As some of you might or might not know, I've been immersed in the world of Dark Souls for awhile now. I remember thinking when JPW was playing Skyrim how he was totally nuts because I would never put that amount of time into a game. Well, I AM THAT GUY! 

I remember starting Dark Souls as part of my bean dive years ago. When starting out there are a few hints here and there about the gameplay mechanics. Not even 5 minutes into the game you reach a mini-boss where if you would try and fight them right at that moment, you'd be dead pretty quick. You eventually come back to this area with the help of some new found loot. (a better weapon and shield) Should you not know how to do a plunging attack, this fight would still be a tough one. I never made it past that fight because honestly, I thought this game would be something I'd never get back to.

There was an achievement on my To-Do List that I was trying to obtain so my motivation was just to get the achievement and call it a day. I did some research and found many videos on YouTube on which equipment is good and which will help you out that early in the game. Needless to say it made a big difference and turned the game from something I had no desire to play because it was too hard into something that was challenging but fun.

I've made some progress since then and actually finished the campaign / story. I'd have to say this game is light on the storyline and more of a series of tough boss fights. None the less, if you are doing this legit you will have to complete the story at least 2 times and then make it back to Anor Londo to forge the last boss weapon. (Gwyn's soul) 

For me this game hasn't gotten old and has actually been quite enjoyable. It's been extremely difficult at points but I find when you are finally able to take down a boss, it's very rewarding! 

Praise the Sun!
