DARK SOULS 2 SPECIAL - ‘BETA MAX’

[APPROVED BY NAMCO BANDAI]

*~Download the MP3 here~*

Paddy played the Play Expo demo in Manchester last Saturday afternoon.

CJ played the Beta on Saturday evening. 

A podcast we honestly didn’t know if we’d ever get to post, beyond it being some kind of ‘lost tapes’ when Dark Souls 2 finally comes out. we just had to talk about stuff, HAD TO.

But we spoke with Namco Bandai, who were fabulous, and gave us permission to post the above podcast. As is detailed on the podcast itself, the legal gubbins …

“REPRESENTATIVES OF NAMCO BANDAI ARE *FULLY AWARE* OF THIS PODCAST BEING UPLOADED. IF ANYONE FROM FROM SOFTWARE OR NAMCO BANDAI HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT US AT TWINHUMANITIESPODCAST-AT-GMAIL.COM”

Oh and Paddy got to see the statue that’s coming in the Special Edition of Dark Souls 2, and apparently it’s a belter.

Anyway, have a listen, if you will. 

We compare the demo’s, their features, new mechanics and probably the odd tiny spoiler bit as we detail each adventure and get very excited indeed.

If you fancy going in cold to the second round of the beta, or the final game, i’d recommend skipping this one. If you’re curious, hit play and please, please enjoy it.

This was a blast :D

TWIN HUMANITIES DARK SOULS PODCAST SPECIAL!

"James & The Giant Pitch"

MP3. iTunes. Youtube above!

..


After a little time away we’re pitching our tent firmly in a discussion about Dark Souls with James Carter from the brilliant Cane & Rinse.

We have a bit about Souls in general, then leap into tons of Dark Souls 2 news, opinions and rumours that have been boinging deliciously along the internet superhighway these last few weeks.

..

Hoping you enjoy, this was both a blast to do and a real pleasure to be part of.

Videogamer’s Matt Lees gives his impressions of Dark Souls 2, detailing the changes and intricacies, as well as sharing tons of excitement for next year’s release.

Matt’s one of my favourite gaming critics, and if you’re a fan of Dark Souls you flat out have to watch his ‘Pants Man’ playthrough of the game. Most streams were a couple of hours long, but in the final episodes Matt stayed for nearly FOUR HOURS to finish it. With a few quirks, too ;)

Anyway, consider the above your taster, then delve into more of the output by Matt - and Videogamer for that matter, which I also proper bloody love.

So Paddy and I did the Twin Humanities Dark Souls Podcast, which we finished a couple of weeks ago. 

Starting off with an uneasy title of Polynauts Dark Souls Podcast .. or .. er.. PadCoft [O_o] .. we didn’t know what we were doing and certainly didn’t have much of an agenda other than discussing the game and having a bit of a laugh with it.

See, Paddy played Demon’s Souls, wasn’t keen on it and left it alone. Yonks later, prompted by the fact I wouldn’t shut up about how tops it is, he started it again. This time the king of orange clicked with it massively and adored it.

In the above podcast we explore his first forays into Dark Souls, plus my long term levels of smitten for the game.

Hopefully it entertains a little along the way. maybe we get a bit better at it as things go on. regardless, I hope you’ll enjoy it - and i’ll be sure to post a new episode up every few days.

A NEW TUMBLR GAMING VENTURE BY MY FRIEND PADDY & I .. plus a little insight into what i’ve been up to in the times when i’ve left Tumblr alone!

Hiya *^-^*
Paddy & I met around a year ago on what was then ‘Polygon At The Verge’, started chatting amongst a group of great folks and friendships were formed.
As much as I love gaming , I hadn’t really been part of a gaming forum before, preferring to nerd out on Tumblr whenever I felt the need to wax lyrical about games, along with books, comics, telly, movies - the good stuff.

Mainly that involved a lot of Dark Souls, my first article over there was a Souls piece as well, ‘Demon’s Souls 2 Vs Dark Souls 2’. Elsewhere I started up a thread to talk about the game, for those who loved it to share their adventures, as well as a place where those curious about the game could read entertaining tales and hopefully be tempted enough to buy it. As/when/if they did, whenever they were stuck folks could pitch in with advice, bro-op and the suchlike. 
Paddy had played Demon’s Souls and didn’t click with it. He then returned to it, loved it and joined in the conversations. At the start of 2013 he bought Dark Souls and we thought it would be fun to do a podcast, he new to the game, me somewhat more experienced - and hopefully as enthusiasms collide on either end, a decent bit of conversation. 
At times this veered off into ‘off-cuts’, which would contain chats on the latest games, what we’d been playing and whatever guff boinged into the moment. Usually it would be us veering off course during the podcast, and then slicing the anomaly out and letting it stand on its own two feet. 

Hopefully the Tumblr is the next step in exploring that level of geek a little further, whilst tapping into the amazing community here and reblogging whatever piques our interest. On my own Tumblr I’ve some fantastic people posting, with special admiration for the fantastic FuckYeahPraiseTheSun, which has always amazed me within quality, consistency and how much it stoked the fires of my love for the Souls titles.

Beyond that I’ve become a huge fan of Podcasts, with the likes of Midnight Resistance, Joypod, Cane & Rinse and Videogamer providing fantastic inspiration. I’m in awe of those folks, so, if you’ve not ventured forth, I implore you to do so. And if you forget, i’ll be doing a post on each in the coming weeks I reckon. 
Anyway, that’s my first blurb, hopefully Pad will be along to offer a bit of insight later as well.

Coming up soon - our E3 predictions chat. Paddy’s video blog and review for The Last Of Us, we’ll start posting the Dark Souls podcasts - and whatever spins out of the crazy L.A. shenanigans that start today.
Ta for reading. Hope you enjoy the blog.  *^-^*

My friend Paddy and I have been doing a Twin Humanities Dark Souls podcast for a little while now, one which twirled out into talking about games in general, and now a TWIN HUMANITIES Tumblr.
I have some ace folks I follow on here, whom I hope will have a look over at the Twin Humanities page as well. The hope is to make the new blog wonderfully entertaining with cool written bits, neat reblogs and quirk, plus the written articles I post on PlusXP and Paddy has over at MKGaming too.
If you fancy it i’m on Twitter at @CoffeeJezus and the Padster is @PaddyStardust.
Cheeeaaahz.

Fabulous new song - can’t wait for the new album! 

Butch Walker - the world’s greatest musician - covering The Rolling Stones ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ [with friends!] at Stonesfest. 

Sheer fucking musical bliss taste. 

Everyone should do this at least once in their day.
