Will Smith making hot Banjo-Kazooie references.

Posted by Noblenerf

Really entertaining video.

Skylanders... is a beautiful thing.

Edited by Dasdude

Oh my god, Jeffs voice at the end... holy shit that is great.

Edited by whatisdelicious

Holy shit Will and Patrick were so goddamn annoying in this.

Will micromanaging every single action (with a lot of wrong information) down to "now take your shield down, now put it up, now take it down, go left, go right" was super annoying, as was Patrick's condescending attitude about how Ryan was getting "grumpy" (of course he was grumpy--he had three people yelling at him while he's trying to learn the game) and talking about Ryan in the third-person like he's not even there or he's a child or something. Just let him play. He looked so annoyed.

I wish it wasn't too late to have a Vinny and Ryan playthrough. Vinny will give too much advice sometimes here but at least he knows when Ryan's just having fun and can laugh along with him. I miss Ryan's laugh. Fuck.

A foreboding first look at the HurdyGurdy man at the end there.

Chilling.

Ryan playing Dark Souls? Subscription immediately worth it.

Posted by Renegade1973

Its my 5th playthrough. Such a great game. I NEED Dark Souls 2.

I've been playing Dark Souls for so long, it's my favorite game of 2012.

I'm really disappointed at how much misinformation and condemnation of Dark Souls they spread throughout this video. They just use it as a punching bag for their lame jokes. You guys do so much better usually.

Although, I'm too much of a fanboy for the game and I dunno what I was expecting to get rewatching this feature.

Good to see Ryan playing Dark Souls but it should be pointed out that the same complaint I've heard from the guys on this and on the podcasts is that they don't get all the humanity and kindling stuff, and that it isn't explained. This isn't true: the basic concepts of the game (humanity, living and undead, bonfires) are explained in a couple of short paragraphs in the manual, so I feel like that complaint isn't a valid one.

I should come back to this game. It's still the best I've played this year.

Sold me on Dark Souls.

Bursting with win? Really?

Man. I think... I think I need to get a PS3.

And then Dark Souls.

I really loved this! Maybe stream more Dark Souls Ryan

Edited by Kosayn

Ryan was pretty cool under fire fighting that Taurus Demon. Despite all the coaching in the videos, I think he's got some skills. I was glad to see him get somewhere rather than getting stuck and frustrated. That can be fun to watch too, but it's a different kind of fun.

It's true, you don't really understand what the game is till you die on a boss 4 or 5 times, and you either start memorizing the whole fight, or you bust out weirder and weirder equipment, or you give up and go to try and find a faster weapon, a bigger shield, lighter armor, a stronger spell.

It's Castlevania OR Metroidvania, your choice. That's the beauty of it, considering nobody else is making either of those kind of games anymore.

Watching Ryan play Dark Souls while being continually fed bad advice/information is not as much fun as I would have thought.

Edited by Jonnyflash80

This was an awesome show. Seeing Ryan play Dark Souls was great. He did way better than me on my first time through the Undead Burg. My heart was beating faster just watching him fight the Taurus Demon.

Again, great show guys!

Dude what, Melissa is leaving?

ahh look at all those smilingu faeces, thats the gianto bomb i've come to know and love

Posted by MachoFantastico

Would love to see them continue a Dark Souls run, but I know they probably won't.

Posted by Zenthere

I've seen enough of Dark Souls to know I would hate it and myself after the first couple hours. Thanks for saving me the blood pressure medication.

Posted by Katkillad

Usually when i see comments about videos/news posts where people keep correcting specifics that are being said, I usually think, "Stop being a jerk"... but holy hell, there was a lot of misinformation in this video! Where was Kessler? Wasn't he supposed to be the dark souls giantbomb authority?

I will not stand for that Tupac slander Jeff and Ryan, you have gone too far sirs! Too FAR!

Posted by 1p

I wouldn't mind having the Japanese TV style picture-in-picture for quick looks as well.

Posted by artofwar420

I enjoyed that Dark Souls run A LOT.

You can chalk me up as another person who subscribed, after years of coming to this site, just to see this video. Well done Ryan!

Keep seeing Dark Souls, keeps making me want to play it. Must stay strong!

Posted by MediumDave

Man. I would play this game if had a Couch Crew with me. I just don't have the time nor inclination to beat my head against a wall and replay sections in video games anymore.

Posted by kist

Great show, love it when you guys do things like this. Impressed Ryan actually played Dark Souls given how much he hated the idea of the game before. Also great touch on Jeff's voice at the end- really suited him

Posted by nick_verissimo

I loved how Vinny was cringing during that entire Taurus demon battle and Ryan could almost care less.

Ryan, read the strategy guide if you ever do play it again.

What a boring ass way to go through a game.

Whatever you do, Ryan... but if you keep playing DS, don't take this advice! Don't read a strategy guide for progression purposes. Just for stat explanation, crafting and things like that.

So many people think they are really playing this game when they are actually just repeating steps they read or saw somewhere on the net (see all the "get the drake sword" comments everywhere).

No, it's best to discover this game by yourself - even if you are missing stuff that way. I never used the Drake Sword once since I found it by myself really late in the game.

I also suggest to step down the couch advice a little bit since it takes out most of the fun when they explain every little thing that's around the next corner beforehand. This is not Dark Souls. Discovering Dark Souls by yourself is the real deal.

@bunji: No, but check your free hard drive space. I have that issue when I run low on my SSD with youtube videos.

Edited by thebigJ_A

Lies, Will Smith!! If you are sitting at a fire, you CAN get invaded. The fire goes out and your character stands up, ready to die.

It's just at Firelink shrine you can't get invaded. That's because there's no boss. Any area you beat the boss in is safe from invasion.

So much bad advice!! "Don't go down" Oh, you mean where the zweihander, caduceus shield, winged spear, a bunch of souls, and the binoculars are just sitting there for the taking? No, no, don't go there. Fail.

Ryan, read the strategy guide if you ever do play it again. There's so much false info out there. You can't even trust the wiki.

Dark Souls totally has story. And pretty deep, interesting lore. It's just that you have to work for it, and pay attention. It's not given to you in sissy cutscenes like those little girl games everyone else makes!

Exactly. I love it and especially the ambiguity of everything. NPCs lie to you and you never know if you're doing good or evil with your actions. And then there's that whole Pygmy discussion on the net...

Fascinating stuff.

Thoroughly impressed with Ryan's first try at Dark Souls, I really doubt I'd do as well, even following a guide.

With as clunky and deliberate as the combat in that game can be I really wouldn't have expected him to come to terms with it so quickly. Though, he might have been lucky with his heavy stamina use and the fearless ladder climbing.

Clappy Klepek. Ugh.

Posted by Beomoose

Bye, Melissa, and thanks for helping keep these knuckleheads on time!

Posted by CJduke

I'm reading the message and trying it out will smith! hahahaha

Posted by SethMode

Ryan's level of disdain is something that is epic in this video. Particularly the "blah blah blah behind the wall blah blah blah" part. I love watching other people torture themselves with Dark Souls.
