    It's Dark Souls related, no, it really is!

    It all makes sense now. Japan is nuts.

    Quick one : Should I upgrade my Long Bow +10 to a DarkMoon Bow or keep it as it is?

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.

    Do you have a high enough Faith stat to use it? If yes, then go for it, if not I wouldn't bother personally.

    edit: it's distinctly average unless you use it along with Moonlight Arrows (which are very expensive).

    Just rented Dark Souls for the week , exhilarating and frustrating often within the space of a few seconds , my only gripe is my experience within the online community ,who seem to be in most part unhelpful and can be very cruel at times , the games hard enough to get to grasps with as it is , but when you do I have to say its the best RPG I have played in a very long time ,
    Why dont people rate messages ? thus helping noobs out ,specially when humanity is in very short supply ?

    To be fair it's been out so long now, that most messages are ignored. I'd recommend playing offline for your first playthrough as most invaders/summonees will be massively overpowered.

    I made my first play through (101 hours!) completely offline and it's still one of the best games this gen.

    @puddleduck I still see other players about online, Ive had assistance just the once , rest of the time when Ive restored humanity Ive been attacked , just a gripe that the games hard enough without high level trolls invading noobs , your advice makes sense although I do like the online aspect of the game regardless of the risk , Fantastic game , brutal but very rewarding

    Oh you will, I still stick my summon sign down for a few hours when I get the TV for the night :p

    I would just recommend people playing it offline if they really want to try and stay in human form for a while and actually have the NPC invasions/summons. If you haven't BB glitched, the chances are any invader will be massively OP'ed... or that anyone you summon will be able to lay waste to the level while you try and keep up.

    @FuzzyDuck I have reverted to offline for now as the online mode was starting to spoil the game for me . Cant believe it wasnt a day one purchase . (kicks self )

    Cool, i found that while not playing online you loose the obvious bits, but playing offline meant the game felt so utterly desperate and solitary, really added to the atmosphere for me.

    I felt the same when i picked it up a few months ago, but the upshot of being late to the party was that the summer drought was jollily negated! :D

    As I head happily towards NG+ - Which bow is generally considered the best?

    If you're dexterity based, then black bow of Pharis is pretty awesome.

    @puddleduck - Would be nice to see you a bit more online. Maybe you have a monitor with hdmi input or something?

    Knight set (post patch) beats out Elite on key stats, presuming you're not going for an all-the-same cosplay approach.
    edit: the stats aren't *that* different for full cosplay but mixing and matching knight set would my preference over elite

    @sid92

    I do indeed. Shame I went and killed the Taurus demon after for a laugh, but I'll just make another one and we'll do the same again when I'm next online.

    @DD - I missed my final exams/coursework for my degree (was ill, so have uncapped resits), so at the moment can't really justify any lengthy game time until after the 24th August. Will be massively up for some co-op sessions with you then! Missed you buddy :D

    Will be about a bit on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday after coursework handing in, a and then gone until the 24th :p

    To be good, you gotta look good and feel good :cool:

    Yeah of course, just always the best place to do trading as you don't get attacked by the boss, and can't be invaded ;)

    Hope you get that load of work done with as little hassle as possible. I'm quite in the same position right now and need to keep the motivation high to get it done.
    :cool: May the awesomeness be strong in you. hah

    Cheers dude, because I was ill for the hand-in date I've actually done most of the big essay already (thank god they set the same questions) just need to redo the first piece of the year as that no longer counted and I can't resubmit the one I already handed in. Bastards. Still, working my way through a bit of Forster and Ibsen at the moment to refresh the mind.

    @sid92 - You wait until you can mix and match pieces from the giant's and the black iron set. Looks amazing and trumps both sets of knight armour by a long shot. Aesthetics play a big part in the online modes; it's often easy to tell who the experienced players are by their armour choices. Mixing armour is the key in Dark Souls because there is no bonus for wearing a complete set. Although the sign of a true player is a bag on the head, a loincloth and a big club :p

    If God said “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you,” to Mary - does that mean he loves bukkake?

    And "Dark Souls Question of the Day is : "

    What's the difference between loose and solid humanity?

    And how does the Dark Hand/shield type thing and NPCs factor into gathering humanity?

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.
