Demon’s Souls, 2009’s surprise hit action/RPG/n00b gristmill by From Software, is one of my favorite games of all time. If you’ve ever played Demon’s Souls, even for a minute, you probably know that it is very hard. You may also know that its spiritual successor, Dark Souls, is being released on October 11th, 2011, and that From Software has promised that it will be even harder than the first, testicle-stompingly difficult installment. In fact, the most recent trailer for Dark Souls was basically just a montage of player deaths. There are certainly some cheeky devils at From Software, but they make damn fine games.
So, to kill time until October, I recut the trailer to go with some apropos music:
I can’t for it to kill me again and again and again.
