So, you're saying I could've switched to offline play when the servers had every world set to Pure White Tendency?    *punches own face*
Well...yeah. :troll:

What does it mean when I go to use the standard spear and it says: "You don't have enough skill." How do I acquire more skill?
It means you haven't fulfilled the stat requirements for that weapon, and when you use it, it will be severely underpowered. Most weapons have a minimum requirement in Strength, Dexterity, Magic, and/or Faith. You just need to get the right attributes up to par when you increase your Soul Level. The equipment interface can admittedly be confusing, but this page of the wiki should explain it all.

One neat tip about Strength requirements, though: even if you don't meet it, you might be able to compensate if you grip the weapon with both hands (with the Triangle button).

Due to it's 2nd year anniversary, the developers had the worlds in pure white tendency for almost two weeks straight. However, that ship has sailed and for the next 10-11 days, the worlds are pure black tendency.

If I play this game offline, can I get the worlds back to pure white? Is this a difficult thing to do? I've only been playing them when they were pure white. What am I in for when I play them pure black? I know the enemies are slightly tougher but drop more souls when killed. Is this it?
Damn, now I wish I hadn't lent this to my brother-in-law. I'm missing out on the fun, and things are gonna' be much tougher for him.

Anyway, as for what to expect from Pure Black tendency, enemies hit harder, and your Soul Form will have less HP. But the worst thing is that whole new Black Phantom versions of enemies now appear. They're a lot tougher than the normal variants, and some of them will literally appear in thin air before you. Oh yeah, and named NPCs who only appear during Pure White Tendency now show up as hostile Black Phantoms, and they're really hard as well.

If you play the game offline, the only way you'll be able to shift the World Tendencies will be to either slay the bosses, find and kill the Primeval Demon in that level, or kill the Black Phantom version of a named NPC. If you went online, then summoning other players into their game, being summoned by another player, and/or killing invaders would also do the trick. But due to the server constantly shifting things darker, you'd have to get to your preferred tendency level in one sitting, and switch offline immediately after. So...yeah, no matter what, brightening tendency is tough.

Congrats, you became the final boss in the Tower of Latria in someone else's game, and made that sucker's life more difficult! :ganishka:

It's the only time in the game where an invader can have full health.

I've had Demon's Souls for a while actually, I've been playing it more lately than I had before. I'll be getting Dark Souls when it comes out as well, it has the title of "Berserk the game" for a good reason. The game is fucking hard and unforgiving though, when you die you lose all your souls(used as exp and currency) which you can get back if you found where you died before dying again, turn into a soul form with half HP, and the entire area resets so everything is respawned. It's very trial and error based. You can go back into your full HP human form after every boss you kill and with certain items. I have an image comparing stuff in the game to stuff in Berserk somewhere... I'll have to find it.
You mean this? Don't know if Demon's Souls was ever intentionally copying Berserk, but more in that both drew from the same sources of inspiration. Though the English description of the Dragon Bone Smasher does sound suspiciously like a shout out.

Anyway, hell yes I'm getting Dark Souls.

Japan doesn't print stuff in English for the sake of America, they do it because they like printing stuff in English. We don't matter that much.

Also, who decided that "Slayer" was correct in the first place? When was it first called that?
Well, the first Berserk-related product that ever got an "official" English translation that I'm aware of was the Dreamcast game, which called it the Dragon Slayer. Now, there's nothing wrong with "Slayer," I like the term for the sword as well, but the translation of that game was...not very good, to put it lightly.

Well, Bethesda has done it. They've managed encode a boner into a dual-layer disc.
Heh, if you liked those, you'll enjoy this: they just released the preset faces of all the races!

If this is how Happy Harry reacted to an announcement trailer without any gameplay footage...well, I guess he'd have to stick to Newgrounds for his reaction to this.

In any case...I'm gonna' need a new video card.

edit: im a noob obvious since i can't seem to host the image properly ( pressing the insert image button and putting the link in between) so heres the link until somone can fix it or tell me how....sorry  :judo:
Put the direct link between the IMG tags. The direct link. It's there under "links to share this image," or can be found just by copying the picture's location.

Eh, I got mixed feelings on this commercial. On one hand, Zodd looks like he stepped right out of a nightmare, as he damn well should, especially during his first appearance. On the other...I'm with the anti-CG crowd on this one, it's painfully obvious.

Guys I'm curious, have any of you bought Awakenings? If you have, is it a good campaign? I didn't buy it because I thought the price was too high for an expansion, and it still is, but I want to be prepared in case it goes into a random sale again on Steam, so I need opinions! I want to take my elf on new fantastic adventures.
It's alright, but certainly not worth the 40 bucks. It's on the short side, feels especially rushed at the end. Story could have been interesting, but the more fascinating elements of it (namely, the Architect), are kept in the background and don't come into play until the last minute. You also get to make some decisions on how to run the land you're ruling, which is neat, but most of them don't really pan out satisfactorily in-game, only really affecting the epilogue cards. It's also on the easy side, since the enemy AI remains as inept as ever while you get all sorts of game-breaking abilities.

Worst of all, though, are the freaking bugs. There are lot of them, many are game-breaking (you could end up losing your gear, miss out on side quests, or getting your companions' Approval ratings trashed) and even three months after release, Bioware has yet to fix them (they are currently working on that, but it still did not need to take this long). You'll also need to patch Origins to run Awakening, and that has the unfortunate effect of replacing the memory leaks that plagued it before with more frequent CTDs. Hooray!

I got the special edition.  I named and made my guy look just like Guts.  I wish you guys could see him... :guts:
Try not to miss the Dragon Bone Smasher (or Keel Smasher, depending on the version you have). :slan:

Meh, I'll probably skip Return to Ostagar. Nothing about it sounds too impressive, and so far, it doesn't sound like it'll be worth the money. I'm skipping Warden's Keep for similar reasons. Seven dollars seems fairly steep for what sounds like a relatively small quest and a couple new abilities (oh, and some storage, but there appears to already be a mod for that).

Just got this baby for Christmahanaquanzika, and I think I've found a new love. Had so many reservations because trying to play and finish Neverwinter Nights 2 before getting this (and failing) was leaving a bad taste in my mouth, but thankfully it has none of its issues. Just killed my first Ogre. That was fun, almost didn't make it. The nameless tower guard was dead. The nameless mage was almost gone and the beast's attention was on him. Al had been knocked back and wouldn't be able to intervene on time, so it was up to one Elf fresh out of the Alienage. One kick below the belt to slow it down, a little dirty fighting to daze it, a lucky slice of a major artery...

...And it was over!

So it's official: Cyrus is takin' over Fereldan now!
