I decide to tackle my gaming hoarding issues and sell useless stuff cluttering my Elden Ring inventory, like early game equipment and ashes. 100 hours later, I find out one of those ashes, gone forever, is the key to a Dungeon.


I've been exploring everything in Elden Ring, which made me overleveled and I started crushing things without too much trouble. Started fantasizing about stomping my way to Elden Lord like a boss. Then I met the Mountaintop of the Giants. Yikes!


My dream game is now a narrative driven RPG that marries the best of The Witcher 3's story and character strengths with the best of Elden Ring's gameplay.


Somehow I prevailed against 2 Tree sentinels without phantoms fighting alongside me, and it only took me... 4 attempts. Assholes. My lowly wretch has come a long way!


Random Elden Ring Thought: Thank the stars it allows for remapping buttons on console. I don't think my brain could have handled the interact button on triangle rather than X. Does this mean I had to get used to using X to dual wield, but that's better.


I never expected all the fingers chatter I keep hearing both in and out of the game to be quite so...literal.


I was a bit suspicious about Elden Ring. Had concerns about the performance, the open world, the mounted combat (cheesy like The Witcher 3?), the jump button (would it break combat). After being blown away by Demon's remake, said concerned grew larger.


Is it just me too used to a different design, or does the PS5 have a bizarrely unintuitive UI? I've had to google seemingly basic stuff that should have been way more intuitive.


Just had an awesome run through Stormveil castle with a delight phantom called Burglar. He left guidance stones to highlight the way when we split up, took me back to stuff I missed, and together we defeated 3 invaders and Godrick in one go!


Survived the opening hours in the Lands Between as a Wretch, now I even have armor, shield, a bladed weapon and a bow like a proper tarnished! The cool thing about the Wretch is that everything you find is a treasured upgrade at first.


I've never done a Souls depraved run. Now that I've been getting a lot of Souls practice lately, I'll go for the ultimate tarnished experience and try the Wretch. Can I do it? Or will I restart with my tails between my legs? Time to find out!


I'm about to, finally, become a tarnished. Demon's Souls was so good, I'm a bit suspicious of the open world, hopefully it isn't a step down. I think I'll mix things up and go the magic route this time.


I was finally invaded in the Demon's Souls remake. Was crossing one of the narrow walkways in 3-2 ng+. Invader shows up. I cast a soul ray. He rolls sideways and plummets to his death. Epic duel!


My first Demons Souls run went without trouble, but ng+ is a crazy difficulty spike, far more than Dark Souls ng+. The 2-1 fat officials one-shot me, and Flamelurker is growing fat on my souls.


I really like that Demon's Souls remake replaces the awful grindy trophies of the original for skill challenges like rolling through the ballista arrows in the tower of Latria and killing bosses in a particular way.


Demon's Souls remake is incredibly beautiful in general, but why does Patches look so weird?


Would be great if there was a way to change the country of a PSN account, but I doubt that will ever happen. Situations like mine are probably too few to justify the investment in resources to set up the system and protect against fraud and abuse.


So... I'm facing Demon's Souls dragon god, and went for the Fists of Legends achievement (killing him with the hands of god). My Magic character doesn't have the stats to equip it so after doing the puzzle and getting him down, I hit him a few times...


Anybody here playing Demons Souls or is everyone a tarnished now?




I'm nearly giving up on Metroid Dread's Z-57 boss. Once we get to the part where I have to run against the wind and avoid the pink blasts, I lose so much life I can't survive the next one.


Going through Metroid Dread, which made me realize it's been a surprisingly long time since I played anything from Nintendo. I've been a having a similar experience I had with other 2D Metroids: frustration in the beginning, nearly quitting the game...


I didn't pay extra to have my PS5 delivered faster because I have other things to play and waiting wouldn't be an issue. Or so I thought. I deeply regret assuming I'd feel like a rational adult and not like a kid who CAN'T WAIT TO GET HIS NEW SHINY TOY
