Finally the latest installment of the Souls franchise came out, reviewers everywhere are calling it 10/10 with some of them going as far as calling it best game of all time. This article is spoiler free, but the screenshots do show some late game areas (no bosses). At the moment of writing, I have 92 hours in the game, I play on PC, linux, I started on launch day on 1.01 (the day1 patch), and finished on 1.03.2.
This game was completely off my radar, I've heard they are making a sequel, but I imagined it's not coming out anytime soon. I have never played the original game from 2005, the only thing I know is that it was a pretty huge success, and I've seen a lot of worry that people were very afraid that studio is not going to be able to make a proper followup that can live up to it. A lot of people were caught by surprise when the game actually got glowing reviews.
I played the classic version on the Xbox360, many many years ago, and then completely forgot about this game. It was a very nice surprise that Atlus decided to remake it.
