Will get it when I get a chance along with Kingdoms of Amalur. Those are pretty much the only two games left on my wish-list from the recent releases atm besides UMvC3 since I want a fighter for the 360.
Look, Dark Souls is like nothing I've played before with the exception of Demon's Souls, its prequel. Skyrim is great but at the end of the day it's another RPG. Dark Souls is just something else entirely. And the difficulty is not that bad at all: you just can't play it like a hack and slasher. Skill matters. Timing matters. Every button has a purpose and you have to learn it and practise it, and be patient. Once you do, the connect you feel with your character is like nothing else.
Skyrim is amazing for the world it creates and its sense of absorption. Dark Souls works on an acutely more intimate level.
