Copying this from the old Souls thread to feel smug:

My experience with them lads:
 

I had the proper O+S experience when I replayed the game on PS3, to be fair. Laughing

One of the best ways I've heard someone describe the mindset for beating Dark Souls is to stop thinking in terms of a game and start thinking as though you're really there in Lordran. In a videogame  if you see a dragon you might reckon you can fight it, but in real life you'd turn and run. In a game you might randomly attack innocent shopkeepers, but in real life you'd be banged up.

This has actually proved to be pretty good advice, the number of times I've taken silly risks hasn't dropped all too considerably but I'm taking a lot more time to prepare for antics down the road, like buying a lot of more throwing knives (poison tipped, no less) and moss.
The game is climbing quickly into my good books, I have a ninja outfit (matching my aesthetic) and I can throw fireballs at unsuspecting foes. Currently in Blighttown getting my farm on while I try to figure out what I am even meant to be doing...

Have you reached the bottom of Blighttown yet? If not, have a poke about down there.

I have done since, did some poking about the toxic swamp and got crushed by an ogre with a big rock. Awesome.

Did you find the bonfire in the swamp? If so, you're through the worst of what ol' Blighty can throw at you.

Yeah, look for a sewer-like tunnel first before exploring the rest of the swamp area.

Have you been to Darkroot Gardens? You should have some lovely moss to help with the effects of the swamp.

I've now finished with that ghastly swamp for good and have breached Sen's fortress, featuring big nasty lizard men. I think it's safe to say any initial grievances I had with this game have subsided and I am really enjoying it at this point Smile

I found blight town a breeze... But that's because I got annoyed with the game long before I ended reached Blighty. I only went back to the game after Drunks kept telling me to git gd in real (for like a good six months)'

Souls is a bit like driving: once you master the clutch you get it.

By the time I reached Blighty, I was prepared and methodical and didn't need any guides.

Sounds like Duck's gut gd with the clutch. Thumbs Up!

There's moments like that in all of the From games I've played - that moment where the mechanics click and you become one with the Matrix. And then the game throws thousands of Agent Smiths at you and the fun's all over...

I've got my own clutch sorted again now... but not the indicators, as once again I used my free starting item in a "wrong button" press. Plus I played against morning light, not being able to see the screen properly, so if anything I'm more hardcore than anyone Razz

You need to pick the Pendant to unlock the secret ending - it's the only starting item that matters.

Cos they eat people.

Curse hates wax, the pope is a crab, rats eat people. These are the facts. Deep lore.

We didn't cover DS1 in Guesstus - my lore bombs aren't loaded up for that game.

There's a bunch of rats under the bridge with the dragon leading up to the Undead Parish. I think there's a bonfire close by too for easy respawning of those rat boys too.

Yeah, I do think it's a massive difficulty spike, but I suppose the good thing is that there's nothing harder than that for the rest of the game. If you can beat them, you can finish the game.

See, I'll agree that it's a difficulty spike but the thing is . . . I love it! I genuinely love that fight, getting it just right, learning the timing when to dodge when to attack, the spectacle of it, everything. I beat them solo every time and it's the pinnacle of my run.

I'm still working my way through this. I'm determined to clear everything out (I never had the DLC previously), but...
Ash Lake's a load of old bollocks isn't it?:
 
Other than that, progression everywhere is (a) better than the first time I played it, (b) still quite reasonable. I fear I should say that in case someone thinks I'm moaning! BLASPHEMY

The DLC's great - one of the bosses in there is the best in the series.

I like Ash Lake, probably for the same reason you don't like it: It's all atmosphere and lore and story and nothing else.
