Our videos of Scholar of the First Sin

Our videos of Scholar of the First Sin

Even though the game is only supposed to be released in a few days, we completely randomly found the PS4 version of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin at a major shop in Paris the other day. So we captured these 5 videos (one missing to be put up later today), showing the very beginning of the game and a few fights around Majula. This PS4 version seems to be nearly locked at 60 fps, with very few frame drops so far.

Someone Platinumed bloodborne in 41 hours

As for me, I only finished my first and second ending in 30 hrs, it'll take more time to explore in the world of bloodborne

Maybe later I'll try Ds2, but this really looks last-gen compared to bb

Well, of course it's going to look last gen - what did you expect?

Close to Tomb Raider, Dragon Age? As all of them are cross-gen

Ds2 did have PC port back then, so I guess this game could do better
Even nvidia uses Ds2 to show off their new tech

Planning on getting this for my Xbox One. I'm expecting it to be on par with the PS4 version, but i don't get it why Namco Bandai only shows PS4 footage all the time. Would've liked to see some Xbox One footage.

Same reason 360 was the only version shown last gen. The market leader is almost always the platform shown. The only time this isn't true is w/ exclusive marketing deals. Giantbomb had this question pop up once on their podcast and this is the answer they gave.

Lol, who was playing? Getting owned pretty badly.

Graphics definitely werent re-done. I'll be getting this as i skipped buying DS2 first go around. Played it and everything, and am actually playing it again right now getting ready for this. Its crazy how you go about your second playthrough compared to the first. I literally basically farmed each area as i got to it. By the time i made it to Iron Keep, i was level 100, and could pretty much 2-3 hit kill anything. None of the bosses have given me trouble yet really either. I suspect new enemy placement, more shortcuts, and newer content will add to the difficulty, and shake things up for me a bit. Plus since i never actually owned it, i can play multiplayer this time around, which will add another dimension to the game itself.

The textures and lighting effects are much improved. Graphics are still the same though. No matter, I will double dip and get this again.
