Despite all my whinging about Dark Souls it is actually a game that I really want to get into. So while I’ve ummed and ahhhed about it for the past few weeks while playing the sequel, I eventually decided to lash out and purchase the original for Xbox 360 (via backward compatibility) today with the hope that I may build up my skill set and eventually take on the harder sequels with a renewed sense of vigour and understanding.
And you know what surprised me? I actually really like it. So far anyway, I’m sure the first few times I die I’ll get that same sinking feeling again, but considering I didn’t keep flaking out in the tutorial level, I’m feeling like a gaming God.
I also killed a boss! Sure, it’s a tutorial boss, but hey, it’s nice to get one under the belt at the start to know what they’re like to fight. Mind you, the original seems to have given me an Estus Flask with about 10 shots in it as opposed to the two I have at the moment in Dark Souls 2, and I haven’t been shy about using them.
Damn, now I’m worried that they won’t refill at the bonfire – better check that out.
I’m on the fence about whether to play some more of this tonight or dabble in a bit of Destiny. I’m inclined to go with the latter just because it won’t be active soon, but at the same time, it’s nice to play with new things. I’m going to have a drink and something to eat and mull it over.
So there you go, I might become a Dark Souls player yet. Time will tell.
