Help me out guys, I'm triyng to make another one of my poll threads, this time for FromSoftware, and I'm worried I might overlook an early title.

So far I've got:
King's Field
Shadow Tower
Eternal Ring
Demon's Souls / Remake
Dark Souls
DS 2
DS 3
Bloodbourne
Sekiro

Am I missing any key titles? It's not meant to be an exhaustive list of FromSoft games, mostly just those along the Souls-like timeline

are those all souls-like? i mean if i'm making a poll asking specifically for souls-like titles would they have to be in there alongside dark souls etc?
Ah, no, lol. Just some of their popular ones. Armored Core were tough games, but not Souls-like from what I remember.

what do my awesome poops have to do with random words over an anime picture
the ecstacy associated with a cavernous void'ing could make anybody sympathise with text like that - if only for a moment.

not unlike the supremely agreeable sensation that comes with bustin' nutz

What does your ex Stacy with a cavernous void have to do with anything here. I am so confused.

I've made a terrible mistake. I had taco bell for dinner.
Taco Bell has started spreading around England. One opened in my town, and I’m always like to try new food but I don’t remember hearing about a good experience at Taco Bell. Having said that, we got boneless KFC years before USA seemed to, and maybe our food laws will result in something edible.

I've had friends from all over the world (and done a little travel myself), and one thing that seems consistent is that US fastfood chains offer entirely much more varied and better food overseas than they do here. I remember thinking that the veggie nuggets from Burger King in Germany and their veggie burgers were the bomb - and this was about ten years ago. Long before the veggie alternatives were a thing here. KFC has wild options outside of the US, while their menu here remains largely unchanged from twenty years ago. Etc.

So I woke up this morning already in a bad mood, and really not wanting to go in to work. But, you know, we all got bills to pay so begrudgingly force myself to shower, dress, and make the drive in. I get to the office and there’s two police cars parked outside the building. My mind begins to wonder as to why they’re here. I approach the entrance, but am stopped by an officer. I show them my ID, they radio in, and I’m given permission to enter.

The office is a fucking mess. Paperwork and folders are strewn everywhere, the fish tank has been smashed, most of the desks and chairs have been destroyed, and the lights are hanging from the ceiling. I make my way to my own personal office, and Jesus, I wish I’d stayed in bed. My laptop has been swiped, along with my office PC, my personal photos have been smashed and torn to shreds, some sort of oil had been poured everywhere, and ‘WHITE COLLAR SCUM’ daubed on the wall in what I can only hope is brown paint.

Fuck this. I’m going back home to sleep before the police do their routine interviews and shit. I didn’t think this sort of thing happened in real life, yet here we are.

Good lord. Are they suspecting a disgruntled ex employee or something?

I had no idea it was like that until the internet lit up because KFC was introducing boneless chicken, then after I went through different possibilities like me seeing old news or me having crunched through bones this whole time without knowing it, I realised that America didn't have what we've had since before I first had KFC as a kid.

I assume America doesn't get Aberdeen Angus burgers in Burger King, either

I wonder what else we take for granted over here from fast food companies that didn't even originate here.

We're also getting a Wendy's, which is weird.

Someone that didn't obviously pass the interview stage.
You actually got it in one. I just got home, and had a missed call on my phone (turned it off because stress) and it was my manager. The guy handed himself in. He was apparently quite upset he didn’t get the job and thought we were looking down on him. Police arrested him for breaking and entering, criminal damage, and theft. All I know so far. Head office are sending a team to sort the office out, and I’m to pick up a temporary replacement laptop later so I can work from home until it’s finished, most likely Monday.

Hey fun fact gaf did you know that a water cooler can explode?...

Me neither that's why it was such a surprise to me when it happened.
And the best part I wasn't even touching anything about the cpu, I just replaced an hdd.I just removed the side panel leaned the computer and it exploded right away sending boiling liquid and vapor through my arm and face...
What a great year it has been so far to me, luckily for me, I don't think my GPU fried but I lost CPU and motherboard...Yay.
I was thinking of upgrading but in a year or two.
I will get another cpu and motherboard tomorrow hoping that it didn't fry my power supply simply because I don't want to wait to get another one.
Thankfully I had a bit of money on the side and it will be christmas soon but damn it was a bad day.So to all you guys be carefull with your watercooling sometimes it can explodes for no reasons ... I suspect it was badly installed but am suprised it could last about 10 years like that.

Oh man that sucks, but if the GPU is okay, at least you can get back running quick without sitting in queues for months or buying from a scalper.

I've never felt comfortable with water cooling. I tried it once about 10-15 years ago and quickly decided it was a bad idea and then went back to fans.

Yeah me neither, I got the computer as a gift and I had even forgotten that it was watercooled.It is just when I started to be able to see again and washed off the liquid of me that I understood.But yeah you're right I do hope my GPU is fine because that would make the price and the wait way bigger.

Sorry to hear man. Hopefully no medical attention needed. I’ve always steered clear of water cooling out of caution. Air cooling has worked well for me but I hardly ever feel the need to overclock.

See, this is why I’ve always been too anxious about building my own PC from scratch. There’s so much that could go wrong. Exploding water coolers are just one of the many dangers. I’m glad you’re all good though, mate.

In other computing news, I picked up my temp work laptop. It’s running Windows XP, and I love it for that. I have full access to regedit and Command Prompt, so I might do some poking around to see if I can get it to run smoother, though. I had Minecraft installed on the one that got pinched. I should be getting that back once investigations are done.

Yep I would never try to install a water cooling myself, the risks are too high and are not worth the gains.My pc was prebuilt and worked fine for about 10 years of quite intense usage, so maybe it was just time to upgrade.Anyway , tomorrow if my power supply hasn't died, I'll be rocking an i7 12700K with 32Go of ram coupled with an RTX 2080 so I should be good for this gen.

That's the first game I'm going to play.

Then Demon's Souls.
Oh I tried Demon's Souls but it's not really my type of games (except Bloodborne, I don't know why but it clicked with this game).If you can Spiderman has a nice feeling when you are swinging around the city, there a slight resistance toward the end of the trigger but it's still soft, I really like it.

I have Spider-Man as well. Have not played it on the PS4, so I purchased the MM Deluxe one so I can play both games.

You'll feel it is great subtle but great and I don't if it is because I changed my sound system but Demon's Souls sounds really good, so you will be happy if you are into atmospheric almost overwhelming sound presence.
