Dude completes Dark Souls using voice commands

Check out the link and video here. As someone who has yet to beat the game, I do not understand how this is possible. It’s all about timing in the Souls games. How the hell do you deal with the delay from the voice recognition software? At the link is a video of his fight against Ornstein and Smough, which is generally considered the most difficult in Dark Souls. I know I died about 30 times fighting those bastards. I tried everything. Every possible armor configuration. Going in near naked to increase dodge speed. Going in tanked up and doing fatty rolls. Started with the lightning spear, then went on a side quest to forge the fury sword and stock up on humanity (fury sword scales damage with humanity) but to no avail. I could always easily beat one of them, but then would get one hit killed after the second one powered up. funny thing is, I stepped back from the game, played through Bloodborne, then picked it up again, walked into their boss room, and wiped the floor with them. I never even took any damage. It was 60 seconds of pure bliss. And that is why I love the Souls games. Oh – and I just started a new character, even though I have yet to beat it on my first character. Did a tank build the first time around, doing a sorcerer build this time. For first time players – sorcerer or pyromancer build == easy mode. So many of the bosses were just easy. Bell Gargoyles? Killed the first one before his fire breathing buddy had a chance to go to work on me. Bridge dragon? Cheesed his ass from under the bridge. Black Knights? Hide around a corner, and hit ’em with a Great Heavy Soul Arrow. The only one who has given me trouble so far has been the Capra Demon. And that just because of his god damned dogs.

  1. That’s funny. Someday I’ll play some souls (I’d probably do it now, but I don’t have a way to play DS1 because my PS3 is toast), and feel like I should play that first before DS2. Is that fair?

    As for the vid, I just watched it, and, uh, wow. I was skeptical before watching, but it seems plausible after watching. Still, I’m pretty sure some people have too much time on their hands.

    1. It’s available for your fancy new Win10 PC. $20 on Steam. Excuse eliminated. Now, how well it would run on that device? Dunno

      1. But I returned my Win10 device! It was a Core M proc, which isn’t great, but ran Witcher surprisingly well (better than my late 2012 2.5 ghz iMac Core i5). I already checked Steam, not available on Mac. Gah. I’m having returners remorse over my Win10 tablet.

Josh and J are very lonely. Please leave a reply. Pretty please?
