Gamespot:"I'm not what you would call a veteran of From Software's games. I first played Dark Souls while livestreaming the entire endeavour, so I had a troupe of viewers offering me advice, and laughing at my literal pitfalls, as I crept through Lordran. I absorbed Dark Souls II in discrete chunks over a series of press preview events--a scenario too fractured to form a coherent picture of Drangleic. I feel as though Bloodborne is my first true Souls experience. I'm going in blind, and--as I'm playing before the multiplayer servers come online--there's no one around to help me."
