Gameranx: "FromSoftware wants its players to suffer through Dark Souls 2 with the implementation of death penalties."
More emphasis on PvP, I knew they would find a way to screw the game up..
wtf. to my knowledge everyone loved pvp. lmao. I'm sure they didn't make it any worse.
No, there were a lot of people who wanted the option to turn off invasions..
im just guessing here but im sure u can just not log into psn or xbox live that should allow u to play offline...
Just remain dead and no one will invade your game. This is how it worked in the last Dark Souls.
Turn off invasions in DARK SOULS? Lol, are you kidding me? ANY true Demon's Souls/Dark Souls fan LOVES that aspect of the game. If you casual kiddies can't take it, this is the wrong game for you.
XboxFun In Dark Souls 2 you can get invaded while undead now, but apparently there is a covenant that protects you from invasions
Yes the pvp sucked it ruined the whole game it never function properly. Demon SOULS played better than dark souls and the backstab was bad for the game in dark souls. Demon SOULS pvp was much is better than dark souls and pvp were the same level of the players.
@brodychet You don't speak for everybody. And yes, emphasis on PvP makes it worse. @Reverent Why does enjoying a challenging game have to include dealing with the a**holes that invade it?
Pvp is a huge piece of the souls games. As long as you don't invade you have a low chance of being invaded. Demon souls had the soul tendencies for your rate and dark souls I just didn't invade and was never invaded (unless in someone else's world). I made a pvp char, invaded and that's all that I had happen. Don't like it don't invade, simple, and the rare times you do...know the map and how to use it against them. I always have a coop char and a pvp char. Coop char rarely gets invaded.
I'd love to see evidence that there were "a lot of people" who wanted the option to turn off one of the coolest things about the series. Since I love the series, I'll be nervous about the possibility of them screwing it up until I actually play it, but this doesn't qualify as a reason to give up and declare the game a failure.
@psychotica If you don't want pvp just play offline. No one forces you to go online! Personally I liked the pvp aspects of the game so I'll be online.
I don't really mind this, but I hope they improve some of the online mechanics, like making it a lot harder to get a back-stab.
Pvp was great and if you didn't want it you just play offline,Smh. Music to my wars, more online focuss and harder, yessss There goes another 200 plus hours of my life gone,, soon lol
Love everything about this game. I really do hope they get rid of that back stab. I remember playing and just me and the opponent running around in circles trying to back stab each other. Anyways, can't wait for this game to release.
anyone know when the beta going to be open for NA?
I love Souls games. But if Dark Souls 2 is all emphasis on backstabs and wrath of the gods spam, then I will def play offline :) Backstab and WOTG is overpowered!
Wrath Spam is really easy to counter if you get your roll timing right. I hardly ever get hit by it anymore. Backstab fishing is annoying but easy enough to counter and even punish. Dark Bead spam though....fuck that.
Demons souls played better than dark souls and the backstab was not over powerful all people do was running around game back stabbing. Demons souls pvp was much better than dark souls and worked it was harder to summon in dark souls. Dark souls had frame rates was not as good as demons souls.
Yeah...no... Demons Souls had an incredibly abused magic system that was damn near gamebreaking (everybody and their grand-dad had second chance). Ganking was also incredibly common in Demons Souls, as it is in Dark Souls. You're also kidding yourself if you think that Demons Souls wasn't absolutely rife with lagstabbers. Backstab fishing might not have been AS common, but it was still very VERY prevalent.
That's cause demons had dedicated severs, dark did not. But dark souls 2 will, so pvp should be much improved.
Please... PLEASE, just add a option IN THE GAME to select an offline mode.
