Players of the ‘Elden Rings’ are having fun with each other in a hilarious way.
Eldering is a bit easier than the rest of Soulsborne’s collection. However, it’s still challenging and hard to master because everything in the Lands Between needs your guts for garters. It seems like players are taking advantage of the messaging aspect of the game, winding up each other instead of offering guidance. I have to admit that it is pretty funny.
There is a series of imaginary walls within Elden Ring for the uninitiated. These walls obscure unique loot or areas. All the player needs to do is find them and bash their sword or another stabby tool into the wall. I’ll tell you that the Academy of Raya Lucaria has a Comet Sorcery spell and that another is in Sainted Hero’s Grave. It seems that most players leave messages about illusory walls, which means that other players are jamming into walls like lemons.
There’s nothing to lose by battering a wall, but there is no gate to sweet treasure. It’s annoying and frustrating, but you can understand the frustration that comes with realizing someone is trying to take you out of the game by offering a boon or shortcut past some terrible enemies.
Sam Greer believes that Elden Ring can be viewed as a comedy, despite the tomfoolery inflicted upon one another. It twists the knife one moment, and then a dummy knife another. She explains that it’s all about unexpected outcomes in the game comment. Sometimes it’s through a portal to confront a terrible monstrosity at all ends of the earth. Other times, it’s fighting a sentient boulder. It’s impossible to predict what lies around the corner, which is a big part of what draws people to these games.
