Greatsword of Artorias has been recreated in real life

I think we can all agree that Artorias the Abysswalker is by far the most badass character in all of the Souls games. He went straight in to the mouth of hell itself, sacrificed his own life in order to ensure that his canine companion survives, and when he finally returned as a mere husk of his former self he was still strong enough to mop the floor with pretty much every Dark Souls player while only using one hand!

And what better way to commemorate one of the best swordsmen in the Souls universe than by recreating his fabled greatsword with real metal in its full, titanic glory. Here's the video showcasing how exactly the sword was made, and how unwieldy it is to use for us mere mortals:


The only thing I can really say after watching the video is that I would love to have an entire "How its made" TV series dedicated to recreating and testing some of the most famous gaming weaponry, because this was immensely enjoyable experience.

Dark Souls 3 is coming on April 11, and after playing it for a day all I can say is: get excited. As for the review, it should be up in a couple of days, once I can truly experience everything Lothric has to offer.
