Playing Dark Souls

How on earth did I manage to pick up a game thats almost 8 years old?



Well, first of all, Dark Souls Remastered finally got available for Switch last autumn and even if I'm a proud owner of the original it still made it possible for an entirely new group of gamers to enjoy this amazing game.

Dark Souls, and Dark Souls Remastered, are just about the same game. There's a bit better graphic in Remastered and on consoles they fixed the drops in framerate in Blighttown (not that it made the area better in any way…) but that's about it. So if you already own Dark Souls Prepare to die edition there is really no Point in buying the Remastered unless you want to Switch between consoles (pun intended).

I started my playthrough of Dark Souls about one week ago and are recording my gaming for Youtube. You can follow my adventures here.

The lore of this game is incredibly deep and there are several different ideas and theories about what's actually going on. You can find several different theories and explanations both in game and on Youtube. I would recommend Vatividya or The Ashen hollow on Youtube if you want to learn more about the lore of Dark Souls and Bloodborne.

Making plans

The holidays are over and it's time to start the new year. Do you have any new years resolutions? I have a few, and one of them is to focus more on my channel and my co-op with Erich and our live streams. That means a lot of planning.


Right now we're done with the planning for January and February. This time we'll aim for a theme each month and for January that theme is Throwback Thursday with "old" games (around 10 years old). February on the other hand will be a month of MMORPGs. 

Maybe, just maybe, we'll throw in a bit of World of Warcraft for Valentines day. Not because we particulary like Blizzard or the companys direction, but if there is one thing that WoW knows how to do it's events. And the Valentines event is no exception. 

So, join us on thursdays from 08:30 pm CET on Erichs channel! 

See you there!

And then another week just passed

I can hardly believe it but another week has just passed and it's time for another episode of Thursday Madness with Erich and yours truely.

Since we just passed Halloween, this week we'll tackle the Helldimensions (Again) for your viewing pleasure. We might even toss in a few extras if we got the feeling and don't get to tired.


Hell in The Secret World is an extreamly hostile, but still interesting place. According to the lore inside the game Hell was the dimension were the fabled second age took place. And the second age is the age that you can't hardly get any information about in the game.
Hell were once the place of a great civilisation that has now fallen to ruin. You can still see the traces of it in the three helldimensions that you can enter from The Overlook motel in The Savage Cost, in Transylvania and in Egypt. The reason hell looks like it does is because it's starved of anima, the Life force, and this starvation turned it's inhabitants into demons.

Join me and Erich at 08:30 pm GMT +1 (CET) for a Quick guide to the Helldimensions in Funcoms The Secret World Legends.

Home sweet home - and a crasched PC...

My PC descided that enough was enough and just shut down during a windows update. And, of cause, the entire thing just crasched next time I tried to boot it up.

So, one reset later and I'm back to zero again. All my games, all my save files was lost. And since I have a mobile connection to the internet I can't download everything at once. That means that I have to change my plans for the month of October and find some new games to play.

My first part of the Halloween-specials will be a first look at Home Sweet Home - the demo. The game has been out since september last year, but the demo is still available for free on steam. I'll put a link here if you like to try it out for yourself. The game is quite unique in that it's made by a Thai Indie-studio and based on Thai myths and legends.

Even though the game has a unique premise, it still feels a bit like PT, with long, winding corridors and doors and a ghost that will chase you if she finds you. All in all, a quite scary game this far even though I'm quite sure that the re-play value is fairly low. I still like it, and I will make a few more videos about the game later on. So, here you go. A first impression of Home Sweet Home;

Wednesday gaming with Erich

So... Life happened, and there won't be any livestreams this week, or the next week, or the week after that. To be perfectly clear: we really don't know when we will get back to our regular schedule. Hopefully sometime in October but right now we just don't know.

But there will be something up for each thursday anyway, and today we've been recording about 90 minutes worth of gameplay that will be split up between tomorrow and next week. The part that will be up tomorrow will be about The Darkness War in the Secret World Legends. And next week we will take on the Carpathian Fangs and do a few of the ordinary quests.

So join us on Erichs channel tomorrow for some discussion about crowded sleepingbags, the view of hell in different religions, and a bit of Cthulhu mytos. I'll put up a link as soon as one is awailable.

Cheers!


Lorethrough of Homesick

Ever played Homesick? Did you have the patiens to translate all the notes, books and newspapers? If not, then you have your chanse now. I am doing a lorethrough of Homesick, talking about how we might be playing as, as well as reading all the notes and other stuff scattered around the apartment complex.



I will also give  a full playthrough in case anyone got stuck somewhere, not knowing what to do.
Homesick is a quite easy game with pussles that are not to hard, but there are some places where it's not selfexplanatory and where some people might get stuck.

If you want to know more, just like, subscribe and klick that bell to know when the next part of my lorethrough is up.

Cheers!
