Floating Boy - Dark Souls just owned me in the ultimate way. It killed my PS3. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU..............................................


Damn bro. Yellow light? I had a corrupted HDD myself last week. Lost game saves from 2007. I had to buy playstation plus for the cloud storage.


No it's a flashing red light. When I try to turn on it starts "whirring" like its booting up but then shuts down.


I hate when shit doesn't work right. Give this link a look:

A lot of the newer games YLOD the older models. That's why I sold my Fat and got a Slim. L.A. Noire was notorious for this.

Is anyone playing the Thief character? I like the thought of a quick character that dodges and backstabs and such, it would remind me a lot of Ninja Gaiden (and in fact the Thief looks kinda like a ninja) - but I don't know if such a playstyle requires serious experience with the game's specific combat engine, maybe shields are much better and easier, etc.

If you're new to the series, I wouldn't recommend the Thief to start. Both games have a very deep combat system, but they don't play at all like extreme action games like Ninja Gaiden or DMC. You'll want a shield for your first run.

I love the thief. Him and my Pyromancer and my Wanderer are my mains. Just make sure to circle and utilize his boosted critical attacks.

I've beat the Gargoyles, rang the bell, and beat the demon by the blacksmith.

Now what? Phone Post

So I just got crushed by a HUGE fucking boss. But before I did I picked up a cool sword. Hope I can use this on that fucking big knight who my scimitar seems to have no effect on.

Digging this game...even if it doesn't like me back. Phone Post

No seriously, that can't be it. You act as if that completes the game. Better not. Phone Post

Thanks...so I guess if I'm new to the series, stick to ye olde warrior and try the funky stuff later. If it's as good as everyone says, I will certainly play it multiple times with different characters.

Two funny notes:

1. The hint guide for Dark Souls apparently had a VERY limited print run, and it was expensive and hardback to boot (about $25). It is sold out everywhere and now going for s/t like $50-$80 on Ebay...so I suppose if you see a guide book at your local shop, snag it and profit.

2. The website for Dark Souls is "www.preparetodie.com" - LOL, at first I thought that was pretty overly ballsy, but having played the game now, it sure is accurate :-P

I weakened him by climbing the ladder to get on top of the house and throwing firebombs at him. I also found that if you attack him as he is coming down the steep stairs (to the right of the ladder) his sword attack goes over your head without hitting you while you can stab him.

Body Shots - I started over from the beginning because I skipped a lot of shit..

I beat the Asylum Demon thing pretty easily this time.. Haha

I picked everything up this time and went down towards the black smith guy.. now I'm in undead burg and I passed the part with the fireball throwing guys, but I keep dying now trying to fight the big guy with a sword when you go down some stairs.. It's right where the other guy rolls a barrel at you..

I'm gonna retry tomorrow but man this game was worth the 60.. I bought Rage at the same time and have only played it once.. Think I might return it.. Phone Post
Go up stairs not down, the Taurus Demon boss is up, your probably too low of a level to fight the knight. You'll come back to him eventually when your a higher level. Phone Post

Loaded Fists - Is it a constant invasion fest of douches fucking with your gaming experience?
You can only be invaded in human form, which is not very often for most people. There's more reward for helping people than hurting. Phone Post

Is it better to get back to human form as soon as possible? Do you get extra souls or anything? Phone Post

One way to kill the Taurus, if you're playing with a Warrior, or Knight, is to lure him towards the ladder you used to dispatch the Crossbow Undead (you did kill them before triggering the boss battle, didn't you?), while taking off damage between his swings. Then climb the ladder and plunge attack down to finish. Be careful though, the Taurus can jump up to fight you up there as well, so get up there and plunge attack as soon as you get up there.

OH SHIT I FORGOT THAT I'M WALKING AROUND DEAD. I was wondering why my face was all fucked up.

Fuck it's been a while since I played Demon Souls.
