You know, the Dark Souls games (Demon’s Souls included) have this weird veneer to them. To the uninitiated, the games can appear a little humdrum or even generic. This trailer doesn’t try very hard to get you pumped; it looks like some pretty standard medieval fare.
But the mere promise of a new Dark Souls game – for those of us who’ve endulged and struggled with the first two – is all it takes to get you ridiculously excited, not to mention discretely terrified. In any other game, a flock of flying dragons probably wouldn’t be much cause for alarm. In Dark Souls, it’s the harbinger of cardiac arrest.
