They're review copies, so there are critics' thoughts on the game by the time the game launches.

Plus no one has to watch the footage that's up.

Actually it's people who bought the Japanese copy on their X1 most likely.

Mind blanked on Japanese release, damn they got the game already.

Jim Sterling said he got a review copy though; supposedly it's crashed on him a hundred times. Went to skip through his 25 minute upland to find English text but chickened out because of spoilers. I saw SOMETHING big.

Re: Dark Souls III (April 12th, 2016) - EMBRACE THE DARKNESS (Spoiler Thread After April 12th)

So, as someone who is new to the Souls games I'm planning on getting DS 2 for the Xbox One today. Any tips? I know literally nothing about the universe other than the game play videos I have watched. It seems a bit overwhelming to me when they are talking about hollowing and how this adds this perk to that perk and I see the upgrade screen and there are all these stats and it looks like you're looking at a plate of spaghetti. I understand the games are difficult and that's fine. I noticed in DS 1 you were more in one continuous area whereas in DS 2 you kind of travel around a bit. Does it make it more confusing? I know as an absolute, never touched the game noob I have tons of shit to learn and discover, I'm just finding it slightly intimidating. Especially since the version I am buying is the holy shit version of DS 2 apparently with all the DLC and they redid some things. Apparently it's supposed to be the hardest version of the game, especially in the beginning, so that makes me slightly nervous as well.

Learning to two-hand and not rely on your shield will get you far.

The best tip I can give a first time player to Dark Souls is not to take or ask for any tips. Go in blind and figure things out for yourself. It will be a far more enjoyable experience for you.

Man can't wait for this just 19 days! Everything I'm playing right now just feels like a place-holder until Dark Souls 3 comes out (which removes a bit of the shine, admittedly).

Finally Pre-Ordered this beast. First time going into a Souls game completely blind (although, I was mostly blind for Bloodborne despite picking it up about 3 months after release).

Also, if anyone is interested in pre-ordering this, Simply Games have it at a great price. Got it for less than 40 with shipping.

19 Days!

Take your time in the tutorial section. Learn the basics and repeat the area a couple times (you'll likely die anyways so no problems redoing the area).

Also, if an area is too hard, it's probably because you've gotten there too soon or you need to level up a little bit or upgrade your weapon.
