  • 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 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: High marks for an old game.

    So I was really surprised how much I was disappointed in this game. First, it had absolutely nothing to do with the difficulty. In fact, it's not really hard. It feels exactly like the old nintendo days where it was just trail and error over and over until you got it. Think Mega Man, Castlevania... More

  • Blog Post: The hardest game this generation is one of the best games ever.

    Dark Souls is hard... really hard. But I love it. The game looks beautiful, the gameplay is fantastic and the game can be quite scary. There was only one issue I had with the game and that was the frame rate would drop during areas with lots of enemies, which was really quite annoying. But is this game... More

No. Dark souls takes place in the wonderfull, yet doomed kingdom of lordran, where you start off in an undead asylum, of course as an undead. And as you make your way through you fight (and kill)...

  • Blog Post: Dark Souls Review: I Did Die...

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE “Prepare to die” a phrase not created by me, but by the marketing team from the publisher, Namco Bandai. For the few readers on campus who may have played the Playstation 3 Cult Classic Demon’s Souls (released as a PS3 exclusive back in 2009... More
  • Blog Post: Unbelievably Difficult but Amazingly Rewarding

    Demon Souls was an R.P.G. that defined the rewarding aspect in the difficulty of gaming. With every boss came a key to the next challenge lying behind that corridor. Every enemy gives you the resource you need to improve, souls. This idea is restated in Dark Souls, but it is also improved upon to the... More
  • Blog Post: A game that finally proves difficulty can be fun

    Within the first few minutes, Dark Souls shows its difficuly, quickly punishing every mistake you make with death after death. That is what makes this game so amazing, taking down a single enemy is satisfiying. Each has it's own attack patterns with weaknesses and strengths. Figuring out how to best... More
  • 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: dark souls is becoming my favorite game of all time

    Dark Souls reminded me why i love being a gamer. This game is the castlevania game youve always wanted mixed with resident evil [pre re4] with a hint of Zelda and a splash of oblivion. im not even a big rpg guy. the only rpg ive ever beaten was FF9. If youve ever beaten a hard game like ninja gaiden... More
  • Blog Post: Another excellent (and hard as heck) game by 'From Software'

    Ok, beat the game - ended up with a level 78 character.....love, love, love Dark Souls. Patch 1.5 is now out, and will no doubt make the game a little more user friendly and accessible to many, but by no means will it still be easy at first. This game is designed for those that are patient. Many say... More
  • Blog Post: A fantastic addition to the Action-Rpg universe

    Where to begin? It's 2:30 AM, and yes I've been playing Dark Souls since 4 PM. This is easily one the greatest action-rpgs to have come out in well over years. The premise is simple: go throughout the many areas and kill enemies and bosses to gain their souls. But what makes this adventure stand... 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: Death is Only the Beginning

    I will not hide it. Demon's Souls has probably been one of my top 5 games to come out in the past two years. Something about the game just resonated with me.
