Figured this was newish news, and people outside the OT deserved to know about it.
People playing Dark Souls 2 early have shown that in the current build there are some significant lighting changes which greatly (imo) change the aesthetic of the game from it's initial reveal and the PS3 gameplay shown since then. Of course since the game isn't officially out yet, it is still subject to change, but I think it's good to get the news out there.
