Dark Souls

So, you've probably heard of Dark Souls, right?  Hardest game ever, prepare to die, all that gubbins?  Well, there's some good news and some bad news.  The bad news is that, yeah, most of that is right.  The good news is that this is what makes it one of the most intense games ever made.

I'll be honest with you, Dark Souls has kind of become a bit of an obsession.  I've stuck about 160 hours into it. It's seen off Battlefield, Deus Ex, Skyrim and Batman and I'm a bit worried that it's ruined me for other games.  There are a lot of reasons for this, and it's too much to go through in one article, so I'm going to split it up and spend some time with different aspects of it... first up, the famous difficulty.
