Discuss what you're playing here now. Last time, we were discussing Dark Souls as played by Mamoulian War.
 

More Dark Souls for me. And Stray Demon went down after like 1 hour or so.

Sigh I really suck against some bosses. Demon’s Souls was much easier for me, because if you stacked on spices, you would never run out of spells. And my reflexes are pretty ****ty for going melee all the time.

Anyway, I have found new place to hate. Anor Londo and two archers guarding your progress on a tight way up the roofs with knockback arrows. One bad hit, and you fall down the roofs and “YOU HAVE DIED”.

*sighs*

More annoying than Blighttown...



Yeah, it's pretty much agreed upon that playing any sort of magic on your first playthrough for a Soulsborne game is "easy mode". The only game I'd recommend that for personally is Dark Souls 2, but that's just because that game controls like such hot garbage that I can't blame anyone for struggling with it. But hey, if that's what you need to enjoy the game, so be it.

Those crappy archers are infamous - the easiest way to deal with them is to just rush all the way up to the top, approach the one on the right and make him pull out his sword, and then start backing up (but not too much that he takes out his bow again) and then get him to fall off the edge when he tries to attack you. The first time I ever went through there, I did it without a problem...but the second time I went through, it took about 15-20 tries before I figured out what to do.


I'm playing Jurassic World Evolution, since I'm a weak man with no resistance to impulse buying vastly overpriced games myself.

Yeah I know, it's easier with magic, I am soon 40 years old, and my reflexes and eyes are getting slowly watered down :( Despite of that I enjoy Soulborne games a lot, but sometimes, melee is just to hard for me, and I have to overlevel some encounters to be able to proceed further. Some of them are easy as pie, on 1 or two tries, some of them are hell to kill for me :(

 

I have killed them with poison at the end, but somehow missed the Bonfire right behind them, so I almost get heart attack, after one of the Silver Knights left me with 10 HP and I was out of Estus. I had to use one Humanity to be able to go further and open the Big Doors to the main Bonfire.

Took a break from Dark Souls for a while, and looked back at StarCrawlers.

 

Developer was so kind to fix the bug, which I have encountered and reported to the dev, in the final bossfight, so was finally able to finish it. Very enjoyable game for me, despite few small bugs. Developer also provided new free update for the game, which added hacking to it, so there is big motivation for me to play the New Game + again in a near future :)

 

I just wish, there would be more developer, who are willing to fix some bugs even years after the released, but lot of games just end up even with gamebreaking bugs. The next game Juggernaut Games release, will be auto-buy for me. He deserves all the support!

IMO, even if you look up for today situation, the more ****ed up government or the more corrupt government, the easier it is to rise for ultra-right-wing nuts. And you have that kind of people, who admire Hitler (or very similar people), for what he has done, in non-white population as well.

Played and beat White Knight Chronicles and Epic Battle Fantasy 4 two days ago. Yesterday, I beat Chainsaw Warrior. I'm now playing White Knight Chronicles 2 and Aviary Attorney.

Why are there Nazis in shadowrun Hong Kong?

From Wikipedia

 

"Number 88 symbolizes fortune and good luck in Chinese culture, since the word 8 sounds similar to the word fā (发, which implies 发财, or wealth, in Mandarin or Cantonese). The number 8 is considered to be the luckiest number in Chinese culture, and prices in Chinese supermarkets often contain many 8s."

Aha! Thanks Sands protected from the sun's glare. That makes sense. Always interesting how things will have different meanings and be interpreted differently based on the observer's background.

I tried to learn parry and riposte on the Silver Knights at Anor Londo, but it show me even more how I am bad with the reflexes in this game. :D

Made 3 levels in an hour or so, and took a break going down under the Blighttown to try out kill Ceaseless Discharge. It was pretty easy fight, just needed to have some patientce to kill it. Then I made two levels trying to get all the items in his area, but at the end I made a mistake, and got killed before the last chest. Because I went almost out of arrows, I decided to try and run for the chest. I have used the sound dampening ring, and somehow, I was successful :p

Anyway, there is big orange portal, which does not want to open for me yet. Run back to Queelag’s sister and called it a day. I am going out of ideas, and I am somehow affraid to go for Smough and Ornstein. Almost no one plays on PS3 anymore, so hard to find summon.

I've always thought learning how to parry in Dark Souls was kind of a waste of time for the most part, especially since the netcode in PVP is so janky that it makes it super difficult to rely on even if you get really good at it. The knights (both silver and black) and one other enemy you haven't come across yet so I won't say, however, are probably the one big exception. However, it's easier just to fish for backstabs on both of them and not bother, :biggrin:.

I'm playing Tomb Raider Underworld, the last game before the series became Uncharted Lite.  Despite the occassional janky jumping mechanic, I really enjoy the puzzle-focused gameplay.  The combat I don't much care for, but at least it's not the focus of the game.

Yeah, this is the opposite from Japan and half that number, where number 4 is the linguistic equivalent of "death", so superstitiously, huge numbers of tall buildings lack a 4th floor, for instance, it's their #13, but much worse.

I played Choice of Robots a whole bunch over the weekend. Probably takes about two hours for the first, but then you can pump out replays on like 40 minutes.

I like what these guys are doing. I got kicked out of grad school, started up my own company in Alaska, lost it when the Chinese invaded, got arrested for trying to help a friend avoid the FBI, and built myself a robot wife.

Playing some MGS5 again. It's just so good. Really sucks how we got crappy Survive instead of a true coop mode for phantom pain. Ugh, if they just had spend their energy on that instead of something nobody asked for.

My first campaign in Xenonauts went pretty badly a few years back, and I stopped playing when I couldn't keep up with the UFO's. I've started a new game and it seems to be going much smoother. I just built my 3rd base and I'm starting to make plasma weapons, although my lasers are still pretty great.
