@AnimeDefender: I know the difference between hard and punishing. I was joking earlier. It's a Dark Souls joke where people say "if it's not punishing, it's not Dark Souls."

Anyway, I do agree with you. It sounds like that mechanic where you lose max health every time you die in hollow form would really put a wrench in the game's trial and error philosophy.

@Acura_Max: I do hope they can tone the punishing by alot.

But then it wouldn't be Dark Souls!

I have confidence that they will be able to balance everything out. The series has a reputation for being hard, but fair.

@AnimeDefender: Dark Souls only has a single player mode and in that mode, people can invade your world to kill or help. Yep, the game is really punishing. The first boss, for example, has the ability to summon other players to kick your ass =P

On a random note, Conan O'Brian went to a stripper club in his review of GTA V and it was awesome.

@AnimeDefender: Did you hear about the new Dark Souls II feature? They are really sticking it to the players this time. To think that people were worried that a new developer would mean an easier game. Now people are complaining that the game might too hard. Here's the info if you did hear about it:

  • White phantoms now have a limited time tether to the host's world. How long this is and if there are any variables are as yet unknown, but what this basically means is ganking will be harder to do, since an invader could just wait it out until the host's partner(s) despawns. I imagine this will reinforce summoning at the boss fog gates rather than by the bonfire since the phantoms are on a time limit.
  • Dying in hollow form will cause your health to decrease each time. Think Demon's Souls system of halving the player's health in soul form on a smaller scale (unless dying enough consecutively causes your health bar to pretty much get to a minimum threshold where it is barely visible). You may think, "oh great, now I have to be in human form and be prone to invasions if I want full health." Well, about that......
  • You can now be invaded in both human and hollow form. Yes, the one crutch from being in the less than pleasant skin complexion mode has now been removed. This will no doubt encourage people to stay in human form, except I'm sure the items for reversing hollowing will be in limited supply.
  • There's a covenant currently named 'Way of Blue' that allows a blue phantom to be summoned to a host's world to fight off a red invader phantom. I don't think it's been made clear whether the members are the hosts or the blue phantoms (perhaps the blue phantom is simply an NPC).

@AnimeDefender: The Evil Within looks amazing. I'm glad that it will be on the PS3. I won't be able to get the PS4 for while and it's nice to know that some good games will still be streaming out.

Viewer discretion advised and yes, this band still exists today.

I found another cool card. It's one of those super rare cards and it's sadly not mine.

Well, his SSJ3 Goku vs Ichiryuu thread got 17 pages of comments in about a week. The guy's just doing what works when it comes to getting responses to his threads.

@Daniel_Newton: But then I would have to pick between Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess and Link to the Past.
