Both have potential, as long as it's directed by Miyazaki. At this point, I want a true Dark Souls sequel from Miyazaki. DSII in many respects was not that.

Since Bloodborne was a bigger offshoot of Demon's/Dark, I feel like its world has more potential to grow as an IP, but both games are distinct enough that we can expect to see something refreshing in both. #2.3.1

Dark Souls 3 was going to happen either way.

Miyazaki behind DS3 is interesting. Dude is really great, and I loved Dark Souls 1's open and connected level design, so I'm interested to see what he does next.

A Bloodborne successor will be dependent on Sony, but it's way too soon to announce a sequel/successor right now. Bloodborne will get an expansion, that much we know. #2.2

Pretty bold move to make it PC exclusive, but I am expecting them to really cater to the strengths of the genre on PC. So excited! #2.3

I wanted to expand on challenges and criticisms, but didn't want to make the blog too long. Cost is definitely a huge barrier, as well as finding the right game to really hone in on what is practical and useful for a teacher, so practicality can be an issue too.

These suggestions are definitely meant to be alternatives, and I wanted to show how video games can be introduced or viewed as educational.

I think games like Minecraft ar... #1.1

Game had lots of hype, looked damn good, had a great history with Demon's and Dark Souls, and scored top scores all around. Sony also did a solid job advertising it.

All the right ingredients for a really successful launch and sales.

I still remember buying Demon's Souls and how it had some good buzz, but limited attention from most of the media/gamers. Its great to see how far Miyazaki's vision has come. #2

Beautifully written. Its interesting that you think what you think in regards to Youtube personalities. I've noticed also that some personalities tend to be sponsored by publishers, which can come off as ironic since this defeats the novelty of gamers voicing interest over publishers/website media. #2

Wonderful :)

Yes, I wanted to cover gaming now with how it can be applied to learning. Especially since, like you said, we have new tools with Wonderbook, AR, and VR. The technology these things offer are very practical compared to what we used to have, and they can open up important social and practical skills related to developing children and aiding/inspiring a positive learning environment

Thanks! #3.1

I dont frequently experience maintenance time, though that's likely due to the hours I sign on.

What absolutely frustrates me though, is PSN messages take ages to send, receive, and refresh. It's a massive buggy experience that makes it incredibly frustrating to send a few back and forth messages.

I just want to at least Sony hear acknowledge this issue.

It's no secret that Sony isn't an OS company, but it becomes an annoyance... #1.1.3

Then it wouldn't be ADS. It would be zoom-in. However, I am inclined to think that if sprint is in the game, ADS would not be far off, considering that precision aiming would exist to help target sprinting players.

You can also see that when ADS'ing in the video, there is a slight, slow move to the right. If it was zoom-in or cosmetic, you would think the player would MOVE like it was zoom-in/cosmetic.

We've seen how Halo... #1.1.12

You really can't tell the difference between zoom and ADS? It's not the same thing. #3.2

This is absolutely not true. There is a difference between adding in new mechanics that serve Halo's style, and checking off a list of common tropes seen in many other games.

Most people would have no issue with a solid new entry that went back to basics and focused on good maps and good design. Fundamentally changing the game is a screwup, plain and simple. You don't NEED to add sprint and ADS. Those are not "new gameplay designs" and they dont help Halo.... #1.3.2

Dude, it's a huge issue. It's so annoying to me when people who dont know what Halo is about say "this is fine, change is good, it's time to evolve"

None of this is good. ADS and Sprint fundamentally change Halo. I am sure they will bring the loadouts and perks of Halo 4 too. These things ruin the game entirely. It serves to the "run sprint, die" ADHD crowd who can't stand getting familiar with something new.

You don't... #1.1.8

It's not actually a server overload, from my understanding.

It's an issue that with the programming of the game's code, so Evolution is now fixing and rewriting a lot of it, which can take a long time. #1.5.1
