Choosing between picking up RAGE or Dark Souls on release was the toughest decision I have ever faced in my privileged white middle class life. In the end though I finally had to choose Dark Souls. The original Demon's Souls was the greatest game ever made, and if Ghostbusters 2 has taught me anything, it's that sequels are always better than the originals.
Also, if you pre-order Dark Souls you get a free upgrade to the collector's edition. Which is, pardon my french, really frigging cool. So if you're planning on getting it on release day, it's worth going in this week and plunking down the five bucks to reserve a copy. Need motivation? Here, have a new trailer.
