I knew I wasn't alone. There's something in the air. Dark Souls is in the air. It's a combination of a few things. The sequel is coming out soon, it's a game that looms large on many people's pile of shame. There's also the fact that Dark Souls is a disease. As soon as someone starts talking about it, three other want to play.
One end result is this: Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw of Zero Punctuation fame has, over two years after the game's release, actually reviewed Dark Souls. And if you're a fan of the series, you'll find that it's brilliantly on point.
And after years of listening to Yahtzee completely destroy every game he plays in an eloquent and frequently hilarious fashion, it's a lot of fun to listen to him talk about a game he actually likes.
Of course, he still finds things to hate. That's part of the hilarity.
