    APB on PhlyingDutchman!

    Post by PhlyingDutchman on Mon Apr 16, 2012 11:37 pm

    So my house just got broken into.
    They stole a bunch of stuff from my roommate, but the main thing they got from me was my PS3. With Dark Souls in the tray...
    I don't even care about the hardware, but dangit the 160 hours I'd put into my warrior on there are gone! If you see my PSN ID, PhlyingDutchman, come online, be sure to royally pwn him- I'm talking TWoP, WoG, Chain BS spam, the works. Show no mercy. I wish I could see him get murdered by the NG++ Taurus Demon I left alive to keep the burg open for pvp.

    This is also probably my farewell to Dark Souls. I don't have the expendable income, and moreso free time to replace the system and game and repeat all the work. You guys and gals are all awesome, thanks for all the help and tips. I'll be back when the sequel comes out.

    Don't go hollow.

    You could report your gamertag to the authorities and see if they could ask microsoft to monitor if the gamertag ever goes online. Likely if it does, the people using it won't be the smartest lug and won't be on a secure network and it could be traced by the authorities and nab the burglars.

    Just saying. Don't know Microsoft's policy of working with the cops though.

    EDIT: don't know why I was saying microsoft and gamertag.

    Oh no! That is horrible Dutch sad.

    You could always stick around in the forums, it'd be a shame to have you disappear.

    Sorry for you dude. I imagine how this sucker dies in the character selection screen twice and loses all humanity, then dies again.

    @Buggy_Virus I did, and the police will get an injunction to make PSN give them the location of the IP address if it tries to connect. Since there was PSN maintenance today, that could be likely.

    @berkut yeah I'll still be around, just won't be playing. I should still be able to offer advice and opinions here and there!

    @Rant It's no big deal, as a grad student I haven't had a ton of time for video games anyway. (Dark souls being the notable exception). I'll probably wait for the PS4, or a sequel. Heck, I could get the PC version this fall. Thieves left my laptop sitting on the coffee table!

    im going to guess he's a college student and most of his earnings are going to pay for that... and minimum wage is what 8$ an hour in the u.s now and a ps3 costs what... 300$? deducting food/living costs it'd probably take a few months of saving to get enough.

    That's rough. If I see them online no mercy and maybe a message or two. Perhaps I can add your id to my friends list and see if anything shakes out

    We should hold a fundraiser! We will pitch in gear and supplies so you can breeze by and have your stuff back!

    No no, please don't! I'm a graduate student with at least a reasonable stipend, so I'm not that poor. It's much more an issue of free time than disposable income. I just need to be judicious about what I spend my money on and can't justify replacing the PS3 at this time, since really all the time I've spent playing Dark Souls should have been spent doing research...

    There is actually a reasonable chance that the police can track it down, too. They have the serial number, and PSN should flag the system if it tries to go online, and report the location of the IP address to the police. I've given the serial number to all the local GameStops, along with a list of the 14 stolen games in case the thieves are dumb enough to try to trade them all in together. I'm religiously checking craigslist and ebay for listings from my area, so unless they just want to play it offline, it should pop up on someone's radar.

    Thanks for your support, though, and I'll let you know if I track it down! Hopefully they won't have erased the HDD!

    You know I meant a Dark Souls fundraiser not a RL one right?

    ie, you tell us what your Char had and we get it on ours then trade it down to you along with enough Consumable souls to give you a head start.

    That's good you're not giving up so easily!

    Haha, no actually I didn't... but I'm still touched by your generosity! If I manage to retrieve my system and it's wiped, I just might take you up on that! Though really, there aren't that many pieces of gear that are too bad to get.

    Now you've got me thinking about what a small fraction of the spoils of my adventuring is actually used regularly...
    Sunlight Blade is a little tricky because I like being a Darkmoon, but I'd kill Gwyn to make his sword anyway. One playthrough should get enough slabs for Elite Legs and Balder Side Sword, and farming the Lost Izalith titanite Demon for Demon titanite isn't even that bad. The only real challenge is Dark Armor, but I'd join the Darkwraiths first to go fight for some humanity. Saving Solaire would keep me from getting the Iron Helm, but last time I did it, I couldn't get a sunlight maggot, so I really don't think it's worth it other than for the novelty of watching Solaire v. Gwyn (hint: Gwyn wins).

    I killed Solaire right off the bat and when I went to Izalith the last maggot I killed dropped the Sunlight helm.

    Yeah, from a gear standpoint you shouldn't try to save him. When I went through the trouble to keep him alive in NG+ by opening the shortcut early, the red-eyed bug never showed up, so I picked up neither his Armor nor the Sunlight Maggot. Of course I'd traded mine from NG for the Witch's ring, so ToG was... less fun.

    Doesn't the Witch Ring only allow you to talk to Qualaan?

    An I always do TotG with the lantern or blind, I only got the Helm once on accident and after I got Nito on a Char I didn't want to go to NG+ on xD
