Dark Souls II Hands On Preview

Am I truly prepared to Go Beyond Death?

My experience with the Souls series is deep-rooted and extremely memorable. The first time I laid eyes on Demon’s Souls, I was kicking back at a friend’s house between class just passing time and he just had to show me this new game he picked up on a whim. From that moment, I knew that I needed to embark on a quest to obtain this wonderful masterpiece that was so gratuitously shown to me - it was at this point that my love for the series truly began to bloom. Flash-forward two years to when Dark Souls was released and that's when my love for the saga truly came to fruition. I spent countless hours playing the game, days were spent perfecting my skills, and dissecting the lore consumed weeks of my habitual gaming life. All of that said, I suppose no one needs to know how excited I was to be invited into the Dark Souls II Network Beta.

Dark Souls to Slay PC Gamers This August

While PC gamers celebrate, Demon's Souls on the PS3 will rage one last time into the night.

Dark Souls, the spiritual successor of the surprise hit Demon’s Souls, has been lauded by many a gamer for its brutal and unforgiving difficulty – a feature that has separated the game from the more regular AAA fair that was released last year.  It’s a game designed specifically for the hardcore gamer, but it hadn’t yet been able to call the most hardcore of platforms, the PC, home.  That is, until now.

Demon's Souls World Tendency Shifts for the Holidays

It's apparently a white Christmas in Boletaria.

Last week Atlus announced they would be shifting the world tendency in Demon's Souls to white for the holidays.  For the unfamiliar, a pure white tendency means that certain, previously inaccessible locations will be unlocked and the game will be made easier.  Keep in mind that all easier means in a Demon's Souls context is that the game won't kick your ass quite as hard as it normally does.

Demon's Souls Travel Log: Beginning the Journey

Wherein I decide to play Demon's Souls way after the fact.

It’s 2:00 AM, and I really want to play Dark Souls. I don’t know if it was all the podcast talk lately, or the twitter buzz, or that Quick Look on Giant Bomb, but I want this game. But wait! I own Demon’s Souls, and I’ve never actually played it. I think I’ll pop it in. It can’t really be as tough as people say, right?

With Great Difficulty

What happened to "Nintendo Hard?"

I broke two controllers while playing Mega Man II as a kid. Specifically, I broke two NES controllers playing Heat Man’s level in Mega Man II. Even more specifically, I broke two NES controllers while doing the “Hell Blocks” portion of Heat Man’s level in Mega Man II. That particular stage summed up perfectly what the words Nintendo Hard really meant to me. You needed patience, quickness and the ability to predict the future. It also didn’t hurt to have a couple of extra controllers lying around the house, you know, just in case.
