Weapon Packs?? In a Souls game?? No thanks...

Beginner items generally suck, it's inconsequential.

I guess it doesn't really look like 'beginner' items, as you will be able to find them throughout the rest of the game.

So you might not even be able to use the because you're level won't be high enough.

I know what you mean. I don't want to get the impression that I paid for an early advantage in a game where challenge is everything.

Good thing they are still available later in the game to those who didn't pre-order. And they most likely wont be that strong. Weapons in Dark Souls are almost all comparable. Some people still PvP with plain upgraded longswords

Swiggins1619d ago

Yeah but to be fair, those people typically don't last very long...

Agree. Pre-order 'bonuses' in general are cancerous (especially so in a Souls game). Not as evil as the way post release revenue is disguised as legitimate DLC though.

Can't pre-order PC because we don't have a date. MF!

I really wanna get PC Dark Souls 2, but I was wondering... how much of a problem are hackers in DS1?

LAWSON721619d ago

I have not faced any invader that was hacked. Then again I have not really witnessed any online hacks in my 1 and a half years of playing games on PC

Swiggins1619d ago

I hear varying reports, some say it's not that bad to non-existent.

Some say it's every other invader, my friend who plays Dark Souls on PC is in the latter category, take that for what it's worth.

Since it's getting released (at least somewhat) along side the console version, it'll probably be more closely monitored and evened out.

I couldn't play Dark Souls on anything but a console though...the community is what makes it (not saying that the PC community is bad, but it IS much smaller)

LAWSON721619d ago (Edited 1619d ago )

Hopefully PC version will not have any of this garbage,with no one getting anything early. If not should not be a big deal because DS weapons were usually comparable= and these are supposedly obtainable.

Good thing i pre ordered back in December.

Sharius1619d ago

if namco plan to bring monthly DLC to souls game, then they are playing the dangerous card, i support DS1 DLC because i think it worth but never monthly DLC in DS2

the idea of miyazaky don't develop is turn me off enough for this game

darren_poolies1618d ago

Monthly DLC, where the hell did you get that from?
