So I hate fantastically difficult games. Will DS2 have a easy mode?

I don't care. Ill say it. Those games are hard lol.

I loved Demons souls but the slight increase in difficulty on dark souls just killed it for me apparently.

I would absolutely love an easy mode for these games. Any word on that or is it still to early?

Too early to know. Surprised you struggled with dark souls though, I felt like it was the same mechanics so dark souls was way easier for me to jump into. You should give it another go.

lol Im going to with a 99.9% chance of no.

The game is as popular as it is in large part because of it's difficulty.

I do recall reading that they were going to make the mechanics less misleading though, so you don't have players doing dumb stuff like leveling resistance.

I've thought about it. The beginning was just plain hell though.

Did you go the skeleton route? Thats basically the wrong way to go. The hardest roadblocks for people are A) very beginning. B) The first Capra demon and C) anor londo archers/bosses. It's pretty easy once you know what hook they have to them. I beat the game at level 1 recently and can def. give advice on it!

Christ, I hope not.

Without its difficulty, Dark Souls would just be a mediocre WRPG with hardly any story whatsoever.

The difficulty is part of the formula that makes it so great.

Its not difficult. It feels like a perfect normal mode game. Its just that people think that they can just run in sword slashing without dying. And then .....they die... then complain "its too hard"

Yeah, dark souls isn't hard at all. it's *misleading* and doesn't explain it's mechanics, thats all. Once you understand how poise, stability, and other mechanics works it's exceedingly easy to run through the game at level 1 with basically starter gear.
