Looks more like a swamp to me, which is scary. Blight Town 2.0 :P

Oh, but of course. The more views the better. Also after all my talking about the souls games on here i'm sure there are a few users who will enjoy hearing me rage the f**k out when playing it blind :)

I actually like watching Let's Plays, so I'll try to watch as many as you can pump out, especially regarding this game as it is all part of a campaign to discover more about the "Soulsborne" series, which is part of an even bigger campaign of mine to play more than the types of games I like in 2016. :D

Where are you from? Just so I know what rage-voice to expect.

Great artwork and nice images.

To those not aware, EuroGamer published a Dark Souls 3 article today with a very nice interview with Hidetaka Miyazaki, where he says a lot about his and the team's philosophy when developing games. Well worth the read (link below).

EuroGamer - Dark Souls 3 and the meaning of 'utsukushi':

I really loved the part about "fan feeback" and the "team's vision". More artists, not just game developers, should learn from that. Trust in your own vision for a work more than on fan feeback/focus tests. This is one of the main reasons why Bloodborne and the Souls games are so excellent.

Yeah, if i get some views on my DkS3 playthrough and a few subs, i'll keep making more content.

Also i'm Swedish.

If you want to watch me speedrun Dark Souls 1 eith terrible audio i did a race with a buddy on twitch yesterday. No commentary for me because we had audi issues, and shit audio mixing in general but a pretty good run for me.

I just like how they took some of the visuals BB had and put it in DS3. Three things i know is blood looks more exagerated like BB, environments look much more dense and detailed and cramped with various stuff so it doesnt look empty, and visuals looks nice.

I know its different engines and all, but i wonder how TN is pulling off 60fps for Nioh but for Dark Souls 3 or even Bloodborne it can barely keep 30fps?

Is Nioh as detailed as Dark Souls III and Bloodborne? Maybe my eyes are deceiving me.

Team Ninja have always been good at aiming for 60fps, but their engine has shown it's age since 360/PS3 era, we'll get 60fps from them but they'll never push the boundaries even a little for graphics, not that I mind.

What i've seen of Nioh doesn't look as good as BB or DkS3, but at the same time, Fromsoft haven't exactly been wizards when it comes to performance in any of their games.

Well i thought Nioh looks pretty darn good and it being 60fps makes it look good too.
But tbh i dont mind the visual state Nioh is in as of now as long as they pull off 60fps since 60fps gives that smooth imagery to it as well and responsiveness you want in such games.

You can always check Nioh screenshots

To be more precise it's like swamp+forest.

Well, it's always hard to know what an area will be like from just concept art, but i'm sure it'll be full of awesome secrets and asshole traps :)

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)
