His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
Can't wait for more Dank Souls lashing.

He oversaw some of it, but he wasn't directly involved, no. It's called "B Team" for a reason, and while they did improve some mechanics a LOT (as a sequel should), the huge complaint is lack of intricate maps, bosses, and atmosphere.


I remember Yahtzee saying that his main thing was that where DS1 bosses look like something from the Lovecraft mythos, DS2 bosses were just "dudes in armour". Is this accurate?

You can pretty much tell it's Miyazaki if it has a ton if lovecraftian elements.

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.

Not really. There are several big armored bosses in DkS 2 but there are also several others that are fucked-up abominations (Najka, Freja, Rotten, all the demons, etc.). There are more Lovecraft-esque bosses in the first game, but DkS 2 is more about fighting demons and lords, so they fit the theme, and all the bosses feel adequately unique.

Ok.

ZP is prone to exaggeration, so I was guessing it would be so here.

Not really. DS2 has more knight / "dudes in armor" type of enemies, but that's from everything there is to the game. It would be like saying that DS1 is just "rehashed demons" because you have Asylum, Firesage, Stray and such. DS2 has its Dragonriders, Mirror Knight and Pursuers but there's also the Chariot, Giants, Gargoyles, Rats, Manscorpions, mutated spiders, human-faced frogs, Medusa-like snake humans, Dragons and Sabertooths. I do think there's a slightly disproportionally large amount of knights in the game, but DS2 still has a very varied and wide array of bosses that goeswell beyond that. And either way, some of the "dude in armor" bosses are actually really well done.

You also have to keep in mind that Scholar of the First Sin has almost twice as many bosses as DS1 + DLC does, so just because it has more knights in armor than DS1 did does not mean that it's nothing but that.

which also why blood borne is one of the best games ever made
I think Dark Souls 1 easily eclipses it. Dark Souls 2 even took way more of my hours than BB ever did.

yes

You can pretty much tell it's Miyazaki if it has a ton if lovecraftian elements.
What? No, that was from Bloodborne you morons. Dark Souls 1 had Berserk written all over it. You can tell it's Miyazaki's Dark Souls if it's literally Berserk Souls.

MORONS!!!!!!!!

Nah I honestly don't know much about Lovecraftian stuff. I do know Bloodborne is a giant love letter to it though, just like Dragons Dogma is a giant love letter to Berserk.

But yeah, take a looksie at this to get what I mean.

I wonder if Verb will fumble the black fire bombs every play.
