  1. Tenchu Z was good fun. Hella ropey, but good fun all the same. 1000/1000 gamerpoints here! There were some properly daft skills tucked away, requiring weird button combinations to execute - and never explained very well would be on board for a spiritual successor
  2. I guessed the summoning problem was that there are more summoners than summonees, rather than dodgy netcode? I also found the most success from - - get summoned, help someone out, - upon returning to your game, start summoning More often than not I’d get two people into my game within a couple of tries, maybe a minute or two? And this was from being under levelled for Nokron bosses, to (probably) over levelled for final boss. also, had loads more boss wins with the mimic than random clowns
  3. After your 150 hours on Elden Ring, I think you might get on with DS1 a bit better now! While it lacks the open world it’s all so tight and choreographed, especially early game areas. Check down the first well
  4. Maps and notes were insta-buy items for me, then the swordstones. Always gives you even more things to uncover (and smack)
  5. OMG I’ve just seen the reason for the “sister” message in the snow ruins
  6. I was online at that stage, and the floor round there was covered in messages! Hard to miss
  7. Got the platinum yesterday, lvl 150 and about 150 hours on the clock phew, what a scorcher! Really enjoyed it. I definitely see the criticism that there’s too much of it, and I felt it dragged a little to the conclusion. Equally, it feels a bit churlish to say there’s too much content. Despite my getting the platinum there’s loads I missed, and such a lot of replayability available from different builds My final ten hours were spent equipped with max Rivers of Blood + Milenia swords, plus Mimic or jolly co-operation, and pretty much breezed through end-game content. Tried a few solo but naah, life’s too short. Hats off to anyone with the skills (and perseverance) to learn the bosses that can near-instakill you thanks to everyone in the thread for sharing thoughts and experiences, it has been a fab supplement so I can enjoy the game even when not playing it!!
  8. Special spear at the entrance ?
  9. I’ve ‘discovered’ (130 hours in) the oil wells on the map are -in fact- flagging the location of static telescopes
  10. No real tips, maybe come back with the rot breath which is a good boss killer? All the tough enemies have a move set, with limited openings to punish. I never think I need to ‘git good’, rather I need to spend a few attempts learning the openings and tells Parries - are only occasionally essential to learn… and also very frustrating until they click! I originally noped out from Crucible Knight(s) as couldn’t be bothered. But one night I set to it and now I look forward to further encounters. Parries are not necessary, but they do hasten the fight, look cool, and its supremely satisfying to finally dish out a proper thrashing
  11. Took me plenty of attempts for sure ! She was butting up against the edge for long enough to let me heal, ping off an arrow or spell, or be adventurous and time a jumping slash. then I’d panic and benny-hill off the rock, round the arena, back onto the rock aaaaand repeat. Not sure it’s what Miyazaki had in mind, but neither are my meagre combat abilities!
  12. minor cheesy approach which helps (a bit) -
  13. Yeah, thanks, but it’s the old OCD! I’ve platinumed the other souls games so I really want to see and do as much as I can here, too. Tonight Matthew, I’m going to be re-speccing to an INT/ARC build, that ought to freshen things up
  14. I’ve reached the Snowfield area, convinced it’s the final furlong. Checked the general walkthrough/progression on Fextralife and oh my god there’s soo much more to do. I think I agree with others who seem to say the back end is a bit too grindy for its own good? Most encounters are fairly tough, and not quite as enjoyable as the preceding 100 hours (“only” 100 hours of quality gameplay ) but still, it’s GOTY innit
  15. You’re briefly invincible when you roll, so try to roll towards an enemy on their big/final attacks. Punish them for a couple of hits, then get clear
