Re: Dark Souls II

The thought did cross my mind, there's certainly a lot of lore there to work from (kind of) if indeed they did want to make a sequel. The Dark Souls story can be interpreted in lots of different ways though.

More news about DS 2

 

  1. Miyazaki is no longer the director but supervisor
  2. The new director is Shibuya known for his work for Monster hunter, he is a new member to Fromsoft and has had no expericence with the soul series
  3. DS 2 according to edge and words from shibuya that it will be easier to understand and follow, now that could mean anything to a better tutorial for new players or knowing where to go to proceed to the game
  4. Namco and fromsoft have both said that they wish to attract a larger auidence

To be fair im not to pleased that miyazaki is no longer the director as he loves bringing the puzzles and speculation to the souls series.

 

Also have to say i didnt like it when they use the term a new hero, does this mean they are removing the custom character. I know know its early days yet but ohhhhhhhhh.....

Re: Dark Souls II

Here are my top 8 changes I would like to see in Dark Souls II please.

 

  • No stupid placement of AI, seriously no enjoyed being chump shoved off the edge  by that arrow shooting Black Knight.
  • Only ghosts able to hit you through walls, seriously why have a wall if an enemy can hit me straight through it.
  • Better net code so Multiplayer works.
  • Able to invite and chat to buddies, I mean come on its a game afterall, but like the Borderlands series the more players the tougher the enemies.
  • No "fake help" in other words you cannot bring a "freindly black phantom" through a "blue phantom" symbol.
  •  Improved graphics.
  • Challenge dungeons, a weekly dungeon is opened where every week a new challenge is made but costs souls to enter.
  • Return of the Mana bar, seriously my pyromancer went all "sppedy ninja" because of the limited "spell use system"

Saw this interview with Dark Souls director on Polygon today, he assures fans that they'll be protecting the core experience. An interesting read for those with concerns about Dark Souls II is shaping up.

Re: Dark Souls II

Just give us a stone only friends can see, voice comms and don't turn it into another Dragon Age/Skyrim wannabe in an attempt to reach a mass market.

 

Although with an ex-Monster Hunter director behind the wheel, I'm not too worried. MH and DS share a kindred spirit... And if DS were to go in an MH direction, that wouldn't be a bad thing.
