I've got Ornstein's Armor with Havel's Gauntlets, and I'm not getting cursed quickly, so there's that!

Is that still medium load wise? I had to go light for that fight so I could run quickly, think I used the dingy robes.

I can't remember how far I got in the first game. I know O+S have fallen, but that's all I can remember off the top of my head. Achievement list says I have the Lordvessel, but I also know that the less linear format of the game means that doesn't tell you quite so much.

Medium load, yeah. I could probably take off the Havel's Gauntlets for light load.

Seath is definitely weak to lightning, also they really did go all out in the demon ruins area.

I was reading up on the development of Dark Souls, and the article mentioned that a couple of areas of the game were unfinished by the developer's admission, namely Lost Izalith.

Well, he is blind...

And that's not foreboding at all Vido.  Aww!

EDIT: Broken broken terrible boss. Not impressed! It's dead, but man was that a mess. Compared to the masterfully designed O&S fight, that boss was utter shite. Hell, most of Demon Ruins and all of Lost Izalith was unimpressive. You can definitely see the lack of polish on these areas that the others have. They were merely okay, which is a testament to the design of the other areas. Two more required bosses to go till I'm done!

I like the way ruins/izalith looked but I cant really argue with your other points, thought it was a bit weird where you pick up the orange charred ring as the game generally tucks away items like that in areas you wouldn't think of.

Also mas didn't think you'd finish by DSII's PC release Laughing

Hey, what's wrong with a katana? My Uchi's carried me through the entire game.  Grin 

Oh wow! I knew there were items that would make the game harder if you used them, but that certainly sounds like quite a game changer. How would you rate DSII compared to DSI Vido?

Hmm, I like 2 better overall. I think that Dark souls 1 perfected the weight of weapons and armour and how this made controlling them feel almost 'authentic' if such a thing is manageable. You feel allot more nimble in 2.

Some people say the graphics took a hit in 2, I don't mind though because there is no sudden frame crashes like in blight-town. The game is longer and has more bosses, though most don't feel as monumental as those in the first game.

I say 'most' as some will destroy you, in this way damage feels accurate. in DS1 any old boss did lots of damage even if the attack looked unastounding. If a boss is big and does some sort of charging attack it will one shot you. Some of the smaller bosses will be a test of agility.

There are also a vast array of weapons available in 2 with durability being re-hashed to create a balance between a glass cannon (katana) and something reliable yet mundane (broadsword). There is also loads of crazy magic to employ from soul spears to setting yourself on fire.... yes, this is an actual spell.

Overall 2 is bigger better and you will die lots more, at the cost of maybe a little graphics wise and possible quantity over quality in enemies/bosses, although they are still pretty good.

And I'm done!  Grin 

Managed to kill the final boss with a parry and riposte, which felt SO damn satisfying.

I'll probably pick up Dark Souls II after my exams, as it releases on PC like two days before they start.

Congrats Jay!

As I said before the katana served me well for while but once I tried out the great swords I didn't turn back (until I turned one divine to deal with Nito's skele's) also with the final boss the only way I could get blows in was to parry/riposte so it got pretty dicey at times.
