The Demons Souls/Dark Souls series is one designed for fans of self-mutilation and torture. Players get a strange high from repeatedly getting stabbed, smashed, disintegrated, and generally pulverized. If you’re into that sort of kinky stuff, the Dark Souls 2 launch trailer should get you all hot and bothered.
This trailer is awful. I don’t really understand the target audience? Are they looking for teens who also happen to be fans of extreme dark fantasy and generic classic rock? The music doesn’t seem to fit into the Dark Souls universe. If anything, the song playing throughout makes me hate the game.
If this trailer didn’t completely kill your excitement for Dark Souls 2, you can pick up your copy for Xbox 360 or PS3 tomorrow, but all the cool kids and Team Xbro will be playing Titanfall.
