Who’s laughing now, From Software?
The video game that challenged my patience like no other. Kept spitting in my face, dragging my hair and hitting with a spoon – but finally, I’ve bested it! .. By completing every single achievment it had to offer.
It was a long and tough road to glory.. And the fun thing is, the dead end is still out of sight (So far I’ve spent 160 hours in it). I have yet to complete the game in more challenging manner and my current goal is to finish it on Soul Level 1.
So yeah, like a damn neanderthal man running around with club and hitting demons for poor damage in the dark fantasy world that includes Dragon Vaginas who would love to have me inside (Okay I think I crossed the line there). And then I will probably try beating the NG+ mode still keeping SL1 and fighting only by using fist weapons. Sounds like a masochistic scheme to you? Well, not to Dark Souls players, the longer we play it, the more wicked we get.
Coming back to the achievment: It’s my first PS3 Platinum so I can’t compare, but I must say it was a bit horrible at times. Requiered some grinding and what not, but I liked the whole ‘planning ahead’ aspect of it. I actually made a to-do list and with each next checked thing I felt more and more satisfaction until eventually reaching the goal. It didn’t take long and it all depends on the game world’s knowledge, so I recommend it to everyone who went through first playthrough and still doesn’t feel like he had enough.
Well, now that I get enough of Dark Souls, I’m going back to Demon’s Souls for the platinum. Before I know it, GW2 will be out! (…Or it will be closer to the release date! Yeah! Optimism ftw)
