Dark Souls Absurd Speed Run: Less Than 1.5 Hours

Okay, these speed runs are starting to freak me out.

A few days ago, we learned about the two Bethesda employees who completed the campaign in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in about 2 hours and 16 minutes. That was plenty insane enough. Seriously.

But considering the insane difficulty of Dark Souls, this might be even more ridiculous. Below is part one of SexyShoiko's speed run through From Software's demanding RPG; there are seven parts in total (click through to YouTube if you want to see them all), and the final play time comes in at 1 hour, 26 minutes and 28 seconds. ...give me a break. Nuts.

I've been trying to figure out how much time is required to do something like this. What do you think? About 16 hours a day for a solid week? Longer? No doubt that it's impressive as hell but with stuff like this, I have...other questions.

The guy must have been a hardcore Demon's Souls player.
Wouldn't it be awesome if there's actually a competition for this?

Well I mean, he only fights the enemies he has to. That alone reduces a lot of time spent in the single player mode.

Very impressive. I'm only watching up until the point of the game that I'm at, don't want any spoilers.

Pretty easy if you have a levled up character from a previous game who so lvl'd up that new game plus doesn't even affect his game. Man I'm 63hrs in and I need to defeat 4 more bosses in areas foreign to me...this game is huge and punishing. I don't love this game by any means but I need to finish it to prove to myself I was up for the challenge. SO I guess I do love this game, but I sure to hate it as well...too hard for no damn reason. Poor job on their part, thank god for blue phantoms but this game kind of depends on them until you get strong enough and are allowed to make good-great weapons.

That is pretty cool, heck of a speedrun.

I find myself mainly doing speedruns these days, adds a little bit of a challenge.

"I'd like to see you try running past all those enemies."

Once you know enemies attack pattern it s no problem and you can be sure this guy played practically non stop since it came out .The game not hard once you know enemies weakness and what weapon/upgrade to go for at a certain point ( the difficulty is exaggerated anyway ).



" BTW already got the game but only played the tutorial..is me or the graphics are worse than the first game. "

No seem better all the way for me .

This player clearly knows where to go and the enemies weakness/strategy to a tee.

Once I learned that in demon's souls bosses didn't seem so threatening. Actually laughed at myself on how I died so much in the beginning and how I didn't realized how much easier these games actually get once you figure a few things out. Definitely not the type of game that you just blatently attack enemies, thats for sure.
