Don’t Worry. It Looks Like Dark Souls 2 Will Be As Hard As Its Predecessors

Kotaku reports: "Dark Souls II, the sequel to the notoriously difficult action RPG, Dark Souls (which was a sequel to the phonetically tongue twisting Demon's Souls) has been announced for the PS3, the Xbox 360, and the PC. One of the more shocking announcements to fans of the previous games was that director Hidetaka Miyazaki would be stepping down and handing the director's chair to Tomohiro Shibuya. While Miyazaki will remain on board as supervisor, this has led many fans to worry if the sequel will remain at its core, true to its predecessors...." (Dark Souls 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

That doesn't worry me, I found the other 2 games pretty easy.

Well thank you!
You just have to get used to the game and the rest is pretty easy

People wrongfully call it a difficult game...it is just punishing -_-

Thing is, games now-a-days are too easy, and also dark souls does a terrible job of explaining how to play. You need the wiki to understand every game mechanic. I think combat is no harder than the witcher in hard or dark mode.
Still it's a great game with an awesome level design (reminds me of super metroid). Certainly one of my favs.

Demon's Souls and Dark Souls aren't necessarily "hard" per say, they are just 100% unforgiven for any error, mistake, poor decision or lack of situational awareness. I think this can be very frustrating more so than challenging, but if you have the patience, you will be rewarded with an incredible gaming experience.

They are as difficult as the player makes them to be.

But to keep from explaining all this shit it's best to just call it hard
