Yeah Blighttown is annoying, but it is nothing compared to Duke's Archives, for a completely different reason. You will see what I mean when you will reach that point. Sen's Castle is frustrating also and New Londo Ruins.

All in all most areas of the game are frustrating and annoying.

There is certainly a conspiracy against me so that I'm not able to play Dead Rising 2: Off The Record. I will explain myself as briefly as I can.

Last week I bought a copy of the game for the PC version (that was a tragic decision) only to realize soon after that I cannot save in this game! I posted the issue that I had in the Capcom Europe forum for techical support. It is usually a very active forum, and Dead Rising 2: Off The Record a new and popular game, so someone would help me right? Wrong. After a week I hade 0 replies. In the meantime I posted the same Save problem message in another gaming site that had a thread dedicated to DR2:Off The Record save problems! My lucky day I thought... I checked today, after a week to read all those replies that I expected to receive, but...but...my message was deleted!

The third route that I followed was to send e-mail to the technical department of Capcom. I keep sending them e-mails to three different addresses that they have for this purpose and one second later after I send my message I get an automated reply that my message cannot be delivered!

Can someone please tell me what the hell is going on with this game and this company? Thank you.

No renting Dark Souls isn't a good idea. If you can't afford it right now, perhaps you might wait to buy it second hand, or from eBay that usually there are nice opportunities.

I couldn't agree more. I have not played any game like this before, and I'm an old gamer. Perhaps you might consider getting a PS3 console. For Demon's Souls and other good games.

I'm going to attempt him tonight. I'm level 71 , with about 330 defense vs. physical and under 50% equip load with a dex based character with high endurance. I'm using the chaos blade +5 and longbow +10 but I'm guessing the longbow is useless in this fight... So I look forward to being totally owned later on!

I don't think you will have problem at so high level. Just remember to always stay behind him and you will be okay.

I felt sorry when I casted my final soul arrow on its head and it started to erratically move its front legs for a couple of seconds before dying. But Sif had killed me like 15 times before, and I didn't even started this fight. He did. Sorry Sif. See you in NG+

Great story and read! Same here, I was Royalty class in Demon's Souls and when I learnt the ropes of it, the whole playthrough was a breeze, with soul arrows and Claws. But here...things are different, almost "satanic" I could say. lol

There is also another big and fundamental for our survival in the game difference between the two titles: The timing of dodge. in Demon's Souls you dodge early, in Dark Souls you dodge at the last millisecond. Try to always have this in mind.

I just beat him tonight. I have my lvl 65 Knight/Pyromancer. I tried used the moonlight shield to quickly kill him. I was getting over 1000 dmg, but the charge time caused me to get hit, or if i blocked, the attacked would go right through my shield. So, I finally gave up, and switched to Havel's armor and a different shield, and I slaughtered him with my Lighting Zweihander +2. Worked better than I thought it would. :D

"slaughtered him" lmao! yeah, I'm looking forward to slaughter him soon myself too. lol

@Humanity: That's what I love to do also in rpg. Return super-powerful and take my revenge on them. I used to do that in old Final Fantasy games. I remember in FF7 when I acquired the Knights of the Round materia + quadraple materia I swept everything in my way. lol In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night I also applied the same tactic. Even in Demon's Souls up to some point. But in Dark Souls this doesn't seem enough. I'm lv 60 but if I'm caught off guard, I can easily get killed even by mobs, frogs, rats, when being cornered.
