  1. Holy smokes Haligtree is tough. There's not one enemy I can't beat but it's just endless difficult encounters that zap the flasks. Slowing grinding my way through, I had particular fun in "oh fuck not those" alley at the bottom. Maybe I should be tackling this area after CFA but I feel I'm in too deep now! Must press on!
  2. 🕹 High Score Day #49 - https://highscoreday.com The shame. #4 was a guess based on art style, 5 also a guess for same reasons and got the wrong game in the series.

  4. About 100 for the top two, I did the bottom two ages ago at a much lower level. I guess I'm heading towards the endgame now. I'm currently at the final optional area (I've picked up a lot of spoilers along the way) having not enjoyed the snow area before hand. The town section with the candles might have been the low-point of the whole game. Utterly bullshit boss fight from earlier in the game gets turned into a standard enemy and lots of them. Managed to get through and I'm caring less and less about finding all of the item. Just get me through! So far the next area I'm making ok progress but they aren't half throwing some tough fights in. I'm keen to keep pushing forward so I can cry more at the boss though. Haven't tried continuing the main path yet, I can see why some people tire towards the end of the game but it's an inevitable pinch point where discovery makes way for a conclusion. I don't even have anything constructive to add to this thread any more, I just want to keep talking about the game.

  6. Framed #63 https://framed.wtf Good guess

  8. I've made some more progress. Castle Sol done, another area I wouldn't rate highly on Trip Advisor but glad I visited. If I've missed any items I won't be returning to get them. Finished a few catacombs I'd struggled with previously. Killing bosses on the first attempt is always good. Got rivers of blood; the people's sword. Don't have enough arcane by ten. Temping to pile in the upgrades but my current weapon is working too. Hmm.. Done lots of quest progress by jumping around the map a lot to talk to everybody. Also some use of guides. No chance I'd have processed some on my own. Got some items to level serious weapons to 10 that it turns out I could have done ages ago. Oh well always nice to have more special stones. Started exploring the snow field, ran around. Found a village, got killed by my most single most hated enemy in any souls game, and decided that'll do for tonight. Progress! I feel like I'm closing in on the end. I have very mixed feelings about this.

  10. 🕹 High Score Day #44 - https://highscoreday.com Maybe should have got 3 but no chance on 5. Thought I knew everything about the format this game appeared in, but never heard of this one.
  11. Oooh. I left. I did wonder if there was something to do with the diving board (or weird 'thing' that he was with) but I was so loaded with runes I was scared to so anything. Do tell! Edit - there are two Mogh's. I know about the secret on the Mogh in the sewers.
  12. Quoting myself...after a pretty miserable session Monday night I had a great time with it on Tuesday. First of all, although completing the area, I won't be leaving a positive review on Trip Adviser for Mohgwyn Palace. That place stinks. - My main weapon is now maxed out! - My main summon is now maxed out! - Completed the Varre's quest, including killing Mogh - he's a tough one certainly, but my winning strategy was to kill him before reaching his second phase, which was easy when using his shackle that I found earlier in the game. Surprised it worked so effectively but it made the boss a piece of cake. - Gained nearly 10 levels, 5 from killing Mogh. I nearly fainted when I saw how many runes he drops! - Continued potmans quest after managing to miss him following a previous fight. He came in fairly help when.... - defeating the fire giant. Took a few goes trying to learn attack patterns and dipping in and out, in the end I just ran to his ankle and repeatedly swung the sword until he died, somehow I barely got a scratch - also found a legendary weapon in the capital, though I admit I read that one on a guide So I'm now nearly level 120, tooled up and ready to tackle a few catacombs I missed from earlier in the game. I'm not continuing in the area I just found myself in. Nope. No way.
  13. Just done Varre's starting quest and got suitably destroyed in all three invasions almost immediately. No matter, onwards! I also found the illusive ghostwart 8 plant in the underground section. Now my Tiche is level 10! (Sentences you never thought you'd say...). I thought I was being careful exploring the world but everyone I take a step back I find another catacomb. Game feels endless.
  14. *googles who Varre is* Oooh I should probably do that. I never used the items he gave me a month and a half ago so he's been waiting around for quite some time.
  15. I might have already grabbed one in Nokstella if I've put another summon to level 8 already. I'll have to revisit that area but seeing how big it is I might just grab a guide. Not been to mogs place yet, no idea where that is! Makes me feel better that those catacombs are considered difficult! I'll never not hate those little gargoyles. Oh one last thing, as somebody who hates flying enemies in games - not just this one, all games - imagine my delight when I discovered
  16. Ugh snow area is kicking my arse. Admittedly I was very tired last night but I had a pretty unsatisfactory session. Suddenly I don't seem to be doing much damage to anything, having wrecked pretty much everything for the past 20 hours. It's also very clear I don't have enough options in a fight, despite being a caster, two swords, a bow and a shield (not all at the same time). I see messages saying "use poison", or "try fire", and I continue as usual spamming my moonveil special or pebble. That said I do have my off-hand sword I can change the element on... Last night's adventure I really want to upgrade my summon but can't for the life of my find the upgrade to level 8. One of my summons is already there but I prefer this one (Tiche), and now the flower I need is nowhere to be found.
  17. The Bad Guys Dreamworks animation's latest and they've become more creative in their approach. The influence from Sony animation is there, with lots of 2d post effects that look great. It's a kid friendly version of Oceans 11 and they've done a pretty good job. It starts well, sags a lot in the middle and then ends reasonably well. So not great, but it's watchable enough. 3/5 E.T. First time watching for the kids (10 and 7). They enjoyed it but perhaps not as much as I did around that age. For me it's still an all timer and other than effects it hasn't aged at all. 5/5 Back to the Future trilogy Again first time with the kids, it's probably my favourite series of films so we'd be in disowning territory if they didn't like it. 10 year old was so utterly gripped by the first film that he couldn't contain his excitement. I had forgotten just how tense the finale of 1 is. The second and third films were less popular, but still well liked. The additional layers in the second film were too much for them to follow (their minds were suitably blown) but the third is just a nice fun watch. As a trilogy is holds up so well, for me it's just about perfect. 5/5 James Bond No Time to Die I'm not a massive fan of Bond from any era and this one didn't land for me either. I had some great moments of action, sure, but I found it over long and plodding. 2/5 Jungle Cruise Was keen to give this one a go, the Rock is quite entertaining and the premise looked fun. Unfortunately they really managed to suck any fun out of it by dragging the paper thin plot over a stupidly long run time, and cram the film full of 'mild peril' in pretty much every minute of the film. Is long and boring it took us three nights to get through it. 1/5
  18. 🕹 High Score Day #42 - https://highscoreday.com Massive guess on numbers 2 and 4 as haven't played either
  19. That's a great bit of casting. He's the standout in Sex Education (well worth a watch, one of Netflix's best shows), has a great emotional range and an incredibly expressive face.

  21. Decided to poke my nose into the area after the capital....stomped on, multiple times. It's not like any one enemy is that hard but flipping heck they do a lot of damage, and quickly. I've powered on through so far, largely by over levelling, but I might be getting close to the point in most Souls games where it becomes too hard for me to enjoy...we shall see! Visually already found one of the most stunning vistas of the game so far however, so it's pulling me through My god this game is big though, it just keeps going.
  22. I killed the boss by finding him the exploration way, and there's still a quest marker for the assassination mission I was on. I haven't been to that marker yet so there might be nothing there. Think I'm nearing the end of the Dung Eater quest...he seems like a strange fellow. Also found two hero graves but not sure I can be arsed to do either, I didn't enjoy the first one much. Ooooh also....sewers spoiler
