One More Time
I did it! In record time too. I wish I could be saying that about a Dark Souls speedrun, but I'm just not there yet. I did complete my new game plus run though. According to the video, I must be learning something. It didn't take me an hour like the other 3 times. Only 15 minutes.
I'm pretty happy about that. Being able to start my third and final run means I'm that much closer to being finished with this game. Having it all on YouTube means I can finally have myself in the background when I just need something on for background noise.
There is some danger ahead though. Remember how much I sucked at the Nameless King fight? Turns out, I have to beat him on the third run for access to a ring. I was able to skip him during this particular run, but now.. he's looming over my future: stronger, with a whole can of salt and a jar for my tears.
At this point, can I really complain though? Dark Souls made me go this far out of the way for achievements. I can't say I didn't expect to be forced to do something I didn't want to. Its basically the entire game. Dark Souls wants to be hard and frustrating. Which is why winning feels that much better. Its a pretty simple formula. Some people make the game look so easy though. I guess it becomes that way at some point. When bosses are no longer intimidating, you learn not to mash buttons, and you keep your composure at all times.
That will never be me.
Here are the last two videos from my New Game+ Ring Collector series. Its not much, but hey.. I did it though.
And here's one of many real challenges to put yourself through in Dark Souls.
