    Not to beat a dead horse...

    Post by EeAyEss on Thu Feb 21, 2013 4:38 pm

    DISCLAIMER: This is my first time in this section of the forum, so I don't know if this has been discussed before. I also didn't go search this section because I want to be a "virgin" to DkSII.

    But I have an idea about an "easy" mode: How would PvP work? Would it be restricted to mode to mode? It could essentially turn into another bottomless box. Everything is easier, so you can grab PvP stuff with less of a hassle, then go PvP, grief, co-op, whatever. Thoughts?

    Wasn't easy mode confirmed as not going into the game?

    I'd imagine that stuff you get in easy mode couldn't be used in normal mode, that would only be fair, or perhaps some loot is only accessible in normal mode runs, like achievements that require all the time hard mode and such in games.

    As far as I know, From has said nothing regarding modes whatsoever. Miyazaki did say that he trusted Shibuya to maintain the 'soul' of the Souls games, including its difficulty.

    Honestly, if it kept the twinks and people just looking to pubstomp with lategame gear in early areas out of normal game modes, I'd kind of be down for the idea of locking it by difficulty. Let them have their fun trolling people who aren't me silly

    thats what Ive always thought. as long as they lock the game in your chosen difficulty so you cant change it ever for that charchter. that imo would be awesome.

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/09/07/dark-souls-easy-mode-comments-were-mistranslated

    Hidetaka Miyazaki said he was going to add an easy mode, but then Namco Bandai said it was mistranslated.

    Some people think they are calling it a mistranslation to avoid the bad PR, but they are definetly not going to add an easy mode.

    I think in true souls fashion everyone would be thrown in the lions den together. I'd imagine cross mode pvp, coop, messages, everything being linked.

    To be honest though, I'd imagine they'd do the same even simply to cut back server costs.

    There is no way that they would make an 'easy mode'. People would argue that they might just so they can 'sell out' and get more noobs buying the game but the thing is they'd lose a lot of dedicated fans at the same time. I probably won't play DS2 if there is an easy mode because quite honestly i'm a bit of an elitist like that but hey so are a lot of other people. I love that I can smash dark souls while most of my RL friends are too scared to even play it or can't even beat the tutorial boss.
