I take back what I said about not having any problems with Dark Souls II. I think I’ve died close to 50 times already. More than half of those deaths were by stupidity to be honest. I can be rolling out of the way from enemies and accidentally fall off the cliff. This has happened so many times already. I want to throw my controller just thinking about it, but that’s a good thing. Only Dark Souls can make me feel that way. It actually took me two hours to find my first boss. I had no idea where I was going or what I was supposed to be doing. Does that sound familiar?
When I finally did make it to the first boss I didn’t expect to be knocked off a cliff. It wasn’t enough room to maneuver and I died about 3 times before I figured out that there was a switch that made the ground rise up so you could have a fair fight with this guy. I felt cheated… and really stupid for not realizing it sooner. After I did that I beat the boss easily because I had more room to maneuver. I timed my rolls perfectly and only went in or a quick strike when he did heavy blows. It took awhile, but it worked and twenty minutes later I was awarded a boss soul for all my trouble.
I decided to head back to Majula to restock on supplies and more importantly level my character up so I can start using some of the preorder bonus items that I got. The weird thing about that is I didn’t preorder this game and still got the items. Dark Souls II is a true Souls game. You’re going to die a lot, but not from the enemies. At least not in my case. I died a lot from the environments because I roll to damn much and when I do bother to block it doesn’t help. That might be because I’m just a squishy mage.
I also had a chance to fight that knight from the trailer of the game. I beat him easily with my spells. I tried talking to him but couldn’t so I killed him. I hope that decision doesn’t bit me in the ass later on in the game.
