorias and the Quelaag's Furysword before going to New Londo.

thanks for the advise. now i know exactly what i need to do.

I wasn't telling him not to because of that, but just because it's a difficult fight and he probably won't be able to win it at that time. Then again, I played a thief and I wasn't exactly the strongest character at the time.
i've been doing okay on boss fights i think i only took like three tries at most of the ones i've seen. about half of those i killed first try. i'm playing as a wanderer but all my upgrades are to be an all around kinda class. i started out thinking i'd play dexterity/faith build like demon's souls but i got my pyromancy stone fairly buffed now too.

hey folks, new to the boards. long time lurker of the site, probably since i read the demon souls review. anyway, i have a question involving the firelink shrine.

Code:
so i rescued that prick in the gold armor and he killed the firelink shrine maiden. i got the black eye stone but it doesn't work do i need humanity or something to use it?

You can save her once you reach Anor Londo. You use the black eye stone in the huge room right before the boss fight. I wouldn't recommend doing it until later because it's a difficult fight.

It doesn't matter, you won't lose souls/humanity/your body upon dying against him, so you may as well try right away and save it for later only if you're REALLY being creamed.
