― circa1916, Saturday, 13 June 2020 01:27 (two years ago) link
Here's a question for everyone. The original Demon's Souls was released on the PS3, but skipped the PS4. All of the other Soulsborne games *did* make it to the PS4, but often with notoriously erratic performance, at least as far as video game nerds are concerned. Hence, Dark Souls gets remastered, DS2 updated/changed, or the way Dark Souls 3 later got optimized for PS4 Pro (iirc Bloodborne - the only PS exclusive - never got enhanced for Pro or changed in any way). All, iirc, were originally released at or at least aimed for 30fps, right? With 60fps an idealized goal of updates/mods/fixes and so on. So Demon's Souls is getting remade ... but only for the PS5, which is obviously more powerful than the PS3 and PS4. And yet, even with all the added power, the game will offer two modes, one that will focus on fidelity, and the other on frame rate, which implies it's still going to be pushing at the edges of the new system's capacity. The (buried) question is why is this not coming out for the PS4, which was capable of handling each of its From predecessors? What is it about this remake in particular, a remake of the *oldest* and one must assume most technologically primitive game in the series, that makes it suited to the PS5 but not the PS4? Or, for that matter, unable to provide *both* fidelity and frame rate? What makes it different from Sekiro, Bloodborne, Dark Souls et al that it needs PS5 specs (and even then an either/or sort of scenario), or is being it offered as a PS5 title just because, bypassing PS4 strategically rather than by necessity?
― Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 13 June 2020 15:52 (two years ago) link
My understanding is that it's not technical, but that Sony owns the rights to it, so From/Bandai Namco couldn't do anything with it even if they wanted to.
Seems like it wasn't necessary for Sony to pull out for PS4 because they had Bloodborne as an exclusive and plenty of From games, but now they need some juice for the PS5 (and who knows what's going on with Elden Ring).
― change display name (Jordan), Saturday, 13 June 2020 16:09 (two years ago) link
Dark Souls originally came out for PS3, right?
― change display name (Jordan), Saturday, 13 June 2020 16:23 (two years ago) link
not just sony and namco and from, atlus also supposedly had rights to it because they were the north american distributors. this had been talked about ad nauseam by souls fans for years. don't know what changed to allow this to happen or if it really just was up to sony.
anyway remasters are dumb they should do demons souls 2. probably one of the only games that could spur me to buy a ps5 before they start showing up on craigslist for $75.

That's what I meant by "strategically," that it gives PS5 an exclusive with a built in fan base to immediately attract. Of course there is no reason it could not have been released on PS4 in some form, but I'm also wondering if what gets released on PS5 even *could* be released on PS4. That is, will it represent any sort of real, noticeable advance over what's come after the original Demon's Souls? I was looking at the Bloodborne wiki, and saw this: "Miyazaki had wanted ... everything to be as detailed as possible, and felt that such a game was only possible on eighth generation hardware. This need for high-end hardware, and the fact that the PlayStation 4 was presented to the company first, was the reason the game was a PS4 exclusive, rather than a cross-generation release." By all accounts Bloodborne was a lot more stable and detailed than Dark Souls, and Dark Souls III of course took advantage of those advances. So will Demon's Souls Redux be a step beyond Bloodborne/DS3/Sekiro to take advantage of PS5? I was just surprised to see a remade old game still not be able to hit both high graphics or frame rate benchmarks at the same time, you'd think the PS5 would be able to handle that (for example, Control is reportedly already being rejiggered for the new system to take advantage of new tech to better performance).
― Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 13 June 2020 17:01 (two years ago) link
all games are released "strategically", they're products
i don't know anything about this remaster so i'll take you at your word regarding the two separate modes. the industry has prioritized fidelity over performance for decades because fidelity is what the industry decided to build video game marketing around from day 1. frame rate has always played second fiddle on consoles which are always going to have limitations. even now, 60 fps isn't really a good advertising point (a mid-range PC will always do better than that anyway) as much as it represents The Absence of Badness (30 fps), which isn't how you want to market a new console. and i imagine it doesn't really matter how much better the technology is on the ps5, consoles rarely get to the point where lowering frames doesn't allow for increased fidelity, and the industry will always go for increased fidelity when it's available. especially when marketing a new generation. the give and take between fidelity and performance isn't going away any time soon. and by the time 60 fps can truly be the new standard regardless of fidelity, studios will start aiming for 120, and the cycle begins anew.
sony/from releasing this game with two modes allows them to advertise increased fidelity, the #1 priority for a new console, while also providing comfort to the increasingly large subset of customers who reject 30 fps.
― ℺ ☽ ⋠ ⏎ (✖), Saturday, 13 June 2020 17:25 (two years ago) link
I don't think Dark Souls really had any stability issues?
And personally I don't care about frame rate, although going back and forth between Dark Souls Remastered and Dark Souls 3 was the first time I had seriously even noticed it, it takes your eyes some time to adjust going from 60 to 30 (or at least mine).
― change display name (Jordan), Saturday, 13 June 2020 18:39 (two years ago) link
Even before I played the game I knew all about Blighttown.xpost The dialectic I set up was strategic versus technology. That is, some games cannot run on some underpowered systems. Doom 2016 got ported to the Switch, but the latest Doom he is not going to the switch because the Switch can't handle it. It's not strategic.Now, the new Ori being a Microsoft exclusive, that's more strategic, because its predecessor was ported to the Switch and this one isn't, afaik not because the Switch can't handle it, but because I presume Microsoft needs what few attractive exclusives it can get.
― Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 13 June 2020 18:40 (two years ago) link
the latest doom is planned to be released on switch in the future. technology is rarely a limiting factor when there's money to be made. i don't know the story behind demon's souls being ported to ps5 instead of ps4 - the rights situation was notoriously complicated, as mentioned - but i can assure with i'd say............ 95% confidence that it was a business decision and difficulty porting to ps4 wasn't a factor.
― ℺ ☽ ⋠ ⏎ (✖), Saturday, 13 June 2020 18:57 (two years ago) link
Yeah it absolutely was a business decision. Souls is beloved and literally the only way you can play Demon’s is on PS3. It’s a minor “system seller” bump. Would be stupid to dump that on PS4 right now even though they likely totally could.
― circa1916, Saturday, 13 June 2020 19:10 (two years ago) link
lol Josh you get so caught up in the weeds with this stuff sometimes
― circa1916, Saturday, 13 June 2020 19:11 (two years ago) link
I mean, I get why it would be a business decision. But usually, as far as I can tell, initial games for a new powerful system are often there to show off the new powerful system. I was just wondering if they could possibly be tweaking this old game so much as to make its inclusion on PS5 justified as more than just a business decision, as a showcase, the same way, say, Shadow of the Colossus remake seemed designed to show off the PS4.
― Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 13 June 2020 19:21 (two years ago) link
bloodborne was pretty important in establishing ps4 as the home of big exclusives, no surprise sony wants to go back to the well xp

As for stupid to drop on PS4, I was honestly surprised that Last of Us 2 was made for end of cycle PS4, because that actually seemed like an even more conspicuous lure for PS5. That and Samurai Ghosts.

Just saying, I understand there have been delays, but we are so close to the launch of the new system and those two games seem so massively high profile you think they'd just wait a couple of more months. but I really have no idea why these companies do what they do when they do it.

i guess i don't see the same dynamic you're seeing here
it might help to stop thinking about consoles entirely and imagine what a remastered demon's souls would look and perform like on a new high-end PC. porting from PC to ps4 or ps5 would be a downgrade in both cases - it would simply be more of a downgrade going to ps4, as the game would have to be further optimized to run on it, and it would have to be optimized even further to run at 60fps. publishers generally want their games to release with the best fidelity available on whichever platform they're releasing on. they are going to attempt to make the game as flashy and modern as they can on the ps5 because the business decision was made to port it to ps5. i might be talking in circles, sorry idk
i don't think SOTC was designed specifically to show off ps4 - it released 5 years after the ps4 launched and the system had already won the war by then. it was released for the same reason as every other ps4 game by that point
― ℺ ☽ ⋠ ⏎ (✖), Saturday, 13 June 2020 19:40 (two years ago) link
TLOU2 is releasing on ps4 because it's going to make a lot of money for sony that way and launch titles aren't actually important for most consoles. it'll probably get remastered and released for ps5 in a couple years when there's enough of an install base for it to make a lot of money again. people who bought it on ps4 will buy it again on ps5 because if a game is big enough the video game hype cycle can sell anything.

So why not do that with Demon's Souls, then?
― Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 13 June 2020 19:47 (two years ago) link

I just assume they want to pull in Souls fans with a system-seller like they did with Bloodborne on PS4.

Watching some videos now, still find it hard to get excited about this. I don't really care about graphics (the original still looks fine to me), and it sounds like the mechanics are largely unchanged. I'm sure it would be cool if I hadn't played it already (and had a PS5, lol).

Playing the re-make on PS5 and it’s spectacular. Looks gorgeous, sounds and feels great, A+ production all around. Serious props to Bluepoint, immaculate, diligent work. I might struggle playing a From game at less than 60 FPS after this, the pleasure of that smoothness can’t be overstated.Beyond that, the game just fucking holds up. I’ve always contended that Demon’s and Dark Souls 1 were the peak, but wondered if that was some rose tinted glasses thing. I don’t think it is, those games had a pace and sense of place that was kind of lost along the way.

I'm playing the remake. Never played the original but I love everything about this. I think I prefer it to Dark Souls and Bloodborne - it's just so perfectly satisfying.
I don't know what happened to Ostravo (is that his name?) I resuced him from 1-1 but he never turned up in 1-2 after I killed Phalanx. Bit annoying!

Yep, did the first bit but he never appeared where he was meant to in 1-2 The Lord's Path. No biggie, this sort of thing happens a lot in Souls games. Maybe he got killed on his way there or something.
The upgrade system is pretty complicated, but I'm just about getting my head around it. Despite upgrading my Falchion to +5 I realised I'd be better off using the Crescent Falchion as it deals magic damage, so I spent a while on Storm of Shrines just farming skeletons (I completed 4-1 early) and then buying stones from the merchant at the end and upgrading them with Blacksmith Ed. It's a lot to keep track of, which geezer does what, and I'm glad they kind of centralised it all in Elden Ring. Still, it's a challenge in itself to work all this stuff out yourself
― Urbandn hope all ye who enter here (dog latin), Wednesday, 21 December 2022 08:47 (one month ago) link
Yeah, hence my "math is hard" comment on the "Armored Core" thread. Even after hundreds of hours of the Souls etc. games, at my best and most experienced I often feel like I am just barely grasping the mechanics, let alone the plots, and that's even while generally following guides. Some of the Souls nerds, they get so granular with the builds, but for me (as a one and done player) I always looked at the stats as means to an end. This boss is weak to fire, and in order to use fire you need x points in y attribute while wearing z helmet. Thus, boost those two stats and find the helmet to help with the boss.
I'm still slotting this remake in for winter gaming, along with TLOU2, though whether or not I start in on The Witcher 3 first will possibly impact my loose schedule.
― Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 21 December 2022 14:52 (one month ago) link
Really loving this game. Definitely my favourite below Elden Ring. I've done the first level of each Archstone now and I'm currently trying to beat the Flamelurker.
Impressed at how well balanced this game is.
Dark Souls 1 has so much going for it but seems especially cruel in the way you can't fast travel from bonfires, currently landing me in Blightown with a rusty main sword.
Bloodborne, too, is great but also a bit fiddlesome, sprawling and kind of linear in a way.
Demon's just seems to get the difficulty juuust right. It's challenging, I'm always having to think very hard, there are some really tough parts, but I never feel stuck. I also enjoy the way the bosses so far haven't been tooooo difficult, which is useful as there's often a long run to precede them.

I know so little about "Demons Souls" that literally nothing in that post rings a bell. Psyched to dive in, eventually.

Oh blimey I've played so much of this now, I'm surprised to find I'm getting to the last stretch already.
My friend got this at the start of the weekend and she's already beaten the Tower Knight and Armoured Spider. It took me much longer to get that far
