if you returned to northern undead asylum and fought the stray demon at any point, firesage has more or less the same attack patterns. the main thing to learn is the telegraphs for the explosion moves, you need to back out for those but otherwise you can stay up in his business hacking away relatively freely

if you've explored the depths of tomb of the giants, there's a place where you can farm humanity pretty efficiently. there's a spot where little baby skeletons will spawn infinitely and those have a fairly good drop rate, it helps to consume the humanity as you go (up to a max of 10) as that boosts your item discovery

i beat him as soon as i kindled the fire. got my humanity from three dudes who spawned near the firelink shrine. they were a pushover. now in that lost izalith place, hard to beat the skeleton dinosaur things as my FPS drops on the lava and they're big and hard to stab

capra demon is one of the handful of bosses in DS1 that still gives me trouble from time to time, if you don't dispatch the dogs immediately and cleanly that fight can go downhill ridiculously fast :homework:

i haven't picked the game back up in the last couple of weeks so i still need to beat O&S, i've got a couple new games over the last week though which are keeping me distracted

my fellating lover who isn't much of a gamer got a switch last year and had asked me what i loved on the system. i mentioned that dark souls was one of my all-time favorites and he bought it on the basis of my praise, i warned him it'd be a very difficult proposition and didn't think he'd get into it but he's balls deep now. ended up buying it when i was in NYC just on the off chance he decided to stick with it so i've been progressing thru the game for the 5th or 6th time now.

he finally got stuck on ornstein & smough, i put a summon sign down for him tonight to help him finally clear the hurdle. even though it's easy peasy for me now, it still gave me such a rush to see him clear it for the first time. i'm so proud of my gaming son :gay:

not really interested in sekiro, theme is cool but doesn't reallly appeal to me

haven't dedicated any time to bloodborne yet either, blood vial farming is a huge turn off
