Thank you guys, I started playing it because I saw how much you loved this game... you were always uploading videos and such, I honestly failed at first to notice how good this game was, I watched some videos (posted by you) and I didn't grasp the game spirit at first, but once I started playing it I couldn't stop!Nostalgia wrote:Good to hear you're playing Max!
One of the greates things this game has (in my opinion of course) is the fact that there's no tutorial, you have to discover things by yourself... while dying! (by the way I died like 500 times).
Of course, after the 3 witches you have a tutorial area with signs that shows you the controls, but that's it! Also I like the total freedom you have to travel the world, and the lack of directions, for example, in "dead space" you can press certain button to know where you have to go, or in other games you just have to acces the map to know where to go. On the other hand, in this game you're completely alone in that area! I must have spent like 15 hours wandering the map trying to figure out what to do...
Another thing great about this game is what is called "emergent gameplay", you can solve a number of situation using your creativity, instead of doing some pre-fixed mechanic... For example, in one part I was REALLY stuck, I spent hours trying to figure out what to do, then I realized that I might check out the bottom of the well in "Majula" so I bought the "Cat Ring" so I could throw myself into the well and survive... but I died! so I thought "if I had more health I could survive the first falling" so I started leveling my character in order to rise the health points... and then after a few levels I could throw myself into the well and discover new areas like the sewer.
Another great thing about this game is its atmosphere, so silent and depressing, but at the same time fascinating!
So... I extended myself too much, but I wanted to share my thoughts with you guys.
Regarding your stats, I'm surprised you are using a sword Hiero (since you are building your character to be a spell caster) I honestly never tryied to use a sword, but it's always an option if I rise my strenght... but I think I will rather rise Faith and Attunement to be very efficient at casting magic!
Nos, It's cool you have a pyro glove +10, I was upgrading two gloves at the same time so I have one glove meant to be used as a hollow (level 6) and another one meant to be used as a human (level 5), I know that being a hollow takes a huge toll on your HP... but the damage you can inflict with that glove is incredible!
