    Evan Rubinson running Dean Guitars into the ground

    Hey, I like the shirt. It's the sole redeeming feature. I only put myself through watching it to see how he walked it back, of course. For science. While I'll always stand by the ideal that independent re Interesting, and good to see some actual journalism on it. I knew the lawsuit was real -...

    Evan Rubinson running Dean Guitars into the ground

    For anyone still curious about this totally real and not highly fictionalized "news story"... This Stay Metal Ray guy delisted the video above and posted a followup: tl;dw "I wanna do a better job, an updated version of that video to explain myself and explain the news story and really...

    Evan Rubinson running Dean Guitars into the ground

    Anybody have a slightly more reputable source on any of this? Doesn't even have to be that much better, I'll settle for sharpie scrawled across a toilet stall wall in a dive bar over what we've got so far.

    Elden ring!

    Wait, are you at least setting an affinity on your weapon? If you're running Strength, Heavy will at least boost the Strength scaling, giving you a straight raw damage increase... even if you're not using the actual skill. Definitely having a time getting used to this dual-wield build. I keep...

    Elden ring!

    Rather than continuing on with my "Strength oh wait let's go Quality and let's use Polearms" build that was... okay at best I found a really cool Dragon/dual-wield Bleed build that I'm having fun with. Still putting it together, need another charm or two, but it's fun.

    Elden ring!

    He felt super easy. He killed me my first time because I biffed my roll after I dropped the jellyfish and got caught on the door frame, so he just pinned me against the door and went to town. Second time I got out of the way and just beat him right up, but got cocky at the end and he killed me -...

    Elden ring!

    I killed him at 25ish with the jellyfish and a... +3 Lordsworn's Heavy Greatsword I think, after many attempts. Took a minute for everything to start clicking in a way that the previous DS games never quite did. I wouldn't say you need the Spirit Ash summons, but they don't hurt. Some people...

    Elden ring!

    Haha I already knew that zone wasn't anywhere near the end, but earlier in Limgrave I had been teleported what seemed super far north - near the top of an elevator by a miniboss, if you know the place - and assumed that that area was towards the farthest north end of the map. I was a little...

    Elden ring!

    no time to talk about elden ring too busy playing elden ring I spent ~30 hours in Limgrave. I've now spent 20 in Liuria. I love this game. I can't remember the last time I spent so much time fucking around in a game yet still feeling like I'm progressing. Raya Lucaria could be the final...

    Elden ring!

    Where are you finding this to be the case? I haven't found that to be true at all, at least not in the majority of scenarios where I've used them. There's been a small handful of fights where I've dropped a summon and completely stomped the boss, but in all of those cases I've been overlevelled...

    Elden ring!

    It's not "an" item, though, there's a number of different ones that all behave differently, have different strengths, weaknesses, resistances, attacks, etc. "Having them appear" would defeat the purpose entirely - it's literally taking an aspect of customization away from you. You could make the...

    Elden ring!

    I don't know if I fully agree - I definitely had trouble with it initially, but once I levelled up some summons it was manageable if not trivial. The Lone Wolf summon is great for stuff like that. They distracted the boss and some of the adds while I cleaned them up, then focussed down the boss...

    Elden ring!

    It's just the Claymore (plus the boss drop) in Morne as far as big silly swords go, Zweihander is actually purchaseable from the Merchant on the west end of the zone. I mean you can probably find it elsewhere, but he has it for sure.

    Elden ring!

    Are you using mouse + keyboard or controller? The game is 100% intended to be played with a controller... I haven't heard of anyone, or at least many people, having success with mouse and keyboard. Reducing mouse sensitivity via DPI while in game might be an option in that case?

    Elden ring!

    32 hours in and just faced off against Godrick (twice) and failed (twice). These fights are fucking great. That second phase, damn. Glad I decided to take out the troll opposite the fog door and explore down that way first, some cool stuff there. Troll was super easy to cheese too haha.

    Elden ring!

    If it helps, I'm seeing a very, very slight delay after the button releases and the animation seems to begin, but it feels in line with medium rolls on DS3. PC with a USB 360 controller. I'm absolutely loving the game overall, I gotta say. There's definitely some technical issues with it, but...

    How to release your own music as a non signed artist?

    Yeah, recently had to do this with mine - I created both accounts separately, then merged them under the Artist account. I think it's under Settings > Fan? Something like that. That's all I did. Plus CDBaby for hard copies which is optional - I definitely spent more on those than I made...

    Teach me how to dial in a Djent bass tone like Nolly

    Based off the MIC Dingwalls I've played, absolutely none. They play like basses going for less than half what's being charged for them and that's if you luck out and find a good one - something I haven't.
