Has anybody picked this up yet? I'm thinking of getting back on Demon's Souls, and growing a vagina in order to do more than 1-1.
>> No.37026  
...If you find out how to grow a vagina, please let us know.
>> No.37031  
I've been playing most of today. It's harder than Demon's Souls for sure, so it's pretty much excellent.
>> No.37066  
Beat Asylum Demon tutorial boss with just the broken sword and got his mace. Took me 3 hours but I'm happy.
>> No.37069  
I thought I was pretty decent, seeing as I could beat 1-1 without trouble, and get to the Tower Knight without too much difficulty. I killed all the crossbowers, and started shooting the TK. Eventually I ran out of arrows (I'll have to buy ten shitloads of those), so I started meleeing him, running between his legs to evade frontal attacks. Sadly I got stuck, and he OHKO'd me, robbing me of 2-3500 souls. Fuck that guy.

Having a good time, though I have to admit most the boss fights are much easier than I expected. Except 2 in particular.

Executor+Dragon Slayer, and Gravelord Nito. Esspecially Nito. My god I don't see how that is possible without having high endurance and stacking heavy armor with poise.

And no, I'm using a guide. I guess knowing everything works from Demons Souls helps.
>> No.37085  
Some of the cheaper tricks from Demons Souls don't work any longer though. No more letting an enemy reset to repeatedly backstab it (ala the Old King from 1-1), no more invincibility while rolling. Timing L2 seems to be easier though, which is nice.
>> No.37090  

Thiss is how I kill the blue-eyed knights. I just shoot them, run, and repeat. Fucking wanderer class.
>> No.37092  
There are still invincibility frames on dodging. However, if you get hit after them and you're still in the roll animation, it counts as a critical hit.

I've got a weird technical problem on the PC version.
I'm getting input delays of up to 4 or 5 seconds, but only as one off problems. Like I'll hit the trigger for a heavy attack and nothing will happen, so I move around as if I hadn't pushed the button, then a few seconds later the attack will execute. I'm using a 360 pad, which might be the problem, but it's never for the same button and it happens sporadically.
Is this a known issue, or should I buy a new pad?
>> No.42563  
after a lot of times failing i finally managed to beat that big asshole Capra Demon, and it was pretty easy this time
>> No.42564  
Sounds to me like a simple bug. I'd stick to the pad. Have you tried playing without the pad? If the problem still persists, it's a bug, if not, it might be because you're playing with the pad. It's still probably not the fault of your specific pad, though.
>> No.42565  
Capra demon is one of those fights that if you survive the first 5 seconds you should be good. Fuck dogs, man.

Is it possible to be over-levelled on your first run through? I'm SL ~75 and just poise/tanked through 4 Kings and Seath while chugging the odd Cestus+3, and Sif was a total pushover.

I haven't played more than 2 seconds with keyboard and mouse, I'm not that much of a masochist.
>> No.42572  
I've always wondered about the lore in this game, mostly about where the fuck it all comes from. Most NPCs barely even tell you their name, let alone anything about their backstory, yet on the wikis there are reams of information and sweeping theories about things that the game (at least in my experience) doesn't even begin to touch upon. I feel that I'm not getting the most out of this game by missing all this plot and story.
>> No.42573  
I really like the way Dark Souls tells its story. There main story is from the serpent and the intro movie. But the rest of the story is there, but you have to pay attention to the minor details. Some of the lore isn't in the game but most of it is.
>> No.42575  
I agree, the minimalistic way of exposing the story and lore of Dark Souls was a very, very good move. I'm so tired of talking to NPCs and getting lore fucking vomited all over me. I know nerds love memorizing the birthdays of every elf king or whatever, but why can't I just explore and discover something by myself without having some random douche yell "HAY HERO THERE'S SOME DORF RUINS WITH DRAGONS DOWN THERE AND VERY DANGEROUS BUT THERE'S TREASURE MAYBE??? *NUDGE NUDGE WINK*" at me. Or even worse: having an arrow or compass-thingie point out exactly where I'm supposed to go.
I mean, where did the mystery go? God damn.
>> No.42581  
You're pretty high level, yeah. But that's also the key to the 4 kings fight. Looks scary at first, but once you figure it out, it's pretty simple.

Read every item description, talk to ever NPC whenever something happens.

12 minutes of Dark Souls 2 gameplay.

4 mins of gameplay, 7 mins of the three dudes sitting on a couch.

and that's if you count the guy standing still with the camera moving around as gameplay.

I liked the part with the falling rope bridge. In any other game, that would have been some dumb, overblown scripted sequence. In Dark Souls, you just fucking die.

Hopefully it won't have GfWL this time.
>> No.45292  
I didn't even have any particularly bad experiences with GFWL. I'm sure other people have, but it could've been worse.
>> No.45304  
I can't run it at more than 15fps once I get to undead burg. I think my shitty processor bottlenecks it, since the recommended spec is dual 2.6ghz and mine is quad 2.2
It's a shame. I hope the second one will be better optimized.
>> No.45307  
>In terms of network, again, there will be follow-up information, but because this game is going to be server-based now, we hope to implement new aspects into the game that can be done only because it’s server-based.
I guess that means no GFWL. Rejoice.

Woke up hungover on Sunday and decided to finally get past Flamelurker, started a new game and have barely died to anything. Just endgame to go now.
I guess DaS made me a lot better at Souls games in general.

Also fuck the swamp forever, just thinking about having to go through 5.2 again means I'll probably not run through the game again for a very long time.

Well Allant has a metric fuckton of HP, but other than that he was a pushover. I'd hate to fight him in NG+!
Having played both now I reckon DaS is the better of the two, but obviously couldn't have happened without DeS coming first. Both are solid as hell though.
