The Dark Souls Letters Part 2: Gaping Darkroot

Gaping Dragon

The original Dark Souls was my least favorite game in the venerable Souls series by a pretty wide margin. The reasons are numerous, but in a nutshell I just wanted to be done with it by the time I got to Gwyn. I was so aggravated that I skipped the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, which is regarded by many as the high point of the entire series. Being as obsessively completionist as I am about these games, I have to go back and take care of it before Dark Souls 3’s final expansion is released. I turned to GameCritics’ resident Dark Souls apologist Mike Suskie for guidance and counsel. The latest portion of our correspondence is below, with more updates to come as I progress through the game. Enjoy!

Free-to-play games have boomed to unprecedented levels of quality over the past couple of years. It’s hardly even a gamble that starting one will be time well spent at this point — it’s just a matter of deciding which game is the most worthy of sinking a boatload of hours into. Whether you’re a MOBA fan, an MMO connoisseur, or an FPS master, there’s something out there for everyone, all at the low, low price of … well, free.

This Is Not A Review: Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC

FO4_Experiment

Brad Gallaway recently rolled out a new column titled This Is Not A Review. In it he discusses general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game he’s playing, but not reviewing. It’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z. I’m hijacking his column to offer my impressions on Fallout 4‘s latest DLC — Vault-Tec Workshop, which is developed and published by Bethesda for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
