    Shadow of the Erdtree Trailer Reaction

    Shadow of the Erdtree Trailer Reaction

    This morning saw the release of the first trailer for the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC expansion for Elden Ring, and we think it looks pretty neat. So we recorded a little reaction episode and are making it available for everyone to share in the excitement.


    In this episode we also discuss our tentative plans for covering the DLC. Since it's releasing on June 21, 2024 and we need to play it before we can structure the season, don't expect in-depth coverage until sometime in July. We will likely put up a first impressions episode shortly after release to tide you over, though.


    Bonfireside Chat will return for what appears to be a lengthy season, based on all of the stuff shown in the trailer. The format of the show will likely remain unchanged, and Real Lich Hours will continue its normal release schedule as well.
    We're excited to have you along for the ride. Now let's go touch that arm!

    203: An Introduction to Elden Ring

    203: An Introduction to Elden Ring

    On this first big episode of the Elden Ring series, we go over Elden Ring's mechanics and generalities in broad strokes. What's returning from previous From games? What's been improved? What's brand new? We talk about as many systems and aesthetics as we can, in order to establish a basic understanding before we dive into more lore-heavy parts of the game.


    In two weeks, we will talk about the Limgrave West portion of Elden Ring's world. This episode will be the first available exclusively at our Patreon page.

    202: Elden Ring First Impressions

    Rise, Tarnished, and attend the first episode about Elden Ring! There's no way to describe the great unclenching that happened when we realized that Elden Ring is, in fact, good. Whether that bears out over the course of the entire game remains to be seen, but we have high hopes. This episode covers our first impressions after about a week of having the game, and we also lay out our current reckon on how the season will shape up.


    If this is your first time here, we're Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross, a duo of hosts who make Bonfireside Chat. Since 2013 we've talked about Souls games in high detail, in addition to talking about FromSoft's earlier games, their influences, and the whole galaxy of Soulslikes that spun off of Dark Souls' popularity.


    This show comes out every other Sunday, and it's normally available only to our Patrons. If you back at the $5 tier you gain access to every Premium episode of Bonfireside Chat, you can listen to hundreds of hours of patron-exclusive content. If you decide to back us, you can check out how to get your content by looking at this post.


    This episode and the next episode, covering the game's general mechanics and its opening, will be free for all. We really appreciate you listening.

The ultimate FromSoftware companion

Greatly improves gaming experience.

Ahhhh. So, yeah.

Awesome content, but I don’t have any idea how Kole Ross got so many podcasts under his belt. With nothing but fake, forced laughter and super lame jokes not to mention ending every sentence with a fake chuckle and “ahhh…yeah..” it’s un listenable podcast without the content or the guests. Bad podcast manners Ross, and as far as Gary goes, dude needs to watch the words that he says. If there were more Dark Souls podcasts to listen to this one would be dust.

Disappointing

I came in wanting to listen to people talk about my favorite games, but what I got were two guys complaining about every FROM SOFT game imaginable. Besides dark souls one. Their criticism of the games can be boiled down to: it was hard. They take different sections and bosses of the game and they say the game design was bad because it was hard. I feel like for FROM SOFT titles that’s a pretty mute point and when that’s all they had to say, and not to mention they didn’t really talk about what they enjoyed, it just felt like a crap fest every time they spoke about the games. I left disapponted
