Every time you die, do a set of pushups. By the time you beat the game you'll be SWOLE!

Just recall the load times from games from last generation and be happy they're not the same?

If you want, you could just load an ME elevator simulator and enjoy that during the load times.

40 seconds in a fast food, instagram world must be a terrible thing. Patience is an lost art these days.

freshslicepizza1521d ago

on hard games years ago like battletoads was it 40 seconds or longer to try again if you died?

Not dying has helped a bit. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You can not be an impatient fool and take the time to surf the web with your phone or laptop or maybe even rest your eyes. Some logical though will do you wonders won't it.

They could have made the loading screen better... Instead of bloodborne every time, just like destiny with lame load times... You'd think by now they would do interesting things with the load times even if it's just random different pics and stuff..

I think like I said below, they want you to think about what just happened, not be looking at concept art and the like. You need to focus.

Still, Ive always liked games that have hints and tips in the load screens. I bet theres a lot of useful information they could tell you but arent. From Software are just mean man.

I see your point... But I'm dying often right now and it's usually just over something dumb, I'm in the beginning, so not much to think about but tips would of been nice!

When do I get a weapon? It's brutal fighting with my hands! Took a while before I made progress to the first save point. Got up to the ppl at the bond fire but just can't work up the nerve to take them all on with my bare hands lol... I been trying to just bait them one by one and after learning how to use the molotove with out pausing the game was a little too late cause I used them all!

Brutal game..

I see I have a weapon in inventory but the "use" it icon is faded out.

Hit options and equip it on the quick menu that pops up. Holy shit dude, equip a weapon immediately lol

You need to equip a weapon. Did you get weapons from those weird creatures? When you first die fighting the Wolf, it takes you to the garden Where you can read lot's of tips. There the creatures offer you weapons. After you receive them..

Press Options. Then click the first tab to equip weapons. First 2 boxes are for the right hand. Next two for the left hand.

Hahaha.. I can't believe you're fighting with your bare hands against those village people.
