LoL now your character really looks like one of the Nazghul.
The screenshots are really atmospheric, especially the second one.
Yes, the game is amazing for it's scenery as well as everything else.
I'm going round checking all the places I've been and making sure I find everything I possibly can before doing the final areas, which in themselves are very big. Tonight I went into a giant tree at the bottom of Blight Town...everyone's favourite place to hate...
. I don't actually mind it, but it's very precarious with lot's of ledges and places to fall from. Some people have frame rate issues since it's a very closed in area, but I think that's mainly the console versions. It's fine for me.
The Great Ash Lake...very beautiful except for the Curse Frogs. Luckily I had a Curse Removal Stone on hand since I was cursed getting down the tree on narrow branches. When you are Cursed you have 1/2 health until you get cured or buy a Removal Stone. The only thing being cursed is good for is fighting the ghosts in New Londo Ruins since you can only damage them in that state, but it's not recommended. There is another safer method.
My current stats.
One of the Arch Trees. The armour is the Crimson Set which is good for mages. I don't use it but thought a change would be nice for a screenshot. The sword is called The Washing Pole, a very large Katana.
The second Hydra in the game. This one is harder and it comes into shore after you, whereas the 1st one stays out of reach until it attacks with it's heads. even so, this fight didn't take as long, probably because it came to me and was easier to hit.
Hydra 2. Spitting water which knocks you down even with a 100% stability shield. That is if you don't roll away and dodge.
