Dark Souls II – PART 35 – Domestic Dispute Denouement
I finish up in Harvest Valley and the Earthen Peak before heading back to the Shaded Ruins and having a chat with Manscorpion Tark. And then we murder his wife! Good times.
I fool around in the Shaded Ruins for a time afterwards before heading into the next area to Brightstone Cove Tseldora and backtracking to a PvP area.
I make it to Kakariko Village, meet with Impa to learn about lore and the like again, and then find a bunch of chickens for a VERY SAD MAN. Oh, and we get more stamina after finishing the nearby combat tutorial shrine.
Like with Dark Souls, I completely disregard health for a very long time in preference of being able to do some pretty dope maneuvers.
Just sketching some Splatoon. I’m very glad the Splat Brella is available for multiplayer now, after a MONTH of it being in the singleplayer, but I still hate how Crusty Sean’s Gear Ability drink tickets seem to be utterly worthless.
I continue on towards, through, and past the Dueling Peaks, completing multiple shrines and activating a Sheikah Tower which will all surely be content claimed by Nintendo.
Jokes on YOU, Nintendo, nobody cares about what I do.
Anyways, I get the Sheikah Sensor and a horse, whom I name Bubba.
I head into the Shaded Woods, fight a bunch of invisible people, and panic after getting shouted at by a tree and run out the other side.
Then, I muck about in the Shaded Ruins beyond for a bit and return to Majula, Harvest Valley, and the Forest of the Fallen Giants for some items I’d missed.
Well, here’s an episode that’s going to be content-claimed to crap (not like all the other ones haven’t been as well…).
I finish the Great Plateau by getting Cryonis and (re)learn that the old man is actually a dead old man who gives me a bit of fabric wrapped around a wooden frame for my troubles. Then I leave the Plateau and begin the trek to Kakariko Village.
Still trying to learn the new recording hardware, I forget to start recording and, rather than have an hour of missing gametime, I start over instead.
I get substantially less far in comparison to the first attempt because I get distracted by the old man’s clothes and don’t even get off the Great Plateau, only managing to get to the third Shrine this time.
