I DID IT!

I beat Dark Souls!  Also FUCK GWYN oh my god that fight!   The last boss of this game doesn't introduce anything you haven't faced before, he just delivers it faster, with longer reach, mixed physical and fire damage, and a smarter AI than anything you've fought makes it a beast of a fight.  Took me over 10 tries to be sure.

Sadly I didn't realize beating the game was going to immediately newGame+ me, so Dominion I don't know if I can join you for Jolly Co-Operation anymore :(

Congrats sir! Glad to hear you made it to the end!

It's cool. I get the feeling I'm sorta on the home stretch as well. If I hadn't picked up Stardew Valley I might've been more alongside you. Perhaps next weekend or so I can power through to the end on my own.

OMG I DID IT!

Jebus, that last boss. Totally awesome fight. Granted, I was able to save Solaire and hence brought him to the fight with me which makes it infinitely easier. Still had a couple of close calls. I kinda wish I beat him solo but honestly it felt pretty appropriate having Solaire there with me.

Couple of last thoughts: Fuck Tomb of the Giants and fuck doing death runs to Bed of Chaos. I am glad I went back and decided to take care of Demon Ruins to grab the light helm so Tomb of Giants would be easier. Still annoying though.

If I ever play the game again though I'm totally gonna roll up a magic user. Sounds like it'd be pretty fun and different.

And not long after finishing the game, apparently /r/darksouls has started up a "global restart" day, wherein folks are encouraged to start a brand new character and make the game feel like it did on launch.

Man if I hadn't just beaten the game and really wanted to get on Dark Souls 3 next, I would totally have taken part in this. Part of me still wants to roll up a sorcerer or pyromancer and play along for a couple of hours at least.

Same guy who made one of the goofy videos I posted over on Stupid Funny Crap actually made this pretty Dark Souls music video called "We are the souls (new ending)." 

Highly recommend everyone whose beaten Dark Souls (or has functional knowledge of most of the game's major characters and encounters) check this out.

EDIT: Other cool Dark Souls stuff on his channel includes this Ornstien themed video using One Punch Man music.   Also this funny video just called "Asylum.bsp" I won't spoil the joke.

Vatti Vidya got his hands on a early version of the Remaster and made comments about how little as changed.  For me the big selling point of this has been, and will continue to be "oh crap Dark Souls on Switch i can play this on the go," so they don't have to do much to get me to buy it.
