Mine would be

"Let Accessibility Darken your Soul"
yeahokchief  +   1023d ago
The two in the lead are

1. Transcend Death

2. Sacrifice Everything

Both are cool with me. I'd go with Sacrifice Everything personally. but whatever it's just the tagline.

As long as they don't make it more casual. Make it more accessible so we don't need to use the wiki as much to understand everything SURE. Just don't go overboard dumbing it down because I want to die a lot. But then learn from those deaths and be awesome.

Transcend death.

I can't count the number of morons who managed to blunder through both prior games without ever coming to the realization that player death was an integral gameplay mechanic.

Sacrifice Everything would be awful, since it sounds more like a Soul Sacrifice thing.
Blacktric  +   1023d ago
Why not use both?

"Sacrifice everything, transcend death."

Sounds a lot cooler than just using one of them.

I don't like any of that that much tbh. But still looking forward to it, it's not the tag line that's make the game..

but i too do prefer Sacrifice evertyhing vs "Transcendent Death"

Or "Live Free or Die Hard" lol

"I can't count the number of morons who managed to blunder through both prior games without ever coming to the realization that player death was an integral gameplay mechanic" from 1993 to falsely extend playtime.

Sacrifice everything is the best in my opinion. Which isn't saying much...

Should be "Prepare to Die Harder" lol.

I'd much rather they just make it, Prepare to Die... Again.

All of these five choices sound stupid. "Into the Beyond." Really?

I know it's utterly cliche, but how about " Death is Just the Beginning".

Most of the time, it's taken like there's an afterlife, which is ironic because it's just death after death.

I know it's lame. I prefer "Prepare to Die".

"Transcend Death" is the only one that really makes sense in terms of what the game is about.

Why not just stick with the original tag line "prepare to die"? if it's to appeal to the casuals then just say "prepare to die... less" lol
jjb1981  +   1022d ago
Mine would be "die if you want live"
Pozzle  +   1023d ago
I don't really like any of them, tbh.
DragonKnight  +   1023d ago
That's because they all suck. Miyazaki got it right with "Prepare to Die." Logically it should be "Prepare to Die... Again." But it's more likely going to be "Prepare to get Casual."

So cynical. Guess you guys simply don't trust the Miyazaki.

Can't wait for this anyway.

Seriously, people simply won't listen to them. You know how they are making this game accessible to newbies? They are making a tutorial. That's it. They are going to tell people how one plays the game, upgrades ****, gets into convenants...and...that's it? After the tutorial Dark souls 2 will begin.

Miyazaki has nothing to do with Dark Souls 2. Nothing at all. They forced him out. Shibuya is in charge of this one and the things he's said are leading people to believe that Namco is pushing accessibility. You must not have paid attention.
theDECAY  +   1023d ago
I'm a pretty sure, although not directing, he is still involved in the production, and overseeing the finalized game.
Roccetarius  +   1023d ago
I don't think a lot of people know it, or wants to acknowledge it, but he does indeed not have anything to do with the game anymore.

The only thing he was involved with, was to get the team in place. After that he got kicked off to work on something else. That's what was revealed in the latest interview.

DragonKnight  +   1022d ago
@theDECAY: Nope. They gave him an honorary "supervisor" title (because that's how they do things in Japan) and moved him to something else. According to Namco, it was a joint Namco and FromSoft decision, but that's just a polite way of Namco saying "we want mo money, so we changin' things foo'." Miyazaki must not have liked the proposed changes and was removed from the project altogether.

They don't have games because they just launched the system. I guess ppl forgot when 360 first launched all u can play was kameo for the longest time and geometry wars. It took a good year or two to really pick up steam. And no there won't be games cuz ppl bash on the system and freaks out the devs. Don't forget Nintendo always has something up their sleeves.
Jakens  +   1022d ago
Maybe Nintendo can release a (TRUE) next gen console.

My Serbian instincts tell me Half Past Dead sounds just about right to me. You will come close to being dead so many times... or Dark Souls 2: Footsteps in the Dark (lame). Or Dark Souls 2: Today You Die.

I love the DS series and I don't want it to go away. However, if ever they're making this game more accessible, I really hope it's not in the same vein as EA has done with Dead Space 3. No microtransaction please. Imagine the tagline: "Prepare to die... all over again... but if you don't want to, buy stronger weapons and armors and use them for $0.99 a piece!"
squallcloud9  +   1023d ago
Death becomes you.
squallcloud9  +   1023d ago
If there's a tutorial then they should include an option to skip the hand-holding and reward veterans with special fan armor or something for completing that first challenge unaided.
Reverent  +   1022d ago
That's kind of how DS1 and DeS were. In DeS, if you beat the tutorial boss, you were taken to the Dragon God's lair where you would inevitably die anyways, but before so, you were given tons of good loot like crafting materials and such. In DS1, if you beat the Asylum Demon in the first attempt, you were given his ax/club thing which made a very powerful weapon throughout much of the beginning of the game.

Except you could'nt use that powerful weapon until you had the stats to wield it, which you don't have in the beginning of the game.
