Several hours in,finished my first boss battle.A few things I've noticed so far:
Framerate jump is really nice.So far everything seems to run smoothly,haven't encountered a single hiccup,let alone turn into molasses stew like Dark Souls I.
Mapping jump button to left stick still feels a bit odd,but works better than double tapping run.Curious to try out dual wielding,but having a shield has been a bit of a lifesaver early on.
In regards to some of the graphical/crash issues (HDMI,AMD,etc.) I haven't noticed much.At the moment I haven't tried playing via HDMI,but at the moment my Radeon card hasn't had any problems.I wouldn't mind testing out via HDMI,as well as running the game at different settings to see what happens.
Messaging:Best upgrade of the game by far! that is... Praise the Sun!
As it stands,I've really enjoyed what I've played so far,looking forward to what lies ahead and to what everyone else's thoughts are.
