Vaati. I wrote that loooong time ago on other videos of yours. Sadly I got no answer to this day. I love your lore videos from every fromsoftware-game. I really do. I keep going on to watch it all in english. But I'm from Germany and sometimes it's hard to follow for me. Is there a chance for German subtitles in the future? You need a guy for that? I tried other lore videos from German guys. But... Really no chance against your voice, the background music and the satisfaction about the dramatic vibes from software games. You fits the most. It's a fact. Thank you 4 everything. German subtitles would be perfection to your videos for me.

Could you move the footer text up a bit next time? Trying to read the footer notes but it goes by quickly, and the video nav bar covers it up while paused, so you end up needing to rewind a good 10s back, read a bit, rewind again, etc. Greta video though.

I’m fairly certain Saint Urbain mentions that miracles where around before. So the church was around during the first scourge. Frankly from what you describe spells are bad so people probably shouldn’t use them.

Just occurred to me that Ludleth in ds3 is the dark souls version of the monumentals. The backstory is thematically identical and nearly everything in demons souls made its way into dark souls almost as if it's a pilot episode of a tv show. This reminded me that the monumentals come off as being stoic heroes but were largely responsible for the problems in the world, which they've since tried to solve out of guilt. Ludleth comes from a similarly advanced culture in terms of using souls and is the only one of the lords of cinder that accepts their responsibility but mostly out of guilt. I wish I had payed attention to actual history instead of this

A great video as always. But I must say I realise that these most recent "all lore in one video - explained"-videos contain a lot of questions answered rather directly. Of course it is still fascinating, entertaining and easy to listen as always but i would find it easier without these questions that interrupt the fluentliness somehow.

Wish you could use your magic and explain the story in Demon’s Souls like you did with the “Bloodborne story explained”. That’s by far my most favorite video you’ve ever made! I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve listened to it. Booodborne has a special place in my heart. I’d really like to listen the story of Demon’s Souls in that exact way. What is/why videos are great don’t get me wrong but it explains mechanics more than the story itself

Honestly, this is a really superficial view of Demon's Souls' lore. For example, taking the prologue at face value and the '2nd Day' thing as gospel is incongruent with the evidence discovered through playing the game. We know that the prologue is mankind's naive/inaccurate belief and that the 'God' of Demon's Souls is actually the Old One from the Talisman of Beasts item description: "An old wooden amulet resembling the Old One. It can utilize both miracles and spells. The symbol of God was nothing more than the Image of the Old One." And also from Freke's dialogue: "Do not pay attention to them if they speak poorly of me and my magic. Prayer is for the foolish, quaint, and soon-to-be dead. And heaven forbid the day you find out what their so-called God really is…". Basically, the Old One is the source of Soul Arts, and using them awakens it (not some divine punishment from God). You can almost consider the use of Soul Arts to be akin to praying to the Old One. It's also no secret that Miyazaki draws a lot of inspiration from Lovecraft and there are a lot of parallels between the Old One and Azathoth; a slumbering elder god that rests atop the Black Throne who dreamed reality into existence and once awoken will devour it.

Been watching this channel ever since I was 12, my best friend bought me the Dark Souls: Prepare to die edition Box as a surprise for my birthday and we were completely engulfed in the theme and gameplay of it all. We took turns playing whenever we had difficulties or were burned out and we just enjoyed it. I was very curious about the Lore and I found this channel. I know you wont be able to see this comment, but I just wanna thank you for the memories. I'm 20 now and you're my favorite channel on youtube. You never disappoint man, Godbless always.

I look forward for more expansion on the Demon's Souls lore. This has given me more insight into the concepts going into the game's themes. I have a yearning for the strangeness that this game has but was lost in the growing focus of combat in later releases. I feel that some humanity was lost in later Souls games. Even in my beloved Dark Souls.

Been watching this channel almost everyday since your first Demon's Souls videos. I loved the games since 2010 but your videos make me love my favorite game franchise even more. Thank you for all your hardwork and dedication to studying and deciphering the lore of these games. You , along with the Souls series as a whole have taught me a lot about life through a video game and have gotten me through some of the hardest times in youth and young adult years.

It sort of makes sense that sorceries in this world are more akin to witchcraft than enlightenment. Sorceries are super OP compared to miracles. Sorcery also can keep us from truly advancing in experience because it's so easy to just stand back and shoot enemies. Well look at that, the Souls series even has ludo-lore.
