    Loving it, skare! My favorite part was all the soldiers talking about getting shot at with your arrows.silly 

    And the video isn't that bad. You can see everything.

    Thanks. My YouTube channel's signature look is "cell phone that may or may not be totally pointed at the TV." It's definitely important to establish these "stylistic choices" to set your channel apart big grin

    I love your descriptions of the Dragon God fight. It was a fight that never stood out for me much because it didn't feel like a "fight," but I didn't hate it. It was just kind of like Bed of Chaos without any of the frustration or emotions behind it. It was just kinda "there." But as much as you've read into it, it puts things in a new light and makes me appreciate the atmosphere more. As the one thread is titled, "Demon's Souls, the game that keeps on giving" indeed happy

    Yay! I made someone else think about that fight!!!

    I can probably get off my soapbox already winking

    Glad to get feedback of any kind actually. I don't think I would have gotten more than a few chapters without a little encouragement. In related news, Chapter 10's title got me thinking and since, from the "edit post" option, it's just cut and paste....


    I did paste the work so far into a Word document and was a little shocked. Especially since, apart from paragraph breaks it's all single spaced. Anyone care to guess? I would have been way off.

    I was thinking...:
    It would be around 15 pages total.

    but in reality:
    The last few sentences of the interlude kicked off page 32. I'm considering sending it to From now.

    No, no, no. Finish the playthrough and then publish it as a novelized let's play big grin

    Though maybe you'd still need permission from FROM to do so. I dunno how that would work what with it might be taken as using their game for profit.

    Old Hero is actually really fun -- and dangerous -- if you get him all riled up.  Not exactly news, but still a cool way for the player to control their own experience and handle that boss fight however you want to play it.  It's kinda like if super Ornstein had an off switch or narcolepsy.

    Someone head over to the PC section and convince them of creating Narcoleptic Super Ornstein!

    Chapter 11 is done.

    I had a crazy weekend. I started getting sick Friday. I went to a football game anyway that night. Saturday I had a graduation party that took a good chunk of the day and yesterday was sick and busy. I still managed to play some last night since sleep didn't seem like a great idea.

    Chapter 13 is.........




    not up. But it will be. Gonna go get some work done and try to have it up around lunch time (3-4 hours from now).

    For those of you who like teasers:

    Get ready to gasp in excitement as I regale you with tales of my victories over the Spy vs. Spy characters from Mad Magazine!

    Hold onto the edge of your seat while you read my filthy, dirty exploits in the smut filled Valley of "Defilement"

    Be prepared to already know the logical outcome of my confrontation with Astraea!

    I added an interlude with what is hopefully some good satire and a gameplan for game's end.

    On a sidenote I'm going for a record with my posts in a row!

    Trying to work on my consecutive post count I guess....

    The latest section just welcomed a portrait of my current gear with this character's final nickname. In Dark Souls I ended up with Farmer Tarkus (thanks Eki).

    It's either a stylistic choice or a complete lack of ambition to fiddle with my cell camera settings to get anything decent.

    So I am planning on actually finishing this. Should be soon. It's been a crazy week or so for me. That might continue as well...

    But I will Kill The King

    Why haven't I been here yet?

    I've just got done reading chapter 1, really looking forward to reading the rest of this Skare.
