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

"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.

starting to worry how the color scheme seems the same for every level. All run down castles and shit. Give me something like the final area in Demons Souls but with enemies I can fight

March 11th (NA) // March 14th (EU)

It's pretty annoying that almost every single video/picture they've released is from the same area of the game and same armor/classes they've initially showed, but still can't wait for this. Still regularly playing Dark Souls.

Are you playing it? I have to wait for the PC version, but it looks SO GOOD.

Yup. It really doesn't feel that much like a souls game to me, which is disappointing. Looks different, feels different. But I'm still really enjoying it despite getting my ass kicked constantly. It's nice to have that fear of the first play through again, having no idea what's going on.

Really? Interesting. I haven't played Demon Souls, but from what I'm reading and hearing, it plays like a combination of both Souls games. What to you didn't feel like a souls game? I'm curious.

It hurts so good. I'm not even on the first boss and I'm experience so much death.

Completely disagree on it not feeling like a souls game. Literally feels the same as Dark Souls to me.

I don't know. It feels kind of sloppy to me, I've only been able to play like 5 hours but something is off.

And again, I am enjoying it. I'm only 5 hours in because I've had work, just killed the first boss and felt damn good about it. So there's that.

There are some spots that are straight up ugly/PS2 graphics haha. Part of my complaint, but also some pretty gorgeous areas.

I'm really enjoying this a ton, but I've found most of the bosses I've faced so far (five, I believe) to be a cakewalk. The levels themselves are classic, challenging Souls but I really hope (and expect) that future bosses pose more of a challenge.

Feel the same about the bosses. Did you fight the boss of the Blue Cathedral yet? Because that fucked my mind

haha yeah, that fight was pretty tough. And fuck these exploding barrels everywhere. I've died more from my summons slashing a barrel than I have from bosses so far

Yeah, fought a few of those already. Super hard to do solo. This game is fucking dense. So many areas, bonfires, NPCs and bosses that you can take on pretty much any time.
