    skarekrow13 wrote:You missed something even more interesting on the sword but that's most of the stuff I was referring to. The cloth seems to have been damaged from the left mostly just like you said. However, I saw it as frayed from age, pretty much universally on each side, but the left is discolored. So since I don't like keeping secrets too long.......

    Spoiler:
    The part of the handguard facing up appears to be broken. I didn't really look for proof of this in other pictures since I confirmed what I want to point out in at least two pictures. The edge of the blade on that side is corroded. Battle damage typically leaves knicks that look like little "v" indentations while hitting a shield or armor might cause larger flat areas on the blade. But nothing like that. There's a large part of the edge that was destroyed in a very unusual way. So here's my thoughts on what all of this means. We know from the original game equipment he had a really sweet shield too. We see in the new stuff he doesn't seem to mind using his sword one handed. He likely used them in tandem would be my guess. So whatever he fought did three things as far as I can tell. When Artorias tried to hurt it, it messed up his sword really bad. When he tried to block it, his shield wasn't enough. Judging by the damaged areas, whatever hit him was mostly stopped. His arm says that it got a little past his shield. Not much but enough to cause a lifelong problem for him. The discoloration of the cloth could be further evidence that whatever got him was mostly canceled by the shield. The third thing which adds to the corrosive/contamination idea is the gunk he leaves on the ground that we see in the picture and video of the fight with him. It doesn't look like it's meant to be walked over.......

    Hey guys. I'd like to jump into your discussion and ideas.

    Let me spoiler this straight away...

    Spoiler:
    I believe that Artorias faced the darklurker and lost the fight. The stuff on his sword looks a lot like the flesh of the arm that drags you into the new content. I believe that he in fact managed to wound the demon (maybe that's why he crawls and isn't standing?) and tear off some flesh or whatever this thing consists of. Here is the point I'd like to borrow your idea of him being hurt and ultimately defeated by the enemy (you didn't say, who the enemy was). I too believe that he was hit by the dark magic and couldn't defend against it. In my little Spoiler thread in the PC discussion forum I already noted that I believe the Darklurker to wield a giant version of the Beatrice's catalyst. So that might turn out to be not that far from reality... I'm really, really excited for the new content! With Lord's Blade Ciaran confirmed, this is the ultimate souls experience and will fill in so many lore gaps.

    FROM me with love! :heart:

    Edit: I have one more idea, that I forgot to mention earlier on. I believe that you can only access the new content after you acquired Artorias ring, i.e. beat Sif. If that is true and Artorias really fought the darklurker, then maybe it mistakes you for Artorias and that's why he drags you into the abyss in the first place. OR he wants to meet the being that is stronger than Artorias. I also believe the demon wants you to find out certain things. Like on that one picture with the floating humanity sprites. I think that is actually a scene that you might find and after you saw it, the Darklurker pulls you deeper into the darkness. In the trailer, the character seems to be dragged around IN the abyss (already). Not only into it but in it as well. Please let me know what you think about that.

    Oh by the way. My most crazy theory of them all: The darklurker IS the pygmy and the last boss.

    By the way I really liked you analysis of the probable Lordblade Ciaran and her daggers, why they'd fit the hornet ring-style and everything. I would also love to see the smaller blade with the barbs to inflict a poison or toxin status (like: Oh, I didn't kill you with my OP-as-****-backstab? May you die from the intoxication sucka! twisted

    THAT would be really really nice! lol!

    Whats unique about dark souls pvp is its unpredictability, for better or worse. Im getting the notion that rather than building on top of that awesome original idea of pvp that they are taking the easy way out with this pvp matchmaking system. With its growing popularity the soul series i worry will get watered down by shareholders pushing for easier accessibility to non-hardcore gaming customers and of course to their money. If this is the case, that would be a bummer to say the least , but business is business.

    I agree sir. I get pumped up when invading/being invaded because I have no idea what's coming or was caught completely unprepared. Taking this away will kill much of the Souls game's appeal to me.

    I just wish instead of match making they worked on better balance and better implementation of included mechanics. I'm sad

    We on the consoles might want to be more appreciative of what time we have before the dlc comes in instead of not being able to wait to get it. It may be the last moment of innocence, enjoy it, i say. Of course i coukd be worried about nothing... i hope so!

    They need to leave invasions alone. But the white summon signs need a demon souls makeover, summoning there was a breeze. Whatever they did different they should change. But the idea that invading, i could invade a lvl700 as a lvl 1. Thats all good and fine. Risks/reward ratio. I can't wait to get this dlc regardless though.

    That's more of an acceptable release. I wish it was way sooner, but I can deal with that since from now it's only a little over a month...Wait no two, since its late october.

    It makes me sad that namco has catered to a pc port which is a horrible excuse for a port itself rather than prioritising console versions of dark souls they prioritised somethinng they had no experience with the pc deserves a better port.

    I think they shouldn't have prioritized one over the other. But I do sort of see the idea, they are new to the PC so they really wanted to make sure they didn't *** up the PC version and disappoint people there. I just think they should have released both at the same time, and pushed back the PC release.

    I believe they're still figuring out how to manage compatibility between people who have the DLC and people who don't. There's a lot of big things to take into consideration with that.

    Not only that, but it's clear that they're planning on releasing a GOTY edition on consoles and bundling the DLC with it, and October is a much better time for that.

    Third point, making it a temporary PC exclusive has essentially doubled their sales, because now all the hardcore fans are buying it on PC and then later again on consoles. They basically figured out how to sucker a bunch of people into buying the same game twice, which is pretty smart.

    You say smart, i say greedy. Even if they do release a GOTY edition theres no way i would pay for it, honestly the DLC should be 10$. You can't call something new content when its been out for 4months. I love this game, and want to support them so they make more souls games. However i will not support them if this is the way they will be conducting business.

    Greed is smart is the thing.

    But there's also stupid greed. It's keeping the smart greed constant and the stupid greed out that makes companies stay on top.

    DLC is digital , meaning there is no guarantee that I can still play it 5 or 10 years ahead for nostalgia.

    Digital downloads suck , when HDD dies and the current PS3/ Xbox360 server isn't online anymore in the future ...

    your file is gone ,

    that won't happen with full/goty editions
