expect a mediocre game that is only unique because it tries to piss you off. Its not great design, just lazy and the same people who buy all dlc and worship these greedy publishers are the ones who says this lazily designed game is unique.


You seem emotionally unstable. May I offer you a candy cane?


You asked what to expect, he told you.


He asked what to expect not for a troll to come up with the best troll answer possible. >_>


He is a troll because his opinion of the game contradicts yours? He is allowed to think the game is mediocre.

I've never played the Souls games. I know they're extremely hard, and I'm not the best gamer out there, but I've always had an interest in the series.

What can I expect? Tips/info appreciated here as I know very little about this game.


Don't expect the game to be incredibly hard. It's not. It just requires your constant attention. Also expect a lot of technical issues and god awful framerate problems.

The only thing in his post that expresses an opinion is it being a mediocre game, everything else are inaccurate "facts". Hiding lies behind an opinion is a very troll thing to do.

Yeah, I hit my first framerate problems right after I got my first weapon. It was absurdly noticeable and I felt like I was watching a slideshow at times.

Honestly, if this game runs like this, then Dark Souls 2 has to be a next gen game, if what I'm hearing about its graphics are true.

quit out when you need to pause to pee
listen to everything the characters have to say, there's very little wasted dialogue

with so many people liking this game and so many positive reviews you cant say this game is bad without putting " i dont understand how.." or "in my opinion". He said expect a mediocre game, paraded it as fact, and then made an oversweeping generalization insulting everyone who loves this game. Yea, hes trolling

Biggest tips-

*DON'T make a jack of all trades character. Pick two or three stats and stick to them. Ignore resistance entirely.

*Pick a weapon you like and upgrade it. Damage boosts come from upgrading weapons and not from the strength stat.
