Checkpoint Intimates: The Souls-Like Conversation

Posted on May 26, 2017

Listen to the show!

Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context. On this episode, Luke and Elliot talk all about “Souls-Like” video games. Luke recently shared with us his review of The Surge, which falls under the category of a “Souls-Like”… that is, an action RPG that is intentionally quite difficult and unforgiving, often to the point of wanting to throw your controller against a wall! This style of video game has seen a real boom over the last few years, thanks in no small part to the Dark Souls franchise, which has made difficult-but-satisfying gameplay a real hero. Do you like these types of games, or do you find them too frustrating? Listen in to hear our thoughts, as we discuss whether or not we are really just gluttons for punishment.
