I only just recently got into Dark Souls and I fucking love it now, and it's really not that hard if you take your time. Hell, after a while I was tearing through most of the bosses on my first or second try. After I beat it I started all over again as a spell caster and it's still just as fun as it was the first time though. Definitely one of the best games I've played this gen.
Well I got a 3DS with Zelda and I was finally able to download it this morning after trying many many times yesterday. It is possible but the eshop is still really slow. Seems like both the Wii U and 3DS eshops are having issues.
