    I tried playing the game once, the first one, but the controls gave me cancer (that was before i figured out i could use mouse and keyboard with the emulator lmao. Should give it another go with that).

    The game is very archaic, with primitive, woobly PS1 era graphics and really awkard first person combat, but compared to Dark Souls it has even less hand holding, with more complex level design (made even harder by the fact everything looks the same) and it just feels like the type of game a mainstream developer would never make, even someone like From. If they do remake it, it wouldn't be the same.

    Well yeah, they get a cut of every game sold on their system. It kind of makes very little sense for them to release games on PC, especially in a time when they dominate the console landscape.

    Yeah it was about 15 months between Sekiro announcement and the launch. But with ER we're already past that and still no word about it. The game almost certainly won't launch before March 2021 which means almost two years between its announcement and launch. Something definitely went wrong here. Probably another DS2 situation, seeing as it was the first open-world game for FS.

    I hope this game turns out to be a direct sequel to Eternal Ring.

    Searching for "caregiving for older adults" gives incredible results. A couples of notable examples:

    And a cut for every almost-mandatory multiplayer subscription. You put your exclusive on a different platform you're looking at $20 or so per retail copy sold there, you get them to buy into your platform instead and you not only get a cut from every sale but you also rack in all the money from recurring $10+ psplus/xbox gold memberships.

    thats the same argument that assumes that if I pirate your game I would buy it if I cant pirate it. you would need an actual metric of people buying your console just for this one game (and possibly subscribing to your service) against the money you would make from non exclusivity and people buying it on other plattforms.

    I really hope that they don't fall into the same open world trope that every other game is falling into. Almost everything that was good about their games wouldn't fit in open world. But then again, it really depends on how big and open it is, and maybe if their view on open world is different than the views of other dev studios.

    I really hope they're thinking Risen or Zelda (not the last one...) and not Elder Scrolls.

    "there are themes of racism, politics, citizenship,"

    Beware Japan. Don't let current West influence into your country.

    Too late, they got G.R.R Martin to write the story. Expect some liberal nerd shit.

    We are gonna miss the cryptic evocative nonsense. Hard to ignore SJW edgy narrative.

    That was the case the moment they picked a western writer. That cryptic evocative nonsense reflect that "negative" eastern mindset, where as westerners are all about mental projection.

    Open world + western writing = Twitcher 3 with good combat, and that's the best case scenario. UNLESS From software just doesn't give a shit and makes another Dark Souls straight up and "open world" and Martin are only there for marketing.

    After Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Sekiro, I trust FS with everything. I would even buy a mobile game with lootboxes in it from them.

    Sekiro was the only FS game that I returned so I am a little more realistic now. Very possible that Elden Ring won’t be on the same genre-defining level as DS1 & that’s ok.

    Never played Sekiro but i don't think it was advertised as Soul-like (or an RPG like Dark Souls was), where as Elder Ring is.
