  • The PC Version Review

    You make your way up a hill to an obelisk that sits atop a precipice jutting out over the sea. Sitting at the base of the stone structure is a soldier, dressed in heavy armor, hanging his head in shame. His spirit is broken. There is a stone plaque on the obelisk, which you read. "10,859 Deaths Worldwide". The game has yet to officially launch and, already, over 10,000 player characters have died violent deaths in a cruel and unforgiving world.

  • Taking the PC Version for a Spin

    Dark Souls 2 is a resoundingly good RPG, if our official review is anything to go by. But the original Dark Souls' PC edition was an abhorrent nightmare of a port. The studio, From Software, admittedly said, "Look, we're sorry, but we're not PC guys. We'll do better next time, I promise." So it was with cautious fingers and eyes on my monitor that I booted up DS2's PC edition. I will say these things primarily: the graphics transferred nicely. The UI and controls, have not... yet.

  • Character Development, Frustration, & Mechanics

    I've got to be totally honest, I didn't get Demon or Dark Souls. They seem to be part of that exclusive group of love 'em or hate 'em games that just don't do indifference. To some the Souls' series are frustration and pain ploughed onto a disc, and to others it's somewhere nearer fantasy perfection.

  • A Peek Inside a Wonderful Wicked World

    Earlier this week we were given the opportunity to play Dark Souls 2, From Software's upcoming sequel to the critically acclaimed Dark Souls. For those unfamiliar with Dark Souls it is a fantasy 3rd person RPG with a punishing learning curve based on trial and error. In today's 3 hour preview session of Dark Souls 2 I died more than 50 times, several of which were in the tutorial zone.
