    Hello Dark Souls community

    Post by Anarchist26 on Sun Jun 23, 2013 3:20 pm

    Hello everyone!

    I'm Jon, a 22 year old engineer in an electronics company. I play basketball, bass guitar and video games.

    Right now the Souls series is my favorite of all the games I've played.

    This is the most solid Souls community I've seen after looking around.

    Hope to meet you in pvp and co-op!

    Cheers!

    Hello my fellow Demon souls/Dark souls addicts. My name is Brandon, hopefully you caught on to that, as it is evident by my username! 

    A little about me, I am 18, I work at a retail company, and I am pursuing the career field of Political Science in the fall.

    Originally I had a PS3, so my first game with the souls series is of course, Demon souls!. Due to some circumstances though, I traded in my PS3 and I am now enjoying Dark Souls on the 360. I am excited to be apart of this community, as it seems the most flourished from what I have seen. I hope to see some of you in game, have fun fellow adventures!

    Edit: I actually lost my original copy of Dark souls, so earlier today I got a new copy. Now I made a new character, and I am exploring the Undead Burg.

    Greetings,  I am an old school gamer (started back before there were consoles and computers ran over the phone lines).  I have been playing DS since the start (my kid got me started when he picked it up for me),  but I have only started to really get back into it when I found this site.  Of course I have issues trying to decide what style I want to play, so I have started over repeatedly.  Lot of good info on here.  Almost forgot I am on the xbox.

    Oh look, another hollow for you to kill.

    Gah. introductions, how brilliant - these always go swimmingly with me; so excuse any... hiccups or social protocols I skip over in this introduction. Another thing; my spelling is terrible, its due to a head injury I sustained whilst I was younger, I have a minor case of dyslexia.

    Alright well, now that that's out of the way; I'm a Dark souls fan (who would have guessed) I guess I'll cover why I like this game so much first. I'm going to be frank; the first thing that drawed me to Dark souls was the art style; as a kid I grew up reading lord of the rings, and the surreal, high-fantasy eldritch style of the game gave it a massive draw to me personally.

    The second thing that attracted me was the difficulty; I've always been competitive, but I was never a person for online gaming, but being able to compete AGAINST the game sounded like an angel singing from heaven. I had always been a fan of dungeon crawler games, although I enjoyed oblivion whenever it came out, it always felt too easy and never had any risk to it.

    Another thing that grabbed me was the story; I had always been fed my games story via a narrow straw; but the idea of leaving the story to the gamer is such a thing of genius! ... mad genius. Such as believing who is the first born, was Lord Gwyn REALLY a bad guy, etc etc.

    The final thing; " Prepare to die! " I originally thought that was a threat; but I soon realized it was a piece of advice; the game taught me how to beat the bosses via repetition and actually taking my time to go onto the wiki and trying to do research, I can understand how some people would find that unappealing, I personally find it very rewarding.
    ___________________________

    Alright, onto the boring stuff. About me? I've never really gone by my own name, hell, at some points I forget it. Maybe I'm just another hollow? Eh, never really liked being uninsane anyway. Enough of that banter? Alright. Some information about me, eh?

    " If I didn't know any better, I'd say you had feelings for me...oh,dear...please forget I said that... "

    I'm irish, I'm part Russian, from my grandmothers side, I was born in dublin and raised there until I was about four, then I moved to glengormley. I spent most of my childhood playing games or taking my bikes and computers apart, I was never really interested in girls or blokes. I was a quiet kid, I spent alot of my time with my legs crossed in a corner thinking.

    Personally, I see myself as someone who, when is bent on something, will never stop, will never relent or will ever stop until that task is completed (hence why I like Dark souls so much)

    I spent about a year of my life in the armed forces, the marines, as a rifleman, I enjoyed it, like being a big part of a family, until I took an injury and was unable to serve anymore.

    I hope I'm a good part of the community.
    Have a good day, and remember;

    Your happiness is your own.

    Hello my fellow demon souls/dark souls brethren i go by the name ghostshade and started playing demon souls quite a while after it came out and finished my ng around the time dark souls was released. Since then i have tried to make a build i can stick to in dark souls but due to the fact that i suffer from a major case of restart syndrome i have started over from scratch around 10 times so far.

    Hopefully you can help me sort that out happy

    Well since this is a intro thread telling you all something about myself might be helpful winking

    I am a 30 year old swedish Helpdesk tech who likes to hang around with my friends, listen to music and of course play computer and console games in my spare time. I also practice martial arts even if i am suffering from plantar fasciitis at the moment and for that reason is limited in what training i can do.

    Hidiho to all forum members here and contributors for the great Wiki.
    My name is Martin or better known as Mental Gear and I'm still pretty new to this game, bought it for PC two weeks ago, finished it once and lost a lot of hair during the process, but I loved it every second. In real life I'm an optician but my true vocation has always been monster/zombie hunter.
    I have been playing games for over 20 years now, starting off on the C64.
    Strangely enough this games combat style reminds me of Kengo 2 just much more versatile, one or two wrong moves and you're dead. I think the combat system and the art style is what gripped me the most and the atmosphere is just insanely great in this game.
    My current character is the son of Oscar, a knight/faith/endurance build with some rp-restrictions to make it interesting. Today the sunbros accepted me as a new member happy
    Honestly, I wasn't as hooked to a game like I am for DaS since I first played Ocarina of time 15 years ago. Can't wait to get my hands on Demon's Souls and Dark Souls 2.
    Hope to be able to join you in some jolly co-op and maybe PvP once I grasp all the info provided by this community. Thanks for all the hard work and the plattform you're providing here.

    Hello,
    I wanted to introduce myself.I've been looking after some things on this wiki about Dark Souls for some time now and I thought a forum would be nice.

    I've started with DS about three weeks ago and I'm now in NG+ with my first char.He is lvl99 now and I've joined the Sunlight covenant now to be summoned more often for Co-op...and because I love Solaire and the whole "Praise the Suuuuuuun!" thing. happy
    (which is why I've saved him in my first playthrough)
    I'm now running almost all the time in human form and I've watched a lot of videos to get a better understanding about stats,weapons and so on,now doing more pvp as well.I'm probably still a noob to most veterans,but it's still fun if I'm not getting insta killed or spammed by the same attacks over and over again.

    I like to co-op with people and have duels in undead burg and so far I've been experiencing mostly nice and polite players which is a very nice experience to make in a game.I love how many players hold to the inoffcial rules of bowing to each other at the beginning of the fight,that some players let you kill monsters first if you were in the middle of a fight (of course some will exploit that),that if you are two against one that you almost always get a nice and fair 1v1 fight if the invader is polite too,and so on.

    Well,thats pretty much it for me and my DS career.I don't know much more to say but: "Praise the Suuuuuun!" happy

    Wow. LOTS of new faces.

    Welcome all of you, and keep in mind a lot of us will co-op, help, and duel if we have time. Its one of the best forum atmospheres out there.

    Glad to see so many new faces.

    Also, don't be afraid to post. Some of the conversations might seem intimidating at first, but 99% of the people here answer questions pretty respectfully....rare for a gaming community.

    C ya'll around.Bow

    Hey everybody, new fish here.
    With Dark Souls 2 coming up i thought it would be fun to make a account and follow up on the news.
    Been playing Dark Souls for 9 months now on 360, and after playing Demon's Souls on PS3, i Switched to PS3 with Dark Souls too.
    Until now i only did PvE, but i'm thinking of taking baby steps in to the PvP world... so if any of you run into me, please be gentle. 

    Mags.

    Well, I'm not sure how much attention this will net but why not - might as well follow social convent at least occasionally. I'm Aendron, I've been playing Dark Souls since the start but actually never engaged much in PvP for some or other reason until reason. I've been playing for a few months and I've been thoroughly enjoying myself so far.

    I'm playing on Xbox, so if anyone's up for some duels then shoot me a message - on the forum - and we'll set it up. Cheers.

    I've already posted in DkS2 and DeS topics and I finally stumbled here so why not.
    I'm a Demons Souls Vet, Intermediate Dark Souls player. Been playing since they came out, I seem to have to pop one of these games into my PS3 at least once a month.

    I'm a huge fan and theorist of both the lore's of these games as well as their gameplay.

    Good to finally join the Souls Community.

    Ola I'm extofogeese , known as extofogeese2 on PSN, have a few ideas in mind that might prove to be interesting topics, although there will be some wild speculation an generally odd theories. Really want to make some friends for pvp and maybe join one of the forums covenants. My pvp knowledge and skill are seriously lacking, this is something I want to change. Any advice on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated happy

    greetings! i've been playing dark souls for two months. (nub lol get rekt) I'm still on my first playthrough and have never engaged in PVP or even Jolly Coop. It looks fun from the videos I've seen, though. I've been invaded twice when I happened to be human, but both times they got themselves killed before I even saw them. 
    Shrug 
    Thus, I've soloed every boss so far except the Bell Gargs, but Solaire got himself stunlocked to death after the second one showed up. His noble sacrifice was not in vain...

    Hail fair travelers! My name's SOLAIRE OF ASTORA. At least that's what my name would be, if i could be so impossibly awesome. My real name is Garth, in all its fantasticosity?

    Surprise, i love dark souls. I've only been playing for a few weeks but have five characters now, even though they're all only about 50 sl or so and haven't really gotten too far in. Only one has beaten seath. Anyway, i'm fifteen and dark souls is my favorite game in the whole wide world. Truly a unique experience, and what i'd consider my most valuable purchase on steam. So i thought, hey, i love dark souls. Other people love dark souls. Time to meet those people!

    And now i'm here. Hopefully i'll find some way to contribute to the community, that would be fantastic. anyway, it's very late and i've rambled out an introduction long enough. See you around!
    Praise the Sun
