I really hope Croshaw ends up reviewing Dark Souls 2, if only so he can understand the nature of it's appeal, which is the same as problem gambling. Each failure teases the ego, which causes the player to become more and more convinced that triumph and grand achievement is just within his grasp.
He did say on the last Escapist Expo that after watching a few playthroughs online, he finally understood the appeal of the game, but he didn't have the patience to play it himself. So I guess he probably won't make a video review of it. At best, he'll make a short commentary like he did here.
