The previous thread got lost in the archive, so here it is.

 

Here's what we know about Dark Souls 2 so far

  • Its a direct sequel sorty-wise
  • You can still be invaded even when you're Hollow
  • Each time you die, your base HP goes down by 10%, and will continue until its at 50%. You can regain it when you're Human again
  • Invasions are now based on not only your Soul Level, but your playtime and how many souls you've collected
  • Dual-wielding and Archery builds seem to be much more viable now
  • There's a stat-reset button, making build experimentation much more flexible
  • You have 4 Ring slots now
  • There's a ring that allows voice chat

Dark Souls is a game I've really wanted to get into for the art style alone. Also, what's the difference between Dark Souls and Demon Souls?

There's a lot of differences. It's hard to go over them all because damn they're different. One of the main ones though is that Demons Souls punishes you much harder for dying. Dark Souls is a completely connected world for the most part, while Demons Souls is separated into different levels. Dark Souls has a lot more exploration in that sense.

 

 

Also, fuck that voice chat ring, that's the last thing I need for someone to have when they invade me.

Voice chat only works if you have the ring on yourself. If you don't and the other player player does, you won't hear anything.

You know what I want? An arena like the one in the Oolacile DLC, except instead of fighting 3 other players, include a co-op mode where you have to work together to kill enemies and arena-exclusive bosses. I'm sure some "purists" would be adamant against the idea of including a mode where you can just cut loose and have fun with your friends in a game where the atmosphere is supposed to be lonely and depressing, but screw them I say.

I'm hoping for better netcode. Hell, they have to perfect it if you can get invaded while hollow.

 

I'm also looking forward towards more viable sets.

Sweet. I'm mostly just happy that I finally know, I've been putting off playing any new games in case the release date was sooner since Dark Souls 2 will inevitably take up all my gaming time once it's out.

My pre-order will be coming around Thursday, so I've got a week until then to finish up whatever I'm playing and watching right now, because I know once I get it all of my free time will just cease to exist for a few weeks. Next weekend is gonna be good.

 

My assumption is that nearly everyone will be getting the PS3/PC versions, correct? I might end up getting the PC version once it dwindles down in price (and if I like the game) months from now, and if it's handled much better than the Dark Souls port originally was, which, seeing as though Games For Windows isn't the main platform, is already looking much better.

Yeah I'll be getting the PC version. Might even get that collector's edition, but then again, money. I'm mostly excited to play online at the release, when everyone else is still trying to figure out the game and all it's tricks. Never got that experience before.

Yeah, I've only had the displeasure of playing the Souls games way after they've been out, so everyone I've encountered already knew the game in-and-out. Knowing that I'll be in the same boat as everyone else, and that there won't be enemy and boss strategies on the internet for me to look at in my many moments of weakness is just making me more excited.

 

I can only hope for another experience like finding Ash Lake for the first time.

 

Please give me another Ash Lake experience, From.

Playing a Souls game on release day is a great experience, no doubt. There's nothing like looking up how to beat a boss, only to find that literally everyone else has the same problem with no solution, and everyone sharing their surprises and experiences. Its just awesome.

Since the old thread got archived could you make this a Souls general?

 

I beat Dark Souls the other day, what an incredible game. There's just so much depth to it that I wouldn't be surprised if there are still secrets that haven't been found. I think the biggest surprise for me while playing the game was realizing it was a Metroidvania. I always thought it was sectioned off into different levels like Demon's Souls was but learning that everything was connected with each other was a really cool moment for me and I applaud the level design and planning that went into making the world. I think the biggest flaw with the game is that it's not always really clear on certain mechanics and what to do. If I wasn't watching a Let's Play of it I probably would have been way overwhelmed like I was with DeS and stopped playing. Still, once you've figured everything out it's a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Except the Bed of Chaos. That part was horseshit.

 

Super excited for Dark Souls 2. My brother got the Black Armor Edition for his birthday so I'll probably play that to tide me over until the PC release. It's a huge shame that the artbook and soundtrack and all the other extras are digital, and doesn't come with the sweet statue, but I'll just get that stuff on ebay later on I suppose. I really hope Dual Swordsman is a viable playstyle because I want that swishy coat so badly.
