Ivory King is fucking awesome! Equipping the entire Loyce armor set gives some kind of attack power or health boost, equipping the Ivory King's crown also give some kind of health or AP boost, the bone fists are super fucking rad, and re-skinned Gwyn was a most awesome fight.
Toshiba's Qosmio line of gaming laptops are pretty badass. I have an old Qosmio x302 that can still hang with most of the games on the market, but at the minimum specs. Back when I first got it, I was able to play games on ultra high settings without any hiccups.
I was running around in the area where that golden fog door is after beating Ceaseless Discharge. I saw a treasure chest after going through the three taurus demons. After killing that one hanging worm, I ran for the chest, and got annihilated by four of those fucking things. Upon respawning, I somehow and for some stupid reason ran and jumped off the walkway and to my character's death. I lost close to 40,000 souls. I was pretty pissed off.
For the record, this is my first play through on the first game. I played up to NG+3 on the second one. I'm pretty sure I've missed all kinds of shit on this first go around.
