  • Blog Post: Bringing Difficulty Back From The Dead

    Decaying, hopeless, and alone is how you find yourself at the very start of Dark Souls. The introduction to this brutal game acts as a foreshadowing for the emotions that players will feel from the very start as From Software delivers one of the hardest retail games to date. From the outside the game... More
  • Blog Post: Dark Souls Review- A world of hurt awaits

    I’m making my way down a corridor, having prepared my spells, weaponry and gear for this specific area. I have two co-op partners I summoned for the occasion, one who is a mage, and a heavy hitter with a dragon’s head. I’m just about to go into the final boss area when a player who... More
  • Blog Post: Dark Souls!

    As the spiritual successor to one of the toughest titles of the next generation, Dark Souls tests the might of anyone willing to give it the time and effort needed to best this unbearably difficult game. Developed by the guys at From Software, Dark Souls is not the direct follow up to their previous... More
  • Blog Post: Dark Souls Challenging and Fun

    After hearing so many people at uni discussing a difficult game called Dark Souls. It was a dark and stormy day when my friend sent me a message over Xbox Live demanding I play this game which disciplines the player for every mistake. After battling through the rain to my local store and found that they... More
  • Blog Post: Dying is Such Sweet Sorrow

    The tagline "Prepare to Die" describes From Software's Dark Souls aptly. This RPG set out to capture the difficulty of older games and does so in the best way possible. Every new enemy sets players' jaws wary and demands attention as they approach, wondering what kind of death awaits... More
  • Blog Post: Dark Souls: classic difficulty for a new generation

    There were so many times playing through Dark Souls that I wanted to chuck the game out the window. There were so many times that I had thought I had experienced the worst that it had to offer, only to be greeted by another room of pain and suffering beyond that I'd yet seen. But then there were...

  • Blog Post: The most brilliant RPG ever created

    As long as I have been playing video games, no other game has left me as overwhelmed by its atmosphere, stunned by its design, or enthralled with its gameplay as Demon's Souls. I played it about a year after it released, and it instantly shot to my "Top 5 Games I've Ever Played" list... More

    Normal 0 false false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE This is my first review. I don't know much about reviewing games but I did my best. Prepare to Die. Again and again. Dark Souls, From Software’s spiritual successor to Playstation 3 exclusive Demon’s Souls, is an intense third person... More
  • Blog Post: Dark Souls: You'll Die and You'll Like It… Mostly

    This review was done on Xbox 360. As a player who never played From Software's Demon's Souls and grew up with turned based RPGs (most heavily based on Dungeons & Dragons), Dark Souls comes as a breath of fresh air, if inhaled through the blood filling your mouth from the game punching you...

  • Blog Post: Further Details in Addition....

    I agree with Phil's comments and most of the other reviews. Trying to figure out which direction will lead to further advancement in the game is almost impossible without looking at the walk-through, and it is possible to drop or have Frampt eat a ring that will limit your chances for progression...

  • Blog Post: I was not ready for this.

    Never before Mirrors Edge's speed runs have I played a game that required such precise timing and perfection. Dark Souls is a relentlessly difficult game and the player will be fully aware of this within the first 15 minutes of playtime, they will fail and die, a lot, over and over again. I can't... More
  • Blog Post: Its hard but very possible

    I heard a lot about this game in late 2011 and wasnt really sure if I wanted to try it since I had plenty of games I playing at the time. After talking to some co-workers that played the game and watching videos of the game I decided to give it a shot. Playing it for a few hours I had to agree yes the... More
  • Blog Post: Punishment and Gaming Discipline

    It's been a long, long time since I could say that I've beaten, let alone played an RPG. My days of Zelda and Fire Emblem are long behind me, left in the shadow of an Xbox 360. I've been spoiled by the easiness of the shooters such as Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Left 4 Dead, and other... More
  • Blog Post: One of a kind!

    Seriously where you gona find another game like this where you can play with your friends and do quests? Its like a new age Gauntlet Legends, Diablo 2, or Golden Axe. Besides for PC MMO's that cost monthly payment plans that cost more than magazine subscriptions for a year. Even Skyrim, Obvilvion... More

  • Blog Post: Dark Souls Review

    Didn't like it. I rented this game from Redbox to see what all the hype was about. I played for about 3 hours and got through the prison and the castle with the red dragon on it. I think I got like 60G of achievements. What I didn't like is the degree of difficulty. With every boss I died at... More

  • Blog Post: Dark Souls: Holds No Hands, Pulls No Punches

    From Software's unforgiving venture into the world of Demon's Souls was an unforgettable experience for all. For some, it was the ultimate test of patience and skill, yet for others it was merely an exercise in controller breaking rage. For me it was the former. Love it or hate it, it was something... More
  • Blog Post: Great

    this game is awesome... one of the best games i have played in a very long time and the only thing from giving it a 10 is the way it saves+difficulty. I understand this game being so hard and it is very hard which isnt a problem it just gets extremely frustrating that you cant save right before u fight... More
