    Shibuya's quote on upgrading Dark Souls 2

    Post by Oh_the_Humanity on Mon Jan 14, 2013 1:39 am

    Im getting more and more excited and less and less worried about whats going to happen with Dark Souls 2. Reading this today only enforces those feelings. Shibuya said:

    “The idea is to get Dark Souls and what made it great, and give it a major upgrade,” said Shibuya. “Rather than focusing on shading and lighting technologies, I believe that having a more realistic atmosphere while showing better details of the monsters and their expressions would definitely have a bigger impact.”

    This is great! I was worried about them upgrading the graphics to much, taking away from that dark dream-like quality that the graphics have at the moment.
    I absolutely love the lighting effects in DkS. The way your armor reflects differently in each area is amazing.
    Focusing on background detail and facial expressions on the enemies and Im sure the players as well is exactly what DkS2 needs.
    I think the background is one of the only things graphically that really suffered in DkS. If they put as much detail into the background, like trees, rocks, and the way the bottom of buildings match up with the ground DkS 2 will look amazing, which it sounds like its going to.

    Why putting more detail in a mountain when you can use more polygons in a demon ***? DARK SOUS LOGIC.

    Because there trying to make the atmoshere more realistic, and in order to do that you have to make things look better than the way it was done in DkS, which was pretty sloppy. Now that doesnt make it a bad game Im just quoting Shibuya here he said: "I believe that having a more realistic atmosphere while showing better details of the monsters and their expressions would definitely have a bigger impact"

    So as you can see its not an either or thing here, he wants to improve the atmosphere (mountains buildings trees) while showing better details on monsters.

    Thats why I think this quote is great, because there not going to focus on ridiculously good graphics. What it sounds like is there going to keep the graphics the way they are (with some improvement of course) but to make everything else as good as the characters and enemies are, then give enemies (and players Im sure) emotions and facial expressions.
    Thats what I got from it.
    Imagine if the background had as much detail as the player in DkS. The game would have the best graphics ever!

    Yes please, give some pixels to the background. Pretty please, from software.

    Oh yesh! That would be great! I can imagine myself getting murdered by some well detailed laughing demon, while also seeing the pained expression in my character with an epic view in the background....aahhh....Dark Souls 2....

    I too was heartened (? opposite of disheartened anyway) at that quote.

    Realizing what the expression on Ceaseless's face was about after picking up the orange charred ring? Poignant.

    yeah they said it will come out for 360 and ps3 so IF new consoles come out by Xmas I'm strongly hoping for another October release big grin I can see them flushing it out ready and full by then i mean it was only put into FULL production last August/ October ? whenever they released PC and then DLC for the game and so at most 3 months of sort of working on it OR 2 months of hardcore working on it = 25% done I have high hopes they started all the concept art WHILE doing DlC work so thats a years work of storyboarding and art work done already not much left if they are already putting the game together ? right?
