I got the game via Gamefly the other day and finally put Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine aside to start it up. Here is the new kitten sitting on my lap during the introduction video.
He was just as curious and excited as I was. We both couldn’t look away from the screen. Unfortunately I missed taking a photo of him as the demon/dragon thing appears and roars. The cat puffed up and arched his back. It was absolutely hilarious and my sides hurt after my laughing.
Anyways, I beat the first boss of Boletarian Palace last night and have to say that this is one of the most challenging games I have ever played and has one of the most interesting settings and story I have experienced in a video game. The last time I had this sort of reaction to a video game storyline was with Dragon Age (NOT Dragon Age II… That game was lacking in the environment I enjoyed so much in the first one). If there were novels created to go with this games series I would be very happy.
I was in for a great surprise when I first died. I have to learn to be a bit more patient while progressing through this game because rushing into the unknown will make you regret it.
If you have not played it on the PS3, I recommend you check it out. Those of you without the PS3 will be able to enjoy the next game, Dark Souls, coming out 10/04.
“Best of luck to you.”
