I've used a lot of the Uchigatana leveled to +15 and if you combine it with great crystal magic weapon and power within later on, it's really really powerful.

I've played 57, and I can't believe that. Where has the time gone?

I'd never played an MMO before I checked out Neverwinter earlier this year. It seems pretty fun and low investment to me. It has an auto-run key! That's probably standard but it amazed me.

It started get to more involved and difficult at around level 20 so I ended up stopping, partly because I had some much else to play though. Dota 2 might have stopped me. I can't say I regret the 15~ hours I spent with it!

Whenever I tried to play Dark Souls I only got about as far as I'd seen GB guys play before I gave up, I found it pretty stressful not knowing what to do next I guess. After the initial videos when it first came out I ended up waiting until Rorie started playing it on his twitch before I could get any further. Then he stopped doing his stream in July or something and I got stuck at Smough & Ornstein (just before he finished streaming). I left it again and when Vinny picked up his game from not long after S & O then I started playing it again.

I wouldn't be surprised if some other people are like me and I'm still absolutely loving the game and I'd say unless you're 100% going to finish Dark Souls then just watch them. The videos are really hilarious too! People say the fun is in the discovery of things in the game, but Vinny being hilarious when he discovers it is much better than when I might discover it on my own.

I think knowing what's coming and seeing how Vinny will react is probably less fun than being suprised with Vinny. With that said I am going to go into the final boss before I watch Vinny get there though because I imagine that's probably an important part of the game.

I bet everyone here who is suggesting that you play it first are the people who have played it first and so literally can't see it from the other perspective. That being said I can't see it from theirs either but I'm having a blast and I don't think I'd finish that game without it.

Definitely not the same room, probably not the same building.

Also, I didn't like Shame at all. Just such a pointless movie. Even more pointless than Black Swan.

Thems fightin' words.

What he said.

You monster.

Oh so she's just insane...pointless.

It's not that she's insane, it's about how far someone is willing to go for their art. I think it's one of the best films of the last 5 years and it really does match up with the wrestler as a double bill. Both films about trying to achieve perfection in your art, not matter how high or low and how the characters end up going to such extreme lengths to do so. Perhaps I got that because I studied an Artistic subject but it really really resonated with me.

Shame is also amazing.

I find the game to be pretty hard if I'm not paying a lot of attention to where I am. I just hope to see some black smoke to follow but if I get seen then it doesn't matter where I'm going because I'm just running. It seems like the robots have quite a free reign in where they go so they're regularly not where I expect them to be if I'm going back the way I came which ends up with me running and getting lost again.

I used ebuyer about 2 years ago and I was happy with them. They seemed about as cheap as I could find for most stuff, and I used amazon for the rest. Things might have changed though.
