    @ skare: don't go magic it's boring! makes the game to easy. When i understood you right, it' too easy for you to make it exciting....so don't make it even easier with magic. Make it to a challange run - we want to read about your failure, not about OP OHKO everything

    Walter, I'm not going to make a magic run. I'm a knight in games and that won't change. My plan is actually to use magic I haven't really invested stats in to see what kinds of things I can do. It'll be the experimentation that I think will be fun since even my sl250 who has every spell and can use them effectively really hasn't used them at all. I've had a busy weekend and haven't jumped on yet, but when I do I think I have Demon's prank queued up

    I think I might melee him. Always used archery for him (and the Storm King). But I might have some fun times with that spell. I'm counting on playing tonight too. It's been a crazy weekend but tonight is Skare time.

    Yes, I'm on US NA, and have been mostly coopin' at sl30.  I will need to summon some folks on my sl50 and 110 for NG+ though.  If you enjoy watching people take swan dives off platforms, I'm your host.

    Shame. I'm on EU.

    So...were the two interludes combined considered to be Chapter 6? Or was 6 too afraid of 7 to show up?

    So I thought I'd try Zero Escape on Vita for a couple night break. Turns out it's a brilliant game and has turned into obsession.

    Did the same thing with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate lol! 

    Does this mean no more updates, at least for a while?

    Probably. Damn story in Zero Escape is super compelling. The individual rooms are relatively easy so far but there's puzzles across the game that have me hooked. Plus there's a Jupiter quote E would love

    I can't recall if I ever let Biorr take on Penetrator 1:1

    I might do that.

    First playthrough I'm pretty sure he'll get Penetrator a little more than halfway down before going down himself. The only reason he's so tough against the Blue Dragon is because they stacked up his fire defense to ridiculous levels. His physical defense isn't much different than what you get from the Brushwood Set yourself, so even though he has high vitality as well he'll still take good damage from Penetrator.

    Shucks. Not sure I want him to die. Maybe I'll take that opportunity to try out a great sword. Handicap myself a little at least.

    I hadn't used him against Penetrator until my last few recent playthroughs, and I highly recommend it.  He's actually extremely talkative and talks smack the entire time, while the Penetrator doesn't say a thing.  It's very funny in addition to being effective.
