    Thx dude i won the first and let me tell you wasnt any easy at all, top hard game !!! You die a lot but is worth the time. This looks great and more smooth,
    great rpg just hope it gets more difficult than first so many noobs (no gamers) that think is just a console game regret their step into this. Is a game for truly gamers.

    I'd like to get into this game this time arond, but I'd want to play through Dark Souls first. I haven't had the chance to, but I've been wanting to for a long time. Other than hearing that the game can be uber hard, I think that it looks pretty awesome.
    If I decide to pick it up, it'll be for PC, as that's where the gaming is!!!! :toast:

    Looks like This game will offer 3 type of packages>Collectors Edition for around 80£[​IMG]
    >Black armor edition around 30£ [​IMG]
    And standart game for 26£
    I'm talking about PC version :p
    BUt I'll probably will get the standart version.Want just enjoy the the game.
    And I really want to see new bosses and challenges in this game,.When I played dark souls 1>At the first I just died and died I thought I just quit this game and never play it again,but then I realized then running and killing mobs without strategy was my mistake.So I guess,Its all about being very aware about dangers and every type of monster u need to study first to know the best way to kill em.Especially the bosses.Some of them I couldnt kill alone So I mostly used help of network to get some buddy into boss fights.Hope this game will improve multiplayer even more.
    ----------------
    I was playing as a sorcerer mostly and a bit of melee fight.Dont know what to build this time for DS2

    An awesome game it is! no doubt about it!!!! Hard as Hell!! Im going for the one on pc like the first and this time i dont have to wait like most a year for it! ; D
    Ah! plz developers if there is an expansion just i need to know how to start it, in the first one i had to start the game twice to get the expansion activated. Even saying that i cant regret the expansion was great 4 great bosses and fights. I really love this game.

    So start right now!!! this game its not like most rpg its top hard and i recommend you to take a guide for you not lose everysingle piece of alternative path and bosses. Theres a way to return to Undead Assylum so to fight a new boss and and get an item to explore a new map there like many other paths. Like i said without a guide you lose lots of alternatives paths . My advise: play it right away and dont get frustated how many times you die, is worthly!!!!!!!!!! Good luck and any question post me or sms me.

    Its one of those pre-order worthy games :)

    first it was "Prepare to Die"

    then this was "Bearer of the curse, seek misery"

    We need to make competition who dies less by finishing first difficulty.I wonder if this game will include some other penalties then loosing all souls.

    its still good imo, judging by the screenies, its just that they show the initial nice looking lighting in the early previews then we come to this. The lighting and graphics would have added to the atmosphere imo

    I heard from 2 guys from the official guide that the game was developed with a pc prospective so the graphic wil be better on pc than the console version.
    Don't look the screens on steam .
    They changed it because on console the game with the graphic at max was slow so they turn down some settings or the game wont reach 30fps xd.

    Screenshots and video of the pc version is already out, and the major difference from the console version is the usual sharper textures, higher resolution and 60FPS. The lighting effects shown in the earlier previews last year were not present on the pc version.

    Still looks decent at least as long as its as good as the original

    The settings

    Have tomorrow and Friday off. So happy my boss doesn't correlate game release dates and my vacations... that'd be an awkward conversation.

    Playing it right now... I've spent more time with the soul series than any other game I've played, so far the PC version of DS2 runs smoothly in image quality, frame rate, audio and network... They've learned from their mistake!
