"Fixed glitch where Wheel Skeletons couldn't equip their Ring Of Fog and use Tranquil Walk Of Peace."

Just imagine... Jesus christ.

You heard it here first. /s

@BiggCMan: Someone should make a mod for the PC version that replaces most of the enemies with wheel skeletons. That would be awesome and infuriating at the same time.

Hoping for a Sega Saturn port.....people must not forget what happens to them when they're not playing their Saturn......
jon1234  +   843d ago
lets just hope they dont f--- up the gameplay up and make it more accessible for people...
_QQ_  +   843d ago
The originals aren't that hard as it is so i don't think that would happen.
darkziosj  +   843d ago
watchout we have a dark souls expert here.
xabmol  +   843d ago
Pffft....
I beat the entire game as a soul lvl 1.

True story,
The End.
bluetoto  +   843d ago
I know right? Heaven help us if they want to continue to grow their fanbase.
jon1234  +   843d ago
haha, its all fun and games until the game starts going down the dead space and sim city route, then we'll be sorry :(

but seriously they already have a fan base, they kind of dissapointed me with dark souls, i hope they can redeem them selves with part 2 and return to their demon souls glory days
JP1369  +   843d ago

Good to know I'm not the only one that preferred Demon's Souls.
bluetoto  +   843d ago
jon that fanbase is smaller than you think bud. If a company isn't growing it is dying, plain and simple. They are not interested in just copying and pasting with a new coat of paint and no gamer should want their fav series to become stagnate and stale like cod. Deadspace3 was the brainchild of a greedy exec looking for ways to tie in an online pass, not the devs trying to improve the gameplay.

Check the numbers of sales for demons souls and dark souls and you'll see they are losing fans, not gaining. Why in the world do you think they changed directors? Because the series is doing so well?

It sure isn't because the series was growing the way they think it should and this great series should be available to more than a few who are blinded by their own reasons. my opinion of course, except for the sales, those are facts, look em up.

and to me demon's souls was a hell of a lot easier than dark souls with how you could manipulate the world tendencies and banish unwanted black phantoms from your game. love em both though.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Seriously just stop. If the Souls series fanbase were as small as you're attempting to claim, the following wouldn't be possible.

A)Demon's Souls wouldn't even exist outside of Japan. Sony were always very cautious about Demon's Souls because they thought there was no chance in hell it would sell well, but thankfully Atlus took the chance that it would. Thanks to fans of Demon's Souls, that game became Atlus' most successful endeavour in N.A. and they decided to leave its servers online until demand waned, which it hasn't even in spite of Dark Souls' presence.

B)Demon's Souls success is why Dark Souls exists at all.

C)The incredible demand for Dark Souls on PC lead to FromSoftware developing a PC port of the game. Yeah, such a small fanbase it has.

D)More demand for more Dark Souls content lead to the Knight Artorias DLC.

And finally, Dark Souls 2 exists because of how beloved the Souls series is and will be releasing on all platforms (except maybe Wii U I think). So to say that the fanbase is smaller than anyone thinks isn't backed up by those facts.
JP1369  +   843d ago
How are they losing fans? In March of last year, it was revealed that Dark Souls had sold 1.6 million worldwide, while Demon's Souls had managed just over a million. That's a significant increase when you consider that Dark Souls released just 6 months prior in Japan and 5 months in the rest of the world. Contrast that with Demon's Souls, which was release in February 2009 in Japan and October of the same year in North America.
I guess the point I'm trying to make, is that you don't know what the hell you're talking about.
DragonKnight  +   843d ago
@JP: bluetoto is using vgchartz numbers. In short he has no facts, only the skewed numbers of vgchartz. He ignores everything that shows that Dark Souls is a success and has a dedicated fanbase and is just trying to argue in favour of casualization. He likely sucks at playing the game and thus is wishing for an easier time.

Keep the hell away from my hobby. It's people like you that ruin gaming.

j-blaze  +   843d ago
dood just stop, many games were ruined because of this "broadening the fanbase" because devs/publishers have no idea how to do it right, instead of better marketing, improved visuals and gameplay or better story to gain more sales and fans they change the main theme or core element of the game and turn it into something generic and mainstream, i don't want this to happen to any of my favorite franchises!
DeadSpaced  +   843d ago
Praise the sun.
xabmol  +   843d ago
Who would disagree with this?!
I'm a loyal Darkwraith and I still agreed.

Bet it was people who never even played the game >.>

next gen version or current gen? either way i'm interested to see how the gameplay works.
Silkside  +   843d ago
Dark Souls is amazing, it has the perfect gameplay, atmosphere, graphics.....

it just need an engaging story and it would be the perfect game.

This would be the perfect way to make the game more accessible to everyone, don't change the gameplay, difficulty or atmosphere... just add a god dam story to why i'm killing all these hard MFing monsters.

End
DragonKnight  +   843d ago
There is a story, it just doesn't force it on you like games today. The game is supposed to be more about you than the story, but that doesn't mean the story isn't there.
VsAssassin  +   843d ago
The story is there, you just have to weave it by reading through items/equipment that you pick up and piecing together the short-but-sweet dialogue from NPCs.
xabmol  +   843d ago
Eh...
I'm a "Gameplay > Story" kind of gamer anyway. And DS has that which I desire; tight gameplay, multi button Combos, dodging, stamana controll, and crazy environments with big ass gnarly bosses to kill. <3
Irishguy95  +   843d ago
While DS games are my favorite games this gen, I would still prefer an 'in your face' story. There's nothing wrong with having a story like that. Souls series will only improve by adding it imo. Again...though, they are already my favorite games for everything you mention
xabmol  +   843d ago
True, but...
I'd rather have better net coding , frame-rate, combos, weapon diversity, cross class bonuses, ect, ect, than a better story.

Put the development hours where it counts; Gameplay!

I swear to Gwyn you'd better not mess this up Shibuya or you'll face the combined wrath of the Darkmoon Blades, the Gravelord Servants, and the Darkwraiths.

Demon Souls & Dark Souls are 2 of some of the best console games this generation.

Can't wait for Dark Souls 2.

Nice, loved Dark Souls and weirdly today I bought my first PSN Plus subscription and have been downloading Demon Souls all day. It's weird how that always happens, its like a 6th sense.

mediate-this  +   843d ago
@ jon1234 and you want less people to buy the game? More sales is good for this franchise, and accessibilty does not mean easy, to be frank the souls series is not as hard as it is unforgiving in my opinion.

I dont use magic because i still dont know how to, but im always leveled up high with str, endr etc.
in my opinon accessibilty does not necessarily mean easy.

1080p 60fps can't to pre order on steam!
Oh_Yeah  +   843d ago
Yyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeerrrrrhhhhh . Souls, Fallout, Elder Scrolls and Borderlands... If not for these franchises I probably wouldn't have really gotten back into gaming after the ps2 era. The introduction of western rpgs on consoles have been the best thing that happened to gaming this gen. I can only imagine what they're going to be like on next gen hardware.

I'm super excited. I just went back to Dark Souls after quitting for over a year. Now I'm on a mission to finally beat it.
