Some Thoughts on the Plots of the Souls Games–Why Demon’s Souls is still the Best, IMO

Today’s entry won’t be a “Relaxation Saga” one, nor will it be a general discussion of Dark Souls III as a whole. I doubt I’ll write one; that sort of in-depth game review is something I’m not really in the mood for at the moment. Instead, I’d like to focus on one specific aspect of […]
