way to block backstabs...
Oh man, you don't even how happy I would be if my character could have that skill. There's always the issue with lag though...
I hope by direct sequel they mean we shall see the world after the events of dark souls too.
People have been speculating that Dark Souls II is a direct sequel to "The Dark Lord" ending.
As for the new hero, that shouldn't matter at all because your hero in these games are never fleshed out at all. Your always the mysterious wanderer basically.
If I remember some parts of lore of Dark Souls that's not entirely true. But yeah, aside from that little detail your character works pretty much perfectly as an avatar that you can shape the way you want.
yeah there is the lag issue but perhaps with the server thing they can fix it a bit? still it'd be nice if the make the combat a little less reliant on backstabs anything to change the tactics just a little could be really nice.
listening to you guys i thought "how sweet would it be if it detected your darksouls save and how you last ended the game?" but i guess that'd be double the story beats and just be difficult if someone hadn't played the first one, unless they do a mass effect style comic and decision in the beginning, hmm.
what i meant with "new hero" dragon age 2 thing was, i thought they were inferring that there would be a hawke like scenario where the story is driven by one character that you get to choose the class. which would bum me out. it's likely they just mean your not playing your last character and you make a new one but when they talked about being more direct with the story that's what came to mind.
faded sun is likely right though it'll likely be great i remember hearing about covenants and thinking wtf? but it really didn't change much for me.
