Borderlands 2 Gives A Pretty Elaborate Shout-Out To Dark Souls

Leave it to the new Borderlands 2 DLC, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep, to throw in at least one more good reference for the road.


The shout-out here is somewhat more substantial than an easter egg—as documented by Gamefront, it's an entire quest dedicated to Dark Souls. (Insert joke about difficulty here.) I haven't played the new DLC yet, but I'll keep an eye out for this one.

So about Dark Souls...Is there any real merit to that game beyond the difficulty? I forced myself to suffer through it, all the while expecting it to spontaneously become amazing due to all the hype surrounding it. It never did. Did I miss something? Play it wrong or something? It was probably one of the most dull games I've ever experienced.
