Dark Souls 2's director Yui Tanimura has pledged that the upcoming sequel's difficulty will not be scaled down to appeal to a wider audience, despite the team's desire to make the game "more accessible".
right direction,sounds good
yap, any difficulty settings will kill the franchise
I wish dark souls had the ability to start a new character in ng+ difficulty after you have beaten the game.
I hope not, the healing stones have me a little concerned
The healing stones are just like Divine Blessings from the first dark souls, Rare items that heal you full, but you have no way of refilling them. The standard way of refilling health will be Estus Flasks. The reason he had so many Drop Stones of Healing was so the demoer could get through the demo easier. Similarly when the first Dark Souls was shown off the character had about 50 divine blessings.
i'm more concerned with being able to heal on the fly. i think it takes away from the fear of getting your *** handed to you if you can just spam it while you roll, etc...
good to know :-)
I just hope they can make hard bosses without making them cheap (I'm looking at you, Four Kings...) this time!
