    Do you want the next Souls game to be more similar to Demon or Dark Souls?

    Post by justwant2play on Tue Oct 09, 2012 5:36 pm

    I badly miss Demon's Souls. Unfortunately, even though the server is still active I hardly see anyone there (and my character is only at level 90).

    I miss the way the world is designed in a breathtaking and creepy way in Demon's Souls. I find the atmosphere in Dark Souls a bit too cliche and uninspiring (how can one compare Blightttown with Valley of Defilement?).

    Just wondering if anyone here feels the same way.

    I think Dark and Demon's are similar enough that From should make a big departure from both. There can and should be only one Tower of Latria or Anor Londo.

    As long as they don't mess too much with the seamless combat I'll be happy. Miyazaki can do no wrong, as far as I'm concerned.

    I want a game that returns the atmosphere of Demon Souls, without removing the imrprovements of dark souls.

    Is it too much to ask for there to not be a sequel?

    I've never played Demons Souls, but from all gameplays i've seen, i'd say i probably would prefer some of the atmospheres in most areas in DS over Dks atmosphere. Other than the atmosphere i think i'd still like Dks. Don't let it fool you though, the atmosphere, to me atleast, is one of the biggest and most important things in games. But too be honest, if another installment to the series was made, i'd have to agree with callipygias. To me, having compared the games from what i've seen of DS, they seem to similar at lots of parts as well, so another installment being totally different in lots of ways would be really cool(as long as it still had that souls feel to it).

    Demon's souls atmosphere had me on edge the entire game...I prefer that

    Dark Souls just is just kind've bland on the atmosphere part. Although Anor Londo is pretty cool

    I think the combat feels better in DkS, not that I've really played demon's all that much but I do like Demons' atmosphere a bit better in places, but in some places it felt a bit cartoony, like 4-1 fighting the vanguard in the courtyard reminded me of so many PS2 games.

    Meh. I just want more Artorias and Gwyn bossfights. I like bosses that don't give you any time to try and heal, and force the pressure on you. The Penetrator was like that, but you could cheese it with Biorr.

    Yeah^, thumbs up. I think they should also heal themselves, like that bastard Red Eye Knight in 1-1. Woulda been a nice throwback if you got Artorias down to half health and suddenly he munched a grass.

    No!, Remember Satsuki's red phantom. The katana guy in the entrance to Shrine of Storms. He is impossible to fight legitly because of his grass. I always have to poison him from behind.

    Also, lots of stuff in Demon's is in Dark. Once I was going to make a list on here, but it was way too long.

    I'd like a mixture of atmosphere from both Demon's and Dark Souls. I think both have great atmosphere's for both games.

    Combat of Dark Souls.

    More boss soul miracles or spells like Demon's Souls.

    Covenant System like Dark Souls but works somewhat better then what they are now and give maybe more to the game depending on the covenant you choose like maybe secret areas in the game. Right now covenants lack reward. But I do prefer covenants over Demon Souls world tendancies.

    I'd like to see a knight that's a mixture of the Red Eye Knights from Demon's Souls and Black Knights from Dark Souls, mostly in size. I'd also like to see FROMSOFT impliment what they talked about in one of their interviews which was to have the knights appear randomly throughout the place, as if on patrol so you never know when you'll encounter one. That would be really from.



    But really I also hope that they make an entirely new game kind of more then just a sequal to either game, and have that game take what is best from both games and throw in a flare for the new one.

    I want them to go back to the demons souls look. Lordran is less creepy and eerie than Boletaria

    patches must return, he is a standby for this series now. i'd just put him in a non skeleton area... and what little data there is on a sequel seems to be something in lordran unless my sources confused the dlc with a sequel...

    I really don't think they need to make another game, they have so many cool potential stories they could tell, involving the other nations, they could really just keep developing content for Dark Souls ad infinitum. I only ask that they make co op easier as well. big grin

    If it's not broke, don't fix it!

    And going with that I would say a DS/DkS hybrid would be in order. Whereby if FROM took the atmos from DS, the improvements from DkS, and simply added them to a new immersive storyline taking in both the lands of Boletaria and Lordran, I would be one happy larry! big grin

    one thing i hope they do is add more detail to the char creator. It is suprisingly easy to make someone really horriable looksing, and not so easy to make them look good. O and bigger chest for the females and boob giggle. Seriously ima spend 200 some odd hrs with this thing might as well like what i see right happy

    Also, no silly weird designs for the female covers.

    "Tattered hair covers" ? really? o_o I know this **** is medieval, but that isn't what they used.

    If you ask me the character creator is too detailed, they just need to make a bunch of good looking presets and let us choose. There is such a thing as too much freedom. (Even still, it's better than Demon's souls character creator)

    Honestly i don't see how there's any wrong in too much freedom, i myself love the character creation, but it feels like a lot of things are missing to me, but i still love it. If they were to make yet another sequel without the 'detailed' character creation, i don't know if i would be able to play, cause that ability to decide what my character looks like, the ability to make it more personal really strengthens the enjoyment i have from playing a game. But hey, that's just me. As for the presets, i do agree that you've got a point there, more presets wouldn't hurt, but it sure would give a bigger variety in appearances, not that it matters, most hide their faces behind helmets anyway.

    WE NEED MORE demon souls difficulty in PvE the wep selection in DkS a return of more. Balanced MP mechanics and of course. NO DWGR!!

    I can definitely compare blighttown to valley of defilement but neither takes the cake for my least favorite place. I hate The Duke's Archives.

    I do agree however that on the whole Demon's Souls could be more punishing.
