I love starting new games much more. I rarely go past new game+.
Are you on PS4, if so do you want any co-op?

I am not I'm afraid

next game, I'll use the battle axe and dragon bow as usual but then try greatsword (instead of mastodon halberd) and uchigatana (instead of claymore)

I personally love NG+, I'm at NG+4 with my main, already at Looking Glass Knight. But starting new games is always so much fun!

I hate using Soul Vessels, so I just start a new game to make a new build.

Ah, I see. I was going to see if you wanted some jolly co-op. I just started a new character today.

Most of the time, I like NG+ because I hate losing my stuff. I'm NG+14 on Demon Souls. But it's also fun to start over with a completely different character. DS2 is the only PS3 disc I still own, so I'm thinking about getting digital version on PS4 and starting over.

When doing a no death run? Yeah.
When doing a no bonfire run? Ng+.
Other than that? Ng.

With one or two exceptions of course.

When I return to the game after spending some time away, I always go into a NG run. But when I'm really into it I usually keep going with NG+ since it lets you test out a bunch of cool weapons much easier, which is my favorite thing to do in DkS2.

I almost always start at NG, I like the experience of making leveling choices along the way, to get a real feel of what it is like to go through the game with a certain build, etc. I don't get the same feel from respeccing. Only time I NG+ is if I want to go through the game with a weapon you don't get until way late.
