Dark Souls sequel confirmed and Fallout 1 free on GoG now

April 5, 2012

Dark Souls sequel confirmed and Fallout 1 free on GoG nowThe creator of Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls confirmed that From Software will continue to make a sequel to the series. Both games have garnered a following and have been critically acclaimed for its difficult yet satisfying gameplay.

In an interview with GameTrailers, From Software’s R&D head, Masanori Takeuchi revealed that the the studio is looking to broaden its horizon for its next follow up to Dark Souls. Takeuchi stated that the next game will be geared towards a global audience instead of just towards a core niche group.

The success of both Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls, which have each sold over a million [copies] per title worldwide, has made us shift our thinking internally to not just core gamers, but to globalize our products, that they can be successful on a worldwide scale. That’s now one of the key pillars we consider when we develop games in the future.

When asked if there will be a sequel to Dark Souls, he stated:

Of course, it’s not over yet. You have to go back to our roots, which is King’s Field. We’ve made many games in that series. We’ve always been enamored by dark fantasy action RPGs. That’s just been our core DNA and I think we’ll continue to utilize that.

When probed over the growing rumors of a PC port of Dark Souls, Takeuchi simply indicated that this decision is in the hands of the publisher, Bandai Namco.

In other news, fans of the Fallout series can head on over to GoG.com, as the distribution site is offering the first Fallout game for free for a limited time. You must register for a free account to be able to download the game, which clocks in at a sizable 506MB with full voice dialog.

    I’m concerened that this will change the game. Making it much easier as to appeal to a broader audience! Part of what makes these games so enjoyable for me is the difficulty! Hope my concerns do not come to pass when the games comes out! :)

    @Kushy

    I was thinking the same thing when I read that.

  3. FahKinSuPah:

    They going to pull a Ninja Gaiden?

  6. Roca.:

    Dark Souls only needs to let you play online with your friends. Making it easier is going to ruin the game.

    I just picked up my copy of Xenoblade Chronicles. For a Wii game it looks pretty fucking awsome. On my way home I kept looking at the art book that I got with it and it just looked amazing.

    Yeah, why make a game for 100 gamers? Not going to make their money’s worth. Unless they mean move and kinect. Fuck that shit.

  10. CarlB:

    I hate to say it… but Dance Central is actually kind of fun… and a decent work out.

  11. ncaissie:

    I had upgraded my PS3 HDD to 260GB last year. It just died and I’m back to the 80GB for now. I’m just thankful I’m a plus member and had all my game saves in the cloud.

  12. ncaissie:

    I think I’ll play Batman AC this weekend. And try to get into ME2.

  13. FahKinSuPah:

    Gamestop is having its yearly spring time big sale again… They got AC: Revelations on sale for $20 so I picked it up the other day when I picked up my copy of Xenoblade Chronicles.

    I just started playing AC:R this morning.

  14. ncaissie:

    Cool, I picked it up there at that price too. It was boxing day. I still need to play it lol.

  15. FahKinSuPah:

    They also have White Knight Chronicles for $20 as well but I didn’t have enough money to buy it.

    I figure once I finish AC:R I’m going to start up Xenoblade Chronicles. game looks so sweet

  16. FahKinSuPah:

    AC:R is kinda cool so far. I haven’t gotten to explore that much but I will later. Looks like it will mostly be set in Istanbul. I liked the settings in 1, and loved 2, but didn’t like Rome so much in Brotherhood. I kinda like the setting in this one so far but I obviously have a lot more to see.

  17. Roca.:

    just came home from PAX East 2012…

    I’ll upload some pics later today.

    Did you get a picture with Lollipop Chainsaw before she got kicked out? ;) If not:

  20. CarlB:

    fucking fat ugly bitches getting all upset over hot women showing what they got… Jessica’s outfit was fine… indecent exposure my ass… that is one most decent example… the crime would be if she “put on a sweater” over those babies.

  21. FahKinSuPah:

    Thats pretty fucked up. Musta been a bunch of gay guys attending…

  22. Roca.:

    there were many hot women showing just as much or more at PAX.

    I was able to play a few games:

    -Spec Ops: The Line and Dragon Dogma were amazing. I was really immpressed with these two games…I’m def getting both.

    -Had fun playing Ghost Recon :FS co-op mode.

    -I finished 2nd during a Far Cry 3 LAN match. I wasn’t impressed with its online mode…really good graphics (PC version tho)

    -Warner Bros was showing many games, including The Witcher 2 (x360) and Lollipop Chainsaw…I was really impressed with The Witcher 2 demo. I might pick this up for the 360 8) out of all the WB games, Lollipop Chainsaw had the biggest line.

    -Borderlands 2 is more of the same.

    -Couldn’t try out the Max Payne 3 demo as the line was huge, biggest line at the even by far.

    -Nintendo’s booth was full of crappy 3DS games. Most of them were already out.

    -Microsoft’s floor was full of Kinect shovelware. Steel Battalion also uses the 360 controller.

    -Sony was MIA :(

  23. phranctoast:

    Sounds like the women running my HR dept also run PAX east.

  24. FahKinSuPah:

    @ncaissie

    One thing I like about AC: Revelations is they added bombs to your arsenal.

    You dont just get bombs to kill, but you get them for tactical uses too.

    One of my favs is the blood bomb. It’s supposed to be used to fool a target into thinking they were injured. My favorite use for it is using it to get those harrassers off my back. As soon as they come up asking for money I just drop one of those suckers and watch the chaos lmao

  25. ncaissie:

    Cool, I played about 5 minutes of it. I always try the games I buy even if I can’t play them right away. I’m finishing up Enslaved right now. Then I’m moving on to both batmans.

  26. FahKinSuPah:

    @ncaissie

    IMHO AC:R is better than AC:B.

    When Im done with AC:R i’m moving onto Xenoblades.

  27. ncaissie:

    I don’t have brotherhood but I have a couple of other AC games. I dont recall off hand.

  28. CaptBirdman:

    I’m actually thinking about playing DS and Skyrim.

    I must be high, cause I also want to play Rage and Dead Island again too.

    I agree with Roca that making the sequel “easier” will ruin the game, but then again, they will make more money by going mainstream. Sometimes, especially those of us that are passionate about gaming, we tend to forget that games are a business, and the bottom line is all that matters to some (read: almost everyone in the gaming industry) people.

    Don’t eat the brown acid.
