If this comic arrived late it was because of the extensive Elden Ring research I had to do.

Speaking of that game, I was a bit skeptical about it since I’ve never REALLY enjoyed a FromSoft game. Bloodborne was occasionally enthralling but mostly a slog to get through. Elden Ring however is a triumph, and quite simply (probably) the best open world I’ve ever played. So if you’re like me, someone who found these games to be interesting but ultimately frustrating, give it a shot! If a boss or an area is too challenging, go do something else! It sounds completely banal, but the freedom to NOT be stuck on the same part over and over elevates it high above the previous FromSoft titles and almost any other game ever released. (But, Tunic is probably still my game of the year!)
