In most games players take control of a weakling and attempt to grow strong so they can beat the boss at the end of the game. What if there was a mode that allowed you to take control of the bosses and fight other monsters? Well, that's what one modder has attempted to do with Dark Souls.
As you can see, the fight is glitchy as all get out. The bosses were put into an arena fight to stay contained, but some of the animations glitch, some of the moves don't connect well at all and true to the nature of some mods making things possible that were never meant to be, we get to see some massive clipping issues where both giant, evil-looking beasts clip through each other whenever they perform an attack. On the upside, it gives Dark Souls a kind of kaiju feel to it and makes it look like a Godzilla flick come to life.
In the description, DaTeHaCKs comments about the idea of bosses fighting each other, writing...
Some users complained about not being able to get their hands on the mod and that the mod wasn't that special. However, DaTeHaCKs explains that the mod comes courtesy of the tools provided by Dark Souls' debug mode and that simply sharing it right now isn't viable due to the work required to make it proper. He had to modify the controls and some of the other game settings in order to get the game to respond proeprly to playing as the bosses.
One of the big issues in Dark Souls that he mentions is that the bosses are massive... really massive. Due to their size he's had to modify the debug camera to zoom out enough so players can actually see what's going on in the screen. Even then, as the video above shows, it's tough to see exactly what's going on at times. There are various videos of other bosses that are playable in the mod as well, you can check out another boss-on-boss fight below.
For the people who have complained about the mod and the requirement for the debug tools, DaTeHaCKs make it clear that complaining and whining won't make him change from his current course and direction with the mod. He states...
It's pretty cool to be able to play as the bosses in Dark Souls and it would be nice to see this mod grow and flourish into something usable. It could make for some very fascinating machinima.
