Dark Souls III (Video Game Preview)
Of all the video game franchises in history, few can claim to have perfected masochism to an art form as Dark Souls has. After all, it’s an easy thing to murder a player time and time again, insulting their very skill or desire to continue a-la I Wanna Be the Guy. It’s another thing entirely to have a player stumble through a world of dead nightmares, but always forcing them to stop just shy of quitting out of sheer frustration. Dark Souls III sticks closely to that winning formula, yet FromSoftware has hardly been content to merely rest on its laurels, and has once more reworked its greatest strengths.
