When you decided to summon someone you are already giving up on the challenge of beating that boss by yourself. It doesn't really matter if you summon someone at your level or someone who's 50 levels higher than you as they could probably beat the boss by themselves and would prefer you stay somewhere off in the corner so you don't accidentally die and waste their time.

It has ZERO impact on PVP since people who PVP stay at a specific level range and everyone in those ranges have maxed out gems and runes.

I can't understand the audio AND subs are bad.

You shouldn't use but if both are issues.

Without the character limit my intended title was "I can't understand the audio, but the subtitle solution would be bad for me because it's distracting" so I had to make some concessions.

@thebrainninja I believe that the subtitles are more distracting for me because I'm a veteran anime watcher. I read too fast so I know what's going to happen before the characters have the chance to say it. I want to focus on the character faces as they deliver lines because it's so well animated, but my eyes continue to dart towards the subtitles because that's what I always do while watching anime.

If there was an option to activate subtitles whenever a voice had a filter attached that would be amazing. No one can get through those specific scenes in the woods and come out knowing what was said 100% of the time.

I was playing with no subs and then got to a scene that takes place under a tree and could not here anything that was being said as the background noise and dialogue overlapped (also what was being said was very crucial!) so after that i have subs on.

That's the exact scene that made me post this topic. I missed the crucial part the first time and just did the thing. I reloaded and will not do the thing again.

I keep running into issues where I can't understand what's being said. The characters either have really thick accents or voices have lots of filters on them. The solution is obviously to turn on subs, but they are extremely distracting and I don't like to read ahead of the dialogue (anime watching has taught me to read almost instantly).

I save frequently so I've occasionally done scenes over again and there have been some major things I've missed without the subs on.

Is anyone else having this issue? What's the possibility of getting additional sub options patched? I believe Mass Effect and maybe even Inquisition would have the subs appear after the dialogue was spoken and you could advance the scene whenever you were ready, but maybe I'm imagining that.

Hibike! Euphonium 08 | Beautiful episode, yuri?

I'm hoping it is. May be one of the few series to depict one seriously, without being ecchi or a kiss-athon like Sakura Trick, or badly implemented like some shows.

@golguin: I've been watching it. I like that it didn't waste a whole season wondering if they'd get together. It doesn't really have any of the usual tropes seen in anime romcoms, which has been refreshing for me. I've read part of the manga, and the anime has been pretty faithful to it.

My reaction while watching Euphonium episode 8.

"What wait? What did you say? What did she say? Are you guys saying what I think you're saying? Oh...the finger move. YURI APPROVED!"

I had no idea the show was going there, but it did it better than any anime I've seen before. The dialogue between them was super legit.

For people curious this is the scene that started the route. Click spoiler for video.

The whole scene, them hiking up, and them at the top was really well done. While I do not think it will go yuri, too good to be true, it was a nice moment between what I think are the only 2 good characters of the show.

Hmm, well it's a lot of development that would be put to waste if it doesn't go anywhere. It also frames their past in a completely different light and gives Kumiko's past fascination with her some new context.

I guess we'll see in the next few episodes.

Has anyone seen MY love STORY!!? At first glance it doesn't look like anything special, but I'm 4 episodes in and it might have hooked me.

Good changes and the no level limit co-op thing now ensures that friends can play together without having to worry about saying within level range. The 600 limit for viles and bullets is really good. Could have used that on my Chalice Dungeon runs on my way to the platinum since I was just throwing souls at other consumable items (maxed out everything) because I couldn't buy anymore viles or bullets.

I wont be playing Bloodborne until the DLC hits since I got my platinum (Witcher 3 has taken over), but they should keep improving the game.

I had a lot of glitching issues with the Wyvern fight at the lighthouse. The first time it happened I actually smacked it into the water and just loaded the fight up again. This particular one had the Wyvern fall into the water. I followed it underwater and shot it with bolts. I'm not sure why, but the bolts were super effective as you can see in the video. I wonder if other monsters can be forced into the water.

In case anyone is wondering I did end up loading the game again and I fought and killed the thing legit. I was pretty low level for the fight (level 8 vs level 14) so it took a while, but it eventually went down.

There is also one in a Nilfgardian garrison, though I think it wanders away as soon as the leader gives you the details for the contract in Byways.

BTW. It happened to me too. It might be a bug, but actually the guy might have a problem with how you dealt with the "Wild at Heart" secondary quest (or a contract, I forget). Have you also refused the bribe from the sister? If you did, I think it invariably must end with the death of the warewolf or both him and the sister. It was only him for me and after the fight you can find her in the hut crying. I mention this because the problem with the blacksmith in my case occured some time after I finished that quest. It might suggest that it took her a while to get home and tell the story (her version at least) to her friends.

I think your theory is right. I can't talk to him anymore and the lady isn't in the Hunter's Lodge crying anymore. There were some guys outside her house in Blackbough saying how she was gone now and that it's probably for the best so she can be with her sister, which I took to mean she killed herself. I'd like believe they wouldn't design a quest that complete blocks off all access to an armorer NPC in a game where there are very few of them to begin with; and with no warning whatsoever. I'd like to believe this is a bug, but I'm not holding my breath.

I've had armorers and blacksmiths refuse to talk. Meditating always fixed the issue. This is on the PS4. I've heard similar things other places and resetting the game helped them out.

As for the Wild at Heart quest I completed it in the way you mentioned and the armorer wouldn't talk. I mediated for 2 hours and he talked again. Lots of dialogue stuff seems bugged.
