Why not play us?
Childhood pictures redeem, clean and so serene
See myself without ruining lines
Whole days throwing sticks into streams

I have crawled so far sideways
I recognise dim traces of creation

Run towards Taurus Demon, wait for attack, roll under legs, hit it in the back a few times, rinse and repeat, although once in a while he will throw a different attack, in which case you should run away and then rinse and repeat strategy above. Works well with Katana or Zweihander (assuming you have enough Str). This game took 160 hours to beat, in two tries (first go 110 hours, gave up, sold game; rebought game six months later, took 50 hours, worst boss was Firesage Demon). :D

Just make a list of rules for yourself. Can lead to some fun times eg.:

. If given the choice, always turn left.
. If it moves, hit it
. If it sparkles, hit it
. Real men charge in
. Shields are for people who get hit ie. weak :roll:
. Fire heals you
. Running in circles increases damage
. Jumping increases damage
. Every boss has a weak point, just inside its mouth, stand your ground!

YOU DEFEATED!

You've still got a hard road ahead of you but travelling it's going to be fun. Looking forward to next week's session. Keep it up.

Oh bum, I missed it! Watched it last week (after the event) and, apart from the all too graphic mental image of Tamoor's poo breaks, I really enjoyed it.

Always been intrigued by Dark Souls but never been man enough to tackle it. Hopefully you'll go on to play something else where I'll be able to give some helpful insight.

Great series. Keep it up. We appreciate you staying late at "work" :lol:
