With Brad having DOTA 2 withdrawals (I think I speak for most of us when I say finally), it seems the site will be missing a "pivotal" feature, but have no fear cause Vindawg may be here to save the day. And he's bringing one of my all time favourite games with him. I just wanted to make this topic to let people know who may have missed the tweet, and to also perhaps show Vinny, Rorie and Ian that this community is fully onboard for this idea (I know there's a lot of Souls fans in this place, maybe not to Neogaf levels of evangelism but still). I think it goes without saying that we don't spoil anything unless Vinny gets really stuck and prompts us for help. I really hope he goes through with this idea and with Scoops planning to tackle Dark Souls later down the line, we'll have plenty of Souls goodness to binge on.

Didn't Vinny already finish it? Maybe that was Demon's Souls.

#3 Posted by Morningstar (2150 posts) -

Daily Vinny would be great.

#4 Posted by jclane (337 posts) -

@cale: Yeah he finished Demon's Souls but not Dark Souls. I personally still find the former more difficult despite playing the latter first.

:D

That would be great. I just hope it is a free stream like Daily Dota.

Just don't jinx it and throw out any antiquated terms relating to 'stamina marathons'

#8 Posted by cutyoface (544 posts) -

That would be amazing.

#9 Posted by killacam (1284 posts) -

so so down... though I'm only about 15 hours in and don't really want it spoiled. so conflicted!

"Finally?" Man, good thing I'm not one of those people, phew. Dodge a bullet there.

But hey, if it happens that could be fun to watch I guess

#12 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1255 posts) -

Sounds awesome. A Daily Feature that has Vinny, Matt, and Ian screaming obscenities at a punishing game would be worth my premium subscription.

Anything with the words "Daily" and "Vinny" in it is guaranteed gold.

Man, it would make up for those hundreds of hours of uninteresting premium content(DOTA2) that I have only watched half an hour of before turning it off.(I really despise MOBAS)

Dark Souls was one of the best game of 2011 and only Vinny gave a crap about it(Patrick watched some LPs, but those don't count)

Please use the embed Tweet option whilst making use of the forums on Giant Bomb dot com.

The CBSi family thanks you for your cooperation in this matter.

@fattony12000: Wow, I dunno how I missed that. Editing the OP now.

EDIT: Doesn't appear to be working for me, hmm

You mean Dark Souls right? Dark Souls 2 isn't out yet.

:D

Canada!

Quick! Someone make a Daily Dark Souls artwork. Something with Vinny wielding a sword wearing a shirt that says Vin Co. If there is artwork they have to do it. :)

#19 Posted by RazielCuts (2949 posts) -

When's Dark Souls II out? They should do it for that so we can all wander in the dark together. With the added bonus of there not being people in the comments saying 'you're doing it wrong' like there was for Chrono Trigger and Persona 4. Not that this would be an Enduring Marathon or anything..

My prayers have been heard.

#21 Posted by cloudnineboya (797 posts) -

Excellent news may it be the first of many ENDU.......UNS to come, this is why i sub and i fucking demand the content i ask for, if you don't ask you don't get! my mother always told me.

#22 Posted by JZ (2125 posts) -

Oh please god make this happen!

#23 Edited by Hassun (1068 posts) -

If @vinny, @ltsquigs or @rorie need any help with patches (no, not Patches) or mods or anything else about the game I will be more than happy to help. In fact, I will be more than happy to invade them and make their lives miserable as well. Whatever makes for the best content.

#24 Posted by peritus (993 posts) -

That would be so cool :D

#25 Posted by EXTomar (4677 posts) -

I am not going to be excited about just watching another person Dark Souls again. On the other hand, I would be more interested in seeing more of a "challenge" where viewers suggest things which Vinny must stick with.

Nope, just for the few idiots that complain about content that takes away from nothing and that they don't have to watch just because they don't like it.

#27 Edited by JZ (2125 posts) -
#28 Edited by jclane (337 posts) -

@2headedninja: I doubt they would let 2 Daily streams co-exist, so if Daily Dota goes way of the dodo for Dark Souls then I'm all for it.

#29 Posted by 2HeadedNinja (1597 posts) -

@jz said:

@2headedninja: yeah not liking dota makes us the idiots.

not liking dota makes you people that not like dota ... complaining about dota content you don't have to watch makes you idiots.

the dota stream has never really been daily, at best it was weekly. If there actually was a Dark Souls stream that would not be daily either.

#30 Posted by jclane (337 posts) -

@2headedninja: Even still, the DOTA talk bleeds into other stuff like the Bombcast and what not. Not to mention the 'what if?' scenario if it got replaced by something much more worthwhile. Sure, it seems like a selfish request, but I think DOTA 2 has had its time in the spotlight on this site for one year.

I have trouble believing Vinny has time for this, but I've enjoyed watching Dark Souls in the past. I hope he doesn't play it like Rorie though, turtling everything. Go flashy or go home!

There was a while when Brad was talking about it in the "What are you playing" segment because thats what he was ... well playing. And one bit when they talked about the international because even if you don't like the game that tournament was big news in gaming. Thats it ... unless you are actually complaining about the occasional 2 minutes on dota in a ~3 hour podcast.

Don't get me wrong, I would like to see a stream of Vinny playing Dark Souls, but the complaining about dota that happens on this site speeded past unreasonable into "dumb" territory really fast.

@2headedninja:

It was daily for quite awhile actually.

Maybe at the beginning, I'm mostly judging by archived streams on this site because being german I usually can't watch any live-streams. Even if it was actually daily for a while that time has long passed.

#35 Posted by Ravelle (1249 posts) -

This would be great, I hope he's aware of the mods.

#37 Posted by Iron_Tool (219 posts) -

That would be BEYOND AWESOME!!!!!!! Make it so!!

#38 Posted by obcdexter (592 posts) -

I would shit my pants in excitement if that was really gonna happen!
Still: They should absolutely do that. Fuck my pants, I'll get a new pair!

Also: If they're gonna play the PC version, hopefully they'll be smart enough to DSfix and DSCfix it (it's really not tricky at all). Heck, after that they could so easily summon themselves whenever cooperation seems needed.

Arguably the most important part of DSfix, the FPS unlocker, is broken right now due to the recent update.

A guy on reddit posted a workaround to deal with that issue. Tested it myself, worked perfectly well for me. :)

Aaaaand: This just in!

#41 Posted by Hassun (1068 posts) -

DSfix 2.1 is only a stopgap, the real update should come later.

#42 Posted by Aetheldod (3552 posts) -

Yes please :D @vinny you need to do this Dark Souls thing

#43 Posted by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

Fuck yeah. I've been meaning to jump back into the Dark Souls madness. Watching Vinny play will have to do as I make my way through GTA.

#44 Posted by crusader8463 (14419 posts) -

Zero interest in the game, but Vinny has a way to make otherwise boring stuff good. Will give it a shot. Can't be any worse then that terrible DOTA series. That game is as exciting as watching already dried paint dry some more.

#45 Posted by Excast (905 posts) -

Looks like it is yet another in a growing list of premium only features unfortunately.

Oh well.

#46 Posted by SecondPersonShooter (616 posts) -

I just beat Dark Souls a month ago and I genuinely think it's one of the best games I've ever played.

Majorly looking forward to this feature.

#47 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5414 posts) -

Can't freaking wait!

#48 Edited by OneKillWonder_ (1726 posts) -

Now THIS I would watch. Hell, it might even get me to finish the game. I'd try to play alongside wherever he was. It's really bothered me that I never finished it.

#49 Posted by Zaccheus (1792 posts) -

I'd watch Vinny doing anything. Anything.

#50 Posted by Nardak (472 posts) -

A bit over 6 hours and counting for Vinny´s Dark Soul stream...well at least the stream description says "load our last souls".
