the trailer is pretty good, martin being attached is maybe the least interesting part of the overall pitch of elden ring.

that sounds like the perfect move - i don't think martin lacks for ideas but nothing of his i've read tells me he can improve on what works for souls' line-to-line writing.

Yeah, he basically just came up with the setting and wrote some history for it, from what I remember.

Day of Devs is a nice palette cleanser from "like hitler" and "we're a new studio for Sony with literally nothing to show." Just pleasant gameplay from indie games.

The issue is that Dark Souls 3 was five years ago and as great as Sekiro was most people saw it as a cute little little side project between Souls and Ring.

That and the two years of radio silence hosed with people's heads. They shouldn't have announced it so early.

ah yeah theyre magnum opus that had 500x more care put into it than ds3. a cute side project.

they shouldve. everyones brains have been injured by the insane cycles everyone else uses. from always drops a trailer early, then keeps quiet until its ready. this is the platonic ideal that all devs should follow so ppl stop losing their minds.

Like I'm not trying to disparage anybody for liking discworld, like I said in an earlier post we all like things at certain times in our lives that speak to us for who we are at the time. If I had read discworld as a kid I'd probably have fond memories of it too, but I didnt. I read the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy and at 12 years old it was the most hilarious thing in the world. I have fond memories of it. Though if I were to read it again today it would probably be pretty disappointing

both of those things are still really good and you probably wouldn't be disappointed. you have a point about liking things, but you're choosing the worst examples of good Classic poo poo that's just Good and not like attached to nostalgia, like any number of corny poo poo I liked in highschool and can't even recall to bring up as an example since have outgrown that and the source material wasn't worth remembering forever.

I have a collection of the original Icewind Dale trilogy and I started reading it a couple years ago before I fell off. It wasnít bad but had a shocking amount of spelling errors

All the cool things from the Elden Ring trailer add up to SekiEurope more than Darksoulsen Ring. Looks like they used Sekiro to really flesh out their combat system, movement smoothness, better controls, and smooth verticality and grappling to gives levels more depth and interesting terrain and more combat options. If they can take the variety of moves and abilities tied to the one weapon in Sekiro, will be cool if they can apply that to all the other weapons as well.

oh music is easier: mc chris or basically anything nerdcore. There's still a few songs of that genre I like when relevant or because they were ctachy in some way, but yeesh, that's music you listen to alone, not something you can play when others are around.

It genuinely is really loving beautiful.

I'm wondering about the scale of the world. From the trailer I got the impression that it's open and explorable but not a drastically huge space. More Zelda than Witcher. At least I hope so.



I don't agree with it, it's just that gamers have incurably broken brains.
