Dark Souls 2: "Number One Thing For Us Was Don't Sell Out"

Namco promise that Dark Souls 2 is just as hardcore as the first (Dark Souls 2, E3, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

And this my friend is how you make gamers happy.
MooseWI  +   690d ago
Agreed. I know they lost some members but it looks like they kept the platform going right.

IE: do what Sony are doing.
They already sold out by making Dark Souls to begin with.

So expanding your game to be playable by as many hardcore gamers as possible is selling out?

I have got news for you, hardcore gamers existed on Xbox 360 and PC also.

Demon's Souls is better anyway. They should've stuck to the formula and made DeS 2. DaS just lacked the charm of DeS; don't get me wrong, DaS is incredible, but I think DeS2 would've made for a better 2nd game.

@cam977

While I agree that demon souls is better than dark souls in a lot of ways, there will never be a demon souls 2. Demon souls is Sony owned but dark souls wasn't a sell out because it still was the original formula just put in an open world setting. I don't think they should have made a direct sequel though they should have made dead souls, damned souls...,something souls just to make it an on going series with different stories and worlds each time.

You talk about selling out and have the "new" Dante as an Avatar? Great Job.
FrostyZipper  +   690d ago
I'm fairly certain that's meant to be ironic.

I never really got around to playing DeS, but I loved DaS. Don't think I've played a game that actually makes you a better player by punishing you since God Hand. Terrific fun and extremely satisfying.

lol no just no. Dark Souls was so good. Just because they aren't exclusive to Sony doesn't mean they sold out.

Why did Namco have to steal these games away from Atlus? That was bad. Atlus should be making these games. They actually care about gamers.
JackVagina  +   690d ago
Huh?
Firan  +   690d ago
Atlus just published Demon's Souls in NA. They didn't make anything in it. They make great niche games though.
segamon  +   690d ago
good to know.

I hope they or Sony studios carry on the Demon's Souls franchise as well.

As long as they make it as fantastic, if not better than the originals of course.

Both Dark Souls & Demon's Souls were enjoyable, I like Demon's souls "stage" or "level" like gameplay & I also enjoyed Dark Souls world.

There's also the difference of World & Character Tendency features in Demon's Souls, which I enjoyed.
