Namco Bandai Games, the publisher behind “Dark Souls 2,” is asking fans to vote for the tagline for the upcoming Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 video game.
Mine would be "Let Accessibility Darken your Soul"
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.
Why not use both? "Sacrifice everything, transcend death." Sounds a lot cooler than just using one of them.
DARK SOULS II −Die Harder−
Dark souls: the death reaper
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 have yet to play the first one. I bought it but I haven't had the time to play it yet.
"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. Fixed it for you!
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?
Dark Souls 2: Death Eternal
yup Sacrifice Everything seems alright but we need a better tagline than this
Dark Souls 3: Aborted Fetus Dark Souls 3: Your Mom Died In A Car Accident Dark Souls 3: Dad Molested You At Age 3
@tresgrimm, there is funny, then there is immature... You sir, are immature.
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".
Dark Souls 3: Free Willy
Dark Souls 3: What would Jesus do?
You are already dead: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Dark Souls 2: No Channeler's Trident For You.
Dark Souls 2: Return of Pure Bladestone.
"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
Mine would be "die if you want live"
I don't really like any of them, tbh.
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."
Where's the "no tagline at all" option? :)
Dark Souls 2: "This won't hurt a bit...."
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.
I'm a pretty sure, although not directing, he is still involved in the production, and overseeing the finalized game.
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.
@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.
I feel like "Death Beckons Again" would work seeing as its Dark Souls 2
I like this one tbh^
Dark Souls 3: Now with easy mode Dark Souls 3: Pay $$ for extra health Dark Souls 3: Kid Tested Mother Approved Dark Souls 3: Not a Square Enix Title
Dark Souls 2: The Sequel to Dark Souls
Dark Souls 2: Dying to Live
"The Death of a Series"...I hope not, but we will see.
mine would be: Dark Souls 2: I didn't finish the first one!
Prepare to die again, for the first time, for the last time
Dark souls : we are less satanic
Life is Pain, Death is Dark. Dark Souls II.
That sounds like an aftershave advert script.
Dark souls: Have a Nice Death
This series will get easier and easier as it goes along to appeal more to the casuals, which greatly outnumber hardcore gamers. Dark Souls: "Rock hard Edition". Dark Souls II: "Semi Edition". Dark Souls III: "ED Edition". Dark Souls IV: "I'm A Lady Now Edition".
Dark Souls 2: "For Casuals"
Praise the death.
Everyone needs to go sign the dark souls 2 wii u petition, it needs to be on ever console. If you alrdy signed it make up another .
No. WiiU is a waste
How can any of you Wii u haters call yourself gamers lol true gamers will play regardless of console its on and graphics don't make great game, and ya I love Nintendo but I don't discriminate against other consoles, each bring things others don't.
@ac7ive. Your right. Its all about the games.... in witch the wii u does not have. and will not have in the near future
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.
Maybe Nintendo can release a (TRUE) next gen console.
if it does happen. imagine Mario in Dark Souls as a playable character. LOL
That's exactly why I don't want it to happen.
welcome to die
I KILL YOU !!!
Christ, do we have to use facebook for everything now lol?
Dark Souls 2: Dark Souls 2 OR Dark Souls 2: Afterbirth
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.
DARK SOULS 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO!!!
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!"
Death becomes you.
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.
