Ahhhh...the obligatory speed runs. meh

#5 Edited by Swoxx (2988 posts) -

Speed runs is the greatest invention since sliced content.

Also, this is what I call an endurance run.

I'm 40 hours in, I just got to Anor Londo, fuck this dude.

A couple of videos. This is absolutely amazing from what I've watched thus far.

Someone also ran Demon souls. All they did was roll around dodging everyone.

He beat the Gargoyle in 30s. Didn't even bother to light any bonfires along the way....

I... feel inferior.

Both bells rang within 15 minutes or something. Took me 20 hours to do that shit. >_>

Uh ok? It's quite legit.

Their whole country could probably take turns beating this game before 5 of us could do it.

#13 Posted by White (1302 posts) -

He fought Quelaag and beat her at like level 2. With no shield. In rags.

And while he's poisoned...

#14 Posted by punpun (232 posts) -

Saw this yesterday on NND. My mouth hit the floor when he cut the dragon's tail off. I had no idea you could do that with a melee weapon. I always just ran the fuck away whenever it landed on the bridge.

Crazy motherfucker has gotten as far as me in 20 minutes, it has taken me 20 hours.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this game is not hard. Still, this is impressive.

I semi hate statements like this. This game is definitely harder then the average game. To act like it's not is pure ignorance.

Ornstein and Smough were ragdolls... Holy shit

I'd argue it actually IS hard. If not, what are actual hard games for you then in comparison?

Memorizing unforgiving patterns, accumulating necessary skills by playing a lot and the continuous demand to concentrate at all times are factors that make games hard. And Dark Souls combines all of these.

#20 Posted by CptChiken (1987 posts) -

Thats fucking insane... and also pretty depressing that he got as far in 10 minutes as it took me in like 15 hours.

I believe this is the world record for that, but there may be some crazy japanese person out there who has halved this time or something. Although, 1 hour flat sounds hard to beat.
#22 Posted by bkbroiler (1604 posts) -

I love speed runs.

It is funny to see him get to the gargoyles in 10 minutes in what took me about 10 hours. But for people getting depressed over that, remember that if you replayed the game to that point you'd probably cut your time down to an hour or two. Chin up!

I don't consider doing any of that stuff hard. All I know is I bought the game and 2-3 days later I completed it. Nothing about it was 'hard'. Games I would consider hard? Professor Layton.
I swear to God I have seen this exact post before. Someone, maybe it was you, said Demon's Souls was easy and that Professor Layton was hard. It pretty much started a flame war if I recall correctly.
#26 Posted by bybeach (4701 posts) -

Somebody spammed the game. Yeah, the individual is an extremly good video gamer, more than I could even begin to be. Yet it doesn't get my respect. I put it into a category very simular to idiot savant. The moves are there....

I strongly disagree. You know that your posts come across annoying attempts at bragging btw, right? Yeah, you beat this long ass game in 2-3 days and it was sooo incredibly easy while thousands of other gamers out there give up on it in frustration and despair.... you're so awesome! ... SO awesome!

I love hard games like Ninja Gaiden Black etc. But I'm not a yerk and tell other people that these games are easy just because I was able to beat them.

Just like it's annoying for you to see me say that I find it annoying when so many people say it's hard when it's not. I'm not bragging and wish more people would play the damn thing instead of being put off by everyone saying it's hard.

It doesn't matter if you personally exclude certain aspects from the difficulty - these aspects are what made games hard back 20-30 years ago and they still do. Get your head out of your pro-gamer ass and stop being a yerk.

I love hard games btw but I know that lots of my friends won't be able to complete this game so I don't recommend it to them.

If you have problems with Professor Layton I seriously doubt this statement.

I get the feeling I can find someone that would bitch you out for thinking Layton is hard and all the puzzles actually being meant for grade schoolers.  You find those puzzels hard?  Fine.  Others find the required reflexes and timings for Dark Souls hard.  Your own affinities do not disqualify them as illegitimate..

He uses a fucking titanite demon to kill the blacksmith for the seal and humanity. And he's equipping stuff in the menu while still running. This man is a legend.

If it's hard for most people it's probably fucking hard for those people. Difficulty is subjective, just because you don't find it hard doesn't mean that it isn't for most other people. A lot of people are way good at Professor Layton and you still call that game hard.

@Jack268: I don't have trouble with Layton and never said I did. I said that's the type of game I would consider hard, because it requires at least some thought to progress through the story. This game requires no thought, just reflexes, pattern recognition and being careful, none of which is 'hard'.

Since when is pattern recognition and the act of being careful not thought? Difficulty isn't an absolute anyway. To the average gamer who plays the typical games on the market today, this game is hard. Personally I don't think it's that hard myself, but I'm not about to start trying to prove that it's easy just because of my experience.

Reflexes for many people is hard.  Puzzle solving via pattern recognition and some trial and error in Layton?  Not nearly as hard for me.

It is hard because the game is unforgiving in the requirements it puts upon the player. Not like 99% of the games out there in which a few wrong steps or moves don't hurt your progress through the game at all...

Now as I said: stop being a yerk. This game is hard, period. Difficulty does not equal puzzle solving exclusively.

Eh, I haven't played Dark Souls yet, but I didn't really find Demon's Souls that hard. I can see how it would be hard for others, but I didn't find it that hard. World 5 is just ridiculously easy.

#43 Posted by Wacomole (815 posts) -

So this will be the incentive From Software needed to make the next game ACTUALLY impossible.

Since when is pattern recognition and the act of being careful not thought? Difficulty is relative anyway. To the average gamer who plays the typical games on the market today, this game is hard. Personally I don't think it's that hard myself, but I'm not about to start trying to prove that it's easy just because of my experience.

But it is easy.

For you, it's easy for you. What's easy for you may not be easy for most people. Why don't you understand this? Are you really just doing this to make people annoyed.

#46 Posted by Hamz (6846 posts) -

This is not a discussion about whether Dark Souls is difficult or not in comparison to Professor Layton. This is a discussion to praise a, quite frankly, amazing speed run through a game.

#47 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (5043 posts) -

@CL60: But to say that everyone else is wrong about the difficulty is something else. Like what Cale was saying.

Look, let me put it this way.  The fact that everything that is being said by you is coming from someone that scored in the top 5 for every single map during the Trackmania TNT means that no.  You are the 5% with very good reflexes and timing.  The rest of us are not.  So back the fuck off.
