    It is a reference to an emote gesture from the game Dark Souls. You join the covenant called the Warriors of Sunlight with the intention of helping players along with advancing in the game (go through areas with them, fight bosses). Your character glows golden and you get a 'praise the sun' gesture wherein you do a glorious little V with your arms and get on your tiptoes. It is also in reference to Solaire of Astora, who is a potential friend to you throughout the game and can induct you into the covenant. Quite literally, Solaire is one of your ONLY true friends. He's a fan favorite, but I kind of love all the NPCs from Dark Souls.

    Also some of the forum goers are well aware that I adore Dark Souls and Solaire. I think they do it to draw me out of hiding.

    I just picked up the Prepare to Die edition to see what all the fuss is about.

    Just for you, Haern. Just for you.

    Any chance we can all pile on Skype or a livestream? I just love listening to someone's first Dark Souls experience.

    As a heads up, you should download a popular mod called DSFix and then get a controller. The PC port was done very quickly and the mouse controls are pretty wretched. I play on the PS3 due to having a background with Demon's Souls. You won't find me hunting the Oolacile Township on PC!

    PRAISE THE SUN!

    Also, I concur with Haern on the Knife of Dunwall today. Definitely going to pick it up to see what it was like from a certain character's perspective. A certain character that didn't get a lot of face time and was a pretty great character.

    I dunno. When I played it last I just had to kill ALL THE PEOPLE.

    I was pacifist to guards and such unless they were taking advantage of someone. Targets were generally killed unless the non-lethal way was a fate worse than death like the corrupt first target being banished.

    Corvo so mad. So mad.

  • NatasyaNatasya Member Posts: 18
    I totally promise I didn't ruin Dark Souls by trying to kill Solaire first thing, and I also didn't rage so hard half-way through that I took it back and got Dead Space 2. :(

    Also this was when I was 8 months pregnant and couldn't play either one in anymore because it could have sent me into early labors?! XD awkward

    Trying to rp it out. Disgraced cop isn't gonna kill other cops while trying to clear his name so much. No problem blasting some thugs though!

    I disagree. I was all up on the revenge train. Just so happens that anyone in my way became a target >_>

    Some of the challenge run stuff is really hilarious. Like so:

    I felt the game tugging me in both directions; sometimes, it really fleshed out the NPC, trying to humanize them. Other times, I felt like it was all "These are the people keeping her locked up! These are the murderers. These are the people slandering your name!" I never could keep up one of the two paths, violence or pacifism. But when I killed, it felt justified.

    I'm wary of a trap. I have not played far in at all, but having played Spec Ops: The Line? No, no, no, no. No more killing NPCs for no reason. T_T

    Academically, Spec Ops was fascinating. I don't know if its message will be properly understood by the people who it's most pertinent to, but I really liked the idea of taking everything everyone is used to doing in a videogame (Stomping boxes, stealing items, shootan everyone) and pointing out "Hey. You are being a horrible person doing horrible things, you know that?"

    Unrelated to above game talk, but Injustice: Gods Among Us came out today. Anyone else playing it?

    Ahmg yes. Just beat the story mode. I'm a huuuuge fan of Mortal Kombat, and I absolutely love everything about the DC universe, so I'm pretty sure this game just took 'favorite game ever' status. I've had my dorm door open all day and have been pulling random residents of mine in left and right that walk by to play a few rounds.

    I haven't played many recent Mortal Kombat games, but I did play MK9 and thought NetherRealm did a great job. And I read DC comics religiously, so I've been super excited about Injustice. You already beat story mode? About how long did that take? I've only played the beginning Batman stages, then played other challenge modes to work on getting better with combos. But from what I've seen so far, I love it!!

    I picked up Dark Souls earlier today. I died in the tutorial, which was awesome.

    Also, I rolled a Wanderer and hit the... I don't know his name, the first NPC you meet after you get out of the tutorial, by the bonfire? Well, his reaction was funny, so I kept hitting him. Now he attacks me forever and I can't make him stop, so I think I just doomed my little level 6 character.

    I'm also cracking up at how REGULAR SKELETONS are legitimately dangerous to me.

    I dunno, Bioshock Infinite is pretty fantastic right now, and so delightfully racist charged.  Im absolutely loving it.

    Is Dark Souls the one where you can leave (completely trollish) messages on the walls for people? Stuff like "VERILY THE WAY YONDER IS CLEAR, PROCEED!" right before a pack of goblins or whatever is due to pop out?
    The Divine voice of Razmael echoes in your head, "God of imps."
    Eugenides says to you, "Imp, Are you sure you were not born a Troll?"
    The Divine voice of Arion echoes in your head, "Every time I try to punish you for being so flippant, I find Myself laughing instead."

    It is amazing as a deconstruction of the shooter genre.    I went in not really knowing that and it just blew me away.  Especially reading some of the stuff people have written up/theorized after the fact.   Just kind of was a "Daaaamn" moment in making me realize how we've come to  enjoy and play games. 

    Edit: I say this as I am running through the Dishonored DLC killing people.
