Especially as we still dont know for sure who killed Arryn (remember him?)

We do know that. Lysa did it.

That depends on your definition of a "nice" weapon. And the cyclops drops the ring regardless of when you kill it.

First play through I would peg my deaths at around... 50-75. Deaths without regaining souls = 1. I spent a lot of time as a phantom getting a feel for bosses before I took them on myself.

Big soldier guys? Head to the forest. The mobs there are way easier. Unless you mean the pigs in the town.

The big ogre hippo thing... it was worth it though I had less trouble with the asylum demon lol

You are absolutely positively not supposed to be fighting those the first time through things betwixt.

What do people see in these games?

They are utterly unique in the sea of indistinguishable, monotonous garbage that has become mainstream video gaming?

Dark Souls was kick-you-in-the-dick difficult. In parts. Most of it, though, was instead sensibly challenging and thusly rewarding. DSII has very little dick kicking.

IIRC it didn't have key rebinding. Or it wouldn't work with my gamepad.

All I remember is it had some such total debilitation.

I don't know about anyone else, but this game runs a lot better than the first one on my mid-range laptop, and I think it looks significantly better.

Having played either on the PS3, I found DS2 looked significantly worse overall. The jaw-dropping vistas and world design are almost completely gone.

In my imaginary gaming journalism utopia, game reviews use a Pass/Fail indication at the top of the page followed by a short(ish) but concise review that lacks spoilers. The more enthusiastic the reviewer is about a strength or weakness, the more descriptive they must be about why. This is the digital age so if the review is based online examples of "poor sound" or "poor graphics" should be available to sample. (screenshots, sounds files, etc. Paired with opposite comparisons for context of course). Also, the only thing in the headline for said review is the title of the game. No quirky word plays, puns, etc.

That's my fantasy. In reality, I basically do the same thing Beamer described below.

I think Ars does a "should you play it? yes/no." I like that.

Kotaku does that but we're not allowed to mention them here... Redface

The two biggest "wtf highscores" from CGW in my memory are Doom 3 and Black & White. It wasn't them being disingenuous, though; their reviewers were just as caught up in hype as everyone else. Hype they themselves fostered, but still.

Definite pass. As much as I loved KB, they really need to make forward progress with a real sequel.

Every time a console tried for extensibility, it failed. The N64 Expansion Pack was a flop, the N64 Disk Drive never made it out of Japan, the Sega CD had only a 10% adoption rate, the 360 HDDVD drive an utter disaster.

You know what people do when they want to upgrade their games console? They get a newer console.

in particular No Country. maybe that emptiness is the point, but i came away from that film feeling almost a nihilistic void.

That was exactly the point of that movie. Or lack of a point.

I'm a sucker for O Brother, and who doesn't think Lebowski is one of the crown jewels of the 20th century?

I'm talking about the show which premiered this week. I didn't find it as quirky-funny as the Coens' material oft is.

Well what'd everyone think of Fargo.

I found this particular black comedy heavy on the black and light on the comedy.

Unless you are into game development, like to participate in/see the iterative products of the game development process itself, I think it is best to just leave projects like this alone until they are completed.

Wish I'd had the sense to do that, but I'd desperately wanted more Terraria.

I feel so dirty

So I got a bunch of Starbucks beans as they were on sale for $6/12oz, but these have different packaging. Upon closer inspection I've failed to discover any mention of the usual "bring this empty bag to Starbucks for a free cup of coffee."

Blue, ever since your story about the bunch of empty bags I've grown accustomed to shopping with a free coffee in hand (local grocery chain has Starbucks in it). If they say my empty bags are no good, I'm just gonna be fuurrriiiooouuussss.

Well, not furious, but mildly disappointed.

TXAA isn't much of a performance hit. AO probably will be, in a game like this.
