Dark Souls II
Dark Souls II Cinematic Trailer is All About the Atmosphere

As the Dark Souls II hype machine gathers steam, another trailer for the game has been released.

Following hot on the heels of the 12 minute gameplay vid and screens released yesterday, the trailer is a more traditional affair concentrating on tone more than actual gameplay. But if you’re big fans of the series like we are, you’ll lap it up anyway.

Dark Souls II will be kicking your ass in 2014.

@4 lol, what? It was perfect the last time. They even dumbed it down a bit from Demon Souls.
It was hard, but in a satisfying way.

It was stupid hard for a reason. It's for hardcore gamers man, if you can't beat it quit your whining and go and adjust sliders to your favor in Skyrim or something.

I hate how pretentious and dull dark souls fans are, all you do is whine at people who dislike the series and then smug over difficulty. Woopy do its difficult, you know what else the series is BORING. Its a slow, dull, empty game with awful combat , awful narrative and story telling and offers nothing to the RPG genre.

#11 HAHAHA Boring? Nope. Slow? Possibly, not a bad thing though. Empty game with awful combat?? Think that's COD you're on about. Dark souls is one of the most richly rewarding games I've ever played and the combat mechanics are fantastic.

Damn I still need to finish the first one, I love it but everytime I get passed Anor Londo I usually get distracted by something else, don't touch it for a while come back, have no Idea what I was doing build-wise and start again, it's a never ending cycle ARGH.

It's not the kind of game that is supposed to be beat straight away your supposed to die, a lot, hence the motto 'prepare to die', if you embrace the death, you learn a little about the enemy your facing, when you have played it enough it is actually really easy due to most enemies been very easy to read, I can get up to, anor londo without even breaking a sweat now, due to how much I've played it.

But granted this kind of game is not for everyone, but please don't bitch wanting it to be dubbed down when most players of the game prefer it as it is.

Look at Skyrim, very similar in type of game, feeroam all about killing monsters and dragons, but killing a Dragon i Skyrim and your like 'that it', but fight a Dragon in dark souls, beat it and your 'holy shit, i actually did it'.

Dark Souls builds character.

Once you get your head around the game n how it works its not so stupid hard. You just have to be cautious and take your time, 'patience is a virtue'. I prefer dark souls to almost any other rpg to be honest.

Cant wait for dark souls 2! And i hope they dont lower the difficulty, i heard a horrible rumour on thenet that they may make it easier to appeal to a wider audience.. really hope not

didnt they say something like they werent going to alter the difficulty just offer more guidance at the start,in that case most new players wont be running around the catacombs or new londo for hours on end like i did, i think it actually took me about 20hrs playtime before i got to the undead parish but i do hope they add a harder setting only unlockable by beating NG++++ or something similar

Yeah hopefully, i just heard the rumour on the net so its probz all bullshit anyway!
Agreed tho, it took me a while to get me head around the game but as soon as it clicked i couldnt stop playing!
Only thing i can say is to improve the pvp part of the game, connections get well bad sometimes n the duels are pointless..

Hopefully they make pvp better, could have an undead colosseum or something where you can join a lobby. Also could have a stat card other players can see, it would be pretty cool to see how many times people died in the story
