Old King Allant is harder than the entire Valley of Defilement.

(Still, the giant club guys will wreck your shit. 2-handing is a good idea because they don't care about most/any shields. Warding also helps.)

Once you start playing, I recommend the Wikidot sites for both Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. They have good level maps.

Don't agonize about spoilers. Just stay away from pages that are clearly about something you haven't seen, like bosses. Info from outside sources is almost never the primary tool you need for making progress/not dying.

Who's to say everyone that reacted badly to the criticism last time was part of the Giant Bomb community?

You don't have to own a Giant Bomb t-shirt or have 10000 wiki points to be a prick on Twitter, I don't think.

I think they might be vastly overestimating how attached people are to their game saves, of all things.

They're not expecting everyone to pay them, of course. That's why the ransom is so high, because then they only need a few "whales" who are in the 90th percentile of gullibility/being a crazy person. The same users who, conveniently, are the most likely to get malware.

Plus, it sounds like they already encrypt lots of other data on your computer that may be actually important. By targeting games, they are now just casting the net a bit wider.

It's not super small if you compare it to Kojima's arm. I think the full-size arm is a bit closer to the camera in that shot.

That said, wait 5-6 weeks and buy it on eBay, if you still want it by then.

@monkeyking1969: They are all awesome, unique flavors that are somewhat old-fashioned (all having ties to the old tradition of "medicinal" food), and which I have heard people complain about. Jeff Gerstmann, for example. Though even he liks root beer.

I rarely eat big leafy bunches of the licorice plant, so I think I'm good on the toxicity front. Not to mention, the predominant flavoring in American licorice is actually anise, not licorice extract.
