I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Dark Souls II "Rogue Warrior" If Dark Souls Were a Cartoon, This Would Be Its Theme

Posted on Wednesday, February 26 @ 16:00:00 Eastern by


veselekov offers this take on Dark Souls II where our hero sets out on the raddest possible quest to recover his girl, of course. It's a shame Far Cry 3 already went this route given how attractive a retro-VHS take on Dark Souls would be just as entertaining, if not more given From Software's habit of punishing players.

This video transforms Dark Souls II into something new and way more approachable... in that you don't actually have to play it. While I'd love watching someone take on every boss in Dark Souls, I don't know if I could stand watching someone do all that for the first time. So many deaths, so many broken controllers... such shameful displays of rage.

I loved Dark Souls, but I don't think I can climb the mountain that is Dark Souls II. I'm dying to see what's different, what new horrors From Software has cooked up, but I don't know if I'll ever finish the fight.

veselekov wants to know if fans want to see more episodes in this vein, presumably based on our roguish warrior in the video above. I certainly woudn't mind more so-good-it's-bad animation like this.

Dark Souls II is out on March 11th in the US (13th in Japan and 14th in Europe and Australia) on Xbox 360 and PS3. A PC release is planned for 2014 as well.
