If you’ve never seen any videos on Youtube of fainting goats… then you need to stop what you’re doing and queue up a couple immediately, especially if you’re feeling down.

Dark Souls is a pretty difficult series. It’s incredibly rewarding to fight a tough boss and walk away victorious, but each triumph is proceeded by dozens of failed attempts and poorly implemented strategies. Bosses often have elemental attacks, or elemental weapons, so it’s sometimes necessary to wear different gear to counter whatever is being thrown your way. As a result, you frequently end up standing next the save point as you debate the advantages and disadvantages of your armor and weapons in a specific boss fight. I’ve fought bosses while wearing a full set of heavy armor, and I’ve fought bosses wearing nothing but a loincloth.

Whatever it takes to win, you know?
