Don't have a favorite video review of Dark Souls, so here's the WTF is... on it. It's basically if you amped up Legend of Zelda's: Ocarina of time's lock on style combat several levels of intensity.
Trying to decide whether to grab Dark Souls before it goes off sale. Not sure if it's my kinda game. What I've seen of it makes me think it's not, but so many people rave about it.... I've got 3 EC tix left, just don't want to waste them.
Nope, it's not rapid twitch movement memorization like that BLASTED HOVERBIKE LEVEL
So, this ain't Battle Toads where you will never ever develop the mad skillz needed to finish the dang thing?
When you rest at a bonfire, a checkpoint, you regain either 5, 10, or 15 estus flasks (depending how much you have kindled the fire with a rare item called humanity). That is the max possible healing potions available between checkpoints, so you can't chug them like crazy if you expect to make it all the way. There also is no MP bar, each spell you equip (healing or offensive magic) has a certain number of uses each and those uses are only refilled when you reach another bonfire and rest or die and return to the last bonfire you rested at.
I hope the game mechanic isn't like Prey... where you sort of never ever die?
