  • didn't want to spam up the "what you playin thread"

    the combat is really clunky at first, but it really steps it's game up once you figure out how to use signs and stuff to it's full effect. In general terms, Quen is the best and always use it because you can beat even super-high-level guys if you can read their attacks and dodge and have the Quen sign mastered as well. It's also pretty easy to customize too. Like I have my fire one customized so it's a bit more combat viable; I don't really bother with the others because it doesn't suit my playstyle, but they can be boosted quite a bit as well. It just takes some getting used to. There's more of an emphasis on dodging and then hitting rather trying to hit through stuff; if you get block your guy will recoil a lot and it will be HARD to recover. stuff like that. there's also a lot of detail in bigger enemies which is something a lot of people like.

    combat aside I think the story and the world is what really makes the game good, but that's just me. Are you out of White Orchard yet? The game starts picking up about halfway through your first main "quest". It's also a very good idea to go around and read ALL OF THE SIGNPOSTS immediately when you get access to a region because the sidequests are super fun.

    also, the ability to craft crazy strong armor is pretty fun as well. I've been using Mastercrafted Feline Witcher armor for like the last 13 levels and it's "underleveled" at this point but still fucks everyone up because it's the most OP thing ever

    • Oh I know how the combat works fine, I've never once even tried to block or parry. I cut my teeth on Monster Hunter and the Souls games, dodging is the only way I play action rpgs. And I think needing to research what you're fighting and using items accordingly is always a welcome mechanic. But it's still just not my bag. I think it's clunky because I think Geralt is clunky, I keep bringing up Souls but it's basically ruined most other third person combat for me.

      And I am out of White Orchard, yep. Did every side quest and contract I came across.


      I think you misunderstood my post. I don't think it's a bad game by any means, and I am enjoying playing it, but I just don't see how people praised it like the second coming of jesus

      Posted by Red

    • Yeah, I can get that.

      If it means anything, I'm like a year into my first playthrough and I still find new stuff to do places. So there's that, haha.

      Posted by goronmario

  • hey dude we are doing the game night thing soon if you're still down :)

    Posted by goronmario

    • What day and time???

      Posted by Red

    • Ummmm we are actually still debating that haha. There's a thread in Din if you're interested. Our first game is going to be Cards Against Humanity with a Skype call; if you have suggestions for future ones/particular days you wanna play I'd love to have your input haha

      Posted by goronmario

    • I'll take a look~

      Posted by Red

  • Thank you for that. It means a lot.

    • :)

      I meant it too. The forums have always been meant to be a community. And just like any community there will be different social groups, some bigger than others. But that doesn't mean one group is any more important than the other.


      People may act like their clique is better than yours (or at least they did back in my day, back in the wild west), but it's bullshit. It really is.


      I can't really prove anything, apart from my years of being here, but I've never met a single user who was a total outcast loner. ZU is big enough to be a damned city, there will ALWAYS be a place for every type of person. Always.

      Posted by Red

    • Yeah...but I've also kind of MADE myself unwelcome by way of some of the things that I did last summer, so ugh.

      PS: Are you feeling the BotW hype?

      Posted by A Link Between Hearts

    • Haha, alright. I want you to do something, it's gonna be so easy to do. Go ahead and send Liah a PM, ask her how much of a fucking little shit I was back in the day. Or hell, message Silver and ask how he was when he first joined. Really, go do it, I know she'll be glad to answer. I can guarantee you I was worse than you could ever be, and I still bounced back enough to become a mod until I stepped down. Your past here doesn't matter as much as the present, so please don't try and dwell on it. Members have come back from worse, I guarantee it. So really, don't stress it, there's no point to it.

      And not really, no. Truth be told I don't even like Zelda anymore, I come here purely for the relationships I made over the years. Which is also why I'm so passionate about making sure people here feel welcome.

      But yeah, just not really a Zelda dude anymore

      Posted by Red

    • You didn't get banned for stalking, did you?

      And I'm a real Zelda fan in general, but I do have a soft spot for Link in addition.

      Posted by A Link Between Hearts

    • Nah, I did keep getting infracted for being a little shitheel though. I think all that info got lost when the forums switched from vbulletin to burning board so I can't recall what exactly I did, but they were mostly all from me just flaming people and being generally unpleasant

      Posted by Red

  • do you want to be in the new din skype group or nah

    Posted by goronmario

    • I would, but I just don't really use skype anymore so there's no point in adding me. Appreciate the offer though!

      Posted by Red

    • alright! I don't think it's going to be terribly active, but I plan on hosting Din game nights every month or so and Skype is a good avenue to assist with that. Playing a game in a Skype call is much more fun than just playing a game and having to pause it to post on ZU :P

      Would you be interested in participating in game night thing btw? It's gonna be once a month, I think the first thing is going to be cards against humanity or something and then after that I planned on having everyone pick so everyone can kind of play what they want.

      Posted by goronmario

    • Oh yeah, I'd totally be down for that if my schedule's free. If I can't be reached here somebody who has my steam can usually get at me so no worries

      Posted by Red

    • Alright cool. We are gonna schedule everything through ZU, so I'll go ahead and get you a link once it's set up and hopefully we figure out a date that's good for everyone

      I've been... meh. It's why I'm not as active as I used to be. How are you??

      Posted by Ahluk

    • I've been good! Really busy, but good. Tryin to keep things simple. Go to work, go to the gym, cook up some food, veg out on the couch. Spice it up on the weekends, that sorta thing

      Posted by Red

    • That's good to hear :> Busy isn't bad, not at all. All those sound like simple, but easy things. I've been mostly: Stay up late, fall asleep at breakfast, wake up for work, get off work, try find people to chat with, eat, etc. Boring stuff lol

      Posted by Ahluk

    • Simple but easy is exactly how I try to live my life!

      Though from the sounds of it, we're more alike than you think my man

      Posted by Red

  • BRO, hey.

      Posted by Red

    • Yeah pretty good. How about you? It has been forever - almost wasn't expecting you to show up here.

      Posted by Teekay

    • I'll hop on for a few days once in a blue moon. I've been doing good, just been slowly working on my house and that sorta thing

  • I read somewhere that if you get summoned by the old monk with the cling ring on you'll get an even bigger bonus than with it off. That's insane man.

    Posted by Zarah

  • Did you read the interview where miyazaki said that bloodborn is modeled after the tower of latria? oh man, it's gonna be some creepy ass cool shit. I didn't get anyone summoned as I like to do my first playthrough offline so I know where shit is and stuff. Next playthrough though I definitely want to get someone summoned for it. I've been doing some co op for ds1 lately and holy hell it's fun helping others defeat biggie and smalls, especially when your like a ninja ornstein cross breed character lol.

    Posted by Zarah

  • Demons souls is just about done. All the worlds are clear except boleteria cuz I need to kill allant then the old one.

    Shrine of storms is just so fucking awesome.

    Posted by Zarah

  • Oh and I got gravelorded again, this time in demon ruins. and dickwraithed in anor londo.

    Posted by Zarah

  • Not yet, I'm waiting for the third one to come out later this month so I can conquer all three at the same time. Plus I want to beat demons souls first and I should start a new character as I don't want to go into the dlc for the first time in ng+5 :P

    Posted by Zarah

    Posted by Zarah

  • The other night I was in sens fortress, and I got fucking gravelorded.
