More bosses? How about a scoring system. Or less punishment for mistakes and more action game skills.

Aw hell I'll just play Bayonetta or NG again. hmm or maybe some more Tales of Graces F.. quite an impressive action combat game for an RPG.

If anything I'm happy with this. I'm far from being a big fan of the series but since it will not be just anther port it might actually use the strenghts of the PC.

As for me, Maybe I'll get it in one of those crazy steam promotions because I already had the copy I ordered lost by the mail, just got lucky I could borrow my cousin's game.

How would that make the game better?

Or less punishment for mistakes and more action game skills.

What do you exactly mean by action oriented skills?

Maybe he means something more dependent on fast reflexes? Personally I'm grateful Dark Souls ISN'T like that, I'd have a lot more trouble otherwise.

A scoring system measures skill.

I'm disturbed at Demon's/Dark Souls popularity and why people keep claiming it's a difficult game and how they love "difficult" games. But look at this list of competitive, skill based single player games. They are almost all unpopular or niche games, despite being some of the most difficult and skill based single player games ever created. So what makes Dark Souls so popular and why do people keep claiming it's difficult when it's a punishing grind/patience action RPG with a sluggishly controlled character? If people love difficult games, why aren't the ones I listed more popular?

The only reason Demon's and Dark Souls are considered difficult is for its design and the way the game expect you to play it with not much guidance. Anyone that has put hours on both games will tell you that they are not hard, if anything they are pretty tricky, annoying and extremely enjoyable experiences. And after that a bunch people will say that you're crazy for even saying such a thing. But hey, it's true.

PvP is full of BS on both games though.

If people love difficult games, why aren't the ones I listed more popular?

Because normal people suck at playing video games.

I'm not saying that gamers are super humans, but to finish and play games like Ninja Gaiden Black, Vanquish or DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou at their maximun levels of difficulty (like they are suppose to be played in the first place) is something that required a lot of passion and time. Something that not much people is willing to do.

from Siliconera:

"Prepare to Die Edition will include an untold chapter in the world of Lordran, where the player has to defeat the Dark Knight, Artorias. The game will include new bosses such as Chimera of Tomb and more. New enemies include the Abyss Guard, Chained Prisoner and others.

It will also feature new areas, such as Oolacile Tomb, Old Ruins and more.  Since there are new enemies and bosses, you’ll also be able to equip new weapons and armour from them, and from new NPCs as well." -- Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will include a new story chapter, new enemies.


Holy crap, Artorias!? Oolacile Tomb? That's awesome. D:

Yeah, I'm extremely excited about Artorias.  Here's to hoping it's not going to be GFWL-only.

Strange that of all games I personally think new content actually lessens the story. Wasn't the whole point of Seeth the Scaleless that he murdered every other dragon in existence? And what's one of the new bosses? A black dragon. -.-

Those dragons may be undead, though.

Actually, this might be a reference to King's Field, nevermind what IS in the game:

Dark Souls:
Code: [Select]
There's the ancient dragon for the Dragon covenant, so clearly at least a small handful are kicking around still. It's just that their position as the sole force of the world was completely upended with the arrival of the Lords.
King's Field:
Code: [Select]
Seath is the "Good" god, with the counterpart of Guyra being the "Evil" god. It seems very likely to me that in continuing with this reference that black dragon is going to end up being Guyra, and given Seath being a callback to King's Field there's a good chance he was planned for all along.
