Hey /b/. Should I buy Dark Souls II locally and play it today or wait to go to another store and buy the first one?

I've never played either, but as I understand it, Dark Souls isn't too concerned with continuity so much as kicking your ass. So... wut

what's bad about the second compared to the first?

>>550243849
It's dumbed down and the Soul Memory thing is fucking shit.

>>550244168
so, if it's dumbed down, perhaps it would be more beneficial to play the sequel first and then the original later?

>>550243849
the second one is fine i played both. it's great on pc, the first one wasnt too good on pc. Both arnt very hard, dark souls 1 is a bit less forgiving. Some like that better, I don't really care either way.

no retard, it's a sequel, companies make sequels all the fucking time using a different name.

DkS1 was a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls, since From couldnt make a sequel due to Sony owning the rights. They are semi-related, somewhat, but they are not a series.

Dark Souls 1 has a better feeling atmosphere compared to Dark Souls 2 and the story feels a lot more in depth in my opinion i'd suggest getting the first one whether your on console or PC it should be pretty cheap. I know Dark Souls 1 on Steam is 20 US dollars for the Prepare to Die edition with the DLC.

DS2 has better gameplay. DS1 has better story, level design and is less forgiving

Clocking around 200 hours for both parts and preferring DS2 at the moment for PvP. Playing a pure physical build without any buffs at 150SL and don't have too much trouble with soul memory. I think most people that complain about it are just bad at the game

How much of the story do you know in the meantime?
You know from the sealer?
You know from Queelags sister?
Have you entered the DLC-area yet?

For me DS is with the story one of the best games of the last years.
Wonderful work they have done in these 8 months.

Dark souls is a spiritual successor to Demon Souls but it is not a direct sequel.

Blight town is terrible the first time you're in there but once you know the way you get through it in like a minute and it's probably the easiest part of the game.

Dark Souls 2 SOUL is missing in ds1 that dragon in the begining, solaire and the storyline was much better, payed 50 euros for ds2 because i loved the first one now i have to pay more 25 euros (i wont do it) for a fucking dlc probably trying to save the game that was not good as announced.

>>550250667
I beat the entire game multiple times being every boss and the DLC area. I can tell you a backstory on almost all of the characters though some I don't know 100% like Manus all I know about him is he caused the Abyss to take over Oolacile but other than that I have no clue. And I know all about Quelaags sister and the Sealer
>>
>>550243518
Dark Souls 1 is way better than 2. Demon's Souls is better than both, but because of a few of the mechanics they added to Dark Souls, Dark Souls is a little more fun.

So play them in this order:

Dark Souls 1
Demons Souls
Dark Souls 2
>>
>>550250728
Blight Town isn't that bad just do the shortcut route through Valley of Drakes then do a few jumps until you reach the bottom then get invaded by Mildred then kick the shit out of Quelaag.

Blighttown is really a hell of place. But it's not even so hard, even when you have these poison spitting flies that chase you over the whole area.
Just try to find you way, go this way and it will be easy like each area.

Play DaS1 if you want a great game with lots of challenge and reward.
Play DaS2 if you want to play "2hard4u" shit due to ambushing around small corridors and every boss being a big monster of some sort.

Dark Souls 2 is so easy I purposely always join the Champion Covenant to make it harder and it's still to easy. That's why it's shit.

I dont really get why the little bitches are bitching about the soul memory thing, isn't it just some soul tracker? How much souls there is you've used on your character, that's it. I've always wanted to know how much I put into my character in DS1, so ain't this a bonus?

The games are in two different universes and the system is different. Demon Souls is stage based game, while Dark Souls is open world.

It's like saying GTA and LA Noire is the same because they are made by the company and have the same gameplay.
>>
>>550253694
The whole point of the Souls series is to be difficult they added a fucking covenant to make the game harder because its easier than the rest of the Souls series. The biggest reason the Souls series got big is because it capitalized on difficulty and they still added a covenant to Dark Souls 2 to make it harder you're a fucking moron.
>>
Loved DSI and just finished DSII an hour ago. In my opinion almost all of the bosses are on average much easier than most DSI ones. Though they've increased the difficulty of white mobs. They're, in my opinion at least, harder than in the previous soul game. Especially the beginning with Champions Covenant is just pretty lame. Getting 2shot by Zombies which you have to pull in 1, 2, 2, 3 groups has nothing to do with difficulty if you're out of stamina after 2 rolls. Most of the time you're forced to retreat while keeping 1 mob aggro so the others will deaggro. That's a very poor way of playing but sometimes you're forced to, depending on which build you play.
I assume that most people saying it's too easy have been or are playing faith lightning arrows. I agree that the game gets too easy with simple faith builds.
On the other hand, as the player yourself, you can decide how the game shall challenge you. There are hard ways to play it, but these hard ways involve Poison Arrows and general deaggro . I don't like how many of the areas are set up. I feels like fake difficulty.

You could like the idea of not leveling, just the kings are a little bit stupid on level 1.

In DaS 1 you had your soul level what was important to summon someone or to invade someone. As SL1 darkwraith you are able to invade other player on level 1, because you are on level 1.
In DaS 2 you have the soul memory, each soul you collect is counted. You want to invade someone or summon someone, then just with a fitting soul memory.

>>550258054
Also Havel seems like some kind of rebel, that's why he had an occult club in his basement, this is why he probably knew where the occult ember was.
With the club he had a weapon to fight again gods, that could be the reason why he is locked in that tower.

I found DS 1 easier than 2. But I always play a melee build with a touch of pyromancy (and pyromancy was patchy as fuck in 2)

Oh I always assumed he had an idea about what would happen during the fall of the Dragons so he never went to fight he is included in the intro so maybe he does have something more to him and people still have no clue about it?

Ah yeah...that feelings. That's something a game wasn't able before, I mean to influence me like that.
Then the same for killing Queelag, after all she wants to keep her sister safe, so I can really understand why Kirk is hunting for humanity.

Have you seen what happens, when you keep the fight against Sif too long?
When his health is almost down and he starts to limp, have you seen what can happen then?

Depends. Dark Souls II to me felt like a combination of Dark Souls and Demon's Souls. Dark Souls has excellent level design, epic boss battles, and is completely unforgiving.

Dark Souls II penalizes players too much by permanently reducing max health every time you die. I haven't played it as much but other than that the graphics are better (on PC at least) and the game runs at 60 fps.

If I was you I'd start out with Dark Souls and see how you like it. Give it a solid effort but most importantly DON'T GIVE UP! You will die tons and tons and tons but it's one of the most rewarding game ever made.

I saw him limp the first time I fought him because he was kicking my ass and I had to fall back to heal and saw that and just broke down I was like "Sif whyyyy why do you have to do this pleaaaaase" and it was intense. I'm trying to think of other sad boss lore.

I will try the same. Also the most what you do in this world is sad, because the most of it will end in more sadness and sorrow, especially when you can't help a friend to find his own special sun.

I never got the Sif alternate fight not yet at least i'm planning that on my playthrough I play when I stream but I barely stream because my mic broke so i've just let that rest for now. The saddest lore I can think of other than we mentioned might be O&S just because they were ordered to guard the princess (they may or may not have known she was an illusion) which means we killed them for doing their job. If they know she's an illusion then they are trying to hide Gwyndolin if they don't know she's an illusion they're being tricked into hiding Gwyndolin. The latter of those two options means Gwyndolin just uses them.

When he limps, just wait until it happens, after that, bring it to an end.

>>550264725
After all, how sure can we be, that O&S are real too? At your first encounter they will kick your ass and that really, but 'just' like each other enemy in this town.
They drop the souls, but the sentinels drop a shild, a chunk or whatever what you can use how you want it.
Besides this point, I think they just do their job and I don't really see it so sad. They are loyal and will keep 'her' safe, whatever would happen, like Velstadt tries to keep Vendrick safe. Also Garl Vinland was trying to keep Maiden Astraea safe, but in that case you could probably say that it's sad.
So should I say for myself what is more sad in that case it would be like
Garl Vinland > Velstadt > O&S | maybe Velstadt and O&S on the same level.

Yeah it's not the saddest part of the game but I think it's the only time a boss fight didn't bring the form of the boss onto themselves. Like the Four Kings weren't like that they succumbed to evil power or something and Manus brought the Abyss to Oolacile not many bosses are normal in a sense compared to them. And they most likely aren't illusions since Ornstein can drop the Leo Ring.

I always assumed that maybe the Old Dragonslayer could be a descendant to Ornstein or Ornsteins family member. It could be that the Old Dragonslayer was told stories of Ornstein and the Four Knights while he was younger and decided to try and be like Ornstein. There are a lot of possibilities but no one knows whether they're true sadly. Also do you play on PC or consoles?

I play it on PC with controller of course.
Or it could be O, a weak O indeed or just some kind of hollowed O, look around Heide's Tower of Flame.
The area looks similiar to Anor Londo, it's not the same, but it looks similiar.
Imagine that Gwynevere or at least some servants has left Anor Londo and tried to escape, left Lordran and travelled to Drangleic a long time ago. There they build up this whole area, over the years it crumbled again, just like Drangleic.
It's a flame tower, maybe for Flame God Flann, a god that was mentioned that he left Lordran and was possible married to Gwynevere.
So you have some connections. Just watch out again for Vaati, he has also a clip for the Tower of Flame.

Just get about 3 million new souls and run to him, I hope that this so easy, otherwise it would just took a little bit longer.

NG = 1 million new souls
NG+ = 2 million new souls
NG++ = 3 million new souls
>For example, If you start New Game++ with 3,000,000 Soul Memory you will be required to obtain 6,000,0000 Soul Memory for the Shrine of Winter to open in your current playthrough.

Until 8, like everything in the game.


Drop your red sign in the area before the foggate, maybe he will call you to help him. It's just a little bit mean, when you use warmth to heal the knight.

Good luck with that. The player will get a notification that the knight is calling a player.

Also the white ring can be fun for the user.

Oh wow.

Just checked and I have 7.7M souls mem.
Gonna start up NG++ and see if I can get them spells quick.
>>
>>550284170
Wait, don't forget that you need completely new souls, so you will need about 10.7M before you can open the shrine, if you enter the ng++ now.

Just kill the giant lord around 100 times, take his 100 souls with you and use them in NG++.
So each souls that you can 'eat' will be able to use in the next round.
