Yeah, nobody bothers to carry around orange soap just to rate messages. Nobody bothers to carry an indictment either, which really killed the Darkmoon Blade covenant. Sounds like they're eliminating that stuff for Dark Souls 2 though. Yay.
Anyway, as for the PBS, I have an Asian server SL110 or 115 with a PBS if anybody needs one on the Asian version.
And I have an SL141 on the NA server that doesn't have a PBS, but could transfer a PBS from a SL120 to your 161, if you find a 120 that's willing. I'd like a PBS for that build anyway. Part of your problem is that you leveled so high. Most don't go over 125 and I think 141 or 143 or something is as high as you could go and still be w/in range of 120.
God, where were you months ago when I was grinding for hours and hours to get that stupid thing...
Some good advice here, also the Cloranthy Ring is very good and everyone seems to forget about it, Grass Crest Shield, Mask of the Child, Ring of Favor and Protection, Cloranthy Ring is a fantastic setup.
hmm...it appears there are no double trophy sets for Dark Souls.
Looks like Demon's Souls has double trophy sets, maybe because the Japanese version was published by Sony, and the US version by Atlus? Dark Souls was published by Ban Dai in all regions, so it appears there is only the one trophy set? Well, at least whatever semblance of a social life is safe.
With all this Dark Souls action on GB I'm thinking about going for one more S-Rank...
I have S-Rank'd Demons' Souls, the US version and Japanese versions (separate trophy lists). Dark Souls for 360, PC, and PS3 (Japanese). And, this morning I received a package from my mom from the states...in there, a brand new, unopened USA copy for PS3.
Should I go ahead and dump another 100 hours into this game?
Did it...twice, US and Japanese. What a grueling weekend.
BIGGG props to csx009, who helped with a pure bladestone for my US Platinum...sadly, since the games are on separate servers, I don't know anyone for help with it...so...I had to farm those skeleons for a very, VERY long time. Then the drama didn't end when I did NOT GET A SINGLE pure moonstone out of those 8 lizards, so I had to NG++ it to get the Moonlighter's Trophy, how ironic....got a pure moonlightstone on my first try in my US run.
i prefer demon's souls, i found the five-worlds-around-the-hub set-up neater aesthetically, despite loving the connectivity of the map in dark souls initially, it kinda sprawled out of control and wore me down a bit by the end. also demon's souls has my favorite level of all time - the tower of latria - an achievement in grimness and oppression.
but whichever you prefer, both are great games in their own right, and I'd say demon's does not at all suffer from the design drawbacks that a lesser-known first-in-the-series might be suspected of.
I agree with you, it is not "inferior" in any way. I would add that I really liked The Valley of Defilement, minus the slow crawl through swamp thing (clearly this is why the Rusted Ring was made). Especially the climax at the end of 5-4...the music, the dialogue, voice acting and unusual battle situation, just heart wrenching stuff.
"Go forth Garl Vinland, and may you be unharmed---" beautiful stuff.
