"It seems almost fitting that my experience with the first part of Dark Souls 2’s Crowns of the Fallen Kings DLC trilogy – Crown of the Sunken King – began with all my equipment broken. I was given control of a standard warrior archetype wielding a Longsword and a shield, only both of those things were completely busted. All I had left was a large hammer or a Zweihender; two weapons I have no experience with. All this in a cavern rife with precarious walkways and numerous holes and archers galore.
"This is Dark Souls, all right."
