Today's Punishment: 30 Minutes Of Pointless Death In Dark Souls

Alright, you sinners. Last week's confessional was ... adequate. I still feel that you are holding back, and you cannot purify your gaming soul unless you make a full accounting of all your trespasses. So we're going to have another round of punishment today, starring Dark Souls.

This is 10 minutes (entirely in Japanese) of a woman playing the Demon's Souls successor and dying repeatedly (seen via Game Informer). Should you find this footage compelling there are two more videos. You only have to watch this one though. Play it, then in the comments tell us how long you lasted before you hit stop or mute, and confess your gaming sins.

Here's mine: I lasted 1:46, and I once ragequit a game of MLB Stickball against a human opponent when I lost the no-hitter in the fourth inning.

I'm not saying punishment will be back next week, but depending upon the quality of your contrition, I'm not saying it won't, either.


    Ugh. At least Camping Mama had a tune to it. There's nothing worse than watching SOMEONE ELSE play a game. Doubly-more when they absolutely suck at it and have practically no qualities of any normal gamer (ie. That guy ain't no gamer.)

    When does Dark Souls come out in Australia? I've been hearing the 4th and 7th overseas, but went into JB today and their displays listed it as the 27th of October(!).

      Pretty sure it is October 6.

      Game and BIG W have the best price so far at $88 bucks and it is the Limited Edition!


    I sometimes run a Bouncy Shield Ork Mekboy in Dawn of War 2 Last Stand. And use the Bouncy Shield on melee focused allies.

    She only dies once in the whole clip. Then they cut back to replay some of her battles.

    1:44 - stopped for the main reason that the low resolution of the video was doing my head in. I've never played Demon's; so I wanted a GOOD look at this game and it was just too crap to watch.

    Gaming sin... uhhh... Sometimes I pretend that "planning to go somewhere and checking a FAQ to make sure I'm not wasting time" is really "better" than just using a walkthrough. I'm pretty sure it isn't really any better.
