    Default Confirmed: Dark Souls 2!

    Dark Souls 2 has officially been announced for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC!

    The trailer, which premiered during the Video Game Awards on Spike this evening is a tad hard to find at the moment. This may actually be a direct sequel to the sensational Dark Souls (which is getting tons of love from our EoFF group).

    Not my favorite site, but at least they have A trailer of it!

    It looks positively exciting! Though, the trailer style reminds me more of Demons Souls.

    EDIT: I, of course, was off. But here is more information regarding the title. I will post an HD version of the trailer when that is released.

    I don't really understand how it will work story-wise. I'm looking forward to it anyway, though!

    Pretty much the biggest news to reach EoFF all year. Ain't that saying something?

    They see me rolling. They hating, patrolling.
    Trying to catch me riding dirty.

    CRAZY. HYPED! But I'm a little scared too. Dark Souls is like... my precious

    True!

    Questions, speculations & first thoughts:

    No references to Lordran in the trailer: GOOD. Miyazaki is NOT directing this time, but he is supervising. Which is a little worry-some but comforting at the same time. I reckon we jump to the Age of Dark after the fire has faded, and the Dark spread to a neighboring land. The knight looks like he's on a pilgrimage, travelling far from home. The masked figures wear something resembling the black leather armor Patches wears in Dark Souls. If they know what they're doing, they will not re-use a single bit of Lordran geographically. The lady and the knight; what's the feather for? Is there romance involved? The bridge obviously reminds us of Ariamis, but there's no snow on it so I think we're safe. The dragon has one eye in it's forehead. That is awesome.

    I don't want to be a negativitron, but I can't help but feeling Spoiler Dark Souls doesn't need a II. Don't get me wrong, I am hyped and my opinion is open for whatever II is going to give us, but right now I feel I'd rather see a new "Insert-dark-word Souls". That way they would leave the masterpiece that is Dark Souls rest forever on it's pedestal, never to be fouled with failed attempts to reach the same heights in sequels or spin-offs. But hey, bring it, Fromsoft; prove me wrong and thou shall be praised like the sun!

    Exactly how I feel; players who were in chat last night were trying to make me happy with the news, but Dragon's Souls or Black Souls or X Souls would have been way more ideal than tacking a two on anything. I am excited, but also a little put out.

    Default Now that I'm finally sober enough... I can finally make a sensible post.

    I definitely understand the sentiment of wanting a Something Souls game, but this seems as unexpected as Dark Souls was when it was announced. It may only be Dark Souls 2 in order to let people know that it is related to Dark Souls. I only say this because I met quite a number of people that knew of Dark Souls, but were clueless as to what Demons Souls is.

    What worries me is having a new director and Miyzaki only taking a supervisory roll in all of this, like Pete said. Here's to hoping it turns out well. For the most part, I like everything Pete said. I didn't even realize the black leather armor, but they tend to use a lot of the same armor between the two games. What I would love to have in the game is another slight trolling. That would make my day.

    I have the feeling it'll be a prequel if they re-use Lordran.

    Also, in regards to the feather you're talking about, Pete: (SPOILER)Solaire's got one in his helmet...The lady could be Velka for all we know.

    Yeah that makes sense. I hope that's the case. I just watched ENB's analysis video (though it's censored for whatever reason, somehow FromSoft doesn't understand the fact that ENB provides thousands of views of free marketing for them but I digress) and he pointed out some interesting, but sometimes worry-some stuff. Check it: Dark Souls 2 Trailer Analysis (EpicNameBro) - YouTube

    Speculations aside, I do have faith in FromSoft.

    How can you tell? It's a pre-rendered cutscene.

    Also, no, it's not. Dragons are intelligent, usually frighteningly so, and they're frelling cheap unchivilrous bastards on top of that. A dragon would not land. It has no reason to. It would nuke the poor warrior from the air, where it has superior mobility and is out of range of those punishing swords.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    Well if the last games dragons were of any hint, these guys know how to make a dragon. Plus pre-rendered or not, the design was glorious.

    So there.
