@truthtellah: No, I get the impression most people reject the multiplayer that exists for fear of making the game "easier". I just like playing with friends :P Went through a lot of the original Dark Souls just summoning my cousin at every available opportuntiy.

Being able to choose who you summon in to specifically work with friends would absolutely make the game significantly easier. I can understand if that doesn't jive with one's preferences for how they want to play co-op, but the isolation of playing by yourself, and the uncertainty of how much help you'll get from summoning has been a pretty core part of the atmosphere in these games and I hope they don't change it.

"Metal Gear Collection 2014" being a clothing line is fucking hilarious

Microsoft Intellimouse is the absolute best for me. Super simple, really good fit in the hand. Inexpensive, and sturdy.

Totally thought I had more time on the first round and fucked up as well lol. I'm bought in on this one, hopefully it all goes through for that reprint. This shirt and entire idea is fucking awesome.

"Drop a bomb on it!" We've even got a sick sound byte from Jeff.

Really enjoyed this DLC. Played through all of it in one sitting, just couldn't stop. The "main" boss of the area is right up there with the toughest in the series, he reminded me of Artorias a little bit. I was a bit surprised with how easy the Sir Alonne fight was for my build, Havel's shield = you can pretty much not take damage the entire fight. The repeat boss is whatever, but I really enjoyed this DLC as a whole.

@turambar: Try pulling up Polytron's twitter account. It was hacked for hours and only after a flood of people flagging it at the request of Phil and some others were they finally able to get the account suspended.

I'm sure this will get modded and/or deleted almost instantly but I'm actually very dissapointed that most of the gaming press covering this have jumped instantly to the defence of these well known developers and condemned anyone complaining as a jerk or an asshole.

It's not just "people complaining" that has the press/dev's (and many bystanders) upset. It was a full internet mob harassment campaign, complete with the hacking (twitter, skype, etc) and release of private data of a number of developers who spoke out against the abuse. Whatever minuscule point of debate or genuine concern/criticism that might have existed at the center of this controversy, it was immediately buried in horrific, incendiary harassment.

We don't even know whether that is actually true, funnily enough.

I'm not inclined to doubt it.

This album put some serious fucking blinders on me, musically. Haven't enjoyed anything nearly as much since I discovered it; unequivocally my favorite album/band of all time. Gets better with every listen.
