I don't care, I'm waiting for PC

Edited by IzunaDrop

@vinny nooooo I thought you were waiting with us PC guys :( I mean I COULD buy it tomorrow on a weaker system at a higher price, and then I COULD listen to this shittalk on the bus after I'd played for a couple of days.

Instead I will bookmark all of this for 6 weeks time. Enjoy, everybody :)

Posted by Amikron

This is fantastic. I'm all for more content like this on the site, thanks you guys!

Posted by DaveKap

@izunadrop I'm with you. I thought Brad was going to wait for PC but nnnnnnope. I'll be happy to listen to this late April!

Posted by Mercury45

This is what I've been waiting for. These guys talking Dark Souls is oddly entertaining for me.

Posted by weegieanawrench

AWWW yes, Dark Souls time all the time.

Posted by Hassun

I guess I'll be listening to this a few months from now.

Edited by Trilogy

Fuck waiting for PC. I'm gonna go get a copy now!

Thanks for this bonuscast, duders! ;)

Edited by ChrisTaran

It's a wealth of podcasts today! Praise the sun!

Posted by Chrjz

Everyone is so keen on avoiding information about this game and I sort of get it; but, honestly, I beat Dark Souls after watching Vinny play it and I think it made my experience better.

Posted by kishinfoulux

Will this be available in the feed? Or only here?

Same here. Also goes for the live show they're doing tomorrow of it.

Edited by Milkman

As someone who likes hearing about Dark Souls but has no real interest in playing it, this is pretty much perfect.

@vinny: The survibility stat and your % of equip load impacts the speed at which you can parry/roll and PUT UP YOUR SHIELD. If you want an instant shield up you'll have to reduce your equip load and/or put many points into survibility because it boost your agility (the speed stat)

Posted by Emperor_Norton

Guys... there's a reason why there are a bunch of ballistas in the Pursuer fight area...

Posted by pyrodactyl

1-I'm pretty sure the number of spawn points scrolls down because I'm almost full and not nearly at the end

2-Vinny, your equip load makes you put up your shield slower, remove your armor and you'll see the difference

@emperor_norton: I'm really surprised to hear everybody had so much trouble with The Pursuer cause I beat him my first try. Pretty easy boss I thought.

I think you mean Adaptability?

Posted by tourgen

really cool show! I think I might just get it on ps3 and PC.

Posted by JoeyRavn

This is something that I'll have to save for... well, the end of next month, when the game is released on PC.

Its a great idea its the part where they are slow to fire and he likes charging at you and shattering them that makes it a bit tricky.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

While I would usually be all for this website turning into www.giantsouls.com, I can't play DS2 until late April and I'm going to attempt (and fail) to keep myself mostly spoiler free for once. So this podcast just serves to sit here and taunt me.

yes

It's Agility specifically which is influenced by Adaptability and Attunement.

Edited by 2HeadedNinja

The bad thing is that I too have to wait till next month ... good thing is I can finally actually play Dark Souls ... I ordered DS2 just because the coverage on the site get me excited for it.

@gyoru: oh wow. that's why I'm dying so much on my super bulky dude huh? Thanks for the heads up

Posted by Oldirtybearon

I've put over 11 hours into Dark Souls 2 so far. I've beaten four bosses (judging by their unique souls, there were a few others that didn't drop unique souls) and I have no fucking idea what they're talking about in the opening few minutes.

It's pretty amazing to me that Dark Souls 2 is so wide open. Pick a direction and go. Maybe I've done some areas out of order, maybe they did, but it kind of sucks that they're talking about some cool, killer shit and I'm stuck in the new Valley of Defilement/Blighttown. In a way Dark Souls 2 is like the Arkham City to the original's Arkham Asylum. Dark Souls 1 was a very interconnected game with levels often looping back in on themselves, while Dark Souls 2 is far more sprawling and open. That interconnected nature of the level design is still there, but it's less prevalent, I think.

I'm also finding myself running into every wall and swinging it with my giant fuck-off sized Greatsword. It's ruining the blade's durability but I have to know the secrets.

Early GOTY contender I'm thinking.

Posted by LarryDavis

@izunadrop: @davekap: Why don't you guys just do what I did, get a month of gamefly for 10 bux, play through game that way, then get it later on PC?

That is, if I like it enough to actually buy it. Which, so far, might not be the case.

Posted by eccentrix

Referring to Dark Souls as 'the first one' is really confusing to me.

Edited by Dberg

Gonna have to wait so long to listen to this :( Damn that PC release date

Edited by Mister_V

Did they record this in a server room?

Posted by DrPotato

I will not listen to these for another 7 weeks. I'm sad now.

Edited by smokyexe

It's going to be hard to skip all this contend up to end of April. Oh well.

Edited by Y2Ken

Very much looking forward to this Dark Souls II content. I'm with the GB guys; PC is the version I will probably play the most, but a month and a half was too long for me to wait on this one, so the PS3 version it is for now. Still a really solid experience, though.

I kinda agree with you, it will be fun to reach the bosses and areas they talk about and say "Oh THAT'S what they meant. Holy shit man, that's awesome!"

Also I've heard this game is over 60 hours long (compared to Demons Souls 25 hours and Dark Souls 40 hours) so I think we'll be allright :P

Edited by Parsnip

I guess I'll save this for later.

Edited by rmanthorp

This is incredible. I'm not even planning to play DSII but the chatter from these two is like two crazies.

Same here. It's annoying that they are doing so much DS2 coverage and I have to avoid all of it for weeks.

Edited by Hoecake

If you had told me giantbomb dot com would be to go to site for hot new dark souls content back when I had suffered through the Demon Souls quick look I would have slapped you. Not that I'm complaining it's great seeing you guys being as excited as I am.

Now if my PS3 didn't die on me I wouldnt have to avoid all info for a month. I guess it's all right since most of my friends are gonna get it on PC aswell so I'll have my little bubble of zeitgeist when it finally arrives.

Edited by Bats

So much awesome content. Can I manage? Hell.yes.

Edited by Ravelle

Man, I have to save all these streams and podcasts for when I've played some more.

Edited by AMyggen

@mister_v: Heh, from what I gather they recorded it at on of their desks with a pretty standard recording device. So no podcast quality :)

edit: I understand what you're talking about with that constant humming. Hmmm..
