  1. The last time I heard something different from TWC it was they were charging a leasing fee for my modem.
  2. In the first Dark Souls you can be invaded by other players once you Reverse Hollowing. And you become a Hollow again once you die. You need to Reverse Hollowing & offer humanity in order to kindle Bonfires. Currently I can only kindle Bonfires once. (Minus the Firelink Shrine Bonfire which was already kindled once as far as I know.) Only Kindled Bonfires will restore Estus Flask used. I haven't actually fought anyone yet. As far as I know by killing my after being informed that I'm being invaded I probably just lose all my humanity to the invader. I did also escape a fight by quitting through the console menu. I got a different message about how I quit when I started Dark Souls again but I didn't read it. Being forced into PvP when I'm enjoying PvE has gotten me aggravated. I should probably unplug my Xbox 360 from the internet when playing Dark Souls. But I rather not as I enjoy reading messages left by other players. - Personal Goals Achieved I found the Eastern Armor Set in Darkroot Garden. While part of me wishes I could wear this with a Fang Boar Helm with it.... Well.... I saw a bonfire ghost with it on and.... it looked cartoonishly huge. As far as I can tell I have all the loot from Firelink Shrine including The Binoculars. After returning to the area I got Elite Knight Set I got a Stone Shield. (Which makes a clank sound when hit.) While I was still their I murdered some breathing trees that were blocking a hidden path that lead me to the Wolf Ring. I got my Faith up to 29. Current Armor & Weapons The Eastern Armor despite it being weaker than Elite Knight +3 Set. Astora's Straight Sword. (I've been wielding it ever since I got my Faith up to 14.) A Black Knight Greatsword, but I never really use it. A Stone Shield because it's the best I have for blocking. A Black Knight Shield because I use to use it. And because maybe I'll use it again with that Black Knight Greatsword. Basically everything I'm using requires Twinkling Titanite.... Because I'm afraid I might accidentally use my Large Titanite too soon. Current Goals .... Part of me wants to take a break from Dark Souls. I could set some goals. But none of the goals I can set really interest me. I put 99:56:01 of time into my Female Thief named Jenny. So while restarting to make a female thief named "A Piñata" would make me more comfortable with PvP.... I just rather not start from scratch as I like a lot of the rewards I've gotten. Plus I rather not go back to collecting Hollow Armor & Weapons again.
  3. Interesting footage ruined by music that doesn't fit The Spanish Inquisition.... On the bright side it was unsuspected....
  4. With a name like Calixto the only conspiracy theories I'd accept are he's either A Comic Book Super Villain into Necromancy. An Alien from another planet with advanced technology. Secretly Calypso from the last Twisted Metal.
  5. If you could do that in any game weapons would probably be obsolete. Plus I wonder how would that impact Dark Souls Story & Gameplay. Story wise if humans could create such fire then why would anyone worry about the end of The Age Of Fire? Gameplay wise you probably defeat everything & indirectly cause a lot of Sins. PvP invasions would more annoying as you'd have to be the first one to kill someone with that power. And raises questions like if you destroy a certain painting how does that impact the Painted World Of Ariamis? After doing all that research on magic my current weapon stats goal will be Strength: 57 (Complete) Dexterity: 24 (Complete) Intelligence: 27 (After Faith) Faith: 29 (Next Goal) If I ever work on magic it'll probably be when Attunement is the only stat I have left to level up. Personal Goals Achieved I got a new Armor Set that isn't a starter set or from someone who isn't a (mini) boss. The Elite Knight Set in Darkroot Garden. I already got it up to +3 with Titanite Shards. I easily defeated every Mini Boss in Undead Parish. I only remember dying once to the Prowling Demon there. I got a Tower Shield & a Black Knight Greatsword. I didn't get A Fang Boar Helm like I wanted. But such a Helm would've been temporary for me until I got Ornstein's Armor Set. I met Andrei & Oswald. Shortcut wise I now have an Elevator that goes between Undead Parish & Firelink Shrine. I also got that ladder down that leads to the first bonfire you can find in Undead Burg. I learned the hard way that I now have a bridge to farm 555 Souls from. Because I lost over 10,000 Souls trying to run in the opposite direction that the Hellkite Dragon is perched. I freed some guy who was going to escape anyway....
  6. Warning: Contains Spoilers
  7. Poor Brendon Fraser. If only Dudley Do-Right didn't fail. He could've gone on to be Tom Slick, Roger Ramjet, etcetera. Then they could've had that one movie that would've tied all these characters together in one movie starring nothing but Brendon Fraser. It probably wouldn't be as successful as The Avengers, but it would've been better than Batman Versus Superman Dawn Of Justice. Oh well, here's hoping the next Mummy reboot is Rated R. .... Well unless it ties into that crappy PG-13 Dracula movie that is or was suppose to be the start of an Avengers like Monster Movie. Then I can only hope it fails. *Edit* Dammit it is.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Monsters_Cinematic_Universe#Rebooted_franchise_.282014.E2.80.93present.29
  8. I get most of what I know from http://darksouls.wikidot.com/. If you start out as a Sorcerer you will find the Sorcerer's Catalyst after using the Undead Asylum F2 East Key. If you forget it you can always buy it in New Londo. If you start out as a Pyromancer you will find Pyromancy Flame after using the Undead Asylum F2 East Key. If you forget it, it'll be awhile before you can get it as a Gift. If you start out as a Cleric you will find a Canvas Talisman after using the Undead Asylum F2 East Key. If you forget it you'll have to settle for a Talisman you can find at Firelink Shrine. - From what I can tell out of the 3 Pyromancer doesn't need Faith or Intelligence. I had a quick glance at the Pyromancies & didn't see any that could incinerate an entire room. All 3 also benefit from having Attunement up to 50 as magic isn't infinite. You will have to rest at a Bonfire to restore all magic used. Sorceries require Intelligence & Catalysts. Miracles require Faith & Talismans.
  9. Personal Goals Achieved Though this should've been an edit I did get my Faith up to 14 on the day I posted it here. I got my Thief's Armor up to +3, but I'm uncertain if I'll upgrade it more due to needing a large Titanite Shards. I defeated Haval The Rock after I was getting tired of leveling my dexterity at 20. My Strength is 57. I did this by running back upstairs to the door in Undead Burg. Haval will try to stay in the tower. So I was usually able to attack him without worrying of counter attacks. Thanks to some Twinkling Titanite I got from murdering a Crystal Lizard nearby the fog door in Haval's tower I was able to upgrade Astora's Straight Sword to +2. And after defeating Haval once I got into Darkroot Basin I found another Crystal Lizard to murder. That Twinkling Titanite would get my Astora's Straight Sword to +3. I defeated The Black Knight in Darkroot Basin. I was able to do this by heading up toward Darkroot Garden. One area of the path gets too narrow & causes this black knight to run away. that then leaves enough time to use an Estus Flask. I'm now able to enter the Valley Of Drakes from Darkroot Basin instead of just New Londo. Personal Goals Set Aside I've decided to set Defeating the Undead Dragon in the Valley Of Drakes aside. There are plenty of Bosses & Minibosses in Darkroot Basin that I also intend to save for later. Until I get a weapon that requires Intelligence I'll probably move on to leveling up Endurance, Vitality, & Resistance. When I do level it up I might stop at 27, 31, or 49. Basically one level before Moonlight Greatsword, Tin Crystallization Catalyst, or White Dragon Breath. Current Goals With my Strength at 57 I won't be leveling that up again until I get Smough's Hammer in NG+1. So I'm still getting my Dexterity up to 24 (one level before Dark Silver Tracer & Gold Tracer). I'm uncertain if I should stop leveling up my Faith by one level at 29 (Grant), or 49 (Sunlight Spear). Currently debating with myself I'm don't want to defeat the Taurus Demon any time soon. So I'm trying to pick between going through Darkroot Garden or Blighttown. Whether or not I will ever use magic.
  10. Aside from the fact that the Yellow Power Ranger no longer morphs into a man this looks bad.... In a extreme way. They just over sexualized all the characters I preferred not to be over sexualized. Though it's probably too late I'd rather have a (stoner) comedy movie revolving around Bulk, Skull, Rito Revulto, & Goldar.
  11. I feel like making a journal of my experience so far. Funny Deaths On the bridge in The Firelink Shrine where I pillaged a Ring Of Sacrifice I was afraid I didn't have enough room to jump back over. So I pressed B before I started moving as a safety precaution. My Female Thief then jumped back & fell to her death. I wasn't in the mood to kill the 3 Firebomb hollow Warriors in Undead Burg on my way back toward a Bonfire. So I ran across the bridge. For a moment I let go of B, panicked & quick pressed B again. My Female Thief then once again jumped to her death. Though this time around it reminded myself of the last Graboid in Tremors. In the Valley Of Drakes I felt the need to goofed around an Undead Dragon. I knew pillaging its stuff would awaken it so I originally didn't. I tried to get into its mouth, but an invisible wall prevented me from doing so. Then I went behind it's head toward the armpit thinking I would make a gesture like I was about to hug it. Apparently it didn't like that idea & woke up. Before it killed me I decided I had enough time to at least pillage a Soul Of A Proud Knight. I went back & intentionally lost over 14,000 Souls just so I could pillage Astora's Straight Sword & Dragon Crest Shield. Personal Goals Achieved I defeated The Black Knight in Undead Burg. Though that 3rd time wasn't my original intent. That time I just wanted to pillage the Blue Tearstone Ring it was guarding. the first 2 times I tried I had 31 in Strength. The 3rd time I had 43 Strength. I kept running away until I ultimately decided to defeat it at the Bridge where I first saw The Hellkite Dragon. I got a Black Knight Shield from this defeat but I can't do a Shield Stab like that black knight could. I farmed enough Souls to get my strength up to 46 so I can now one hand the Demon's Great Hammer. It currently does 234 damage but it's too big to wield everywhere. Current Goals Get my Faith up to 14 so I can properly wield Astora's Straight Sword. Defeat Haval The Rock who can currently kill me with one blow. Defeat Undead Dragon in the Valley Of The Drakes. Upgrade my weapons & armor. Current Weapon(s) I'm using One of the various Battle Axes I got from farming Souls. My dislikes with Dark Souls so far. Not being able to sell all of these so called "rare" drops. I have enough of the same weapons & armor for a small army. Having to restore my Human form so I can kindle bonfires. I killed myself after being told I was being invaded. It was probably an NPC. But I'm not in the mood to have other Online Players bother me.
  12. A lot of these games are in The Humble Weekly Bundle I bought back on May 31st 2013. Also I think Humble Bundle is getting worse; Not better. The more they expand the more they repeat previous offers.
  13. I haven't had a Sad Affleck Moment yet. However before defeating The Asylum Demon I had a lot of Hero Boy Moments.
  14. This movie is an immature journey & I loved it!
  15. This has become my favorite R Rated Comic Book Movie. This has become my favorite Comic Book Movie. This.... couldn't get into my top 5 favorite R Rated movies even if it tried. And that list will probably grow until I'm sure Deadpool couldn't get into my top 10 R Rated Movies.
  16. I may or may not preorder this. I like Benedict & Toby. But I feel like I have a lot already to spend time on if I wanted to.
  17. I think I'll stick to Hammerfell in ESO.... Even if the character creation were amazing it looks like it lacks bestial races. Beyond that I don't think its coming to PS4.
  18. Part of me is willing to at least pay $15 for The Crew. Part of me is willing to spend $75 for "66% off up to any three Ubisoft titles in the Humble Store coupon (excludes certain items)". But I have no real interest in Tom Clancy. Overall I'm dissatisfied with the lack of Steam Keys. And I will wait till the remaining games are revealed before considering.
  19. I remember hearing about this guy on Extra Credits. Turtle Ships definitely look amazing.
  20. That Taxi Driver better not mistake Deadpool for some Dumb Hick From Wisconsin....
  21. According to GameSpot articles that happened within seven days. Xbox One Likely Won't Be Microsoft's Last Console, Exec Says Nintendo Won't "Abandon" Wii U Fanbase, President Says 3DS Is "Here to Stay," Nintendo Exec Says I'm probably making a big deal out of nothing. But it makes me wonder how bad is Microsoft & Nintendo doing if they have to answer these types of questions. I still expect myself to buy an Xbox One a month before The 4th Gen Xbox. And I'm still interested in the mystery that is The Nintendo NX.
  22. I tried getting back into anime. Kill La Kill tends to grab my interest. Then I remember I'm probably way too old to be staring at underage anime chicks. I try to move on to different niches such as furry fandom. Outside of putting some tags on some pics & flash I haven't gotten into the furry community yet. I've gone completely cold turkey on Sports Entertainment & Comics. For Sports Entertainment it was because I was tired of John Cena & Kurt Angle. For Comics it was because I wasn't interested in The New 52 & Marvel Now. I think that the only thing main stream I do is probably video games. Well, that & the movie theater. But I'm cutting out PG-13 movies as they feel more like an obligation instead of a want.
  23. I probably won't see this next year. I'm getting to a point where I'm tired of going to the theaters for PG-13 movies. This looks like it could be interesting though.
  24. I upgraded this PC to windows 10 just in case I wanted Hololens. Still it makes me miss the desktop customization I had with 7 & XP. Having my photos as an "app" feels like I'm invading my own privacy. I was able to save enough money for a Steam Machine preorder this month! Still it probably doesn't help that its made by Alienware. But at least I don't have to worry about Gabe's fear of Windows 8. Just everyone else's fears that Gabe will charge for Mods.
