Jethro Tull ruins Dark Souls II trailer

1 min read
49

It all starts off well enough. We have the narration from that same creepy blind woman telling us that we’ll lose ourselves, become less than human and more than mortal. You know, the usual foreboding in a Dark Souls trailer that we’ve come to know and love. Then, the music kicks off with some awesome Jethro Tull’s Locomotive Breath. Problem is, it makes Dark Souls seem far too upbeat – it’s almost like a Rocky montage. Sure, it’s a great song and the lyrics work well, but it’s just way too upbeat.

That said, we do get some fantastic images of the impressive battles that we can look forward to in the latest Dark Souls game. We even see someone casually twirling what appears to be Grant – no small feat considering it required 50 strength and 30 faith to wield in Dark Souls. Nice to see that someone is strong enough to just swirl it casually with one hand.

Dark Souls reviews have started coming in, and we only have a few short days to wait until Dark Souls 2. Are you ready for what some are calling the best RPG of the year? I’m honestly not sure if I’m prepared for the emotional strain. So much death, so much darkness. Sure, it’s all worth it in the end, but I’m just not sure if I’m really prepared to die. Maybe I need to intersperse playtime with something stupidly uplifting. Nah, I’ll just push through and feel that ridiculous sense of achievement when I’m successful. Maybe.

    It’s like the theme tune to Street Fighter IV. Too soon? 0-o

        Sure is. Loved the original by NIN but the Johnny Cash version is a lot more soulful.

    Uh….not really sure you can blame Jethro Tull for a song that first came out in 1971 (Aqualung), for being in a commercial in 2014. Ian Anderson probably didn’t lobby the developer for it’s inclusion.

    My guess is you mistakenly said Jethro Tull, when you meant Namco-Bandai ruined Dark Souls.

    Hahahaha, like a moth to a flame. This trailer is so misleading. Can’t wait for WOW or Skyrim players to come running into this game with this song in their head and then being pounded to death by the first boss!
