I came for the young Vinny in the thumbnail.

17 hours in, using the Bastard Sword. I like being able to one hand it with a shield in new areas, then switch to two-handed in familiar territory.

I saved up for the Silver Cat Ring to drop down into the well in Majula. Bought the ring, dropped down to the first platform and promptly died.

I guess I'll bump up my Vit?

I'm level 50 and only have 11 Vigor so that's not enough to survive that fall with the Silver Cat Ring. I wonder how much health I need.

I survived with 15 vigor and the Silver Cat Ring. Not sure if anything between 11-15 would work, as I didn't try until I had 15 vigor.

Hmm, I'm only at 7 now...not sure how much I want to dump into vigor. I might just have to find another way in.

I just discovered that the Black Armor edition is one of the nicest game cases I've ever laid eyes on. So clean.

@bybeach: Hmm, I didn't think to do that. Thanks for the info!

Amazon finally updated my shipping info with an estimated Thursday delivery date. Canceled that, then preordered at Best Buy so I can pick it up tomorrow. I rarely buy games brand new, and even when I do I don't necessarily need it on day one. Dark Souls 2 is a different story. I only wish I took some time off work.

I think I'll roll a warrior on my first playthrough. I want to be able to sample all of the weapons I come across in order to find my favorites to be used for future builds, so I want to have the STR and DEX to do so.

Nice! Good read Patrick.

Aren't they trying to go for some kind of story telling wrapped around the multiplayer matches? I'm going to wait and see before I call it "multiplayer only" because I think a lot of games going forward will be blending single and multiplayer together.

Its what made games like Journey and Dark Souls so great. Now you're seeing stuff like Titanfall, Destiny, and The Division taking that concept and applying it to shooters. I actually think its a much more exciting design philosophy than the antiquated idea that there must be two distinct modes.
