It’s day two of the working year. I NEED A VACATION! Over the last two weeks, I got used to some certain things. Waking up late at 7AM. Playing games that didn’t need to be followed by 2000 word reviews when I was done. Pants. It’s going to be hard adjusting back into the world of the grind, I tells ya.

In Other News: Hitman may not have been killed after all, Halo 5 is still on track for 2014, say hi to Clayface and battle the Kung Fuehrer.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy trying to reattach my legs after a vigorous bout of cycling.

            I’m terrible at these things. So I can’t guess who’s it is. I will probably outshine anyone and everyone on how terrible I am at any sport involving a ball.

        Nah, I read most of the articles, or at least skim over them. I also comment on them if they are of relevance to me or there is something that I want to add. It might be that I haven’t had much worth saying recently so it seems that this is all I cum out of the wood for 🙂

      Should’ve bought that on the Steam sale. But I’m now slowly working off my backlog. My girlfriend just msgd me “dovakin”. Think it’s safe to say she’s appreciating the steam game I bought her.

        Look game is hard as balls, and you get annoyed to kill things over and over again at first but when you level up the things that once were your worst nightmare are easy foes. You must get it man. very rewarding game.

          One thing you must accept when you walk away from a bonfire is that you are going to die. Once you have made peace with that, you’re whole outlook towards the game changes

          I think I found mine on one of the corpses laying around. Can’t remember where though. Just remember that you need to do at least 50 points of damage per arrow to be able to kill him, because he heals when his health drops below 50%

          Which dragon? The first one on the bridge? And which merchant did you kill? The first one you encounter in Undead Burg (undead merchant). He sold a bow. Also, don’t go round killing merchants 😀

          Regarding the dragon, killing him with a bow is actually more difficult. Most people shoot his tail to get the sword but melee him. It takes some practice and patience (as all thing DS), but ain’t that difficult. Run up the stairs onto the bridge, stay on the side of the bridge so that you can’t get hurt by his fire and move forward a bit (staying on the side) until you can’t move forward anymore. He will fly down and with good timing, you can do your lunging attack on him. Run back down again. He will fly back up. Then repeat!

          But leave him be until later. No need to kill him now.

    Oh btw the Steam thing won’t work. It’s cloud-based so destroying your PC is silly. :/
