Aww... I hate bad voice directing.

If I wasn't on full-media-blackout-mode for Dark Souls 2 since 5 minutes into the 15 minutes unveil gameplay footage, I'd be all over this!

Preview'ish content is my favorite editorial content when it comes to videogames. Tell me all your wishes dreams and fears. The Wishmaster is listening.

Patrick calling things in Dark Souls "shit" because they weren't how he wanted. Ever think a better item comparison wasn't in the game because the devs didn't want it in the game? Maybe, you know...because they wanted you to actually fucking think and take some time in a video game which is a rare thing these days.

Half the joy of the game was because the game made it hard for you to do things. Go play one of the 100000 third person games out there that have a billion on screen UI elements and hold your hand through the whole game

@vinny The game is a sequel far off in the distant future from Dark Souls 1. Item descriptions found in the beta made it very clear.

So Dark Souls is beyond critique, then? You know, because elements of the game can never be flawed--instead, they're intended to make the game more hardcore, am I right?

Make the gameplay however hard you want to, that's what we are here for. But bad UI is inexcusable, and in previous Souls games it was complete shit. It doesn't add to the difficulty, it is just annoying and tedious.

As RVonE said above, these games aren't immune to critique, as they are not perfect.

Jeff at the end was great.

Yeah, that's a pretty weird thing to say. What the Souls games do well is when they present you with a scenario and expect you to pay attention in order to get out of it alive. An UI that needlessly obfuscates something, and poorly explained mechanics are not among the things that make those games so good.

To Klepick: There is a mode in the inventory where your stash items are always compared to what is equipped. No denying however, DS's menu took some getting used to.

Is the video failing to load properly after the first few seconds of playing for anyone else?

No, the UI was by no means shit, and everything Patrick made the complaint about was present in Dark Souls. The only thing was that it was not made immediately obvious on a surface level, and required 1-2 extra button presses. Honestly, it's similar to Jeff and Vinny's complaints about Persona 4's UI. Everything you want to know is there, just not all on the same screen at the same time.

Can it be streamlined further and made a bit more elegant? Sure. Is it anywhere close to 'shit'? No.

That's cool. I'm happy if some stuff is tied together at all. Just wonder if they'll address any of what happened in Dark Souls 1. I know the lands might be completely different and distant, but I feel like these games always take place in the ruins of some great civilization and it would have been nice to play before the fall or be the cause of it.

nah, the UI is pretty bad regardless of if it was intended or not. the fact that such a stat heavy game doesnt immediately present key information is ridiculous considering they could have looked at several games as example of it being done well. "Large Soul of a Nameless Soldier" - Use to acquire many souls. "Many" souls... yep perfectly quantifiable. I particularly hate the upgrade menu that doesnt show you how much weapons ultimately scale or when weapons cant be upgraded anymore until you've already dumped resources into it.

Are there any spoiler-ish things in this video concerning Dark Souls II? Curious on their thoughts but don't want to ruin any new features of Dark Souls II too much.

Posted by Zacagawea

There was most definitely a way to compare in shops, Scoops. Even if there wasn't, that situation would almost never happen anyway because what are you doing buying weapons from shops.

Posted by rolvtd

Anyone else have issues with the video cutting out after 12-15 sec? Everything else on Giantbomb works, but for some reason this video keeps going to a blank screen.

Posted by mpgeist

Video dies for me after 16 seconds everytime I try and watch it.

God, I'd love to see two shields that are, in fact, one shield that you have to duel wield to use effectively and just plow though enemies.

Edited by Cinnase7en

@freedomtown: But there are many "shit" things in Dark Souls. Even if the dev wanted it that way, it doesn't automatically make it "good" or well designed. It can suck.
