EXP Podcast #416: Dark Souls and Genre Defining Games

"Have you met my sister Quelaag?"
This week we are inspired by a Waypoint article arguing that Nioh proves that Dark Souls has created a genre. If so, what does that genre include and what should we call it? Does it bring any value to games to classify genres like this? These are important questions, but not half as important as this one: What ever happened to the Bro-Shooter?

Thanks for listening and feel free to reach out with your genre defining games!
