Dark Souls Full Play | Episode 32 – One Shotting a Boss in the Darkness

Did I mention a lot of PVP happens in this area?What I had wanted to do, was just waltz right into the Tomb of Giants, kill Nito, and leave.  What I ended up doing though, was a lot more work.  From Software decided that they wanted to add a very dark level in the game where you needed a lantern to make your way through.  That’s all well and good, but equipment loadout priority becomes very important.  Not to mention that you have to remember where you are putting all of these items.

This episode has a lot of me bumbling around in the dark, begging to find a bonfire so that I can have a better checkpoint while I continue to search for Nito.  While it was frustrating, the amount of tension that this scene caused was very interesting.  Looking back on this level, I actually kind of like it.  If nothing else, at least From Software is brave enough to do something interesting in their games.

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.
