    Your Greatest Fear

    Post by SublimeSinner on Sun Dec 09, 2012 10:53 pm

    Mine is that this game becoming watered down like the elder scroll series by far. They are posed in such a manner they could reach a very large audience and stock holders are their gods. While 2/2 they've been steady as she goes for the most part so that gives some relief.

    My second is because that Dark Souls felt like the polished version of Demons Souls graphically and game play wise. That alone bothered me for originality concerns.

    My last fear was repeating its shortness and lack of more optional areas. Repeating the same game after the NG+ curve got tedious. It stole from how epic it used to feel for most bosses. Another short play through version would definately shorten interest quickly given the memories of the grind for PVP classes in Dark Souls. Would it kill them to make a maze level where a dark wraith spawns above to start and can open and close pathways as well?

    My only fear for Dark Souls 2 is something happening to prevent me from playing it...

    1. they change the multiplayer, if they wreck this the game will just suck
    2. no patches, hes like the "link" between games, he really probed that dark and demons souls had something in common, even if they never told us
    3. the complete obliteration of what i like to call "starter rings", these allow the new players to at least annoy a more experienced player.

    My greatest fear with the game itself is that lacks it the challenge Dark Souls, and Demon Souls had by "dumbing" it down to grab a wider gamer and taking away the aspect that we piece together the lore by just handing to us.

    As a series it would become like Final Fantasy where each number game would have no relation to the last, or would become bland by not changing much like the Elder Scrolls is starting to (my view that is).

    Last in marketing the game: We Have To Pay More To Be Online! This here is where I drawn the line on jack*** moves a company can do.

    biggest fear is definitely their use of the words 'a new hero'. I would be absolutely disappointed if, instead of creating our own hero, we played as a predetermined character.
    To me it almost sounds as if that is what they intend to do with the next title. The thing I probably love most about demons and dark souls was being able to create totally unique characters. It is what I loved most about PVP, not just testing my own builds, but seeing what the community created.

    By "a new hero," I think they just mean a new take on "The Chosen Undead." Rather than an undead's journey to link the fire and whatnot, it's a new journey and new hero.

    It would suck if they took away the main idea of an RPG, though.

    If we lose the main idea of an RPG then the game is fading for me, however I don't think the developers are going to do that, you would lose a lot of fans by doing that.

    I kind like the idea of new character though, it adds a new kind of mystery to me. It's a new setting with a new journey, and From can't use our characters without choosing one ending as canon. But I'm putting my luck that it's a prequel.

    Any other ideas?

    My main fear is that people are taking that pile of sh** magazine Edge seriously.
    They've taken some developer quotes out of context and dumped them in their article on Dark Souls II to try and convince anyone who cares that it will be like Skyrim and have easy mode.
    Why?
    -They're terrible journalists
    -Gaming journalists are usually terrible anyway.
    -More site views and ad revenue.
    -They've been on about easy mode for several months.
    -They don't like hard games.
    -They gave Rockband 3 10/10.

    Well I guess, but most of their revenue comes from their site I'd imagine. It's on sale here in the UK still, so I guess someone must buy that toilet paper.
    For any Edge fans out there I'm sorry.












    I'm not actually, Edge fans don't exist.

    My greatest fear is that people will panic over something that only has a handful of details released and a CGI teaser. and furiously post at how it will destroy/change the series. Personally I'm Happy with almost any change they happen to make, that doesnt mean I'll continue to buy or play more of their games if I loose interest in them. but as awesome of a series that the souls games are all good things will one day end.

    Edge aren't rustling anything (ewww), people on countless threads are by listening to their garbage. (why don't people look up sources?)

    I've finished my last assignment for this semester and have a free day tomorrow, I have all the time to sleep!

    I avoid Gamespot/Ign etc , although I do like Kevin Van Ord. He does do good in-depth reviews for RPG's even though you always get the feeling with the bigger titles he has a score already set by the site and he has to write around it. I kinda wish he moved to Giant Bomb.
    And Mass Effect 3. Oh boy that Ign chief editor, that was just beyond the veil in terms of clenching at straws to defend a game.

    That's a lot of Jimmies.

    I wouldn't think they would make an easy mode I mean it's Dark Souls it's meant to be hard.

    Also does anyone know if this is in the same lore universe as the last Dark Souls? I've just seen the trailer because I thought the sequel was just talk and it looks like it takes place in a different lore universe.

    Anyways all I want is for From Soft to not make the next one too easy for the mainstream to get into. I think easy mode will ruin the game, because what will happen to NG+? NG+ is the best part of Dark and Demon Souls.
