I can't believe what I'm seeing. But this is real. This is legitimate. This man is destroying bosses that took me hours to beat. And he's doing using his fists.
This ties nicely into some thoughts I've been having about Dark Souls in general, about the balance between raw strength, levels, equipment and actual technique and skill. On my current playthrough of Dark Souls I'm stuck on Ornstein and Smough, the notoriously difficult boss battle in Anor Londo. I've taken some time out to level up, and upgrade my weapons. The process is painfully slow. It's a major grind and I can't decide if my time would be better spent actually practicing the boss fight itself, as opposed to simply levelling myself and my gear. Is it more important to simply get better at playing the game, improve my ability to read the patterns? Sometimes It's difficult to strike the right balance.
Videos like this make me realise just how important technique actually is in Dark Souls and how, for the most part, it takes precedence over levels.
If you've ever played Dark Souls for any length of time, this video is well worth watching.
