It was right around the new year when Dark Souls first invaded my life, three and a half playthroughs and a month later and I've completely finished it. Mostly did it myself too, no muling, trading for weapons, etc. Strange thing is, I don't even think I'm done yet, I feel like there's so much more still to do in this awesome game.
Thanks to everyone on this board for being super-helpful, it is much appreciated. :)
Congrats TC, I did the same like a week ago. I just started my NG+ play through on Demons Souls. I am seriously contemplating getting the dlc for this and doing a sorcerer run after I platinum Demons Souls. This series is just so amazing/addicting.
