• Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Is Summoning the same thing as surrendering to you?. on the Bloodborne board

    I wouldn't call it surrendering, but I don't really find it fun or interesting. I'll gladly take part in co-op by helping others out, but when I'm doing a playthrough myself I'm not really interested ...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic My first impressions of this game. on the Mortal Kombat X board

    @zeik: I guess it sorta comes down to perspective, wether you see it as three different variations that each have a few extra moves, or a three different variations that lack a few moves. I wasn't re...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Watch someone play for low cost or play yourself at a higher cost. on the General Discussion board

    I dunno.. I'd probably still buy games if they cost $200, I'd just buy way less. I'd never pay $15 to watch someone play a game though.

    Not exactly pro advice, but if you're a newb and just need some help getting through the story there are plenty of characters that have a very simple pop-up into uppercut combo that will do 20+% damag...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Is this game just not for me?. on the Bloodborne board

    I'd suggest taking a peek at the start of a normal playthrough on YT or something similar, just to check if there's something you're doing aggressively wrong. It might also be a good idea to start ov...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic My first impressions of this game. on the Mortal Kombat X board

    Having almost finished the story and played around abit with the towers I feel like they've done the same "mistake" I've noticed a lot of these kinda games (with a big casual following) have been doi...

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post This is the New Guitar Hero.

    I actually got sorta excited when I saw the picture of the new guitar. Then the live action video started... I guess I could see myself enjoying it if it's like my favorite band and they get the tone ...

  • Ares42 posted a message on the post Quick Look: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin.

    @lackingsaint: Ye, I tried jumping into the game after having spent a week+ playing Bloodborne, and it sure takes some getting used to.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Are you going to get a Platinum trophy in this?. on the Bloodborne board

    Already got it. Didn't think I'd replay the game after my first playthrough, but as with all other Souls games it's just so easy to jump back in and go for another run. And it's always exciting to exp...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic That was the worst boss in any "Souls" game (some spoilers). on the Bloodborne board

    @humanity: heh, not saying that, you probably just didn't experiment enough with the weapon, since it gave a bad first impression.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic That was the worst boss in any "Souls" game (some spoilers). on the Bloodborne board

    @humanity: I'm gonna guess you didn't play aggressively enough. If you just dash attack into enemies with the blades they rip things apart (almost every attack other than the default R1 hits with bot...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic I found Rom today. I'm very unhappy right now. (Spoilers). on the Bloodborne board

    My big tip for Rom is to just keep dodging, and by that I mean lock-on dodging. For me it was the boss that made me realize that you should just use the lock-on dodge/dash to advance on your opponent...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic That was the worst boss in any "Souls" game (some spoilers). on the Bloodborne board

    @seikenfreak: Having played through the game with both a strength and a skill based char I have no idea what these guys are talking about. The blades are by far the best weapon in the game if you ask...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic I laughed about Jeff. on the Bloodborne board

    @artisanbreads: The thing is, a lot of the games we consider very "standard" are actually pretty hard. Games like CoD, Mario, Street Fighter etc. The reason we don't consider them especially challeng...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic I laughed about Jeff. on the Bloodborne board

    The myth of Souls game being excruciatingly hard comes from back when people didn't understand its systems. Every time I see someone playing these games and finding it too challenging it's because th...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Ledge Item near Amelia (pic). on the Bloodborne board

    If you've killed the blood-starved beast you can get to it, but it's a pretty obscure secret passage.As for the door, if it's the one by the chest after the room with a bunch of urns, it never opens....

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic I just don't get Blizzard's card design. on the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft board

    BRM also introduces Blackwing Technician and Emperor Thaurissan, both of which are insane control cards. The game was already slowing down a tad too much after the Naxx adventure (due to the introduc...

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic What exactly did that patch do?. on the Bloodborne board

    Bug fixes. They already said they would patch a progression bug asap and it seems it's also addressed some dupe exploit.

  • Ares42 posted a message in the forum topic Favorite weapon so far?. on the Bloodborne board

    @eliminator: The daggers are sorta hidden/complex to find.. the scythe.. I don't really know how to explain without spoiling anything :P but ye, don't expect to get either of them handed to you.
