Dark Souls Trilogy Box Set Announced. In other news, Heaven is Real

Something something ports of last gen games are bad something something….look, i’m biased here, ok. Dark Souls in my all time favorite game and this is a simply stunning collection. A Remastered Dark Souls 1, along with the other two games in the franchise, 6 CD set of the soundtrack, plus bookends art work and an item encyclopedia….yeah, i’m into it ok. What i’m not into is the saddening $450 price tag and the fact that this has only been announced in Japan for the moment. So even if i could afford it, there’s no grantee it’ll even be available to me. However, i’d be lying if i said i expect this to stay only in Japan. Dark Souls began life as a niche title for hardcore games who wanted a little more bite in their games, and then became a worldwide sensation. Simply look at how often Dark Souls is used as a point of comparison (for good or ill) and it’s hard not to say it’s the most influential game of the last generation. As such i’m sure From Software is going to ring as much as they can out of the franchise while they can. And so long as they are providing material as extravagant as this, i’m ok with that.

  1. So I have to ask on your opinion on if this box would be a good jumping off point for getting into dark souls. I mean more for when this hopefully gets a western release, because for a very strange reason this seems so cool despite me not having much history with the dark souls series, I would love to hear your opinion on the matter!

    • personally, as someone who never had much money, i can’t recommend spending this kind of money on anything thatisn’t a sure thing. I would say start with 3. It has the best feeling combat and the world iis streamlined in a way that makes it easier to follow with out the weird disconnect there was in 2. The first one is getting a remaster on it’s own, so if you like 3 you can still get that without issue, and the DS2 re-release ” scholar of the first sin” is pretty easy to find.
