i've played DS2 it was hard but not as hard as this game.
it's really really hard, i coudn't even get souls. i get and then i lost all the souls everytime, and coudn't level up.
then i was trying to level up with some noob methods. yeah that was good.
there is no teleport until anor londo, there is shortcuts from on location to another but cmon bonfire must can teleport.
monsters respawning all the time no matter how many times u killed them, they,re keep respawning.
but it's dark souls, and i think how many times u die, u're getting stronger in real life. i love dark souls. i'm stronger than everybody who didn't play dark souls yet.
