Another game that's frustrating me, though not to the extent of Dark Souls, is Arc the Lad II, which I actually feel is a huge step down from its predecessor, given the introduced inventory limit and over-plus-hour moments without being able to save the game (in a previous playthrough, the game froze on me without me being able to save during that time). That shit is unforgivable, and any developer that doesn't let players save their game anywhere, anytime should have their fucking game development degrees revoked.

It just makes me want to vomit when this game's countless apologists gush about how great it supposedly is while downplaying its serious flaws.

After taking all the other suggestions into account, if you're hitting loss after loss and not seeing an improvement, stop and play something else. Come back to the game the next day.

Sometimes that's all I've needed to get past fiendish Souls bosses.


edit: farming suggestions....have you gone after the three forest guardians past the door in Darkroot that opens via Artorias' seal? Those guys are pretty good for building souls quickly.
I'm aware of that technique, but leveling now costs me in the vicinity of 50000+ souls.

You know what? Fuck Sif, I'm trying the Catacombs now instead, and am actually having a somewhat easier time with the enemies aside from the fact that it's fucking easy to get lost given the shitty decision by the fucking Japs that developed this overrated piece of shit not to have in-game maps, which even decades-old titles such as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past fucking had. Lazy design, plain and simple.

By the way, would any of you have good farming techniques and locations for someone of my level?
35  Media / Game Journals / Re: Help Der Jermeister beat Dark Souls! on: April 04, 2016, 10:44:33 PM
A talisman? I'd advise ditching it - I can't imagine your miracles are too powerful with only 18 faith. Are you only using it for healing? Estus Flasks should be enough, I think. Using healing spells in boss battles rarely ends well anyway. Not sure if you're aware, but you can also upgrade your Estus. If you really want to use pyromancy or miracles, I'd pick one and stick with it.

I know about upgrading the Estus Flask, and only used Miracles for healing anyway, so I can live without them.

Thanks. By the way I forgot to mention I also have equipped that thing that lets you cast Miracles whatever it's called.

I decided to start a journal dedicated to my struggle against Dark Souls so that it's not hogging up space in this main forum:

Location: Darkroot Garden trying to fight the wolf boss, after beating the boss of the Painted World of whatever the fuck you call it.

My stats:

Level: 91
Vitality: 15
Attunement: 15
Endurance: 35
Strength: 43
Dexterity: 15
Resistance: 16
Intelligence: 16
Faith: 18

Equipment:

Right hand: Dragon Tooth / Pyromancy Flame
Left hand: Divine Knight Shield +5 / That thing that lets you cast Miracles, forgot its name.
Armor: Havel's Helm, Havel's Armor, Havel's Gauntlets, Havel's Leggings
Accessories: Ring of Steel Protection, Covetous Gold Serpent Ring

Any help would be appreciated, since I don't like giving up on games so I can actually review them on my review wiki with knowledge of a complete playthrough.

I've almost been absolutely unable to beat bosses without reverting to human form and possibly getting help from an in-game NPC fighter or another player summoned from near a bonfire point. I'm at about Level 83 or so, and I'm wearing Havel's equipment with the Dragon Tooth and a shield. Currently I'm trying to fight the wolf boss in the Darkroot Basin or wherever, although I almost always have trouble trying to heal in the middle of fights since enemies do nothing other than rape me to the point where I don't have an opportunity to heal without being slaughtered in the process. If someone could actually convince me to play in a different way and actually enjoy this overrated pile of scat, I'm definitely open to suggestions.

Still playing Dark Souls, and I'm pretty much back to my initial opinion on the game. The people who actually defend games like these sound like they're in abusive relationships, i.e. "It hurts, but I like it." Sorry, but having to rely on a guide and maps and getting no reward in the form of engaging story doesn't qualify as "rewarding" in my book.

April 28th is the Japanese release date for the PlayStation 3 version of the game, with the PlayStation 4 version in Japan coming out March 31 in Japan. Don't think an official American release date has been announced yet.

Finished Trails of Cold Steel this morning. Was enjoyable, but the endgame is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long, and somewhat made me beg for it to be over.
43  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: March 10, 2016, 10:12:40 PM
Beat The Legend of Legacy about eight hours shy of a hundred. Didn't really fully grasp the mechanisms and a certain trick that helped me in the absolute final boss (which involved using skills that nullify damage and allow character counterattacks), but I don't regret my experience.

Finished the android plot arc (which somewhat rips off Terminator) of Dragon Ball Z and am watching Cowboy Bebop. Sort of reminded of Firefly.

I beat Adventures of Mana and was overall impressed by the game.

Dark Souls - Kind of pissed at the game again since I've gotten cursed twice now by those fucking basilisks in the Depths, and had to trudge way the fuck across the seamless dungeon just to buy a cure. I'll be even more pissed if I lose the thousands of souls I accumulated before dying by those assholes.

Diablo III (PS4) - Near the end of Act III. Haven't had any major issues.

Dragon Quest VI (iOS) - Died once, but still enjoying it thus far.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel - I'm enjoying it, but I somewhat wish it would end sooner. Just reached the end of Chapter 5.

The Legend of Legacy - Still grinding for the final boss. I may give the fight another chance in the near future.
