Dark Souls 2
 
I'm waiting for the PC MASTER RACE version but this just came out for consoles a few days ago. Anyone here playing it? If not, you should. I mean, what's wrong with you?



Actual gameplay:



For those not in the know, this is the series that is famous for being unforgivingly difficult and one in which you are bound to die a lot. But if you played the last game, you know how fun and rewarding it is. :techman:

I think you can pick up the previous game pretty cheaply now. Be warned that the PC port of Dark Souls isn't that great and is virtually unplayable without a gamepad, though.

DS2 comes out for PC April 25th.

I'm currently playing the PC MASTER RACE version on my living-room gaming PC.

With DSFix installed, it's actually a perfect port. It looks positively gorgeous rendered in native 1080p on our huge LED TV and plays fantastically with my 360 gamepad.

Looking forward to trying out DS2 :techman:

That's true, DSFix makes it a lot better.

I snagged the first one on the Steam sale for like 6 bucks. I have Demon's Souls on PS3 but didn't play it more than an hour. I'm sure I'd love these games but DS2 is going to have to wait for bargain bin treatment as well. I'm a little obsessive about playing stuff in order, so even though I suppose Demon's Souls is technically a different franchise I feel like I need to start there.

Right now I'm so addicted to Titanfall the backlog is only getting longer. I just looked up the developer since I never got into these Souls games and wanted a little more background. They did King's Field? I loved that game back in the day. Got stuck though and never finished. I'm glad they stayed afloat and seem to have perfected that style of RPG. My interest is definitely a bit more piqued now than when I loaded up this thread.

No one ever says Demon's Souls is worth playing, and each DS games stands on its own. I think you can be forgiven this one time. ;)

I haven't played a Dark Souls game yet, but what's wrong with Demon's Souls?

Nothing. It's a great game.

I'd agree with Robert insofar as it isn't required to play Demon's Souls before Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 in terms of story.

In terms of gameplay though it is certainly well worth playing!

Yeah, I'm not saying Demon's Souls is bad (I haven't played it so I don't know), but that if you're going to bother, you might as well go with Dark Souls or DS2.

Oh, okay. I understand you now. When you said "No one ever says Demon's Souls is worth playing" I thought you meant that people hated the game.

No, just more that it's been eclipsed by Dark Souls, so it seems almost redundant to play it now. Sorry! :)

27 hours into Dark Souls, Gaping Dragon is down and I'm having the time of my life.

About to become my 2014's 2011 Game of the Year, I'm calling it. :techman:

I also just started playing Dark Souls. I have died a lot. I think I'm getting the hang of it, though.

It's weirdly addicting. Each time I die, I just start going again and before you know it the weekend is over.

Sitting at work, thinking 'bout some Souls. Man, I could really go for some right about now.

It really gets into your head, doesn't it?

SPCTRE March 17 2014 05:09 PM

Re: Dark Souls 2
 
Yeah it does. Goddamnit.

I mean, I knew fully well what I was getting into after watching the guys at Giant Bomb playing and talking about it, but still... damn.
