Dark Souls III: Pants Man

I promise this is the last time for quite a while that you'll pop over to Cool Ghosts to see a picture of a naked man with a bag on his head, but this is just a final plug for last week's charity stream. It's up on YouTube in three chunks, clicking the image above will begin the playlist. It's a long old thing, but we had a blast doing it and have almost raised £15,000.

Thanks so much for watching and donating - let us know which moment you enjoyed the most, and if you were one of the fine people sharing art in the stream, please do post a bit of it below!

Something For The Weekend: 24th June 2016


Apologies for using a photo of Britain for the header image this week instead of art from a fun videogame, but it's been a bit of a tumultuous week. After our nation decided to crash the economy so that Boris Johnson could have a cool job, it's been a bit difficult to think about games. It's also been difficult to play any games, as the magic box in my building that does electricity exploded last night. (EXPLOSIONS!)

I spent last night eating melting lemon sorbet by the light of a candle, and awoke to find Britain covered in poo in a flat with no electricity or hot water. Honestly, I can't gripe - it's impeccably thematic. Importantly though, life continues! Tomorrow me and Chris Bratt will be live-streaming Dark Souls III: Pants Man from the Eurogamer offices, because they have electricity and are lovely people. If you'd like to donate to our charity event you can do so here, and if you're near London and fancy watching it with other people - go to Stratford's Loading Bar. 10% of the bar spend will go to charity, so if you're in the mood to drink drinks and peopleize with people - which is wholly understandable - it's a pretty good place to do it. Finally, I adore the fact that a local newspaper has taken my claim of playing Dark Souls till I'm exhausted as a literal, quotable fact. Small pleasures.

JOY. In other news of fiction becoming reality, I am enacting the joke at the end of our Subnautica video and playing still more of the current build instead of waiting for them to finish the darn thing. I’m in love. And speaking of love (and sex, and sex work) I’m absolutely loving the commercial release of VA-11 Hall-A. It keeps making me laugh, making me think and I can’t wait to squeal about it on the next Daft Souls. It’s also available on Steam, but buying it on will give the devs a little bit more of your cash.

Dark Souls Pants Man III - IT'S CHARITY TIME

This weekend myself and Mr Chris Bratt are continuing the now ANCIENT TRADITION of playing Dark Souls with a character who is only wearing pants. This is a video talking about what we're aiming to raise money for this year, and why. You can donate to the Just Giving page here, or text "PNTS64 £X" (where X is the amount) to 70070. 

We'll be starting at 10am on Saturday, and continuing until we can no longer hack it. The stream will be broadcast initially on Twitch, and then uploaded to YouTube afterwards. Enjoy, thank you, and we hope to see you on Saturday!


Please note that for the early section of the video stream we had the wrong text message number on-screen. it is 70070, not 70700. Apologies for the confusion!
