Dark Souls II got a 90% from M! Games. For context, Demon's Souls got 82%, and Dark Souls got 88%, so this is the highest rated Souls game yet.

Can't wait!

Would've preferred they did another spiritual successor like Danger Souls

Dark Souls brings you to tears, while A Link Between Worlds bores me to tears. Fitting.

That brand value is too lucrative to ignore.

Not finishing an easy as **** game is less shameful than finishing a game tailor built around challenge?

That extra 2% is for making it more like Skyrim.

I am not stuck at all lol.

I started the game, played it a fair bit, lost my save file in an Xbox migration, and cannot be arsed to start it again is all. I really do like the game, but these days, I've been looking for gaming that's a bit less... stressfully engaging :p

The SOuls games.

Link Between Worlds is more fucking Zelda. The Souls games on the flip side are fantastic. You chose to not finish fantastic things. You are scum.

I was talking about shame involved in not finishing a more difficult game versus an easier one -_-

Also, as I explain, me not finishing Dark Souls is due to some very bad luck xD

Hopefully the framerate is fixed and the game's a little less amateur in design. Don't get me wrong, Dark Souls is excellent, but it isn't short on flaws. That's for sure.

There is no shame in not finishing Zelda.

It's Zelda. Big whoop.

Oh please you and your Crapcom gtfo!!! Deep Down is like 1/10 of the Souls quality and don't even try with the "you haven't even played it", you can clearly see how shitty Deep Down is gonna be.

DARK SOULS II is one of the few games that needs to be almost the same as their predecessors, Dark Souls I because we want Dark Souls games to stay the way they are.

I hope this game becomes a massive hit.....

LOL at Sony asking Capcom to make Deep Down.........

How can you expect anything from someone like Capcom.......?

They are way down the pit alongside Kojima.

Ok well seen as Chaz derailed his own topic I'll say 90% is a great score and I expected nothing less from the sequel to one of the best games ever

I would certainly hope so. They say they rebuilt the engine completely, and that it performs better. Particularly the PC version, which will have real graphics options and no framerate cap this time.

It seems like the scope of conversation for this game has been limited by PC gamers jerking off to their slightly better performance than 7-8+ year old consoles. Never mind that they never got Demon's Souls and had to wait a whole year for Dark Souls. This is all that matters.

And of course the first inflammatory comments made in this thread are by PC gamers. No other group of gamers is pathetic enough to extract their self-worth from their video game platform of choice that they had nothing to do with.

Say what you will, but at least Hitler shaved somewhat regularly and didn't substitute Mountain Dew and Cheetos for a diet.

I never beat dark souls. (My 360 red ringed for a second time. Ugh.)

I loved the hell out of Demons Soul's. Beat that one.

Dark Souls II will be great, no doubt.
