    Need a Better Name than Dark Souls II

    Post by callipygias on Sat Dec 08, 2012 10:25 pm

    Alright, dammit. I'm from the '80s, and anyone else from the '80s might understand that whenever I here '2' after a name I automatically add 'Electric Boogaloo' in my mind, and that's completely unacceptable for a Souls game. So I'm hoping that's just a working title and they come up with something better. I can't think of any though.

    Any clever or cool ideas for a better name?

    I heard people complain about gameplay or online or controls or difficulty...etc
    but about the title name? i mean it won't affect anything of the AWESOME GAME that will be coming.
    Plus i'd rather it be like:
    Dark Souls 1
    Dark Souls 2
    Dark Souls 3
    Dark Souls 4...etc

    rather than:
    Dark souls this
    Dark souls that
    Dark souls here
    Dark souls there

    For new people they will get confused of which is the really first game and which is the second...etc

    Just my opinion.

    Send them a letter saying "End the trends; give a better title, not a number."

    Or sit around and complain... or sue the company. Either way you like to.

    "We shall sue this company, due to them repeating the sequel trends in the entertainment industry, with repeated titles with an added digit."

    Good luck. Make us proud

    No offense to people who like the idea, but the whole "devil,dead,dread" whatever whatever SOULS is lame. I agree with the original thought, dark souls 2 does sound...lame. but most these fan chosen words to put infront of the word SOULS. Sound even worse!

    Leave it as dark souls 2 and lets worry about mechanics and dedicated servers!

    But, for contributions sake. I would like to see demons soul's 2 released, and it be called, "demons soul's land of the giants, the broken archstone" even a VERY late DLC release for it would be awesome.

    Honestly I don't really see what's the big deal about the name. We all love Dark Souls, and to me it belongs on my list of favorite games of my life. I think we should listen to what passivefamiliar said and focus on other things.

    However just to keep this going: If this is a direct sequel on one of our endings I think it should be called either of these. If they use the Link the Fire ending: Dark Souls: Legacy of the Chosen Lord, and if it's the Dark Lord ending: Dark Souls: The Embers of Light. No one said it had to be *Blank* Souls.

    Honestly thought the next Souls game would be another D word, but I think they purposely called it Dark to imply that it is under the same lore. They specifically talk about the undead, & how they are without light, I think it has something to do with the flame. Plus the black feather the maiden gives the character could be a nod towards Velka. Though honestly DkS had references to DeS without it being under the same lore...

    Do agree they need some sort of subtitle though. I like the idea of it being The First(or Last) Flame, depending on if it's a prequel with Gwyn's rise, or a sequel.

    It was actually going to be called Dark Ring, but it meant *** or something it brit county... or what not.

    I think it was Dark Ring. It was Dark something for sure, not Souls originally.

    Guys, the Dark Souls 2 thing was just a scam. This is the next "Souls" game:

    Desolate Souls?

    dunno, maybe the 'DS' obsessive thing needs to be dropped, why not call it something different altogether, its still a souls game. . I kinda see DS like a great book, with its subtle nuances and slow revealing of itself, maybe something more literary. .

    The only name (or one of the only names) that would be appropriate based on the trailer is Dragon's Souls.

    But seeing as it's in the same universe as the first DkS, the title Dark Souls II is quite appropriate. The number in the title is no doubt irritating, but that wont affect the game itself.

    I actually like that it's called Dark Souls II. If they called it something like Dead Souls or Damned Souls, and kept calling every new game something like that, they would end up with very uncreative names that are made up just to fit the D- Souls theme.

    I think they've probably called it Dark Souls 2 so far as they'd be mad not to try and capitalise on the value the name has built for itself. There is a huge amount of weight to the name Dark Souls now so they might call it that to start with, then change it later on, just get everybody talking about it first. . .

    or errr. . . or maybe not :bas:

    The souls are the currency after all, so what about some social commentary like Soul Recession?
    Hmm.. this also spawns other ideas like a loan shark covenant..
