Though it’s often easy to forget, there really was life before the internet.

Dark Souls 2 screens

Ah, the humble virtual pirate. If he’s not sailing the scurvy seas in search of treasure-hoarding islands, he’s doing folk in with a pair of cutlasses or disguising himself as a tiny metal robot. Wait, come again. Yes, this collection of barmy buccaneers may not be textbook sea rogues, but they can shiver our timbers whenever they damn well please.
