    If they make Dark Souls 4 everyone will complain they keep making the same thing.

    They make Sekiro and people complain that its different.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Maybe I imagined it but I think Miyazaki said he wanted to do a sci fi thing? I would love to see something wildly different from FROM, but still maintaining DS sensibilities. The worst thing about creating something as game changing as DS series is most people see the core game designs and philosophies as tied into the aesthetics and genre. I mean just look at all the "dark souls-likes"...

    I've been trying to reignite my interest for the past few days. I think it's working! Albeit a bit slowly. But I'm sure it's gonna come back to me when it unlocks on steam! It's similar to how it went with dark souls 3, but I wasn't this reflective on my feeling towards it then, lmao. I have faith in sekiro!

    So Youtubers didn't get advanced copies this time around? If I vaguely remember with DS3 Twitch was full of the game a week before release.

    I think most youtube/twitch streamers got invited to tokyo instead of a pre release copy. Some were able to show some gameplay and shit but thats all.

    I dunno about everyone else, but I for one will never stop whining about review embargoes. It's a scummy practice that encourages consumers to make uninformed purchases, particularly if they want to be a part of the initial wave and exploratory phase of vidya discussion, which is especially pertinent to Souls games. Fuck review embargoes.

    Ok?

    Reviews for Sekiro are coming out a day before the game itself.

    If you're pre-ordering games then you're a retard anyway. You won't miss "muh exploratory phase" by waiting a day or two to see first impressions from paying beta testers.

    I agree with that. But the embargo itself is no reason for being pessimistic about the game, like other user some comments ago.

    Review embargo is definitely a scummy practice but I won't read any reviews anyway. They'll be either written by imbeciles or full of spoilers. I'll just briefly check the user score on Meta, if there isn't any major technical or Activision related problem.

    TBH I would love to see a Sword & Planet souls-like game from Miyazaki.

    I had this argument in another thread, but 90% of the time, you can absoluely tell wether a game is gonna suck elephant dick or not before any reviews hit. If the game isn't an obvious shit fest, then the only question that remains is just how enjoyable the entire thing is. Is it middling? Is it great? An IGN review won't answer this.

    If you're a gaming enthusiast, which I assume everybody who posts here is, then regular reviews are almost completely irrelevant.

    Even "specialist" reviews can't be relied upon. All the Souls Yutubers and Twitchers were raving about DS3 and that game ended up pissing me off galactically. And many of my favourite Soulers shat on DS2 profusely and I ended up having such a blast playing it I can't even.

    So no, fuck everyone else's opinion, I'll make my own.

    Right before its release, ENB used to rave about Dark Souls 2, claiming it was even better than Dark Souls 1. We follow each other on twitter and I saw his top 25 games of all time list he posted yesterday. Dark Souls 1 is his #2 while Dark Souls 2 isn't even on the list. I like the guy and he does know his shit, but this is a prime example of how hype ruins everything.

    edit: this is not a statement on the quality of DkS2 or 3, just how quick opinions can change.

    They did. A jap streamer is going to be streaming the full game later today. If it's anything like DkS3, they'll have to stop streaming after a certain point.

    But pre-ordering doesn't cost a thing and you can just choose not to buy your copy if you don't want it on release day after all.
