Dark Souls progress 8/24/15
August 24, 2015

A smidgeon of an update on my progress. I've only beaten two bosses since the last Dark Souls blog.

Last time, I had defeated the Centipede Demon and moved on to Lost Izalith, where I was constantly running afoul of Bounding Demons, mostly because the brightness put off by the lava down there rendered it difficult to see where the path lay. After snooping around a bit, I found some walkways and towers that eventually lead to a huge structure that obviously served as the ominous conclusion to this chain of regions (where the major boss Bed of Chaos calls home). I even managed to find an illusory wall and uncover another bonfire, which cut the trip about in half. From there, I made my way to the ruined fortress where the Bed awaits.

Dark Souls progress: 8/16/15 part 2
August 16, 2015

[...continued from previous post]


Okay, I avoided the bearded clam reference, but I will say:

"Ceaseless Discharge, huh? Sounds like a personal problem."

As you can tell, I decided to make my way back to Quelaag's Domain and investigate the Demon Ruins. I found the gold banded armor set and roused the aforementioned boss to wake. We fought, I died. I tried again, I died. I tried again, I died. I tried again, I- there's gotta be some better way to go about this!

Dark Souls progress: 8/16/15 part 1
August 16, 2015

Having completed and published my review of the terribad Godzilla, I picked Dark Souls back up and continued my frustrating quest.

I searched Tomb of the Giants a bit, died, and tried to retrieve my 20K+ souls. Unfortunately, I failed to recover them and thus made my way back to the Anor Londo. Not only do I need the Lordvessel to advance any further in the Tomb, but I also desired the ability to warp. That, of course, meant taking on a boss duo that would prove to be my most irritating Souls experience yet...

Puppet Master 5: The Final Chapter (1994)
In the tradition of dozens of other "final" horror films is the fifth Puppet Master installment.

...the fifth of, like, ten movies. So, yeah, this was nowhere near the "final."

This one picks up where 4 left off, with the new goodie two-shoes master being accused of murdering the victims of the previous film. Also, the puppets have been confiscated as evidence against him. Also also, the Egyptian demon lord from the previous film wants revenge and intends to exact it by engaging the puppets personally. a puppet-sized monster. :

5 (Unfortunately) Scrapped Godzilla Projects
August 09, 2015

Filmmaking, from what I've read, is a strange process. People in suits pitch ideas that they think people who maybe don't wear suits will pay money to watch. This leads to lots of writing, folks doing things in front of cameras, computer work, and then a theatrical release. Myriad pictures, though, don't make it past the "man pitching an idea" phase and end up either a memory in the mind of some screenwriter or a rejected script treatment with accompanying concept artwork.

Dark Souls progress: 8/7/15
August 07, 2015

The life of a games critic is a cold one. Now and then we have to depart from those we love to spend time with those we utterly cannot stand. I recently put Dark Souls on the shelf so I could tarnish every memory I have of Godzilla by playing one of the worst games attached to the franchise play Godzilla on PS4. I mean, seriously. It makes the Game Boy Godzilla look like a masterpiece. In only a couple of sessions, it went from mediocre to complete garbage. I will say, though, that the Commodore 64 Big G game is worse, but that's not saying much...

Before my temporary sign off, I hammered out a bit more progress. Previously, I was upgrading my junk and getting ready to face the boss of Anor Londo, but then I decided to take detour instead...

Just... eight... more...
August 06, 2015

I've been avoiding overtime at work lately because I want to finish some reviews/blog posts. I'm hoping to have:

-Godzilla review (PS4)
-An accompanying Godzilla-themed blog
-Jurassic World review
-Fruit Ninja review
-Recent horror viewings
-Game progress blog
-Avengers: Age of Ultron review
-Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light review

I have my work cut out for me. The list was actually much longer before, as it included the reviews that went live recently (Cast of the Seven Godsends, Odallus, Wizorb, Mad Max: Fury Road, etc.).
