The above is my character from Dark Souls (named Leon after the Resident Evil protagonist) about to go take on the final boss of the game. I really regret not sticking to this game when it was new and fresh and discovering its secrets with everyone who was playing. But on the bright side, playing it a year after Dark Souls came out did make my time with the game easier.
I went for a greatsword build with medium weight after watching YouTuber OverTheGun decimate everything in his path in his Let’s Play Dark Souls videos (highly recommended watch!). I decided to substitute the Zweihander with a Claymore since it is faster and still has a decent reach. At this point in the game, everything goes down in one or two hits when two-handing the Claymore. I am open to recommendations for better equipment/build though!
Current equipment list:
I’m thinking of raising strength to 40 next to make use of the Claymore’s scaling. Final build link.
Can’t wait for New Game +, Dark Souls 2 and being able to play the game on PC. Apparently you can do silly mods like the following!

All in all, it feels like Arc System Works put a lot of effort into this new version. I hope that the new moves didn’t break the balance too badly.
From what I’ve seen of Jin so far, he looks to be more than decent this time around. He was never truly bad but it is nice to see your character do well 😀
Here’s a list of the changes for Jin and some thoughts.
Now if only the console version could get here before Evolution ’13. One can always dream~
You may have heard of the hashtag #1reasonwhy that has been making its way through Twitter. I’ve been thinking about posting this to Twitter, but since I am not directly involved with game design I’ve decided to post this here instead. For a bit of context, I used to participate in the local Blazblue community regularly and have attended tournaments including Evo 2012. There are multiple reasons why:
On the plus side, the overwhelming majority of the people that I have met through gaming are not like that and it is absolutely worthwhile to get out there and support your favourite games.
I hope that this spark of discussion will bring this problem to light for those who were not aware of it.
I play a Slayer in Tera Online and figured I’d compile a list of tips for new dungeon Slayers as some have helped me out immensely in runs. I run around as Percy.Theodore on the Valley of Titans server.
I have not fully cleared Balder’s Temple Hard Mode yet! Soon! Have cleared BTHM a few times now 😀 On to Kelsaik Hard Mode!
Slayers are very mana dependent given that your DPS will come from using your skills. Here are a few ways to keep your mana up during fights:
You should be able to continuously use your skills without having to rely on Combo Attack to refill your mana by doing the above.
