A Quick Tip by Pine_Bluff_Variant

So you think you're good at video games? Well this game will surely put your skills to the test. This Action-RPG is notorious for it's difficulty, but it is not an inhuman difficulty curve. If you dislike games that are too easy and hunger for a challenge pick this one up.

The game has an atmosphere that immerses you in the game, accomplished through a minimal use of cutscenes and great musical score. the combat is exciting as even weaker enemies can pose a threat if you let your guard down and the boss fights are intense. The game features a multiplayer component, you can lay down a summon sign and players can call you into their game to assist with bosses (or you can call players into your game) and you can even invade another players game for some PvP action.

The RPG component allows you to customize your character in many different ways, you can upgrade weapons or armor and even "ascend" them, giving them additional powers.

If you want a game that will give you hours upon hours of play time, I'd recommend this game. It's out on the X360/PS3 and a PC version with additional content launches this August.

A couple of years ago a game called Demon's Souls came around and was met with surprising praise. The reputation of Demon's Souls was that it was a ridiculously hard game. Those who played it and survived were quite passionate about the game. While those frustrated with it were equally passionate. Regardless Demon's Souls became a success. Dark Souls serves to be the spiritual successor. And it makes one thing clear right off the bat. You will die. Several times. And it's not exaggerating …
