New episode of Pixel Plays launches this fine Wednesday, and we have to say that John seems to have an affinity for committing game suicide just for kicks. Though it’s typically not the best, or worst- way to kick the proverbial bucket. But in a game like Dark Souls 3 where the phrase “You Died” renders 10 times quicker than “Embers Restored”, both John and Stuart’ll find more than enough ways to meet a gruelling end fighting boss Iudex Gundyr (Save that one time we weren’t recording and Stuart won… ah, classic).
Pixel Plays embraces the darkness in this episode where we play the first few minutes of Dark Souls 3 from FromSoftware + Bandai Namco.
John’s looking to get his Dark Soul’s cherry popped on film, so what better way than taking on Iudex Gundyr in his first boss fight. But John seems more concerned with creating a character that looks like the result of a bad eugenics experiments. Coupled with Stuart’s apparent gambling addiction, “Dark Souls 3” seems to bring out the worst in us.

Storm-off? Or the rare but utterly entertaining wanton destruction of your console? Let’s hear what you think in the comment section and via Twitter “
