Gah. introductions, how brilliant - these always go swimmingly with me; so excuse any... hiccups or social protocols I skip over in this introduction. Another thing; my spelling is terrible, its due to a head injury I sustained whilst I was younger, I have a minor case of dyslexia.
Alright well, now that that's out of the way; I'm a Dark souls fan (who would have guessed) I guess I'll cover why I like this game so much first. I'm going to be frank; the first thing that drawed me to Dark souls was the art style; as a kid I grew up reading lord of the rings, and the surreal, high-fantasy eldritch style of the game gave it a massive draw to me personally.
The second thing that attracted me was the difficulty; I've always been competitive, but I was never a person for online gaming, but being able to compete AGAINST the game sounded like an angel singing from heaven. I had always been a fan of dungeon crawler games, although I enjoyed oblivion whenever it came out, it always felt too easy and never had any risk to it.
Another thing that grabbed me was the story; I had always been fed my games story via a narrow straw; but the idea of leaving the story to the gamer is such a thing of genius! ... mad genius. Such as believing who is the first born, was Lord Gwyn REALLY a bad guy, etc etc.
The final thing; " Prepare to die! " I originally thought that was a threat; but I soon realized it was a piece of advice; the game taught me how to beat the bosses via repetition and actually taking my time to go onto the wiki and trying to do research, I can understand how some people would find that unappealing, I personally find it very rewarding.
Alright, onto the boring stuff. About me? I've never really gone by my own name, hell, at some points I forget it. Maybe I'm just another hollow? Eh, never really liked being uninsane anyway. Enough of that banter? Alright. Some information about me, eh?
" If I didn't know any better, I'd say you had feelings for me...oh,dear...please forget I said that... "
I'm irish, I'm part Russian, from my grandmothers side, I was born in dublin and raised there until I was about four, then I moved to glengormley. I spent most of my childhood playing games or taking my bikes and computers apart, I was never really interested in girls or blokes. I was a quiet kid, I spent alot of my time with my legs crossed in a corner thinking.
Personally, I see myself as someone who, when is bent on something, will never stop, will never relent or will ever stop until that task is completed (hence why I like Dark souls so much)
I spent about a year of my life in the armed forces, the marines, as a rifleman, I enjoyed it, like being a big part of a family, until I took an injury and was unable to serve anymore.
I hope I'm a good part of the community.
Have a good day, and remember;
Your happiness is your own.
