There is a magnificent game theory out there that states in Dark Souls 3 our character is a member of, The Black Hand- with compelling evidence for this. This got me thinking if we have some important connection that our character has to the world in Dark souls 1.
‘He was a real man who wore his hair long and celebrated flowers on his jeans.’
It’s no secret that I love the Dark souls series. The in-depth and story telling (for me) is some of the best in any media. This game makes you work for the story and when you do that it gives you something very rewarding.
So let me start by saying that I used to love Star Wars. Space wizards with laser swords!? I had no chance to resist. From the moment I watched ‘A new hope’ with my Granddad I was hocked. I’d wear my dressing gown and jump round my room holding a torch pretending I was fighting the evil empire.
I love old movies. There was a charm about them, a charm that came from not having every little thing explained. We celebrate the concept of a film that leaves information out—all the while, we route for another film for the anthology to tell us everything about the universe we are watching.
Over the last few years we have seen the phrase, ‘toxic masculinity’ being used more and more. While the majority of the time this is used to put down men and blame the patriarchy for most of the issues women face in the modern western world; there is actually a massive issue here and it is going largely ignored.
