I'm only about 14 hours into Dark Souls 2 right now, but so far I have found it a lot easier. I've beaten a couple bosses on my first try, something I think I did maybe once in the original dark souls. I've still had a lot of fun with it, but I wish I felt a little more challenge from the game. Maybe it gets harder, I'll have to see.

I played Witcher 1 before the 2nd came out and absolutely loved it, but I do think Witcher 2 is a better game. Still have a soft spot for the first game though, so I'd suggest starting with that.

Forrest Gump is so good. Great movie, think I might have cried at a scene or two the first time I saw it.

Playing on the 360, I haven't noticed anything like this.

I had a lot of fun with it, it was a great game. I think it could have had a better story - the ending especially is sudden and a letdown. However, the mechanics are pretty great and it is a fun and satisfying game to play. Go play it!

I've only played the games for a couple hours but I honestly haven't been bothered by the frame rate so far, except for one significant hitch I had. Not sure if I'm just lucky or if other people have been playing a lot of PC games.

Honestly, I didn't feel like the violence was "amped up" at all from any other action game I've played. The only time I cringed was the first time I saw Lara get impaled by one of those spikes in the river.

I liked the game, but it definitely had its problems with story. Many of the characters seemed thin (including Lara herself), motivations weren't always clear. My problems with the story have nothing to do with any sexualization of Lara, though. I felt like they didn't treat her any differently from her male counterparts in other action games.

I definitely use "you guys" as a unisex term. I've never really had anyone become offended by it, at least to my knowledge.

I really enjoyed the combat also, I don't really understand the hate it gets.
