The brine is really a crap mechanic and needs to go, and instead they have to add actual sea monsters. If you try to get to another location early by boat, you're going to have to fight a leviathan in some areas, or just have to deal with navigating through or around maelstroms and such. Could add a whole other fun element to water treks that have been sorely overlooked in every sandbox game this generation.
Shit, at least San Andreas actually let you dive under. :\ Submarines? Seriously, potential up in smoke.
Lol, I agree in so many ways. Not being able to swim in any open world game is the BIGGEST pet peeve of mine. I understand that the game is big enough as it is.. But just do the invisible wall, seriously. I'd rather swim for 5 minutes and suddenly not be able to swim further than not being able to swim at all. It's just irritating.
Also I see a lot of people talking about online features. I think it'd be cool and all, I have no doubt about that. However I feel like the pawn system is more than enough. Games like Dark Souls that have heavy online influence are always ruined by people who glitch, cheat and magically have every single item in the game over night. Personally I think they shouldn't add an online feature unless it's very minor. Such as being able to meet with other players via the rift perhaps, as well as their pawns. Then you could showcase your characters, possibly trade (even if only a limited amount) and not be stripped of the capability to pause your game when wandering the countryside. Because of course.. If it has a cooperative element such as being able to actually summon other people, you're not going to be able to just pause and walk away from the game for x amount of time. So, maybe I'm the only one who feels this way but.. I think NOT having an online capability is part of what made me love Skyrim so much, and part of what's making me love DD so much. Because you can do it all in your own time, your own way, and not feel like you're hauling someone else's ass along and pissing them off with all your mistakes. Or at least that's how I felt in Dark Souls xD. When I started out my phantoms would do 90% of the work for me and I was like <,< >,> I could have helped if you wanted ? Or at least TRIED to help D:

I wanna know if it will be on 360 or the next generation of consoles.

Needs for sequel: ability to to refuse, pay or bribe for crimes, and a mount(my idea): defeat a drake or wyvern or (add): sabertooths, and they tell you "dont kill me, you are strong allow me to be your guide until my timly or untimly death". Armor: chimeric half plate? Wtf happened to the full plate? Add all armors you make a half plate make a full plate. Dont make unfinished sets(dragonleather, red dragon scale, etc.) Weapons and enchantments: go skyrim for a second, but add the ability to enchant anything combat type with any enchantment like on morrowind. Co-op: DD1 is great but imagine if two arisen from different 360s could be in the same world. I have more ideas but thats enough for now.

This pleases me greatly. More is good. And more with coop makes me giddy thinking about it.
Does Capcom even release PC games? I'm sorely in need of more PC know-how, but I've never heard of any of their major franchises looks towards the PC as their core dev.
If you can call those buggy, non updated, non supported ports pc games...
Id love a larger world with more rpg elements. The ability to have a stats screen to actually change your pawns personality (including a functional speech rate modifier) better story and sidequests and more varied monsters and locations. And of course more massive creatures the size of the dragon (imagine a golem that big)
If itsuno isnt directing this game again then i wont hold my breath on a better sequel.

I cannot wait and I hope they don't change much, I mean I had so much fun playing this game. I do hope they would look at this forum as there have been some brilliant ideas going around. i'm sure Capcom will do a great job, they did with this one, I mean it blew my expectations.
