DualShock Nexus: Since the days of Mario, trial and error has been a critical method in the way I play games. When there is a frustrating or difficult checkpoint in any game, I will die over and over again whilst looking for a way to succeed the next time around. Demon's Souls is probably the first game I played where trial and error becomes your best friend. That game will beat you down until you throw your DualShock against the wall and curse the gods. When I started hearing all this talk about an easy mode for Dark Souls, I immediately shook my head in disagreement.
