Hello everyone! I've still been playing Dark Souls II. I've moved onto New Game+, and I really like what they're doing with New Games this time around. I'm having trouble with bosses that were a breeze the first time through the game, which I didn't really expect.

I started doing some co-op, now that I've beaten the game solo. Summoning is definitely a lot more reliable now, which is a huge relief! Even at a high soul level of 160, I'm still finding plenty of summon signs near bosses, and the connections almost always work out. I also haven't had too much trouble being summoned myself, although there are certain bosses where you'll have to stand around awhile before you find someone who needs your help. 



I've only tried PvP a handful of time, and they always seem to be super quick duels, not lasting more than 10 seconds unless both players are being too careful. There's still some weird lag when it comes to attacks connecting though; I thought I was totally out of the way of other players' attacks sometimes, and yet they still managed to hit me. 

In terms of multiplayer, I vastly prefer co-op, so I'll probably be doing that more than PvP anyway. Co-op play has worked seamlessly for me so far, so that makes me happy! I love being able to help out players who are having trouble with a boss that had previously given me a lot of frustration. It's a wonderful feeling!

In other news, Kill la Kill aired its final episode this week. It was an extremely satisfying anime, definitely one of my favorites! So many memorable characters, awesome music, ridiculously over-the-top action sequences... what a great show. I can't wait for an English translation, so I can spend more time looking at the animation and less time reading subtitles. Also, I hope Mako can get her own spin-off show someday; her and her family were so entertaining!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
First Kiss

No matter what the experience was or which game or genre left that strong first impression, such experiences have the potential to open our eyes to the rich history of a series or genre. With any luck, we might find even more to love or something better. A great first experience with RPGs could lead to an undying love affair.

Sometimes a first kiss can be so impactful that the game gets placed on a pedestal and enshrined as a gold standard, which has its own pros and cons. I mean, it is nice to have a basis for comparison, but some folks take it too far. There are people who loved Half-Life, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Final Fantasy VII so much that nothing after them really got a fair shake.

So first impressions matter -- they can shape and inform our gaming habits. I grew up on arcades, Nintendo, handhelds, and eventually into RPGs, so much of what I play will be influenced by how I acquired my tastes. I probably like Overwatch a ton because it has a passion for RPG roles, but contextualizes them closer to older shooters focused on objectives more than gear builds and grinding out perks for better killstreaks.

So for this month's Bloggers Wanted, we'd like you head over to the community blogs write about your first kiss, the games that positively influenced you or maybe biased you a little too much for a time. What turned you on to a series or genre? Was it love at first sight? Did it set any expectations in stone or possibly lead you to something better?

Whatever the case might be, remember to use the title "First kiss" and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags!
