BACK TO DARK SOULS
Kayin, the guy who made I Wanna Be The Guy, wrote this piece on Dark Souls. I like what he said about the world design and how it handles story.
i need to get back to dark souls i took a break to watch six seasons of "lost"
i really liked the article. especially the criticisms/improvements part. i'd love to have a talk about this quote and follow up comment.
kayin: "Perhaps from From Software, perhaps from future clones like Dragon Dogma that might truly establish these conventions as a genre. If they do, it will be a victory for gaming in general."
@Kayin Thanks for the mention in the post btw! I canâ€™t really argue with what you said, although I will definitely try to make some kind of in-depth response about the last bit of your post involving the untapped potential for this kind of game format, because itâ€™s something that gets on my mind a lot. Thereâ€™s a huge missing link between Demon/Dark Souls and other modern games, and somewhere in that unexplored space is a revolutionary game that I very much hope will be realized.
i'd love if there were a "souls-like" sub-genre to hone this style a little. i'm not sure if dragon's dogma is quite a "soul's-like" but i'll be pleased if it's close.
