This insane human being completed Dark Souls, including every single boss, in a piddling 1:18.41. How do these people do it?
I never tire of watching Dark Souls speed runs. I think it’s because the game is so difficult, therefore watching people just easily destroy the game I struggled with for so long is sort of thrilling. It’s incredible really. This speed run differs from other runs where all bets are off. This is an ‘all bosses’ run, meaning that the player can’t skip any boss fights. At all.

That just makes it all the more impressive to me. More boss fights means more margin for error. It also means more time spent watching this stream with my jaw agape as bosses drop like flies. It’s really something to behold. It took me hours to beat Quelaag. This guy swipes her a couple of times and she’s toast. It almost seems unfair.
Another note: the order in which the bosses are taken down is also super strange. For example Ornstein and Smough are taken down long before the Capra Demon, which totally goes against what normal players would do. But this is a speed run. Anything goes. That’s what makes the process so fascinating to watch.
