You're just contradicting yourself. You like exploration but you don't like architecture? The 3D architecture of polygons that makes up the whole world? But you like finding and interacting with stuff? Finding, as in discovering and using a secret? What dark souls is all about?

Me too. Which is much, much, much, much, much higher than Witcher 2 or Skyrim.

Ok, so you actually agree with me all along?

Better enough, though.

New toys. Loot. The same loot I hope Witcher3 gets. Loot that changes gameplay in the same way Dark Souls weapons change it.

You don't know that.

A lot has been tweaked to make the game less frustrating. Like unlimited carry weight so you can collect every item, the Estus Flask instead of grinding for grass.
