During September I played only three games, but they are quite lengthy if you let them be.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance was finished at the beginning of the month to where I started Dragon’s Crown right after. You can read about MUA here.
On Dragon’s Crown I had a fairly good time with it. However, as I said last week, I had trouble with the last three bosses. My Amazon character was not properly leveled up in the skills department and therefore I could not defeat them before being forced to next the level. Thankfully I had backup in the form of Usagi704 and RivalShadeX to help me out with their badass elf and wizard, respectively.
With their help I was able to move onto what I had planned to play for a year. Why a year in advance? Because it is for my 4th annual Halloween gaming event, of course. The game? Dark Souls!
Just as I did with Demon’s Souls two years ago, I am using the Dark Souls Wikidot Wiki since the game does not always explain things very well.
This time my beginning class is the Knight. Not for namesake reasons (though that is nice enough), but it was the overwhelming choice of the Internet Zeitgeist that it is the best class for beginners.
It did me well up until I faced off against the boss of Lower Undead Burg, the Capra Demon. With the help of two dogs I was killed six times before I was reminded by Usagi704 that “fat rolling” was mainly what was getting me killed. Once I lightened the load of my armor and was able to more swiftly roll about, I was victorious. I was also very lucky on my sixth attempt to get the two dogs out of the way quickly. After that I simply lured the Capra Demon up the stairs multiple times and had him jump off for a long recovery time.
Overall it has been going quite well for me. How’s your gaming life been (trick or) treating you lately?
Thanks for reading and have a good upcoming Halloween season!
