I don't write on here as much as I'd like (work/podcasts/class!) but I wanted to pop on and announce a new show that we're doing. If you are interested at all in the game Dark Souls (and you really should be), we have the show for you:

Have any of you ghosties played it? What did you think?

I have not played it, but plan on getting around to it. Bummed to hear its sequel is PS3 bound only.

I like the idea of a podcast to do a deep dive on a game. Will this be Dark Souls only or will it deep dive on another game at some point?

I tried to play it on the computer but the terrible controls made it almost impossible to play. I'm going to give it another try on the ps3 eventually.

@BR: You more or less have to use a PS3 controller or an xbox controller. Solves all the issues, however.

@Jon, we're doing the souls series. So it goes Dark Souls, Demons Souls, Dark Souls 2.

Cool, that should be plenty o content then :D

We're comfortable with it being a limited run, like seasons of a tv show. If we wanted to go back further, we'd end up in King's Field territory and we're not quite comfortable with that yet.

That makes sense. Adding it to my podcast client thingy. Ah, doesn't show in iTunes yet, so ill wait a bit then.

This is one of my favorite games primarily because it doesn't hold your hand. A lot of games do the whole "GO HERE!" or "FOLLOW THIS GUY!" This game nearly does a full 180 and tells you just the controls, and very little about an area. What info you do get is left by other players. It's a bit refreshing in that regard.

@vdogmr25, we are going to go into that IN DEPTH. Check out the show!
