Dark Souls II Playthrough Ep 2: Forest of Fallen Giants, Cardinal Tower, & Cale

The Need Humanity playthrough series looks to introduce newer players to Dark Souls II, help them with general mechanics, find items, and help with bosses. GameZone’s own Andrew trudges through  through Drangleic, derp around bonfires, and kills some baddies in the process.

In the second of the series, Rei II and I are ready to start our adventure. The path leads us through a heavy door into the Forest of Fallen Giants. After a Matrix-esqe hollow fight, we manage to reach the Cardinal Tower where the “True Dark Souls II Begins.” Sure I roll to my death a few times, but that’s just to get the party started right. We find Cale, agree to help, take his key, and we’re off.
