It's been just under two weeks since Bloodborne brutalized me on JXE Streams. After years of building up the gumption to actually tackle one of From Software's vicious action role-playing games, I finally braved its rank, monster-filled hallways. Know what? I loved it; the tension, the terror and the challenge are intoxicating. Not content to only explore Bloodborne's Victorian nightmare, I've decided to finally try its swords-and-sorcery predecessor, Dark Souls 2. We streamed Dark Souls 2 when it came out on PC in 2014, but this is the brand new PlayStation 4 version. We'll play it for the first time live, for your pleasure.
Tune in right here, to Twitch.tv/Joystiq or at the top of Engadget.com/gaming at 3PM ET to check out the first two hours of Dark Souls 2. Have we played it before? Never. Are we going to die a whole hell of a lot for you? You know it.
If you dig the stream, please make sure to follow us on Twitch! That way you'll know when we go live. If you want to know what we'll be streaming in the coming weeks, bookmark Engadget.com/gaming to check out our schedule.
