Well, I thought it is due time that I get myself well and seated in the soul’s game, and with the help of technology and a much-needed PC upgrade, I was able to get my ass back in the game. You might be curious what I mean when I say, by technology, well this time around I am playing this game completely on the https://rpcs3.net/ emulator. Excitement and bewilderment confronted me, when I first loaded the game. For this being the older of the bunch, not mentioning the Kings Field games of course. My expectations are high, while still having a realistic level of excitement. Starting out this felt much easier and very welcoming, than how I encountered Dark Souls. The path and environments are not as linear and easy to understand as you would expect. Speaking of which, the first section of the game is very unclear on what you exactly need to do. What I mean is that I was running around blindly killing shit for hours before I finally figured out the hub and its purpose for both progress and fulfillment of the story.
The first section presents us in a large castle and there are hordes of zombie fiends and other disgusting beasts. It’s very depressing and downtrodden setting, much of what you have found comfortable and inviting with this style of games that fromSoft has given us. Well so far, I love the pace and the setting because it allows me enough time to get my bearings together and to learn the proper art of dueling and sparring with enemies.
The first boss is this giant black lava oozing blob that has these butcher knives that shoot out and try to kill you. I found it especially helpful to use the turpentine to enhance my weapons and summersault around the boss. It was with this victory that put in me my hope and determination to conquer the rest of the game.
