This series has been amazing. I started watching because I was debating playing dark souls myself. I don’t think I will as it seems like a game that i could only enjoy playing with someone. Someone to give support to get through the parts that are a grind. Also having watched you complete it I kind of feel like I have too. The fight with Sif, where at the end you both go quiet in anticipation that you are finally going to do it made me genuinely a bit emotional as it reminded me so much of playing games like this with friends at university. Something I never get to do now and really miss. Probably why I enjoy the content team Eurogamer puts out so much. Other highlights are, the songs (of course), the jokes (haha, spider lads) and Johnny’s never ending battle with gravity. Bring on Bloodborne.

It was super fun watching you guys play this game in its entirety and listen to your commentary. Also, don't worry Johnny one day you'll conquer gravity.

You did it. Praise the S... no. Praise Sir Butts, her guardian controllers, and of course Sif, who is and forever will be a lovely girl.

Aoife, as a true lover of both OXBOX and OXTRA's content and indeed, their people - *I* feel qualified to say that it *WAS* a big shock that Luke was better at Dark Soul's than you - yourself, and Johnny are ruthless and savage in just general life approaches. Luke is not. His ability to utterly devastate the final boss in the manner in which he did leads me to believe THEY ARE ALL LIVING A LIE. THEY DON'T LIVE LIKE THAT JOHNNY. THEY DON'T. IT'S NOT POSSIBLE TO BE THAT EFFICIENT AND DEADLY IN COMBAT AND NOT HAVE SWEARY, DIRTY, INNUENDO-Y BONES IN YOUR BODY. ...they're all. Living. LIES. ....except Jane. Don't....please don't show any of that to Jane >.<

Love you guys that was amazing!!! Thanks for the ride, I joined this channel 4 weeks into your Dark Souls and I 100% plan to stay. also I know it's really early to suggest but are you considering dark souls 3 after bloodborne? I would very much enjoy a full year of souls-borne games from the two of you and DS3 is my favorite, plus Johnny has never played it.
Grelzar (4 months ago)
Oof I binge watched all of this in a week, and I LOVED seeing their progress. This series was absolutely wonderful, thanks Johnny and Aoife!
Sarah (4 months ago)
I can't believe the journey's over. I can honestly say, I've never felt even a sliver of interest for dark souls. But with you guys and Ser Butts? It was an iconic journey, that I wouldn't have wanted to miss for the world. Thank you for making mondays worthwhile. Thanks for the songs, the memes, the laughs. We've all been changed and I boldly claim: for the better. Looking forward to what comes next, especially of it's bloodborne <3

Looking forward to your continued adult gameyadventures, with soundtrack. Butts!

In any souls game you make it so much harder if you are backing away from the boss 1 because the almost always have double your reach 2 because most of the time they have what I like to call blind spots where if you dodge either left or right (depending on the swing) you'll get out of the way and 3 because you can't time parrys if your changing the time when the actual attack hits your shield Fun fact this is why they nerfed shields in ds2 and almost got completely rid of them in blood borne because people would just hide behind them and turn the fights into battles of attrition

This has been a great series. Thanks for the all these hours of entertainement. Can't wait to see you play through Bloodborne!

Congratulations on completing DARK SOULS! What a ride. Sad to see the series end but excited to see something new. Prepare for sexual subtexts, swearing, signing, maybe a few "C" bombs and it is defiantly safe to say more butt stuff. ;)

Johnny just made up for every silly mistake he's made this entire series. Kalameet is no joke, my friend.

I never could put into words why Dark souls feels awesome to play. There are the cliche descriptions of _finally reaching the next bonfire with a sliver of health and no estus_ and the rush after beating a boss on the 30th try but those don't explain exactly why it was an awesome game for me yet a lot of people don't really like it. Until I read about something called 'Flow' (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_(psychology) ) or colloquially called _'getting in the zone'._ To paraphrase the wiki, to get into the flow or zone, the activity must have *a)* a clear goal (it sounds odd that a game series so convoluted as DS has a clear goal, but at it's core DS is all about killing anything that moves, working your way through a level and killing the boss before doing all that again till the biggest baddie in the end, just like the side scrolling games of old); *b)* immediate feedback (get into the right position and you get a critical attack, mess up and you die. But you know what you did wrong and try to avoid it next time, the game rarely feels unfair. _Except those times the game engine screws us_ ); *c)* a balance between the perceived skill level of the player and perceived difficulty of the challenge (it's only fun when it's challenging and yet feels like we have a fair shot at it. If the game is just too hard and unplayable, it's not fun. If the game is far too easy, it's boring. Hence the saying that DS is not _hard_ but it is *punishing* .) I think DS games get _Flow_ right and that's why they feel amazing to play and that is why Johhny changed his mind about doing another soulslike playthrough. But I might be talking out of my ass, I never was a psychology student. But I'm fucking glad they want to play BB next, it's not just any game, Bloodborne is fucking art and Miyazaki's masterpiece along with Dark Souls. When games are eventually studied in universities as art, Bloodborne will be there in the curriculum. Please play BB guys.

It has been great fun to follow you through the slightly hostile, inhospitable land of never ending buttocks and assholes. Love you guys and everything you do. This series has been especially fun to watch. Can't wait to see what tomfoolery you come up with next!

Congrats guys! Johnny, I admired your restraint on the OxTra stream, very admirable ;) Needless to say Aoife and Luke have very different fighting styles! I've really enjoyed this stream, it's become a Monday staple these last few months (around the same time I started watching Eurogamer in fact, so the two are synonymous in my mind). Bring on the Bloodborne! If possible I like Bloodborne even more than Dark Souls so I'm definitely looking forward to it :D A toast, to the future adventures of Dick Kickins as he battles blood, plague and the Old Ones in Yharnam!
Auspicious Asparagus (4 months ago)
Wow, what a journey! I genuinely felt a greater sense of catharsis when you guys beat the game than when I did. Bravo! Time to get a PS4 + Bloodbourne and play it through before you start the next Let's Play. Also, I'd pay _at least_ 70,000 souls for that album.

I wish you both would’ve used all of those souls you had, it probably would’ve been nearly 200,000 souls. However, I don’t blame you both. Using multiple items at once was of the few things changed in the remastered edition.
Brock Sisson (4 months ago)
I'm glad to have finally caught up, been bingewatching these episodes for the past while. You two have such great chemistry. Leaving this comment before starting this final episode but i'd love to see you 2 play Until Dawn. Also, I hope Stardew Valley comes back this weekend, we need to see what's going on on Butts farm.

Oh! Oh! I have an idea for what weapon to use during Bloodborne! How about the Saw Spear? It's basic attacks are similar to the Saw Cleaver, but it's transformed attacks give you some nice mid-range horizontal slash attacks (compared to the Saw Cleaver's vertical attacks while transformed). So it's transformed state allows some decent crowd control. It also deals serrated damage in both forms, unlike the Saw Cleaver, and it gets an R2 thrust attack for some distance poking. I switched from the Cleaver to the Spear and honestly love it. Though, of course, that doesn't mean either of you will love it. Which is fine, this is just my suggestion. As always, it's best to try out a few different weapons and figure out which one you're both comfortable with. Anyway, it's been a great adventure watching you two go through Dark Souls. The laughs, the struggles, the joy, the laughs again. You two are great and I'm so very happy I found this channel.

rush for dlc whirlgig saw or boomhammer - prob. not best but most entertaining weapons (although i find them to be very strong, beat orphan with those :D)
Cliff Evans (4 months ago)
Three things: 1) I am surprised it took you twenty minutes to get to the "royal wood" joke. "Majestic and infested with wolverines" made up for it. 2) It really was a nice touch, after all the trouble one black knight gave Johnny in the first couple of episodes, to see him swatting them away like distractions on the run up to the boss door in this episode. 3) I enjoy Oxbox/Oxtra, family-friendliness and all, but the gleefully profane approach you take, plus the easy chemistry and tangents into the musical and absurd are what made this Let's Play the first thing I'd watch Monday evenings when I got home from work. Thanks so much for hours of entertainment.
AndyB9 (4 months ago)
Watched this series periodically, mainly because I wanted to see a genuine new player having a go at this game. Really interesting choice of weapon; Probably the reason it took you so many retries to defeat certain bosses. If you are going to play again, I'd urge you to 2-hand your weapons. It plays very differently as you'd have to rely more on dodging. Maybe try NG+. I know I fell in love with this game on NG+3, cause this is when I had honed in on my skills and preferred play-style, thanks to better access to resources, which allows for easier experimentation...
zanychelly (4 months ago)
What to do with Artorias soul?! 1 - You could consume it, to gain a bunch of souls. 2 - infuse a 10+ Sword with it to get a soul weapon, like with any other boss souls in the game. For example, the weapon you guys play can be infused with Priscyla’s soul...
Drew Worth (4 months ago)
Johnny and Aoife, let me just thank you two for such an amazing series. It gave me the courage to finally start my own Dark Souls run (one Bell of Awakening down say whaaaat). It also provided endless entertainment, such as Johnny's many defeats at the hands of gravity and Aoife's savagery. And let us not forget the many Dark Souls songs ad libbed by the two of you. Raise a pint to Ser Butts, ladies and gents. In fact, have a double tickle.

Hades Times (4 months ago)
I'm not trying to be that guy or anything. But Dark Souls is a rated M game, at least in the US. So shouldn't only people 17 or older be watching a Let's Play anyway. So family friendly seems to have gone out the window at the off. Is it that different in England? Just curious...
Chaoslord48 (4 months ago)
okay, first off, Aoifes Lena Lamont impersonation is spot on and I love it. Secondly; as much as I agree with the statement that she was an actress who was fully in charge of her career and was ahead of her time, it does not excuse her from forcing Kathy Selden into a binding contract where she has to dub Lamonts voice in movies while getting zero credit or compensation. That is just exploitation.
Giulian Vaz (4 months ago)
You two made my working hours more fun with this series, so, thanks! Always satisfying to see the transformation of players during DS, because it was the same with me. I remember doing a huge mess from the beginning until Undead Parish in my first playthrough, so i restarted and went up to nag a friend of mine expert in the game to get many information as possible, which caused no effect either. Delve straight in and feel the experience is what matters most in the end. I didn't knew shit and end up with a platinum trophy, which i polish once in a week in my imaginations.
Calum Beattie (4 months ago)
For Bloodborn weapons- it's not one you can start with, but Ludwigs Holy Blade (whose two forms are a one handed sword and a greatsword) is one that I really enjoyed using. It's a nice mix of swift light attacks and really heavy ones and it works really nice if you level both Strength and Dexterity.
INFERNODNB (3 months ago)
the two handed axe for a large portion is the best. but 100% ludwigs holy blade is the best weapon. no doubt.

no, thank YOU guys! it’s been a truly wonderful time. also bloodborne, bloodborne, bloodborne! (i had never got the hype around the fromsoftware games. i actually own bloodborne but haven’t put much time into it because, meh, i died so much to the villagers round the bonfire at the start. and just gave up. but 23 eps of this have made feel all inspired and excited and i feel like i’ve now got a… well… feel for these types of games. so, yeah, i’m going to play along with you. ‘run away!’)
Adrian Salvatore (4 months ago)
I am really gonna miss this series, it has gotten me through some stressful times and had me excited every week, thank you guys for that. P.S. Can't wait for you're next series, I know with you two it'll be fantastic. P.P.S. I went and watched the oxextra stream and there are points in it, like with the maiden hood, that you can see Johnny squirming not to say anything which personally made it funnier.

I could watch you two play anything. I've laughed so hard during every episode and I believe you are the embodiment of fun. Whatever game you go on to next, know that I'll always make sure to tune in and support this superb content you guys continue to make. Stay awesome Aoife and Johnny. :)

The Kirkhammer can be bought right after you beat the first boss in Bloodborne so it is a possible early weapon. Your parry attacks scale with the Skill stat so the can is great for that. YAY Bloodborne!! a game I can have tips for!

Ah Johnny Gravityni strikes again one last time. It's been a pleasure to watch you two play Dark Souls (so I don't have to). Btw your buddy Gough is blind (or at the very least his sight is impaired) and he's one of the Four Knights of Gwyn (alongside Ornstein, Artorias and Lord's Blade Ciaran aka the one you gave Artorias' Soul)
Tibi_Lares (4 months ago)
Also while I probably would enjoy watching you two play Bloodborne I'm afraid I won't watch it because I want to play it first myself (although you two are the reason that got me over to giving it a try, so cheers to you).
