The real danger in Dark Souls 2 is not 'accessibility'

Joystiq - It was only four years ago that From Software's "Souls" series couldn't even find a publisher in the US. It was roundly dismissed by Sony Computer Entertainment America for being too difficult, seemingly dooming it to the status of import gem and not much more. Then Atlus got it at a pittance, saw it sell dozens of times more units than they could have ever expected, and the hounds descended upon what was suddenly a profitable property. (Dark Souls 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It will suck, different director, different direction.
all Dark souls needs to be is the same + new content.

I hope to god you are wrong about it sucking, but...facts are facts.

Prepare for the chance that Dark souls 2 may become an easier game. It may not suck, but there is actually a good chance they will dumb it down, lets just hope they won't.

New Director and Direction is confirmed, I just hope it doesn't mean what people are assuming it means. Accessibility does not mean easier, however, developers are known to try and tone down something fans won't like

I doubt it. Though there may be a new director, the game has officially become known has a truly difficult game, to the extent that Dark Souls was marketing with the "Prepare to Die" theme and it still sold considerably well. This whole process has made "Difficult" the game's staple. I really don't think the new director would risk downplaying what made the series popular.

I don't think DS2 will be anymore difficult nor easier than it's previous incarnations.

They say that you shouldn't fix what isn't broken.

that definitely applies to this game.

I remember a bunch of "Dark Souls will suck" articles when it first got announced too. "Zomg, dis gayme will b eaysier becoz 360 playas will b playin it DERP DERP"!

The game will be fine. I have full faith in it.

Well, granted it also wasn't quite as hard as Demon's Souls, at least IMO. Regardless, I enjoyed Dark much more.

oooh.

I think all of us 'hardcore' Souls fans fear what this article speaks of. At the moment there is nothing we can do but wait, there will be decisions made we hate and ones we love. In the end we will more than likely get used to the changes like we did with Demon Souls to Dark Souls.
