10 Things About Dark Souls

Saying the world of Dark Souls is vague is putting it lightly. This game drops you in with literally nothing except a few hastily scrawled messages on the floor of the prison cell where you awaken and it is up to you, the player, to find exactly what the hell is going on in Lordran.

Heck, perhaps you didn’t even know the world of Dark Souls is called Lordran. It’s not mentioned much. If you do a little digging into the game, you can literally piece together everything from the lore of the world to unique attacks that aren’t mentioned at all during the entire experience. Dark Souls is a game about learning, and Youtube content wizard and XP contributor TerraMantis is here to give you a lesson in the ways of Dark Souls.

In this vidja TerraMantis lets us in on the secret of deflecting big arrows in Anor Londo; defies the odds by beating the big burly Asylum Demon at the start of the game and has a shocking revelation about the ghosts who haunt the New Londo ruins…

Be sure to follow TerraMantis, call him awesome and rush off afterwards to Dark Souls to be amazed by your new-found knowledge.
