  1. Need a good anime to keep me busy

    1. Napsys
    2. Lithia

      Lithia

      I suggest you take a look in the anime&manga section, there are enough recommendation threads with plenty of titles. :]

      - Lith. ...Redirect.

    3. Sakimitama

      Sakimitama

      If you like very good and witty dialogue and very artsy-looking anime, then you might like Bakemonogatari and its other related series. It's very casually sexual though, just a warning.

  2. BM, KFM, Des, or Sin

    Despite what anyone says about the class with best in what your looking for, if you don't like the class you probably won't choose it.. KFM or Des.
  3. That's only the start of it. of course some people are not as quick to get it as others. with some time most people will be decent. but as usual only a handful are good.
  4. Lyn theme was memorable. Jin as well but Lyn takes it for me.
  5. Gon pvp

    You also have to go on the assumption that because the game is based in the east at the moment that most people posting here have probably never even touched the game and that the only things they are basing their "Solid" evidence on is the video's people are posting. Now don't get me wrong it's a great way to obtain information about the game but lets face it. There are 2 major factors that come into play. 1) You may not have any first hand experience. 2) It's very rare for someone to upload a video of themselves doing poorly. This isn't that case for everyone but you can't really complain about imbalance even more so when this game comes to the west. The developers are sure to make the game more "Westernized" anyway, even if it's only slightly.
  6. The people that have played the Korean verison will have a huge edge when creating the economy for the EU/NA versions. Yayy.

    1. Rubedo

      Rubedo

      I'm definitely not looking forward to it

  7. Gon pvp

    Hey Hey. We've got to realize the awesome job done to keep the classes balanced. Sure in some cases one class might have a slight advantage over another. But in most cases each class is capable of holding it's own. Besides... It'd be unrealistic to have every person enter a battle on perfectly even grounds. There is always some one more skilled or etc. I say use your skill and adapt. I'm sure that everyone here has that ability. :doubt:
  8. Possible to change loot type?

    I read this post. I laughed. Still I think what Candee says makes a lot of sense. As for organizing. If my wife said she wanted something.. I would ! Probably give in. So the knowledge would be helpful. Then again I have no real say as I won't be touching the Korean version again,
  9. Gon pvp

    Well when I think about it, most people don't post vids of them losing anyway. there are some but really this game is in most cases about skill. timing and all. everything relates to how well your build is. Not to say that everything is perfectly balanced. Cause it's not. But as I said before skill plays a big factor regardless of race.
  10. Not the one I have. Pumped for Dark Souls II though.. even with the new director. I hope not to be disappointed.

  11. Good/Evil

    Good, Just cause everyone is going evil.
  12. Is it Dark Souls PTDE for PC? bcuz that's what i have

  13. I think I have a character around that level. PM me your GN and I'll add you if you wanna play together some time.
