    Most Disturbing Thing About Dark Souls

    Post by Samurainova on Wed Jan 30, 2013 12:34 am

    This is open to any souls game, but, what is the most disturbing thing about Dark or Demon souls to you? What unsettles you the most about either game?

    Hmm...I didn't like how in Demon souls there was a theory that everyone lied and manipulated you except for the one crazy guy you ignored because he was well...crazy.

    It ends...

    Anyway most disturbing thing to me is how either way the serpents controling you win. You burn and they win, you start the age of man and they win.

    I find the Piascas to be one of the most disturbing things in the Souls series. The fact that they used to be women makes it much worse.

    I freaked out when I first saw the plague babies in Demon Souls. I still don't go down into those waters when I'm fighting Astraea.

    I'd have to say its all them cosplayers. Seriously, you murder a guy/gal in cold blood, take their stuff and wear it like a coat! You're sick and should be put down for the good of (my) humanity. Let's not even get into how we let Quelaags sissypoo think we're her because we have her soul on us.

    For in-game things, I'd have to say the Octopus guards in Demon's Soul's still keep me on my feet even to this day. For Dark Souls, I'd say its those lightning ghosts in New Londo. Someone pointed out that they're holding babies, which more than implies that the Sealers were willing to let even babies drown to stop the Darkwraiths.

    The dialogue Beatrice gives you with the cap on is pretty horrific. The idea of being raped over and over by the fat merchant of all things. *shudder*

    The black ghost type things in the Chasm of the Abyss. They just look so... forlorn. Also, you're in a dark place, and they have scary glowing eyes.

    Hearing the two at the back cry, and seeing how submissive they are, is a bit of an eye-opener!

    But for me the most disturbing thing is how two perfectly innocent looking games could so easily take over my life! lol

    The most disturbing thing for me was how the game seems to have a prejudice against Priscilla. Antithesis to all life? Abomination who had no place in this world? It's a bit harsh considering she's the only boss who lets you go free, and just wants to be left alone. Even Gwyndolin gets all huffy just cos you went slightly near a giant empty coffin.

    I think Priscilla is intended to contrast what Anor Londo devolved into. She's painted (get it? ha ha ha) as the opposite of the power brokers/movers and shakers of the Anor Londo pantheon. She's a wretch, an outcast, the worst of the worst in their opinion ("their" indicating Anor Londo peeps, not From).


    Turns out she's pretty nice. So in reality, she's there for commentary about what the rest of them became.

    Actually, that's very similar to real life.

    Also, dido on the Tower of Latria. I especially thought the giant heart was somewhat creepy.

    The Maiden Astria boss fight was also disturbing. She keeps telling you to stop the whole time you fight her.

    You mean Yuria? I thought they only beat her.

    Mimics chests.

    It took a loooooong time for me to get near another chest after meeting my first mimic

    The "Create Similar Face" thing in the character creation with the slider set all the way to the right.

    On a more serious note: the Tower of Latria.

    You actually hit Maiden Astria?! I usually talk to her and let her. . . Well, no spoilers but yet.

    Also, the damn White Rats in the PW upset me. . . The sounds they make. D=

    Your post confused me, so I looked her up. I never knew you could do that.

    I learn something new every day.

    Also, I think I spelled her name wrong. The wiki claims it's "Astraea".
