    Two Joystiq Writers Discuss their time with the DaS2 Demo

    Post by StiffNipples on Fri Jun 21, 2013 3:28 am

    Really well writen article, no rumour mongering and some good info and insights.

    Of note:

    - Instead of kick you now you give enemies a shove with your weapon hand. The power of that shove changes based on the weapon you have. The heavier the weapon, the more force you can push them with to make additional space. But, heavy weapon means longer animation. Short weapons don't give much space, but it's faster. Whether the kick returns, however, is still undecided, a Namco rep told says.

    "And while everyone was scouring the show floor to see next-gen stuff, Dark Souls 2 was the most-requested assignment from the entire Joystiq staff. For something launching this March on current-gen systems, that says a lot. We're all masochistic."

    The whole push thing is gonna make bs' ing easier with small weapons since it will stun You for enough time to get in a bs, specially since smaller weapons don't put as much space between you and your opponent like bigger weapons do. I hope they realize that.

    I think it's a little premature to jump to any sort of conclusions yet.

    Smaller shoves might have quicker recoveries than longer shoves for instance.

    If the kick comes back I want a major boost if its used in PVP.
    (Kick power was fine in PVE I thought)

    Kick vs. A blocking shield = Big stamina drain to the person getting kicked.

    Also want a Patches Ring.
    When worn = x4 kicking power!
    When worn and your character looks like Patches = x8 kicking power!
    Hurrah
