Dark Souls Full Play | Episode 5 – One Bell Rung, Two Gargoyles Dead

I have survived one week of Dark Souls!  Pop open the champagne!

This has been a really exciting week for me, and I’m glad that people are enjoying the Full Play series so much.  It has already inspired a few of you out there to start playing Dark Souls, and for that I’m really glad.  Dark Souls has a lot of good complexity to it that make it very rewarding once you get into it, and I’m glad that people are using this series as an entry point.  That just strengthens my resolve and gets me more excited for week two!

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.

To keep up with the Full Play, you can continue to come back to the main website, or you can Subscribe to our YouTube Channel for constant updates.

    • I did some quick reading up and the Prowling Demon (aka Titanite Demon) has no tail item, so you can go about stabbing it to death.

      Apparently it’s weakest melee spot is the left side behind the arm as the swing fails to reach there, your only downfall is the leaping attack, but that can be dodge-rolled as soon as he leaps. It is also weak to lightning despite wielding it.
