Re: Dark Souls 2

I noticed that Dark Souls 2 will be playable at the Eurogamer expo in London next month. Hence I will go to that strange city of London with the sole purpose of playing some Dark Souls 2

Re: Dark Souls 2

O ho! I hope they have a lot of booths set up, that will be a popular stand.

I may be starting NG+ on Demons (US) soon, then probably start Dark later in the year. I must take my Faith guy to the DLC I couldn't master in NG+++

My brother is starting his first NG+ in Demons, was giving him some advice earlier about doing the PWWT events first. Rekindled the urge...

Re: Dark Souls 2

I've started watching one of the guys from Cane & Rinse's SL1 run:

http://caneandrinse.com/dark-souls-a...l-1-adventure/

And I actually just went and beat the Taurus Demon on my own SL1 character just now. I am terrible though, it took me three tries and I can neither parry nor backstab. I don't think this experiment will last long.

Re: Dark Souls 2

How did your SL1 experiment turn out? I'm still stuck at four kings and after that I'd just need Gwyn and my SL1 run would be complete.

Dark Souls 2 multiplayer beta seems to have started. I'm currently resisting the temptation to gather too much information about the game, since I want to come into DS2 as 'fresh' as possible

Re: Dark Souls 2

Ha ha, I haven't been playing it because a) I was going on holiday and b) I may have messed it up.

The only real Big Bad I killed so far is Ornstein & Smough (and how sweet that was!), but I'm down in Lost Izalith now. I joined the spider covenant and opened the shortcut down there, but then I got a bit carried away and went straight through to Bed of Chaos. I've cut off one of her arms at this point.

The issue may be: I didn't kill the Flame Demon (the flying vanguard-type thing) or the Centipede, so I didn't hook up with Solaire at that bonfire over there. I was thinking I would just go around to him through the dinosaurs but of course I have no Charred Ring to get through the lava! I'm wondering whether he will still be there if I kill Bed of Chaos? Or even if he is still there now?

If I don't talk to him there, he won't appear at Gwynn, I believe, and I have zero chance of taking that fight without him.

Maybe I will try those bosses today and see if he is still around.

Did you go and see the DSII demo?

Re: Dark Souls 2

Gwyn is harmless, as long as you can Katie. I mean parry. I had Solaire with me some times with Gwyn and he wasn't that much help, especially since summoning a NPC increases his Gwyn's health and mostly just makes the fight longer.

I didn't manage to get to the EG expo, since too much work-related nonsense piled up that week without warning, making it pretty much impossible to just enjoy an afternoon chasing demons. Well, I guess I'll see it on March 14th. I pre-ordered the PS3 collectors edition.

Bell Keepers guard twin bells, a symbol of the bond between two lovers who could not be united. Members of this Covenant are automatically summoned into another player’s world when they enter an area with a bell and their goal is defeat the approaching player.
Sounds a bit odd.

I won't be doing any multiplayer anyway. I hear they have made it much harder to backstab, and easier to summon, so there's that.

Various questions regarding Dark Souls 2 answered. No story spoilers, mostly answers and clarifications regarding combat mechanics and game design.

Re: Dark Souls 2

Hmm, I'm kinda observing a blackout on this (after all, this day two weeks we'll be well immersed in it, all going well). I watched the first question about 'disappointments' - I guess the fast travel could mean that the levels are linear and aren't joined together using that 'verticality' we're used to. A shame if so, but not a real cause for alarm. Torn whether to watch the rest...

Re: Dark Souls 2

I guess everyone is too immersed to post first impressions.

I just made my character and went through the training type area.

In true fashion for me, I created a character, played for about a half hour, decided that I didn't like how my character looked, then reset my entire game.

I am okay with my new character although they are all goofy looking.
