Dark Souls trailer offers no assistance whatsoever
This new Dark Souls is called “Hardcore”, which is what you need to be to survive the game’s delights as catalogued within.
“I remember the first time I died,” it begins. Me too! Not so many of the three hundred times since then, although certainly the one where I fell in a hole and was eaten by curse frogs. That was memorable. So memorable I deleted that save file.
