Unless you've been living in a cave for the last few months, you've no doubt noticed the Souls renaissance that's been happening on Giant Bomb for the last few months. By the time Vinny started on his journey to finish Dark Souls I'd already finished it but I still had the shadow of its predecessor hanging over my head.
When I first started playing Demon's Souls, way back in 2010, I wasn't really aware of what I was getting myself into. I made it five hours in, killing the Phalanx demon and the Armour Spider but getting completely stuck in the Tower of Latria. Fast forward 3 years later and I'd just beaten Dark Souls and I was feeling pretty good about myself. I started a new character in Demon's Souls and made another attempt. This time I made it further but I still hit a roadblock. I thought that was going to be the last I saw of a souls game until Dark Souls 2.
Then the Vinpocalypse happened. Vinny bent Dark Souls to his will in the most glorious and awe-inspiring ways and it gave me hope. I was going to beat Demon's Souls if it fucking killed me.
I did and it didn't. I finished the game without going insane or causing anyone any physical harm so I think I did pretty well.
Thanks Vinny, I guess.
P.S Fuck Dragon God.
