I might get Dark Souls II because it advertises real PC controls. Glorious.

If you have the PC version, find out how many times you've died. I'm excited to see people's statistics, particularly Blanko's. :P

Why is it that this is such an easy yet disturbing way to explain the story of Dark Souls?

"Long ago, during the Age of Ancients, the Dragons ruled a boring, one dimensional setting. The Dragon version of Tolkien was said to have once put to pen the idea of a tree that was sort of a brownish gray, instead of just gray. He was immediately executed for his dangerous, heretical ideas. It would take the four Lord Souls - weird spirit things that some naked zombies found in a fire - to put an end to this era of stupidity. The Souls transformed these naked, on-fire zombies into naked, on-fire humans that would quickly learn just how on-fire they truly were.

The Furtive Pygmy was the least popular of all the four Lords. He was slammed against many lockers, and was totally turned down by the Witch of Izalith when he asked her to prom. But the Pygmy understood how to play the long con, and set a dark plan in motion: to have sex with countless numbers of zombies. Like, thousands of them. No butterface was too stank for the Furtive Dick, in those days. From this long period of weird, secret corpse fucking, there arose all of humanity.

All humans today are descendents of a single corpse fucker. The gods - descendents of the other three Lords - were totally freaked out by this. From their big ass ancient city, they would rule over this sea of incestuous corpse fucking murder-happy pedophile weirdos, who also were all midgets. This would later be known as the glorious Age of Fire. Eventually, the gods would leave the capital of this age of horrifying sexual frenzy. Human historians would be totally confused as to why.

And so was set, the stage for the possible beginning of a new, Dark Age. Where supposedly it'll still be corpse fucking, but without light? I guess? Set forth, noble sex weirdo, to claim your birthright and fulfill the dark wishes of the Furtive Pygmy. It'll be rad. Probably."

I'm pretty sure that stretches things and is wrong in a few places.

This is such a vague review. It'd be nice if he took a little more time to write more than a one-page summary of it and go more in-depth. :[ Though, by the sounds of it, I should definitely be familiar with the first before trying to play that one.

Apparently it's gotten better reviews than the first game, though, so I'm glad to hear that.

Why not? It's pretty good about keeping me really up to date about games, announcements, trailers, gaming stuff and other miscellaneous things I'm interested in.

I use the Steam store home screen for my gaming news. It is probably easier on your wallet to use Kotaku, so that's a point for them.

15:21   Blanko   Saddam: video games
15:21   Saddam   Yes, video games
15:22   Saddam   Like Dark Souls 2
15:22   Blanko   Did you get it
15:22   Saddam   No, I decided I'm not going to bother with it after all
15:22   Saddam   Of course I got it
15:22   Blanko   Maybe you were going to be too busy with Fallout 2
15:23   Saddam   No, Dark Souls is always a priority
15:23   Saddam   Over everything
15:23   Blanko   Then why haven't you completed the DLC yet
15:24   Saddam   Because it's tough to play as a magic guy
15:24   Blanko   >mfw
15:24   Saddam   Everyone says it's so much easier than melee but I don't get it!
15:25   Saddam   Anyway, I'll get back to that later
15:25   Saddam   For now, it's DS2
15:25   Saddam   Which is gud
15:25   Saddam   Well, at least from what I saw of it
15:25   Blanko   >mfw
15:26   Saddam   As you know, I'm incredibly slow, so don't expect too many updates
15:26   Blanko   Why would I want updates
15:27   Blanko   I haven't even gotten to play it myself
15:27   Saddam   Because you are a fanboy
15:27   Saddam   You played the beta tho
15:27   Blanko   i.e. not the actual finished game
15:28   Saddam   From what I've seen of it, it was pretty close
15:28   Blanko   Well, yes
15:28   Blanko   I've confirmed that it is still Dark Souls
15:28   Saddam   The new attributes are good
15:28   Crudblud   Generic Grimdark Souls
15:29   Saddam   Crudblud is a terrible gamer who doesn't have the skill to handle anything beyond point-and-click games
15:29   Saddam   There, I said it
15:29   Saddam   You have no skillz
15:29   Crudblud   I have grill skills
15:29   Blanko   r u a grill
15:30   Saddam   I am a stove
15:30   Blanko   what up stove

I played Dark Souls quite a bit, have over 200 hours on the Ps3 version and the platinum trophy, but I have no interest in Dark Souls II. Maybe because I feel like nothing can top Dark Souls, so why bother?

Does it really need to "top" the original to be worth playing?

Not really, but Dark Souls is also a huge time investment, and I'm guessing Dark Souls II is the same way. I am playing too many games right now as it is.
