Dark Souls 3 trailer and Impressions


My Thoughts:

One of the major complaints about Dark Souls 2 was that the enemies were too humanoid. Due to the ubiquity of the criticism, i find it odd that nearly every enemy in this trailer is also humanoid. Maybe this was done in an attempt to not spoil anything, but i can’t help but feel that it only would have helped had From Software showed off some more interesting monster designs.

You know what else may have helped? If they remembered this was a Dark Souls game, and not Bloodborne. Now don’t get me wrong, Bloodborne is the first game i intend to get when i get a PS4, but one of the things that makes me want to play it so badly is that it isn’t the same game play as the Souls Games. So when i see a souls game with faster, more agile, Bloodborne style combat i begin to get worried. Things don’t get any better when you consider that Bloodborne came out this year an Dark Souls 3 is slated for an 2016 release. With these two games suffer the same fate as the Call of Duty franchise, yearly installments of nearly identical games with only a title to differentiate them? I hope not, but that is where this looks to be heading.
