The framrate is really disappointing. It's even chugging when there are no enemies on screen.
That, and is it just me, or is the role sluggish?

...Please guys, tell me something to make me feel better. I'm felling a little hurt and upset.

Well I haven't played DeS in a while, so it could just be me, but I had trouble dodging that first "boss".
Not giving up though. I'll learn to use it effectively.

Is the...role...sluggish?

Disappointing about the frame rate, I know. Nothing can be said to ease your pain there, I'm hoping for a patch.

However, the core gameplay is amazing. I think they've slowed down the pace of the game, but I like it that way...it feels more...realistic, less arcadey.

Hahaha, that's a good video. Thanks for that!

Honestly, at first I had no idea that it was a typo...I thought you meant role as in...role-playing...and was confused. I got it eventually, though.

The roll isn't sluggish. They simply altered the equipment weight/equipment burden proportion.

25% and below provides the fastest rolling with the quickest recovery. 25%-50% a slightly more sluggish roll with hindered recovery, but still serviceable. Higher than %50 provides the slowest roll possible. 100% makes it that you cannot roll at all.

Also, yes the framerate chugs in a couple specific places. It's fine for the most part.

The only complaint I have about the game is that they focused too much on the praise for making a hard game and forgot about how it was the fairness of the difficulty that made Demon's Souls work. Too many scenarios thus far have come off slightly unfair to me and I'm quickly losing interest.

Ha. I'm always trying to spread the word about David Mitchell. I think he's hilarious. Such an angry nerd. Check out his TV series on youtube if you don't mind british comedy. (Contains swearing)

And thanks for the ROLL stats Drakenguard. That'll be a big help.

The roll isn't sluggish - It's just dependent on what your character is wearing.

About 30 hours into it and only have had issues in one part and that is the tower going up to the Black Knight near the Dragon. for some reason if i go now the ladder there to the rates, the frame rate goes to hell. Other than that no issues so far, even in Blight town which gives some grief
