Original Thread: Praise the Sun! Let's Play Dark Souls



Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to the prior Playstation 3 Exclusive Demon's Souls. Just like it's counterpart Dark Souls is considered extremely hard and punishing. Dark Souls' plot is very minimalistic relying heavily on the environment and item descriptions to tell the plot. We as the chosen undead journey to Lordran to change the fate of the world. A task that would seem bigger than us.

In this LP we're going through all the secrets and tricks in the game as well as exploring the new areas. (Once the 3 month rule on that has played it's course) As we do this we will be in human forum as much as possible. Doing this will open us up to the second part of Dark Souls which is the PvP aspect. At any point in time, out of bonfires and bosses, we can be invaded and stuck fighting another person online. Being this is the PC version there ARE PROBLEMS WITH THIS. Mainly the fact that there are people already hacking being un-killiable and using trainers. I'm not sure the numbers of cheaters to not, but let's hope it's 1 out of 10 people cheating while the rest are playing legitimate.

Our main game though is running through as a Pyromancer in an informative manor, but also not abusing the magic that is what makes the Pyromancer "Over-powered"

On the topic of spoilers. I really don't mind that you do post spoilers. Just remember to USE THE SPOILER TAGS FOR SPOILERS. ANYTHING WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN TO YET GETS SPOILER TAGS! Thank you and have a nice day.
