    Wait what?

    If you idle with that Cat Covenant Ring, then you'll be invading people's worlds and they'll be the ones getting souls, not you.

    How does this work?
    He means this

    If you die while invading, you don't lose anything. However, if the Host of the world you're invading happens to die for any reason, you get credit for it, and a bunch of souls.

    So basically you just sit there with the covenant ring on, invade a bunch of people one by one, and hope that they die before you die. If they do, you get the souls and humanity for it.

    Ohh

    I can see how that might be a problem for some hosts if you invade them, because sometimes you'll spawn right next to some monsters and stuff.

    Fucking Ornstein and Smough.
    If I do anything other than block and walk away I get punished super hard.
    What the fuck do I do?
    I'm afraid of going human and seeing if there's any summon signs because anal rodeo seems like a hotspot for invasions

    Block and walk away.

    Only times you should attack is when Ornstein is quite far from Smough, get a few hits in then leg it. Repeat until he's dead, then take down Smough (that's how I did at least).

    Well, My Witch playthrough is finished. I just need to do a few minor things in New Game Plus before i make myself a new character.

    Going to make something that isnt so fragile. And a Darkwraith. Because i havent been given the armor or the sword yet. By then i should have the slabs to finish up upgrading stuff.

    Edit: And i have a lot of spare junk in my box too. If i find any newbies. I know what im doing when i invade them.

    For gamers wondering why the developers have gone with Games for Windows Live over Steamworks for online connectivity, it turns out that Namco Bandai requested this of From Software. A Namco Bandai representative points to an already established server used in the Xbox 360 version of Dark Souls as one of the reasons for going with GFWL, but says that final specs and distribution details have yet to be determined. Stay tuned -- things could change.
    Thanks Namco!!

    Edited:

    At least they are aware of the issue. I fully expected them to not give a eff and just get the game out.

    I suppose Steamworks would work better.

    Capra Demon is a Dick in New Game Plus, 100k souls lost to him and his dogs. (Then again, 10 vitality)

    I hope there's mod support for the PC verson. Who wouldnt want wondering Black Knights and enemys in different locations?

    Ehhh... 50/50. Its good yet bad that there's no Mod Support.

    But, there is allways one person that manages to tweak the game. I like a bit of a random factor when it comes to enemys. Maybe a theif here and there outside where the Capra Demon is.

    Direly hope they change to Steamworks, at least some time after release, but if it doesn't happen i'll probably still get it and hope that this so-called "GFWL" works for me. And if it doesn't work, i'd probably try seeking a refund, since it's not suitable for purpose.

    This boss gave me so much trouble. Eventually, what I did was kill Smough first, which is harder to do since Ornstein is the one who gets all up in your grill, but I think Ornstein's super form is way easier to kill. Just stay in between his legs and get in one or two hits, then run away when he tries to butt slam. I feel the need to repeat "one or two hits"; I died way too many times on this boss because I got too greedy instead of playing it cool.

    Also, yeah, I had to do this boss hollow because I got invaded nonstop and that was pretty fudging annoying.

    Well my nippon isn't exactly perfect but to me it looks like he's referring to general quality rather than 720p (could be texture resolution too not sure) and the "won't be running 60FPS" seems to be referring to the engine problems the game has, so while it's capable of running 60FPS it might dip lower.

    I wonder how that'll work out with our characters...

    Isn't time weird in Dark Souls? Like teaming up with my best friend Witch Beatrice even though she's already dead. And I know Solaire mentions something about it.

    If I remember correctly, co-op is made possible because of time distortion (If I remember correctly, that's what Solaire says when he gives you the White Soapstone), and the game leaves it at that.

    Yeah, and the description even says

    In Lordran, the flow of time is distorted,
    and the White Sign Soapstone allows
    Undead to assist one another.

    As mentioned before, maybe Seath took some time away from his test tubes to discover the meaning behind the "Amazing Chest"?

    Also, should Seath have worn specs or do those not exist in Dark Souls?

    Of course. What am i, Some kind of Scientifically modified-Ninja-Boar?

    I can allways change the armor to say, Classic Boar to Golem Boar. Or anything inbetween.

    Alright, invading at the church. If i find your a newbie by your achivements. I'll give you stuff to make your life easyer and let you kill me because im such a friendly guy. If your not a newbie however. I'll attempt to kill you. Im having a minor clear out of junk basicly.

    Someone thought i was trying to lure him into a trap, so i had to bring the items to him. He belived me at the end. I think it has something to do with the Boar Head.

    What's the point of even saying this. If you don't want it, don't use it. That's like saying you don't want a certain option in the options menu because you don't think you will use it. OPTIONS are always good, so long as they stay OPTIONAL.

    The interface won’t be redone, keyboard and mouse support will be minimal so gamepads are heavily recommended, and there won’t be new graphics settings.

    Y'know, even if mouse and keyboard is allegedly minimal, I hope the "minimal" includes fully-rebindable keys, which is what minimal support for PC should be, otherwise it ain't fit for purpose. That and adjustable FOV, though that applies mostly to first-person shooters.

    They're gonna have to do a lot of bugfixing after release; having a good game be given a crappy PC port is a big mishmash of horrible bugs such as no FOV slider, minimal support for mouse and keyboard, and the list goes on.

    Also, addressing concerns of tricky to navigate things like the Great Hollow and the Crystal Caves, perhaps having a toggleable "walk" button that slows your regular speed down to a normal walk, similar to a Sprint button, would help fulfill the functions usually fulfilled by a thumbstick? I may not know much about console controllers, but I know how in some console games the speed of the character depends on how far you move the stick on the controller bound to moving around, with the other stick being for the camera view or whatnot. (remind me, is left-stick the one most use for camera control or is it the right-stick that does that?)

    I thought the point of a PC port was so that you could play it on PC, you know, for the people who don't have consoles. It would be nice if it had all of the standard features, but it really isn't the end of the world if it doesn't
