    After years of waiting impatiently, ZeniMax’s latest rival to World of Warcraft’s MMO throne is out now. I donned my bow and quiver, stuck some novelty ears on the side of my head and embarked on my mighty quest in The Elder Scrolls Online.

    There are few truly excellent indie games out there, in my opinion. Too many are simply bland and uninteresting, or rip-offs of existing successes. I say this without meaning to disparage those developers that make original works: hell, I’m a writer and I harbour no illusions of being anywhere near “talented”. Whether it’s amateur novels or my standard games journalism fare, there’s a difference between what I can produce and what is well-received by the masses. Sometimes, this is simply due to noise – like indie games, there are just far too many articles out there for every author to be noticed.

    So even if you make a cracker of a game, chances are slim that it’s going to get the attention it deserves. Luckily, there are some that make it through the storm to bask in the clement weather of public adoration. One such game is FTL: Faster Than Light.

    From the moment that I first heard about it – saw the first trailer for it – I have been eager to play Goat Simulator. On the 1st of April, my wait was over. I loaded up Steam and downloaded my pre-ordered copy. Within minutes, I was up and running. I could live the dream. I could be a goat.

    In the interest of full disclosure I am going to preface this review by admitting that I never played the first Dark Souls, not even a little bit of it. Although there is some regret of never having sampled the previous entry in the series, it has in turn allowed me to approach the sequel as a fresh entity, without any preconceived notions of what to expect. So has From Software’s mercilessly difficult RPG hooked its teeth into me as it has so many others? You bet your ass it has.

    Your journey begins as you awake, a cursed being in the strange new realm known as Drangleic. Soon after creating your character, the game has a small, tutorial like area to show you the main mechanics before unleashing you into the mysterious, danger filled world and leaving you to your own devices. There is a story linked to the curse that afflicts your character and the search for a cure, but this by and large plays second fiddle to the wonderful exploration.
