The lights are on
From Software's upcoming action/RPG Dark Souls is gearing up to kill you. In the game, I mean. What better way to prepare yourself than by watching this creepy teaser trailer?
Talking about games wanting to kill you reminds of the time a friend of mine was playing Diablo II, trying to level his first hardcore character online (where if you die, the character is deleted forever). He's having some trouble with the first boss, Andariel, so he joins a game called Kill Andy Now (the colloquial term for Andariel) on Battle.net looking for some help from his fellow adventurers.
Of course, he gets killed by a player 30 levels his senior as soon as he goes through the waypoint.
My friend's name? Andy. Obviously.
Remember: If it looks like something on the Internet is trolling you, it probably is.
Anyway, Dark Souls comes out on October 4 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Phil's Gamescom preview is your best bet to learn actual things about the game instead of looking at pretty videos in the meantime.
I already have this beauty pre-ordered I CAN'T WAIT!!!
first the faithful knights of grim the lord of sunlight look a lot like Yurt the silent chief from Demon souls, armor wise. and second this trailer is awesome, kinda has an lotr feel to it but still very unique. love it
Reading the story of D2 made me want to go make a new hardcore character. Thanks Adam.
that was kool i might have to check out 1st one i read a couple of days ago that the 1st is hard ill b the judge of that
That was a great story, I feel bad for hardcore characters that get troll killed, but nothing beats having $16,000 worth of virtual stuff stolen from you in an MMO heist (reference to an event in EVE online).
can't wait for this, just beat Demon Souls and loved every death of it
bring it i can't wait to die :)
I can't wait for this game much longer. Guess I'll just have to work on Demon's Souls while I wait.
That Was a creepy trailer. I even think it featured the Spectre briefly. :)
