Even as i am quite enjoying Risen 1,this game really failes in comparasaion with grand king Gothic 2.

On my new character, though, I'm at the same level I was before and dishing out twice as much damage with my Raw Iaito, thanks to better planning. I just beat Quelaag and someone seems to have put out the bonfire in Fire Link, so I'm struggling with the ghost clusterfuck that is New Londo right now. Dark Souls walks the fine line of difficulty attenuation so well that the repetition never feels boring, because there's still always that chance that the shitty zombies from the very first level will gang up on me and rip me to shreds the second I let my guard down — even when I kill them without a second thought 99% of the time. It makes me wonder how the inherently masochistic culture of multiplayer gaming can benefit from its ideas.

Mixed melee and magic is by far the most viable though, because fighters need heals and mages need to not die when someone gets close.

Hmm, I might try that mixed approach. I definitely enjoyed the mage training quests and I don't really like the random morons in the swamp.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Go to the giant blacksmith in Annor Londo, buy a squillion twinkling titanite, upgrade everything.

Also, if you give a shit ton of humanity to that spider woman below Quelaags lair, you will get an awesome spell. Not sure how much humanity you have to sacrifice but you are able to make pillars of fire erupt around you which pretty much kills anything that has surrounded you.
Their is certainly no shortage of things to waste souls on. I currently have 25,000 souls at risk at the start of Tomb of the Giants which is just enough for me to get another SL. Trouble is, I have to go on a massive walk from the previous bonfire in Catacombs to rescue them...not looking forward to attempting that.

(Loved pOnd and Majesty of Colors; Don't Look Back I didn't love so much, but it brought me face-to-face with my inability to switch off my platformer jump-adjustment reflexes, which was mechanically much more interesting).

Along those lines, I just finished the King's Quest 2 Fan Remake.
Their first remake was good, their third remake was alright and struck me as sufficiently King's Questy, but the second one? Brrrr. It was, as they say, dire. Complete reworking of most of the major characters and addition of a completely noncanon SERIES-SPANNING THOUSAND-YEAR-OLD MAIN VILLAIN (who sounds like a 17-year-old) leave me feeling rather uncharitable towards it. I feel like I need to play the original King's Quest 2 sometime to cleanse my palate.
There was a particularly comedic flash-forward I enjoyed in spite of myself, though. =P
In my post-"Romancing The Stones" depression I went and bought Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, and am playing through that with Mrs. Berzee now. I will read the John Walker Eurogamer retrospective of it once I beat it.

Ultima Online -
Probably sounds a little weird but...
I know there are still some of us out there; the old school Ultima Online veterans, one of my favorite gaming experiences ever. Probably still my favorite MMO ever.
A couple months ago something reignited my interest in the game and I went out just looking at info about where the game was at etc. I messed with the official demo and didn't like it as it didn't sync up with my memories of the game (as nostalgia is want to do it blurred my vision of whatever the current game is).
I found in my searching that there is a pretty vibrant community of player run servers out there for almost all the time frames of the game. For me my best times were the end of the vanilla game and into the Second Age expansion. I happened to also find a server that was just getting launched and offering a fresh start, as a player that was getting fresh back in it seemed like a good deal.
The server has been live for a couple weeks now and is off to a great start. It is well maintained and has had almost perfect uptime; the admin is active and has been very receptive to the player feedback on tweaking small things (loot tables, vendor prices etc).
If you are interested or ever had an interest in Ultima Online and want to get a taste of what it was like (in what I consider to be the best time period of the game) check outhttp://www.uoimmortalis.com/ and log on. Free to play and the D/L of the client shouldn't take more than a couple hours. You will find people on the forums and in game willing and able to help newcomers.

Thanks for the UO tip, I'm going to try that out (if my attention span holds up)! I missed UO the first time around and when I eventually got a free trial I wasn't able to make it work on my machine.

Not played UO in years, such fond memories :) It's a shame that MMO's decided to follow the EQ evolution path rather than UO's nice skill system ("Levels" always felt fake to me... You mean I'm now MUCH stronger than I was 5 seconds ago?)
Every time I try to go back to UO though I tend to bounce back off it, so I've consigned it to fond nostalgia :)Yes, I update the below link frequently on a whisky fuelled rampage. I regret nothing.
