E3! *drool* 

 

It's been rumoured for a while Sony were going to get Demons Souls 2, but with Souls now being associated with multiplat maybe we're just going to get a souls game under a new name?

Hope they make it ala Demons Souls or Dark Souls but not like Dark Souls 2. So I guess , getting the original director back on boat is essential. Dark Souls 2 gameplay was made overly slow and reaction times are no longer relevant, it's all about strategy and anticipation now which is not bad but it takes a big chunk of skill out of the game. The physics also took a step downward in DkS2 from Demons/Dark Souls imo. 

 

On a slightly different note, Sony made a huge mistake ever letting the Souls series go multiplatform. The series has gone on to become critically acclaimed and sold in the millions.

Well the original creator Miyazaki has been working on this since DS1, on DS2 he handed the project over to someone else and only spent some time overseeing it.

 

Demons Souls is owned by Sony, but in order for all souls games to have been exclusive I think Sony would have to have bought From Software. That or contracted all the "souls" games, not just Demons. Not saying they shouldn't have, they should have, but its clear that they somehow thought they game wouldn't be as big a success as it was (Atlus were left to publish in US/EU). Silly Sony!

 

People are essentially classing this as Demon Souls 2 though, as with it being published by SCEJ, it will be exclusive.

'Project Beast' Screenshots Leaked: Possible PS4 Exclusive From Makers Of 'Dark Souls'

 

http://www.forbes.co...-of-dark-souls/

 

When Dark Souls II was announced we learned that Souls creator and director, Hidetaka Miyazaki, would not be leading the project. It was rumored that he was working on another project. There’s no telling if Project Beast is that project at this point, but it wouldn’t be surprising.
 
The game is also apparently being developed in conjunction with Sony's Japan Studio. That was the case with Demon’s Souls, the PS3 exclusive that kicked off the Souls franchise in 2009. If true, this would make Project Beast a PlayStation exclusive, and specifically a PS4 exclusive.

I'm a huge fan of the souls series but I can tell that I'm not good at the games :laugh: . I'm very excited for project beast, I do feel most of the resources were going into this title instead of Das2.

Souls with guns...yes! As long as they keep the more tactical pace. Lest it swallow you whole, as it has so many others: DmC, Bayonetta, etc.

 

I would really love a Souls/Armored Core cross-over, as well :D

Please let me face RRA in a giant mech bristling with nuclear warheads, please :cry:

Disappointed in the lack of Souls-Neowin. Andy why don't you play more Souls games? :p

Because I suck at them :( I love the style and setting, but I struggle to get into the gameplay. I don't know if it's because it just felt "clunky" or what, but something didn't click for me.

 

Which one is the most noob-friendly and I'll give it another go sometime.

Noob-friendly Souls game? I think that would be none of them :laugh:

I have enjoyed the series, but I'm sort of in the same camp as you. There are times when I have to stop playing for a while because of a long string of deaths in the same area, over and over. The gameplay can start to feel less then pleasant.

I don't mind the difficulty as such. I love and play roguelikes / permadeath games which I think go a level beyond Souls, but I can't put my finger on what I didn't like.

 

I haven't touched them since Demon Souls a few years ago when AB brought it to my attention, so maybe it has improved since then. I think both have been part of PS+ and GwG respecitvely so nothing to lose trying them again I guess. Will download them later, but still I'd like to know which is easier to get to grips with :p

Dark Souls 2 gameplay mechanics are the most refined Andy. Probably just try it.

Dark Souls has blightown.... Holy batman frame rate drops.

You're missing out on Dark Souls 2, it's crazy accessible. They finally nailed the challenging but rewarding balance right. Demon's Souls was just too brutal. Dark Souls 2 is my GOTY thus far, so defo recommended.
