Two days into Dark Souls 2, all around great stuff. I've gotten through 4 bosses (the giant, pursuer, Dragonrider, Old Dragonslayer). I'm in the Wharf now.
Difficult game, definitely earns the title of a Souls game. Not quite as difficult as Dark Souls was, but pretty close. The fun comes from the challenge and methodical pacing of the combat, which this game has in spades.
The only issue I'd say I have right now is the lack of katanas so far, but that's just cause it's my favorite weapon type in the series so it's a preference thing.
Where you at, Side?
