    And i neither said it would be good or bad, i said appealing to wider audiences has ruined series. imo its ruined companies too.

    Let's just pray to any, all, or whatever power, that they don't make the mistakes of previous companies when they went for a 'wider audience'. I'm sure most people on this forum can name at least one game and or company that was ruined and or destroyed because of the concept, lets just not get into that side. If you really want to make a mark and show From that you actually care and want them to not repeat history, send them an email or an actual letter about your concerns and they may very well listen if they get enough.

    Guys... problem for me was this paragraph:

    "The success of both Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, which have each sold over a million [units] per title worldwide, has made us shift our thinking internally to not just core gamers, but to globalise our products, that they can be successful on a worldwide scale."

    This worries me a lot. Specifically the statement of shifting thinking to globalise the product..

    It disappoints me because i think that next game even if they made it harder it would be more successful than dark souls as the series has come into the public eye more. I think a focus change is gonna take it in the wrong direction sadly :|

    "But what about the people who think we're just in it for the money?"
    "Throw a difficulty switch in there and market it as the same thing as before. They won't notice the difference."



    I like when developers try new things, but when you take away the thing people enjoyed the most about your game and change it, you're only going to upset people.

    That are still going to buy your game no matter how much they complain.

    But it's still too early. We'll need more news to judge properly. But I think we'll be fine. Hopefully.

    I would hope that they make good decisions, we'll have to see.

    To be fair, Armored core is still crazy hard and they're been at that series for a while. There are definitely better games out there but every armored core game i've played was worth the playthrough.

    Here is another article that doesn't really say anything new, the only thing worth noting was the tablet part, though I wouldn't put much stock in this article.

    Yeah that was the first thing I really noticed also. Not usually a good sign.

    If the same people are behind the next Souls game as were DkS, I'm not too worried about it. They are horrible, horrible people with phenomenal eyes for detail who use the art of understatement (re: lore) better than 99% of modern authors, and they want me to die over and over and over. I doubt that will change.

    From is why I don't get upset at any invader/host tactics at all anymore. They endorse sneaking backstabs and they created the Gravelord Covenant. Those are core "values" that probably won't change. I love and hate them for it.

    I just want item corpses to be unique... Top of my list for any changes to the next game (if there really is any truth to an already planned sequel).
