Welcome, Ashen One, to another Experience Points Debrief. This week on the podcast, Scott and I eat some ember and get fired up about Dark Souls III. This is a hefty game, and it will take us both some time to complete our journey through Lothric, but we want to bring you some early thoughts on the game as we regain our footing in the Dark Souls universe. There are some tough new lessons to be learned after Bloodborne, oh yes. Namely don't stick your face in treasure chests that aren't yours.

Ah college: a place where young minds realize their potential and where young wallets are mercilessly emptied by a combination of questionable self restraint and an unfeeling academic bureaucracy. While you're out of luck if you spend your book money on booze, you might be able to pay your tuition with the very skills you have cultivated during all those hours in which you played games instead of studying. Inspired by Blizzard's recent Heroes of the Dorm college tournament, we dive into the collegiate side of eSports. Money, fame, endorsements; everything is fair game as we lament college careers we never had.

I just recently fulfilled a longtime dream of mine to visit Japan, the home place of Mario, Link, and whatever those creepy anime masks things are. It's a place I've visited in anime and games since I was a child, so there's something surreal about visiting a new but familiar landscape. This week on the show, we discuss our gaming ties to Japan and why cultural experiences through gaming are important.
