the cut scenes mostly ruin it for me, they are shockingly bad and disruptive when switching back and forth to game play.
level design is good for the most part, reminds me of resistance 2 a bit going from swamplands to outer space.
i really enjoyed the first two


played a couple hours of DS last night.
undead berg is as amazing as i remembered it.

going back to DS1 after DS2, DS3 and BB is pretty wild.

i've certainly got accustomed to the formula as i'm steamrolling though encounters that were a pain originally, like black knights. 0-4 on drops from them however

nice hearing the bell so often as masses of new/returning players take down the gargoyles.
zero problems with any boss so far, up through darkroot garden. very curious how i fare against O&S down the road.

I totally forgot where I stopped playing this game but some recent footage is giving me the itch.
$40 not bad. What's the best character to play as?

Is this the game where you spam arrow the dragon tail to have it drop that sweet sword?

Yes, from the bottom right side of the bridge.

Everyone has their favorite, and they all work. I've always gravitated towards medium weight swords, light shields, and a heavy reliance on Bows. When I get back to this one though, I'm going to try a pure Faith build.

Yep. The Drake sword is kind of the easy button early on. I used it up until I was able to make the fire sword from the soul of the spider queen boss deep into the game.

For my first run, what are some recommended basics? Also, character build? I was thinking Knight or Pyromancer.

Thank you. Why pure Faith?

That's the name of it! It was pretty useful

I think that was what I ran as on the PS3. I only had 20ish hours on that build. My recent start was a Knight build. Trying to go through all the "advice" is a bit tricky because there's a lot. I think I might restart as a Pyro. I'm not far. I only started to check how it ran.

*Thumbs up for PC Port*
