i thought DS was perfect i love difficult, rewarding games.
after like a year i stil only got to lvl 350.

You do realize you're not really expected to level that high right?

An optimal build caps out at about 120-130 (which is also where the PVP range is)

Leveling that high makes the game a cake-walk.
GrandpaSnake  +   666d ago
i actually though that 350 was perfect i had some of the best battles at that level i have another at 450 too and the battles are amazing and they last forever. I was trying to start a 350 pvp lvl cap since demon souls about 20 players got down, but it never picked up.
Swiggins  +   666d ago
Haha, well, can't blame you for trying.

My only problem with builds going that high is that there's literally nothing you cannot do. You're a master of all trades.

If you cap a build at 120 or 130 you're much more specialized, but no less deadly. It forces you to adopt a playstyle that fits that build.

It also promotes creating more builds, which is always a good thing. :)

Not everybody plays the game with PvP in mind.

If your not supposed to level that high then why the hell do they allow it.
Also if you have bought all the gear you need wth are you supposed to spend all those souls on seems a waste to just throw souls away.

Definitely faster paced but im still on the fence on whether or not that is good or bad as i don't want it to feel arcady. The graphics seem to have a boost and i love that the mp seemed to be flawless and no significant frame rate drops.

I better get into the beta!!!!! in N.A.

No reason to get next gen consoles with Dark Souls 2 coming out.
Swiggins  +   666d ago
Yup, there's so many good games on the current gen still coming out that I can easily wait for the next gen to have a price drop or a really good bundle.
PurpHerbison  +   665d ago
Or more games. As of right now, there are no games that scream, "Play me!". At least to me.
This looks incredible!!. The graphical enhancements look to be pretty significant from the first Dark Souls game. The enemies look far more detailed and their animations and attacks are more complex. I think this looks like it has the potential to be better than the first DS. The enemies and bosses were some of the best things about both Demon and Dark Souls and this has definitely upped the ante. I am looking forward to seeing more of this.

Edit: I am so glad that Motoi Sakuraba is back composing for Dark Souls 2. I was worried at first that they would get someone else to compose since it looked at first like they wanted to change the overall feel of the game but I am now happy to know that is not the case. The music from the boss fight was beautiful and I can't wait to hear more.

Watching some of these videos totally brings my confidence up in the series. It has the atmosphere of demon souls and seems like its smooth like demon souls too while keeping the combat and openness of dark souls (though I still like the nexus a lot). A lot of small things that I like too, such as seeing which item comes next in your hot button and the return of healing items on top of flasks. Menus look better too. Magic is heading back toward the better Demon soul system (just no mana bar). Boss seem to be though about again not only cool looking but it'll take brains and stratagy to win (like demon souls) instead of the hit and run of dark souls

I truly exited for this. Both Demon and Dark Souls were amazing in gameplay, story, level and moster design. This really seems like the happy marriage of both games.

I'm sorry you feel that way.

Because you're obviously wrong and now I can laugh at you from a position of smug superiority!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I'm NOT watching that! I don't want any more spoilers, seen too much already :-\
PurpHerbison  +   663d ago
I watched a little bit then stopped. I'm trying my best not to spoil games before they come out. N4G is the worst for spoilers. Sometimes the spoiler is the title name.
