Gaming Irresponsibly gives you his best in explaining why Dark Souls stands apart and above the rest of the great AAA titles this summer.
Learning curves in many ways define the attraction of users to the gameplay experience. Word.
"Why Dark Souls Will Overshadow Every Other 2011 Release Except for Skyrim" ***Fixed**** As much as I loved Demon Soul I dont think this game will over shadow Skyrim.
Buy both. They will be equally amazing but completely different experiences. This is like comparing a gaming PC to the DS. Both are good at what they do, and other than being a game, they shouldn't be compared. I think Deus Ex has more in common with Skyrim than Dark Souls will.
Skyrim's art style and gameplay(that I've seen) pales in comparison to what we've seen out of DARK SOULS. But I guess Skyrim will come out being in the larger game in scale of the world.
Where did I say I was only getting one? I will be buying both day 1 but just wanted to correct the headline.
im afraid that Dark Souls would be the game the gets over shadowed by other games :( its just not getting any hype
Dark Souls certainly won't go under the radar like demons souls did
it could, DS fans are the ones waiting for the game to come out
The fact that they made it harder might be another reason to add to why it may not be as popular as other games. It seems that more people have their attention to UC3 in comparison to this game. Just saying.
I loved DS and this game looks like more of what I loved from that game.
Yeah, Im impressed :) Looking forward to it.
The mass of enemies is horrifying
dark souls is not that accessible in terms of being a game that can overshadow everything in terms of "hype" don't get me wrong, this game "being inaccessible to casuals" is what makes it amazing! its meant to bring the best out of you and im sure it will be better than 99% of the games released in 2011. now in terms of quality will it overshadow everything in 2011? in terms of being up thee in "quality" like uncharted 3? an astounding hell yes! this game can get game of the year. i cant wait for this masterpiece.
I'm sure there will be stupid people that still attack the game for it's difficulty though.
"better than 99% of the games released in 2011" No. 75-80% maybe, but not 99%.
um.. whats dark souls no offence ive' never heard of it LOL
Try harder next time. ;)
How could you have not heard of Call of Duty: Dark Souls?
Gamers suffering with this game will be legendary even in hell LOL
This game comes out right in the middle of a shitstorm of games...even with all of the releases, most which I will purchase day one, this will be the first on my list to playthrough....go watch the trailers if you haven't yet
Is there an error with the title? Shouldn't it say "Why Dark Souls will be overshadowed by every other 2011 release"? Nah I kid, I'm sure it will be one of the most unique titles this year BUT it sucks that it wont sell as much as skyrim or call of duty
Dark Souls? Meh. I was interested in Demon's Souls but I couldn't care less about this game. I'll be too busy playing Twisted Metal & Rage.
Overshadow isn't the right term. It will be a unique game and probably one of the best RPG's this gen, but to think it will overshadow games like Skyrim, Uncharted 3, Gears of War 3, Battlefield 3, COD MW 3 etc is just ignorant.
I loved Demon Soul's, hell I had it and finished it before it came out in the States, but Demon Soul's never did feel like an RPG to me. From what I know of Dark Soul's I'm pretty sure it won't feel like an RPG. I look a Demon and Dark Souls as more of an action adventure game.
I'm game but i don't think it will over shadow any thing..it's going to be one hell of a ride
LOL @ all of this, "Mah GaMe Iz BEtTeR dAn uR gAmE" nonsense. I'll be enjoying them both.
It is awful silly to go on like that,to say that it will "overshadow" everything else. The sentence really makes no sense if you really think about it.
Good on you, but I don't buy games just to buy them. Purchase what I like and leave everything else on the shelf. A man without taste is a man without anything.
I think Arkham City will give Dark Souls some competition as far as multiplatform games go. I believe Arkham City will outsell it though Dark Souls will do very well.
The review is a silently-hyped one but I did enjoy getting a buzz from reading your review. Peace.
"Why Dark Souls Will Overshadow Every Other 2011 Release" - yeah, that's not very likely.
