The Darkish Souls video games have been offline for (checks calendar) 113 days now, and whereas Bandai Namco has promised it is “actively working” on a repair, that is a frustratingly obscure assurance for these amongst us who nonetheless play these video games day by day. I do know one individual like that, and I solely know round a dozen folks.
Additionally spare a thought for Souls newcomers, who could also be impressed to play the trilogy in a post-Elden Ring bout of enthusiasm. Whereas the sport is offline, options like cooperative play are non-existent, and likewise, the ever-useful soapstone messages will not be there to warn of ambushes, or to level out good locations for leaping.
Don’t fret although, as a result of modders have come to the rescue. Created by modder KingBoreHaha, the Group Message Mod is out there for each Dark Souls Remastered and the previous Prepare to Die edition, and because the identify implies, it provides over 200 “community-submitted soapstone messages”.
Truthful warning, although. I do not assume you need to anticipate these messages to be on model. it is doable that some (or most) will probably be extraordinarily unhelpful too. Listed here are some examples, with out the context of the place they’re positioned in-game:
- Welcome to Stinksville, inhabitants: you
- I shit my pants.
- Bigass fucking worm right here
- Thanks for buying WinRAR.
- Don’t get slorped
- It certain was good for Manus to ask us to see the Abyss, ay Luigi? I hope he made lotta spaghetti!
- we’ve been attempting to succeed in you about your automotive’s prolonged guarantee.
- hehe oniom
- Strive leaping
I can see how two of these may very well be vaguely useful (the one concerning the bigass worm; presumably the one which references Manus). However yeah… the messages themselves are fairly foolish. A few of them are humorous, a few of them are dorky, a few of them I simply do not perceive as a result of I am getting previous.
Arguably extra attention-grabbing, is that among the soapstone messages within the mod are accompanied by particular results. The mod itemizing specifies that there is no less than one large cat (that assaults you), however others will inflict you with standing results, amongst different issues. “Something might occur, be careful!”
Appears like a enjoyable option to carry Lordran again to life whereas we anticipate on-line to start out working once more. Bandai Namco “don’t have an estimate of when that is anticipated to occur”.
