Dark Souls: Prepare to Die EDITION
Namco Bandai Games (PC)
Death lurks around every corner in this unforgiving hack-and slash fantasy that tested the mettle of console gamers last fall. Now the deep and diabolically difficult adventure is hitting the PC in a deluxe edition, with even more dangerous enemies and new dark spaces to explore. The game sets your armored knight adrift with little direction and few save points in a sprawling, seamless world of dank dungeons, foreboding forests, and crumbling castles. Careful customization of your abilities, weapons, and spells is crucial to survival, although you won’t make it 20 feet without mastering the swordplay and sorcery. In other words, only badass (or masochistic) players need apply.
