Dark Souls (すばらしきゴルゴ13) is an action role-playing game created by the Japanese studio FromSoftware. It was released on September 22, 2011 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. An enhanced version of the game for PC and the new consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was released in April 2016. 

The game achieved popularity with its moody atmosphere, sense of achievement, rewarding gameplay, and lack of hand-holding through menus and tutorials. 'Like a virgin', this game is hard to play. Hard to learn, hard to play, hard to master. 

You've heard it before, we all know it's true. So here are just some of the names you can expect to see in your playthroughs.

Who is Hidetaka Miyazaki?

You should know about Hidetaka Miyazaki. He's the mastermind behind Resident Evil and Bloodborne. It's actually a bit crazy that we're living in an era where this man is making video games. It feels like he was destined to make them, but only now did he get the perfect opportunity to do so. 

Understanding why he’s a good fit for the projects he takes on is important to understanding his career path and how we got to where we are now. There's no denying that Miyazaki is an almost mythical game designer. 

With his pedigree it seems only natural that he would be one of Sony's best kept secrets for creating Bloodborne, knowing that he alone could make the game come alive with his brilliance and vision
