So that Dark Souls game came out this week, didn't it? I still have to get around to properly playing its predecessor, Demon's Souls, since my PS3 died right when I first started it and never got back into it. But anyone with an interest in either game should read up on King's Field, the first person action-RPG from whence these games sprung. Originating on the original PlayStation, they're very...well, old and clunky, but as usual they're interesting from a historical perspective. And if you want even older RPGs, we've finished up the Might and Magic article, covering all nine games in the main series. Look for more computer RPG articles in the near future!
Our Spotlight Article is for Dead or Alive, which recently saw a new-ish entry on the 3DS, and will apparently be getting a fifth installment soon. Your Weekly Kusoge is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the iOS, a shamefully bootlegged product that made it past Apple's ace product approval squad and stayed there until the blogosphere discovered it. Of course, those guys didn't play the game and just quoted the few user reviews on the App Store - we hear at HG101 took the bullet for our readers and spent the $5 on it, just so you could mock it with us!
Also, the video game music poll finished up last week. You can check out the preliminary results here, breaking down the top 1000 tracks, although in another week or two we'll have a proper article that isn't just a forum post with Youtube links. The gist is, according to our readers, the two best video game songs of all time are Time's Scar (the opening theme) from Chrono Cross, and Dr. Wily Stage 1 & 2 from Mega Man 2.
