  1. I've finally started playing DE (GOTY version) for the first time ever. I'll try this mod sometime but gonna play it straight first. Be interested if they tweak the AI cuz I've had several instances when enemies have been utterly, incredibly, unbelievably dumb. Also several times when they've totally pwned me (I'm still adjusting to line-of-sight stealth) but I won't mention those. No.
  2. At some point maybe I'll grow the cojones to buy and play this but man it looks grimdark intense.
  3. Only four I can think of: - Homeworld Battlefield 1942 Riven (what I played of it. Loved loved loved the atmosphere, hate switching puzzles) Dark Souls Just started playing Deus Ex for the first time ever though, so that should make up the quota once I get into it. EDIT: Miasmata. Only one of the most amazing games I've ever played and I completely forgot about it.

    Looks cool, especially as at first I thought she was holding a hammer. But on a second look, I don't think she is. Broken link?

    Yeah, I don't think my host was interested in being polite (no waving from him). The invader took me on first, then my host joined in, the invader started whacking on him, and well. You've been summoned. You got a job to do. I know there's loads of PvP etiquette, but really, if I was invading, I'd expect the invadee to assume the worst and do whatever they needed to do to kill me. If I wanted an honourable duel, I'd get the red soapstone and get invited.

    It happened again with another host with Seath, and a few times with the bell gargoyles. I think it is actually under the host's control as nothing I press makes any difference, so I'm wondering if the fight actually starts while the cutscene's taking place. (A quick google later: found this, which doesn't mention about when the fight starts, but it sounds like everyone on-line needs to press 'skip' to avoid the cutscene.) Oh I wish. Running past enemies hasn't been an option in any JC sessions so far. I always very carefully took out the clams one-by-one on my own runs, now I'm having to lea

    That sounds great! Gotta say, putting a summons down has been fun on the whole. Just had another really good jolly co-op session in the Crystal Cave - in about 5 summons, I had 3 deaths in the Seath fight (in one, he was down about 5% health when I got killed; the host had another summons with him, so I hope they finished him off), one death from falling off the bridge fighting the golem, and one victory. No invasions either, which was a bonus. There was one host who hadn't got to Seath before, and when we got there it triggered the boss cut scene. Being the JC noob that I am, I assumed thi

    Yay! Tomb of the Giants!!! No, really!!!!!! Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!etc Anyway, discovered I do have the shrug gesture (it was hidden away under the 'switch' command). 150± hours into the game and I'm still learning the basics. Oh oh and sir sir please sir - I've finally done some proper backstabs. Proper ones with the animation and kicking the bodies off the sword and everything. Only done em when creeping up on unaware peeps from behind, mind, and even then I'm on about 25% success rate. Didn't realise I needed to hit R1 (I've been R2'

    Aww...thanks. And thanks for the offer of help too (especially given your lack of fondness for online play). At the moment I'm not that bothered about beating Seath, but if that changes and I'm struggling, I may come begging for assistance. The main thing bothering me right now is that I don't seem to have the shrug gesture. No, really. If I keep hanging out at Duke's (which I wouldn't mind doing) and someone else calls on me who hasn't opened the shortcut or wants to go blue titanite slab hunting, I need that gesture. Went back to Petrus but he was too crippled with grief over his preci

    Er - is that an offer of jolly co-op?

    When I was playing my sorceror build in Anor Londo last night I got invaded. Fortunately, as I was descending into my usual panic, I noticed he bowed to me. I just about had it together enough to remember to bow back, and a minute later he bowed again as my screen faded to black. Which was, genuinely, cool. (To be fair, some of my previous invaders may have offered civilities before attacking but I would have been so busy soiling myself I may not have noticed.) Just done another summons from the Duke's bonfire where the shortcut hadn't been opened. I had absolutely no idea where to go, and

    And once more my Dark Souls world is turned on its head. After watching James from Gamefront's , I thought "Ah what the heck", went back to my original build and, blow me down, I fairly quickly got to the stage where it was taking me about two minutes to get from the bonfire to the clam's cave. (Getting past the first bridge golem was a pain, but after three deaths I lucked out on discovering how to cheese it)(I love it when you find out how to cheese a foe by running away from it). Had a spell of farming the clams and then getting killed by Seath, and I now have more twinkling titanite and

    As I've got enough work pressure on in RL at the mo, I've given up on the joyless trudge of the Crystal Caves and gone back to a new sorceror build that I started in a moment of utter frustration earlier during the Duke's Archives. Killed the Asylum Demon first time (with a dagger!), but physically I'm much weaker than I was on the previous playthrough and it's fun learning how to do more ranged attacks/cheesing, e.g. went back to Undead Asylum for the Rusted Iron Ring, and only got past the first black knight by luring him up to the main hall and going out to the bonfire area; the poor guy ju

    ??????? **types dukeskip into google** **watches two videos** Ah. OK. Yeah, 'finicky' seems apt. The guy's commentary on one of the videos said it took him two hours to nail it, so it'd probably take me longer to do it right than it would to go through the whole area anyway. I really didn't mind the prison area, but once you're back in the library you need flies' eyes to see where the next attack's coming from. I could spend a minute - a whole minute - trying to check out where everyone was, then go three steps up a staircase and find myself getting hammered from three directions at once

    That narrows it down to pretty much any enemy in the game (lol), but in the context (and from checking the wiki), I did guess who it was. Didn't notice much in the way of tentacles when we met, but getting stabbed by rivers of stabby crystals does that to a man's memory I find. So, Duke's Archives - how do I love thee? Let me count the ways - ***GREAT GAPING VOID OF SILENCE***(Batman) Definitely fell more into the tiresome grind category rather than enjoyable. I think I'm getting a touch of Dark Souls fatigue - got so fed up at one point I started a new game as a sorceror (largely inspire
