    I played all 3 Dark Souls games. For me there wasn't too much of a learning curve, although that might be because I was never patient enough for Dark Souls to begin with. The shift in combat from dodging and blocking to parrying also helps, because I have an easier time standing my ground than I do running around and trying to flank enemies....

    I beat it a little while ago. I think the best part was the movement - webslinging and jumping all over Manhattan was interesting enough that I rarely used the fast-travel system. That said, I think the designers might have overlooked the fact that you can *also* web-sling freely indoors. Some of the boss fights seem calibrated to the assumption that the player will be mostly on the ground, when you can easily dodge most attacks by staying in the air.

    Now, I'm playing Bloodborne for the first time. I'm feeling like this is easier than other From Software games - mostly, I suspect,...

    ...Bo, at the bottom of the tower.

    She was taking another turn at the controls while Ash sat in the corner, studying the room. King had discovered he could easily cling to the outside of the tower face, and was currently resting on the shady side of the rolling structure. Ash figured that was fair - he'd had to work hard today, and she was feeling pretty tired herself.

    "I'd say we did good, wouldn't you agree?" Ash said, out of the blue.

    Bo gave a slight start and her hands jerked at the controls. The tower shuddered.

    "Er.....

    The Ranger took advantage of the pause to look around.

    The train to Roca Roja was far enough away that she could barely see it behind the cloud of its own dust trail. Somewhere above, a group of black birds lazily winged its way in her direction. In the other direction, Lans and the dust car had finally rolled to a stop. Lans himself had disembarked and was jogging towards her. And somewhere far down the track, concealed by distant heat mirages, she could make out something tall and green trundling along.

    Beneath her mask, the Ranger smiled. They'd pulled it off.

    I don't think this is feasible for the forseeable future. We'd have to outcompete all of the independent boat-taxis, and we have no means of doing that.

    More importantly, becoming a taxi magnate sounds really boring. This is Exalted! We live in a world of magic and wonder, and your highest ambition is to become a successful small business owner? What legends will they tell of our deeds then? (Answer: None, probably.)


    Well, it's not like it's a *lot* of money. Eel hasn't demonstrated much financial restraint in the past, but I doubt he'd run out on Tavi over the...

    The Ranger let out one last desperate whistle, hoping King would get under control.

    King heard and understood - or his instincts were good enough to compensate. Either way, the sand dragon turned to face the charging yeddim and stood up on his back legs. The great beast barreled on, smoke streaming out behind it, unconcerned whether the creatures before it were standing or lying down. But then, as it came close, King bolted forward, turned, latched onto to the belly of the beast with his foreclaws, and jumped up onto its side.

    The yeddim screamed and veered...

    Where'd you find that for $130? I bought the same thing for $400 and thought it was a bargain.

    On-topic: I'm many, many hours into Middle Earth: Shadow of War. I still don't know how I feel about this game's emphasis on orc army management, or the multiplayer components, but being able to ride a drake is pretty cool....

    (Hey all. It's been a very busy few weeks for me at work, and it's been challenging for me to make time for this project. I am writing this to let you know I have not abandoned it, and will resume with the adventure soon)
