Elden Ring is FromSoft's new RPG - check out the Elden Ring Wiki



Dark Souls 2 Official Website

Developed by From Software, Dark Souls 2 is a sequel to the critically acclaimed Dark Souls, an action RPG with estimated sales of over 1.5 million units. The original game's appeal lay with its renowned difficulty and trial-and-error approach, one that Dark Souls 2 promises to sustain.
As of the 24th of March, 100 million souls have died on PS3, and 35 million souls have died on Xbox 360.

Regarding The Software

  • The game is not a direct sequel to Dark Souls.
  • As the game's protagonist, the players will embark on a journey to remove from themselves the affliction of a curse.
  • Bonfires and covenants return, as do gestures.
  • The difficulty level will remain, with the focus staying on learning from death to overcome challenges. The variety in ways to die has been prioritized but the focus is still on fairness.
  • Story is presented in the same fashion as Demon's and Dark, unobtrusive and discoverable by players who wish to dig deeper.
  • A new graphics engine was created to address frame-rate issues and give the development team an extra tool in creating atmosphere. PC will run at 60 fps and Console versions will run at 30 fps.

      For some reason the SotFS version has a controller deadzone that gives the game a clunky restricted feeling which it shouldn’t have at all and it makes basic movement around areas feel less enjoyable. The games animations are mostly pretty damn fluid and some people might not realise the real issue behind the worse feel compared to the other titles. That full 360 analogue movement is so important so the game feels less robotic.

        I don’t get why so many people hate ds2. It’s a great game with creative enemies, fun mechanics, and a good story.

          Still the king of critical animations. Demon’s Souls remake came close but the damage not syncing with the multi hit ripostes is a real turn off and the lack of a unique animation for the great axe and great club classes was a cop out on Bluepoint’s part (stabbing people with Bramd, come on now) but DS2 has everything just right in this regard.

            DS2 is really fun for what it is, I like the variety and level of detail they put into the game. The engine is trash and causes me die way more often then I feel I should be. Rolling animations take too long using healing items takes waaaay too long.

              it's almost trash, but You can have fun with a lot of builds, a nice PVP and some very good bosses like the fume knight and Sir alonne.

                putting aside the design choices fromsoft made in this one, the game is scuffed, objectively broken in places, unpolished and quite simply unfinished. that said i still very much enjoyed playing it and encourage all souls fans to do the same, the diamonds in the rough like fume knight make it worth your time. it's just a shame the final product couldn't have been closer to what we saw in the trailers.

                  I feel for players who started DS2 with SotFS because almost all of the changes in that version made the game more frustrating to play. Vanilla DS2 is better in every place except Dragon Shrine which became one of the coolest places in all of souls in the SotFS version. The difference in enemy placement and overall fairness is drastic between the two with the original being the much much better version. SotFS feels like a higher difficulty mode made for players who experienced the original but it can really harm a first timers overall impression of the game.

                    the variety of weapons and possible builds are so good, and the PVP is pretty interesting Unfortonally, the entire PVE is utter trash.

                      Imo, ds2 dlc is the best souls content there is. Unfortunately, the base game is what keeps me from replaying it. Dlc: spectacular level design, beating ds1 in terms of interconnectivity. The bosses are amazing too, the devs really grasped how to utilize the slower, methodical combat.
                      Base game: worst level design, worst bosses out of the series.

                        Ds2 is great
                        but the wiki for this game is horrible they are much more incomplete than the Ds1
                        an example in Ds1 talks about the boss, strategies, history, blows.
                        on Ds2 it only talks about the boss and a little bit of history :[

                          Does anybody know was the remastered version of scholar of the first sin actually handled by the DS2 team themselves (the graphical updates and everything else) or was it enhanced by a different studio like dark souls remastered was?

                            An important thing to keep in mind is that DS2 is objectively the black sheep regardless of it’s quality because the series creator didn’t direct it. Unfortunately the term is abused by people who use it to brand DS2 as the worst in the series so the phrase is only seen as negative now even though it could be the best game to some players while still being the black sheep by definition and not by it’s traits

                                I like how the people who hate ds2 and the people who love ds2 can come together and $hit on the guy who said lords of the Fallen was better.

                                    lords of the fallen (fun fact: came out a bit later the same year) >>>> DS2
                                    in a nutshell: both horrible games with horrible mechanics (DS2: lock on mode fails way too often, hitboxes, estus heals over time etc.)
                                    but lords of the fallen doesnt look like a boiled turd, I prefer it for relaxed "casual play"

                                    objectively a horrible game, subjectively a different matter though

                                    PS: I respect you guys, you enjoy the game and that is, after all the most important thing.......even if you got taste confusion, prefer the old ladies and their nasty STDs in things between (yeah super smart, Team C Developer) to a great relationship with ups & downs (DS1 & DS3 do have a fair share of **** ups!)

                                    PPS: Dont even think about raging about lords of the fallen in the replies, if you with your chimpanzee IQ thought I would like the game....wrong, just mentioned it to **** with you tasteless lunatics

                                      Time for my input in the comments. Ds2 is easily the worst souls game but that doesn't mean it's a bad game. I suggest playing this game last in the series due to the increased difficulty that stem from the new mechanics. The game can be classified as experimental because of all the mechanics that aren't seen in any of the other souls games. The PvE itself suffers greatly from this, an example being the average starting agility of a character giving you around 7 i-frames. This is barely enough to roll through certain attacks. Another issue with the PvE is the existence of Heide's Tower of Flame. The Knights there have an attack with a wind up animation of them standing still. Another issue with Heide's is that the boss is a joke (6 steps) and the next area (No-Man's Wharf) is significantly easier (why?). There are a lot more problems with this game but my one piece of advice on how to enjoy this game is to delay your rolls lol
