Dark Souls Catch-All

Beat the first DLC boss, then dropped my SunBros sign and helped others with him twice. Fun times! Haven't co-oped in a while, still love it!

I'm constantly amazed by the variety of builds that players use in Dark Souls. I've been summoned into the Sanctuary Garden fight four times now. One host used a bow the entire time! I don't know why, but I'd assumed a bow was really not suitable as a main weapon in this game, and certainly not for boss fights. I know there's a Hunter class you can start with, but I wrote that off as I do the Thief class as not a "real" build. But it looks like I was wrong!

Sequel trailer played during the VGAs. Commence rejoicement.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Dark Souls II. (kotaku video)

Double posting for enthusiasm.

YAY! I think it's safe to say that at this point the Souls series is my favorite game series of the last 5 years. The main equipment from the trailer looked sweet.

Hopefully we get to fight more dragons.

HO
LEE
$HIT.

That's my reaction to the news; now I've got to go find the trailer. I'm DVRing the VGAs.

On the one hand, I want a sequel. On the other, I'd love for it to be next-gen, because of all the slowdown.

Holy crap.

Damn, Joystiq had the trailer, but it was taken down.

It's not really that interesting. A lot like the original Dark Souls trailer. No gameplay, just a lot of cool scenery. Looked beautiful though, would not be surprised to find out it's next-gen.

I would triple dip for Dark Souls 2.

Thanks!

I think I agree with Blue. The trailer is not very interesting. The news is what's exciting. Hopefully we'll get a press release tomorrow or soon.

Part of me agrees, but the other part knows I will probably not be getting a next gen console until a while after release, and I'm doubtful this will come to PC until long after the consoles (if at all). I just want to be sure I'm able to play it.

Regardless, I'M PUMPED!

It's announced for PS3, 360 and PC from the outset, apparently.

I shall now borrow an animated gif from the Far Cry 3 thread to properly express my feelings at this:

Result. Guess the PC sales convinced.

Wow, great news. I haven't bought a game day one in ages, I can easily make an exception for this.

Shaaaawing.

If it's a straight pc port with crap resolution and refresh, I'll pre-order it day 1. If it's a real port with at least 1080/60 plus controller support, I'll buy two copies. IF they give me 1440/120 plus controller support, I'll take three just to say thanks!

Hot damn count me in the line day one.

Also another spot to see the trailer...

Embedded.

Huh, it's not next-gen. Kind of makes me want to get it on PC then.

How advanced do you want it to be? PC is 10 generations beyond consoles...

I just beat the last boss I had left in the DLC with my lvl 5 Knight! Name of the boss spoilered:

Spoiler:

Black Dragon Kalameet

I had to reduce my equipment load to gain some mobility for the fight. I ended up taking off my Fang Boar Helm +5 and Knight Armor +9. I ended up with 110 physical defense. I did have extra weight from equipping a claymore that I didn't use. In the end my equip load was 24.9/60. The weapon I did end up using was my Fire Longsword +10. I was hitting for around 40 dmg per hit when one handed. The best combo I could manage was a three hit two handed normal, normal, strong that took off 190ish dmg. That combo took about two hash marks off of the bosses health.

I came into the fight with 20 Estus +5 and almost every attack that I didn't avoid took at least half of my health. When I won I only had 190/790 HP and 0 Estus left.

I only have the last boss in the game left and I don't expect to have any problems with him.

Let's not ruin this thread with this kind of stuff.

Is it wrong that I am almost as excited for the prospect of another strategy guide as I am the game itself? That guide sure is purty. I still thumb through it from time to time.

Congrats, man. That is one hell of an accomplishment.
