    Eh, there's always something to keep me busy in the meantime. I want my first play through to be relatively bug free so I'm all for delays and it also puts less pressure on the developers. Gamers are so entitled these days always needing instant gratification. The real world always has delays...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    On my first play through I felt as if the late game bosses ramped up the difficulty pretty good. I had basically no room for error as 1-2 hits would kill you. So you had to learn their moveset and dodge/roll/parry almost perfectly every time. You also dealt less damage so the fights lasted...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I think I've settled on a Starscourge build for the rest of my playthrough. The ash of war ability is so much fun and it's a colossal weapon so it staggers enemies pretty well. I liked Bloody Slash with Nagakiba but the bleed didn't proc that much for me to like it.

    Thymesia: Memory Frontier

    Anyone else had performance issues? Frame rate was good but there were random hiccups every time I rotated the screen too fast. I turned off motion blur and still had that issue. Shouldn't happen on a RTX 3080. Gameplay also felt stiff and not as responsive as I'd like. I think this is a pass...

    Be Quiet Silent Base 802 vs Dark Base Pro 900 vs Fractal Meshify 2 vs Fractal Torrent

    I think any of those would do. The best for airflow would be open front mesh. So it basically just comes down to looks after that. I have the Torrent cause I love the design but the cable management isn't the best.

    Looking for a gaming chair.

    Hmm I've had a very different experience. I am using a 2022 Secret Lab chair. Went from a Gesture to a Secret Lab because the Gesture gave me back pain. Not sure if it's because I always reclined in it at an angle rather than sit upright. I tried adjusting the back support numerous times but...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    So I was playing NG+ and all of a sudden got very bored with Blasphemous Blade so I spent 2 hours trying all different kinds of weapons. I settled on Malikeths Black Blade cause I liked the special attack and also its ability to stagger enemies. I assume all colossal swords have a high stagger...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Elden is my first Souls game so I don't know which I should go back and try. I'm wondering if Elden has spoiled me and I would be disappointed with the previous titles. I was thinking of trying either DS3 or Sekiro after I'm done with Elden.

    That doesn't sound healthy bro. A game should not be giving you that much anxiety. Try some CBD oil and just relax and go in. Confessor is a good hybrid with swords/spells.

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    Which colossal swords are you using? I don't have nearly enough STR and END to dual wield but that seems like a strong build.

    I thought all you do as mage is the kamehameha beam and stun lock bosses til they die.

    People sleepin on the Crystal Sword. This thing hits hard and it's special attack stuns pretty well. Also having fun with Blasphemous Blade too.

    Next Tomb Raider

    Did they make her more homely in Shadow? I hope they go back to the original character design if they ever make another one. She was smokin in the first 2 games.
