    Oh, can you not use the Black Eye Orb after beating the bros? That's a shame in a few ways. It was a fun fight. And it's nice to relight Firelink Shrine or at least get a keeper soul to buff your...

    Interesting. I guess we'll have to experiment. In principle I like the idea of gradual hollowing better than DS the first's human/hollow binary plus a stock of humaness that does... something? It...

    How's the dingy set working out? It looked pretty good, but I've stuck with the pyromancer robes.

    You don't necessarily need a divine weapon. I've just run through the catacombs relying on the...

    I've been playing offline since getting invaded by greifers early on, so it's just npc summons for me. I'm regretting that decision now, the ghosts and messages were pretty cool. I do plan to play...

    The sword's moveset is the straight sword mix of thrusts and slashes that make the claymore so great. It's nice and fast, doesn't eat too much stamina, and has good reach. Base damage is average with...

    I seem to be on a roll now. I got through O&S on my second attempt, without a summon. I was pretty surprised by that. Powered up pyromancies are boss.

    I did just get all three of those buffs. Flash sweat sounded especially useful, but turned out to be totally unnecessary between a +7 claymore and Prolar Bear's advice to summon Mildred. I likely...

    Thanks Prolar Bear, that's some helpful advice. I haven't decided on STR or DEX yet. I was thinking DEX because not enough games have spears, but I'm not so sure now.

    I don't expect pyromancy to...

    I just ran in while hollowed, more for reconnaissance than a serious attempt. The +5 claymore was hitting for maybe 45 damage. I don't trust myself to go without making critical errors long enough...

    I also went to see Toad first. Based on the mirror I thought Lawrence was already dead, while it sounded like Toad's call ended forcefully. I thought he might be in trouble (and he was!). I was...

    I strongly endorse Stalker Complete for CoP. It's the pinnacle of the Stalker series in my view. CoP is the best game and Complete makes it better.

    The Misery mod is intriguing in principle. In...

    My approaches certainly don't eliminate the speedbumps that the checkpoints keep throwing in your face. I just thought I'd share a way to reduce the hassle from time to time. It seemed...

    I don't blame the game for my impatience and foolish stubbornness regarding the Asylum Demon. That was all me.

    Catacombs seems to be the more typical novice problem. I figured the bell down...
