My main is a pair of Audio Technica ATH-AD70X paired with a SoundBlaster Recon3D USB sound card. Sometimes I'll swap it out with an ATH-M50. Other times I'll use a Logitech H800 that I normally use for conference calls.

I really enjoyed the unique perspective you bring to Giant Bomb, Patrick, so I'm sorry to see you go. You used GB as a platform to give voice to the voiceless and for that I thank you, even if I don't always agree with your opinion.

Good luck and all the best for the future Scoops and I'm looking forward to see what's next from you.

@seikenfreak: I have to agree, the run back to the Executioner's Chariot was a huge pain having to deal with those agile dudes in between. Eventually I learned that running across the bridge and jumping onto the platform at the end on either side will make them lose aggro. This after learning those motherfuckers will chase you right up to the fog door and wreck your shit if you don't deal with them. Ugh.

Anyway, this was a good write-up Sarumarine. I played a melee character so while the Duke's Dear Freja and Looking Glass Knight were never problems for me, I felt the Lost Sinner and Royal Rat Authority were the toughest bosses in the game. I only went to Belfry Luna much later so I had to fight the Sinner in the dark but with patience I eventually won out fair. But man, the mobs in Rat Authority were so annoying I almost threw my controller at the wall. By the time I had finished meleeing the rats, the boss was on me and I'd die from the combination of its attack and the toxicity from the rats. Eventually after a dozen tries I pumped points into DEX to be able to kill a rat in one shot of the bow and the fight was won. The boss itself was very easy to deal with. Man, fuck this boss fight.

While I was pissed that the boss forced me to put points into DEX, I sure did appreciate the damage boost on the bow later on in Shrine of Amana...

The servers seem to be working fine for me; bloodstains and messages are appearing and I've been invaded twice within 10 minutes. Have not tried placing summon signs nor summoned anyone yet.

I'm six bosses in and for the last four I've been rocking the Craftsman's Hammer. Been thinking about switching to the Drangleic Sword but I hesitate to invest into DEX and VIT for it. Because screw fat-rolling.

Got stabbed by the sword-wielding dude who's just down the stairs after the firebomb guy in the second forest area. Did not realise until then that bringing your shield up takes longer right after you whiff an attack.

I've consumed all of the site's content on Demon and Dark Souls but I've never touched Dark Souls and only beat the first boss in Demon Souls. I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to games anymore so I decided to stop there and jump straight into Dark Souls 2. Hope I won't be missing out on too many lore references.

Way to shit on everyone's hopes and dreams, guy.

Just kidding, this is great work! I wonder how long it would take if we only considered black & white images.
