Dark Souls III :D

Been dicking around in SL 120 dueling. I've gotta say, it's fun as hell. I finished my first playthrough a few months ago, but used all my embers too fast and was too lazy to throw down my summon sign every time I wanted to be tanky again. I started a new character recently and have been ZOOMING through the game, only on a 2nd playthrough. The 1st playthrough really lets you experience all of the death tolls, losses, surprise, and sacrifice you have to make just to barely get by, so playing my 2nd playthrough so soon after finishing the first is a huge contrast. The game is still interestingly difficult, mind you, but now I don't waste as many resources.

Compared to Dark Souls II where Human Effigies were everywhere and Rings of Sacrifice could be repaired, being Hollow was not a thing... at all. Dark Souls III, however, reeeaaally makes you play carefully, or else.

I started both characters the same way: Pyromancer, get a cheese-kill on The Master with the katana next to Firelink. That weapon goes a long way. For reference, I pumped about 20-ish Vigor, 27 Vitality, 20 dex, 20 Endurance, and 24 Strength before I switched away from that katana. I did this all just before I fought Pontiff Sulyvahn. 24 Strength and 20 dex are the requirements to use the Exile Greatsword, which is a fantastic weapon all around. Kind of slow, but its Skill is fast, and striking the ground causes an AOE stagger shockwave (with no damage) that really comes in handy when you can't quite get close enough. Now I've just beat Aldrich. It's all going quite quickly and I've decided just to grind up to 120 for duels. I should probably finish the story with this character so that I can actually use some of the better weapons in the game, but I'm still having fun. I manage to get pretty decent kills with sub-optimal weapons/builds just so those mechanics actually see use.

I got pokemon moon a few days back as an early early christmas present. It's the first time I've played in like 7-8 years, and I'm having fun basking in nostalgia. A bit darker than I remember pokemon being though.

Pokemon Moon's pokedex entry for Umbreon:

With its black fur, it blends into the darkness. It bides its time, and when prey appears, this Pokemon goes for its throat, and then eats it.

Right now I am playing Bob the Robber, the small flash game, found here http://www.friv2online.com/ . It's very challenging. You should be smart and fast at the same time.

I just finished Last of Us. I have Dark Souls, Crysis 2 and Lego LOTR for PS3 in the queue.

Plus I bought Overwatch and got Don't Starve and Kerbal Space Program for Christmas and my birthday.

I have lots of gaming ahead of me.

I am terrible at From Software games. Having got about 0.5% of the way through Demonses's Souls, and dabbled with a friend's Bloodborne, I went and splashed out on a second-hand copy of Dark Souls III with the intent that I will learn and master the game. Sure enough, after watching several tutorials online in defeating the first boss, I finally managed it, and completed the tutorial. Now I'm stuck, mere footsteps past the end of the tutorial. I just keep getting killed and killed and killed. I'm much better with mouse+keyboard than I am with twin sticks, so I might see if I can get a cheap deal on a PC version at some point. Either way, I suck at these impossigames so hard.

The Last of Us was pure brilliance.

I wish I could play The Last of Us without waiting for a ROM version. But I really can't justify the expense of even an outdated console since I can't think of any other games I'd want it for.

It was pretty great. Loved the story, and liked the gameplay a lot.

Since Heroes of the Storm went 2.0 it's represented about 90% of my gaming. It's surprising to me that a 'loot box' update would make me MORE interested in a game.
