man just beat the lost sinner in 1 try. So dissapointed in the bosses up until now. They are just too easy. i took those three sentinels down on the second try, i mean wtf?

I expected more of a fight out of the lost sinner. since he's the first of the 4 whose names cannot be uttered.

@syndrom: Well in MGS4 he has a different VO than snake. At some point there has to be a switch over in VO.

It also seems to be part of a push from Kojima to further distinguish Big Boss from Solid Snake in The Phantom Pain. At some point, Big Boss has to become the villain - the Darth Vader to Solid Snake's Luke Skywalker for lack of a better analogy - and I think the change in voice actor is a part of that shift.

yeah i can follow that, but it's still jarring. Wish they picked somebody else than keifer sutherland though. can't stop thinking: 'hey that's that guy from that 24 shitshow' :(

@falserelic: Well, to be fair he isn't the same. This is where Big Boss stops being the hero and starts going into business for himself. So to me makes sense his VO is different.

that's a very werird justification imo. Why would his voice change along with his motives?

about nine hours in i guess. Killed old dragonrider and old dragonslayer and that dude in the ship today. That dragonrider and ship dude were way to easy for my liking.

Very cool game in other ways, like it more that dark souls for some reason.

@mikelemmer: yeah but still. It was magic user, so he just stood in a corner shooting magic bolts while i kept the boss busy. Felt like a big cheese haha

I'm still early on (in Forest of Fallen Giants), but I either came across an amazing coincidence or discovered a shortcut to the Cardinal Tower. It's going to be difficult for me to describe, but I'll try:

From the Cardinal Tower bonfire, I went down the ladder, through the fog gate in the room on the right, ran up the tree, fought the hollowed with their backs turned and took out the hollow that throws the fire bombs from above (where that Knight fight is when you climb the ladder). Anyways, in that corner before you go down the ladder to see Pate, I used an estus flask. After I used the flask the corner wall shatters to reveal the room where the Cardinal Tower bonfire is.

Has anyone else opened this shortcut or found out why it may have opened? I'm not sold that what I did was the only reason it opened up.

Yeah, a dude threw a firebomb in those barrels by the wall and they blew up taking the wall down. It scared the shit out of me, but was so happy with that shortcut :D

Stuff does wear down a lot faster, but every time you go back to a bonfire, all of your stuff gets repaired to 100% for free. You only need to visit the blacksmith if something breaks completely.

There's also a ring that slows down the rate of equipment wear.

holy shit, i didn't know that :( But that also resets monsters, and i don't really want to waste those.
