From Software

With the immense success of From Software over the past decade, I was wondering what Ganker thought of their back catalogue?

The only game I played was Eternal Ring for PS2 and I admittedly hated it and probably still would if I tried it again (although maybe less so).

    Souls stuff wasn't even that popular at first, DeS got quite a few harsh reviews, something like 25/40 from Famitsu for example. Only thanks to Namco's "if you don't like this, you are not hardcore" marketing and people began to worship From

      That's because DeS is a Playstation exclusive, the cult hype around it is responsible for Souls' later success because it gave a lot of people that didn't have PS3s high expectations for Dark Souls. There was even that one Sony exec that said Demon's Souls was a horrible game, one of the worst he played until Dark Souls got popular then he suddenly started to praise the series for the reasons he criticized it for in the first place.

            >Miyazaki started there as a coder in 2004. After working on the Armored Core robot-combat series, he heard about a game in development elsewhere in the studio. “Demon’s Souls wasn’t doing well,” he says. “The project had problems and the team had been unable to create a compelling prototype. But when I heard it was a fantasy-action role-playing game, I was excited. I figured if I could find a way to take control of the game, I could turn it into anything I wanted. Best of all, if my ideas failed, nobody would care – it was already a failure.”

        I don't agree, the first King's Field is a rough, tedious, and meandering game to play. I agree with the other guy, good ideas but insufficient execution, there's enough value to gleam in it that it had some appeal, that it was worth making sequels, but there's pretty good reasons why they were never runaway hits.

        >the studio that greenlit this is now heralded as the best developer ever because of some meme games where you clobber zombies by mashing the R button for 30 hours

        The first game of a bunch of office software programmers on the Playstation in 1994 isn't actually that great to look at? It's a primitive depiction, and I'm not gonna say that King's Field is a real classic, because it's not, reviews were very mixed at the time, lots of people thought it was no good, but this was a first person 3D game with an open world, on console, in 1994, so it stood out, especially being one of the Playstation's launch titles, meaning it got to be one of the few choices available at first.
        That last part damns it with faint praise, but there's enough which is compelling about it that there were people interested in sequels which turned out to indeed be better. Like so many other Japanese games, it was influenced by the Wizardry series, which was well liked by Japanese nerds, so King's Field was already vying for some of that audience, evidently appealing enough to them that they were willing to give them another shot.

        They do get better with time, the later games are remembered more fondly for a reason, but mind also that Demon's Souls caught fire BECAUSE the formula saw a number of alterations to make it much better and much more appealing. It wasn't just King's Field but with 2009 graphics, it's a more ambitious and well thought out game. There's plenty of devs of great titles who have far more embarrassing shit in their early careers.

        That barely excuses it

        It doesn't, but it explains how they got their foot in the door. Sometimes you get advantageous opportunities.

        Yeah this is actually true, I've seen "people" randomly posting King's Field to shit on PSX in Ocarina of Time threads more than once

        I am sorry to tell you but you are wrong with everything you say. Without directors there is no vision or concept and the game ends up as a pile of shallow-, unoriginal- and boringly ordinary ideas.

        Of course the director doesn't do everything by themselves, but what they do, is to DIRECT, hence the name, their job is to steer the game in the desired DIRECTION, and this isn't a trivial aspect. The director being good or bad can vastly change the outcome of a game.

        Kings Field I and II (the ones that got localized to the US, which are actually II and III) are genuinely great. Especially II/III.

    King's Field Ancient City is excellent, its just not for everyone. Personally i dont mind the molasses movement/turning speed. Its just a different style of game that takes some getting used to. The level design is just so great, it feels so satisfying descending into the Ancient City and exploring all the nooks and crannies and looping paths. And the visuals, atmosphere, and music are top-notch.

    I was hoping for a similar experience from Shadow Tower Abyss, but sadly the level design is heavily simplified. The game is front-loaded, the first few areas make you think it's going to look and play amazingly, but after that pretty much every aspect devolves quickly. Simple linear levels, boring visuals, unbalanced combat, endless enemy reskins, etc.

    I played Ancient City for the first time like a year ago, and I wouldn't say I enjoyed it but there was one aspect of the game that really stuck with me.
    The game mentally engaged me in a way that very few games. I actually felt like I had to use my brain when playing this game. Holding onto a mental map of places I've been and characters I've seen. Keeping in mind things that I need to do and where to go next. It actually felt like I had to figure things out, and get a grip on this world that I've been thrust into, using my own mind and not some faggy journal entry or NPC telling me what to do. Also, the atmosphere is tremendous and the game really manages to impress it's mood/feeling onto you.
    That being said, the game did start to drag on at about the half way point for me, and I had some frustrations with it so I wouldn't say I liked the game but it was a worthwhile experience.

      The slow movement makes you want to throw the controller to the wall early on but once you get used to it there is a great game to explore. The atmosphere is a very bleak fantasy but quite engrossing and the map is very well designed, the way you go to varied zones and end up getting to different levels of the central area is great.

I didn't like it back then but recently beat it right before Elden Ring (I thought there might be some hearkening back to Eternal possibly I didn't want to miss). I actually enjoyed Elden Ring well enough and I definitely felt like I was playing a game in the lineage of the Souls games. I think the ring system was a really neat idea (left hand attribute rings and physical attack, right hand active spells) but it could be much more polished in a current gen game with more impressive range of abilities and better graphics.

    Does Kings Field (2) have known technical issues? I started replaying it and had 2 random crashes while loading new areas and one sound bug and another where only half of a 2 sided door loaded and nothing beyond it had loaded properly. Its probably just my disc being janked up, but i wouldnt put it past having problems naturally.

      I don't remember it happening in King's Field but the same thing happened to me a lot when I played Shadow Tower recently, so it's possible

    I loved kings field 1 on the ps1. There is no map, so I kind of rendered it all in my mind. Loved it. It's old and janky, but was an absolute blast. It's definitely from, they have a really particular vibe about them. Armored core 1 was great as well, just played that a couple of weeks ago. Playan a non retro game atm, but once I finish that I'll go for kings field 2. I didn't like how it was more 2d feeling when I played it last year, but I'll give it another shot.

    Also, the first kings field did fast travel better than any other game I have ever played. It's a shame from didn't use it again (that I know of)

    I grew up on the Armored Core series and that will always be From Software for me. Also really enjoyed 3D Dot Game Heroes back on the PS3 - great meta sense of humor and also a fun little Zelda tribute. I have Eternal Ring and some Kings Field games but never tried them.

    Quick embarassing question: in King's Field IV, there's a huge tower connected to a multitude of bridges on every floor and surrounded by a body of water.
    On the top floor of this door there's a wall/door lighted with candles. From what I recall, I needed something to open it, but I never figured out what. Any idea?
    Sorry for the foggy memories, it was 10 years ago.

      It actually never opens. I wonder if there is a way to clip the camera through, I bet it was originally going to have a secret behind it if you got all of the magic...everyone asks or wonders if you can do anything with it.

    Only have played Kings Field IV and its fantastic. The only bad part is how slow it starts so Im greatful that From's newer games exist to motivate me to push through it, the first hour or two is frustrating and awful but once youre past that it reminds me a lot of Metroid Prime. Really good game and makes me happy Fromsoft eventually got their time to shine later on, since all their games before Dark Souls only had niche sales at best.

      I played King's Field 1-3 then played 4 and almost quit because of how slow it plays, it's the slowest one in the series and consistent improvement the series showed I thought had failed this time but thank god I persevered because it's clearly the best designed one in the series and the atmosphere is fantastic.

    The first Shadow Tower game is really underrated.
    Really interesting mix of survival horror resource management and shitty dungeon crawling.

    I liked this game when I played it on the PS4. Unless I'm remembering wrong, the movement was a lot slower in the NA PS2 release but I heard the Japanese version had some item that increased movement speed and it was added as the default movement speed in the PS4 version.

    Not that it was accused of being the most modern franchise around in the late 00s, but it's still honestly amazing how close Armored Core 1 is to Armored Core 4 for a 22fps PS1 action game. Like the first game in particular is a bit too heavy on corridor shooting jank but when you get out in the open that game has unfathomably better realized movement and combat than crap ass modern robot games like Daemon ex Machina or Gundam Battle Operation.

      First gen AC is still incredibly fresh, most fun I've ever had using a d-pad and shoulder buttons.

      It helps that it has the lightest ACs in any of the old style games. I went 1>3>LR recently and they get slower with every installment.

      They're not worthless, but the first one especially is rough and slow, like Ultima Underworld with half the production value and half as good pacing.
