Oh yes, it is a perfectly awesome game. It is also probably the longest, most content-rich single-player game I have ever played in my life, so when I realised I needed at least a solid week to beat it, I decided to wait until I had the time.
Which was a year ago.
I own Dark Souls myself, and played as some kind of monk. When I got to some kind of mountain area after escaping a prison, my enemies started pushing me off ledges left and right, and I kinda decided that it wasn't worth it.
But I have seen pictures of Gravelord Nito, so maybe it is worth it just to see him in person.
Ah, I may have to pick up a used copy. My insatiable hunger for fantasy games packed with copious content is ever-growing. I don't take your reviews or taste lightly, either.
Haha, Nito is amazing as a character! I wish fist-based stuff was more viable, as it's my tendency in almost every character-building game next to spell-wielding. It is in fact a very frustrating game, but the rewards once you begin to bridge the skill gap can be very addictive.
