Surely this must be a sign from the gods themselves… or purely coincidence, but that feels less thematic. On the eve of releasing the first episode of 2 Guys, 1 Pad – where we dare to undertake the colossal challenge that is Dark Souls – BluePoint unleashed the first gameplay trailer for their remake of FromSoftware’s Demon’s Souls (Grandaddy of all the ‘Soulsborne’ games) and it looks glorious!
For those not in the know, Demon’s Souls was a Playstation 3 exclusive which found huge Japanese acclaim because of it’s unforgiving, but more importantly fair gameplay. If you died (and you will) it was because you fucked up, not the game screwing you over.
With that acclaim and a whole lot of Japanese imports, finally, the game saw a Western release. That was the point when I first played the game, and I have to say it was as amazing as I had heard.
Now with the return of the original bastard-hard game just around the corner, I’m left with a decision. Is this a journey I let Jeremy join me on, or a path I walk alone…?
Option 2 seems a lot less stressful.
