What's an RPG without a story?  I started playing DS only to get bored after several hours.  The whole point of the game is to just move forward and fight the next enemy for no apparent reason or incentive.  That's dull.

The combat looks a lot slower than before. The staggering, swing animations, delays for attacks etc. Why slow down the pace if you nailed the balance and controls in the last game?

Replaying Dark Souls now after the Beta key wouldn't work for me. Why do I always go after Sif 3rd? Always need to watch my Stamina so much.

Uh...I hate halberds, also it felt abit boring till that guy with the scythes came; the torch guys weren't even flaying their weapons like mad like in DS1. Maybe it's just the starting zone...

Would've liked to see some dual wielder and mage class gameplay.

@Laedipiros Cuz he didn't play properly, he didn't used the mechanics offered by the game, maybe on his next try he`ll remember that he can dodge and pay more attention.

@EdAl2112 @mishdogg No, the story is crap, really. But the game is amazing. DS games are about gameplay and adventure, not about dialogue wheels and morality choices. It's about gameplay. Don't look at this game like a standard RPG like Dragon Age.

@cip_raziel @Laedipiros I did my best but after all the work a skeleton touches your player and you still die...

And I can understand that, but having to do the same thing over and over and over again it's not fun, it's homework...

The game is not based on reward, it's based on punishment, maybe goths will like it.

@RogerioFM @EdAl2112 @mishdogg Like I said, I think(me) the story is amazing. Every character in the game has a great story, background, motivation, agenda, etc. The lore is the best in recent RPGs.
