    Mic Support

    Post by mr_no_face on Sat Apr 13, 2013 6:03 pm

    Xbox players have a clear advantage when co-operating with their summoned friends because they can do a private chat and play the game. On PS3 i have to call my friend via cell phone just to effectively communicate. If Dark Souls 2 were to come to next gen consoles it couldn't be a problem because PS4 will have cross game chat too. so it's whatever. BUT since as of right now the word is that Dark Souls 2 is only on current gen consoles, I will reiterate about how I feel that the game should have some sort of mic support and I think that Killzone 2 is the best example. You can hear EVERYONE even those on the opposite team BUT only if they are close enough. Proximity communication like real life the closer you are the easier you can hear them the father the harder. What do you guys think about this

    Sounds like a great idea, the proximity hearing. I like Killzone 2 was well. silly

    if only From would do this it would appeal to the actual co-op players who have trouble with those kids that don't know what they are doing and need help AND for those players who want to troll and just be **** PLUS there will always be a mute option just open the settings and check whether you wish to allow player conversation [] invaders [] phantoms. problem solved

    It seems like an idea with no flaws to me. This needs to be added, so communication on PS3 isn't such tedium.

    ya i think mics would be perfect for dark souls 2. it's almost impossible to communicate with the host using gestures alone :suspect:

    Yes.
    Reasons; Much less tedium, more immersive gameplay, feeling of persence nearby (tension!), and easier communication.

    I've had enough voice chat in mmos. There's not enough going on, imo, to justify someone talking smack. I think it would also takeaway from the "souls experience".

    I dont think there's enough going on in Dark Souls to warrant voice chat.

    If I'm doing a playthrough with a buddy, I just call them or skype.

    Voice chat would ruin the souls experience for me.

    It's as easy as disabling the voice communication between invaders and summoned phantoms in settings

    voice chat can be turned off it would be so much easier to just put on your mic than call a friend and kill your internet with skype or drain phone battery

    If so, then I think that when two forest hunters invade, they should automatically be matched up with eachother

    Well thats true. I guess I should say it seems like an uneeded addition.

    I'd prolly have it turned off at all times.

    Ya you could turn it off. I've never noticed lag spikes while being on skype. I have a land line, so batteries arne't an issue, and I'd still have it turned off.

    Its not "soulish" imo.

    Ummm...the whole point of dark souls is that you are not supposed to be able to play through the entire game with a friend. I really liked the way that we were forced to communicate with strangers using only a few, sometimes worthless, gestures. The spirit of the game would be broken if players could fully communicate with one another. I really hope that From realizes how adding voice chat would ruin the atmosphere, which is supposed to make you feel hopeless.

    I am extremely opposed to the idea, and really think DS would lose some of its magic. TRULY hope it's the same as DS1.

    My vote is that it matters not- I have no headset, and no intention of getting one...

    I gotta admit though I don't see the point of a headset unless you're just chatting to your mate while playing a game.. I never thought they'd actually be of any actual tactical use to be honest.

    I like the soul's series the way it is but, if they were to implement voice chat, I think the only way it would work would be with co-op only and it would definitely (IMO) have to be like killzone with the proximity feature. It would be horrible (IMO) if everyone could hear each other, but if it was just the person your co-op'ing with, I could see that working.
    Or maybe you could pe-record an audio clip to go with your gestures (ha ha, yeah right lol )

    Stand up GaryBlevins, first post ive read that considers the essential core of waht DkS is about!

    When im reading a book or watching a film, I dont want my mate chatting to me breaking the immersion, just doesnt make sense. Youre supposed to be alone on this journey, fighting for survival and striving to piece it all together as you go, .

    chatting away on the Mic to me seems much the same as reading the wiki, just another way to break the DkS spell.

    The only solution could be that you have to complete the game once or twice to unlock the mic function, at least then if youre co-opping you could have a chin wag, but only after youve first wandered through the game on your jack jones.

    I honestly cannot comprehend how this is a bad idea x(!! If it's done like Killzone 2( the closer you are the better you can hear and the further away the less) then it would be flawless when paired with an option to turn it off and on.

    Edit* you can play the game with it turned off completely and there could be a * can you hear me * gesture and you can respond with a gesture. I just enjoy the option ya know? I don't see this being completely unreasonable or game breaking.
