Co-Op Critics Podcast: Dark Souls II

In the latest episode of the Co-Op Critics podcast, Brian is joined by Nick Merritt to discuss Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin. It’s Nick’s first Souls game, and they talk about the game’s learning curve, the risk-reward nature of its systems, and the joy of multiplayer.

You can listen to the episode right here in the player above, and don’t forget to visit out YouTube page, for the Dark souls 2 videos we’ve put up over the past month.

For our June podcast, we’ll be doing a special episode on E3 2015, so look for that mid-month.
