Welcome back to Souls Week! Today, Caelyn’s going to make the case for Dark Souls 2, in a piece that contains spoilers.
It took me a while to get into Dark Souls. That seems like a weird thing to be writing now, akin to, “I wasn’t sure about ice cream at first” or, “I didn’t like the look of puppies.” But I bounced off it a couple of times before being properly ensnared. As a result, by the time I was looking for more Soulsian adventures, Dark Souls 2 Original had been and gone and Scholar of the First Sin was on shelves. According to The Internet, Dark Souls 2 is rubbish. You may be surprised to learn that The Internet is, just for once, spouting hyperbolic nonsense. Dark Souls 2 is actually really good and, let me just brace for impact here, better than Dark Souls 1 in a lot of ways.
