(i...I did it! I actually made progress in Dark Souls
! Barely anything noteworthy, but enough for me to take pride in finally moving onto a new area! At which point I got mercilessly slaughtered by a layout of enemies even more intimidating than that which I had been dealing with beforehand. But such is Dark Souls. Not a game that entirely hates you, but more just a strict parent, who only wants the very best out of you.)
(On another, fairly unrelated note, for all I may criticise the upcoming Assassin's Creed III
, with it's naval battles, loss of stealth in assassination's and almost painful amounts of patriotism, I still think it looks really quite good. The gameplay seems to be one of the best bits with some genuinely useful inclusions, rather than the bombs from Revelations
which I ended up feeling guilty about because I never actually made use of them. That and the exploration of the countryside looks stunning and assuming the map is big enough, I can see myself getting lost, wandering hour after hour round that place.)
(Which brings me to my next point, wondering which of the two collector's editions I should get. I've always been a sucker for collector's editions and now I'm trying to decide between the Join or Die edition, notably cheaper and with a medallion that comes with it, or the Freedom edition which is £80 but comes with a nifty little figure of Connor. Ah, decisions, decisions.)
(On retrospect, it wouldn't be bad to rename this to "First World Problems: The Blog Entry".
