    The Official Dark Souls 2 thread

    Prepare to die again!!!! With this game being released on Tuesday NA I thought a thread was in order. We have so much to learn, die, get loot, die, invade, die, and have fun, then die. Looking forward to the game.

    So after playing around 20 hours I wanted people to know some bullet point differences between DS1 and DS2. This may better help if you are on the fence, or if you waiting for PC.

    -Pc is lead so DS2 suffers frame rate issues more than DS1
    -You die you become hollow and each time you die you lose a percent of health and your character looks more decayed. Yes there are rings to minimize the hp loss. Fans of Demons Souls would know this well as you chop off 50% when you die
    -You can travel to bonfire right off the bat
    -You now have healing items aside from flask
    -You int also improves casting speed
    -After a certain amount of kills (12 seems to be the number may vary) mobs will no longer respawn. You can use an item to negate this and it also buffs the difficulty
    -You can join a covent that makes the game harder
    -Atn will also add to amount of spells you can cast(not every level)
    -Casting spells consumes stamina
    -You do not level up at bonfire instead talk to a lady to level up(fans of Demons Souls will be familer with this)
    -You start out with 1 estus and will gain more by finding estus shards
    -The discard option is just that you discard the item. To leave the item on ground use leave option
    -Hold o and press down to slide down a ladder.



    Coming to steam April 25!!!

    Lol, I remember posting an official thread long ago.

    People here seem to only like first person shooters so it died down quickly. Nevertheless, I'm absolutely stoked and have the Collectors Edition pre-orderd.

    Can't wait for it lads, I just started playing Dark Souls, and so far is the best game I've ever played, I used to play loads of d&d on my childhood, and this game just reminds me of that.

    Is there any way this is coming out for PS4? According to rumors, it's not, but I want to be wrong. Anyone know something about it coming to PS4?

    I just don't feel like turning my PS3 back on.. mainly because the switch back to the smaller controller is going to suck.
    I love my PS3, but I'm ready for the PS4!

    Any of you see THIS? Seems the lighting has been downgraded and made the game no longer look good. Kind of killed my hype at present.. feels like a bait and switch.

    Contemplating returning it and I had it preordered for a year now.

    They won't tell us anything until AFTER it's released on PS3. You know so they can score double dippers.

    I'd hold off on a PC release until reports come in. If I recall right Dark Souls PC, at least at launch, didn't have much of anything for improvements.

    Actually 6 hours after its release someone had a patch/mod for the frame rate issues. The mod community is sick.

    Not sure why you'd support shoddy porting but to each their own I guess

    Ugh.. did you have to remind me I bought that flaming pile of crap on PS3 lol

    That is one of those BS ones though, where it's only after you get like 20+ hours into you start running into MAJOR problems.

    Yeah, mine has been shipped so I will most likely have it the day after release.

    messed up some on starting area so started over, only lost two hours. Your character gets uglier as you die, but you do not seem to lose health as hollow, just portions of it like in Demons Souls. Sorcery is so much better, more along the lines of Demons Souls.

    PC version was the lead this time around so no shoddy porting.

    Also, the Souls series was never about graphics... I rather have a steady framerate thank you very much.

    Well I finally got around to writing my first impressions. I've been so busy the past few days with work and other stuff that I've only managed to play around 5 hours unfortunately, but I'm loving the game so much so far. I love all the Soul's games, so I had high expectations for DS2 and thankful I haven't been disappointed at all. I'm a Cleric and I'm pretty happy with my choice so far. All the locations I have visited so far are amazing, and I just think From has done an awesome job at once again creating a beautiful and dark world filled with lots of really well designed enemies and NPC. Also, I love how the game feels more of a blend between Dark Souls 1 and Demon's Souls instead of just a cut and paste of DS1.

    Oh and I just found out that joining the Company of Champions Covenant actually raises your difficulty and does a few other things to make the game harder. That explains so much about my playthrough so far! It's not that my game has been too hard to the point where I'm not making progress, but I definitely have thought to myself that compared to the previous games, the starting enemies are a lot tougher, and now I know why. So I think I'll leave that covenant for now, maybe that can be something for a 2nd playthrough.
