IGN - 4 Reasons I'm Worried About Dark Souls 2

"When I woke up on Saturday morning to the news that Dark Souls 2 was on the way I literally leaped out of bed with joy, but ever since I actually watched the trailer and read Edge magazine's teaser for their forthcoming Dark Souls 2 issue, there has been a fine mist of unease settling in my brain. Of course it's ridiculously early to be passing judgement on the game - I've not seen it, obviously, and it's faintly ridiculous to be worrying already. But I can't help it. I care too much."

Yeah, that CGI trailer was so worrisome.

And FROM has such a long history of radically changing core elements of their games.

Oh, wait: that's all ****ing wrong.

People need to chill out. The game series hasn't sold very much, and obviously FROM would like to continue the franchise (otherwise they wouldn't be making a sequel).

Why is accessibility bad? For all we know, that could mean a more refined combat system, a more refined online system, and a more refined game world.

Why is "it's like Skyrim" bad? Isn't Skyrim one of the most-loved games of the past few years? Combine the challenge, depth, enemy design, and combat of Dark Souls with the expansive world of Skyrim and I think you'd have a winner.

No to everything you stand for.

"Why is accessibility bad?"

Your joking right...

FF13, RE5, RE6, Dead Space 3, DmC...hell even Skyrim was accessible and it wasn't as good as Oblivion when it came to a challnege, instead of expanding on things they took them out.

Come on man...accessibility is bad and despite them doing this to this franchise to "save" it, there going to be the ones to kill it.

Just don't add the glitches and crashes of Skyrim.

dedicatedtogamers1293d ago (Edited 1293d ago )

Dark Souls was more accessible than Demon's Souls...and it ended up being a better game. Sorry, but if FROM Software can make this Dark Souls sequel better by making it more accessible, they should go for it.

What, are people honestly asking for WORSE controls, GLITCHIER enemies, LAGGIER online, and CHEAPER online combat? Because those are the main issues that plagued Dark Souls and Demon's Souls, and that is what "less accessible" would look like.

"Combine the challenge, depth, enemy design, and combat of Dark Souls with the expansive world of Skyrim"

I'd certainly buy that game. Skyrim's combat sucked big time, and so do scaling enemies.

People seem to think "accessible" means "easy" or "watered down", which it doesn't.

Who said you can't have a hard game that is accessible? Souls fans are so snobbish.

Xof

you did not read the article did you?

Veneno1292d ago

Well, it didn't help that Shibuya said DS2 would be more accessible without explaining why the established fans shouldn't be worried. I know they can't reveal everything right now, but for christ's sake, give us something.

josephayal1293d ago

I hope Dark Souls 2 isn't too much different in terms of difficulty

sway_z1293d ago (Edited 1293d ago )

Don't worry about Dark Souls sequel.....

Worry about your Kids/Wife/Husband/Family/Frien ds/Partner.... so much more important...no?

*Edit

ROFL ...That's why I'd hate to be stuck (Desert Island) somewhere with an obsessive gamer...quite possibly the most self serving, selfish people to walk Gods Green Earth!

Them and Iphone zealots lulz ;)

TemplarDante1293d ago

stop worrying, IGN.
Did you worry Dark Souls didnt have the Demons Souls name?
So long as they dont break the mechanics for the casual crowd, no worries.

Locksus1293d ago

Considering that the Souls series' popularity depends 99% on its difficulty, it's highly unlikely that they would make the game easier. By accessibility, it's not yet know whether he meant story or gameplay mechanics with that statement. My guess is on the latter.
And Demon's Souls and Dark Souls' director is supervising the game and I highly doubt he would just let them casualize his baby.

And it was actually the Edge's journalist who brought up The Elder Scrolls series. He hopes that the Souls series would become as popular as it someday.
