Check Out Our Dueling Dark Souls Let’s Plays!

This is a very exciting month for me. For those of you that follow the blog and our Co-Op Critics podcast, you know we spotlight one game a month for the show. This month’s game is Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, and I could not be happier.

I am a HUGE Souls games fan. I’ve put over 400 hours into the first three games, and I’m currently making my way through Bloodborne (in a Let’s Play series you can check out here). I’m also an evangelist for the games, so when Nick agreed to take the Souls plunge and play Dark Souls II, I was ecstatic. I’d played through once on the PS3, but with the Scholar of the First Sin edition, there are some changes that make the game challenging even for returning players.

We’re doing something a little different this month–a parallel set of Let’s Plays done from each of our perspectives. Nick is playing through as someone totally new to the game, and I’m going through as someone who played it the first time around, but is taking a new approach and dealing with the updated edition.

Throughout May and beyond, we’ll be posting tons of videos on the YouTube channel, as Nick and I each make our way through the game. I’m also posting a lot of co-op videos, as that is my favorite aspect of the Souls series.

So, whether you’re brand new to the Souls games, or a longtime veteran, we think you’ll find plenty to enjoy in our “Dueling Dark Souls” series.
