In other news, I've learned today that backing the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter apparently earned me a free Steam copy of The Bard's Tale (the 2004 version), so I'll be playing that in the next few days.

Started Bastion last night. Everything about it immediately turned me off. I thought I'd like the narrator, and I think I expected more of a stylized spaghetti western feel. Also though the controls were very clumsy. Should I be playing with a gamepad?

Pad is better, but it was hardly critical to me. It only out stays its welcome on harder difficulties, try just muddling through it has some lovely moments.I am once again writing a blog, vaguely about playing games the wrong way

hum. I'm generally not fond of third person shooters (except for a few; Just Cause 2 and RF Armageddon are fine, for example) and I've probably been spoiled by all the Far Cry 2 I've been playing lately, but Spec Ops: The Line feels very ... disembodied, like I'm not quite connected to my character. And checkpoint saves can go rot...
Still interested in the story, but I don't think I can play it through. This is the sort of game I'd in the past turn god mode on in, just to see what happens, but such cheats are apparently not part of gaming anymore.

Just remember: Always upgrade your weapon before your character.
And the respawning enemies aren't too bad. Especially because you should rarely ever be backtracking (on foot :p). The layout of the world is good enough that you'll almost always have a shortcut back to a (comparatively) safe area. And once you get the Lordvessel, you can warp between bonfires at key locations.
Unless you are specifically seeking an item, I suggest not exploring until after Anor Londo. At that point, you can warp between bonfires so the hikes between areas will be minimal.

What the hell,you can upgrade weapon ?! Didn't know that for sure.. Looks like i really need to check out DS wiki.
Could you give me some general tips,even as i put 7 hours in to a game i didn't come far because i stopped at one position and grinded for several hours lol. I'm in the location where you meet first black knight if that sounds familiar. I'm level 19 so far,i bought everything chained at the merchant and have black shield(picture)and 95dmg axe(plus 83dmg mace).

Finished Ass.Creed 3 last night and quite liked the story. the characters (Conor, the protagonist, is a bit boring though) and the running/fighting/sneaking mechanics. I think they are an improvement over the previous title.
The world is also fun to run in and look at the vistas.
However, for some reason, Ubisoft decided to pad the game with pointless open world tropes, like staff to collect and things to craft, that don't affect the game at all or give some advantage later on (the game is not getting harder as you progress, which is also a downside). The worst of the them is the crafting/trading mechanics. You can craft and trade dozens of useless object for a small profit. However, the interface is so broken and unclear that I just ignored it completely...
And the naval fighting was surprisingly great, even if a bit out of place in an assassination game.
Next on the list:
Kingdoms of Amalur and Grey matter, with short bursts of serious Sam 3 and Orcs must die 2 (my only purchases in the current steam sale, so far) Between them.

Yeah, I have one. Stop farming and go kill the boss already, damnit. You've pretty much locked yourself in a tiny part of the whole game.

1. Don't grind unless you have a specific goal in mind. And even then, you probably shouldn't grind
2. Avoid over-leveling, at least on your first run. The game will be a lot easier if you use white sign helper monkeys for the bosses until you learn the style of gameplay (assuming no restarts, I would say around Anor Londo)
3. When in doubt, upgrade your weapon instead of your character. Largely for the purpose of 2, but you'll also notice a MUCH bigger improvement in damage. Survivability goes either way
4. When upgrading, try to stick to the basic chain (so out to +15) in most cases. Those scale a lot better AND can be enchanted with spells or items.
5. Try to carry a divine weapon, fire weapon, non-elemental, and lightning weapon whenever possible (only really viable around Anor Londo). It is up to you as to what you want to use in general (depending on the build, I usually use the non-elemental weapon as my default and switch to the appropriate element when needed)
6. Do NOT save up souls. Seriously. As long as you avoid over-leveling, you'll always have a good spot to grind for some fast souls (around 19 I would suggest marking summons for Gargoyles or Capra). And carrying souls means you'll be more distraught when you die. Being distraught when you die means you fight your way back to your corpse. FIghting your way back to your corpse probably means you make a mistake and die. And the game laughs at you. This will happen a lot in Blighttown. Fear Blighttown...
7. Try to only reverse hollowing when you absolutely need to. The PC version in particular has a LOT of dicks who like to spam invade (and there are a few who I suspect have found a way to reset the summon countdown seeing as how I was invaded by the same jerk 4 times in 6 minutes in Anord Londo...)
8. Always carry a bow or crossbow (if you have crap dex somehow). They are insanely useful for kiting enemies.
9. Don't worry too much about buying the best gear. Pretty much all the gear has a use (and the starting equipment is some of the best :p), and you'll probably want to swap out for some areas anyway. Again, upgrading.
10. I can't think of a 10, but I realized I should have 10 around 7. OOH. If you can't find a good use for souls, either upgrade your pyromancy flame or buy as much titanite as you can carry (you can never have too much). Both of which are actually really good uses :p
