If you cannot find what you like in games anymore, it might just be that you don't like gaming as much as you use too.

I think this is certainly the case with me. As a child I could play any and all games and love them but these days it takes a very certain kind of game for me to enjoy it. I don't seem to do casual gaming. I either won't play it or I'll play it from the moment I wake up right through until 4am without eating the whole day.


I think this just might be it, actually. I dunno, I think I've become too much of a jaded fuck when it comes to entertainment. I'm beginning to notice it not just in games, but music/movies/books etc.

Oh, well. I guess it's back to some old favorites for now.

"They just need to not pay attention to anything in Dark Souls 2"

Except gameplay. Going back to the feel of the other 2 games would be a huge back step. They feel quite clunky in comparison, partly due to inferior animation.

I meant to say similar. Don't know how the hell I managed that haha.


Lel I don't see any reason for a vast change. So far combat wise, the changes that i'm aware of are no shields and a health leech system where once you get hit by a monster there's a short timeframe immediately after where you'll gain health back for every enemy you hit. Pretty creative if you ask me.

Don't expect a completely different game. I expect them to only slightly build up on the existing formula through addition of guns, transformable weapons, no shields, health leech system etc and I have no problem with that. They just need to not pay attention to anything in Dark Souls 2 and just expand on Demon's Souls and Dark Souls.

My qualm is that it's not a souls game, and they said this would be more action oriented. I have not really seen that. The only difference so far is they've replaced a shield with a gun that works like a ranged parry on some enemies.

1:40 of the video above you see the health leech. Transforming weapons is in the gamescom trailer. I have no complaints about the game so far ^.^

I knew about the health leech from watching Vaati's video about it. I'm fine with more Dark Souls tbh, but why not just call it something else to do with souls if it's going to change fuck all?

I'm not really following ;_; Is your issue with the fact that they're using pretty much the same formula under a completely new name?

Tbh I don't have an issue. Dark Souls is my all time favourite game, and if this is more Dark Souls, I'll be over the moon. It just seems odd to me, and it seems like I'm missing something, or that something is going to change. Because originally this was announced as a sequel to Demon's Souls, so I'm just more interested in whether this is all the game has to offer or whether we're being lead along my Miyazaki. Seems like something he'd do, the sneaky bugger.

Funny, I found a lot of the enemies had totally unrealistic weight behind them. Many were able to swing giant weapons in jerky, unrealistic ways. Souls 2 just felt more fluid, realistic and gave you much more control, as well as animating enemies in correct and logical ways. Rolling in Demons and Souls 1 feels wholly unnatural after playing 2 as well.

So, hang on a sec, the second Dark Souls 2 DLC is already out? Anyone else thinking that these DLCs were finished at the same time but were split into two for the extra money?

Any Ultra Street Fighter IV player on steam here? They still have to fix some lag issues but it could be nice to try the game with other MSers.

Bloodborne boss footage. Sounds like Attila's doing the voicework


Not totally sold on that gameplay, looks a bit simple and easy; enemies die in one or two hits; you get loads of health back with each hit. The lack of blocking might make up for it though.

That art style though wrecks anything in any Souls game.

Agreed, it was absolutely fantastic.

As for the difficulty issues, they probably just toned it down a lot for the presentation purposes.

Art style really is superior. They said the difficulty was toned down but by how much I cannot say.

My favourite quote so far is Miyazaki saying that he wants to capture the horror feel of the Tower of Latria world from Demon's Souls. Since that is one of my favourite areas, I'm super psyched. I love when the Souls games dip into horror, so I guess this will be a treat!

Just started playing Sword of Mana (about 3 hours in atm). It's fun, if not a bit easy. The li'l cactus thing in the hot house is the most adorable thing ever.

Just started a game JRPG called Ys Origin. Can't really comment on it as of yet but the female character option is a melee based while the male is a mage which I haven't seen that often.

I think I played that for a bit on PC. I didn't get the "hype" around it at all. Really boring to play, ugly to look at action RPG. Maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance though.

Well I enjoy it so far. It's your standard RPG customisation wise. You get a choice of 2 characters (3rd one is locked) and their stats naturally increase as you level up. You can't fiddle with it ie choose how many points go in which stat. You acquire skill points by killing enemies and use it to spend on blessings to strengthen your character. There are only about a dozen blessings to choose from however.

I'm fond of the art style. The hack and slash isn't a turn off for me and you can acquire special abilities which can also be leveled up. I'm playing on hard and it's definitely not the easiest game out there. In fact i've heard it's suppose to get properly hard later on. Saves points aren't too abundant either which is good.

I can see myself finishing this game.

Just finished Metro Redux. The changes turn a flawed gem into one of the best FPS games of this generation. The game runs at a consistent framerate, the escort missions have been changed so they aren't teeth grindingly annoying, the gunplay has been tightened up, and the stealth mechanics actually work now! Plus there are two modes: Spartan and Survival. Spartan makes the game a more shooty bang bang affair, whereas Survival is not shit. You can also use ranger for both.

Looking forward to playing Metro: Last Light now!

From what I understand it's barely any different. Only minor changes. I don't think it really needed it though. Good to hear about Metro 2033. I already thought that was one of the best single player FPses in recent times.

I've read that they changed the protagonists voice though? If so that was a terrible decision. He was fantastic and gave a very realistic and downtrodden performance, compared to the generic gruff Russian voice actor of Last Light.

I'd play it, but even on low settings I get shit frames. PC ain't a PoS either. I know there's a cfg fix for it but i'm too lazy to deal with that stuff. I thought Last Light was pretty average though.

Also Joe, too bad you didn't fancy Ys Origin. It's great. It's damn tough too. I'm playing on the hardest difficulty. I feel there's no sense in playing a hack and slash on an easy difficulty. Mobs can easily kill you. The bosses are very well refined and difficult. All the ones i've faced so far have required multiple attempts, one required like 20 and I don't believe I was underleveled. Reminds me of my early days in Souls

I had a look at some youtube clips yesterday and the bosses did look quite nicely animated. I dunno though. Hack and slash RPGs of that nature seem to me like an oxymoron I don't think I could enjoy really. If it's an action RPG I think there should be at least some strategy and consideration involved like Terranigma or something.

To be honest I'm pretty much done with generic JRPG story and character tropes anyway. I just wasted £20 on Tales of Xillia which I got bored with after about 5 hours.

Yeah they changed his voice. It does suck, but it's only on loading screens so I guess it doesn't matter as much.

Also, I'm just playing the original Last Light. I only bought 2033 because I figured the second one wouldn't have changed much.
