Watch Dark Souls beaten in less than an hour-and-a-half [VG247]


  • I can’t watch this because i don’t want spoilers. But i’ve seen the Demon’s Souls speedrun. It really makes you feel like less of a man when someone else takes 10 mins to do what i did in 3 days.

  • It’s hilarious when Bethesda did the speedrun of Skyrim and everyone was saying Winner: Dark Souls. Yet it looks like nope, the winner is in fact Skyrim…

    • Except that if skyrim is anything like morrowind/Oblivion. The main quest is all run from point A-B.

      Though how long it takes to finish the story is irrelevant.

      I still to this day haven’t finished oblivion. Despite having 200+ hours on the PS3 version and probably another 300 on the PC version.

      • Once I saw screenshots of the battles later in the game, I conceded that my PC was not up to scratch to run it. So I just stuck to downloading mods and mucking around.

        Ended up the same with Fallout 3. main quest get less and less interesting, so eventually gave up on it too.

  • I reckon I can do it in under 3 hours, not as spectacular as that but with a little practice, only thing would be learning the jumps in Tomb of Giants. The rest is amazing but he does get lucky a few times with the AI.

  • obviously not the first playthrough, and there are some continuity errors (ie. some NPCs are killed before they are “released”)
    Some save-quit cheatery going on and I suspect something dodgy is going on with the stamina too.

    However, this guy/girl is highly skilled and there’s no denying that.
    Pointless, like all speedruns, but impressive.

    • the saving and quitting would him reloading to retrieve an item from a body which has fallen out of reach. (its a mechanic of the game)

    • I still haven’t bought Dark Souls, but I played Demon’s Souls a lot… and I just recently started playing Vagrant Story for the first time so I’m very curious…

      In what ways does it remind you?
