Mmm, Mario theme park that sells edible red/white shrooms, yeah that sounds like a great idea.

Fringe changes the type of show it is completely past like the 2nd or so season or something like that. It turns more into a crazy sci-fi thing that focuses a lot on alternate universes/timetravel/stuff like that rather than the strange mystery weird detective thingo it was. The ending seemed pretty good and i remember that they tie up most if not all of the loose ends and answer almost everything. Also a bunch of pretty awesome stuff happens in the later episodes that you might want to see. There were a few twists that were kinda dumb though.

I'm really not sure how i'd answer this one. Techinically i'm pretty sure 2 is the better game, but there's a part of me that still lilkes 1 more. Some of changes and stuff are just not to my liking. Also, i miss the old backstab/parrys. It's sad when the backstab animation for swords doesn't actually involve a stab.

Maybe i should sign up, but Mace plays I-No, and that means i might have to play against I-No, and i hate I-No, so...I don't know.

Bitterblack being as big as a whole souls game? That's crazy. At best i'd say it's maybe double or triple the Artorias DLC, depending on whether you're counting size of the are or how long it takes to play through.

Wait, I got a microphone? I don't think I had one packed in.

It's one of those earbud things that you get with phones. In fact, it's probably is the exact same, maybe they changed the logo a bit or something, but it looks the same as the one i got with my xperia.

I assume these are just going to be in the PC version as soon as it comes out huh? Those NPC summons buffs are greatly appreciated, since that's probably the version i'll actually put effort into doing that stuff in. Dunno about the other changes, i was planning on using some of that stuff when the PC version came out, but didn't bother with them in the console one, so i'm not sure how those changes will actually change things.

That nerf to magic greatsword i'm not sure about, i never saw that used much and even then it didn't seem that strong. Also while we're on the topic of that, anybody else feel that animation is take straight out of Armored Core? That's totally the laser sword animation from those games.

I'm of the opinion that the Drangleic we explore in Dark Souls 2 is inside the abyss, and therefore we should take all geographical stuff with a grain of salt. That said, the Bastille, Huntsmans Copse and Undead Purgatory are probably from the same kingdom, most likely the same one as Iron Keep, which is very likely from before Drangleic.

I like to think that the reason for all the kingdoms is that they all fell into the abyss somehow and now that we're in there we're seeing parts of them, whether or not they're from the same geographical location or not. This doesn't discount the fact that where Drangleic actually exists/existed in the world other kingdoms used to exist, Heide clearly was in the same land as Drangleic.

Though, i might have to rethink this theory after reading a bit more about some stuff, where katanas come from, where they originated in the original game and stuff like that is probably a good place to start.

Whoah at the gibberish.

I also ran past this part. I basically took one look at the enemies and their placements and how much damage it would take to kill them and just decided they weren't worth the time, and so i did what i did throughout al least half the game, ran past them. Luckily there' s no boss at the end, unless you want a boss.

@grillbar: yep, Smelter Demon has heard every variation of the term "bullshit" from me.

Ha, i don't think i raged at him, i just was kinda amused. Cause the only real bullshit thing that he really did to me was glitching me into walls. Made me do that fight a few more times than i should've needed to.
