Did You Decide On Dark Souls II or Titanfall?

With the epic launch of both Dark Souls II and Titanfall, which did you choose?

by

North America had quite the game launch at midnight for March 11th; hours of eager anticipation for two absolutely epic games, Dark Souls II and Titanfall.

Dark Souls II, by From Software and Namco Bandai Games, is the highly anticipated sequel of Dark Souls, which is famous and a favorite among its fans for its high brutality and extreme difficulty. The story revolves around a cursed undead character trying to find a cure. Dark Souls II is an action role-playing game set in an open world environment, developed for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Titanfall, by Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts for Xbox One, PC and Xbox 360 (releases later this month), is a next-gen FPS where players fight in online multiplayer-only matches set on a war-torn planet as mech-style Titans and their pilots. The game is loaded with weapons, maps, and even monsters. Having been lucky enough to play the beta, I can tell you how amazing the graphics and gameplay are. You can't help but feel unstoppable inside your Titan.

I had the great privilege of getting my copy of Titanfall at midnight on the East Coast and I can't express how awesome this game is! I love it enough to have gone ahead and thank Vince Zampella on Twitter for such an epic game and told him to rest up since he's earned time to relax. This was the reply that I received:

Xbox had their own fun reply to the man himself.

Now don't get me wrong, I want Dark Souls II just as much, but since I want it for my PC, I sadly have to wait for that launch on April 25th.

So, which epic game did you decide on--or did you go with both?

    I hear there'll be a lot of that going especially after how they changed your health after you die.

    Still waiting on the PC release of Dark Souls 2 that should come out on April 25th. Once it does I'll be playing it and will possibly write an article on it. I've been very skeptical about it since it's announcement though, and can only hope that From Software proves my fears wrong.

    I'm waiting for PC for it as well. According to a review from IGN, the changes they made make it a bit harder but there are ways to get around until you level up higher. I'm very much looking forward to it.

    I have mixed feelings about dark souls 2. The graphics look gritty, and alternate wildly between inspired and just muddy and a mess that looks like an indie game.

    I like the old crawler-sorts of games — another new one is Deep down. Older is Torchlight II. Deep down and TL2 have something that I don't know that DS2 has: randomly generated maps. That's a pretty important thing for replay-ability.

    But I have absolutely zero interest in Titanfall, so... yea this is better. (I'm looking forward to Kingdom under Fire 2, Deep down, and maybe Black Desert if it isn't too plot-clingy)
