Demons Souls // Dark Souls are my favorite games. I have like 500+ hours of playtime on various Dark Souls characters, but that trailer just seemed off to me. Looks gorgeous but didn't feel look/like a Dark Souls game.

Annd now even less excited

Quote:
As we find out in issue 249, the answers to these questions are in the hands of game directors new to the Souls series, Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura, who have taken the reins from Hidetaka Miyazaki. Their descriptions of how they intend to mould Dark Souls II into a more approachable form seem reasonable. But Shibuya admits that their approach will be influenced by their individual characters. “I personally am the sort of person who likes to be more direct than subtle,” he tells us. “[Dark Souls II] will be more straightforward and more understandable.” We sympathise if that sort of statement concerns you, but at the same time, we can surely agree that we would all like to see Dark Souls attain as great a presence as The Elder Scrolls. How it gets there is a worthy matter for debate, but it’s certainly a noble task.

Dark Souls is so great because of it's subtlety and complexity. Sounds like they just want to make a Skyrim game

As little as I've played Dark Souls, I can pretty easily say that we don't want Elder Scrolls or Dark Souls in the same sentence. :/

If they're nerfing the difficulty, then it's not even worth it.

I doubt they will. I'm sure they're smart enough to realize that the difficulty is what makes people love it so much. Even if they change the feel to something more Elder Scrolls-y (which, in my opinion, would suck) I really doubt they'd nerf the difficulty.

"Making it more accessible" is what worries me most. Dark Souls has such a crazy huge story to it that people wouldn't ever get without actually reading item descriptions/getting secret NPC's. I don't want a strict bad guy and cut scenes spelling the story out. i liked really digging for the story.

It looks like Kalameet (one eyed dragon/an optional boss in the DLC) in the trailer, which makes me assume this might be a prequel which could be cool.

Yeah, I see what you're saying. I like the minimalist plot too. I think that when game developers say these things, though, it's never as extreme as everyone thinks. It'll be a little different, but I'm sure despite that it'll still have that Dark Souls feel.
