If I remember correctly I was around mid 40s when I tackled Sen's fortress/Anor Londo, nothing wrong with being prepared.

I'll return there and have a look for anything I missed.  Smile 

So, what's the major differences going from Dark Souls to Dark Souls II, those who are playing/have played it?

Well, I have played both Dark Souls games to death... (sorry) I can say with confidence that the PvP in Dark Souls 2 is way better, simply because backstabs are not the norm and the general connectivity has been streamlined very well.

My personal opinion on what works well for the first game is plenty of points in Dex and Faith and definately a 25% equip load, or whatever it takes to do the super fast roll. Of course I feel that for first time players it is more fun/challenging to make whatever decision they want, having magic makes things a little less of a burden though.

For differences between the two games I would say that Dark souls 2 has less annoying areas but makes up for it with tougher normal enemies and way, way more bosses. Gameplay feels smoother and has been streamlined in ways such as being able to fast travel from the start, improving equipment also now leaves more room for trial and error rather than giving a very limited supply of titanite (upgrade material)

Haha! Brilliant!

@vidofnir

I coped the majority of the time with the medium roll & that only changed for a handful of bosses/sections, there was even times when I went to fast roll it would throw me off because I wasn't used to moving so quickly.

I've not used the fast roll at all so far. Medium load has served me well.

DSII trailer at the cinema today. It's pretty mainstream now I guess, huh?

That's big! Normally it's only your Call of Duties and your Fifas that get exposure like that.

Do you know if the trailer they showed is up on YouTube? Wouldn't mind having a gander at it.

Isn't it just an edit of the announcement trailer?

I...did not expect to hear the Pixies there. Interesting song choice. The trailer definitely made the game look like a million bucks though.

Oh for anyone still playing the first Dark Souls, I have characters at soul level 103, 51 and 77. I think the range to summon people is 10 levels + 10% so if anyone fancies some jolly co-operation or teaming up to ruin some invaders day we can arrange something.

What do you play on Vido? I'm on PC and I'm approaching the last few bosses in the game - just beat The Four Kings and I'm in the Duke's Archives right now!

Ah I have it on 360, for some reason the game being multi-platform flew straight over my head. Good luck with the Archives though! Do you have the prepare to die addition?

It really is a shame we all seem to be on different systems (apart from me as Buska) some GNamer co-op shenanigans would've been great.

Isn't the coop in DSII handled differently or does it still match folk by soul level?

I do indeed have the Prepare to Die edition! Am I not wrong in saying that 360/PC players can play together? The PC version uses GFWL and uses my Xbox Live account.
