Given we’re days away from its official release date, I suppose there’s no harm in revealing what I’ll be playing this weekend: Dark Souls II. Yes, I’m playing it! The sequel to one of my favorite games of the PS3/360/Wii generation!
And now, let me reveal some spoilers about the game. You ready?
There are monsters. A lot of them. Some of them are pretty mean. They enjoy killing you. Really, the game as a whole enjoys killing you. You’ll explore a bunch of depressing, dark, and decaying places. You’ll find new weapons and armor. There are people who say weird things to you, and who you never know if you can trust or not. You’re cursed in some way. The living (and Hollow) trade the souls of the dead like currency.
I know, I know—I’ve ruined the whole game for you at this point. You should still pick it up on Tuesday and somehow force yourself to play through it anyway.
