    God I hope the game doesn't take cues from western titles like The Witcher 3...just make the combat enjoyable and add exploration/openness like the first half of Dark Souls 1. I'm really cynical about the whole George R.R. Martin thing, feels super unnecessary.

    What Phil is trying to say here is that he wants to buy From Software, too.

    What if Eldenring ended up being a 1st person dungeon crawler like Kings Field?

    Why? From what I can tell it seems like he was only involved in helping create the world and background lore for the game. I doubt that it’s going to make or break the game either way, but having some outside inspiration might keep the world from being a retread of the same ideas Miyazaki’s already done.

    Good points, if he's just influencing the lore and adding cool stuff that's fine I just don't want some big sprawling story heavy "epic" adventure. I don't want The Witcher 3: Jrpg edition but I doubt that would happen anyway and yeah I know George didn't write the Witcher that's just an example I like to use.

    Yeah, this has me feeling a little cautious. There are other authors who might fit FromSoft better. Isn't he more interested in tax systems than metaphysics lol.



    George R R Martin isn't that well known for mythic themes in the psychological sense, but Dark Souls was Jungian as fuck; there was an ocean (primordial chaos) under everything (reality/the land), with things becoming more dreamlike the further down you went (into raw information and the subconscious). The universe was in a constant state of entropic decay (like civilization), and the duty of the individual was to delay the entropy by upholding fire, just like ancient Norse (delaying Ragnarok), ancient Egyptian (preserving Ma'at) and ancient Hindu (preserving Rta, delaying the Kali Yuga) and Christian (preserving Logos). FromSoft are kinda doing a big service by making games so unapologetically philosophical, and I hope Elden Ring continues. People see hints of both Celtic and Norse myth in the trailer.

    George R R Martin however is definitely known for delaying his products. Man, this sounds so familiar...

    Spent way too much work on the tv series, would be a miracle if we even see the second last book in the series getting released.

    And all that without looking pretentious, which is what many western devs fail to do.

    The joke is ruined if you repeat half-naked girls and titties out multiple times every other sentence.

    It seems we are going to get a new Elden Ring trailer finally during Game Awards today. It's sad it will be put between a strong tranny game winning so many awards though.
