    I don’t think it gets talked about much, but the voice acting in the Souls games is really great. That “Die! Die! Die!” That Devin says could’ve been generic screaming but the VA turned into a much more menacing threat, like an executioner raising the axe. Really drives the fanaticism home

      Elden Ring's English language voice cast is an enormous step up from mediocrity of FromSoft's earlier localizations. I still wonder if the VAs for Darksouls 1 even had access to proper microphones.

      @Maverick Titan Idk wtf you're on about lmao. There was never any English "localization" for the voice acting. It's always been in English. FromSoft has used the same VA agency for nearly their entire Souls catalogue, and it's always been outstanding in every entry.

    To tell the truth, though I know Ranni's ending will be the last ending explained, I would still love to see Goldmask's storyline and the Golden Order Fundamentalists rendered in Prepare to Cry.
    Brother Corhyn's blind faith and Goldmask's struggle against a Golden Order that won't change until his death both come together to tell a tragic story.

    • cdp124
      cdp124 Tháng trước +20

      @Hevno think about it from the perspective of the tarnished: guy wearing a former friend's armor shows up and kills the woman that had helped you realize the plight of those that live in death, as well as being a companion to you all game.

    • Nines :3
      Nines :3 Tháng trước +23

      @Hevno D twins are fanatics, they were rejected by all but golden order so they defend the views of golden order like fanatics would by executions and crucifixions.
      People who live in death are not even bad, they were simple villagers or nobles that were burried in the roots of the tree, hoping to be reincarnated one day, it's not their fault that the tree roots were corrupted by Godwyn's corpse.
      Fault lies with Golden order taking the rune of death out of the Elden Ring, meanwhile D brothers see people who can't die and blame them instead of the order that caused them to exist in the first place.

    • Hevno
      Hevno Tháng trước +11

      @Nines :3
      the ppl were already living and reincarnating without an issue even after the rune of death was removed, like you said it is not their fault that they were corrupted by poor godwyns death roots, but it is also not godwyns fault nor the golden order, if you want to blame someone for why they came to be it would be the vile wench ranni for doing what she did and causing all this torment.
      Those living in death are unnatural they are not living yet they are not dead their existence is simply Pain (I am very sure those wandering skeletons are not happy).
      Since they can no longer reincarnat through the erdtree the golden order seem to just want to put them down and give them a true death.
      That is why I defend the twins unless you and the undead all across the land were happily making love to each other I am sure you noticed all of them (save for fia) are aggressive and dangerous and the twins and those like them work to put an end to the damage caused by ranni

      VNclip videos are just faster. If you decide to spend time going through item descriptions and NPC dialogue, you'd be able to piece it together yourself. it just takes time, but if you don't have that time or just have things you'd rather spend your time on, that's why VNclip videos exist.

    The detail of the player character using different weapons and spells related to death throughout their journey in the video is incredible. It's as if they're examining, studying, exploring the different forms of death, as a Death Philosopher.

    • Roman von ungern-sternberg
      Roman von ungern-sternberg 2 tháng trước +27

      I wish this game let you have real effects on game play from which side you pick like what was shown around 35:00 by siding with those of living death you had them come out of sources of it to aid you and maybe you spread it as you went on etc.

    • Han Solo (but I'm dead)
      Han Solo (but I'm dead) 2 tháng trước +21

      ​@Roman von ungern-sternberg I understand why you'd want an in-game effect, but as a matter-of-fact, this is an RPG. It lets you have fun making a build and stylizing it with a story. Yes, having the dead enemies not attack you much later in the game as you align yourself with them is interesting, but it would make the gameplay restricting. You're supposed to help create the story too, don't let the game do all the heavy lifting in the department of imagination.

    • Roman von ungern-sternberg
      Roman von ungern-sternberg 2 tháng trước +11

      @Han Solo (but I'm dead) the r in rpg stands for roll your roll effects the world, I felt this way back in dark souls as well. How much replay value would it add if your choices had real consequences? Both relatively instant ones like that faction aiding you and long term ones like the world being effected by your last play through helping one side? I know Iam not crazy when I talk about this since I swear a dynamic world reacting to your choices used to be fairly common.
      I mean even bioshock had a little of this, I never felt like a better person than when I spared a woman who looked after my daughter and got her to second guess the Karen cult leader who tried to take full custody. She couldn’t call off “the family” and their bushwhack but she sent me some drones for back up and warned me. Little things like that really take things to another level.

    • Pedro Miret
      Pedro Miret 2 tháng trước +5

      @Roman von ungern-sternberg Beyond how mind breakingly complicated it would be to do a world with this level of detail be everchanging in regards of the player completing certain quests...
      There is an issue with map management, quest overlap and such.
      If you change the world due to this quest, then you have to do the same for that of the age of frenzied flame, age of stars and such. You can do many of these at a time, and all of that going on would be a bit of a mess.
      That and Deathroot is an essentially slow burning effect. It need not be automatic.

      But as with all FromSoft games, the dev's had to cut a fair share when the release-date _death'line_ approached. 😏

      I don't have much time to play, and I've always been far more interested in the lore and world of From games so combat has been a huge struggle (and not one I really enjoy). But I took down Margit on the first try thanks to Rogier. Then he appears at the round table basically bedridden, rambling, infected and dying and it was such a sad thing to see, even if he seemed happy to see me

Tremendous props to everyone who works on these. It's absolutely beautiful to watch and I am enraptured by these videos. I am beyond excited to see the Age of Stars ending video when it comes out! Love your videos as always Vaati

    During my playthrough I found Fia's story the most compelling. The last few scenes with her were so emotive compared to most interactions in the game.

    You've always been a bonfire for this community. Maybe even *the* Bonfire, and it's so fitting that your works now include so many more others that have a love for these twisted little worlds
    and their tragic and heroic characters. Thanks for all the years Vaati and for stoking the flames of lore for both new and old members of the audience. Your recent uploads feel like a revitalization and it'll be great to see what you all do with the DLC.
    Good shit.

      @Matteo Passi you are in the game community
      No matter what do you say they are going to say that you are right despite being WRONG
      he is a reskin
      Him and his sister
      Both are and they do all the same things
      A mili different in color or move doesn't make him unique or different nor "nOt A rEsKiN"
      And also Gransax is a reskin

      @Menou Ba You said it yourself, they are brother and sister, it's normal they look alike, and again, it's not a reskin, or at least, not a bad one. Do you want an example of a reskin? The Blue Smelter Demon, of DS II

    this video is on another level. ive been watching your channel for years and i must say the production value of these novels you and the others create is staggering. the perfect mixing of in game dialog with your script mixes in a way where even though they speak in a sort of backwards old english thats hard to understand the way its put in your story almost translates it for us. even though the character is silent the script and the environmental storytelling you created almost gave them a verbal script. i could hear the character speak which is just brilliant script writing. the music in the background was muted in the story telling but always there ever present. Only to swell and demand attention during the fight scenes. exquisite. Now the fight scenes itself are a masterpiece. you guys took a game that is famous for its difficulty and created beautifully choreographed movie scenes with it. Camera angles where perfect. (radagon death scene with him falling over had me out of my chair) the choreographing was impeccable, the scene sticking out most in my head was the ending fight with D setting it up as the protagonist on the back foot at the beginning, taking a swing as a spell is being cast making the viewer believe "oh! hes got the timing he'll interrupt the spell and gain ground in the fight!" only to have the spell go off first knocking our champion back. This creates perfect tension in the fight even for those who have played through this storyline on their own. Even though this is what i would describe as a documentary on Elden Rings story you guys turned it into a full blown movie and for me personally. This movie gets a 10/10. Simply amazing. Well done!

    the part where Rogier describes his friendship with D really gets me, especially when he says "But our paths since diverged. Never again to cross. Though that's hardly an uncommon fate for two friends".

    • Varsoon HKS
      Varsoon HKS 2 tháng trước +41

      D's a cool guy who hunts down the undead and Rogier started simping for a necrophiliac that glorified literally zombies and skeletons. It's a tale as old as time.

    • CursedUsername
      CursedUsername 2 tháng trước +12

      @Varsoon HKS Rogier didn't really simp as much as he wanted to find out the truth and it turns out that following Fia was the best course of action.

    • Varsoon HKS
      Varsoon HKS 2 tháng trước +27

      @CursedUsername He's been entirely won over by her philosophy that the undead have done nothing wrong and don't deserve persecution and that having Fia gestate the mending rune will be a means of salvation for the undead. This is not a logical conclusion for anyone to come to. Rogier goes from being someone trying to discover the truth of deathroot, fighting the undead alongside D, to someone who has been indoctrinated to Fia's cause--so much so that he even dies a second death defending her at Godwin's corpse.
      In more relatable terms, let's say you have a friend who you play basketball with and he's really into the history of the sport. One day he meets a woman who thinks basketball is racist and should be cancelled, so he stops hanging out with you, stops playing basketball, and commits his life to ending the sport. This woman is notoriously promiscuous and offers 'comfort' to those who side with her. Your friend dies in an anti-basketball rally. The woman who has convinced him of all of this then later finds and kills you. Was your friend
      1. Just a noble scholar of basketball history trying to find the truth
      2. A good dude that was led astray by a hussie?
      Sorry, man, Rogier simped for Fia and died chasing her nonsense cause.

    • Red Bone
      Red Bone 2 tháng trước +10

      @Varsoon HKS But Rogier and D wasn’t that kind of friends. They worked together, yes, but their motivation were ultimately different. One is a devout follower of the Golden Order and all that it stood for, while the other is a scholar who wishes to learn about Those Who Live In Death and the Night of the Black Knifes. Their path crossed due to the nature of their objectives, but it only made sense that they eventually went separate path.
      And regarding your stance on Fia’s goal, have you watched the video? Fia’s goal was not to worship Those Who Live in Death, but to create an Age where Those Who Live in Death have the right to exist, and will have a purpose to live, unlike how they are in the current age, without purpose, goals, or really thought. Fia’s ending is simply give such thing to Those Who Live in Death by giving them a Lord to follow, because as a Deathbed Companion, it is in her belief that such beings has a right to such things. Now whether you agree or disagree with her belief and goal is up to you.
      Personally speaking, the ending doesn’t really solve any of the inherent problems in the land Between making it an okay ending at best.

    Great video, i never expected Fia to hold such significance and that her questline would give a whole new ending. Although it would've been better if you had mentioned something about the dusk/ gloam-eyed-queen; who originally wielded the power of destined death. So i hoped that she'd have some sort of significance in this ending or its outcome. I myself am quite confused about the subject and would appreciate if you made a video about your take on the topic.

      At this point, I have no idea how the Tibia Mariner isn't more of a joke than Pinwheel. All you have to do is stand next to it and spam attacks. You'll get hit once or twice at the most and he'll be dead before your finish him off. The only frustrating part about this fight is the face he teleports, and it's always when they have like, 0.00001HP left🗿🗿
