I'm proud of you, son.

How many hours?

#3 Edited by CaLe (4312 posts) -

I dunno how people can play through games more than once. I just cannot do it. Well done though, you are the 1%.

#4 Posted by SuperWristBands (2281 posts) -

That's hawt. I could never do that.

#5 Posted by Sackmanjones (5216 posts) -

Damn, thats pretty awesome good job.

#6 Posted by MooseyMcMan (12011 posts) -

Good job!

#7 Posted by Tophat666 (253 posts) -

199 Hours: 40 Mins: 22 Sec, minus about 20 mins from that & it might be when I actually the last point.

Level 167, heavy armor character, did everything with one character.

#8 Posted by Chop (2010 posts) -


I did that months ago. I'm better than you. You suck.

Anyways, good job.

That is some serious dedication to Dark Souls. Grats, must not of been easy. Which achievement did you find most difficult?

Excellent work! While working on S-Typing that game, I made the mistake of erasing my character when trying to effectively take advantage of Microsoft's cloud services. Although, I didn't really mind the loss of those 100 hours because of how fun the game actually is and how much faster I got to the same point once I knew how to run around the game world properly. Honestly though, excellent work. By the third time, Smough and Ornstein are totally overrated, amirite?

Now S-Rank Devil May Cry HD collection.

I just S-ranked my girlfriend...

#13 Posted by NegativeCero (3090 posts) -

Cool. I'm happy to know that it's possible with one character if I ever go for it.

You've only S ranked it until they release the PC stuff as DLC for consoles.

That hasn't been confirmed or even hinted at by the developers. I wish it was true, but I'm not expecting much. I would love to kick Artorias' ass.

As for the S-rank, good job! I hope to accomplish the same by the end of the year...if awesome games would stop coming out left and right for me to continually play.

... Damn. Now I feel even worse for being so horribly stuck so early in the game. :P

#18 Posted by benspyda (2123 posts) -

I started another build on the weekend and destroyed that game up until Sens Fortress, the point that always crushes my spirits when I get to the very top and get knocked off by those swinging blades. When you know the world layout and enemy patterns the game isn't very hard at all.

Good work to you sir. I'm too lazy to try and get an S-rank, a couple tedious achievements in there I cbf doing. Also I find it hard to care about chevo points anymore. The last game I S ranked was Skyrim because I spent so many hours playing the game the s rank was just a neat side affect.

I would say all the rare weapons was just for the fact it was the very last one I got.

You have to get all the souls weapons(some bosses have more then one weapon), then all the tail weapons(Seath the Scaleless is the hardest), & all the rare drop weapons.

#20 Posted by Ghost249 (259 posts) -

@Tophat666: Congrats, You joined the others that have completed that great game! (I'm on the PS3, S-ranked that game a while ago)

@mosespippy: I'm going to have to agree with jakob187 on the DLC part since, they have not hinted anything at all regarding that.

I plan on getting this game on PC anyway so (I hope it goes through STEAM) more awesomesauce. <(^^)7

Does this game have achievements that require you to go online? I'm kinda interested in getting it but the idea of being locked out of achievements because they might eventually take the server offline like Demon's Souls might drive me away.

#24 Posted by avidwriter (670 posts) -

*Some variation of "cool story bro" here*

#25 Posted by Breadfan (6803 posts) -

@ShadowConqueror: I don't think so. Most of them are for beating bosses, story beats, and creating certain types of weapons.

#26 Posted by me3639 (2006 posts) -

Now that's impressive and btw you are f%^king crazy!!

#28 Posted by DoctorWelch (2817 posts) -

You sir, are an inspiration to us all.

#29 Posted by VanderSEXXX (570 posts) -

WOW!!! :O just making all those weapons is one of the impossible feats for me given the limited time I got for recreation these days. :o

#31 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3349 posts) -

@Breadfan: All right, thanks. I looked up the achievements but without having played the game they weren't especially helpful.

#32 Posted by mowcrosoft (64 posts) -

haha yeah I feel ya, I haven't even reached the second bell tower; and I bought the game on launch day!

I've been working on just that. Almost done with both DMC 1 and DMC 2.

#34 Posted by CptBedlam (4485 posts) -

@Tophat666: Congrats ... now do a lvl 1 playthrough. :P

#35 Posted by JackSukeru (6145 posts) -

I got everything except for the one for killing Priscilla and getting all the rare weapons (which is the really though one). By the time I started cleaning out achievements I had almost finished the game with 5 different characters so I wasn't really up for playing any more of it.

@ShadowConqueror: There are some achievements that require you to level up in Covenants (things you join that give you certain benefits and rewards) to get certain items, and to level up you need items that are usually obtained through co-op or PvP when participating in those covenants, however all these items can be obtained in other ways without going online.

Some examples: Eye of Death to level up the Gravelord Covenant can be farmed from Basilisks, pretty good drop rate too. Souvenir of Reprisal for Darkmoon Blade can be farmed from Harpies with a low droprate. Sunlight Medals for Warrior of Sunlight are probably the hardest to come by, they can be looted in a few places, traded for, once, and obtained if you summon the NPC Solaire to assist you in bossfights and he survives to the end.

Either way it's all very possible, with a guide, if very time consuming.

#36 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3349 posts) -

@RockmanBionics: As long as it's possible to do everything offline that's fine with me. If I were to get the game I'd probably just go the online route, but it's good to know I wouldn't be locked out of achievements providing some unfortunate incident renders me incapable of completing them before the servers are taken offline (assuming that will even happen).

I rented this for the PS3 on launch week. Couldn't find the first shield and gave up. Good job on getting much further than I.

#38 Posted by Kandycane2029 (517 posts) -

Congrats, man. I envy you.

Wat ... did you even try? The shield is the big blinking thing on the left right after the message on the ground.

#40 Posted by Draugen (788 posts) -

I am standing up and slow-clapping you right now, sir. Well done.

Welcome to the club, brother.

#42 Posted by mosespippy (4746 posts) -

@Ghost249: @jakob187: I thought I heard somewhere (Weekend Confirmed maybe?) that the amount of work done on the extra content would have cost From Software so much to make that not releasing it on console would result in a loss. Also, they wouldn't talk about putting PC content on consoles until after the PC release. They would hurt PC sales if they did.

#43 Edited by Canteu (2890 posts) -


Step up yo game son. This was pre patch too, when it was actually hard :(

#44 Posted by TrashMustache (561 posts) -

@Tophat666: yeah yeah, start playing the witcher 2 already, 45G? pathetic, you wasted your time on S ranking a shitty game like Dark Souls when you could have been playing witcher 2? Besides what the fuck, play witcher 2 on PC. LOL I'M KIDDING man, never played the souls' games, heard it's insane, congratulations! :)

#45 Posted by Robot_Sneakers (418 posts) -

That's impressive, great job. I'm going to try S-ranking it myself this summer, but I don't know if it's in me.

#46 Posted by mosespippy (4746 posts) -

@ShadowConqueror: Dark Souls' network code is designed to be peer to peer, not server based like Demon's Souls. So as long as you can sign into PSN or XBox Live you'll be able to play online, assuming there are still other people to play with in your level range.

#48 Posted by Ravenlight (8057 posts) -

So you've S-ranked Dark Souls but only have 45 points in The Witcher 2? Restart that shit on Insanity.

#49 Edited by NTM (8472 posts) -

Battletoads would be proud of you. Maybe not.

#50 Posted by o5ris (24 posts) -
