    General? Strength/Faith combination. Blessed Weapons, Miracles and the Dragon Bone Smasher in Demon's. Later did Str/Fth again in Dark Souls... Sunlight Blade Large Club+15 w/Lightning Spears. Mostly ...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic When playing stealth games....... on the Games Discussion board.

    I like the stealthy approach. Non lethal, hacking, incapacitating and other creative ways of getting to the goal. If I wanted to spill blood, there's plenty of other games that would allow me to do so...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic GameSpot turns 18 tomorrow, how long have you been here? on the Games Discussion board.

    I've been visiting regularly since 2004, didn't actually sign up until 06. So a good 8 years, yeah. I read far more than I post.

    In games like Mass Effect and such, I can't bring myself to play bad guy, renegade, whatever.But yet, I supremely enjoy drilling a pixelated man's brain out (or watching them be bifurcated from a kat...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls II WHY!? Do you do these things? SPOILERS! on the Games Discussion board.

    Ah. Thanks for correcting me, C_rake. You know, actually the first time I fought Vendrick right after Velstadt, I was doing the amount of damage I would have been doing with the Giant Souls, but I did...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls II WHY!? Do you do these things? SPOILERS! on the Games Discussion board.

    Well, think about it. Both Vendrick and Ancient Dragon are behind fog gates. In Dark Souls, fog gate = boss a lot of the time. If you had any experience with Crossbreed Priscilla in Souls 1, you could...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls.. Is this the game of the generation? on the Games Discussion board.

    @IndianaPwns39 I agree. I love both games, but Souls 2 is basically just a hub area and a some branching paths. As someone who loves nonlinear games a la Metroid, it's something that I miss. There we...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls.. Is this the game of the generation? on the Games Discussion board.

    Definitely my favorite title of the generation. The first six hours were incredibly punishing, but once I started coming to grips with the mechanics, I was totally absorbed. I ended up making 6 charac...

    Can't pick between the souls games, c_rake? I think DS1 takes the cake for me, but only by a liiiitle bit. Probably due to the stellar DLC.My list looks like:1. Metroid Prime (GC)2. Donkey Kong Countr...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Best racing games of all time? on the Games Discussion board.

    No Burnout 3 within the first 3 responses. Thread = invalidJust kidding around. Seriously though. Burnout 3. Speed? 200mph feels like 200mph in Takedown. Carnage? Crash mode is like a whole other game...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic how many hoursa week u spend playing video games? on the Games Discussion board.

    Depends on whether I'm at work or not. Right now I'm a full-time student so I have a good deal more time than when I had when I was employed recently. I sometimes went a full week or more without turn...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Why haven't you bought a next gen console (yet)? on the Games Discussion board.

    Money. Well that, and I'm not one to buy new hardware early. There's simply not enough software available yet, and there's still stuff on the previous generation consoles that I haven't gotten to.

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Facebook buys Oculus VR for $2 billion. The dream is over. on the Games Discussion board.

    Welp, there goes any hope I had for the unit. Instead of headlining creative new ways to increase immersion, it will probably be used for more meager purposes.

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Dark Souls harder than Darksiders? on the Games Discussion board.

    Yeah, there's not much puzzle solving in Dark Souls. It's more environment awareness than anything else- there's no map, so you'll have to pay attention to item descriptions and NPC dialogue in order ...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Do you lose covenant rank when you leave them on the Games Discussion board.

    No. I was at Sunlight (\o/) covenant rank 3 before I temporarily switched over to Pilgrims of Dark. Got rank 3 there too, and then went back to the Sun. You can check your covenant rank at any time by...

  • gpuFX16 posted a message in the forum topic Is Dark Souls II easier? It must be surely! on the Games Discussion board.

    The endgame stuff is really tough. I racked up deaths in double digits around the game's later bosses, but it was intensely satisfying to beat them, and complete the game, which I did just yesterday. ...
