Bloodborne is coming out on Wednesday and one thing is certain: that game is going to make temporary widows of many a long-suffering husband or wife. One insane man has a 'solution': get his wife to beat the first boss of every Souls game in preparation for the launch of Bloodborne. Maybe then she'll understand.
Somehow I doubt it.
Be aware: these videos come with a full-on explicit language warning.
I'm imagining trying the same experiment on my own wife, who enjoys a lot of video games (mainly Pikmin and Pixel Junk Monsters) but actively loathes From Software games. Who can blame her: she's had to watch me repeat the same sections over and over and over again. How would she react to this challenge? I'm guessing she flat-out absolutely would refuse to partake.
But maybe this is a worthwhile exercise. Maybe this would work for some potential husbands or wives. At the very least it would help build in some empathy for those moments when you get stuck trying to beat one particular boss over and over and over again. Maybe they'll have some level of understanding?
Perhaps the coolest thing about this video is how awesome the wife becomes at Dark Souls when it comes time to fight the first boss in Dark Souls II. She absolutely messes The Last Giant up.
