Ok. Dark Souls 2 is for me definately harder than DS1 😞 Currently I am at around 7 deaths per hour 😄 And I hope it gets better. I am still in the Forest area, and I think I'll spent some more time there 😄 And I do not know, but I really have feeling, that controls are more clunky than DS1 on PS3 😕

BL3 - "I really need to get myself a Mayhem-8 Yellowcake before the Event ends in less than two weeks. But first I need to get a M-4 Yellowcake so I can farm M-8 (don't care about M-10 really).

-----**farms some other mini-boss in M4 for a couple hours** 
-----"Darnit, I really need to get that Yellowcake..."

-----**farms another different mini-boss for a couple hours**
----"Pffft, I can't stand running through that Event Villa Mansion over and over (mostly it's a tad boring and completely time inefficient to do repeatedly)."

 

**Turns on Stardew Valley**

I wasn't gonna say anything, but since you brought it up, DS2 is easily the black sheep of all the Soulsborne games for me due to the horribly clunky controls/movement. Could never enjoy or get used to that game because of it.

Wait, there's a Mayhem 10 already?

Oh damn. I stopped playing when M3 was the highest.

Yeah, I’ve heard it was a black sheep among, but did not knew that controls were reason for it. Sometimes it works for me sometimes not. The character feels during some fights as less than 30 fps, but there is no graphics lag.

 

Anyway deeper into the forest where i’ve found one more spell, so it should be much better now.

I have successfully defeated the first boss The Lost Giant or what is his name. Thankfully because of Greater Soul Arrow. Would be pain in the ass to get him down with dagger... At least I got 10 points into Strength, so I can wield now a Hand Axe, mobs should be now easier to Defeat :)

Number 2 of any trilogy should always be the black sheep.  If 2 isn't the "weird" one than you're doing it wrong.

lmao - seeing that also reminded me of the fact that they really screwed with rolling in DS2 compared to DS1 and DS3, too...very bad iframes at low agility even at low weight.

To be honest, I thought the boss design in DS2 was really underwhelming, and beat most within 1-3 tries. Ugh, that game was just so forgettable compared to the other Soulsborne games.

You needed multiple tries to beat bosses in Dungeon Siege 2?

(also Dungeon Siege 2 was better than 1 😛 )

Civ6 is very Civilizationy.

Because of the way resources were distributed - there was hardly any iron on my starting continent - I built my first airport at the same time I trained my first knight. By the time the knight reached the front line to charge Viking crossbowmen, my privateer fleet was being refitted to submarines. I also couldn't get any oil (there was one oil resource on my continent). In the second war against the Vikings I grabbed their port with oil (I felt very US American, even though I was the Roman Merchant Republic at the time). But when I got the oil rig up and running my tech had advanced so far that I didn't need it anymore. Suddenly I needed Uranium.

Uranium held by my friends the Japanese (not trading for it), and my "It's Complicated" Egyptians (I swear, the way Cleopatra kept insulting me one turn to praise me the next, she had the hots for me). The Spanish (kept denouncing me since the early middle ages when Gandhi converted the Roman Republic to Hinduism) and Chinese (kept insulting me because I built more wonders) were faster than me in sending settlers to the two unclaimed uranium spots (though the Spanish, still using catapults and pikemen, didn't know what uranium was).

The Chinese made peace with the Egyptians and declared war on me alongside my backstabbing friends the French. That blew my uranium trade deal with the Chinese. They were followed by the Egyptians ("What did I do?" "If you loved me you wouldn't need to ask.") and the Spaniards, who really should have known better after their failed attempt to conquer Hong Kong.

I grabbed two small Chinese villages (using bomber jets, mech. infantry, machine gunners, and a balloon), which just happened to be their uranium mining operations, while my fleet blockaded Wuhan, where the Chinese army was embarking to return from their war with the Egyptians. 

Having secured access to all the game's resources I offered the Chinese peace. With the majority of their army a the bottom of the sea, and no more uranium to build their armor, they gladly accepted, sent me the last 10 tourists I needed and gave me cultural victory.

 

 

Overall, was rather meh, since a lot of the time I was waiting for the AI to move the countless units it had spammed across the world, just so I could click Next Turn once more.

I did not know that there were issues with controls on consoles. I played on PC and after DS1:PtD, DS2 seemed like a perfect port.

Also staying behind/under the boss would make the battle significantly easier. Maybe even using the NPC summon.

Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition. It somehow reminds me of Spiders' games more, than of Baldur's Gate. The first chapter seems to be quite combat-heavy and plot-light - I am to collect 4 escaped magical creatures in 4 city districts. The intellect devourer has been found and killed successfully. After wrecking havoc in "its" district.

Thanks, I am playing the game in offline mode and without summons. My own house rules for first playthrough 😛 I did my best to avoid all these year any spoilers on bossfights for this game, so I might use very bad strategies to defeat some of them 😛 We'll see how far will that bring me :)In DS1 I was able to down all the bosses this way, with the exception of Capra Demon, where after 20 or so corpseruns, I had to look it up on youtube, and the fight became a joke lol... And S&O, where I had to go online, and summon a helper. I was unable to beat them alone in first playthrough.

Second DS2 boss down. Only 2 and half minutes long fight, but took me 9 attempts to not get hit by that big halberd of his. I am still officially bad 😄

I imagine this is how my Hell will look like -- eternity of doing DS boss fights. Sometimes devils would grant me a reprieve with a pivot table or two in MS Excel on dependency between climate and agriculture in Faroe Islands, just so that going back to DS was more painful. ;(

Replaying TOW.  Good ****, doesn't get old.  Recommend replaying every 6 months or so until a sequel or spiritual successor comes out.

Playing as a solo character who focuses on Long Guns, Science, Engineering, and Medical and wearing armor with gadgets that beefs up my Dialogue skills.  Character is near unstoppable, even on Supernova, the only potential hazard is kinda slowish reloading speed so I gotta add Mods that increase magazine capacity in to finish most encounters w/o reloading.

Never did finish Disco Elysium, so am tackling that now.  Sure am buried in tasks to do, I am disappointed that blasting the scumbag kid ends the game though.  Or at least didn't get to see the bullet tear her chest apart.
