Are you passing on Dark Souls 2 since it has been casualized ?

Maybe Dark Souls 2 will finally be good if they are really going to beef up the story. Both of the other games were trash to me because I do not find RPG's to be worth playing when there is not really a story involved.

TC has "they changed it now it sucks" syndrome and yet we barely know anything about the game. Sometimes I wonder about my fellow gamers.

Hey guys MLB 13 will have a separate beginner mode designed to help new players? And all the other modes are still there? How lame. I'm passing on it since it's been casualized.

You gotta change that, because you are missing out on some awesome RPGs.

I used to be like that, now I can't stand playing for several hours just to get 5 minutes of story.

If story is your thing, I'd recommend the Adventure or IF genres.

Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

We have no hard evidence that it has been "casualized". It requires poor comprehension of the very few things that have been said about the the game to draw that conclusion.

However, there is plenty of evidence of gamers being "hipsterized" this gen. Normally, people rejoice when they are no longer unfairly shunned by society due to their hobbies. This is not true for some gamers. They have taken their social acceptance and decided they need to isolate themselves by acting like pretentious snobs until everyone hates them for good reasons.

I'll get it when it's cheap, I still prefer Demon's Souls to Dark Souls and I have a feeling I will like Dark Souls 2 less than the others.

Wait they might be getting rid of the god awful combat mechanics of *read pattern, analyze, counter* that made the first one an absolute joke of a cakewalk fest?

Day 1 buy then.

Don't know if you realized but all games have been dumbed down and casualized.
#60Aarosmashguy27Posted 1/2/2013 10:55:44 PM
I'm going to buy this game no matter what but if I don't like it then the next one I probably won't. I trust that they can make another good game and won't judge it before I've had a chance to play it.
