Legend of Galactic Heroes, really long and involved hard-scifi space opera
Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
It's animated in japan, but it is not anime at all. Other than the art, it has absolutely nothing in common with anything anime represents. It's just a really heavy military space opera with a lot of political and philosophical commentary, kind of like Dune, and it goes on for about 300+ episodes.
So I'm just getting into DeS and I remembered that I've sometimes seen people use spells even though it says ability shortage? Are there certain talismans that let you cast without the stats?
so /dsg/ who is the most useless NPC summon in any game in the series and why?
>lone hunter schmit
>does little to no damage
>constantly walks into fire in rotten fight
>actually walked up behind me and stood still so i couldn't dodge away from an attack
Ahh. The 'slowest' thing I've watched was GitS, but I enjoyed that greatly. Might give it a shot sometime. There's a remake? Which should I watch
how long has it been? if there's no chance of seeing you guys ruin their days then I'm not going to watch
I hope it returns in DS3, or a similar weapon but has R2's that aren't crappy
Also what weapon should I use before I get it? I'll have to atleast get to NG+ before O&S to get it and cheat engine is wonky when I try to get it to work on DS1, I'm thinking of using the Zwei or normal greatsword because they both look great
im in a bit of a predicament.
I really want to play dark souls 3 when it comes out as i've been really late to the party for every other game. however i dont have a system to play it. So i can either
>bite and buy an xbone or ps4 now so I can play it at release
>or have to wait so I can afford to build a PC. however, that will be a while.
I wont mind waiting a bit, especially with a package edition being released later.
would the wait be worth it?
Some older episodes were remastered/reanimated.
There will also be another series of it done soon.
Its worth a watch.
I am married to Estoc.
(Blacksmith Hammer is my side ho)
>you better hope you never see one on another player
hahaha oh yes
The bell I consider ironic, I want to know if it looks good form the neck down or if the gauntlets don't fit
>complaining about freja
>not the best spider fight in the games
please kill these fags repeatedly
>actually managed to find someone to invade in DeS
>he immediately summons a blue phantom
fist weapons have that headbutt as a kick
pushes, kicks, shoves in demon's souls all apply status effects from weapons + buff damage
he has light weapon on, the equivalent of crystal magic weapon
fist weapon and dagger shoves can infinitely stunlock players and enemies FOREVER
while demon's souls has toggling, you can't toggle out of being shoved
ring of the eternal warrior increases your stamina regen enough that with timing you can shove things forever
this is inescapable death
broken dead game
I borrowed a gamepad from my friend and installed Dark Souls. And holy shit those controls and that fucking camera.
The way you turn your camera with right analog stick is retarded. You don't have even 1% of control you have with mouse in any first/third person game on PC.
You run and roll with the same button. It means that roll doesn't register until you release the button. You can easily fuck up your roll just because you pressed the button to hard and didn't release it in time. Roll is the main fucking action in the game and it's gimped because gamepads don't have enough buttons. Oh, and while you're running you can't even roll because jump is on the very same button.
RT/LT are delayed too, because they don't register as soon as you start moving them, but when they are ~50% down.
To chose an item you need to cycle them with d-pad. Once again gamepads just don't have enough buttons so you can't bind them on 1/2/3/4 (or F1/F2/F3/F4) like on keyboard. Oh and while you're switching your items you can't even run, because it occupies the same finger.
Gamepads were fine in NES era when jump and attack were the only actions you can do. Why are they not dead nowadays?
Well I did it, cleared all of DaS2 with a Whip.
I'm surprised at how little they suck in this game compared to 1, it wasn't even that bad for most of the game. Infact if the Old Whip was actually fucking useable the damage would have made it a hell of a lot easier than a Raw Bloodied Whip.
What exactly is it that makes the Old Whip break so easily? It has decent enough durability and they fixed the durability bug ages ago.
Whips have a few attacks that have long active frames. If an enemy dies, it continues to drain durability during its death animation. As a result, everything you kill with the old whip essentially drains durability as it dies.
Just avoid finishing enemies with the old whip and it'll last much longer.
Gonna post some DeS pics to go along the stream.
My Bloodied Whips were absolutely fine though. I even made it through Sinh without them breaking. But I hit Raime with an Old Whip one time and lost 1/4 of the durability.
I want to do a Whip run now, any suggestions for a main whip or just use them all to save on Repair Powders? I'm sure those little birds will fuck me and not give me an Old Whip, ever.
Old Whip is garbage because again, it seems to be the only whip that breaks to a gentle breeze. The best whip is The Bloodied Whip from the guys in Huntsman's Cospe, it has the highest damage aside from Old Whip, more poise damage (which is actually important with how slow the whip attacks are) and more range.
It's super fucking rare though, I had to farm for two hours in CoC (and ended up with almost 100 CREO) to get one to drop.
what did you expect from these pussy faggots?
two people literally telling this guy how to do everything, fucking boring as fuck and lame as hell. waste. of. time.
fuck anyone who watches these dumb fucks.
>He killed himself
Good thing I wasted all those hours preparing a character
>almost 2 years
>still no larger pic
>still no good lewds of her
Patience anon, they'll slip sooner or later.
That random 4th fag is more annoying, who is he anyway.
Yeah, I'm still going to wait, at least I might be able to invade them 3-3. It's just frustrating that I wasted all that time completing the game SL1.
>My face when listening to these retards be wrong
I gave her the pole.
Just got a completely random slab while running through New Londo, what a wonderful feeling.
You can practice on other fools until these human themselves.
Based Miralda wrecking Woolie.
Would you rather be getting mad over Woolie being shit at the game and getting lost and not knowing what to do or what is viable?
This is perfect for a stream, there's a reason this is not a series on the channel like DS2 was. If it's on the channel they play it slow as fuck, which seems to be what you want.
I would have liked watching that, the whole fun of the game is learning it and making progress, the audience makes progress alongside the player, there's nothing gained, there's no reason to do a fresh play like that, in any game
What can you honestly do against a Estoc?f
I was using my silverblack spear and he could poke from pretty much the same range as me and his moves had so little recovery I couldn't ever punish him.
>tfw purposely not leveling up so I don't get too far out of range of them
>they're taking this fucking long
>how the kick in the DaS3 demo can lead to a DaS2 riposte
I still can't believe FROM did this, it's like they took the best of both worlds.
I have a level 39 character that can scrape and soul suck. I also have another character that can scrape that's a level below their character. Even I'm getting impatient with their slow progress
and I waited for Brad Shoemaker and Patrick Klepek.
if anyone gets an invade be sure to record a webm for me please!
How long is the Super Best Friends stream going for? They don't seem to mind playing at a snail's pace, but they're also talking as if they're going to encounter a lot of the late game bosses and weapons.
>play against some hotshot level 3 aura guy
>does all of the unlocked/spin/fakeout moves
>faggot gets hit by the same attack 15 times in a row
>literally takes a break in between attacks to gesture no-no-no, just to get hit by the same fucking attack 5 more times
I feel like he wouldn't be that slow (except in the Bloodborne LP, that was real fucking slow) if everyone didn't fucking babysit him and tell him to stop and turn around for small things.
>a third of the stream just has them reading donation messages.
Are they planning on boring invaders to the point where they give up?
Start a channel/stream that doesn't suck balls with something you guys are good at.
Just do it. Income might be low but at least it'll be something, instead or staring at your screen, wishing for stuff doing nothing.
I see what you mean about the item cycling. Everything else, I don't know. I think i just adapted way too quickly, Never noticed any of that my very first time playing and 1500 hours later i still have not noticed it.
you know they don't actually care right?
>posting like this
I dont disagree, but please stop.
>Laughing hard at all those people who went Flame Longsword the whole game like stupid ass NicoB
>Summon 2 Randoms for 2Pursue
>They are clearly pretty low SL since they're getting their shit slapped by NG+ enemies
>Get invaded by a twink who almost 1HKOs them both with IKUGS
>We beat him
>Now the easy part, it's just 2 Pursuers guys!
>They both die almost instantly
Fuck this, I'll just bug it.
Weren't you already asking this here yesterday or something? Didn't you have enough already? God, just play however you like.
He has blue hair and apparently defends woman on the internet. But citations are needed and this random guy is just being cancerous and shitposting almost to the 4kings faggot level.
>plan out entire playthrough
>decide what weapons to use, how to tackle future bosses, and late game areas, what stats to level up
>never stepped a single foot outside of 1-1 in 3 and half hours
>these Demon's feels
>ywn play DeS for the first time again, alone and lost and spooked as fuck
Now you see the world as I do.
I'm not even joking. They're taking forever right now just chatting to everybody in Nexus and they still haven't set foot in 1-2 or 2-1. 2 hours is pretty generous estimate for when they kill the next boss.
I think half of us who were planning to invade already gave up from their slow progress. Even longer if they don't tell Woolie that guy will resurrect Fool's Idol.
reposting for visibility
didn't start this char with this in mind but the idea came along so the bodytype is all wrong, i'll probably make a new one or try to permachange it with ce. rates? the scimitar is closer but i'd like to actually do damage. or maybe i should get an estoc? probably no shield or something like a buckler.
any suggestions, especially on the helmet?
This Spy faggot is literally going out of his way to spoil everything about Demon's Souls.
Plague does a shitty OC.
So I'm gonna try to Powerstance the Orma and Reeve Shields.
They have fuck all scaling though, even with 50 Str I'm getting naff all from their awful D scaling. Should I try Infusing them with an Element or just leave them as is? If only I could make them raw.
What essential DaS meme videos are there? I only know of these
i’d say that you need fuckhuge str anyway and infusing fucks up the base too, but i might be wrong. there is some dude with a build dedicated around o&r. he wears dragonrider chest and archdrake helm i believe. ask again in ~12 hours and you might find him
indeed, the sheer edgyness of the 4chan posting style has gotten so gross. #GG-related or otherwise.
Yeah, I guess I can empathize a little. I find myself watching his videos about encountering hackers sometimes and just thinking, "You and them deserve one another. You're both scumbag exploiters, it's just one of you is doing it within the boundaries of the system and the other without." His salt is delicious.
>church twinking in Ds1 on 360
>Solaire set with no chestplate, HSW, and huge upper body muscles
>all these mad wiggers who want to co-op getting killed by porno-actor Solaire
I consider twinking to be a huge fault in DS but I'm definitely giving it a pass on XBox since everyone who owns one is white trash
I have a problem. I would like to remap my Xbox controller, more precisely I would like to switch the block and the parry button.
I try to use x360ce but it is not working because dsfix overrides DINPUT8.dll
As far as I know DINPUT8.dll is responsible for injecting dsfix in the first place so probably there is no solution for using dsfix and x360ce at the same time. Or is there?
And for some reason DS stop reacting any inpot from my controller if I use dsmfix. I can only use mouse OR only use controller...
Could you help me please?
Thank you kind sir.
The rats are going to be easy
Lingering and Swath nuke the room
I just hope I don't get summoned into a ratfags world because I don't want to deal with salt when I just sprint through his traps anyway
Every thread in every board nowadays has at least one, if not more, than a mention of one of the following:
>something that either reddit or tumblr likes is actively shit because either reddit or tumblr likes said thing
It's kind of repetitve after 2 years of this
4 casts is all it took.
2 to get him to spawn and then 2 to kill him ded.
>getting anally destroyed by meme afro
This. I miss when there wasn't 3 go-to nouns for whenever someone says something they don't like.
I've always wondered if newfags who come here were at one time told that 4chan is the worst, and therefore when they come here, they act the absolute worst. Like getting drunk off the environment or hearsay.
Thats definitely it, 4chan has become Poes law incarnate. You cant tell if someones actually an idiot or joking so its no surprise we are flooded with idiots.
Shitposting all over the shop.
Thats the exact kind of response I usually get after saying that stuff, and no I've been here long enough not to get bothered by things people post. I'm just done seeing it every day.
I think its unhealthy to be ingrained in such a negative environment, it takes a toll on you. Shit, just look at what /r9k/ does to people, we've got like 2 mass shooters and who knows how many psychopaths.
> there is some dude with a build dedicated around o&r. he wears dragonrider chest and archdrake helm i believe.
I'm that faggot.
Honestly, I think it just depends on your preference and/or your build.
When infused, you're sorta missing out on the 100% phys damage reduction, but not by a huge margin.
You get a bit more damage when infused with dark lets say, but if you have RoB, you get only half the bonus damage, and RoB is pretty useful, cause it gives you double the value (because you're powerstancing, duh). Split damage means though that you'll deal less damage against targets with elemental resistances.
Update: just tested this on the arena because I had spare dark stones/pale stones left
and I reload my saves like a little bitch anywaysand honestly the damage difference is kind of hard to notice. It's kind of hard to indentify as well because these things deal a quite random amount of damage at times, although it seems that the amount of damage dealt on dark-infused shields is slightly higher than on uninfused ones.
I feel like the hating and shitposting is much heavier nowadays though. You can't go one thread without a discussion ending up with something like pic related
It used to be less pervasive. There was more room for differing opinions, and it was more for faux pas, but just for voicing a different opinion. But I'm just a dumb /co/mrade, what do I know.
We'll all be doing it... sooner or later.
Don't give up, I believe in you! What were you doing?
I didn't care about them until they started affecting games because publishers started listening to their dumb shit.
now i get your point, the atmosphere here sure can fuck up minds if you have a weak will, but what can you do?, the chan because the last place to anyone that ain't a true normalfag.
You have to remember there wasn't nearly as many people now as there were maybe 7 years ago when I first lurked here. And with that brings a torrent of the gullible, indignant, and just plain ignorant along with it. One day 4chan will fade into the shadows, and we'll begin anew. But today is not that day
Fuck it, I guess I'll just leave them as is so I don't get fucked over by resistances. Real shame you can't make them raw.
Thanks for the response famicom.
As a side note, I really hope O&R make it back in 3, or at least some sort of offensive shields. It's a cool concept that doesn't deserve to be left behind.
i don't recall names, but him got into beef with some trans degenerate group.
It will get better like you said, that or we will all get nuked/locked up in FEMA camps in the end.
I think it adds a bit of bonus damage (like 50 AR or more) but I might be wrong. SMS is still hilarious to use, it makes you feel fucking invincible.
As I said, it's really hard to measure the amount of damage OrmaReeves do because of how inconsisntent it is. Depending on how far your opponent is, counter damage and the amount of hair on Tanimura's jjap ass it can deal from 600 to 890 damage per hit.
Well I'm noticing an increase in like maybe 60-120 (max) AR. If that seems good enough for you then go for it.
>As a side note, I really hope O&R make it back in 3, or at least some sort of offensive shields. It's a cool concept that doesn't deserve to be left behind.
I'm sure they'll add at least some kind of a weaponized shield.
This makes sense.
There are some tripfag circlejerks, but I don't consider those quite dead. I mean the ones where you can post and maybe somebody will reply within a couple of weeks. Like tohnochan or 7chan.
Anyone on scholar of the first sin pc around 1.7m want to help me out with throne defender/watcher and smelter demon?
what pisses me off right now is German Spy. I'm usually alright with him. but he is spoiling fucking everything.
Posted it so people could see my SM level
I'm gonna hit up smelter demon, found some peeps to help me zerg throne defender and nashandra, I'll set my ring to desire at iron keep for smelter demon if you want to come help me out, it'd be appreciated
10/10 Nigga would summon.
But you said 1.7m in the post and that character has only 300k. I can help you if you're 1.7m, not if you're 300k.
You wanna summon me at the entrance bonfire, or outside Smelter's room?
ahh I've heard of them, never watched their shit though
I hope it's not like every other fucking livestream where they have a game playing in the background while they read donations for 4 hours
>liam eats a food tray
>then eats some kind of fruit bowl
>now is on a bag of ruffles
how is he the skinniest of the 4 again
oh woops, clicked the wrong screenshot lol
was kind of distracted
next to the bonfire would be nice, just waiting for the credits to roll since i killed nashandra, i never realized i coudln't skip em
>slept, had a shower and fixed up 2 burgers
>he's still on soul form
what the fuck why is this allowed I just wanted to see them play the game
>while they read donations for 4 hours
got a whole album I've been working on for a while. Here it is boiii almost 700 DeS images and always looking for new ones.
kek, ahh well it's not like a I had high hopes going into a twitch stream
Seems like with 4 people 1 guy could be reading shit and the others could be playing/switch off when they got tired
>invade that bellkeep area in iron keep
>as i spawn host has pursuers and dog fog/resonent soul after me
>heals multiple time
>i use great heal every time i backstab or fire snake
>he chugs and still loses
NOW HES EATING CHOCOLATE
ITS NOT FAAAAAAAAAAAAAIR
holy shit never seen this one before. Pretty good.
Does anyone know who that Legit_ShadowGOD guy is on PS3? Everytime I invade him, I'll hit him. I can see that I hit. Even backstabs. But he takes no damage. Is he a cheater that just hasn't been caught yet?
It works because I made her as fat as possible too
Assuming it's well balanced. And SM is gone. And respecs (even disappearing levels) are possible. And the money is (potentially) there. What does it take? A good stream? Commentary? What?

You remember how it feels dont you /dsg? What was it?
My last invasion in there I invaded some really nooby guy, I was taking messing with him until he ran onto the bridge, I chased him forgetting about the dragon which destroys the bridge
I died first which annoyed me because I was kicking his shit in
Is it really that bad considering it's Woolie's first time playing the game? I haven't played DeS but going through Scholar for the first time (it being my first Souls game), it took me 70 hours. I can get through it much faster now but the first run is always slow.
can anyone help me at shaded ruins normal game +1 bonfire ascetic pc scholar of the first sin? im trying to get the southern ritual band +2 but this balancer pker guy keeps killing me over and over and they pretty much 1 shot me and im completely helpless against them
It's fucking over
Armorer Dennis tanks fire hard
That wasn't even with his shield raised, I caught him in the cast animation for his soul spear
The first time I fought this bitch was hell, if you dont have dex at her level you literally cant pass her without cheesing it.
>Woolie fucking up constantly
>invaders getting cucked
6 hour stream. Bound to happen.
Was fun to watch though. Don't know why anyone expected a spectacular outcome, especially considering he is working fucking backwards from DS2 to BB now to DeS.
Why are you even at Iron Keep?
If you're doing a pure pyro run, that should be the last place you visit on your way to 4 great souls.
At very least, you ought to pick up Fire whip and GC from Gren, and Great Fireball after Freja before doing Iron Keep, so you at least have some firepower.
You can also just buy multiple scrolls of fireball and stack casts to spam him to death. If Dennis is making you cry then you have no hope of ever taking down Fume Knight.
