    @nickux: Your strategy was largely the same as mine has been. I just need to execute and have a run as good as yours. It's the charge attack that trips me up every time. If I get lazy once and forget ...

    Hard to say how much my opinion is colored by nostalgia, but I have to think my answer will always be Super Metroid. The Prime series was fantastic as well.I was finally able to play Dust when I got a...

    Haven't read the responses, but I just had a drunken conversation about this tonight. Playing Bloodborne makes you realize just how much DS2 was made by the B team. A lot of the changes they made from...

    I stopped watching fifteen minutes in. Seven was probably enough. I get that Dan's trying to be a heel, but I don't find it amusing. It's not entertaining, it's just tedious.

    I got him on my first try, though it took nearly all my vials. I learned pretty quick that Rom and the spiderlings are super vulnerable anywhere but their head. After his first teleport, when more sp...

    Let's keep this baseball Quick Look streak going with a Griffey Bombastica! I played the shit out of that game! I even looked up statistics on the 1993 season so I could find out who each of the playe...

    I think I played the demo on PC? It would have been back when Patrick first showed it, so it's been a while. I'll pick this up for PS4, but I have reservations about how the arrow will aim on a conso...

  • Maedhros925 posted a message in the forum topic Will I be able to go back to Dark Souls 2. on the Bloodborne board

    Oh, absolutely. There are some mechanical differences to be sure, but Bloodborne is a Souls-ass Souls game. Playing a previous game in the series should feel immediately familiar. Don't worry about t...

    Camera, camera, camera. The game didn't click for me until I switched from the axe to the saw cleaver. I kind of wish they had made that your default weapon from the start, rather than giving you a c...

    @zevvion nailed it, especially by emphasizing exploration and experimentation. The Souls games are puzzle games, solved through a combat system.
