      Don't be stupid. It would generate more revenue than most full games do.

        Problem is if they do DLC they have to pay R,R Martin royalties. Probably already on to their next game coming out in 2028

          From have always had a fairly short development time. I don't see why it would be 2028, much more likely we'll see a new Soulslike sometime in late 2024 or 2025.

            Thing is, Hidetaka Miyazaki is actually disappointed with Elden Ring. IDK if it's because of the lack of feet compared to other souls games but I can see them increasing dev time to 1up Elden Ring

              And yet Elden Ring was by far their longest development time of all games. Albeit you have to account for Coronavirus impacting it.

              Based on what? All I've heard is that he doesn't understand what secret sauce made ER successful and he doesn't want to try and replicate it. I've never heard that he's disappointed in it.

              I doubt it was a fairly substantial agreement given how little GRR Martin influence there actually is on the game.

              I'd agree. He basically gave a vague backstory and that's about it. Everything that happens within the game itself is current, and it's clear the devs extrapolated a lot of the lore in things like item descriptions, etc. from the basic outline GRRM provided. I'd honestly be surprised if it wasn't a single payment.

                You can tell George had some impact with many of the major lore characters because they all their names sound alike and having similar naming conventions to Game of Thrones.

                He didn't say he was disappointed in the game, just that they didn't accomplish 100% of what they could have and that they still have room to grow. It's literally just him being humble about the game's success.

              This gay literally incapable of making a game without cutting half of it by release

              first dark souls didn't have many summons if you were playing single player
              and second one, the original not scholar version, had rather weak summons so they didn't trivialize the game like they do in DS3 and Elden Ring

              Summons always were "easy mode" and soulsgays always despised le heckin casuls.

                A summon that dies in like 5 hits before the boss is down a 3rd of its HP isn't really the same thing.
                The point is the fags that claim that the obnoxious design of enemies in new souls is hard sperg out when you just trivialize them with some simple tech that they don't agree with like bleed, ashes, poison/rot, magic, op weapon arts, shield buff... etc

          You have pulled that out of your ass, you have no idea what the agreement was between GRRM and Bamco/FROM. It might have been a one-time fee, it might have been royalties from the base game but not any DLC or other media, etc. We have no idea what their agreement entails and certainly not to the point that it might hinder development of DLC.

          Not to mention, if we ARE talking royalties, that's a percentage of sales so there's still profit for all parties.

            Actors have lawsuits with studios if they even use a clip of them from a previous season, even writers who write specific characters like how Tom Paris in Voyager was originally suppose to be a character from TNG. Copy right/intellectual property is so fucking complicated any smart company isn't going to fuck with it and I highly doubt R.R would have signed away intellectual property w/e it may be in Elden Ring.

              Dude, he was acting for-hire, this isn't a book he wrote and developed or anything. It's like someone writing stories for Marvel; they don't retain the rights to the story, Marvel does, because they were hired by Marvel for that purpose.

              GRRM has said he was hired to write the wider lore around the period 5000 years before the game starts. That's it. This isn't his IP, it's Bamco's.

              What a meme. Most enemies flinched on hit in the older titles, those that didn't were slow and predictable. Not to mention the braindead ai.
              I don't think you realize how fucking easy DeS, DS1 and DS2 are compared to the later titles.

                They kind of are. When you can just zip around and dodge and jerk the analog sticks in order to evade anything it just becomes an exercise in tedium.
                In the older games you didn't have that kind of movement. If you didn't plan your movements incredibly carefully you'd open yourself up to a boss onehitting you.
                Basically the older games were like prizefight Queensberry Rules boxing. Every single minute movement was critical and one slip up could result in cold, hard knockout.
                In the modern games you can just jerk and twist all over the place.

                They are ridiculously easy by comparison.

                You can still do that in the older games with the right builds.
                >If you didn't plan your movements incredibly carefully you'd open yourself up to a boss onehitting you.
                That’s still true of the newer games, probably even more so since the damage has crept higher and there are more roll catching attacks than before.

                I still make deliberate decisions and plan actions in the newer games, the faster pacing doesn’t change that, requiring faster reactions from the player doesn’t change that either.

                This still exists in the newer games. As an example if you build for lightrolling you can entirely dodge Malenia's Waterfowl Dance directly underneath her with no issue. You can't do that with medium rolling.

                Maliketh has an absurd amount of openings. Just stay near him. You can jump the AOE's and if you're behind him after he jumps onto the sword he will flip backwards and allow plenty of free hits. Just watch some RL1 runs or something.

                I'd rather not, I figured out every other boss on my own. To me he's unrelentingly aggressive and doesn't *feel* like he leaves any openings

                I beat him solo, melee only, before they made the content easier.

                >maliketh has 0 health, if you're aggressive he dies in 3 hits

                But that's the point, I'm not satisfied if I beat the boss by powering through the mechanics. By the end of the fight I should be able to react accordingly to every move and he's the only boss where that's not the case (Malenia I figured out but it was the unerring execution that made me impatient, EB on the other hand I beat so quickly, I regretted going 2xColossal)

                That's entirely a "you" problem. The boss objectively has extremely wide openings. If you want to figure them out yourself then feel free to, that's what I did as well, just don't complain about them not existing. My problem with the fight is he has way too little health combined with how long his openings are. I wish the second phase had an entirely new healthbar.

                I wasn't and I'm not complaining.

          what? it's the other way around. ds1 and 2 are impossible to go back to now and even 3 is just barely playable. it's actually ds1 that I would call light and floaty, where your attacks feel like you're hitting air. and in 2 you feel like you're walking on ice.

                don't remember about 2. in 3 if you press R2 while running, you do a jump attack. I can launch 1 and check out if you want.

                Nah it may be so, I misremembered.
                So I guess it was just drop attacks which could only be done if you were slightly above the opponent when you jumped otherwise there wouldn't be enough falltime to trigger the drop attack. Used to do it at the duel bridge in DS2

                the jump attacks in DS1 are completely different to any other attack that weapon can do. i don't understand what's not dedicated about that.

                DS1 does not have a dedicated jump attack

                because it doesn't have a dedicared jump button

                is that easy enough for you to understand or should i use even shorter words

                it does though. pressing forward and r2 at the same time causes your character to jump, and while jumping, attack. this combination of buttons is DEDICATED to performing this jump attack, and unless you're using some obscure definition of jump or attack, ds1 absolutely has a DEDICATED jump attack.

        It is minimalist, which is what makes me seethe. It makes me crave a subtle plot, but it's beyond subtle so it goes overboard with subtlety to the point of the game design almost seeming lazy and as if the story and game were developed not side-by-side, but in two different rooms and then assembled into one unit when they were both done.

            Sounds like a lazy way of excusing the game. Aligns well with the game design itself, so that checks out.

      Discovering the lore is part of the gameplay. You're meant to piece things together and learn more about the world through reading item descriptions and talking to NPC's until their dialogue is exhausted.

      It's just story that you have to puzzle to understand but that makes it more rewarding when you put two and two together.

        It would probably be easier to puzzle things together if puzzle piece A wasn't followed by puzzle piece B 10 hours later, which made me forget about what puzzle piece A was in the first place. And I'm not whining about how big the game is, I'm whining about that they didn't close the gaps enough for me to comprehend a coherency in the plot. Idk about schools internationally but the first thing you are taught where I'm from is that coherency is the most important thing when you're writing a story, a speech or anything like that, because if you can't get the reader or listener to stay with you, then you've failed.

        I think the intro was pretty alright, it's just that they didn't fucking go on with it through the game's progression. It's not that they don't give you 0 content either, it's just that it's spread way too thin to be able to comprehend where you're going, where you are, and where you've been in the plot. Literally Skyrim did a better job at telling you where you were.

      1. Anor Londo Archers were worse these guys can be entirely by passed.
      2. The worst enemy in the Souls franchise.
      3. Stagger him to hell otherwise its just a bunch of slow perfume attacks.
      4. Annoying if you dont have a strike weapon but manageable.
      5. Pain in the ass for melee.
      6. They have one bad attack which is their AOE omnidirectional attack (or it does straight lines I cant remember.)
      7. Once you know when their feint attacks are and their delays you can bully them like the dogs.
      8. This is just an obstacle.
      9. Horribly annoying to the point of absurdity.
      10. I actually like fighting these things but thats an unpopular opinion.

      Id say overall ER does have more annoying enemies than other games so far but theyre manageable as well depending on the circumstances. I wont excuse Revenants or Pests those are just sadism incarnate.

        Mohg is such a good boss, decently telegraphed moves yet you can get caught easily if you don't pay attention enough, forces you to watch your surroundings with the bleedfire, makes explorationlets seethe with the second phase transition and doesn't rely on constant backdash and infinite combos. And he looks sick, my favorite boss with Godfrey and Morgott.
