Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin • Die for the first time • 10G • 81.05% of gamers unlocked this
I don’t think I’m meant to be a Dark Souls player. I mean, very few people would be so inept that they die in the opening level by falling off a cliff into a waterfall.
Because I wasn’t having any luck with my first session that I started the other night while half asleep, I did what any self-respecting gamer does – I started again. Sure enough, while walking to the opening hut where you undertake character creation, my fat stubby fingers guided my cloaked character to the gaping chasm next to the bridge you are supposed to cross, and into the icy depths below.
It takes a special kind of stupid to achieve that.
When I did make it to the hut, I created a Mage (or Wizard? I can’t remember the terminology) hoping that it might be a better ranged fighter and I’d be able to try and kill at distance, but it’s attacks still seem to be close-quarters, so I’ll experiment for an hour or two and see how I go.
I doubt I’ll be in for the full ride with Dark Souls II, but I don’t want to knock-it-until-I’ve-tried-it, so I’m certainly giving it a try.
