    About 20 quid I think I picked up my copy a week or so ago for 21.99 zavvi with siundtrack
  • Deleted user 16 August 2013 11:15:08
    Think it's still about 15 or 20 quid second hand. I got it when it was reduced in the g.o.d sale. Paid 8.99 then for it. Does it make a racket even if you install to hd?

    He'll have a twink set up, lots of armour and weaponry on a low sould level. You see that a fair bit, you just have to take your lumps.

    Bill - SL31 is too low to see me, and very low to be taking Sif down.

    And the Gargoyles are like the prototype 4K. Easy to deal with one, much harder to deal with two at once.

    @LeoliansBro In respect to capability my damage output is massive. Must be too low to summon though :-( I'm making it hard for myself by refusing a shield and armour!!!

    What would I need to be to see a lvl 51 summon? Don't want to level myself too far you see... I have a plan.

    How much is DS for the 360?
    You can get the Prepare to Die Edition for 16.85, but if you're really, amazingly, unbelievably not bothered about the DLC at all, you can save 86p and get the original for 15.99 (looks like the Day One edition).

    You can summon people within 10% or 10 levels of your current level, whichever is bigger.

    This game has totally sucked me in. It's one of those games that gets stuck
    in your head and you find yourself thinking about it while at work and
    stuff. I just love the atmosphere, and the exploration and I like that it
    gives you options and flexibility to develop your own strategies.
    It's so satisfying going back to an area which previously defeated you but
    now you can totally master it.

    I'm about level 20 and in the Undead Church. I'm mowing through most low
    level enemies easily now and even taking down knights with out too many
    problems.

    If anyone reads the 'Recently Abandoned Games' thread you'll know I hated
    this game at first and gave up on it several times. I'm glad I persevered
    but I have to say, I didn't really start enjoying it until about 6-7 hours
    in and I think the initial learning curve is a little too steep (I somehow
    missed or forgot quite a few of the game's mechanics from the tutorial
    section which probably didn't help) and I don't entirely believe that death
    is always due to player error.

    Any way, I'm happy to admit my first impressions were wrong!
    Very glad to hear it! Its great when it clicks. Welcome to being totally addicted to dark souls :)

    Nice one. I'll see how the 360 behaves first.

    @Bill - don't even know how you'd install it to hard drive?

    But to answer your question the fans spin up to level 3 after 20 mins just left alone, never mind with a disk in. Took it apart and its as clean as a whistle so fuck knows what's up with it.

    @rodney - the gargoyles are tricky when you're not used to them. Getting the first one killed quickly is paramount. And as others have said, once you chop its tail off it'll only take a few swings to kill it. Don't forget you can summan solaire, a friendly NPC just at the fog door to them (when you're in human form)

    And buffing your weapon with pine resin really helps

    Lvl 50 still struggling with Sid I think my great scythe is an issue as can't hit him unless I target
  • Deleted user 16 August 2013 12:11:45
    Scythe is great when you're under him, do your sweep attack, don't bother with the overhead ones.

    @quadfather Hmmm god knows, must just be a noisy bastard!

    @BillCityfingers - yeah. It never used to be though, but it is now. And if I ignore it and carry on using it, it will rrod on me till it's cooled down. This is why I've moved to ps3 more, as the 360 is unreliable really. It's one of the original launch ones, so surprised it's lasted this long to be honest

    Drake Sword has changed everything!

    Anyway, the lightning guy below the smith in Undead Parish... doable?

    @Tom_Servo - yes it is. Two choices really. 1 - run in guns blazing and hug his left armpit to avoid most of his melee attack (kudos to Leoliansbro for that one), or 2 - run past him into the forest and then line yourself up against the wall and time an arrow as he fires his lightning attack. Takes a while and a lot of arrows but it works.

    Drake sword is good at the start but be wary that it doesn't scale with any stats so will be outmatched by a normal upgraded weapon soon that does scale with strength or dex

    Do what LeoliansBro suggested and hug their left armpit to avoid most of the melee attacks. Or ranged. But that takes a while. Be wary that some of them have more hit points than others. You also need the rusted iron ring to move freely down there if you haven't got it already

    Finally battled my way to the top of Blighttown, only to find I don't have the key to open the door to the depths! DOH! :cry:
    must have been confused with my previous game.
    Steeling myself for a night of battling all the way down to the bottom again and then all the way up the Water wheel exit.

    Yup got that had to for the hydra my problem has been the second one keeps coming in and attacking me
  • Deleted user 18 August 2013 21:18:39
    So, I got back from 10 days holiday, full of cold and with a rotten throat infection, who beat LB's epic 4K challlenge? Anyone?

    I swear I was fit as a flea until I turned on Dark Souls...

    If a poorly Monday means being the 1st to beating the challenge I might take an interest still...

    @Ironlungs76 - I've not tried it yet. Considering I can't do pinwheel from the off, I've not got much chance doing 4k!

    I've got my own problems, haven't tried the epic quest yet.

    Or at least I had my own problems, but O&S are down and out and I did it properly, netting the Leo ring and all.

    Great Magic Weapon is a beast against them, I was only at 15 int with the Oolacile Catalyst but it damn near doubled my damage output.

    Her soul, which makes a vicious dex weapon, and her tail, which makes another.

    The tail is the more awesome IMO. Her soul weapon makes a double-edged sword look like a loofah.

    How much harder is NG++ compared with just NG+? I want all the cheevos for this game - just realised I need to get 3 souls of sif, and another from O&S - the one with the spear - to get all the soul weapons. Bit of a trek just for a few gamerpoints, I know, but what else have I got goin on?
