How many people can you summon at the same time? I thought you just could summon one person, but today I was summoned and we were three hunters. Vicar Amelia got a serious spanking.

It was also weird that it read "summoner" (or whatever it says in English) on both of the guys I found there.

Futurepress twitter says ignore Amazon they will begin shipping this week, next at latest.

But yeah I've never seen this with a guide before. Wondering if anything has attempted to be kept under wraps...

As I am sure you know already from Gaf, nothing was kept under wraps. The guide is INSANELY detailed though, it is crazy and I see why it took so long to release.

Yeah I seen. Still getting it to read as it looks awesome.

I'm giving bloodborne a rest until the patch hits and then I'll get my plat. Onto DS2 on PS4 just now lol. Scholar of the first Sin is a great upgrade over vanilla.

That was my plan as well. I still haven't beaten Bloodborne, due to work crunch time. I think I'm very near the end, I only have Cainhurst and the Mensis Nightmare to do. I dunno if anything is after that, but at this point I'll probably just wait for the performance patch.

Patch is up

Main points of UPDATE 1.03

- Reduced loading times (approx. 5-15 seconds; may vary by circumstance)

- Fixed bug that left certain lifts and elevators inoperable

- Fixed bug that resulted in bosses becoming immobilized

- Fixed bug that left players unable to advance NPC events during multi-play

- When the PS4 is put into Rest Mode during online play, the game will now return to the main title screen upon resuming play

This will resolve matchmaking issues related to Suspend/Resume.

- Other various bug fixes

We will continue to make improvements to better the play experience.

They've added item descriptions to loading screens as well.

That's a good update. Improved loading times AND the loading screen is more entertaining. (Y)

 

I also like the fix to rest-mode killing matchmaking. I put my PS4 into rest mode out of habit, and having to close the application and restart it every time, upon resuming, was getting really annoying.

 

I never noticed the elevator or boss issues though, but doesn't matter now anyway.

It's insane, it really is. Overwhelming even. My intent was to start playing the game again once I got it, instead I am still reading the damn thing as it it is so detailed.  :wacko: I honestly had no, no idea the game got as in depth as it does with everything. I already read a lot of stuff that should make my experience much better once I play. I do just have to stop reading it and start playing again, but I am in a bit of a funk right now with playing anything also, just no real desire. I feel like I should be doing more productive things with my time so starting to draw again and reading a lot (not counting the guide LOL).

Yeaaah, Souls games for fans affect the mind and there goes study/work lol.

 

The theme is pretty cool as well. Subtle, and my Plasma thanks it for being dark (unlike that free white theme).

I honestly never really put much thought into it. I just went with it.

 

I mean, who cares why the hags drop pebbles? Does this person also wonder why werewolves and giant fatties drop vials of blood when they clearly have no place to hold them and no reason to have them? Trying to use logic to make sense of the, often times, ridiculous items in a Souls game seems like a waste of time.  :rofl:

Bloodborne Chalice dungeons are kicking my behind, I'm at level 70 so I can keep invading so I won't be leveling up anymore, but getting through Depth 4-5 Chalice dungeons is a pain. Has anybody have success in these Chalice dungeons?

Level 100 is the PVP meta? 70 is going to be really rough for the lower chalices. Especially defiled as it halves your health.

Is that true? People are settling on level 100 for pvp? I guess I'll stay at 75 to avoid all of that nonsense.

I finally started playing again the other night, and let me just say the guide sucks for people like me.  :laugh:

It is seriously convoluted, especially since every damn paragraph the walkthrough constantly says refer to page 505 on what this means, which roughly translates to refer to page 505 to try and determine what you might want to do.

There also just seems to be whole areas that are totally missing in the walkthrough.

With that said, the hour or so I played, I amazingly only died one time, so the guide must have given me a few decent tips and tricks.

I'm hoping to finally finish the game this weekend. I was busy last weekend with the Parkinson's Walk in Central Park, and Yankees-Mets game on Saturday, but I don't have any plans this weekend.

 

If I can distract my girlfriend long enough to get some game-time in, I should be able to finish Cainhurst and Mensis. (Y)

Cainhurst boss can be pretty tough. Mensis is a bitch.

Just killed ROM on the third attempt. I have seem that boss being mentioned so many times (probably for other reasons) that I thought it would be a tough fight.

It hits hard, but slow and telegraphed.

The next area seems to be a bitch on it's own, though :(

Rom can be hard the first few times. Just a tip, bolt paper works a treat ;) Next area is tough due to the bell ringers.

 

Finished my skill build

 

SL 100
 
Vit 40
End 25
Str 10 (to use burial blade) 
Skl 50
Bt 10 (to use reiterpallasch) 
Arcane 15 (to use hunter tools) 
 
I have a good range of flexibility between blades of mercy, burial blade, threaded cane and reiterpallasch. Hunter tools aren't great but 15 arcane let's me use most and arcane scales a little with bom and burial. I used the blood rock on blades of mercy as they rock. Threaded cane and reiterpallasch can both be buffed with paper or arcane shell thingy. 

 

 

Posted it on GAF so just copy/paste.

That next area just feels overly hostile: bell ringers, variety of enemies, unsettling huge things  :pinch:

 

Tonitrus did the work nicely against Rom, along with Ludwig's sword to one-hit it's annoying minions.

Now, Ebrietas... that's an actual PITA, quite probably the hardest boss I've found so far... and disturbingly ugly, while at that. There's definitely a strong lovecraftian vibe in some of the game concepts.

Hardest boss for me. Could not do it alone. Even with co-op my helpers died a lot, followed by me. Not looking forward to it in NG+ as bloody hell boss health pools are massive.

I tried to summon people once, no one joined. Maybe it was just coincidence, but I think people probably might not particularly enjoy fighting that one.

Maybe if the sucker didn't turn around so frigging fast...

      Alan Wake Remastered comparison trailer reveals significant visual upgrades
      by Asher Madan

      Today, Remedy Entertainment revealed a detailed comparison between Alan Wake Remastered and the original Xbox 360 version. As evidenced by the trailer posted below, the game not only receives higher resolution rendering, but also adds better textures, lighting, and advanced features like reflections.

      This is the first time the title will be available on PlayStation systems, with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 getting the enhanced version. It's also coming to PC and Xbox. Luckily, the wait isn't too long because it's launching on October 5, 2021.

      Alan Wake focuses on the titular character as he battles shadow-like creatures using his flashlight — and guns — as weapons. The game is regarded as a cult classic nowadays and it's beloved on PC and Xbox platforms.

      Alan Wake Remastered features the base game and The Signal and The Writer story expansions. There's also going to be developer commentary track by the game's Creative Director Sam Lake.

      Best Buy to host PS5 and Xbox Series X buying event on Thursday
      by Asher Madan



      Even after a year, it's still very hard to find a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X. If you're in the United States, you'll get the chance to buy a PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5: Digital Edition, or an Xbox Series X in stores starting at 7:30 a.m. on September 23, 2021. It seems like consoles will be available in major metropolitan areas based on the list. Curiously, the Xbox Series S is absent from this event.

      Best Buy said the following about the in-store console event.

      Just head over to the Best Buy website to see if there's a store near you. Keep in mind that many of these stores don't open until 10 AM so you'll have to wait a good two-and-a-half hours to complete your purchase.

      Sony-owned Nextorage releases M.2 NVMe SSDs that can be used with the PS5
      by Karthik Mudaliar

      Nextorage, the Sony-owned subsidiary, has launched an SSD that can be used with the PlayStation 5. This comes a few days after Sony officially announced support for expansion through the M.2 solid state drive slot on the PS5. The new series of Nextorage NEM-PA PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 NVMe SSDs are available in both 1 TB and 2 TB capacities.

      The performance of the 2 TB unit is slightly higher than the 1 TB one. For the 2 TB unit, the sequential read/write speeds are up to 7,300/6,900 MB/s respectively while the random read/write speed can reach up to 1 million IOPS. As far as longevity is concerned, the 2 TB version is rated for 1,400 Terabytes Written (TBW). There is 2 GB of DDR4 RAM for caching needs.

      PS5-Compatible Sony SSD Sequential Read/Write

      Random Read/Write

      Endurance 2TB Nextorage NEM-PA

      7,300 / 6,900 MB/s

      1,000,000 / 1,000,000 IOPS

      1,400 TB

      1TB Nextorage NEM-PA

      7,300 / 6,000 MB/s

      750,000 / 1,000,000 IOPS

      700 TB

      The 1 TB unit offers a sequential read/write speed of up to 7,300/6,000 MB/s meanwhile the random read speed is rated at 750,000 IOPS and the write speed is the same as that of the 2 TB unit at 1 million IOPS. For longevity, the 1 TB unit is rated for 700 TBW.

      Both the units come with an aluminum heatsink. This is on par with Sony's requirements for installing the PS5's SSD. Once installed, players can use the expanded storage to download, copy and launch both PS4 and PS5 games as well as other media apps on the PlayStation 5. Players can also move games and apps freely between the internal and external storage options.
