ah...i hoped against hope that my link would actually be 'let through', the first demo footage still looks better then anything now from this game. if only durante could do his magic to turn it into that what it should have been :( the dark was supposed to be such a good game mechanic and a huge boost for the atmosphere

the 60 FPS makes such a huge difference! I SHOULD'VE WAITED, FUCK.....

The hardest NON-boss in this game are the lava lizards beneath the castle in the Forest of Giants!  Those guys are actually tougher than some of the actual bosses - and that's a fact!!!

Is Tom going to comment on Dark Souls 2 or what?  He a huge fan of the series and I haven't heard a peep out of him about the game yet.

Graphics and animations like an indie game make in Unity 3D, controls are horrible compare to the first game, click mouse buttons too quick and your character end up doing nothing... I wonder if the developer even bother to use mouse and keyboard to play their own game. Dark souls is a much better game in my experience.

Through the first few hrs of gameplay it doesn't seem as "dark" as the previous game. Dark Souls 1 felt like I had woken up into a serious nightmare. This one seems like I'm just playing a good action-rpg game.

Controls are still kinda clunky and the graphics could be better. But don't worry, PC gamers will fix the game again. We've already started.

Wow. Screen taring, FPS drops, clunky movements, and poor texturing being show in the trailer?! Obviously they are showing off the best of what they have to offer.... makes me worried about the actual game. What does it look like when its no 100%?

They are finally showing what the game REALLY looks like?!  It's kinda effed up that they still show misleading advertisements on the website though.  I WISH the Looking Glass Knight looked that good...

I just started playing, and while the voice acting and graphics are decent, though not ground breaking (thought way better than the consoles), I'm not sure about the gameplay yet. It doesn't help that it is so obviously ported over, even the bloody console buttons are still represented in the tutorials...

The launch trailer should just show a white screen, and then a crash to desktop over and over for 1:25. Because that is all a large portion of the PC gamer are getting to play at this point!!

@elessarGObonzo Really? To me this game is a nightmare that make the first game feel like walking through wonderland, thank to the irresponsible controls and boring graphic.

@push88 actually, even this, the pc version, is in lesser quality then that first demo of the game.

@RELeon  You're obviously lying or something is wrong with your computer.  The game runs fine.

@RELeonReally?  I made to level 40 yesterday without a single glitch or crash.  I must be one of the lucky ones.

@Revenant_K @elessarGObonzo literally waking up into a "serious nightmare" in a good way, not meaning a bad gaming experience. DS2 just seems like another rpg in another fantasy world, not half as intriguing or scary as DS1 or Demon Souls.

@push88 @RELeon  Lol yeah me and the other countless players that can't even open the game without a crash at this point. We must all be lying, right? We all lied so well, Namco/From Software even went public about getting 3rd party modders to help fix the "fake" problem we claim to have.

@RELeon @push88only problem I had was having to install wmp codecs to run in-game videos. game would crash as opening scenes tried to start. try windows update "Windows6.3-KB2835517-x64" if running 8.1.
