Welcome to In The Dark, a stream show following Scholarly Gamers MrCreteture and Cronos53 as they venture through the Dark Souls game series by FromSoftware.
Each week, these two will test their mettle by digging into the lore, gameplay, and challenge this series has become famous for. Josh (MrCreteture) made his way through Bloodborne with the help of Steve (Cronos53) and decided to continue through the rest of the games as a blind playthrough (having never played them before), starting with the most controversial game of them all, Dark Souls II. Each episode will be broken up between two parts every week, showing most of the highlights and multiplayer sessions of the stream. If you’d like to see more, be sure to catch them live every Monday at 9:30 PM EST for the full 2 hour stream sessions.
This week on In The Dark:
Josh continues on his first journey through Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin. Part 1 saw our unlucky team taking on the Pursuer (the right way) and opening some doors with the Soldier’s Key. After finishing off the Forest of the Fallen Giants they headed towards Heide’s Tower of Flame, with Josh leading the way. In this part, they tackle The Old Dragonslayer in the Cathedral of Blue, but not before nearly getting crushed by dragons. They also manage to sneak in the final boss of Heide’s Tower of Flame, the Dragonrider. Next up, it’s time to find out how well Josh can do on his own while he ventures towards No-Man’s Wharf, just after talking with a lovely cleric sitting by the bonfire.
The Scholarly Gamers Dark Souls II Stream-Through with MrCreteture and Cronos53 goes live every Monday at 9:30 PM EST.
If you can’t catch it live, be sure to check our YouTube or this site every Tuesday and Thursday for the episodes.
