Some beach!! So I bought the first dlc that came out today. I haven't played in quite a while and just remembered I went to ng+ And not that far into ng+. Dlc is accessible a bit into the game. I guess I go for it in ng+ or start a new character. Either way it will take some time to actually play the dlc

Which game series are you playing again? Dark Souls is it?

Yeah as a seasoned veteran you know ish don't come easy in the Souls series!

Artorias of the Abyss was like that to right, hell IIRC one could even screw up the exact sequence of events to get the abyssal port to open up, thus being forced to finish off that NG just to have another opportunity to do it right. Lol.

Yeah, Dark Sous II. The new DLC (First of 3) just hit..

Haha, good point. They waited until I went to NG+ to announce the DLC.

I don't even know how people figured out the Artorias of the Abyss on their own. I had to read up on how to access it. I doubt I would find the Dark Souls II DLC either as I would have no reason to go back to that spot normally..

Bought the game last week.

Brutal again! (I played Demon's Soul and Dark Souls previously so I knew what I was into)

I'm stuck on the first boss.. can't seem to beat it. If only I could summon someone but I don't see signs and can't figure out how to.

Use your human effigy, have to be human to summon.

Or if you found a soapstone(don't need to be human to get summoned), use it to get summoned, and help the summoner. When you're transported back to your world, if the summoner or yourself have not died, you will be in human form.

Are you human form? If not, that could be an issue. I think most have NPC summons as well.

I think I was hallowed the whole time, hence why I couldn't summon...!

I haven't found the soapstone but know where I can now so I'll probably do it tonight.

I was able to get summoned quickly and beated the boss so I turned Human again.

Spent some time farming him since I was getting summoned really quickly. Farmed ~70k (5-6k a pop with my kill for ~10k). Bought some gears and some levels upgrade.

On to the next challenge!


I also joined the Blue Covenant and got invaded. My blue protecter was at 1/10 of his life when he joined... but we still won

It's definitely still a cool game, glad to hear there are still plenty of low level players out there for you to interact with as well.

I was worried at first and was happily surprised by how quick I was summoned

Maybe the DLC convinced people to replay the game or the drop in price (now 39,99$ regular price where I am at least) was enough for people to bite (like me) and IIRC, it launched the same day as Reaper of Souls (D3 xpac) hence, why I skipped it first. But now people are bored of RoS

The announcement I've been waiting for:

Dark Souls II is headed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next year, complete with DLC, a visual upgrade and a bunch of gameplay refinements.

Set for an April 2015 release, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will include The Lost Crowns Trilogy DLC, made up of Crown of the Sunken King, Crown of the Old Iron King ans Crown of the Ivory King.

The new-gen versions of the game will also feature will updated visuals, rebalanced gameplay, a higher maximum number of players in online games, additional and more challenging enemies, a new NPC, "expanded lore" and new in-game events.

But it's not just PS4 and Xbox One owners that get in on the action. Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin is also coming to Xbox 360 and PS3. It includes all the same stuff, minus the visual upgrade.

Existing owners of Dark Souls II owners will also receive the aforementioned gameplay improvements as part of a free patch.

Good thing.

I finished the game ~ a month ago. I don't plan on picking it up for PS4 or the complete edition for PS3 but it might make bite the bullet to a friend of mine for PS4.. but I think he'll ragequit before finishing the game
