Priscilla was originally supposed to fulfill the role of caretaker like the Maiden in Black did back in Demon Souls. It was intended for her level you up with souls like you would at a bonfire. Also, you would need her blessing or power or whatever to kill the Lords. Of course, the developers decided to go in a different direction so all that was cut and her role was changed.

Oh, during all of that stuff, I naturally decided to upgrade all my shit as much as I reasonably could, revisiting every blacksmith to do so—I won't be grinding for Chunks or Slabs, though.

There was something I noticed when revisiting the Undead Parish, though, that I thought was pretty cool—a new item appeared in the same spot on the altar where I found (and dimwittedly consumed) my first Firekeeper Soul. It was a bunch of Humanity, maybe 5 or 7, bunched up with a regular Pendant—the same Pendant that has no effect that you can take as your starting gift. I just found it here.

I don't know why, but I thought it was amusing.
OH FUCK

You absolute fucking melt

in my defense, i obviously haven't been to that altar lately, so i never even knew she was there

anyway, i decided it was time for petrus to die—didn't solve anything, but he deserved it

i knew there was something fucky about him, even the pardoner warns you, i just never expected what he was about to do

remember that group of clerics that goes into the catacombs, but they all go hollow

petrus stays back the whole time being all creepy and foreboding, and after you rescue the girl, apparently you can find her at the altar where you fight the gargoyles in the undead parish, selling you miracles you can't get anywhere else

if you don't kill petrus after clearing the tomb of the giants, though, he kills her like lautrec kills the firekeeper and acts innocent the next time you speak to him—the only thing you'll find in her place is 7 humanities and a pendant

i don't know why he does it, but that's what happens—and you can tell, because he drops the girl's talisman and shit if you kill him after the fact

Nah, always knew he was a dick cause he rode out when they needed him, just never knew the end to her quest line. Always figured she just fucked off after you save her.

Are you going to play Bloodborne? It's basically just an uglier Souls with a top hat and a pimp cane, but a lot of people like it.

That oversimplify it for sure. The key difference is the level of agression that Bloodborne nessesitates is comparison to the souls games.

Also what's with the avatar? Why is everyone I know jumping on Kill La Kill again like it just came out.

And the environments and style are unpleasant and boring to look at.

And I dunno, I like rotating between series I like.

Bloodborne is the best single player experience out of the souls series, imo.

I dunno man, I thought bloodbourne was beautiful throughout and they managed a consistent style unlike some of the souls entries.

started up a new file to record boss videos for all the bosses i couldn't get footage of, due to not having a capture card at the time

i tried to impose a simple challenge to make things interesting, but it wound up making things pathetically easy and borderline pointless, but whaaaaaaatever

the final update will be posted soon enough thereafter

It was like staring at the inside of a bin bag for hours. Wasn't a fan of the whole gloomy purples and greys at all.

It's partially because of that, yeah. Most people fight him earlier into the game than that so you're probably above the level and gear that you're "expected" to face him with. The other reason is just your great shield. The main reason people struggle with Stray is because of his AoE fire explosion attack. The idea is that you can avoid this by getting behind him since his body blocks the blast for you. Trying to block with a normal shield or roll through it will hurt you badly. You would have died in those first 10 seconds of the video if it wasn't for the great shield taking the hit.

But yeah, he's a pretty easy boss either way. You can just bait out an attack, run away and then have at him over and over. It's just that he can easily put you in a really bad situation as a light/nimble character. A single leap of his can lock you in a corner or up against a wall. If he follows up with the explosion and you don't have something beefy to block with, you're in trouble.
