So this is interesting and I now wish that the mound makers covenant actually worked like this without glitching.

Being a moundy was probably my favorite part of 3. Loved getting summoned to carefully orchestrated arenas and then going mad.

I was once summoned and helped a lad all the way up to a boss fight, but obvs couldn't pass through the mist with him. Which was a shame, the big hat lad was crying out for my help.

Then again, I got super into being a sunbro for a couple of days after I defeated

Yeah I still had tonnes of fun with the multiplayer and that covenant especially, that glitch just shows they could have done so much more. I watched a video of a guy doing it today and at the end it was him and five others absoluting tanking the hell out of

Speaking of the multiplayer, today was the first time I was invaded by a human controlled red'n. However, as I don't know what all the etiquette is, he just did a shield dance and ran round me. So I ignored him and

Dark Souls III is weird compared to the test of the series, lore wise. What's there is much easier to find and put together than in previous games but there seem to be less answers to find. A lot of stuff is just left vague, whereas in the original it was subtly told but it was all there if you looked.

Do you think the unresolved story elements mean that there'll be a Dark Souls IV?

I really, really hope not.

The story was satisfyingly wrapped up in Dark Souls. Dark Souls II was an interesting exploration of smaller stories within that same cosmology. Dark Souls III tries to be an ending to that cosmology, and in those aspects is very obvious and predictable. On the other hand, it also introduces new smaller stories and characters and factions, and its these which are not explored to my satisfaction. If we did get a Dark Souls IV, in keeping with the series so far it wouldn't really explore these aspects anyway.

As it is, though, although III was very enjoyable to play, most of the world felt like things we've seen before, and the story didn't have the very personal artistic touch or the smart characterisation and storytelling. I'd much prefer to see the series left alone and see the developers put their energy into something new and original.

Nah, there's no such thing as doing it wrong in fact apart from a couple of coop summons I stayed well clear of it in DaS as I just didn't think it was fun.

I thought the multiplayer elements of DaS were immensely irritating. I found health maintenance and the plodding pace of combat in general stressful enough without some edgelord coming over here and taking my souls. Playing on Steam I don't think I ever got invaded, but I beat the game a second (and third, God knows why) time with for a mate on 360, and Anor Londo invasions started taking the piss.

I was happier with 3's probably because I found the combat much more fluid, but also because it was much easier to find most of the guilds and stuff early on. I dunno. Maybe I just found the stakes in 3 much lower than in 1 because of how you can warp between bonfires, and how the game is more linear, and so that was enough to coax me into engaging in a little PvP.

That said, there were still times I turned my internet off because the invasions were getting a little out of hand in areas I just wanted to focus on getting through.

The lag was also atrocious in DaS as well, god knows how many times I rubber banded into being back stabbed after thinking I'd made an escape.

I'd say yer bang on about all of that especially the combat part - before the game came out I loved the comparisons to Bloodborne as I absolutely loved the pvp in that game just a shame it was limited to certain areas/situations.

Right. Right, I'm done with Dark Souls for now. Today I

  • Got to Manus in the DLC and decided he was a bit hard.
  • Went and did the whole painted world (beating Priscilla for the first time.)
  • Beat Kalameet
  • Beat Manus, wrapped up the DLC.
  • Killed Gwyn, got the dark lord ending and watched the end credits.


I can't think of another game I've completed this exhaustively twice and been itching to return to. I know one day I'll do a Onebro run, but I'm gonna give it a rest for now. (That said, I'll still be voraciously consuming podcasts and videos and articles and books and artworks and anything else). But it's good to have played every little bit of content now, so I can look forward to the Switch and other games and know I'll actually play them instead of just more Dark Souls!

Artorias of the Abyss is great by the way, get it played lads.

Anyway. Yeah.Dark Souls. Solid 7/10.

If you haven't already, I recommend checking out EpicNameBro's "From the Dark" playthrough - it's the most extensive playthrough I've ever watched, and covers what feels like literally everything in Dark Souls. You'll be itching to experience it again for yourself after watching.

Once I'm done, I'll probably watch that From the Dark series; I've never actually watched anyone else play the original.

The Nameless King is probably the hardest fight in the series; took me many an evening before I finally beat him mano e mano with a big ol' sword.

I thought I'd aced the game; however I still clocked in 68 hours. One day I'll go back and try and play with a magic person; so far, from one to three I've been Fat Tank, I Don't Know What I'm Doing and Super Leapy Assassin.

That's the ending most of us went through. I've got another save file sat half way through a run to the complex Londor ending but I'm a bit soulsed out for the time being.

Oh, I saw there was an ending that looked like one of those "how to play as Luigi in Mario 64" rumours. I'll watch someone do it on YouTube, thanks!

The Londor ending is mental, but probably the most interesting ending. Worth looking it up, at least.
