This armor comes along with the Uber extra special collectors edition.


P.S. I bet the guy in the armor thought, 'OK, zombi apocalypse, bring it.'  xD

While watching that I was thinking how cool it is to do that kind of work, but I was also dreading the ending cuz I know that it's actually impossible to look cool in real life with that stuff on. Then the ending came and they couldn't show it in good light and the guy could barely walk or swing his sword. Kinda wish I stopped right before that part. Cool that they spent the money on this though. I wonder what other crazy stuff they're going to do to heavily market it as a AAA title, as they've said.

I like the closing part of the narration:  "...or be killed."

That's BADA$$!!!  That blacksmith is super talented!  I think a collectors edition with a 12-18 in. version of that would be sweet!!! They could even have that blacksmith do the work!!  I would have to make an exception for that one.

I like it.  That was pretty informative and fun to watch.  Evoked emotion of the "Old ways".  I'm ready again to enter the Dark Souls world.  Bring It ON!

They said they were gonna piss alot of money away on advertisements. So a real life suit of armor for the game... I have a feeling thats just the start.

And this will be my first 2 weeks of vacation off from work next year.

@Havok007 They should pass it on to various people. Seriously, this is the kind of thing that I would like to try on, but would have no use for after 5 minutes. ;) But still, great crafting job, nice looking result!

Unless you want to do your daily workout in it? (lol)
