It won’t be available in stores until March 11, but you can pre-order the Dark Souls II Collector’s Edition Guide now from Amazon. Doing so cuts the cost by nearly ten dollars (not mentioning shipping). Inside includes area walkthroughs, multiplayer/co-op details, enemy analysis, lore index and more — probably even info on achievements. You don’t have to buy it if you think it’s the easy way out. Some people enjoy learning about the game through experience. Still, the hardcover book does look pretty and is guaranteed to make you less frustrated when playing. Dark Souls II comes out the same day the book will in stores.
