On Games I’m Playing – Sidebar Update

So, today I’m feeling a bit mushy in the brain and didn’t come in with a good topic to discuss. This means that today’s post won’t be close to 2000 words, and will just be a brief synopsis of what I’m currently playing and what I have planned to play. You might also notice that I finally got around to updating my “What I’m Playing” sidebar since it hadn’t been updated in quite awhile. I feel like that is something I really should do a better job of doing since I do somewhat frequently rotate in a new game. For a couple of months I would have said the only game I was playing was Dark Souls 3, up until the point where I got all the trophies and haven’t picked it up since.

Within the first couple of days I started having issues with the network card telling me it was missing registry entries or something. I haven’t had time to really dig in to it, so the only solution I’ve managed to get working at this point is turning the PC off, … Read more…

On Dark Souls 3

So, I’ll start off with saying I’m not the biggest fan of this series because I had a pretty rough experience with the first Dark Souls. No, not Demon Souls, which is technically the first in the series. I’m referring to the first Dark Souls game that came out for the PS3/XBox 360/PC several years. That game has the single honor of making me either nearly break or actually break a controller. I can’t remember if it actually broke, but I feel like I did. Now if you don’t know anything about this series I will just say that the first Dark Souls was probably the hardest, and most frustrating, game I’ve ever played in my life. The games in the series are designed to kill you, but in the process make you better at the game. It’s all about trial and error and learning what works. If you’ve played … Read more…
