Slim, but not too slim. Medium rise. A little bit of stretch so that even if they shrink a tiny bit (they do), they will stretch back into fit. Even look good on beefier guys like me.
These are the perfect jeans. They are not too expensive. You can roll into any Kohl's and try on as many different sizes as you need, and they come in various colors.
Best part - once you find the right size, you can order multiples from Amazon. A nice dark uniform wash (Bastion) to "dress up." A medium blue distressed wash (Cash) for bumming around in t-shirts. A uniform flat grey wash (Monogray) to substitute for khakis.
I have searched far and wide over my 36 years on the planet, and the Levi's 513 is the pinnacle of jeans.
Then again, you might try them on and they feel/look weird. That's why you try shit on. =)
As always, Giant Bomb represents the sane, level-headed, silent majority's feelings on this shitshow. Thanks to Jeff for writing this, thanks to the staff for standing behind it, and a big "shaking my head" at the sorry situation that caused it to be written at all.
I greatly prefer the world building and level design of Dark Souls. The interconnectedness of it all, the need to traverse the world rather than warp (for the most part), the darkness and claustrophobia as you descend deeper vs. the light and openness as you approach Anor Londo. The fully-formed characters like Lautrec, Solaire, Siegmeyer, Gwyndolin. The sinister secret of Petrus. The heartbreaking legend of Artorias and Sif. Dark Souls is my favorite game of all time.
However, I just slightly prefer the combat and movement of Dark Souls 2. Stats seem to mean more, especially ADP and your equipment burden. I love dual-wielding in power stance. The expanded magic system is great fun.
Overall, Dark Souls is an A+ and Dark Souls 2 is an A-.
I actually like what Dark Souls is doing. Again it's missing the heart that stuff like Portal 2 and a lot of games this generation possess in spades.
Anyone that says this has not paid attention. Spoilers below, of course.
Seriously, I have played Portal 2, I have played RDR, I have played Mass Effect 2.
If there is a game this generation that has heart, it's definitely and by far Dark Souls.
There are precisely 2 games that have ever made me cry.
1) Mass Effect 3 - Death of Mordin Solus. "Had to be me. Someone else might have gotten it wrong."
2) Dark Souls - discovering and freeing puppy Sif in the Chasm of the Abyss, and then having the pieces all fall into place about Artorias's crippled arm and missing shield in the arena, and future Sif guarding Artorias' memorial to prevent others from getting the ring and walking the Abyss. Sif is trying to prevent anyone else from being corrupted by the Abyss like his best friend Artorias. It's even more heartbreaking if you free Sif and defeat Manus in the DLC before you fight Sif for the ring in the main game. Sif recognizes you as his savior from the past and doesn't want to fight you, but is still determined to keep you from the ring. The animation of the new pre-fight scene is a knife to the heart.
