The Flying Grayson, Nightwing, Robin, They were about more than fight moves. They were about inspiration, comfort, trust, family. I gave that up to become a spy. a Spider man; A Tsuchigumo. I have changed.

Well, I would rather fear a charge from a black knight with a greatsword. I really had hard time against them though. Smiley Very Happy

I did my 1st playthrough a few days ago. Awesome game, love it.

 

I do have to say though I found it easier than Dark Souls (about on par with Demon's Souls). I think the main things that made it easier are the lack of any uber hard boss battles (like 4 Kings or Smoegh/Orienstien), those healing crystals and the ability to fast travel from the start with bonfires. Ultimately I do think Dark Souls 2 is the best game in the series so far, just a bit on the easy side for fans of series. 

 

If/when they make a Dark Souls 3 (or whatever) hopefully they will use everything that worked in DS2 and have a few more super difficult spots like in Dark Souls and make it so your estus flask is the only means to heal other than spells and super rare items.



I love JRPGs, but hate anime... Is that legal?

I agree, it felt much easier for me too

 

There is optional difficulty and NG+ is indeed a challenge, but the Capra Demon owned me many times in DKS1 and I did not have this issue with DKS2.

 

I think the warping everywhere was necessary for the world they built, but certainly detrimental to the feel of the game - I found myself using it all the time just like you fastravel everywhere in Skyrim xD

Yeah, the warping kept there from being a "hopeless" moment in the game. For me (and others I hear) in Dark Souls after ringing the bell below blight town I really started to wonder if I would ever make it back up. Luckly I had enough moss, but the fear was still there and that feeling when I made it to a bonfire on the surface was awesome. There was really nothing that felt like this in DS2.
