Like haggis fritters smothered in Marmite, Dark Souls 2’s unrelenting difficulty isn’t for everyone. For those with a glutton for punishment, you’re in for a meal that challenges and nourishes like no other – albeit one that likes to hoof you in the unmentionables every chance it gets. Hold me, dear reader. This is going to be one bumpy, but thankfully brilliant, descent back into the depths of despair.

Yeah, Mum, they’re also faster and stronger – that’s kind of the whole point. Well Dark Souls 2’s Mirror Knight sure is stronger and a whole lot bigger, but I know I can beat him.

One Piece Pirate Warriors 2

Curse you, repetitive strain injuries. My thumbs are shredded to absolute ribbons as a result of pressing triangle roughly 13,973 times during this scurvy third-person scrapper.
