Noob Souls: One Hour. One Brand New Player. One Game. Dark Souls. -Pixel Enemy

Dark Souls is a game built with incredible mechanics and immersed in a difficulty that punishes players in all the right ways. Playing the game for the first time can be an exercise in frustration and discovery as you discover that the game only gets easier as you get better.
-Pixel Enemy (Dark Souls, From Software, Namco Bandai, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I remember when my Dark Souls virginity was taken. Good times.

I remember when I played Dark Souls for the first time, I immediately picked the Master Key. I felt that a key that could unlock any door would be useful right from the start and boy was I right. Just in case I was wrong though, I watched some youtube vids on the other gifts, and I was so glad I picked the Key. Lol.

You ruined your experience by watching videos!!! Did you watch the speed runs or walkthroughs before you even started? Did you go crying to Youtube or a strategy guide at the first whiff of danger?!?!

I'm just messing with you. Like a good scotch, this game can be played neat, with a touch of water, or on the rocks... In other words (respectively) with NO help, a little help here and there when you're REALLY stuck, or with guides & videos. Its all up to personal preference.

Me? I like my Souls neat. And I'm dying waiting for DS2... my self inflicted embargo of all DS2 coverage is torture.

Nah, I came into the game as a Demon's Souls veteran so I went into it knowing what to expect. I only looked up about the gifts to see if they're worth getting.

The Pendant was 100% worth it, once you figured out its secret.

Just started this game and a lot of this sounds familiar.

This game was simply amazing. Cant wait f or dark souls 2. It can be frustrating but with patience it isn't all that harf. I just love the combat, classes, the immersive environment. One of my favorites.
