So yeah, From Software has revealed "Project Dark" as Dark Souls, which is officially NOT Demon's Souls 2... But we all know it is.



As much as I fucking rage and hate Demon's Souls, I always said I'd gladly play a sequel. This looks damn good, if not just as brutal as its forbearer. Word is they actually have "normal" co-op now too, you can play with your friends, not just random dicks. The world is more open and focused on exploration, and its now multiplatform.

So I've been playing the game a bit more "cereal" this time around. I must have fought like 6 bosses already? Pretty nice amount I think considering how much time I've put into the game. Beat that first minotaur dood on the bridge without much problem, of course I summoned random doob and he helped out big time. I didn't realize there was a ledge that I could have gone up on and done the jumping attack on him till after I beat him. Anyway proceeded onward ran into the dragon on the bridge, and went around to the bottom and avoided him for the moment. Housed that black knight at the top of the stare case in the beginning of Undead Parish and got his Greatsword. Summoned an NPC dood to help me fight these two gargoyle guys on the roof and owned them. Got a nice looking helmet too. Now I decided to go back and kill the dragon on the bridge, Demon's Souls style by stocking up on arrows and hitting him in the face. Got a pretty cool one handed sword which has made the game WAY easier. Killed him and got this pretty cool greatsword. the Claymore lying on the bridge.

Went into the forest and killed a huge butterfly. Then I did some more exploring and killed some blackknight guarding a bonfire area that lead to the dragon valley and got his spear. Exploring the dragon area I ran into what appeared to be dead looking dragon with some items near him. Now if demons soul has taught me anything it's that the dragon is anything but dead. So I chanced it and picked up the two items. Got some magical sword and a cool shield and died in the process.

So I decided to go back and explore the forest some more, see some crazy looking regi-ice looking doods and kill then get sniped by some crazy lochness monster hydra thing in the swamp. Respawn and decided to explore the tower near the regiice looking doods and continue to get one hit killed by the dood guarding the tower like a billion times untill I finally realized how easy he was to backstab. Got his ring which is super sweet on my tanky knight character. Explore lower regions of undead berg, save some magician and beat the Capra demon on my first try. Oh yeah I forgot to mention I was exploring the graveyard area behind firelink shrine. Everything was going good until I head into the lower catacombs area with the floating skulls and the skeletons I killed started coming back to life. (fuck this shit) ran the fuck out of there.

So now I don' know where to go.
Those catacombs are scary as shit and godamn skeletons are tough and keep coming back to life.
Londo ruins is scary as shit and has ghosts.
Dragon valley has a huge ass undead zombie dragon blocking my way forward(area is pretty hard too but not as scary as the other two)

I was thinking of just stocking up on arrows and killing the dragon like I did the other one. I dunno. Having a blast though.
