I finally preordered it, the black armour edition version for the 360 (sorry lost dragon :) )but we never did manage to go soul searching together! (Not for want of trying)

A few bits of info have leaked through, the main one being you can be invaded while in any form. To help out there's some sort of police clan. It sounds like an awful idea, knowing you could be invaded in human form gave you a risk reward strategy. If it happens at any time random deaths and unfairnes would be the obvious outcome. Hopefully FROM have some strategy in place, but if they are relying on the good will of the community to stop abuse of the system the game will be a disaster :)

Also heard stories of an always depleting health bar while you are in your dead form. I just hope they don't start messing with the formual too much.

:lol: Why you dirty rotten.......

True though, many (failed) attempts to do co-op was enough to drive you to the dark side.Pity as it was that aspect that really made the series stand out.

Yeah not keen on idea of being invaded, no matter your form, that sounds like it could go tits up, pretty swiftly, last thing you'd need if you were making your way back to a boss, is for some uber-ninja'ed up character to invade, kick your ass before you even reached boss.That'd do my head right in.

Love the lighting effects in that video, but...looking at Dark souls frame rate and lower resolution (than Demon's) due to the A.I routines being more advanced, i hope it's not come at cost of A.I....

I am loving the look of this, Dark Souls remains for me the best game of last gen, I am in a bit of a dilemma tho as I have nothing yet to play it on. I am pretty miffed they are not releasing it on PS4 but can understand the reasoning behind it, a Demon Souls prequel/successor as a PS4 exclusive is rumored so I hope that is true.
My dilemma is I recently sold my PS3 as i'm concentrating on the new generation, so I have had to cancel my Limited Edition DS2 preorder.
I am at the planning stage of building a gaming pc to go aslongside my PS4 but my head is in bits as to what spec to go for, plus the Limited Edition on pc has not yet been given a release date.
This may sound daft but I find the ps3 is now unplayable as the front end is so slow and clunky compared to the PS4 plus the pad is simply awful now I have been using the new DS4. So I will be playing dark Souls 2 on pc hopefully when it's released if I can get my head around what pc spec to go for.

I'm pretty excited now, this is the only reason I kept with my 360 rather than going next gen. Reviews are very positive, that's the next two months of gaming sorted :)

have Dark Souls on Xbox360, atmosphere, graphics, sound, gameplay are all ace but... it's too damn hard for me, after about 10hrs i'm still in the beginning, but i must admit that the aura that Dark Souls II emits makes it quite tempting

maybe should give the first one another effort
funnily, 2 months further on, i've finished Dark Souls and now am playing through Demon's Souls, so yes, eventually i'll be getting this as well :lol:

Starting to get hyped for this, although I want to see and do everything in Dark Souls before getting it in.

enjoying the game so far killed the first 4 bosses. Been slightly harder then ds1 due to the amount of mobs you gotta fight at once.
