Good to see real hardcore gaming is still alive. Not just the "I play shooters all the time online" G4 definition of "hardcore."

"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials 


Conservatives:  Pushing for a small enough government to be a guest in your living room, or even better - your uterus.


Got to love it =D


If this game isn't voted GoTY by some critics. It will be a tragedy.

Bring on more Soul's games! I can't wait to die some more! Thank you FS!

I knew Dark Souls was going to reach 1 million on the PS3 alone by the end of the year!
