I resolved to buy fewer games in the new year in order that I could spend less of my free time feeling obligated to play games in general and what did I do? I decided that I should finally beat Dark Souls and then Dark Souls II in preparation for Dark Souls III.
What the actual fuck?
I am however enjoying it and after 30 or so hours on this playthrough I think I finally get most of it. I spent most of last night grinding souls in order to buy materials to upgrade a new armor set so I think that qualifies.
Also, I beat Ornstein and Smough. Praise the sun!
