Glad to hear it! Although isn't Bloodborne coming in March, right before this? I wonder if that will hurt sales of this? Maybe it will be priced to move!

Glad to hear. I still haven't played the last gen version.

This is a remake?

I just assumed it was Dark Souls II with the DLC built in. So for old gen it will be a "deluxe edition" or something.

Exactly. With a next gen facelift.

Don't expect too much, the PC version wasn't exactly awe inspiring.

On the PS4 and Xbox 1 you can have six people playing online. Might help fighting some hard bosses easier. Suppose to have some new NPC also on all console I believe.

I found DaSII disappointing compared to the first game, but I'll still rebuy it for PS4. Disappointing or not it's still a lot better than most modern games. For example I think the reason I found Shadow of Mordor a snoozefest for the last half was simply because it was too fricking easy for me.

Time to go trade in my copy to Gamestop or Amazon before the trade value plummets, I saw Amazon's trade in dropped two bucks since the announcement last night already.

Funny though I just bought the second DLC a couple of weeks ago, but I got distracted playing Bayonetta 2 and (oldschool) Heroes of Might and Magic 3, lately, instead of playing the DLC.

Anyone else pick this up? I'm new to the "Souls" games and am enjoying the hell out of Bloodborne. I ended up picking this up for the X1. I fired it up for a few minutes, just to get it started and I immediately died via some damn demon piglets in Majula. I love you FROM Software!

Re: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (PS4, Xbox One)
 
Yeah, I'm curious how this compares to Bloodborne? I've seen a few people play Dark Souls II on PC but haven't given it a chance myself, though I did try DSI for an hour or so, didn't really get into it.

I'm absolutely loving Bloodborne though.

I picked it up but haven't messed with it yet. I am hoping for a patch because I heard there is a bug or something and weapons degrade way too fast.

Yes, I have it and they degrade far too quickly. If one breaks before you can get to a bonfire then it is really expensive to repair.

I picked it up and I'm enjoying the hell out of it, again. Dark Souls at 60fps is glorious.

The durability thing can be annoying sometimes, but From has said that it's intentional. A patch is unlikely. I get around it by carrying at least 2 good weapons that I can switch between. Also, repair powder.

Re: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (PS4, Xbox One)
 
Hah it's like they went back, saw how people were playing the game and decided "You're playing it wrong."

Re: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (PS4, Xbox One)
 
I had a total of four summoners to take out the Pursuer boss and he was down in a few seconds, I just sat back and watch. :lol:

Lots of changes in this game for example.
Spoiler:
There a dragon on the top platform in Heide's Tower of Flame. I think I come back when I'm more powerful to take it out later.

I got pounded today by four of those ninja-steel turtles.

I'm breezing quite fine right now. Just defeated the Old Iron King boss and tried to access to the dlc but don't have the key to unlock the door yet.

Good news, they are fixing the weapon degradation bug.

That's good to hear, but it doesn't help me much now. Already finished 3 playthroughs and 1000 GS. Glad it will make things a bit easier for others, though.

Early in game weapons break in 10 minutes. No place to repair or buy new ones. Down to last weapon that I can't carry. Suggestions?

RichC2 04-23-15 07:52 AM

Re: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (PS4, Xbox One)
 
Wait for the patch?

kegman 04-23-15 11:18 AM

Re: Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (PS4, Xbox One)
 
Is the patch for the xbox one version? I think I started off going the wrong way. I went through heides tower first. I would hate to completely run out of weapons
