MP1st - A new trailer for Dark Souls 2 was released durign the E3 Microsoft press conference, showing off some brand-new gameplay
I've gotta go rub one out now....
looks amazing. cant wait to invade!
It seems faster paced, with a lot more going on at once.
lord knows that was my main gripe about the combat, so glad it looks like you can take on more than one enemy at once more efficiently. since when did efficient mechanics become "arcadey"? I'm glad they recognized that improvements move franchises forward and that relying on dated mechanics with updated graphics is NOT an advancement and NOT the way to go.
I don't know, was it me or did this look a bit more... arcadey? Yes, it'll still be hard but parts of the video made it look like an arcade-style game. I hope I'm wrong. I'm currently trying to platinum the original on my PS3 - I only need 6 more trophies; two of which are weapon trophies. EDIT: Faster paced, as said above, that's it - arcadey.
They probably just made it like that to show more enemies and action for the excitement of the E3 trailer, In the 11 minutes gameplay trailer, it looked like very traditional and standard Demon's Souls/ Dark Souls style of play. I wouldn't worry about Dark Souls II going "arcade style".
It looked faster paced because it was mostly quickly changing between clips of actions, anyone who doesn't think Dark Souls was fast paced in combat (generally speaking) really hasn't played it
Or some one could have just played it a different style than you, (AKA more blocking, instead of rolling and dodging). Condescension is really unnecessary.
There was nothing condescending about what I said, I was pointing out switching between a bunch of action clips is not condusive to the entire game being that pace, I also never said you couldn't use a slower pace and use a shield, what I did say, was Dark Souls IS as fast paced as that video, at least in places, and if you're fast rolling and running round like a lunatic. the only thing condesceding here is your reply, and frankly i'm shocked you got 7 up votes for it.
Well that's where you're wrong! I've played Dark Soul as well as Demon Souls, and plan on getting this too.
Will be amazing. Please come to PS4.
So did they end up going with "Go Beyond Death" as the tagline? I feel like a different tagline had more votes... can anyone confirm?
More Dark Souls And Less Dragon Dogma. Both Are Good. Just Keep It Separate.
Wow! Looks so much more fluid! Or is it the hype talking? Oh well, I'm impressed!
I sure hope so! that's EXCATLY what this combat needed!
the colors were really bland ...but great game play
looks way better than Ryse!
