I paid $70 for ps3 special edition $45 for pc version $25 for the season pass $5 for the upgrade to Scholar of Sin Ive paid roughly $145 dollars on one game Ive spent more money on Dark Souls II then all the other games in the series combined. Demon's Souls $60 Dark Souls $60 Dark Souls PC $10 Dark Souls Strategy Guide $10 I only spent more on the other games in the series if you include Bloodborne at another $60
>>323205564 I paid $20 for the SOTFS PS4 and would gladly do so again. I absolutely love the game. Dark Souls 1 had enjoyable PVE but the backstab fishing pvp bullshit ruined that scene. Dark Souls 2 had much improved combat and damn near unlimited replay-ability. I've clocked hundreds of hours in this game and plan too play more.
>DaS2 is pretty good the whole way through with the DLC being some of the best souls content out there >DaS is amazing the first half, utter shit in the second half and with pretty good DLC >retards still act like DaS is this unfailable masterpiece while DaS2 is the worst blight on humanity
I guess I shouldn't be surprised that /v/ is full of morons by now but the stupidity on here is still just baffling at times
>>323206732 yes yes ive heard it a million times and I vehemently disagree. Bloodborbe has the best PVE and DSII has the best PVP bar none. I love dark souls I but you'll never catch me playing it before any of the other souls games (except demons souls which is the worst one by far).
>>323207016 You can not unironcically think demons was the best in the series? Are you joking? That game is broken. You're telling me you enjoy scraping spear/runninginferno/itemburden/worldtenedency bullshit? Take off your nostalgia goggles Tower of Latria does not make up for the rest of the horrible faults this game has.
>>323206974 It really is GOAT tier in both level design and the 2/3 unique bosses in each. People call some of the areas bullshit like the run before the gank squad and smelter bluemon but people don't realize these areas were intended to be done in co-op.
>>323205564 >buy game on release >decide to make a Templar guy sort of like the class in DeS >get to the miracles >30 fucking lightning bolts >plow through every boss >find hexer guy >30 fucking dark balls >plow through every boss >game ends with Priscilla reskin
Didn't even feel like a souls game. I fucking regret it. Also the Sunlight Covenant alter was in a fucking swamp for no reason.
>>323207605 >best aesthetics Demon's souls make my eyes hurt, it's so fucking bloomy looking. The graphics are atrocious >best atmosphere Bloodborne is better >best bosses you have to be joking, it's bosses were all gimmicky garbage with terrible combat mechanics >most fair I'll give you that, souls games get cheaper by each iteration.
>>323207841 >soul memory What was so wrong with it? I always found people to play with and havelmonsters were as popular as they were in DaS1. Tryhards didn't need soul memory. >cracked red eye orb A minor inconvenience I always pvped in bell areas so it didn't really affect me
>>323205957 It's better in everything other than the connected-ness of the world. Demon Souls had more of an excuse to have different world themes, but Dark Souls 2 felt like too many random ideas that made no sense being together got put together.
Other than that, the combat, items, and general way of advancing through the game is way better.
>>323208181 >demons souls >5 completely separate worlds that dont interact each other in any way whatsoever >must warp to central hub zone to travel to any other world at all >levels literally labeled as 1-2,5-1 etc due to their replicated design >world design is more akin to super mario world than any other souls game
At least in Dark Souls 2 you could run, on fooot, from the very beginning till the very end with no need to warp anywhere. That's completely impossible in Demon's due due its in-congruent hub world design. Just stop anon you're embarrassing yourself.
>>323209183 Just a useless stat that shouldn't exist. Well technically not useless, just something that shouldn't cost souls to determine. I thought the previous systems implemented I-frames just fine. It doesn't help that the hit boxes in DaS 2 are shit on top of the business with I-frames.
>>323209183 look I love DSII but ADP is probably the worst part of the entire game. Have you tried even explaining ADP too someone who has no concept of what an iframe is? The fact that they tied the concept to it's own stat makes no fucking sense. It should be tied too endurance. That makes sense.
>tfw I was one of those people who bought it at launch for $60
I actually found the PS4 version today for $15 at a local store so I bought it cause wynaut.
I gotta say. Did the game always looks this fucking lame or have I just been spoiled by Bloodborne? I've only killed Last Giant and Pursuer so far but both of them were much more underwhelmig than I remember.
Also I'd gladly trade 60 fps to get particle effects like Bloodborne has.
>Last Giant rips his arm off >Starts smacking it on the ground trying to get me >No dust or dirt particle effects or nothing
it feels like I'm just smacking action figures around.
This is what DaS 2 does better than DaS Infusions are better than the weapon paths in DaS.
Almost all the paths in DaS are shit or have a limited use. For example, the lighting path doesn't scale with faith and the divine path is incredibly weak even if you're a faith build.
Infusions actually allow you to easily convert a weapon into being useful if you are a magic user.
It actually makes duel wielding viable for a change.
It created a new magic class for quality magic builds
Other than that, it fucks up a lot of stuff that DaS did right, like Adding soul memory which ruins community meta, adding annoying grinding to invasion orbs, Too many similiar boss fights, unconnected world, fucked up heavy weapon animations
I'll never, ever be quite so butthurt as when I played the game and saw just how fucking awful the graphics were.
I'm not a graphics whore, and I never will be, but there's no fucking excuse for how hideous this game is. The absolute worst of the worst for me would be the beginning of The Gutter with that giant pile of polygonal trash that's just a texture over some poorly mapped pillar. Lost Bastille was particularly bad too.
Everyone says the problem was "too many knights". But that isn't the problem, the problem is it's too many knights with similar attack patterns.
I always felt the reason for the knight overflow in DaS 2 came from the fact that most humanoid duel fights in DaS are among the best. This is even true in bloodborne with Hunter Bosses. From has historically screwed the pootch with beast bosses, especially if they don't have a humanoid form.
So the idea was to make everything a knight in DaS II, but they fucked it up by making these knights all fight the same.
Even the pursuer, who can fucking fly around, has a move set that doesn't reflect that fact.
>>323212392 Yeah the old system had a nice simplicity too it. Melee had their END and then their damage stat. Mages had their attunement and then their damage stat. So then what should replace RES? Or shoudl they rework it somehow to make it less useless?
