Best news in a long time for me! But the trailer is sadly a generic let down for me because it feels like something epic from Skyrim/Dragon Age, I hope this won't be the mood the actual game is going for, I expected despair, hardships etc from the gameplay trailer.

Yeah. I'm a bit concerned as well due to the high-budget trailer. Though if the same dev team is behind it, it likely wont suffer from "mainstream syndrome".

I have to finish Dark Souls 1 as soon as possible now.nervmeister

I got it day one, but I have yet to finish it once. I just feel like the lack of second chances means if I screw up a plot line or cause an important NPC to die or go hollow or whatever, I can't go back from that, so I stress about it and put the game off (and also I want to see as much of it as I can the first time so I end up grinding a ton to raise my covenant levels and unlock stuff).

I'm getting there, and with DSII coming out I will definitely power through it and maybe even finish an NG+ run to get both endings.

Wow, can't wait. Got stuck on the DLC, lulz. Dark Souls isn't really a game you could just turn on and play. Have over 100 hours but too rusty :(

Horrible memories Blightown, Anor Londo (If there is one moment in the history of my gaming career where I thought I would chuck my controller out of my window, Anor Londo was it), and running around with tons of souls desperately trying to find a bonfire are flooding back to me. Yet, I'm so excited about a Dark Souls ll, I almost want to give it a second run through.BadNewsBen
The archers part? I went to like super sayain 3 rage during that omg.

and add some weapon variety that don't suck unless it's a katana or spear.. seriously I'm getting tired of the katana. themyth01
So far, the bandit's dagger has been my fave due to its critical hit potential combined with lightness.

Ah, the irony. Any other franchise doing 3 games so close together would be called milked, overused and stupid. Media darlings don't get that though.

I'm happy about it, it's nice to know niche games can make profits, breathe easy Suda 51!

I still haven't played Dark Souls so gotta get that sometime. Also weird they put 2 at the end of this instead of a different Souls name.

It's not as bad as COD or Assassin's Creed. If this releases next year it'll be 2 years since Dark Souls was released, and that was 2 years after Demons Souls. That seems like an appropriate time, seeing as it gives them a 3 year development cycle probably.

watched the trailer 6 times in a row lol holy f*ck! i haven't been excited for a game like that in a long ass time. Hopefully the money they made won't be wasted in *amazing looking cutsceens*, voice acting, epic looking quick time events (ala gowIII) but in a new engine that looks GOOD. Gameplay and voice acting is already perfect and needs zero improvements but engine looks bad. If a Souls game finally manages to look good and has same amazing gameplay it already has, this may be the best game released in the past 20 years, that's right, that good! So, i wish it to be bigger (bigger=more exploration=better) and look good visually, that is all.

Thank God. It's officially my second most anticipated game of 2013, right behind GTA V.

That's cool, I guess. I have DS but I just stopped paying. I might pick it up again, but I have no intentions of doing it in the near future.

PC day one, and servers. This sounds good.

I hope they don't go overboard with this though, that's recipe for disaster.

If you liked Mario on NES, you are gonna love this. And no, this is not sarcasm, Im being serious.

They are going to make a samey sequel this time aren't they : (jg4xchamp

That's a bad thing?

Who gives a sh*t!?

#186 Posted by Master_ShakeXXX (13361 posts) -

I really need to play Demon's Souls so I can actually play Dark Soulsfunsohng

Their stories are not related, at all. You don't need to play Demon's to enjoy Dark Souls. Definitely still play both though, if you can.

#187 Posted by padaporra (3432 posts) -

Interesting. I enjoyed Dark Souls so I'm looking foward to this.

#188 Posted by HaloinventedFPS (4733 posts) -

Easily one of the best announcements of VGA. And the CGI looked amazing, something to you wouldn't have expected FS to pull off due to their history with graphics.

I can't wait for this.

It was most likely outsourced

I do hoe. And yes giving me a similar experience to a game I've already played is the type of stuff that creates fatigue. Dark Souls may have been similar to Demon's Souls, but they were willing to mess with the structure, and add stuff like Covenants. Gave the game some new life, while also improving a game that's mostly similar. I want them to go forward with it. Not make Dark Souls 2 like every other f*cking sequel ever.

I'm pretty sure it will come out on PC too, considering the comercial success of the original port. And this time we can expect a genuinely decent port instead of a crappy, late one.

I have full faith in From Software in this matter. The formula of Souls games is still fresh and there is a LOT of space for evolution. And according to the difference between Demons Souls and Dark Souls I believe From Software ppl are fully aware thereof.

I hope they shall keep the story-telling minimalistic and they could rise the difficulty a bit further, Dark Souls wasnt that hard once you learned how to play it.

As long as they maintain the same level of quality in their level design, combat, difficulty balance, and bosses, then it's perfectly fine. It's already an original and winning formula. There's no need to make any drastic changes if they keep meeting the high standards set by Demon's and Dark Souls.
