Mustache Wager Madness on Dark Souls With James
For the last few months, Game Front walkthrough host, video personality, and all-purpose funnyman James Heany has been playing through Dark Souls. The game’s difficulty is notorious, and without the guidance of colleague Mitchell Saltzman and the helpful commenters on Game Front’s YouTube channel, he wouldn’t have made it far.
Luckily for James, that guidance was available, and only one challenge remains: Gwyn, Lord of Cinder — Dark Souls’ final boss. In recent videos, armed with a powerful sword and only the best magic, James started to get a little cocky. So cocky, in fact, that he decided to do the unthinkable: bet against Dark Souls’ ability to kill him.
The wager worked like this: James had to beat Gwyn in fewer than three tries while wearing the “Symbol of Avarice,” a treasure chest with a mouth full of sharp teeth, and a lolloping tongue that doubles as a helmet and gradually saps the player’s health. If James succeeded, Mitch would give him a coveted bit of swag: a Max Payne 3 pen in the shape of a .50 caliber bullet. If he failed, James would have to do the unthinkable: Shave off his mustache. On camera. Watch the video below to see who prevailed.
