Have you ever thought to yourself “I should play all the Souls games in order and do all the bosses!”? No? You are a smarter person then I then!
But since I am doing this here are the rules: There aren’t any I’m just going to play them at my own pace over the course of the next year or two ¯\ _ (ツ)_/¯
But some guidelines are in place! When doable all bosses should be taken down (Might skip Darklurker it’s just a pain to get to)! All DLC must be done! No summoning because I have more fun that way and also I will mostly be playing the PC versions so playing online is a nightmare! Lots of exclamation points must be used at all times. I will try to do NPC questlines where I can! I will not be streaming or recording this in any way so please don’t ask me to thanks in advanced!
Now the current plan for character builds:
Demon’s Souls: Magic build based around the Fire Epee thing which means I need to murder like four innocent people according to a wiki so sorry NPCs I need that sword more than I need that grass you sell in very inconvenient locations! Also this is the only Souls game I have never finished so I am going to do it in the easiest way possible.
Dark Souls: For this I will most likely do a faith build as this is the only game where that is still viable as the other games nerfed magic and faith to hell and back to varying degrees and faith gets hit the hardest in II and III. Might also do a build based around Velka’s Rapier as it looks cool and I like magic in DS 1 a lot, not sure yet!
Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin I’m thinking a hex build based around the sword and shield that let you cast spells and miracles respectively as that sounds cool! Plus I can respec later so I can fix it when that idea goes bad and I want to whack things real hard with a big ass sword!
Bloodborne: Arcane build based around the cane and Moonlight Blade as I already did a bloodtinge and skill build and this arcane build can double as a strength build anyways!
Dark Souls III: I’m think a Pyromancer as the flame weapon enchant spell in this looks really cool on dual scimitars! This is like years away though so who knows?! (Editors Note: Oh I was so naive…)
Q: Are you really going to do this?
Q: Why is this a forum thread and not you alone in your bedroom for hours on end like every other time you’ve played the Souls games?
A: To chronicle my misadventures in my favorite game series and so that people may join me as they wish and share thought and opinions on the games in the series they have played and to see how they compare to my own! Also you’re weirdly judgemental comically exaggerated voice in my head!
Q: Is it hard to play Souls games with fox paws?
A: I use a DDR pad it’s fine!
Q: If you aren’t playing on a set timeline how can others join you?
A: I will announce when I start a new game with a post with my characters face and thoughts on the early game! Starting with:
