Day 1
Same here. But I'm getting this for PC this time. After playing the beta I can see that this game is choking them dying consoles and the performance just isn't good enough. I'd pick up a next gen version if they made one though.

Certainly is a day one for me as well, just need to figure out what version to get. The regular collectors or the retardedly expensive super collectors mystery box :P

Also, I'm a bit conflicted about the armor sets. I mean it's nice to see the leather, knight and brigand set return i guess but i suppose i was hoping for less recycling :P

It's more or less like the first Dark Souls. Totally playabe, but there's a lot of slowdown and dips below 30fps (Demon's Souls was far smoother than Dark Souls). But on PC the game will easily run at 1080p and 60 fps, especially if it will be better optimized than the 1st one. I'd like to see Dark Souls 2 on ps4 though. PC like performance + no cheaters and hackers.

    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (6 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (6 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (6 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (6 Hours ago)
