Dark Souls Full Play | Episode 31 – Came Here to Kill You, But Sure I’ll Join Your Covenant

Submitted by on June 4, 2012 – 10:27 AMNo Comment | 217 views

I may have outleveled Pinwheel just a tiny bitWell, it’s about time to enter the catacombs and go after Nito.  The catacombs area is actually interesting in that it’s designed for lower level characters in mind, yet contains one of the biggest bosses in the entire game.  Most of the enemies in the area don’t hit that hard, and actually don’t have that much health.  The difference though is that most of the undead creatures in here will come back to life unless you defeat them with a Divine weapon, which can be difficult to procure early on in the game.  So while things are easily defeated, the idea that you can clear this area at early levels is far fetched as you will probably get swamped.

For our little journey though, we try and clear a path to the Pinwheel boss, and find ourselves a skull lantern so that we can light our path in the Tomb of the Giants.

We’re rapidly approaching the end of our playthrough and it’s getting very exciting!  What we ask of viewers now though, is to leave comments and tell us what you would like Joey V to play for his next Full Play.  It could obviously be a past game if you so desired, but it could also be a game that hasn’t come out yet.  Just let us know what you would be interested in and we’ll take the best responses and put them to a vote on the g33kWatch Website / Facebook.
