Bolen vs Dark Souls

Let's Play: Bolen vs Dark Souls

After Death Week, Bolen wanted to show Craig how to REALLY play Dark Souls. Craig gave him 90 minutes to work his magic. They both learned a lot about each other that day.


Death Days premieres THIS THURSDAY at 4pm CT - LIVE on Game Attack's YouTube channel.

    This was literally the best ending possible for Death Week.  Please make Craig play DS2 and then have Day 8 be Bolen catching up to him in a 2 hr special for First Members.  This is great.

    I didn't believe them, I found a 43 min speed run, what the fuck. I mean it's obviously not a 100% completion but come on!

      It's a glitch run. I watched one done in 27 minutes or so. I don't find it overly impressive when someone skips 80% of the game doing something literally anyone can do.


      For those wondering, after you ring the two bells a new area opens in Firelink Shrine. If you go and drop down the bottomless pit in that area and force-quit the game after the game registers your death, when you restart the game it spawns you in the final area.

      @Flux_Casey 

       While normally I agree with you, to beat Dark Souls in sub 30 min is still pretty damn impressive. That requires you to beat Quelaag, Blightown, Gargoyles, and Gwyn. All while being exceedingly underleveled for most of those regions and Bosses. Essentially, showing a mastery of the mechanics of the game that most people do not have the patience for. So while as you put it literally anyone can do the skip, not everyone is capable of beating those bosses that quick. That requires a lot of time and effort, and separates runners from the rest of us. 


      Also thanks for pointing out how these times are achieved, I didn't know that a glitch skip was possible.

    I loved this! Great job guys, I do hope I can see Craig react to more dark souls bosses, either with Bolen or with himself playing.

    The world record speed run is 25 min 17 seconds. Just FYI. In case any one was too lazy to google.

    I want these videos to continue because there is SOOO much content in Dark Souls that Craig hasn't seen. Craig needs to be wrecking enemies with a 40 Strength, heavy imbued great hammer in part 50. It's like watching me taking 120 hours on a sorcerer build, then losing my mind with a crystal longsword.

    it is so fun to see how first timers play this game. i still play this game and watching Bolen play this i forget no one really plays this game. So funny though.

    I have a feeling I'm going think Bolen sucks a dark souls also by the end of this but I haven't watched it yet so we'll see

    Just a tip: parrying those spear guys is extremely easy and it'll save you a lot of grief.

    Think it was harder for me to watch Bolen then it was to watch Craig.

      When Craig was playing we knew he knew nothing so there were no expectations. Bolen knows how to play but knows less about how the game works than one would expect from someone who completed it. Like how he could have bought titanite shards from the blacksmith to upgrade his stuff (ironically if he listened to Craig and checked that he would have found out). Like how he doesn't realise spears (like the partizan) scale with dexterity, not strength. And that he doesn't check that either.


      Don't get me wrong, it's a good thing when Bolen is acting as the guide. Even when he really really wants to give all the advice he can (and that's a sore temptation in these kinds of LPs, I know from experience) he can't. Because he doesn't know either. So Craig actually gets as close to a pure Dark Souls experience as one can and that's awesome to watch.


      Of course, now that the game is going to be played on live stream, the audience are going to be backseating the fuck out of them.
