I already know how tough that game is. Truth be told, I had no interest in the game ever since Demon's Souls came out years ago.

So true ... I thought the game was trolling me with Anor Londo ... then I went into the Tomb of Giants *shudders*

I like the character setup for this game. You arrive at character customization, you spend four hours on your character's face until you have it juuuuuust right. Perfect. The way you wanted it. And then? You start the game and your face looks like hamburger. I'm talking human anatomy textbook showing the muscle layers of the face. WHAT?!

I know you can fix it, but odds are you better get used to looking at old hamburger puss.

I concur. Had my first real RAGE moment last knight. It involves a very small catwalk, and two archers that fire spears at you. I'll let that sink in...

Oh man, fuck those guys!

I died so many times trying to run past the guy on the right, it was insane.

"Hey Bob, maybe we should fire arrows at that trespasser."

"Hmm, you're right Dave, but this guy looks tough..."

"You mean?..."

"Yes Dave, break out the fucking spear bows."

HAH I cleared that part on my first try in Anor Londo wait until you start the Demon Ruins. I'm loving the game I'm a Demons Souls vet so I'm a bit more hardened then people new to the experience although I do get into a few rough patches. That being said game is fun its a contender for rpg of the year next to Skyrim. The most rewarding experience I ever played since Demons Souls and I like the fact that it actually challenges the player.

Is that the ring that makes you not able to lock-on to the player if so. I agree, it is soo cheap!

Well, goody for you. Every time I get up there, I get shot in the back and knocked off the 8 inch wide platform. So, I'm going back with Poison Arrows, killing the guy on the left THEN I can handle the guy on the right. Also, I've beaten Demon's Souls myself as well, and don't remember a part this frustrating since the second half of the Tower of Latria. What is From Software's obsession with bottomless pits?

What I did was use a tower shield and go for the knight on the right. The tower shield causes them to bounce off and leaves them open for attack, you can also riposte their swings albeit more difficult. The attacks I did caused him to fall off using my Iato+10 but I don't know if it was luck but the knight on the left was unable to hit me I must of been behind a wall or something. With a tower shield I found the knights easy to take care of and it should make the rest of the level cake if you pull them one at a time. Also check for mimics

Yeah, I know about Mimic's already. I was using a Tower Shield too, but even with high Poise and heavy gear it's the fact that their attacks push you back that keeps killing me. Regular archers, no problem. Not only that, but their attack range is ridiculous. Usually, the draw distance won't even let you SEE enemies at that range. Noticed it in Sen's Fortress.

I was fighting those demon things when i saw those spears come at me, was like 'hey must be a ballista ahead'. Then i saw two random knights with bows bigger than me firing fucking spears at me. Hardest part of the game by far for me, I actually killed the right knight the first time i went up but went back for the left one and got taken out by the knockback somehow pushing me into the pit instead of the wall, rage was had.

STAY OUT OF MY FOREST!

*Ahem*

Do you guys remember the scraping spear? I was -that- guy in PvP. Really, if you don't know what that one does, I want you to go look it up and imagine the lulz that were had. XD

Well, it is very difficult, but, after you get used to the init-

Yeah, that was a lovely part. You can get those bows, though, in Anor Londo.
