Do it like lobos, use what you see c'mon it'll be a challenge.

DS2 has the npc I hated the most in the series... That fucking guy with the heavy lance that runs away to hide between enemies when almost dead. Specially hated him in the cursed tower. Fuck that guy.

I'd do the lobos way if it was my job like it is his, i have enough playthroughs to do in order to catch up to his list anyways. I havent even done a SL1 run yet! shame


Managed to get the new aggression mod going with the item randomizer, and holy hell its hard. Apparently the aggression mod also pumps enemies up, feels like playing ng+ with low tier items and as far as i know the fucking ember to get up to +10 could be in the Kiln! I legit struggled killing the moonlight butterfly just now, i had to actually equip a wooden piece of crap shield for the magic block so that i could consistently get through the scatter shots without dying to it in 2 hits. I did pick up a moonlight greatsword which is fitting for my sorcerer starter class, and can be upgraded without having to bother with finding that damn ember.
The true dark souls starts here! It does actually get me as close as i could possibly get to a new playthrough, its way harder than anything ive done previously.

Velka's blessings upon me! I found her Rapier before O&S and even before sens fortress. Shit is pretty cash, especially considering i havent found the large ember yet so id be running around with either a fire weapon or a +5 weapon otherwise. Now im only praying for the depths key to drop because i dont want to reverse it down from blighttown.
Aggression mod is so much fun, at times it makes your life a living hell, but it does have its moments where it helps you trick enemies down holes etc to clean a path up quickly, Tomb of the giants for example benefits me at a couple of points where they aggro further away and helps me kill them in a more suitable spot. Also had a double KO with Pinwheel (that bastard is actually pesky when his hp isnt less than your own).

It keeps baffling me how much people love this game (me included of course), keep hearing about all the cuts and concept changes, time and budget limiting certain areas of it. Yet still it ended up such an imperfect masterpiece.

Just beat my first SL1 run, and i tried this skip out. Pretty damn convenient, im impressed how there are still stuff being discovered in best souls. Going to do some runs now playing starting classes as they are, only levling STR&DEX so that i dont have to bother with lightning infuse on them. Should be fun.

edit: Just did the skip without having placed the lord vessel, and realised that the yellow fogdoor is still suppose to be blocking me out from the firesage. Went all the way and killed bed of chaos without even having the lord vessel, which is very amusing to me for some reason.

Sens skip is pretty easy imo. I still struggle with duke skip though, and the royal woods skip is 2hard4me

Praise the sun, our hollows have returned'st.

I'll probably be semi active throughout the event, going to do a bunch of human playthroughs i believe, maybe do some summoning even.

Remastered announced, its made in DS3 engine afaik. This could change so much. Im almost more worried than excited. If they decide to make it with ds3 combat i'll probably just not buy it. But i wouldnt mind them finishing lost izalith and tomb of the giants etc, areas that were lacking.

Shit, didn't even think about that. They might actually do it sadly.

6 player online is confirmed, so there are changes already. It'll definitely be something to keep an eye on.

Stick jumping is an option in the remaster, dopeeeeee. Thats like the best thing ever. For whatever reason the old Dark souls prepare to die edition is being removen in favor of the remaster, a bit stupid but i guess they want the dollarydoos. Very stupid actually, in the case of mods not working on the remaster people that join late and are wanting to try some fucked up shit like enemy and items randomization may not have the chance to do so till updated versions drop. Either way, remaster hype. Lagstabs are still in, so pvp is still trash but eh, stick jumps is all i want all i need.

This will be the first souls game to have dedicated servers though grav, I'd like to think that will make a big difference for PvP, but you never really know with From.
I was too lazy to find the launcher from my downloads so instead I downloaded it everytime from the website when I wanted to play. At my primetime I owned close to 300 c-rpg launchers.

Oh im hoping all the online components have been improved, but i have my doubts. Its a different company doing the remaster, not From, probably on orders by namco for some extra moolah. I want it to be good, but i have my suspicions that there may be less passion behind it than one could wish for.
