    I'll add you when I get on this later buddy, GT: ChaosEngine83, got a lvl.129 Mage pawn so not sure if that's overpowered for your game :)

    Think I added ardamillo (GT: ardlive) yesterday too, so just a heads up to him too.

    Yeah TenderChicken (awesome username) you can add me as well (Abueloshika) but Bokur is now 13something. Get Orenda and Bokur in the same team and the game will complete itself!

    Out of interest Rod, what was your approach for the final boss as a Mystic Knight?

    Just picked up Dark Arisen after having a read of a review and watching a few quick gameplay videos.
    I do enjoy hack and slash, fantasy and killing big beaties so I'm hoping I'll get into it.
    From what I have read the original game takes a little bit to start getting into so I shall keep that in mind.

    Quite looking forward to starting it.

    Well Shika, it's like this, run the fuck away and let the pawns handle him :) ha

    I just tried to keep behind him as much as possible and just waded in with a few hits here and there plus I've got a power move called Tusk Toss[:D] that hits hard in an upward arc. I'm using the Holy imbued mace thingy that I got from the Ur-Dragon, hopefully there's something new and more powerful in Bitterblack to replace that eventually as Orenda has all the tasty stuff for now!

    Other than that I only had a few chances for a quick few blasts of Great Cannon & Stone Forest, he moves so much and spams magic like a complete nutter - there were times Kyrk got knocked over and couldn't stand up again for a good minute he was hit with one attack after the bloody other!

    Bokur and a lvl.134 japanese player Strider pawn called Alice, who I picked up in the rift, were crawling all over him as best they could and Orenda was almost permanently throwing round healing spells! That boss was a seriously tough mo-fo, I hate to think of what is now down there based on your previous post of going back down there.

    I managed to squeeze a few hours into this over the weekend - I'm very, very impressed. It seems to combine Monster Hunter, Dark Souls and Skyrim and it pulls it off brilliantly. I'm only about level 15 and just beginning to get a feel for the game, I started off as a strider and I'm loving the combat. It just seems to work so well; the Shadow of Colossus-inspired enemy scaling is brilliant.

    I've only got a few friends with the game on my friends list, so if anybody would like me to use their pawn/would like to use mine, feel free to add me on 360: Tenderchicken1.
    Feel free to add me - Chipworm.

    My pawn is level 49 and called Biscuit.

    @L_Franko

    It's an awesome game! It does start slowly, but it helps you to learn the ropes and once you hit the main city of Gran Soren not far into the game, it opens up all kinds of options for character development with occupations, skills, pawns, items, weapons and of course quests. I would add that the combat is a lot more intricate than merely 'hack&slash', there's loads of skill choices to make use of in battles depending on occupation.

    Some of the battles against bigger foes are quite epic and it's awesome that you can leap up and grab onto/crawl all over them, though a bit worrying if something like a Griffin decides to fly miles up in the sky with your stamina draining(that stat allowing you to hold on...till it runs out). Someone on the last page mentioned it was a bit like Ray Harryhausen monster movies at times and I really like that analogy :).

    There's nothing more worrying earlier on in the game than wandering out into the wilds on a quest or simply exploring, you start to see the sun come down and nervously break out your lantern and pray that none of the creatures that prowl at night come looking for you in the near pitch black...

    Excellent, your positive write up has made me look forward to getting started even more. Maybe I'll finish work a little earlier today.

    Oh God, I just got to the Dragon & Lich combo & it appears to be utterly, utterly impossible.

    My pawns all seem to get insta-killed leaving me on my own, unable to do anything, & inevitably dying horribly... I love it!

    Even more pant shittingly shitty, do it in just your characters undergarments with a single throwing rock for a weapon. "Soaked to the bone..", "Watch out for that puddle sire! Oh....:confused:"

    @Rodriguez Accepted FR thanks.

    Just realised I can't use DA pawns as I'm still on the original game. Now I'm even more tempted to double dip, maybe for NG+!

    That reminds me actually, I need to change Bokur's behaviour to Aggressive tonight.

    Rod, have you seen his new weapon yet? :p Also, I actualyl have a Bitterblack mace if you want it. I don't know if you can trade Bitterblack weapons but you're welcome to it.

    @Shikasama

    I went to collect Bokur last night after the boss fight and this was after you mentioned his occupation change and funky new weapon, but he hadn't changed??

    Oooh, that Mace sounds nice (please be absolutely sure you won't eventually need it though - I've got 4 Moonbeam stones to go open those doors so may get lucky!?) Plus I'd presumably have to change Orenda's occupation temporarily for her to accept it (if it can be traded at all)?

    I was also going to mention that you can also duplicate some Bitterblack materials at the Black Cat in Gran Soren, so that's handy to know too! Give me a shout if there's something you need and I'll see if I any of it!

    Heh, no problem! Dark Arisen is going fairly cheap in most places and is worth it for the expansion alone, you can flog your original copy too so win-win!

    Yeah, Bitterblack is quite a strikingly beautiful place at times, there's some lovely blue night skies that shine through gaps in crumbling ruins with the odd sad tree lingering there, it's quite a juxtaposition considering the horrors that await in there.

    Sometimes it's nice to just stand around and admire the areas, wondering if something truly terrifying and monstrous might just be standing behind you...

    @Rodriguez Hmm, how strange. he has a super duper weapon that I wanted to show off :( Pretty bitchin armour as well, he has the full immortal set now.

    I fear I misled you, what I thought was a mace is actually a 2 handed beat stick :(

    Not a problem, I think I got two of the same big Warrior class weapons from Bitterblack yesterday.

    Finally received this from Amazon today. When my daughter and wife go to bed later I'll be all over this. If anyone has it on PS3 my ID is Telminator-2 and my pawn is a strider named Esculas, currently about level 30ish. I've not played it in a couple of months; I got it for Christmas but sold it when I heard Dark Arisen was coming and included the vanilla game in full.

    I seem to be having lantern problems. It runs out so I put oil in it but it doesn't re light. Am I being a dumbass? Probably.

    Um, have you tried putting it away, waiting a minute or two and equipping it again? The lantern isn't going out because it's wet is it?

    So I am still playing this in between fire emblem. I'm still unsure if I like it. I keep getting owned but i'm going to change class from warrior to mystic knight, see if I like that play style.

    What did they do to the likeably awful J-rock title song? :( I genuinely thought that was a good tune, if you stripped away the cheese and the lyrics. An orchestral version would have been great.

    God knows. I need a magic lantern :)

    Had good fun going through the pawn guild basement battling tentacles on the way out. Some fast running and several pawn revives saw me safely out, though got a bit hairy.

    Just figured out I can kit out my pawns. Finances dictate only myself and my main pawn get gear. The rest have to slum it. If you see Sheribaldi on your travels she is a level 15 mage and is freshly kitted out, grab her as a pawn if she is around hour level and take her for a spin.

    You lot are all experts so won't be interested but here is my first impressions of the game.

    To save you reading it, I like it a lot.

    I know!

    Especially as it comes out of nowhere, you are sitting on the menu, listening to some soft piano music, then all of a sudden: THE WIND IS PUSHING MEEEEEE

    Is going Strider - Ranger -- Assassin advisable?

    I'm currently a level 27 Strider and I want moar stamina. I figure a few dozen levels of Rangery should fix me good. Then I can switch to Assassin to improve my stabby stabby.

    I suppose it doesn't matter, though. The game is a bit too easy as it is. Maybe I should stop being lazy and drop Shikasama's overpowered level 129 warrior...

    So, not sure that hiding up a Cyclops is the safest place to evade a... thing... what even is that?!
