From the hours of Dark Souls streams, articles and general HYPE that's been surrounding this website lately, I decided to drop back in and finally brute force my way through the Capra Demon, so I could get back to "playing" it. And I'm having a good time again, finally! Although the one thing I've learned from this copious over-exposure of the inner-working of Dark Souls, is that this shit is basically nonsense, and they are basically just creating any old thing, their justifications balancing on the edge of a knife; lore on one side, insanity on the other.
To test this revelation, I decided to start making up stupid shit about the game. These rumours, while obviously fake, when placed in a Dark Souls context very nearly seem legitimate, to the extent that even veterans of the game questions their legitimacy:
So my new favourite thing to do online is making up random shit about Dark Souls in the hope that somebody, somewhere, hears about them and actually decides to give them a shot. Because even though they are obviously fake, the crazy thing about Dark Souls, and this is important, is that you can never be sure.
