What, did you think From Software would take a break from releasing its punishing Souls games just because Bloodborne is out the door? Just the opposite.

Am I "good" at games? I don't know. I'm 30 years old: I've been playing video games for 25 of those years, give or take, and covering games professionally for just over six years.
