FromSoftware’s considerable talent deserves to be applied to other styles of games too.
They did do Déraciné.
They should go make another Armored core I know they said they’re working on one
GamingBolt. You're asking the experts of a much loved, highly reviewed and good-selling genre to give it up and do something different. Perhaps the studio will grow their teams, but if you don't enjoy their games then maybe just don't buy them as there is a huge player base who loves them! It's like somebody complaining that the EA Vancouver keep making FIFA football games and wanting them to stop so they can go make an RPG.
A next gen Armored Core should be be up next.
I Wanna Create my Own Mech Again, i miss those games
From soft should take on games like DMC and Bayonetta, show em who's boss...
Nope. I want a BB2 first and then a Dark Souls 4.
I think Sekiro is already pretty different from the SoulsBorne games. Sure, there are some common elements, but also many differences.
It's the same game at it's core. A fps battle Royale would be different
Agreed, I went into Sekiro with a Dark Souls mindset and I was getting rekt.
@harmny In terms of gameplay they are COMPLETELY different.
Armored Core + Ace Combat crossover
It's time for Gamingbolt to do something different and write an interesting non-clickbait article!! From Software is not taking notes from you, luckily.
It's time for...... FROM SOFTWARE WARRIORS. lol
A FromSoft FPS? Or a FromSoft RTS? What about a FromSoft football game? Or wait, a FromSoft racing game? You see, the more you think about it, the more it seems like a naff idea. They need to major on what they do best, but on doing it bigger and better.
I don't know, talented developers can sometime be stuck doing the same thing over and over just because it's selling well. For example, wouldn't it have been a waste of talent had Guerrilla just kept on making Killzone but bigger and better? we would never have gotten Horizon Zero Dawn . I think From Software are more than capable of making an amazing game that is very different from their usual Souls games style.
Strange how CoD devs do the same exact thing with slight alterations that aren't hard to code. But, FromSoftware fully exploring the ins and outs of their gaming style with more variation and innovation apparently brings this issue up
Think about what you just said. FromSoft Football game.... *slide tackle* YOU DIED
I haven't logged in on this site in idk how long......I did just to tell you that your comment is gold asf😂
To be fair, From have a long history well before the Souls-like genre came around. It's not like Souls-like games are the only thing they can do or are known for. Even within the RPG genre there are many things they could do that aren't Souls-likes. Ultimately, I think they should do what they actually want to do. But I'm definitely interested in seeing something else from them.
Or an RPG, just totally different. Like what CDPR is doing with Cyberpunk from Witcher, but hopefully stays in 3rd person LOL.
Obviously from software would be best suited for a Facebook style social game involving the raising of demonic farm animals.
Exactly. Did Gamingbolt ask this of 343 Studios for example.
Bigger and better? One of the reason they succed is the games are not big and good enough. Bigger and better would require more budget, more resources. They should keep doing what they're doing. Unless people want to spend $100 instead of $60
Kinda like Guerilla Games making the RPG of the Year when all they were known for were FPS? ..
Why??? I don't care for Souls-like games, but millions of others do. They've created their own genre, the games sell well and there's still demand. Why 'fix' what ain't broken?
They don't have to never ever make a Souls game again, but there is nothing wrong with trying something new. Who knows, Souls fans might find yet another series they love?
but sekiro is far from a souls game people just think it is after seeing a tiny bit of footage.
millions really, how many Controllers get broken in Rage Quits from unforgiving games
Maybe if they "git gud" those people would not have to rage quit. 😊 After all, think of those poor broken controllers.
"Why fix what ain't broken?" Because not doing so leads to stagnation, and stagnation eventually leads to a marginal decrease in quality. It's why games like Call of Duty are churned out every year -- sure they make money and a lot of people still play them but they are entirely devoid of risk and creativity. These type of games don't have to disappear entirely, but there should be room for other types of games from them. Heck, even Miyazaki hinself thinks so and wants to flex his creatively muscles and develop a story-driven game, which would be a huge departure from his previous projects.
Well, they could make a "souls like" RPG that has more randomness in their enemy type, their placements and "drops". Basically in all the Souls/Borne games when you die or refresh yourself at a bonfire or lantern the same enemy with minor exceptions will appear in pretty much the same place. Of course, the exception may be the drops from a defeated enemy which are "sort-of" randomized. The problem with making a story-driven RPG is the fact that once you as the player compleat it unless it is an exceptional game with some randomized events then it has very little replay value. Now contrast to say Dark Souls or even Bloodborne which have a light-on story but can be extremely challenging giving them high replayability. These games also have branching pathways such if you don't follow a particular path you won't see it. or a particularly important item may be got in different places depending on how you unfold events. A Dark Souls 3 example is the Siegward of Catarina and Anri of Astora stories. A Bloodborne example is the different places (I am aware of three) where you can get the "Tonsil stone" which will give you access to the Lecture Building 1st Floor. I actually got a female giving me the stone on one occasion.
All From Software games are broken on console, since they all have terrible pacing and frame rate issues.
Did you ever play their games prior to Souls? They were pretty varied in games and they were awesome. No reason they can't continue making SOuls like but I'd love it at the same time if they made Armoed Core,Ninja Blade,Otogi,Kings Feild,Frame Gride, Spriggan Lunar Universe,Shadow Tower,Eternal Ring aqnd even platformers like Cookies & Cream. They made so much stuff. They are too talented to be limited to one genre really.
Im pretty sure they're teasing an open world like like rockstar
They're not. He just responded to an interview question saying he'd be interested in making one some day.
Aah i see. Makes sense. They have few games and a sequel in development
They're not actually making it. That's just something they'd like to do some day. Which I would love to see. A sandbox open world from FromSoftware could be incredible.
How about Fromsoft continues to create what they want.
I mean they are. As mentioned they are revisiting Armored Core and I'm sure they have something else like a new IP in the works. But that's beside the point. Their games sell well. Sekiro sold 2mil in 10days. Why fix something that ain't broke?
Because From Software is hot in the news right now and these trash sites need their clicks.
They want to double dip. Say this now, then if they make something new, they get the chance to say how they should have done what they're known for.
I thought it was interview article. Why would we care about Gamingbolt's suggestion? Play games from other developers, Gamingbolt.
sekiro is different its nothing like the souls games cept its in third person, puts gameplay first, isnt easy and high quality.
more focused story telling too, it's definitely not a souls game.
It is very much a souls game in spirit, just without the RPG elements and a stamina bar, but those never solely defined Souls anyway. Every other series staple (Bonfire-like checkpoints, Healing item that can be replenished after you rest at a checkpoint, NPCs having their own questlines, a focus on environmental storytelling, bar that fills up and inflicts you with a status ailment, doors that can't be opened from one side, illusory walls, difficult but rewarding bosses) are present, and those have been in every game since Demon's Souls.
i'd like to see a mascotte platform game made by them
I think it's time to let FromSoft do whatever the hell they want and stop being so entitled.
Mech Mech Mech !! Because it’s FS style
Armored Core is a FS game and if they do something besides Souls I want Armored Core or a RPG . Downvote all you want but Mech games are a big part of FromSoft
They've already said they're making an Armored Core game.
That’s what I’m waiting for . Collectors for me . I didn’t see confirmation just hints , maybe I missed it
How about they do what they want to do.
i'd suggest you take a look at moss and/or soul sacrifice and mix that up with the good parts of the souls series and bloodborne and i think you might have something kinda different that i would buy as well. just don't take anything from sekiro please because that one was too different in the wrong direction.
Sales says otherwise...
Funny that this article came out right when there's a rumor of Miyazaki wanting to try an open world, story driven game in the vein of GTA. This article wouldn't have anything to do with that rumor, would it?
And you are? Fromsoft has had hit after hit since demons souls. They can do what they please.
They should do something different sure, but not for all the whiney "journalists" who are bad at games.
ive been begging for another Enchanted Arms rpg that game was so amazing and old school loved the music and charachters
From should keep doing what they are doing and make games according to their vision.
So tou are saying that sekiro is like dark Souls or bloodborne? Lol there are a lot of games out there if u want something different... Don't buy a coca cola expecting to get something else.
As long as they give me Bloodborne 2, they can make whatever they want.
They're making money with SoulsBorne type games so...why?
Whats with all the articles lately telling fromsoft what they should do. Give it a rest fgs they're fine as they are.
100% agree with article. Return to Armored core or Tenchu
“Return to Armored core or Tenchu” Considering the fact that Sekiro’s development began as a sequel to Tenchu, that would make 50 percent of your request complete. The remaining half of your request (Armored Core) is already in the process of being developed by FromSoftware.... And this article is dumb.. Let FromSoftware create, you know, whatever they want to make.. and not what a journalist, who more than likely heard the comment (maybe even read a misleading N4G headline) about Miyazaki saying he would want to maybe someday make an open world RPG, which was then misconstrued into a rumor of an open world RPG game created by FromSoftware, in an effort to “get ahead of the game” with an article about “blah blah blah”, so that said “journalist” (who didn’t even read/listen to what was actually said) can come out and say “See?!? I had the SAME idea, and they did it. I’m a good journo. Derp.”
Honestly I think they should stick with what they're really good and well known for. They have made new IPs, so it's not like they are repeating a game series over and over. Me personally, I hope they stick to the third-person action/adventure/RPG style with a set difficulty in mind. That's what made me love their games and I hope they don't stray away from that too much. If they were to try something very different, I think an horror/eerie atmospheric game that focuses on exploration with some type of combat system could be interesting if done right.
Sekiro was different.
Gamingbolt, it is time to do something different, like quality jornalism.
No dev should be forced to do something different. Especially at the behest of the gaming press. Being open to them doing something different because of their talent is one thing, saying they need to do something different as an absolute is quite another, and is just wrong
