Dark Souls 2's Crown of the Old Iron King DLC feels like Dark Souls 1

The best part about a Souls title isn't beating the game — it's beating the system.

The series' entries are enormously difficult by design, so every advantage, every leg-up you could find in their unforgiving worlds was cause for celebration. Dark Souls 2's newest DLC, Crown of the Old Iron King, gives you more opportunities to exploit the environment and enemy logic than the base game ever did — and wow, are you going to need them. Check out the Overview above to watch Dave and I play through a bit of the DLC, and share some insight on how to not die as much as we have.
