Want to make Dark Souls even harder?

I'm currently recovering from a spinal problem and trying to get back into shape. Every time I die in Dark Souls I have to do a set of push ups or a set of curls. Mu Ha Ha. Prepare to DIE!

Everybody should do that!

And good luck with mending your broken body.

Actually...that's a pretty good idea.

Hmm. I like. How many per set should you do? 10? 15?

#5 Posted by KaramonD (53 posts) -

10 currently maybe by new game plus I'll up the difficulty

That's a really smart way to help yourself get fixed up, keep it going!

Training mental, physical and reflexes? Nice idea!

Prepare to DIE? More like prepare to Do Indefinite Enhancement.

Good luck on recovery too!

Great attitude to have, that. Could through in some chins too, if you're feeling brave!

Hmmm, if I did 10 push-ups for every time I died in Dark Souls each day.....that would equal around 10,000 push-ups/day.

On this new character that I've been playing, I've only died about 13 times in 20 hours.

Sooooo...13 sit-ups or push-ups? That's kind of useless.

That's actually not a bad idea. Kind of like a drinking game, but healthier.

@jakob187: more like 130. 10 sit ups/press ups per death. GET TO IT.

Awesome idea for most games, try to do that in an fps :0
Too bad I don't own dark souls anymore.

The funny part is that the physical strain from the push-ups and stuff will probably only make you die more often.

In all seriousness though, good luck with all that. Injuries are bad, after all.

I actually did this very thing with the Rianbow Six Vegas 2 Terrorist hunt on Realistic. Every time I died, I did a set of push ups or sit ups, then tried again. I got in shape quick.

I never did finish all the terrorist hunt missions.

only problem: getting jacked while during push ups, resulting in another set :(

#17 Posted by psylah (2153 posts) -

I did this, 25 push ups or 10 chin ups per death.

But, I was TOO GOOD at Dark Souls progression, so I started using this rule when I was spamming invasions.

I'll have to pick it back up after the winter is over.

Well that works I guess. I am making it harder on myself on this playthrough by only using weapons two-handed and restricting armor to a loincloth only. It's been fun so far!

That reminds me, I need to try the Kenshiro build.

That's an interesting way to do it. Right now I'm in week 3 of the Insanity Workout. I'm not sure I would want to interrupt comfortable game play with sets of anything other than drinking beer.
