Watch someone punch Dark Souls 3's first boss to death

Dark Souls 3 won't be available in the West until April 12, but where there's a will, there's a way. That saying goes double for YouTube user "BR34K," who not only got their hands on a copy of the game already, but decided to take on the first boss, without weapons.

I suppose you could consider what comes next spoilers, and part of the fun of Dark Souls games is discovering the mysteries for yourself, so only watch if you don't mind those aspects of the game being a bit ruined for you.

It's not uncommon for the Dark Souls community to do stuff like this; naked runs where players try to beat the game without armor or weapons are popular, and players of From Software's other uber-difficult action-RPG, Bloodborne, have likewise tested the boundaries of the game by beating the game without leveling or using only guns.

Usually that stuff happens long after the game has been out, though. You sure this is the route you want to make your entire Dark Souls 3 experience about, BR34K? Not that I would tell someone who punched a demigod to death how to play, of course.
