I have 211 hours in , haven’t been in a rush to beat it, and I *just* figured out that “heal nearby allies” sorceries can heal your summons, including spirit ashes.

What’s with FromSoft and blinding women or removing an eye?

(If it matters: I’ve only played and , and seen bits of Demon’s Souls. Haven’t played the DS series or Sekiro)

I've only experienced through Indeimaus and now The Sphere Hunter. But I really like both their work, so it's fun to get these different perspectives. youtu.be/NlqkwvWOaxw

A simple graphic to help y’all understand narrative, , and in video games.

Please sign my White House .gov petition to require Valve to give me a dock for my Steam Deck. You can have one too. But me first.

I've been curious. about this one: SkillUp is pretty positive about V Uprising after spending 20 hours in its early access test.

Looks like an isometric action-survival game, but with VAMPIRES. youtube.com/watch?v=-J3X3r2jDw

This is an excellent video so far that explores how balances darkness with beauty, from a woman who goes by Eurothug4000 on YouTube.

I got only ~ halfway through over lunch. But she installed some camera mods to get *gorgeous* footage of areas from perspectives you likely couldn't see any other way, or at least without being attacked.

Beautiful essay and exploration of some of the game's likely artistic inspirations.

This is the type of PC design indecision on the that supremely annoys me.

It’s 2022. The previously running game should have been put to sleep/rest/whatever state and Elden Ring should’ve started. Don’t bother me with this silliness.

The OS should be able to do the obvious thing, and the games should be resilient for this situation. Ugh.

Um

WHY IS THERE A HUNTER LOGO ON THE GG SHIP

YOU HAD ONE JOB BUNGIE

Well ok fine you have like, a bunch of jobs. But still YOU HAD ONE JOB WITH THIS SHIP AND IT WAS TO *NOT* ALLOW A HUNTER LOGO ON IT

folks: I’m ~ lvl 50 or so, been mostly speccing into strength, health, and intellect for a “mostly melee but also magic-curious” build. But I keep running into interesting weapons that would tip me over from medium to heavy load.

Should I start speccing into endurance (or whatever) to improve my equipment load, or just stick with vanilla swords ‘n crap until much later in the game?

Elden Ring wants you to stop hitting yourself

Occasional reminder that Battleborn was a fantastic game and it absolutely did not deserve the awful treatment and fate this wretched industry gave it.
