It's taken me a long time and a lot of practice but I've made my peace with the end game difficulty of Elden Ring. I still think it could have ramped up a little more linearly but I think the last few bosses are about right, as long as you get over yourself and use the tools the game gives you, i.e. the Spirit Ash summons.
Mimic Tear might be a tad too powerful, but you don't have to use it, there's many others to choose from. Though for my level of play Mimic Tear is often a good choice.
Having the right Crystal Tears in your Flask of Wondrous Physick, and actually using the flask, is also key.
I still wish there was a bit less repetition in the bosses but overall I just love the game and have continued to play (almost) nothing else since it was released. The only thing I have played was a couple of hours of Stray, which I'll get back to at some point but I had an Elden Ring itch I had to scratch.
Formula 1, birdsite
Arguing with someone on birdsite about how dangerous porpoising is potentially to drivers and they bought up a rider dying every year in MotoGP to claim F1 is safe in comparison and I just... how can you not see that as a tragedy in itself and not something you can use as an excuse? Some people have no regard for human life and it's terrifying.

On this #juneteenth, you can do a couple of things.
If you don't know what #juneteenth is, please look it up and don't harass Black folks about and/or give money to Black folks, especially those in the LGBTQI+ community as it is Pride month.
Do not, I repeat, do not harass Black folks to explain to you what #juneteenth is. If you're reading this, that means you're on the internet too. Embrace that.

Any good #gameDev tools that are no code? I can code but I find things like Unity where it’s a mix of code and GUI very confusing and I’m doing some web dev as well so don’t feel like code-only game dev.
I'm on in 7 or 8 minutes, watch if you can
These bosses either need way less HP, or to hit way less hard, or maybe even a bit of both. Having to fight Radagon again EVERY time you want to fight Elden Beast is just so annoying. It's not like Genichiro before Isshin in Sekiro, that fight is a satisfying demonstration of how far Wolf has come since last time, and it's easy to just demolish him and move on to the fight proper. Radagon on the other hand has a massive health pool, hits extremely hard and has a load of annoying delayed attacks and teleports. I really miss the rhythm of Sekiro. I hope From do more stuff like Sekiro and Bloodborne because I don't think I want more in the vein of Elden Ring
I like Dark Souls. And Bloodborne. And Dark Souls III. And Sekiro. But not Dark Souls II
