    There is a collectors edition and an even fancier edition (black armour) but both mostly seem to contain soundtracks, figures and the like.

    For those unaware Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to Demon's souls which in turn was a spiritual successor to another series.... It is a franchise noted for its high difficulty and less than easy access to the game. However it has a very devoted fanbase and if you are up for hard and unforgiving game you could do an awful lot worse. By all accounts this is a fine sequel.

    Video
    It has been a week or so now so there should be any amount of footage already up there.
