I was actually just thinking about that.  I know John is in the middle of War of the North, so I'm sure we want to talk about that at some point.  Might have to look into another recording fairly soon...

I feel like you'll need plenty of time like Dark Soul before you talk about Skyrim (assuming Bethesta hasn't lied about the gargantuan size of the game).

Just listened to the podcast today (which was awesome), and you all were so convincing that I went out and picked up a copy of Dark Souls today after work.  I think you sold me when you started drawing comparisons to Silent Hill 2.  I loves me some survival horror that's actually scary (I recently purchased fatal frame 2 which is also pretty freaky).

I'm gonna try to not play it until after I finish my re-play of might and magic 9 (i know, i'm a masochist).

Oh, and I thought Dave did really well in his first podcast, certainly wouldn't mind seeing him come back for more episodes.

Im a regular podcast listener and as Im currently struggling with Dark Souls this one was especially interesting to hear your views.

I love it but also hate it.  I wish From had made it a bit more accessible and less annoying, maybe a few more bonfires or even "collective gasp of horror" a beginners Difficulty mode where things are a little less brutal.  When I die at a boss let me respawn at the fog gate for another try, not 10 mins sprint away!

On the other hand its really good to see a JRPG thats not generic chars, story and anime boobs.   If you guys are up for it, it would be good to have a Dark Souls post mortem on a future podcast.  I would be interested to hear how well (or badly) it has done sales wise in Japan, US, EU and compared to Skyrim.

Thanks for TOR beta talk.  As an ex WOW player who is now "clean" you have helped me decide what to do when that comes out.

I actually just beat Dark Souls again, so I'm on my third run with my super-powered character.  Some of the boss fights on NG+ were just awful, and you basically had to cheese the crap out of them to survive.  I still love this game, but it can be more than a little frustrating at times.  I'll definitely give my final thoughts on the next show.

Glad you guys liked listening to Dave.  We certainly enjoyed having him on the show, and look forward to having him back!

Double Post!

Check out our new episode featuring an in-depth discussion of Dark Souls and The Old Republic beta!

How spoiler heavy is this podcast? I'm not going to have time for Dark Souls until Xmas.

I am so not sure what this is supposed to be a jab at me about.  I am so sad now.  :-(

Stupid McIhavenoabilities was a guy you invented in the middle of the podcast. He is the character we all play in the early levels of an MMO.

I don't hesitate to say there really isn't anything you CAN spoil in Dark Souls. There isn't much in the way of a traditional story. Anyone, do you want to weigh on this?

There's probably lots in the way of "Mechanical Spoilers", I think was the term I heard used for it.

Agreed.  We don't really talk about how to get through particular areas, though we discuss difficult areas.  I don't really think we (can) ruin anything.

In case anyone missed it, here's this week's obligatory Metal Gear Solid reference. It's a bit less obvious than usual this time.

Rob: "If what’s her face Naomi Hunter voices one more character..."
