Alessio & The Beastly Backlog: Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin

Alessio & The Beastly Backlog is an excuse for me to be held accountable for completing my massive video game backlog. These articles are a hybrid of experiential reflection, informal critical reaction to the content, and a springboard for discussion on all of our social channels. Plus, I like talking about games and what better way to kill two birds with one stone?

This series is fair game for spoiler territory, and so with that being said, if you haven’t completed the game in question and want to have a completely unhindered experience, please refrain from reading any further.

This week: Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin for the Playstation 4. It’s about damn time.

My Wife!!! #1: Never Alone

My Wife!!! is a series focused around me talking my wife, who has zero interest in games, into trying her hand at some unique interactive experiences. After her time with each game, Kristen and I will discuss what she liked about the experience, what she disliked, and her thoughts on if the game accomplished what it set out to.

This entry we’ll discuss Kristen’s time with the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PC, and Mac indie-platformer Never Alone. The game was downloaded and played on the PlayStation 4 as part of the PlayStation Plus round of free games in April of 2015.
