    As long as they don't bust a Bethesda and try and tell me that it's a whole new game engine, I'm cool.

    If they made a game without super blocky textures and laggy levels, it'd be perfect in my book.

    I think the graphical style of dark souls is good, but with some extra bit of love and care the game could become all the more gruesome, so realistic it's positively terrifying.

    If the graphics improve it could make the atmosphere of the game even better, which admittedly as is just looking around is a tad lifeless.. The graphics are quite nice, some views are good to see, but when you stop and look at it closer the immersion can get a little lost, the world doesn't really seem contingent or changing.

    It's not the case of learning the cell architecture, it depends if their new graphics engine will take advantage of it. Demon's Souls game engine is a heavily modified PS3 game engine which means that From Software might have the experience and the software tools to use the cell architecture to it's full potential. It all depends if they have incorporated them in the new graphics engine and are willing to use it.

    Something that i've always felt about graphics is that RPG games like Fable always do better in the older graphics like Fable: TLC. The older graphics in the game helped the atmosphere feel much better somehow, although i'm not entirely sure how i could possibly explain it. There are games like Halo 4, that i feel the graphics only do good, and no harm whatsoever. But a change of graphics for Dark Souls 2 makes me fear that it could possibly kill some of the atmosphere. That's the way i've always felt about graphics in games, especially the games with a darker theme.

    I mean. . . doesn't change how the game looks at all. . .

    Just look at screens of the modded PC edition.

    I think that the atmo couldn't be hurt be graphics. I mean look at the trailer, those (pre-rendered) graphics are gorgeous and it felt much darker to me than DkS itself.

    Whether or not you are for or against the boost in graphics for Dks2, it is an inevitable feature of all future games. As the years roll on, games will continue to look better as a matter of evolution, as game engines are designed to allow more robust graphics with simpler coding requirements.

    Personally, I am very much in favor of the stunningly beautiful graphical boost. For those of you discouraged by this, imagine that Demons Souls and Dark Souls alike had been published one or two years earlier. They would have inevitably have had less refined graphics than the current games we have now. Would you then say that you wished the developers wouldn't make the graphics any better in the next installment? Dark Souls' graphics are better than they could have been, but would you even have known if they weren't?

    I absolutely understand the nostalgia solicited by the gritty graphical schemes of the previous games in the series. I also understand the fear of losing that aspect of the game. However, I truly think that once gameplay footage of Dark Souls 2 is released, most gamer's, even the truly loyal ones of the series, might find the enhanced graphics a welcomed surprise, as ultimately, they will only serve as a way of immersing us even more within the painfully gorgeous Souls universe.

    They said they're not changing the stuff. They're "upgrading" what they've done before. So the graphics will be better. The same darkness and dull colors that make this game look so great? Supposed to be better as well.

    The pitch-blackness of the Tomb of Giants will be even blacker than before. They've actually found a way to make pixels absorb light; if you go in the ToG, the room your TV is in will actually get darker.

    i welcome the new graphics but i also think that dark souls color palatte is: too full ofdark colorsand not full nuf with brighter more pleasing colors.

    NOW i dont want everything bright and joyful id rather a city that is now destroyed to have remnant of the un-holy word... color. If it used to have color make it have some! areas like darkroot forest on the other hand need darker deeper colors with a bright horizon or something to have a relief?

    Also character models! they're technicaly a part of graphics!

    they need work some characters look ghastly and bland

    I dunno, just tossin out things to think about.

    I believe that is wrong, I think the new director stated he wanted to hand the person the lore on a silver platter. So that it is obvious and people don't complain about not understanding the lore.

    The pre-rendered graphics did the opposite for me, they reminded me of the templars from Dragon Age Origins, it didn't bring across a dark atmosphere for me at all... More possibly just a concept of secrecy (feather being handed over) possible importance and maybe just sort of oppression as a whole throughout the trailer. This doesn't come across as the souls series graphics. It looks like your stereotypical fantasy game, not a dark-fantasy game which the souls series is.

    Maybe reminds me of FF a bit... And I mean the newer ones, not the old ones.
