Like Dark Souls, But Spookier: The Steam Stream Plays Malebolgia

SteamedSteamedSteamed is dedicated to all things in and around Valve’s PC gaming service.

Malebolgia is best described as Dark Souls, except gorgeously cel-shaded and spooky as hell. I hope it’s as good as it looks. Watch me play it below.

Also on the docket for today’s stream: Karmaflow, a rock opera video game with involvement from a surprising number of metal stars, and a game where you’re a goddamn sperm. And maybe a Witcher 2 mod I’ve been playing to stave off my Witcher 3 cravings. Also maybe-maybe Wolfenstein: The Old Blood if I stick around long enough, because this is the last thing I have to do for work today, so even though I wouldn’t normally stream a game Everyone On Earth knows about, fuck it.

Watch below. And feel free to click over to Twitch and join the chat. Everyone’s super cool in there, I promise! (No seriously, I don’t know how I managed to pull it off either.)


Update: Stream’s over, but you can watch a recording here. Malebolgia was kinda not great, but Karmaflow really surprised me. Solid enough platforming fused with musical puzzles and rad rock opera moments. Yes, please.

The Steam Stream is a marathon of recently released Steam games that airs every Wednesday afternoon. The goal? To help you sift through the ceaseless avalanche that is Steam’s “new releases” section in a quick, easily digestible fashion. If you hate the unbridled havoc of moving pictures and prefer slow, easy-going words, fear not: each of these games will also get brief write-ups that will explain why you should (or shouldn’t) care about them.

Wow Karmaflow sounds awesome, I used to love Sonata Arctica and Arch Enemy, been more of a hip hop head these days, but I would love to revisit all those bands they mentioned. Anyone checked it out yet?
