♪ (old-school video game music) ♪ Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition. Is this gonna be scary? Why do you always make me
play scary games? I’m not about that life, man. Solely based off the font, it’s going to involve
magic and witchcraft. I’ve never played this game. But the appeals of this game
and what makes it so popular is that it’s really, really hard,
apparently, to beat. My friend played it,
and he told me that it was just like the most difficult game
he’s ever played in his life. All right. I get a character. Sweet! Oh yes. Okay, we’re doing male, ’cause males rule. I’m just gonna make myself
a really hot guy. Okay, is this name? Uh, let’s see. Jassasaurus. Okay,
we’ll just go with that. This is what people used to
call me in elementary school. Isn’t that cute? Morgiesmores? (typing) Oh! Okay. “Low-ranking knight. High HP.
Solid armor. Not easily toppled.” And finally, “Fearless…
high-strength…” I think I’m just gonna
go with the warrior. He’s gonna be a sorcerer. Because sorcerers like magic. I think I’m gonna be a knight, you know? I’m liking my stats. I’m liking being level five,
having a high vitality rate. Which one has the swaggiest outfit? “Cleric” or “depri–” (gasps) oh my god. You know what? This is a good game. Every body size is in here,
you know what I mean? I can have gold hair? His hair is going to be… Okay, that’s disgusting.
It looks like a mushroom. Let’s go with “wild,” because who doesn’t
like to go a little wild every once in a while? Accept. Okay! Let’s go! (narrator) The world was
unformed, shrouded by fog. This is my kind of a game.
I just want you guys to know that. I love this. Ooh, there’s dragons in this. Is that a dragon or a rock? “And with fire came disparity.” (narrator) Then from the dark… – Oh, shoot.
– (narrator) They came. Zombies? (narrator) …and found
the Souls of Lords… (reciting along) …within the flame. Whoa, what the heck is that? This just got really intense. (narrator) Nito, the first of the dead. Hmm, Nito seems like a great guy. – (narrator) The Witch of Izalith.
– Oh, sh– – (narrator) And her Daughters of Chaos.
– Uh-oh. He looks pretty cool too. These are some
interesting characters here. – (narrator) With the strength of Lords…
– “Lords.” As soon as they bring in the choir–
I’m so hooked right now. Why do you always have
to kill the freakin’ dragons? Why can’t we be chill with
the dragons and work together? This is a little intense here.
This is a lot of stuff happening. It’s kind of a sensory overload. – (narrator) And Seath the Scaleless…
– Wow, Seath. Good job. – (narrator) And the dragons were no more.
– Dang it. I wanted to fight the dragons. Wait, no. Come on! Dragons are cool, dude. Why would you kill them?
Look how pretty it is. It’s pretty AF. – (narrator) Thus began the Age of Fire.
– “Fire.” (narrator) But soon the flames
will fade, and only Dark… – A lot of…
– (narrator) …will remain. …dark over here. (narrator) Even now,
there are only embers. Oh, so they’re, like–
the sun is going away, I guess. (narrator) And amongst
the living are seen, carriers of the accursed Darksign. This is very well put together. It’s kinda cool. I mean, it has
that medieval vibe, which I dig. (narrator) The Darksign brands the Undead. So they ARE zombies. I was right. (Finebros) They’re actually
called the Undead. Same thing. (narrator) The Undead
are corralled and led to the north… Am I Undead? Why am I in jail? (narrator) …to await
the end of the world. Oh. What? Am I a lady? What the heck? That looks like I’m definitely very dead. There’s me. (startled) Oh. That’s not me. What? I still got the lipstick
going on though– It vibrated. What the heck? What are you doing? That guy looks cool. Am I gonna take its soul? (gasps) Can I take its soul? “Northern Undead Asylum.” Oh good. We start in
Undead Asylum. That’s great. Someone dropped me off some light. So I’m not a zombie Undead
anymore, ’cause look at that. I look dead. Yeah, I’m very dead. So now I’m gonna grab this light,
and I’m gonna pillage– Oh, I got a key. Okay.
So I’m not alive yet. Open sesame. Oh. Probably shouldn’t have
used that, whatever that was. “Right stick: camera controls.” Oh, yeah. I figured that out. Thank you. B’s to dodge. I think
that’s super important. “RB: attack.” All right. Yeah, attack him! Yeah, yeah! Yeah! Get in there, little bitch! Nope. Can I get anything from you? No, you have nothing
from me? I’m sorry then. That was unnecessary and kind of rude. Oh, what the frick-frack?
What are you? Is that a dragon? (gasps) Sick! Is that a dragon? Yo, I’m gonna free you, dude! It’s like a fat obese dragon. Maybe a reflection of our society. “Hold B to dash.” Oh, to run. Okay, cool. And then this is to dodge. “Read message.”
“Target lock,” that’s important. What’s up? What’s up? What’s up? I’ma get some XP. Ooh. Boom. Little button combo. ♪ Climbin’ up, climbin’ up ♪ ♪ I’m climbin’ up the ladder ♪ Let’s go. “Rest that bonfire to recover HP.” Okay. So this is a bonfire. All right, that’ll cover my HP. Oh, it’s this ga– Ohhhhhhhhh. Ohhh– Oh, it’s thi– Okay, I’ve seen people play this game. I’m not gonna rest.
There’s no time for sleeping. Let’s open the door. And this looks like
a battle arena of sorts. Get away! Oh, cute! Oh, shoot. Is it in here? Oh, okay, it’s not in this room. I was scared I was gonna walk in, and it was gonna be right in my face. Oh, it is right in my face. It is right in my face.
Get away, get away. What the hell? Oh, snap. Oh, snap. (startled gasp) Nope, nope, nope. Nope. Oh god, it saw me. What do I do? I don’t have time for you, boy. Got to run, got to run, got to run. How in the hell am I supposed to do this? Ew, I’m closing up on
its thunder thighs over here. (in game: explosion, character yelps) Run. Run. Run. Go. Go. I’m definitely gonna die. (demon roars) Did I just die? I did. Okay. No! Please don’t tell me I’m dead. No, no, no. You have
to be kidding me right now. (gasps) I almost– wait. One more, one more, one more. One more! No, no, no, no!
Don’t die, don’t die, don’t die, don’t die, don’t die, don’t die,
don’t die, don’t die, don’t die. Are you kidding me? Look at that! That’s like a centimeter! God dang it! Can I just outrun it? Oh, I was right by the– wow. Of course. But it can’t get in here,
I’m guessing. Ha! So yep. Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep. Got to go over there. Gonna roll. Yep! Made it just in time. Oh, it’s a monster. Wow, I got away. (sighs deeply) I got this. I got this. I got this. Just stay right here
and then throw the bombs at him. Good plan, Rae. Let me have it. Let me have it. Yeah, recover lost power. Recover that. Okay, yeah, I’m getting away. – (in game: loud crash)
– Jesus Christ! No! X. – (in game: character groans)
– Oh, shoot. That was a– Aah! Aah! Oh my god! Oh my god! Oh my god! How do I– how do I do this? Oh my god! Throw the bombs at him. Die. Frick! Oh my god. How do I beat him? Oh. I’m getting away. I’m getting away. I don’t have to beat it.
I just have to run away. Oh, woo, I figured it out! I need to hurt him. No. Oh! Did I just do that right? I don’t have to kill him, right?
Like, I don’t have to k– I can keep going on with the game. I just d– I just did it. All right, let’s go. (in game: loud crashing) Oh shoot, yo. I escaped. Ha ha ha! “Bonfire lit.” Let’s go. I’m pretty sure the goal right now
is to find a suitable weapon to protect myself in armor. This game’s a piece of cake. Where’s my shield? Is it in here? Whoa, whoa! Dude, why? Oh, arrow! (sighs) I was so close
to getting hit right there. Okay, so I have a shield.
I wanna get that. Maybe “browse items.” “Start,” “open menu,” “arms icon,”
“change equipment.” Start. Start. Change equipment. Uh… Cool. Now I have actual things to do the thing. I thought it was– Oh, okay. So I still got shot. So now I’m gonna go like this. And this guy’s gonna die. Yeah, you see that, you little bitch? Oh, you’re running away, are you? Well, you won’t get far. Oh. Heck yeah. Oh, did you see dat combo doe? I’ma traverse the white light. (in game: ominous hum) (gasps) Where did I just go? Okay. Whatever. Okay. Oh, there we go. A. Here. Rating 3. Yay? What does that mean? Okay. Oh! Are you kidding me? (startled yelp) Mother of god, where did that come from? The stairs are good? Oh. I’m gonna go up first. Oh. That was a bad idea. Oh! That sucked. Oh, Jesus Christ, what the hell? That was not cool. Oh. (in game: squelching, creature hissing) Wait, I don’t get it.
If they’re Undead and I’m Undead, why are you fighting against me? It was you that pushed it, wasn’t it? Ooh, a little roll. And you’re dead. Yeah, taste the might of my broadsword. The Chosen One. Okay, it’s locked. Of course it’s locked. So I guess I have to go down. Go this way? Is this the way he came? Yeah. Oh shoot, hey. A. (in game) Oh, you. You’re no Hollow, eh? Oh, what’s a Hollow? Okay. Oh, that sucks. Oh, that was the guy
I saw in the beginning. That sucks. Yeah, what’s up? (in game) You and I, we’re both Undead. Okay, so if he’s Undead, then why wouldn’t you have
helped me in the first place? Like, obviously I’m not– Oh my god, I hate games like this. I can’t. I feel so pressured. Like, what if I make the wrong choice? I’m gonna help him and see what happens. Yes, sir, I will help you. (in game) I have failed in my mission. Okay, so he’s a terrible knight. (in game) But perhaps
you can keep the torch lit. When thou ringeth the Bell of Awakening, the fate of the Undead thou shalt know. – Well, now you know.
– “Shalt”? “Thou”? I can’t handle the language, man. (in game) I’m done for,
I’m afraid. I’ll die soon. – (grunts with impact)
– Oh. Can I take his stuff? – (Finebros) Why’d you kill him?
– ‘Cause I wanted his stuff. And he just said he was done for anyway. Oh, and I got the key.
See, I had to kill him to get the key. (Finebros) You didn’t actually
have to kill him to get it. Oh… well. (in game) Oh, and this. The key. Thank you. Thanks, bro. There we go. Heck yeah. Awesome. So keys and potions. Thanks, man. I will carry on your mission. All right. But I got the key now. So– oh, it’s probably
for the one that was up here. Okay. Open. One, two, three, open. “Read message.” “Wield right weapon two-handed.” Ooh, I like that. “Sorc–” Yes. Okay. (Finebros) Try your attack buttons. Oh, yes! Ranged attack. Oh snap. Let’s go, boy. Ooh, one-hit kill. Oh god, no! [Bleep] you, bitch! Yeah. Yeah, okay. What the hell are you doing? Stop following me. Yes, this thing. Oh, that fully refills– that’s great. Lock onto this guy. Block. (in game: squelching) I’m guessing we’re gonna go through here. Oh snap. (chuckling) Oh snap. I don’t think I should go in here yet. So we’re just gonna walk back– oh no! Gosh darn it. Darn it. Darn it to heck. Roll! Oh sn– Well, [bleep]. Wingardium Leviosa. I see something down there. Oh, it’s the Asylum Demon. Oh god, whoa! Oh my god. I need to revive myself. I’m not going to die. No. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my– Whoa! Whoa! I’m on top of the dude. And he knows it. Hey. How’s it goin’? Whoa! I’m not on top of the dude anymore. Oh, now we’re fighting this guy. Shoot, I forgot the– what was the button to click
to attack when you’re– Oh my god! What the heck? What the heck? Oh my god! That was awesome. Everything is difficult about this game. You have to remember
all the freakin’ attacks, and I’m horrible at remembering stuff.
Like, I’m the worst. Oh. It’s never ending.
I’m never gonna remember. Oh my gosh. (sighs) Note to self. Oh, then there’s, like, a white light. – Am I supposed to do that too?
– (Finebros) Try it. No, I don’t want to do it. I hear something on
the other side. I don’t wanna. Oh, it’s under there. No, I don’t want to be here. Oh my god, it wants me to jump. It wants me to jump and attack it. – (platform crumbles)
– What the hell? It’s– it killed me. It just killed me. “Read message.” “While falling plunging
attack.” All right. What does that do? Wait, go back. Wait, no. Can I go back?
Frick. What was it? Aah! Shoot, are you kidding me?! I missed my shot! God dang it! Oh, and now I have to start all over. Okay, all right. Let’s get through this. This is so annoying. Are you kidding me? Gosh darn it! Oh no… okay. Well, at least I’m here. Oh, but that means– So now I have to go all the way back. (creature wheezes) That’s right. “Blech” is right. Okay. All right. So “while falling–” so I hold RB. All right. I’m gonna
recover my lost power. And then I’m going
to traverse the white light. Okay. So now this time,
I’m gonna start with a good old stab. That was so lame.
Oh, it did a lot of damage though. Let’s kill him. Noooooo. Yes. (in game: crashing) I need to get through this. Oh, I’m stuck. What’s going on? Why doesn’t it– Oh! I got stuck on a thing. I can’t get away from him. Like, my character just stands there while he pummels me into the floor. I think I just died again. (sighs deeply) Get up, get up, get up, get up. God dang it, get up! Run, run, run. Run! Frick frack a diddly dack. Oh my god, no. – (Finebros) Heal!
– Oh right, I have that. No! I died! Oh no. He can fly, he can fly. (frustrated) Oh! I ain’t done. I ain’t missin’. I ain’t missin’. Now, pay attention. Don’t wanna miss this. I just killed the Asylum Demon.
That’s what’s up. Like a boss. What did I say? – (demon snarls)
– And I’m going to do that. And I’m not gonna– Whoa, he can fly! But I can dodge. I can dodge. And I’m going to attack. Attack, attack. That wasn’t really as hard
as I thought it was gonna be. (Finebros) What’s the message
right there say? “While falling–” oh,
that makes sense now. “While falling, right button
to do plunging attack.” (in game: squelching) (demon snarls) (squelching, demon snarls) Heck yeah! Kill it. Kill it. Kill it. Kill it. Screw you, dragon. B, break pots. Aah! Into the way of danger,
because I’m a fool. X. I– [Bleep]! I hate this stupid, big fat bitch! No. Oh my god. Oh my god, these vases. Get– fine, smash them.
Get them out of my way. He’s gonna kill me.
He’s gonna kill me again. – (Finebros) You got to run!
– I can’t run. I’m trapped by these vases.
Like, not even kidding. Yes, yes. Did I do it? Woooo! Victory achieved! (in game: crashing) I’m so close, yet so far. I’m so close. I’m so close. I did it! Heck yeah! Okay. Oh. – (Finebros) You missed!
– I missed? No. Oh my god. Wait, did I kill him? Oh my god! (sighs deeply) Die, mother[bleep]! That’s what’s up… bitch. Ugh. He has me cornered. Oh, [bleep]! Yes! Aahhh! [Bleep] you, buddy! (Finebros) So what
do you think about Dark Souls? I liked it. I’m not very good at remembering controls. So I was struggling with that
and trying to dodge stuff and shoot and kill the bosses and the beasties. Strategy games are really hard for me, because I’m not very good at strategy. It challenges you in a way where you got to memorize patterns
and dodge and hit. I like choosing your own character. Like, that’s very important to me, because it allows you to make the person maybe a reflection of who you are. I also love that
there’s a story behind it. Like, stories in games is what
makes the game so much fun. (Finebros) So would you ever
play this game again? Yeah, I would probably
go home and play it, honestly. I thought it was a really fun game. I personally wouldn’t buy it. I would just get super
addicted to this game. So I don’t wanna keep myself
in my room for eight months. No. Like, if it was a little animated show, I would watch it and see what happened. It’s too hard. It’s not fun,
’cause I can’t remember anything. Thanks for watching us play
