Everybody knows that your first time playing Demon�s Souls is tough. If you you are like me and have an undying commitment to un-funny jokes, you spent all your time harvesting all the sticky white stuff in the game and didn�t spend enough time increasing your endurance or strength for the climax of an archstone�s world, so all you had was a leather shield and wizard's clothes against the flamelurker. Luckily, soul arrows were put in the game for losers like me.
However, in my bumbling and stumbling through the land of Boletaria, I came across a profound moment I'd like to share with the three readers of this blog. If you haven't already clicked the link to get back to the blog roll, get ready for some super-deep*
reflection on one of the villains of this great game (which I recently beat).
This isn�t my game. I got the picture from vMoonSTERv on youtube, dawg
At that point I felt quite terrible for doing what I did, and realized how great it was. It reminded me of playing Shadow of the Colossus
, even though Demon�s Souls
fight was less morally ambiguous. I think that proves that the design behind the entire sequence is even better, since it got me to see what the developer�s may have intended me to see, without having to have me fill in ambiguous blanks with my personal preferences like SotC
did. The entire �boss fight� is a testament to the level of detail From Software put into the design in this game. I can only hope that Dark Souls
can deliver as great as an experience as the whole of Demon�s Souls
Now this is where I ask if others saw what I saw. Is this deep* enough
for you, or am I just dumb? As a man of science, be they social or natural, I have low confidence in my ability to analyze anything plot related. When I finished playing the final part of the Valley of Defilement, I knew I
really liked it, but I wondered if it�s just because of my mental deficiency or something. I�d really like to hear others� thoughts on the fight or the Valley, or if they had a boss battle that they thought was even better experience! It doesn�t even have to be from Demon�s Souls
! Maybe writing this was a bad idea , but I just wanted to share my thoughts with the two of you who will read this! :D
