My first character was the knight (I think? The one who starts without a shield) and it wasn't too bad. I spend the majority of my time dodging anyway, and the lack of a shield means I have less weight. 

 

I haven't played in a while now. I got the Elite Knight Armour and ended up stopping in uh. Dead Man or something. I forget. I didn't boost my stats much so dodge-rolls are now half-assed frontflips, I love it


As much as I love quick-roll build, it's pretty suicidal on first playthrough, when you don't know when and what is going to attack. Any tight passages or bosses whose attacks you can't simply dodge are giving me hell.

But I guess that's part of the proper Dark Souls experience! The harder it gets, the more satisfaction you gain.

We had someone trade it in like 2 days after it was released cause he "died too much"....I think he missed the point of the game...

 

Also, I loved this https://www.youtube....h?v=gqzsI8jmwTs

Haha thanks for showing me this, hillarious.

130 deaths so far! Wooooo! (I just had to act all pro and play without shield ..)

Too bad the show didn't.


Mixed feelings there. It had no time to spoil like most shows. It died in its innocence when it was at its peak. Though part of me still believes it could've been epic and perfect to the bitter end, and so it's a shame.

I also don't fully approve of Joss Whedon's career choice. He used to make these underground TV shows with solid and truly splendid fanbases. Now he went for the mainstream, focusing on the pure hollywood of Superhero movies. Sure, he created one of the best superhero movies of the decade, but it's a total waste of his writing abilities. Sure, the comedy was top notch and the CGI of the Avengers was just over and beyond, but the story felt really poor and limited.

That makes me a bit relieved that Firefly's gone. I wouldn't want it to become more suited for a bigger audience, it was great just the way it was.

In Topic: What is your favourite anime when you are a kid?

I was practically obsessed over Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and Digimon.


Same, but also Saint Seiya (I made armor out of paper, my family was close to sending me to a specialist), Dragon Ball and Slayers.

Though I must say, even now when I watch the ending of Digimon first season I get teary-eyed. The nostalgia ... It was much a better show for me than Pokemon, more grown-up and exciting. Maytbe because it actually felt like Anime not a cartoon for kids.

In Topic: PS VITA THREAD

3DS is obviously better, but what makes PSVita a good choice is PSN+. If you are a subscriber paying like 50 euro every year, you have a great free game collection on PS3, PSP and PS Vita. Of the three I only have PS3 and pirated PSP, but it's still a steal for that money. As long as I'm subscribed I have Dragon's Dogma, Uncharted 3, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Borderlands 2, A tale of brothers, and many many others, these are just from the last few months. Plus of course just as many Vita games that keep itching me, because I don't have PSVita.

As for the MP3/Browsing internet thingy, isn't like every smartphone good enough for that anyway? I wouldn't bother on handheld console.
