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.
