Will you be playing some D3? Maybe we can get some SF'ers to adventure on release day. smile.gif

Count me in.

Charge is very useful. In rank 6 there is a perk that increases your barriers after a charge.

It's useful as a last ditch move to off a nearby aggressor, or at lest knock him down long enough to run to cover. It's also very useful if you are pinned down in a bad area and need to charge somewhere far away. I've been surrounded many times, only to charge to some far away enemy, get cover, and have a great vantage point to attack the rest from.

If you spread your two team mates out, you can charge near a spot where all enemies will have some part exposed to you or your team mates.

I'm thinking about playing EVE: Online again. I go through this phase every 2 years or so. The gameplay is not very fun to me, but I love space, I love well thought out Sci-Fi worlds, and I love the hands off PvP environment and economy.

Has anyone played Dark Souls? I am tempted to purchase after having just finished Skyrim.

Also, Dishonored looks pretty sweet.

Dark Souls is awesome, but it's a much different game than Skyrim. It's a hard as nails hack and slash that really requires you to learn to play it.

Are we talking like frustratingly difficult to the point of giving up? A la Devil May Cry 3 or Ninja Gaiden Sig 2?

Not that I have played it, but that's the reputation it has. One of the most unforgiving games of the current generation.

Devil May Cry 3 was a friggin´ pain in the ass to play. Those fucking bosses...

+a billion

That game simply just taunted you with how difficult it was.

I've read up on Dark Souls, and general consensus is that it is pretty difficult, but somehow rewarding. Hmmm.

Demon souls was frustratingly difficult. Even with walkthroughs. But incredibly rewarding too. Took me forever though. Id just stop playing it for a month when id get pissed at how difficult it is.

Dark/Demon Souls very effectively conveys the feeling of being buried alive

I always play single player games on easy now. I had enough difficult video gaming when I was a hardcore WoW player for years. Oh the number of hours I spent wiping on raid bosses.....

I love Orcs Must Die. It's addictive as hell, and I got the full game and all the DLC for around $5.

EQ would have killed you. WoW is easy juice compared to vintage EQ.

It didnt have a difficulty setting that you could change if i remember correctly. I play simpler games usually but theyre way too simple on easy. My default is the second hardest setting
