Taterchimp Tackles: May 7th Edition

So I have heard tales from faraway lands that people really like to recap what they have been playing on the cblogs, so I wanted to join in on this tradition, perhaps temporarily, and recount the games that I have been playing these days, and the games that I may continue to play:

Tomb Raider

I wish I knew how to quit you, Dark Souls.  I have slowed down to get the above games in my busy, busy schedule, but I started up a Vega (claw, for you international readers) character.  As a challenge outside of just “use the claw weapon” I have decided to play the game hudless.  This is actually pretty cool as there is a lot of detail that I never noticed before when my HUD was sitting on top of it.  It also takes out the ‘choke’ factor from the bosses because I never know if I am really close to finishing them off or still have half the lifebar to go.  Spoilers:  Its half the lifebar.  The claw sucks.  I have been using strong magic weapon with the Oolacile catalyst to buff the damage against bosses, but I have made it to Simon and Garfunkel and just haven’t had the energy to get past them yet.  Like the Dragon Bone Fist, the claw has a laughable range, so it can be hard to hit boss characters in their boss genitals.  It also has a unique after roll attack in the form of you roll forward and do a lunge stab, which is really Vega like, but often times it is a liability instead of a hilarious luxury.  Notably against Rogers and Hammerstein where you are frequently rolling to avoid their attacks.  Maybe someday I will win against them, but for now a break to other games has been nice. 

Finally, I put together a little video for you all to possibly enjoy, featuring all the games mentioned above:

My Belmont Run for Dark Souls can be seen


I also did a blind run of the DLC, which you can view

And here

I also covered the progress of building my own gaming PC. I had no experience, and overall, it wasn't all bad! If you are on the fence about it, I suggest you read about my efforts

And here

The series never had a part 3, because I was having waaaaay too much fun playing it. Suffice to say that it does alright these days.

Thanks for stopping by my blawg!
