Dark Souls 3 has totally monopolized all of my gaming time for the past few weeks, and probably stolen a good chunk of time I should have spent doing other things, as well. I didn’t play it when it was released because I’d just gotten a PS4, and Bloodborne was scratching my FromSoftware itch. While I don’t love it quite as much as that game (to be fair, Bloodborne might be my favorite game ever), it’s still great and I’m enjoying getting back into the Dark Souls world after being away for a while.
I’m one of those freaks who loved DkS II, so while it does bother me a little to see From walking back from the way that game handled lore, and a few parts have struck me as overly fan service-y, between the locations and bosses I still have to admit that 3 has some of the series’ highest highs. I’ve finished the main game and Ashes of Ariendel (which was okay) and now I’m working through The Ringed City. I’m also tempted to do NG+, even though I have a huge backlog of games waiting for me. There are so many weapons and armor sets I want to play around with and so few opportunities left to use them.
