Oh man...

I still have yet to beat Dark Souls. I got past that Taurus Demon (3rd boss I think) and pretty much gave up after that. Started a new game the other day and instead of using a mage I'm going for a warrior setup. Now I at least know not to put any points into resistance.

I'm pretty interested but at the same time there's a good chance it'll suck and all the Souls fanboys will cry and I'll drink all of their tears with pleasure! Not that I hate the games, I've played Demon's Souls and liked it and I haven't played Dark Souls yet, but the fanbase can be pretty pretentious.

...alright.

I haven't played Dark Souls yet, but the fanbase can be pretty pretentious.

And? Is that going to affect your performance when playing the game or something? :|

Seriously, just read a wiki if you need any help. There's plenty of info out there to help you with Dark Souls if you don't want to bother with the community online at this point.

You and I made it about the same. I crossed under the dragon bridge, got poisoned by a rat. Then I made it to some spiral staircase and got leveled by some knight.

Sorry, maybe I should've hinted a bit of sarcasm on that comment. :P

The key with Dark Souls is to remember that once you learn how the game expects you to play it, you will have a much easier time. It can be obtuse and has a big learning curve, but you will be stunned at how much better you get as the game goes on. Enemies that you used to fear will become a total pushover, and you'll find yourself getting hit less and less often. It's incredibly addicting, and if someone is being pretentious and ruining the experience, just ignore them and don't let them bring things down for you.

Um, dude. I'm just kidding about the whole fanbase comment. I guess maybe I shouldn't be a jokester on the forums and act all serious for once. Lol

I'm going to. But I have so many games on my backlog, I don't want to overload on another RPG.

Honestly I might just skip on this one. I got up to the spider-lady on my own then pretty much took advantage of the old Dragon Head glitch while it still existed. Personally I don't think the lack of story and choice of aesthetic (nothing 'wrong' with it; just runs contrary to my tastes) mesh well with the enormous grind the game is. (Grind to get souls, grind the boss fights for patterns/tactics, grind for rare drops, grind for Humanity, grind for Reputation, grind for PvP drops, grind the entire game 3+ times over in one go to get all the weapons for Plat, ect.) Unless such a glitch pops up early on in DS2's lifespan; then I might give it a peek.

Rookie move. Who uses a bow on a giant monster when he's that close! WHY DOESN'T HE HAVE HIS SHIELD UP!?!?
