I just died. I'm ****ing dead.

Here I was thinking we won't see another Souls game for a while, and today I just wake up like any other day, and all of a sudden, they come up with this... monstrosity this very day. I would be seriously lying if I said Dark Souls 2 would be announced today earlier. This is far, FAR too unexpected.

I welcome any chance to kill me over and over, my dear Souls. Bring it on! Day 1 baby!

This is awesome news.

Also noone should worry about this being dumbed down.

Demon's Souls gained it's notoriety for being brutally difficult Dark Souls marketed itself, and it's expansion around it's difficulty and it paid off in the reviews/sales/reception..

From wouldn't even think of dumbing it down, in fact, expect these games to get harder.

I wished they announced it at a separate event though. It was blasphemy against From that the DLC wasn't nominated for the VGAs in the Best DLC category.

I wouldn't worry too much about them saying they are trying to make it more accessible. They said something similar with the first Dark Souls. It was kinda weird and contradictory, but I remember the director said he wanted to make it more accessible while also making it harder.

They honestly don't have to do much. You can already kinda customize the difficulty of the game by what equipment you use. For example, using the Drake sword turns the game into easy mode at the beginning.

That said, this is also what annoys me about some Souls players. I remember a bunch of idiots basically equipping the cheapest most broken weapons to get through the game and then complaining about how easy the game was. If you're going to claim you want a challenge, don't use the special broken weapons the specifically put in to help weaker players out.

Also has Namco-Bandai listed on there. Should we be worried that there isn't gonna be dedicated servers again?
