Man the drake sword is so bad ass. I'm like 1-3 shotting things now.
Totally agree.  I changed the way I was building to be able to wield it.  Not sorry I spent the time.
Regarding how to get the drake sword: 
Spoiler for Hiden:
Can I get the drake sword by shooting the red dragon in the tail until it leaves?  Is that how you both got it?
 

Yes you can. I got it that way. Took me 17-18 standard arrows, but it might be different depending on your stats.
Thanks...just got it.  Except it took me about 50 arrows lol.  I had the minimum dex required to use the shortbow...and my aim wasn't great.  Now I need to pump up some strength to use it.

There's another way to do this that I found easier:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Instead of shooting the tail, walk down to the entrance to the room with the 3 rats in it.  Stand on the far end of that ledge and look back up at the bridge.  You are much closer and can shoot the dragon in the head from there.  Gives the Drake sword just like the other method.

Creatures with tails do not drop their tail item unless you specifically attack that body part. If you experienced anything different, you've probably run across a bug. Shooting something in the head is not the way to go if you want a tail item, and this particular enemy will take hundreds of arrows to kill with headshots, from what I hear.

About the Wild Hunt storyline:

Spoiler for Hiden:
They're just laying the framework for future games. We'll dive deeper into the mystery of Yennefer and the Wild Hunt in the next game. Look at it as a major, overarching storyline in the series, something you discover along the way as you complete your more immediate objectives.

It's the same with the political aspect of the story. The pieces are being moved around on the board, but no truly decisive moves have been made yet. You end up in a situation where the maneuvering done by the bad guys mostly succeeds, but they don't get to enjoy the spoils. The war isn't over, and neither is the role of Foltest's children. Considering Foltest's last words to them, I think the developers are planning something big. This was the guy who sired Princess Adda, after all.

As for invasions, don't grow complacent. People from the right (wrong?) covenant can invade you without causing a message to appear. Doesn't that make you feel safe? slywink

The ghosts you guys are talking about come in two types from what I can tell: Phantoms of people close to you on the network, where you can watch them run around and do stuff for a short while, and phantoms of people at a bonfire. The latter appear almost physical, which can cause a bit of a scare if you're not prepared for them. You still can't interact, but it serves as a reminder that other players are where you are, struggling with the same things.

Also, I just beat the Bell Tower Gargoyle with my warrior! Woo!

If it's like Demon's Souls, their entire purpose is to serve as a safe source of souls, since you don't lose them when you die. I save them for when using them would mean being able to buy an advance I otherwise wouldn't be able to afford, and only when I'm next to a bonfire.

Okay i just played about an hour or so. The texture popping issue on my end is there i can confirm. However it is no where near as bad as the videos that i have seen.
If i pay really close attention AND move super quickly I can see instances. But as I said above it is nowhere near as bad as I have seen nor read about.

I did some experimentation on my PC too, for comparison. If I quickly turn 180 degrees back and forth, the pop-in will eventually rear its head... for about a fraction of a second. The first few turns have no anomalies. Since this isn't a kind of move you'll do during regular play, I never see any issues while actually playing the game.

I'm aiming to always stay as close to 0 souls as possible when I leave a bonfire. Anything else is just asking to lose them.

One question (I've intentionally avoided previews to explore the game on my own): Are there still world tendencies, or has that been replaced by the humanity aspects?

There's no Boletaria (this isn't Demon's Souls) and no world tendencies.

This game suffers from one of my gaming pet-peeves: Hand-animated characters. Why are people still doing this? It's one of the things that ruins the Halo experience for me, and now Rage pulls me right out of the immersion with the same thing. They should have used motion capture for the people you talk to, as their movements now are cartoonish at best. Not as bad as the Halo games, but still pretty bad.

Is that why their hand movements stand out so much to me?

Very likely. Their animations are very, very exaggerated and unnatural, quickly and precisely moving between poses at a rate far faster than a normal human being would do unless on a caffeine trip. It's not just their hands either, though they stick out the most. You can see it on their heads and their general postures.

I just checked the Dark Souls wiki, and it appears you are correct. I could have sworn I read the 4/5 values just a few days ago. Oh well.

Don't forget that kindling a bonfire is supposed to affect nearby players on the network too, so if you're lucky you might end up benefiting from the effect without spending humanity... Unless they changed that as well.

oh and kathode one more thing about humanity - if youre human, you can go to a bonfire and spend one more humanity to "kindle" that bonfire - which gives you 10 estus flasks for that area.  and like tilt says a lot is "guessing" so who knows if it does more (i know if someone near in the network kindles i sometimes get a bonus flask in my game!)

10? I haven't played the game much yet, but my understanding was that you'd get 4 flasks normally, and 5 with a kindled bonfire. Perhaps I just misunderstood, or they changed things? 10 flasks sounds like a lot though.
4015  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Dark Souls on: October 07, 2011, 08:48:26 PM
Humanity is a mechanism that isn't completely understood by the player base yet, as far as I know. When human, some of your abilities may or may not be subtly enhanced. You gain +20% increased chance of finding loot for the first point of humanity, and this chance increases further with more points (although at a less dramatic rate). Some parts of the game may require you to be human (or hollowed) to find secrets. You can only gain assistance from other players when human, but this has a more ominous side to it as well: Being human leaves you open to invasions by other players. You're not really supposed to become human after every death from what I understand, but this depends on how you prefer to play the game. If you feel being human is worth it, then by all means go for it. You're going to run through your humanity quickly that way though.

- Fixed an issue where the game would actually start up. The game now crashes as intended upon launch.

In other words, turn off autoupdate until they fix this, or you won't be able to play the game.

While I'm very impressed with the engine and tech that runs Rage, I am excited and hopeful that they license out their engine for franchises. Imagine Fallout 4 that looks like Rage  drool

No licensing would be needed. Bethesda owns id Software. smile

IIRC, I ducked behind a pillar until he stopped his first burst of shooting, turned around and picked up an explosive cannister and tossed it at him. Tossed another one. Ran into the room to your far right when you begin the battle and took a breather. Picked up an explosive something-or-another which I can't recall the details of right now and tossed at him. I believe I either tossed another object or was about to when the fight ended. I didn't use any of my equipment and none of my augs. My first reaction was surprise that it turned out to be so easy.

the DLC is supposed to have a better boss fight, since it is being done in house and not being outsourced.

Quote
nstead they were outsourced to little known studio Grip Entertainment.

Deus Ex's boss battles drew criticism for their frustrating difficulty spikes. They also focused on action gameplay when much of the game encouraged the player to use stealth skills.

In a video posted online, below, Grip boss Paul Kruszewski admitted creating the boss battles was a tough job - and that he didn't know much about the Deus Ex world before the project began.

seriously, WTF?

I know this is old and beat to death, but bejeebus... whomever decided that Deus Ex needed boss battles - especially outsourced ones - needs to be shot. I get very little play time lately and had been making great progress through the story in little chunks... until I hit the first boss. Gak. I supposedly know all of the things I should be doing but for whatever reason I haven't been able to make it past him yet. It seems you've got to do the whole grenade/exploding barrel/lather/rinse/repeat thing perfectly or you die. So... I've died, more times than I'd care to admit. I step away from the game for a couple of days, come back fresh and then die, die, die, die, quit. Farg.

All I have are EMP grenades, can I get past him with those?

I got through that battle without using any of my own equipment (on the second or third try I think, on Normal difficulty), so you can get past him without the EMP grenades, and you don't need to do things perfectly.

In the beginning of that clip (or maybe another about him), they say his name is Joshua ben Joseph which was likely Jesus' real name. He has answered all your doubts - he must really be Jesus!

Quote from: Blackadar on October 06, 2011, 06:38:13 PM

In life, there are many times when you make decisions with less-than-perfect knowledge.  In gaming, however, I think it's often counterproductive as it lessens the emotional impact of any consequences from those decisions.  I think in gaming, making the consequences clear creates more of an emotional impact to those decisions.

I strongly disagree. Both Witcher games surprised me at various occasions with dramatic consequences to actions I didn't think were important at the time. Every time this happened I was shocked at my inability to see the faults in my decisions, as well as saddened if innocents had to suffer because of them. Then I was left sitting with a giant grin because the game challenged me with situations and decisions that felt real, instead of making it feel like a game show with three doors you have to choose between. Dragon Age gives you interesting moral dilemmas at times, but once you've made your decision you know what its consequences are going to be and you can forget about it. In the Witcher games, you'll constantly worry (in a good way) about the possible future ramifications of your actions. Dragon Age 2 took it even further in the wrong direction by making the big decisions give you feedback very quickly, while Bioware proudly proclaimed this as a great new "feature".

I really wish I could get in to the Witcher games, I own both 1 and 2, but the gameplay is a huge turnoff for me.  The twitch based combat ends up just frustrating me to no end, and to be honest I personally have never understood why people find the story to be so engaging, it just has never gotten it's hooks into me.  I stopped playing Witcher 2 somewhere in the town in the swamps.

The story is so engaging because it's bleak and complex. It reminds people of great fantasy like A Song of Ice and Fire because of the way the world isn't just black and white (and neither are the characters) and because of the heavy political focus. For people looking for swords & sorcery fantasy, it's going to be a turnoff. For those of us who like our fantasy a little darker and a bit more mature, with plots that go beyond "defeat the evil villain" and which actually make you think, The Witcher is brilliant.

Bioware attempt to play at the same strings with their Dragon Age games, but they don't come close. They are still caught up in black & white world building, even if they try to make things edgier through more complex NPCs. The Witcher games are the only CRPGs I can think of that offer this kind of depth in story these days.

For the record, I think that everyone should play this on the highest difficulty level. Crysis has the best implementation of difficulty I've seen in a modern game. It makes you very vulnerable, forcing you to be more careful and use every advantage you can get. More importantly, the North Koreans no longer speak English, but instead speak actual Korean. No more listening in on their conversations to know what they're about to do.

For the folks with mad skilz this is fine, but for those of us who are on the AARP's speed dial, Normal difficulty seems quite challenging enough. However, since the difficulty can be adjusted at any time, I will try Delta Difficulty <gulp>. Mind you, I would think that the same techo-wizards who can make a nano-suit should be able to make a gizmo that can translate Korean to English on the fly, but maybe they had company mandated sexual harassment training that day and never got around to it.  Meantime, how do I say in Korean "Don't shoot, I'm a friend! I love Margaret Cho!"?

It's not that Delta makes things harder, it's more about making it more interesting. If you want to run into a group of enemies, guns blazing, Delta is going to be tough. If you're going to sneak however, Delta will really make you feel the tension and will make you use cover, armor and cloaking for all it's worth.

Looks like the verdict is coming in. According to GameRankings, the current average ranking is 89.69% after 8 reviews (PS3 version), while Metacritic has it at 89 with 14 reviews (also PS3).

A couple of standouts from Metacritic:

GameSpot: "Dark Souls is an extraordinary role-playing game that transports you to an awesome and menacing world you may never forget." - 95/100
Joystiq: "The cycle of Dark Souls is essentially the same: Hours of diligent, often frustrating work followed by a surprising, often spectacular payoff." - 90/100
Edge Magazine: "Dark Souls beckons the masochistic with its chilly indifference. If you steel your nerves and persevere, the loot you'll uncover is an adventure so exquisitely morose and far-ranging that it will tug at your mind insistently during the hours you spend apart." - 90/100
Gamereactor Sweden: "Hard is hard. Though greatly satisfying at times, Dark Souls consists of many hours of pure frustration." - 70/100

Only in the sense that you can take over areas with military units. There's more than one reason why people most often compare the A Game of Thrones boardgame with Diplomacy.

I just played through a large chunk of the prologue in the newly added Dark mode. It was awesome, especially since I have a new graphics card that lets me enjoy the game at almost max detail. smile The combat is definitely challenging at this difficulty level, but I feel as if I have almost full control. It's been long enough since I played the game last that I don't remember exactly how it was before, but I certainly struggled way more with the prologue the first time through (at normal difficulty) than I did this time in Dark mode. I even took a chance at a difficult and optional battle that I talked my way out of in my original playthrough. Got it on the second attempt, after a battle that lasted about 5 minutes and which required me to use several of my abilities in clever and well-timed ways. Health drops very quickly if enemies manage to connect with their attacks, so dodging is as important as ever. I was able to do instant-kills by stunning enemies with Aard already, something I never managed to do the last time I played. I noticed that I'm wearing different equipment this time than what I did before. It's probably part of one of the DLC packages that is now included.

I was astounded at how it kept going....this is seriously....a GREAT OLD STYLE story driven action rpg romp the likes of which has been very scarce in pc gaming until now with this is an Deus Ex.  And make no mistake, Dead Island got a lot more gameplay than Deux Ex 2.

Now, now! Let's not go all crazy! Tongue Dead Island isn't in the Deus Ex genre. To qualify, dialogue has to be a very central part of the game, with multiple solutions to most, if not all, quests. AFAIK, there has only been two games like that outside of the Deus Ex games themselves: Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines and Alpha Protocol.

Wonder why they wouldn't want to make it easy for people in your friends list to get hooked up, odd.

It's because of the isolation. You're supposed to feel alone against insurmountable odds, and even the help you do get from other players is fleeting and impersonal.

Screw eye fatigue! When I spent a week sunbathing in the tropics this summer, my e-ink Kindle was a godsend. An LCD tablet would have been completely useless in the bright sunlight. It's also more relaxing when the screen has a brightness that matches the environment, whether I'm outside in the sun or in my dark bedroom with only a small reading light. An e-ink screen also simply looks better for text in the first place because it doesn't display pixels in the regular sense the way an LCD screen does and looks just as good from any viewing angle.

Is it even possible to arrange coop in this game? I don't think Demon's Souls let you control these things, or even talk to the other players directly.
