Demon's/Dark Souls Thread. Dark Souls II !!

MrQuotesMrQuotes WOLFFYYYYY!!!Joined: Posts: 2,025
Dark Souls is the sequel, more like successor to the highly succesful Demon's Souls. This time its Namco/Bandai picking up the publishing rights. For those who don't know what the first one was about here's the quick rundown. Now being developed for both the 360 and the PS3
The game will focus on dungeon exploring and the tension and fear that arise when players encounter enemies in this setting. The game is being called a spiritual successor to the Demon's Souls (which was a spiritual successor to the King's Field games). The player will battle using various weapons and strategies to survive in a dark fantasy world. Online features will allow players to share the play experience without need for direct communication.

There will be more weapons, spells, and no classes. It is also said to be 'significantly harder', with more enemies and more difficult encounters. It will include leaving messages to other players, seeing others' deaths, and PvP as well as a new co-op system.[3][4][5]

Game Spot First Look.

Anticipated release end of 2011.

    ^Tell me about it. I imported it a while ago, and can't really afford to buy it again to play with my friends getting the NA release.

    But all the same the game itself is fantastic if you're the hardcore RPG/dungeon crawler type and it lives up to the hype of how difficult it is as well. Without careful planning some bosses will slap you around no problem.

    Character creation is hilarious too because no matter how hard you try you cannot make your character not ugly looking. I've tried.

    I have no idea when Canada's getting this game, but I preordered it at VGP. I want to invest time in this game (and reduce my backlog), so I won't be getting Uncharted 2 right away.

    I've got this pre-ordered from VGP as well. In my experience I should be getting it today sometime actually. Also a misconception that's warding a lot of people that should probably be confirmed by someone that's already played the game, but the game isn't difficult really, it's more like you can't run around like every other action game expecting to survive for very long. Every enemy can kill you, but it's not like they have a million HP and are just hard because they're hard. If you know how to kill something, it'll die. First time in awhile, knowledge is power.

    Thinking about it, lack of open ended is a bit upsetting, new game plus softens the blow.

    Is it weird the supposed difficulty is a selling point to me though?

    No because that's the sole reason this game caught my attention and I'm sure many others. The supposed difficulty.

    Tired of good games that fall short of greatness simply because it didn't feel like a challenge and you get no satisfaction from beating it aside from perhaps enjoying the story.

    Screw this game! I'm so close to get a platinum yet I don't get a drop of a pure bladestone from the phantom skeleton.. T_T

    Anyways, I gotta post a warning for all you new peeps before you make a mistake in the game.

    This game has some "traps" that would destroy your save if you don't know about them.

    For example Yurt the NPC:
    # If you rescue Yurt, he will appear in the Nexus, and soon (after you kill another Boss or two) will start to kill other NPCs there
    # If Yurt is left alone long enough he will kill off important people in the nexus including the spell trainers and vendors.
    # To prevent Yurt from killing NPCs, kill him right after freeing him from the cage or immediately after seeing the two anonymous corpses in the Nexus.


    Also from every boss you get a boss soul which you can:
    1.Pick the option "use" to eat it and gain souls (=money)- NEVER PICK THIS OPTION! ALWAYS GO FOR #2!
    2.Convert it into a spell or a unique weapon- You can sometimes convert it into multiple things but you only get one of a kind for each "game run" so always pick the useful one!

    Let's take a look at the dilemmas I find the most important from here:
    Hard Demon's Soul

    * Boss 2-1: Armor Spider
    * Weapon
    o 2-1 Blacksmith Ed - Lava Bow
    + May be upgraded from any of:
    # Short Bow +7
    # Long Bow +7
    # Compound Short Bow +7
    # Compound Long Bow +7
    * Magic
    o Freke - Firespray
    o Yuria - Igniter
    * Can be consumed for 3,200 soul points

    Lava bow is the strongest bow in the game and you WILL need it.

    * Dragon Demon's Soul
    o Boss 2-3: Dragon God
    o Magic
    + Freke - Fireball
    + Yuria - Firestorm
    o Miracle
    + Urbain - Rage of God
    o Can be consumed for 26,400 soul points

    For this either Rage of God or Firestorm is fine, but I think ROG is more useful.

    # Boss 4-1: Adjudicator
    # Weapon

    * 2-1 Blacksmith Ed - Meat Cleaver
    o May be upgraded from any of:
    + Club +0
    + Great Club +0
    + War Pick +6
    + Mace +6
    + Pickaxe +6
    + Morning Star +6
    + Iron Knuckles +6
    + Mirdan Hammer +6

    # Miracle

    * Urbain - Slow Recovery

    Pick Meat Clever as it causes knockdown on hit and will help you alot vs Humanoid enemies such as phantoms, Garl Vinland and Old Monk.

    Hero Demon's Soul

    * Boss 4-2: Old Hero
    * Weapon
    o 2-1 Blacksmith Ed - Large Sword of Searching
    + May be upgraded from any of:
    # Claws +8
    # Broad Sword +8
    # Flamberge +8
    # Shotel +8
    # Scimitar +8
    # Falchion +8
    # Kilij +8
    # Uchigatana +8
    # Sais +8
    * Miracle
    o Urbain - One-Time Revival
    * Can be consumed for 36,000 soul points

    Large Sword of Searching is a must-have for farming, especially for the crystal geckos (who have limited re-spawns!)

    Storm Demon's Soul

    * Boss 4-3: Storm King
    * Weapon
    o 2-1 Blacksmith Ed - Morion Blade
    + May be upgraded from any of:
    # Short Sword +8
    # Long Sword +8
    # Knight Sword +8
    # Bastard Sword +8
    # Claymore +8
    # Great Sword +8
    * Miracle
    o Urbain - Anti-Magic Field
    * Can be consumed for 48,000 soul points

    This is kinda hard since both are great. Anti Magic Field rapes world 3 for free (and useless in the rest of the game besides world 2's Black Phantom), but Morion Blade is for the ultimate bow combo. I'd say you should try to finish world 3 before you decide, and if you are having trouble with the magicians there get the spell. If you succeded w/o it, go for the Morion Blade.

    Wriggling Demon's Soul

    * Boss 5-1: Leechmonger
    * Magic
    o Freke - Poison Cloud
    * Miracle
    o Urbain - Cure
    * Can be consumed for 6,400 soul points

    For god's sake pick Poison Cloud! It makes the hardest bosses in the game a joke!

    Pureblood Demon's Soul

    * Boss 5-3: Maiden Astraea
    * Weapon
    o 2-1 Blacksmith Ed - Blueblood Sword
    + May be upgraded from
    # Broken Sword +0
    * Magic
    o Freke - Death Cloud
    o Yuria - Relief
    * Miracle
    o Urbain - Resurrection
    * Can be consumed for 48,000 soul points

    Pick Death Cloud, which is a stronger version of Poison Cloud but it doesn't work on the hard bosses. But it's a great tool in the levels themselves.

    That's not right. They better have like separate servers for people who are into that kind of thing. I don't want any part of that. If it's like that then I'm not going to even bother with online.

    I want to like this game but from what I'm reading/watching it seems like that there's a lot of stuff in the game that's just plain annoying. I guess that what's considered hard nowadays.

    I'm not sure if they have that, cuz a friend of mine who imported the Asia version kept getting ganked by high levels. But even then he says he loved the game and is considering buying it again solely to play multiplayer. I think you can kick people from your game, and there are probably limits to how many can be in a "room" so just party up and should be no randoms killing the fun or you.

    I got my artbook today, and it's nice. Not as big as the Knights in the Nightmare artbook, but still decent and comes with the OST. Can't wait to play this
