Tonight’s topic: SOULS!
So tonight is the night, Dark Souls 3 is upon us. I’ve conquered Demon Souls, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne before it. I never touched Dark Souls 2, maybe for the lack of Miyazaki. So going into it, I plan on going full Bronan the Brobarian. 2H-sword, with very little armor. Go for dodges and backstabs all day long. So basically, what I did in Bloodborne (Ludwig’s Holy Sword is godlike).
At the same time Ratchet and Clank is also releasing, and I plan to go crazy in that. Speaking of which, I commented on one of Fahey’s articles earlier today, and someone stated that playing both R&C and Dark Souls would maintain an equal sanity level. Which I responded that you’d be seeing Mr. Zurkon in Dark Souls. Which someone then commented this amazing thing:
“Souls? Mr. Zurkon does not need souls. His only currency is pain.”
Funniest thing I’ve read all day.
So onto the question for the night!
Souls games (Bloodborne too)! Which have you conquered? Which boss gave you the most issues? What kind of builds did you use?
Bonus Question: Favorite character who loves souls!?
Dark Souls not you jam? Ratchet and Clank FTW? Then talk amongst yourselves, the graveyard shift is open for business.
