Breaking Down Dark Souls 2

Role-playing survival game is willing to take risks

This week on the podcast, Ken and I were joined by my friend Rob from the RPG cast a few months ago to talk about our thoughts on Dark Souls 2.

Dark Souls 2

Ken started things off by talking about the Oculus VR/ Facebook dispute involving John Carmack.

We then moved on to games we’ve played starting with my time with the horror game Outlast. This lead into a discussion on horror games which somehow led to us bringing up EA yet again.┬áRob’s recent play of Child of Light framed a RPG discussion as we talked about our love of Paper Mario for the Gamecube and some of our favorite JRPGs. Then Ken and Rob talked about the return of Tex Murphy with The Tesla Effect.

Finally we got to the big topic: talking about Dark Souls 2. This part of the cast does talk about the boss fights and general path through the game so spoiler alert. Since Rob has played all three souls games, we talked about how Dark Souls 2 ranks, the change in game mechanics, boss battles, enemy design and more.
