My inner completionist is sad
"This is Dark Souls - Die for the first time."
Perfect. The Achievements / Trophies for Dark Souls II have come out and this is not a link to click if you're one to fear spoilers. Locations, bosses, friendly characters, and covenants are made clear and it's a bit silly how much of an effect little thumbnails and vague descriptions can have on me. My imagination is running wild trying to piece together what March 11, 2014 will entail.
That said, I'm not too happy about there being Achievements tied to learning all scorceries, miracles, pyromancies, and hexes. Even if you were happily committed to multiple playthroughs, those types of goals were such a pain in Dark Souls -- with or without a checklist.
