What About the Lysine Contingency…?

IT BEGINS.

Alrighty folks, as Barney stated in the clip above, as of this moment; IT BEGINS.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but over the past several days I’ve been very lazy in writing posts for this blog.

I still enjoy writing, but the fact of the matter is, I’ve been in a rut for a long time now, both in regards to this blog and life in general.

That being said, I’m not the sort to give up easily.

After all, I’m one of those guys took it up the ass long enough to eventually beat Demon’s Souls and is likely going to end up doing the same with Dark Souls.

I really don’t know what to expect from this, but I’d like to take this opportunity to ask you, the reader; to let me know what you’d like to see me do in future posts.

As much as I know there’s a demand for it, I’m not gonna’ post photos of my dick or anything like that, but if you’d like to say, see me draw something, or write an article on a particular topic; I’d be more than willing to accomodate your requests.

Anyway, here’s hoping I get a lot of responses, or at the very least, a few good ones.

Seriously folks, don’t waste my motherfuckin’ time….

Demon’s Souls 2!?

Holy Schnikes, Demon’s Souls is getting a sequel!

As some of you may recall, I made it a point to slog my way through the beast that is Demon’s Souls; not just so I could say I did, but because I genuinely enjoyed the experience.

As only the second game I would own for my Playstation 3, I poured hours and months of my time into Demon’s Souls, making progress by inches, and generally doing my best to see and do as much in the game as I could manage.

Highly publicized for it’s brutally unforgiving difficulty, Demon’s Souls was an expansive and creative dungeon crawler that was very much designed for a specific breed of gamer, (read: masochistic) with the rewards of it’s gameplay experience being reserved for only the most persistent and determined of players.

Like most people, my relationship with Demon’s Souls is very much equal parts love and hate.

While I have yet to start a new game+ in Demon’s Souls, as I’ve been busy with work/blogging/playing other games; in hearing news of the upcoming sequel, feelings of excitement brewed in my heart.

Demon’s Souls was a game that struck a chord with me on many levels, however it was by no means a game without it’s flaws.

On the contrary, the game was riddled with design problems and missteps, from somewhat generic art design, to “cheap” combat mechanics, to minor annoyances like respawning monsters.

The trailer for the sequel, titled Dark Souls; is fairly ambiguous in terms of presenting the gameplay mechanics of the game, however even at this point it’s evident that the art design and graphics have been vastly improved, and the repertoire of attacks available to the player have been expanded in some capacity.

Check it out below:

Personally, I’m thinking Dark Souls looks pretty decent.

Bear in mind, I watched this trailer without any sound, (malware fucked my audio drivers in the ass…) so for all know there could be some horrendous narration that totally ruins the entire ambiance of the video.

In any case, if it’s at least as good as Demon’s Souls, then chances are I’ll give Dark Souls a try.

For now though, I guess I’m stuck writing lame blog posts about it as I seriously consider picking up Demon’s Souls for another playthrough.

By the way, Tremors FTW.
