Let’s make this clear right off, I adore this game. I do. So if you want to just cut to the chase and move on, yes I recommend this game. If you want to know why, or just want to learn more about the game then let’s do this. Be warned, there is a lot to cover here so sit back, relax, grab a drink and read on.
I didn’t even think twice about this game when it came out. I thought “Who cares?!” the first one had mixed reviews at best, why on earth is there another one? It wasn’t even a blip on my radar except for really enjoying the videos that Outside Xbox/Extra were putting out about it. I laughed at the videos, thought maybe it looked ok, if a bit boring and life went on.
Took me a few days to find them! Once I did I knew I had to make a video as there was literally ZERO videos showing this, from the bonfire, on YouTube.
Stephen tests if adding a backplate to a graphics card actually affects the temperature of it.
Today Stephen installs and runs Dark Souls 3 on the original Surface Pro Tablet. It ran Tomb Raider, Dark Souls 2 and Crysis like a champ but will a brand new release cripple it? Let’s see if the Surface has finally met it’s match!

Let’s take a quick look at Dark Souls 3. Not a full review, I still have many, many hours left to put into this game before I can offer an intelligent review of it.
It’s no surprise I like this game. I’ve posted many boss fights with more to come as well as talked about my adoration for this game on Monday Vlog #4. I finally finished the game and am ready to talk about it. I may mention Dark Souls many times, not unlike other reviews, so get ready for that.
So why do I like this game? Simply put it takes just about everything that the Souls franchise does right and accurately translates that into a 2D action, platformer RPG. Right from the outset you can tell this is going to be a game that requires precision, great hand to eye coordination and lots of patience.
