My SL20 Pyro is currently rocking the Uchi, and though it's only up to +4, it's proven pretty effective so far. That said, I'm still more comfortable switching to a greatsword because I know the moveset so well. Problem is, so does everyone else. The minute you try PvP with a greatsword, you just get parried and then hit with a one-shot-kill riposte.

I even kept my level low, hoping it would keep me out of reach of more experienced players, but that doesn't seem to have worked. Incidentally, this run has rammed home how little your level matters - I'm around half the level I was first time through the game, but I can count the number of times I've died on one hand simply because I'm just much better at the game now Yes, I used the Master Key to skip the Depths and the majority of the god-awful Blighttown, and thus far only Quelaag has claimed successive victory, though her immunity to my Pyro spells takes pertial credit for that.

Anyway, I'm actually stopped playing at the moment. I haven't played Mass Effect 3 for ages, and I thought I'd pick it up and finish my insanity run, that being the only achievement still to elude me. Of course, in the three months since I last played, there's been a lot of DLC, including the first single-player piece, and several pieces of free multiplayer stuff, all of which has once again gotten my attention.

Be careful with this one, my controller hit the wall a few times and when i finally managed to finish it (expecting fireworks & shit) it just dumped me right back at the start and made the game harder!! There was also a soul glitch iirc that pissed a lot of the purists off, it was patched but the ones that had already used it are far too strong now

It's not possible to be too strong in this game, if you're playing online you'll be matched with people just as high level as you are and the game gets harder every time you complete it.

I absolutely hated those fucking archers with the dragon slayer arrows in Anor Londo, one shot would do a shit load of damage. You couldn't even block em because you'd get push back and fall of the ledge. You were fucked either way.

Yeah, that bit was really stupid. Dark Souls is just plain cheap sometimes.

A long time. Realistically it'll take multiple play throughs, so I'd estimate at least one hundred hours.

Think it took me a lot less than 100 hours. More like 70, but I'd have to check my save to be sure, platted it ages ago.

Dieing isn't in my vocabulary... is what i would say but i somewhat have gotten used to it
im actually pretty dissapointed by character customization theres a lot less options to choose from than i first thought
i was comparing it to WKC and WKC has way more to choose from i guess i was expecting too much.
