Love it. Since it is so close to Dark Souls, yet more accessible I do believe this game will become more popular than the first. Good to see that veterans will find what they are looking for and new players will be more likely to play past those first trying few hours.
I hope that these new players will play Dark Souls II, love it, and be so intrigued that they then go play (or perhaps try again) the previous 2 Souls games.
