Expected. Japanese developers are really talented. Dark Souls/Demons Soul are the pinnacle of current RPG. I've yet to play an RPG that can topple those.

I don't even think the clone Lord Of the Fallen would come on par with Dark Souls/Demons SOul.

Yes. One of the first rings you find in the game bumps you back up partially though.

So plus one to the post count? :P

Solid score. I expected somewhere around an 8 or 9. With the old scoring scale, my expectations would include the 8.5 range.
I'll pick it up sometime in the future.

Yea, a number of things, also sounds like if you were a fan of the 1st, this hype from it might leave this a bit difficult to swallow. Also, it is technically last gen gaming, and I'm not sure we've ever seen a game score higher than a 9. Might be mistaken, but if that is the case, than it is ok.

Just hope the pvp is better this time around. The lag of the original dark souls really kept me from ever really getting hooked. I always wanted to play a 0 poise just balls to the wall skill based build... but i felt like the lag kept that type of playstyle from ever being viable for pvp. Here is to hoping the days of crazy phantom range, lagstabs, and having to pre-parry are all over... but for some reason I have a feeling the netcode is going to be just as bad.

I love Dark Souls, but never beat it. I was always too nervous going up against bosses :3

In a way yes, you had less HP in Soul form but in Dark Souls II case if you keep dying in Hollow you lose HP with each subsequent death.

If you own a PC atm it must be impossible to be bored. Feel sorry for next gen only console owners.
