I know this is a dumb way of thinking but buying something interesting from a somewhat independent company just seem more exciting in whatever way.

Then again, buying a product from Facebook just seem so wrong in so many level

one thing if I didn't know it was coming. God damn seeing it on the coming up schedule and having lunch ready eagerly awaiting to watch it while eating. It was so disappointing and now it's 7 hours later. Maybe I should just move on to NG+

Going up the stairs of Dragon Shrine was full of wonder, those dragon knights just makes you want to be one of them. I couldn't believe they could reproduce seeing Anor Londo for the 1st time.

But then the room passed stair way is all there is, and it was the end of the area. It was kind of a let down.

The last 2 bosses I fought post no thread whatever, aside from dying to a stupid gimmick. I didn't even know I was fighting the last boss till the credits start rolling.

And I have no idea what happened at the end and I still don't know who that lady is or why I'd been kneeling at her.

Played for 4 hours without knowing how to level up, expecting something like in Demon's Souls where I have to pass a certain point in order to level. Buying and using a hell lots of healing items because I have no flask. Dying to the Pursuer numerous time, being broken and went to bed.

Woke up at 5am and play again. Got desperate and cashed in the previous boss souls to buy more Humanity. still dying, HP down to half again with 1 humanity left. Decided not to care about the health state and just go rushing to the boss. Killed the boss at 1/2 HP without taking a hit!!!!!! yESSSSSSSSSSSSS

still don't know how to level up...

I only found out what I'd missed by watching the quick looks -_-

Great Shield up, Circle strait to the left. Works on 90% of the boss so far.

I just really hate the boss area itself. Tiny space surrounded by instance death. The boss itself is generic "epic" at best. I'm very tired of giant boss with just head and arms.

@doe3879: Okay, now it's off your chest. Feel any better?

Yes, I feel better now.

And sorry about all those typo and non nonsensical sentence structures. I did wrote it all in one go. English being my second language didn't help and I had never used the word "rant" in my life, only heard it from podcast and other audio/video forms.

Glad to see I'm not the only one feeling this way.

Need to let out all my frustration accumulated over the years. Sorry for the language.

I love the people at GaintBomb, the things they do and the contents they put on the site. The site looks great and it's very well designed in a lot of ways. But why the fuck wouldn't they ever organize all the contents in a sensible manner. The video feature page is one lousy mess with everything crammed into it. Even looking up for the video I want but unsure of the "name" is difficult, let alone trying to browse it.

Why do they insist on not adding more categories/folders/pages for all the different type of content they are coming up with, even with a brand new page redesign. For god sake Patrick had been doing the "Worth Reading" article for years now, how the fuck can there not be a page with a list of all those articles he wrote? And why isn't there an article page in general? Do they not care to keep a record of the stories they wrote at all?

Most of these categories of content sorting can sometimes be solve with using the search. Like sometimes I can search "Random PC game" and the site would display all that "category" of videos Vinny and Dave did back in the days. But half the time the search wouldn't work, right now I try to search Worth Reading and Worth Playing; nothing showed up.

And speaking of search. Maybe I'm stupid and never figure out how but is there no search by thread title?

Basically it comes down to me having some sort of OCD. With all these contents displayed in such a mess, drives me crazy over the years. And I love going back to watch all those "one off" silly they've done over the years, like the dungeon siege retrospective video Vinny and Ryan did. Please organize the site, it would be a shame all those content lost in pile of mess for new comer to the site.

Have that beer weekend sometimes and tag the content. Or select portion of the community do it, I'm sure there are people eagering to do it.
