Pluggedin: People play video games for different reasons. Some want a mindless time-filler. Others long for a little easygoing fantasy adventure. And many seek out a bit of light strategic brain-teasing. Namco Bandai's action-adventure role-playing game, Dark Souls won't satisfy any of them; it's neither mindless, easygoing nor light.
This is a game designed specifically for those seasoned gamers who want an uphill slog through grimy graveyards. It's for folks who love a digital challenge so difficult that just making it through is a relief-filled victory. Think of it like lifting a grand piano off your toe: You rejoice when you manage it because the pain finally stops.
