    Brainstorming ideas for future Dark Souls commentaries

    Post by martyrsbrigade99 on Sun May 27, 2012 11:05 am

    Hello all,

    Currently, I am a Dark Souls commentator on YouTube. I'm looking for fresh ideas for future commentaries. If there is anything concerning Dark Souls that someone would like to get information about, please offer your suggestions. I would like to keep my commentaries both fresh and alive, while addressing topics relative to Dark Souls. Thanks, I'm looking forward to your feedback.

    I know you like doing the PvP stuff, but I really like hearing about the lore. Stuff like is the Darkroot Garden/Basin area the lost land of Oolacile is something that really interests me.

    So just find something about the story that appeals to you and dig deeper into it, I believe it'd be fun to watch.

    Seeing as you prefer PvP things, I think you should stick to that, but perhaps do a commentary on the lack of variety in PvP and what could be done to improve it?

    Give examples of how to break the mould so to speak, comment on the "usual suspects" and "Min/maxer" equipment that you see a lot and different builds and equipment that could freshen up the whole PvP scene for everyone.

    I'm sure everyone would be interested in something that aims to be so different.

    I would tell you ideas for the future comms that I will plan on doing - but I can't give away the secrets can I winking Haha but I honestly don't mind - perhaps freshen it up with discussing some real life matters? Do some series so the audience gets to know you a bit better, if that doesn't feel right for you then possibly say about what fromsoft could do in the next souls game, I see that you have your making a build series. That is pretty interesting, hmm aye but I would like to hear a bit more about your life, it will build a kinda connection between you and your subscribers.

    I personally would like to see more PVP vids like the old ones. The honor dudes series was my fav of all. Though most controversial especially here it was the best.

    As for something new id agree with serious much on his idea.

    Perhaps an important / interesting things in each zone series? I have not seen a comprehensive video guide of such things and it seems to me like that could work well.

    ^^ Along the lines of that, how about a Forest PvP series? Cover hosting, invading, and white phantoms.

    Forest PvP videos are a bit too common, if I could record I would make those but really there are far too many of them at the moment, but if you do that sort of PvP often enough it's still entertaining just a bit common.

    You could maybe do a silly video. Like seeing how far you can go running in a mad dash, no gear from one side of the world to the other. No heals, no attacking or defending yourself just dodging. The Running Man you could title it. Though I might suggest doing this with the bosses already dead.

    Forest videos are common, but I've never seen one with commentary. Videos designed to show different strategies (not just describe what's going on). For example, you want to demonstrate a certain technique. You invade only using that technique, or setups to do that technique (and not just describe it during a fight).

    I don't know if that makes any sense at all. If there are any videos that have commentary like that, I'd love to watch them.

    Haha Reim that was something I've actually made using a camera, but I can't put it onto my computer sadly.

    If you do decide on a forest video you can check with me or the Glory of Alvina people, it is our homeland and we know it more than anyone else on the forum.

    How about a series on advanced PvP tactics. Parries (going over timings for all weapon types, setups, partials, second R1, etc), counter BS, dead angles, Leo counters, etc?

    I'd like to see some instructional videos of the strength based weapons. Everyone knows how to mash r1 with zweihander but it doesn't work against better players. It could include some tips about using dead angles which is probably one of the pros of str weapons.

    I think strength weapons are hard to use since they're so easy to punish so it would be nice to hear some tips about them happy

    Too bad that I deleted about 42 videos. All of my Darkroot oriented vids covered commentary explaining a range of topics that included, defining backstab fishing, avoiding being "one-shotted" and a host of other topics. I'll keep that in mind the next time I'm in Darkroot.

    Darkwraith. Very rarely do I join the Blades of the Darkmoon. I was thinking about becoming a gravelord servant, but the wait seems kind of too long. I like a lot of action, similar to Darkroot.

    Maybe read forumpirates thread on "the gear and why it is." Really interesting thread.

    A pvp vid explaining good use of movesets! I love when a guy with a BKGA keeps swinging at air because I backstepped.

    Come to think of it yeah, I haven't really seen many videos detailing spells outside of videos just detailing general glitches. That would probably be very useful to many people.
