Dark Souls Full Play | Episode 4 – Assassination of an Assassin

Last episode I took out a rather impressive looking armored boar mini-boss.  Yay!  This time around, we enter the Undead Parish and get a lot more than we bargained for.  What should’ve been a boss attempt on the Tower Gargoyles, turns into a feud with a golden armored assassin that requires me to head back to Firelink Shrine and upgrade.  There will be victory in today’s episode … there will also be a lot of death as you have come to know and expect.  I hope that it continues to entertain you.

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.

  1. More Blood for the Blood God! More Death..for the Death..Throne? Shut up!

    On the back of all this I have started a new game for Dark Souls, I’m Drake Sworded up and ready to enter the lower levels under the parish and face off the MechaBoar. I expect to be gored into many walls.

  2. I’m liking the live commentary for this game. Adding it later has benefits but in a game of failure the live string of curses that inevitable result are amusing :p

    I just ordered a copy for 360 online which should turn up sometime next week. The PS3 version probably has better graphics but I much prefer the 360 controller. This looks like it will be an interesting game to play.
