    So I had a bit of a break over Christmas as this did not seem to be doing much for my festive mood, but I'm back in now, and I hate Bed of Chaos. I hate it I hate it I hate it. They knew it was shit as well, what with the checkpoints.

    I've done the two arm orbs, so now it seems to be making it onto the underground branch thing. It's not going terribly well. The biggest shields I have slow me down too much.

    I am utterly convinced that this game monitors your forum moaning, and once it detects frustration it makes it easier on you. Bed bug defeated.

    Getting released after being stuck in one area reminds you how great this game is. I'm down in the Valley of the Drakes now. I found the dragon that looks like it's dead. But of course it isn't. Managed to pick up the equipment there, but will be heading back to retrieve my souls after work.

    I think I stupidly have put a bit too much into STR as I have a massive dragon tooth club that I was desperate to wang around with abandon, but even with my new muscles it still slows me down too much to be effective.

    I can't wait to play this again with a new character after I'm done.

    I've been playing it again recently. Created a new character on PS4 and stopped leveling once I got to SL30 so I could use it to help people out

    However there is very little activity on PS4, I've only ever seen one or two summon signs myself

    Although on one of the occasions I did get summoned the player had a novel way of beating Capra by throwing firebombs over the wall before he went in. Never seen that before

    @retro74 The community aspect has largely passed me by (except for on here!) as I've played the vast majority in handheld on trains and stuff. The one time I did use it, the player comment was an evil trick and lead me astray! But I will try and get into wifi a bit more to get the full experience.

    @Singularity Iím not an online gamer but itís the community element that really sets it apart for me

    Going back with new builds has been 90% of my time on it. Seeing different things every time

    Itís the gift that keeps giving

    Not played 2 or 3 so very tempted by that trilogy set that's coming later in the year.

    Might have to smarten up from my original DS1 playthrough where I pretty much clobbered my way through the latter half of the game by overleveling, grinding and tanking damage against so many bosses.

    Gah. Just been doing the DLC things in Darkroot basin, and after rescuing Dusk I had Yes highlighted, but mustíve pressed the cancel button (Iím still getting caught out by that regularly) so sheís buggered off.

    Been playing through it again on the switch. Did okay really ringing the two bells. Then went through the great hollow and hit a wall a bit at ash lake. Just couldn't do the hydra for some reason. Don't have the Lord vessel either so started the long trek back to get to firelink. Going to go to the blacksmith in the parish then thinking of going to sens.

    Man this game is hard. Worth it though. Will defo be picking up the trilogy as well. Can't tell you how many hours I've put into the first but never played the sequels.

    Oh and I treated myself to the hardback guide from future press when I got the switch version. Pretty good, a lot of info in there. Not sure about the actual guide part itself though. As I'm going through the game there seems to be a lot of missing/slightly wrong bits of info in there.

    @Singularity
    I am pretty sure she comes back. By memory you might need to head to the a place above Anor Londo, before returning and summoning her when in non-hollowed form. Others feel free to correct me if I am remembering wrong.

    I hadnít played any Dark Souls games before so thought Iíd treat myself to remastered.

    The difficulty seems unfair rather than just hard. Like the two gargoyles and the thingy with the dogs in the tight room. When I beat them it felt like luck rather than skill.

    To me it feels like a chore rather than fun. Admittedly my game tastes have changed recently but still, I just donít get the love.

    @Samildanach Ah cool. Iím currently a prisoner in the Dukeís library. Hope I see her again.

    Iím now using my +2 dragon tooth club, so I can pretty much one-shot most things Iím currently coming across. I can see why I was given the advice to drop my shield and spear combo!

    Managed to F up a convo again - I rescued the Onion knight's daughter from a crystal golum and when she asked if I had seen him I had the Yes option selected but my character responded in the negative. Not sure what's going on with that.

    Anyway, that aside this is still the best game ever. I was annoyed to find out that the scaleless boss was guaranteed to kill me. I have two rings of resurrection in my bag of carrying and I can absolutely guarantee I will never use either of them!

    @Samildanach I'm pretty sure if you select no after rescuing Dusk from the golem she is unavailable for the rest of the playthrough.

    @Singularity funny thing with that last bit, the first time I played it I was carrying loads of souls and I was very suspicious of the funnelling up the stairs so I put on the appropriate ring and managed to avoid the problem. By that point in the game I was very suspicious of From.

    @Singularity :)

    Thatís the worst bit of the game for me, itís not that itís hard or anything I just hate the aesthetics

    @Pipedream it was probably skill. Souls games are usually pretty fair and if you die itís your own fault for the most part

    When youíve played it a while those fights are a piece of cake

    The gameís been heavily patched, so a lot of info in the guide will have changed. Weapon stats & scaling have all been tweaked. Things like Ďcurseí have changed too and more merchants sell the cure; it used to be a nightmare trip to The Ruins for the single npc that could cure it.

    Itís still good to have the guide though.

    @retro74 I hate the invisible platforms and the snow, and the slants on some of the bridges that slide you off for no reason. Like that bloody branch you had to walk over in Blighttown and getting hit through walls because of bad clipping, it's the only time that the game actually seems unfair. I'm at the boss now, so I'm very happy that it (seemingly) is quite short.

    @quadfather Only tried once. Didn't get very far. I'm trying to attack his tail as I'm hoping I will get another tail weapon to add to my grotesque collection, and he squashed me with his tail. Ironic.

    @Singularity

    You're hitting the crystal before attacking him yeah?

    And if you have high curse resist armour that helps
