Devil May Cry 4 – The Complications of Blogging.

This is the end of a tough week for writing.


So I started writing about DMC4’s Lady’s long range weapon and combat style and how it is harder to get SSS with her because of her ranged style, then I gained a B rank in close quarters with guns.  I then watched several players on SSS runs with Lady so I was proven wrong… then I thought I noticed a pattern as Lady’s actions were long range at close quarters so maybe that’s why it’s SSS.

Then it became apparent that these were 2nd run characters were they had played DC with Dante and Nero and not playing Lady with all the energy gained from previous rounds, then…

Dark Souls – The House Rules!!!

So part 1 I talked about the rulebook that I believed was not up to scratch


For part 2 I’m looking at something else, when a player intentionally removes a rule or reads a rule wrongly (both can happen and I have experience on both).  However I do not see misreading a rule as a bad thing… especially if it means that something comes out of it.

Dark Souls – Two in One

Image result for dark souls board game

I was having a hard time deciding what to do… however I found that I struggled to decide exactly what I wanted to write.  There were too many ideas…


However I recently played Dark Souls the Board Game and it actually gave me two topics and I think that they are the most interesting; rules and rulebooks.  So we’ll start with Rulebooks.
