  1. My biggest problem with O+S was finding space to heal, and think about what to do next. lacking any ability to "Git Gud", i tried the following: What really helped me was running "circuits" of the room; so run down one side of the room, between the pillars and the wall, then cross the room and go the other way down the other side. Most importantly, don't lock on to O+S while doing this, but keep the camera pointed at them. You won't be able to see where you're going, but the room layout is simple enough that it won't be a problem. With luck and a little practice, you'll find that you'll start gaining distance on fatty, as the two of them follow you in a loop around the room, dramatically flailing at where you used to be. Skinny will of course regularly leap the length of the room to try and hit you, but a well timed roll will dodge him, and as he'll now be far away from his pal, you can get a hit or two in if you're feeling brave/suicidal. This also gives you space to chug estus when necessary, and makes it much easier to keep both of them in view at once. Once Ornstein is down, keep a pillar between Smough and you at all times. Good luck:)
  2. Rapier protip: tap the roll button to backstep, then immediately tap light attack for +2 errol flynn;)
  3. Maybe a rapier in one hand? The thrusty attacks are really good for getting the first hit in, and it recovers fast. Plus it makes you look dashing:)
  4. Two handed spear run? Great reach, but no shield, so dodging well becomes essential. Or right hand dagger, left hand parrying dagger, so you have to commit to parries to do decent damage? I'm just starting my first scorcery run of scholar:)
  5. This is so addictive:) will start working through the codes here, here's my first meagre effort: "white men cant walljump": AC23-0000-0056-3F84
  6. Personally, a huge part of the souls games is sharing experiences and hype with others. Go for bloodborne, enjoy that release day feeling, then play ds2 after. And if bloodborne turns out to be crap, ds2 extra special edition is out a few days later. Win win!
  7. We have a winner! "...Mom's are tough!" FUCK OFF.
  8. Bought this on pS4 purely on the back of Gerbik's excellent write up. It's so, so good:) Buy it! Only other thing I would recommend for any first time players, try turning off the objective markers. It forces you to use the map to navigate, which doesn't have a big flashing "you are here" mark, but does show certain memorable landmarks, forcing you to map read to reach your objective.
  9. I'm currently sporting a fetching green camo number. Anyway, it's not about what you wear, it's about how gracefully you can victory twirl while you wait for evac.
  10. YOU NEED TO LEVEL UP, MAGGOT! ...sorry:/
  11. Spent the day on this in co-op, it just gets better and better:) Some games I'm the green recruit being shepherded along by someone double my level, other times I'm frantically prodding a couple of low level maggots to KEEP MOVING! This game is rapidly moving up from " really really good" to " required buy for a ps4 owner". If anyone's still on the fence, you won't regret it.
  12. Single player is actually great if you treat it like space metal gear solid. Get in, get out. No witnesses:)
  13. This feels really nice. Just done the one mission but the friendly fire really makes a difference, even without voice comms you all start thinking about lines of fire and taking good positions:) I'm jealous of my superior officers though, I can call a drop ship for a slightly bigger gun or two ammo clips (ooooh!), while the higher levels get giant mechs:O More importantly, they have nicer capes! psn id is blipwoo, add me if you tend to play during the day:)
  14. Been totally dark on this, but couldn't resist. Had a quick peek at that video, it's all so shiny! Got two minutes in, saw the newly added at tower of flame Watching nothing else now, and bloodborne better be amazing or it's getting replaced six days after release. Gonna start with a Simon Belmont run; whips, axes and throwing knives!

    Dying Light

    Right, that just sold me the game:)
  16. Dark souls 2:) Multiple routes from the start and so many combinations of weapon, armour and playstyle, combined with a multiplayer that hands you different bite-size adventures every time. Endlessly replayable.
  17. Wow:O P4 meets Catherine meets the phantom of the opera. There isn't a big enough!
  18. My partner and I played it together. Made it really simple, but the story and atmosphere are the main reason you're playing anyway. Also much funnier when your partner "accidentally" drops you to your death:)
  19. Just found out that I can get chrono trigger from the wii eshop:D Never played it before, hopefully it still holds up today.
  20. As others have said, dodge right then attack once, unless he's doing "slash, slash, leaping overhead", in which case get ready to roll forward under him after your first roll. Wear light armour, use a weapon that's not too slow. Stay close, give him a hug;) It also really helps that after every attack, he will back away before attacking again. Get the timing down and soon you'll be killing him without taking a single hit:)
  21. Search for a beginners guide on smashboards, there's heaps of theory there to dig through, as well as stuff for each character.And I die a lot too, send a friend request and we can hone our incompetence together.
  22. Well this is just beautiful, just started act 2, favourite level so far has to be It was also great to see the return of
