The Saturday Stream: The Dark Souls 2 Newbie Run

By Mike Fahey on at

In preparation for this morning's stream of Dark Souls II, I played an hour of the first Dark Souls two and a half years ago. Nothing can possibly go wrong with this plan.

Have years of mobile gaming focus dulled the skills I didn't acquire the first time around, or will my innate gamer instincts take over and win the day? Perhaps I'll just keep getting distracted by chat and fail no matter what. It's all good.

I'm trying something a little different this week, streaming directly from Nvidia's Shadowplay function on MSI's latest-and-greatest gaming laptop, the GS60 Ghost. It's got a GeForce GTX 860M GPU insdie, and since Nvidia recently updated the GeForce experience software to allow laptops to do all the cool things gaming PCs can do, here we are.

Also, if the stream is horrible, it's Nvidia's fault.

Okay, deep breath — I can do this.
