BB probably does have the best DLC tbh, yeah.

the two DLCs for DS3 form a sort of duology that continue the lore and offer a canonical end to the series, I guess.
Ringed City feels like a love letter to the fans, similarly to how most of DS3 felt.
Or if we can't have nice things; fanservice.

Agree that The Old Hunters is the best DLC. None of the DLCs are really bad at all though.

@blinge: Love it!

About the BB DLC....we didn't even discuss the tons of awesome new weapons. That was a huge improvement. It made the game better.
Some of the new outfits, while still similar, were very welcome.

Hahah. Maybe I'd fit with my current autism levels.
Nah, I'll never be into speedrunning enough to play that hard and go for perfection all the time, it's like committing to score play in shmups, i can't keep at it.
Also I've never tried RedTearstone strats or skips/glitches.

The reasons I'm running atm is I have a personal rivalry going on.

We actually had another impromptu race last weekend (Sorry Necron it was late morning here and I forgot to tell you!).

Jiffy, the rival, didn't sit at the Blighttown bonnie/daughter of chaos so boned out and saved huge time there. I did for safety reasons, and had the arduous climb back up.
Nobody got BKHalberd, I suffered with reinforced club until I could commit GBH (giant blacksmith's hammer). Jiff had Gravelord sword.

I arrived at Anor as he killed O&S, I'm completely tilted at this point and die several times to them myself. I was about to quit then I remembered some binding of isaac race from a GDQ and how much of a cringe-inducing asshole the loser was, so i sucked it up and just kept playing. We both finished New Londo.
Jiffy hadn't beaten Ceaseless yet, I had. Warping to daughter of chaos meant i didn't have to make the second blighttown descent. So I ran past him as he was fighting it. He then realised he hadn't placed the lord vessel after beating 4K, and boned out, having not activated daughter of chaos, again. LOL

I tore through the rest of the game, getting Bed of chaos with the firebomb trick. Approached Gwyn with a ten minute lead. and died.
and died. and died. and died. and died.
Jiff was rushing to Gwyn while I entered the fight again, a broken man.
I was two-handing the hammer for ripostes but couldn't chug estus then pull the shield back out in time for Gwyn's attack after he got up, I had to choose one or the other. I was fucking up the timings anyway. This was the mother of all chokes.

In my last attempt Jiff got smacked into the void by a black knight outside, while spectator Fence yelled "Blinge just did 5 parries in a row!!"
I'd remembered how to get Gwynny in an AI loop, finally won.

Jiff then fucked the dog on gwyn himself so i ended up winning by minutes instead of seconds this time.
fuc this! no more races!!

It definitely feels like it. I'm not sure what I've done to get so consistently on your bad side lately?

I wouldn't consider the castlevania stuff my bad side. ask my exes, actually.. don't.
Am I wrong though? Going critical mode on these games and casting judgement from your one non-dlc playthrough seems to be a decent chunk of your enjoyment.

Also forgive me, gang, for dredging up the whole BB has weak bosses argument.. But surely you'd have to hold ds1 to account for that, as well?

Playing a mage in Dark Souls 2. It's kinda funny how the consensus seems to be if magic is usable in a From game it's overpowered. I certainly don't feel overpowered compared to my fighter or cleric/fighter type builds in the past.

Regular sorcery yeah? I started a playthrough like that before SUCCiro came out and haven't wanted to go back to it.
I switched the dark magic part way through to be an edgy boi.

I'm really bad at minmaxing though like i've put some points into END and ADP. I want my roll to work still. Taken a hit to my damage as a result. Magic definitely felt 'unusable' compared to previous iterations..

I'll just end up over leveling like always.

No idea what that is, but it looks super addicting

Haha.. yeah maybe I am.

Especially with my fanboy (FromBoy)-ism sometimes which is why I was a bit of an asshole to Sumez.
I'm sorry, man.

That almost makes me want to go back to Eternal Ring.
But I haven't cleared King's 4, so it would not make any sense.
