    Connect Dark Souls, to other gaming Universes.

    Post by Soul of Stray Demon on Thu Sep 26, 2013 10:33 pm

    I know this is barely lore-related, but it may take some digging to find a connection. 



    After watching this video, I was wondering if we can get Dark Souls into this somehow.

    What can we connect it to? Can we get it to Mario? Or Tetris?

    Maybe even PONG?

    The castle in Ico reminds me of Boletaria and Sen's

    Did you watch the video... if you did, you should have an idea what I mean by connections. 

    Is there any other games that have featured something from the souls series?

    Nowadays many games are looking to Souls for inspiration/design ideas.

    Take a look at something like ZombiU, when you are killed by a zombie in the game you die and lose all your inventory and your previous self (now itself an enemy zombie) remains stocked with your inventory and your new life must seek out said zombie in order to recover your inventory.

    Sounds a lot like having to go back for your souls in DkS/DeS, no?

    I mean characters or enemys or whatever... 

    Watch the video before posting, so you will understand the kind of connections I mean.

    Saw it.

    Ok, it's hard to think of one (I'm guessing you don't want to hear about the Borderlands 2 Easter Eggs) but one that I found, that may or may not be real was in Sribblenauts Unlimited where you can actually get titanite for yourself and it looks like Green titanite and counts as precious mineral.

    Now I know titanite is real but it strikes me as odd that they would have it in over more common descriptors like gemstones or crystals.

    It's not an actual connection, but in the newest World of Warcraft patch they added a sign you can place down and write pre-chosen messages on (which even resemble those of the soapstone) and an item you can use that makes you hostile to both factions and makes you a red phantom.

    Ohh, so we got a connection to world of warcraft now..


    So let's see, there's Borderlands 2, there's World of Warcraft, and there's possibly Scribblenauts.

    I don't know if you guys saw this too but this game called Demon Souls shares a few connections with Dark Souls

    Wading in late on this : Seath, Kalameet and the Moonlight Greatsword are all references from the King's Field series.
