GabeN shield should win.

I'd prefer a great looking shield that would match the ambiance, not a practical joke you'll see forever, and laugh at once.

Looks like the dev team only wanted simplistic shields
yeahokchief  +   641d ago
i wouldnt say they wanted simplistic shields. i'd say they wanted shields that they could make fit within their lore. if you are a demon's souls/dark souls fan you'll recognize that all of the items in the game have this secret lore behind them that relates to the story and the world. the items are the only way to learn the backstory of the game.

i think they just want shields that you can distinguish in game while you're using them specifically for pvp as well. like if i see a shield from a long ways away, i should be able to tell what it is.

i think they just didnt want to spend time redesigning shields lol. maybe they're really busy with designing other stuff and wanted to offload some work for free. lol. pretty smart move.

I really liked that first face shield when I saw it out of the bunch long ago.

I have to say though I really like the Bloody Hands one and the Bedpost notches one. Course the SunBro one warms my heart as well.

I can't wait for this game ... so I'm trying to ignore the news about it, lol. Talk about difficult.
GentlemenRUs  +   641d ago
Some of those look quite bland...

Ah well :)
yeahokchief  +   641d ago
i like the one with the bloody hands but wish it didnt have a giant hand on it. that makes it look a bit lame. but i like the idea of the bloody hands.
These developers are one trick ponies. They make Demon's Souls and it was good but then they go and try to recreate it with Dark Souls and it ends up being mediocre. Then they make a sequel for it (which will be just as mediocre as Dark Souls).

dark souls is not mediocre, it's definitely much better than demon's souls which was inconsistent and overly difficult to the point of not being fun at all except for a very niche amount of gamers, compared to dark souls which is difficult but also fun and not repetitive
Khronikos  +   641d ago
Please. Dark Souls is better than Demon's in almost every way. Play it on PC at 60FPS and 1080p with supersampling and mods. You could never say that without looking like an idiot. Sure, on consoles it ran terribly and looked pretty bad. But the game is simply stunning on PC.
yeahokchief  +   641d ago
you're a one trick pony buttercup.

dark souls was amazing. ive spent more time on dark souls than any other game on my ps3.
DestinyHeroDoomlord  +   638d ago
Your trolling is mediocre. ..
ExposingLames  +   641d ago
i don't like any of those shields. they need some more coollooking ones.
Firan  +   641d ago
Praise the Sun! I'll be using that Solaire shield, thank you very much.
feraldrgn  +   641d ago
The lion one looks pretty good, detail wise.
Though I think the Praise the sun shield could win because of the DS community who love solaire.

The kill count and the lion are the best ones.
Nevers  +   640d ago
I love the idea behind the bedpost notch one, lol.
Jiggy7d  +   641d ago
Please tell me that Dark Souls 2 is coming to ps4 eventually.......
yeahokchief  +   641d ago
yeah i hope they rlease it for both ps3 and ps4 so we can get some better fps otherwise i'm gonna just buy it for ps3.
VsAssassin  +   641d ago
Shame the tree shield didn't make it. I guess they opted for simpler to render shields than the much more grander ones.

I still like these 9 though. I personally like the Rose Shield and the Tally Shield.
