@deathshroud: yeah fuck that place , i had a bugged out camera that wouldnt respond to controls except in rare cases after warp striking , i spent way more time than i should have suffering through it to get to the FINAL block to push , only to be faced in the wrong direction so i couldnt activate it from my camera angle , i warped out , saved , reloaded , had to do it all again :/ ohwell that weapon was worth it

but fuck that place

it took me 7 hours total ... but it was so satisfying , i got stuck in a few areas but it turns out i was overthinking things in most cases ,trying to make impossible jumps that seemed like the only way to progress , such a surreal experience , so many troll treasures.

the major travesty is the genji gloves item is just terrrible , (it just gives 30% lightning/dark/bullet resist)

if your current pc wont run the game at a solid 60 at 1080p then consoles probably run it locked at 30fps , if not then at a lower resolution (or both), food for thought.

@jazzylament:I absolutely love that theory , but one small detail that may change your interpretation is that the ceo eventually moves out of the way of the window if you wait long enough

yes ... perfect ... mary would just have to take a pay cut and move to new york ... that is indeed the definition of a perfect fit

get a steambox lol (just kidding) , well a small form factor pc , will be a tiny bit more clunky than a laptop but alot more cost effective , you could have an enclosure that clamps onto the back of a monitor etc..or one of those ones that looks like a gamecube.

I wouldn't want to limit your future game choices but from the games you listed i think you'd be fine with integrated graphics (or the cheapest available graphics card)

or you can get an overpriced laptop to irradiate your balls with. (or as suggested a several-year-old model that fits your performance needs)

19 hours into my first game , cant help but feel alot of the systems and mechanics in the game feel very flat , but i know from experience that they will mostly overhaul these systems with the multiple expansion dlcs that i expect to come down the line , it mildly depressing to know that the dlc is such a core part of their business strategy now (with ck2 and eu4 progressing much the same way) .. but honestly I expected all of this , and im happy to have the base game available.

also .. 19 hours in and I still haven't gone to war yet because i got lucky? and have a pretty large section of space to call my own (waiting with butt puckered for late game events) .. im so used to ignoring victory conditions in paradox games, feels weird to even have them there.

pretty sure people used to lifegems in ds2 will feel a bit short on heals too , it just makes heal miracles more important .. oh how glorious it is when my host heals me , or when a gracious npc invader drops a warmth pyromancy and lets me heal while i kill him :)

if you want a bit more bloodborne there are some rings later on that have various effects to regain hp from combat , I haven't tested them out yet but it might be fun to play a "hunter" build

Ouch i spent ages farming 30 wolf's blood swordgrass from enemies (because the coveneant mechanics are terrible) .

I kept dumping points into luck as i went to increase the drop chance but it still took forever , by the end i was lvl 77 with 53 points in luck , when i respecced it into actual stats i felt so overpowered , didnt help too much on aldrich tho :/

edit(the wolf ring was worth the grind)

yeah i had a tough time coming from bloodborne , the regain/rally and the 20 bloodvial limit feels very generous now , i feel a bit short on estus even near endgame with 10 estus and 2 ash :/ this is dark souls
