Dark Souls Full Play | Episode 18 – Iron Golems Don’t Like Lightning

Iron Golems and Lightning just don’t mix.  Who would’ve guessed?  In this episode I take on the Iron Golem as he attempts to block the way to Anor Londo and ultimately fails.

As I keep moving forward in this game, I continue to be filled with a very deep satisfaction of my progress.  I know it’s just a game, but as the game is very difficult, when you are able to make a lot of progress it all feels a lot more rewarding.  Situations and fights that would have meant instant death for me before, are now becoming easier and common place.  Sure, there are still some very difficult parts, but I feel like I have the tools necessary to continue and succeed.  This kind of feeling is definitely a tad bit different than other games that I play, so it’s very refreshing to go through this and document it.

The concept of the full game playthrough is that a new video will be uploaded every weekday, Monday thru Friday. I will continue to do this until I have beaten the game in question. For my first time out, a poll was administered on our Facebook Page, and our fans determined that I would be playing the punishing, but entertaining game, Dark Souls.
