Hey! Really excited to pick this up. Probably going to pick it up in about 3-4 days, and I was wondering about some things:
1) What difficulty ( if there are difficulty options ) would you recommend playing this on? I generally pick "Hard" or "Very Hard" in most of my video games, as normal just bores me, but every game and thus every difficulty option is different. I have a fairly high tolerance to difficulty ( beat meat boy, xcom on hard ironman, roguelikes .. ) but I kind of don't like constant bullshit deaths ( CoD 4 pinpoint grenade spam anyone? ). So .. where does the game fall, and what would you recommend based on the information I provided ?
2) Can someone give a good, quick explanation of the pawn system? I played the demo of the original DD and it seemed like they are user-created AI companions that you can access but.. I was wondering how it gets balanced, if the creator gets any benefit and why there is threads of renting them out. I'd like to participate / help out if i can but it'd help if I understand the system first.
3) I tend to get somewhat OCD in my video games when it comes to loot, sidequests and anything missable and I was wondering if this is a game that is recommended to play with a FAQ or not. I'd say for example that Dark Souls, especially if you look to learn all the secrets and hidden things, is definitely a game you need a FAQ for as it explains itself very poorly.
4) Soda, Tea or Coffee ?
Edit: 5) Bonus question! Are you locked into a single class / career path or can you change it easilly throughout the game. What I mean is, is it feasible to make a warrior, then switch to be a archer for a bit to freshen up gameplay, and then be a stabby stabby rogue and finish the game as a wizard, or is it more Dark Souls / Skyrim like where you invest permanent skill points and would do terrible outside of your specialization?
