    I doubt that Avatar needed any sequels.
    I can imagine them being set in the same universe.
    But I just don't see how Pandora can continue being a place of interest.

    My experience with retrieving my Souls & Humanity has had it always appearing on a flat non-moving surface. In the case of the elevator in Blight Town they appear right before getting onto the elevator.
    In the case of bottomless falls I have & seen others fall to their deaths. This is because the way you retrieve your Souls & Humanity also doubles as a way for other players to see how you died.
    I think the only way you could permanently lose your Souls & Humanity is if you died again before you could retrieve them. The way the games saves it always remembers what you were doing before you quit. So if you quit the game surrounded by dead bodies you will reload that game surrounded by dead bodies.
    Personal Goals Achieved
    My Endurance is at 40 Soft Cap My Vitality is at 50 Soft Cap Going back to The Catacombs to collect the Great Scythe Remembering to wear the Crimson armor set in The Great Hollow Finally visited Ash Lake Killing Basilisks & Mushroom Parents was pretty slow. So slow that I rather not try to fight The Hydra at Ash Lake yet.
    More boring Personal Goals
    Getting my Strength back up to 46 so I can one hand the Demon's Great Hammer again See if I need to raise Dexterity with any of the weapon I have collected Recollect a lot of items in the area of Blight Town I was avoiding

    Screenplay not by Stephen King, it might work out.  Should be R rated, though, that's more appropriate.   I dunno, Tim Curry made the last movie/series enjoyable.  I don't know if they're going to have as memorable Pennywise as his is.

    I'll probably be buying more games this year than I have in the past 3. I've been a 3-5 game a year type of player for almost a decade now. After PS3, I kind a lost hype in console gaming. I got a 360 because thats what all my friends had, and I main played MW1&2 and BFBC2. Sure I played Borderlands, but outside of that there wasn't much. Oh there was Mass Effect. I didn't get hyped for Gamecube, but I absolutely needed one after I played Metroid Prime at Babbages, back when that was a thing. I think I enjoyed GC more than 360 because of the games rather than playing with friends.
    Right now I'm getting lost in the world of Zelda: BOTW. I can't play more than one game at once unless its GW2. It's hard for me to play multiple games. I'll be done with BoTW before Mass Effect comes out. If I'm done early enough, I'll pick up NeiR: Automata, and get Horizon Zero Dawn after I'm done with Mass Effect. After that it's probably Mario Odyssey, and pending on a ton of info, Destiny 2. I'm sure that list may grow after E3. I don't see God of War coming out this year, GW2's Expansion, nor Death Stranding.

    For me the earliest time I would get extremely picky about what games I would or wouldn't want goes back to my N64 years. Also known as my disgruntled Nintendo Fan Boy Years as a lot of the games I would've wanted for the N64 were exclusive to Sony's PlayStation. Most of the games I would own for the N64 in my mind had to define me as a Bad Ass. Most since fighting undead in LoZ:OoT's Graveyard scared me. And playing Shadow Man was enough to convince me to play Harvest Moon 64.
    When Game Cube replaced the N64 I thought I was done with console gaming. I had for awhile had a Gameboy Advance which I lost interest in after losing or having my copy of Driver for it stolen. I didn't trust myself with CDs. And I had grown to hate other Nintendo Fan Boys who were willing declare (almost) any game not on a Nintendo platform to suck.
    I threw away my N64 when it broke & gave my GBA to my sister. Thus my life as a gamer comes to an end as I move on to things that make me happy; like giant robots.
    Then Steel Battalion fox Xbox happens. I didn't have the money to get the green button controller. I would later end up with the blue button controller from money I got when my paternal grandmother unfortunately died. Thus turning me into an Xbox Fan Boy until Xbox 360 came along & didn't have backwards compatibility for Steel Battalion & by extension the Steel Battalion controller because it didn't have a certain Xbox 360 controller chip.
    For awhile I would own a Wii. Because deep down I didn't want Nintendo to fail. And I tried to consider the Wii "exercise equipment". I eventually lost interest in Wii after Blu-Ray defeated HD-DVD & I ended up buying a PS3. I think part of it was just not wanting to wait for controllers to recharge. That & probably hating Nintendo Fan Boys for backing things I hate like DS & Wii U.
    My owning a PS3 would eventually lead to a extremely different problem. Having too many games I was willing to buy, pre-order culture, & not having enough room on my PS3. Thus starting the events where my Games Hype Radar to implode at least twice. First time when I got rid of a bunch of T Rated Games. Second time I got rid of a bunch of M Rated Games. I would eventually (re)buy some wrestling games, but those were intended as a reason to not buy future wrestling games.
    I think plenty of the games I would've bought were simply replaced by PS Home.
    When "free" games would eventually happen for PlayStation Plus, I started subscribing to that. And when Xbox 360 started doing something similar with Games With Gold I bought a refurbished Xbox 360 so I could subscribed to that.
    If it weren't for Elder Scrolls Online, You're Next, PS4's Perfect Day Commercial, & Brill Gold-Blood who I created specifically for PS4's ESO I wouldn't own a PS4. Also PS Home shutting down played some factor into me wanting ESO on PS4. My Games Hype Radar would eventually shrink down to the ability to create Animalized Characters in T or M Rated games once I played Star Trek Online & eventually Neverwinter since it has Dragonborn as DLC.
    I have been losing hype for ESO every time I end up spending over $100 a month in it. If Zenimax Online wasn't so greedy I would spend more time than money in ESO. Sure there are other MMOs I could play on PC or the PS4. But I don't enjoy those as much as I do ESO.
    Recently with the plausibility that I will buy a Nintendo Switch for portable Skyrim my Games Hype Radar has been coincidentally fluctuating a lot over games I would or wouldn't buy for PS4.
    ESO Morrowind - I'll probably pre-order it in May or buy it with crowns when it releases. Either way I'm not happy about getting any Crown Crates or Crown Gems from this. Elite Dangerous - Much like Sim City 4 this is purely because Yahtzee recommended over a different game. Which is why I shouldn't buy it. Because all it will do is cause me to be a Smug Hipster. IF I were to buy it, it would either be a pre-order or before No Man's Sky became free. Tekken 7 - Customizing King, Armor King, etcetera in Tekken 6 was awesome. However it sucked in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Injustice 2 - Like DCUO, No Lobo = No Interest. It however has a customizable Cheetah. But she has a human face. Agents Of Mayhem - I liked Saints Row. If I could put them in a certain order 2 & 3 would be tied for first followed by 4, 1, then finally Gat Out Of Hell. I really expect AOM to be worse than GOOH. Mass Effect: Andromeda - If Quarians & Asari didn't look human or if the original trilogy allowed Male Shepard to romance a Female Turian I wouldn't be mad at Mass Effect even with that choose your sacrifice ending. After all if I wanted to romance another being with a human face I wouldn't be playing video games. As for Future Console Hype I expect that to die down about as fast as my Hype for Xbox One. This is due to mods for consoles being less than mods for PC. Doubts that Nintendo Switch will change Sony or Microsoft. And the fact that AO Rated games will never be accepted on to consoles.... You know.... Because think of the children.... Who will watch a statue of a nude boy pissing while Kratos bangs some hot chick off screen.... In his quest to get revenge for the wife & child he murdered.... Family Fun Entertainment.

    I think I might've gotten more done with Mjoll in 37:22:55 than Jenny in 99:56:01.... Or not as there are certain places I have avoided as Mjoll. Like an entire area of Blight Town that leads up to a locked door to the Depths. At least 2 Bonfires when counting the other one in Blight Town & the one guarded by a Black Knight in Darkroot Basin. In fact I haven't killed any Black Knights as Mjoll.
    Oh well on to personal goals achieved.
    Defeated Maneater Midred (again). Raised both Elite Knight Set & Thief Set with Titanite & Large Titanite (found killing Leeches in Blight Town). I don't know what I'll do with my Titanite Chunks. I also raise the Hunter Set I found in Dark Root Basin with Titanite. I have finally explored Lower Undead Burg. It's a lot smaller than I thought it would be. Freed some guy who was locked in a room. He now appears at Firelink Shrine & still in the room in Undead Burg. Found the Undead Female Merchant who sells Humanity. Unlocked both shortcuts to Lower Undead Burg. Gotten my Endurance up to 30. Had a hard time defeating a Knight from The Clan Of Forrest Protectors. Got the Eastern Armor Set & decided to not go back through the Crest Of Artorias door for a long time. Went to The Catacombs & found out that Astora's Straight Sword can prevent Necromancers from resurrecting Skeletons. Killed the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, & 5th Necromancers. I have left the 6th Necromancer live for now. Murdered a Crystal Lizard that gave me the final 2 pieces on Twinkling Titanite I needed to fully upgrade Astora's Straight Sword. Left The Catacombs after finding a spell I won't use, Tranquil Walk Of Peace. Awkward Deaths (Technically died more than this but those were more Obvious than Awkward.)
    This one doesn't belong to me but that 4th Necromancer unintentionally committed suicide. I did get myself killed by the Armored Tusk & some Hollows when I well down near it. Second time around I killed all the Hollows & was able to escape fighting the Armored Tusk. I fell off the Elevator twice when leaving Blight Town. First Time looking in the wrong direction panicking, falling when I assumed I didn't notice when to get off. Second when I tried to get off too soon. I got myself killed by the Capra Demon when a gut feeling insisted there wasn't a boss behind that fog gate in Lower Undead Burg. I went back in to get my Souls & Humanity. Then through Xbox Guide I exited the game by selecting Xbox Home. I went back into Dark Souls now back on the other side of the fog gate. I told Patches I wasn't a Cleric. He was a little late on trying to kill me when crossing a bridge. So on my way back I had Mjoll kill herself. The next question Patches asked me I answered Yes & he gave me a Humanity. I didn't have to kill Mjoll that time around if I just didn't assume that Treasure message was Fromsoftware trolling. Despite these deaths I always manage to retrieve my Souls & Humanity.
    Current Personal Goals are all boring....
    Raise my Endurance up to 40 Soft Cap. Raise my Vitality up to 50 Soft Cap. These were also the first times I unplugged my modem instead of killing Mjoll. First in Blight Town & second in The Catacombs.

    Armor is gender neutral. And there is no sexy armor as far as I know. I doubt you would want to see a Hollow in such armor if it existed in the game.
    Mini Bosses Defeated (Again)
    Havel The Rock - Yeah.... I'm too scared to go to Blight Town, The Great Hollow, or even face The Hydra at Ash Lake. I got my Vitality up to 30 & my Endurance up to 19 once the next level up would cost over 10,000 Souls. As boring as this fight looked it was a lot easier thanks to having enough Stamina to block Havel's strikes if I got hit. I got his ring. Prowling Demon at Undead Parish - Strafe Right, Attack from behind, repeat. Heavy Knight at Undead Parish - I got a Greatsword from that fight that I will probably never use. Channeler at Undead Parish - I got nothing from him. Then went upstairs to free that guy that was going to escape anyway. Oscar Knight Of Astora - Elite Knight against Elite Knight! Astora's Straight Sword against Astora's Straight Sword! Dragon Crest Shield against Crest Shield? An almost identical face off. I got his Crest Shield after defeating him. I didn't lose once to any of these mini bosses as Mjoll.
    Some items found or upgraded (Again)
    I did fully level up that Spear I bought with Titanite Shards that were rare drops. After that I eventually got some Spears that were rare drops. 2 Twinkling Titanite & some form of regular Titanite from Murdering a Crystal Lizard between Darkroot Basin & Darkroot Garden. Obviously found The Elite Knight Armor Set in Darkroot Garden which is what I was wearing when I fought Oscar. I got The Wolf Ring!.... After having to retrieve my Souls & Humanity from being killed by a Giant Stone Knight. I got The Rusted Iron Ring in Undead Asylum. I can't believe I would've gone into Blight Town without this. I had 10 in Humanity, but I dwindled it down to 3 because I didn't want to unplug my Xbox 360 from the internet or face players.
    Current Personal Goals
    Don't defeat the Armored Tusk in Undead Parish until I have The Covetous Gold Serpent Ring & 10 Humanity. Even if that means never going over there. Upgrading Armor with Titanite. Especially now that I can buy Titanite from Andre Of Astora. Maybe get back to leveling up my Endurance once I'm done leveling up Armor Sets (& maybe weapons I won't use).

    I'm guessing that Wolf Link has the same role as the dogs in BotW. So you don't have to buy the Wolf Link Amiibo in order to get that in game function.
    I have my doubts that Nintendo is getting rid of Amiibos since they made Amiibos for BotW. Especially if Switch controllers have Amiibo readers. Seems like unneeded hardware if they were.
    As for Miiverse, I never got involved in that. I don't know if no Miiverse means no Miis. But I wouldn't miss the Miis if they were gone. The Xbox Avatars look way better. And PS Home Avatars were the best looking out of the three, but they those were tied to PS Home.

    According to IGN, Amiibos aren't region locked.
    http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/11/11/nintendo-amiibos-are-not-region-locked
    Beyond that I have my doubts that Nintendo would make BotW Amiibos that'll probably work for both Wii U & Switch then cause people to buy a Switch exclusive TP Wolf Link. If the Switch version of BotW required TP in order to activate Wolf Link I could hopefully look forward to TP on the Switch.

    I have yet to actually download U Play for my previous Ubisoft Bundle because I keep hearing how bad U Play is.
    The first AC is okay. Too bad Altair can't swim.
    If Ezio never aged & was the main protagonist the whole time I'd easily recommend every AC.
    I never played AC3, but that's because I didn't care for the actual trilogy ending in the US.
    The last new AC I played was Black Flag. I never finished it because I got too obsessed with upgrading the ship which eventually became boring.

    After spoiling the good ending for myself it wasn't worth downloading again.
    The dummy hand, finger, and book you find are all worthless from what I've seen. The monster can't be killed even if you can cut off an arm. The monster can also infect you so using the axe is a bad idea. Where and how you find the handgun is pretty lame. I should've been able to get it without going through with a pointless extra step to get it. Even then the handgun is intended to push back the monster instead of killing it. This might not count but I think each carton of bullets is technically 1 bullet as they count the cartons instead of the bullets. The good ending is nothing more than a white screen followed by text stating that you escaped. I was somewhat sold on buying RE7 until I saw the good ending.

    There was always an axe that would be inside the locked drawer.
    In order to get it you had to play the video tape where you would find the lock pick on the floor through the space behind the microwave near the fridge. The drawer you would unlock would appear empty. But once you stop playing the video and go back to that drawer it would be unlocked with the axe in it.
    In the update now you no longer have to play the video to get the lock pick. You can easily spot it to your left once you have access to the basement. There is a lot of handgun ammo but I haven't found a handgun.
    Also in the 1st update the finger connects to a hand you find in the attic. To get to the attic you pull the handle in the chimney that unlocks  the hidden door. You should find in there a fuse that says stairs as long as you haven't played (or finished) the video. The hand will be hidden underneath a bunch of TVs with a message nearby.
    I don't know if the telephone has anymore use. In the First demo there was a couple of different messages. In the first update there was only one for when you picked up a key in the attic.
