Larry, I give hints, not holding your hand
But yes The guy behind the barred window.
You gave a hint and I guess (correctly I might add) based on that hint. What else was I supposed to do??
You know what is funny is I went back to that area to do some echoes farming and I actually went to the window and then said screw it, I have heard everything this guy has to say, and decided not to talk to him. Clearly I should have talked to him.
And just a quick comment about going back to that area. I do have to say that this game is easily, EASILY, the best game I have ever played as far as truly making the player feel they have gotten stronger and better at the game. I think back to how much difficulty I had with that first area by the bonfire, especially since I was new to the Souls games overall, and now when I go back and just wreck shop and barely even have to think about it, it really is an incredibly satisfying experience that not many other games that I can recall captures.
I am trying to talk a co-worker into playing the game, he is a gamer but somewhere between casual and hardcore, and I even told them they can borrow my copy once I am done, and my biggest selling point to him was "The game makes you feel like you have accomplished something just by unlocking a damn door."
