Old.

You know more?  Please continue.  Who is this weirdo, and why does he do LPs when he clearly sucks this much?

Why does anyone do LPs?

The point is that being good at video games should surely be something of a prerequisite to playing video games for a living.  Although in this guy's case, people may just be watching his videos for the comedy factor.

No, the prerequisite to playing video games for a living is being able to get money from it. If people find someone playing bad more entertaining than them playing as well as they could, I can't blame them. Being "good" at video games really only starts applying when we're talking about challenge runs and speedruns.

Clearly you haven't seen iJustine's legendary Portal 2 playthrough.

Linkage? It doesn't seem to be uploaded by them anymore.

She got rid of it because it led to her receiving death threats from angry video game guys. I have a backup of something like the first half of it (the "good" bits, before she gets some understanding of the game). I'll upload it and post a link in a moment.

EDIT: Here's what I have: http://omgomg.eu/ijustinep2. Sadly, the rest of the playthrough may be lost forevermore, unless someone hax YouTube or convinces iJ to make it available again. The whole thing was 57 parts.

Moar information, and apparently there's a better character creator this time around:

http://segmentnext.com/2014/02/06/dark-souls-2-character-customization-detailed-want-macho-girl/

Not that it matters.  No game has a good character creator.

Your standards must be sky high. I welcome a better character creator with open arms.

The lack of excitement in this thread disappoints me.  Isn't there anyone else who can't wait to die again?

I like a lot of games that aren't very challenging.

But you didn't mention that the game seemed easier in your review of the beta.  Wouldn't that have been an important point to bring up?  I feel misled!

Easier than what? Dark Souls isn't hard either. Based on my beta impressions, I'd say they're around the same difficulty. In fact, I probably died more in the beta than I would in an average Dark Souls playthrough, but I'd say that's mostly attributed to playing the game as if it was the original Dark Souls and getting fucked over by the gameplay changes as a result.

You took his bait! I thought better of you. >:[

Anyway, I look very much forward to not getting around to playing this game for several years. It does look like it'll be pretty awesome, though.

So does you being a balkno extend into other parts of your life, or do you just keep it to video games?  I can totally imagine you buying an ice cream, eating it, and then complaining that the ice cream sucked because now all you have in your hand is the little stick.  Or doing a crossword puzzle and then complaining that it was terrible because now it's been filled in.
