You are in fact removing a parasite from the pig (not ripping of the tail).

I bought an Ipad mini mainly to play Super Hexagon.

The Wii version controls are awesome. My favorite version by far.

Dark Souls.. it has drawn me into its world way more. Although I agree with Souai: some of the latter level designs (e.g. Izalith) are far from on par with the early ones.

I think the game is amazing, but to me it seems like they should have made it a bit shorter, and gotten rid of a few poorly made areas.

Same problem here. Not quite often enough to really bother me, but it is annoying.

Jumping took me a few hours to find too. Sliding down ladders, that is just awesome. What happens if you slide down into an enemy climbing the ladder?

One of the best games this year with ease. And it manages to be so, even though:

- Poor frame rate.

- Stupid looking ragdolls (seriously, turn off collision with the player character, god damn it)

- Targeting system mess up, where e.g. my spells shoot in completely wrong direction.

This game does everything I've ever wanted from an action RPG:

- No quests and lengthy uninspired dialog trees. Atmosphere > story.

- Simple combat that actually requires skill - make no mistakes about the heavy combat animations: it's NOT bad design, is not lazy, but is cleverly thought out and provides some of the most exciting combat I have ever played.

- Damage is high both for you and your enemies, so combat never drags out, but is quick and dirty.

- No generic enemies. All the different enemies pose a unique threat.

- Fine tuned level design, no generic semi-random boring landscapes. Every corner you turn is new and exciting.

- An online implementation where other players don't pull me out of the atmosphere with their endless complaints, dirty talk, and LOL's, and what not. Instead, here they seem a natural part of the game world and fiction.

In short.. I honestly think that most RPGs will be immensely boring after Dark Souls.

It truly says something that a game with a horrible framerate and lack of polish in its graphical presentation as well as its sound effects, still ends up being the best gaming experience I have had all year. No other RPG, or game in any genre for that matter, have had me this completely absorbed into its world.

Dark souls has soul. It's fresh, original, creative, and it's clearly done by people who do not care how other companies make their games. Love it.
