Long live NoNolesNeckin.

Ya fuckin' ganderneck.
There's also a room just before the Firesage's place I forgot to mention. It's just a weird hallway with dead trees, strange arachnoid things that aren't hostile, and a door that won't open—even after all I've done so far. The spiders aren't hostile, even though I had a kneejerk reaction and killed one. Not sure what else I have to do here.
If you want a small hint about that door:

Spoiler
It will open but you have to sacrifice a ton of humanity.
And another fairly significant hint about it and and NPC
You have to open this door to save Solaire from going mad.

i figured there was probably a way to save him or something, but i didn't have the faintest idea what to do

game doesn't exactly give you any hints about it either, but whatever, i'm sure it happens to everyone

Ah missed that. Your updates are usually longer.

The hat you get from killing (or saving) Solaire is great to explore the Tomb Of Giants, so I always do Izalith first.

so, i just had a heated argument with a friend that has caused me to triple down on my total opposition to all video game DLC

effective right now, i'm making the moral decision to boycott all DLC (even free stuff), and this includes dark souls

simply put, i'm never paying for "extra" content that should already be on the disc, and i'm making no exceptions—that means i don't give a fuck if the content was developed after the game was released, and i don't even care if it's free, because if it's free, then there's no reason i should have to manually download it in the first place

don't even try to argue with me on this, because i'm not budging—i'm never buying another DLC package again, for any game

so, sorry if you were looking forward to that, but it's guaranteed not happening, at least in this playthrough

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
Good, paid DLC is a shit practice that needs to go away.

DLC shouldn't exist

put it all in the game or make a new one, and if you absolutely want to have extra content, it should absolutely be free

why should people be obliged to spend more money than the game is worth on extra content, especially if it's just some pointless cosmetic tchotchke, and why is it okay to prey on people's stupidity knowing they're going to buy this useless garbage regardless of how extortionate the rates are

when you buy a game, are you okay with the fact that you're not playing a completed product

99% of games aren't worth full retail price anyway, so having us pay even more for DLC is fucking criminal

Say I'm a game developer, why should I be obliged to create free content or otherwise make another game, which in many cases might not happen? The game is a complete product, DLC expansions are just that, extra content. And games may seem overpriced but the developers aren't exactly making a killing off of it, they only make a certain percentage.

You don't HAVE to buy anything.

they aren't obliged to

you make it if you want to

and if none of them ever want to because they know they won't make money off it anyway, then good, fuck them

lmao

If a game has DLC, it seizes to be a complete game until it's installed. You can't have a completed game be more than complete. That doesn't make any sense. Completed means finished, it's done.

I don't care

If you want to have a complete game, yes, you do.

Dark Souls DLC is fine to me. When you have a fully complete game, especially one that's supposed to be the last in the series (as with DKS3) paying 20 bucks for a true add-on to that game is worth it in my eyes.

DLC like Destiny had on the other hand, which is basically just selling cut content, is a shit anti-consumer practice that needs to go extinct.
