based and rip
I always play female though
>>559065619Miura didn't invent the giant fantasy tree, that shit has existed forever
>>559065619>open world at night is more dangerous because the demons come to get youYES
>>559065852>Miyazaki is known for referencing Berzerk time and time again in souls games>Does it again>"No it's not a Berzerk reference!"
>>559065954So now he's not just stealing from berserk, but Capcom? What a hack.
>>559065619so he is a hack?
>>559065619Nobody cares about your little manga.
>>559065852>M-Miura didn't invent weird horse things, those existed forevercope Miyazaki fag
And that's a good thing.
OMG IS THAT A BERSERK REFERENCE?!
Is the author for Berserk still dead?
>>559069491No, wished him back yesterday
>>559069006>Berserk invented wolf helmets
Berserk is fuckiung cringe
Actualy looking pretty good.
>>559069623Thank you goku.
>>559069887 Holy shit.
>>559069887>implying its a helmetwatch the fucking trailer
>>559070029You're still banned.
>>559065668>Yggdrasil is a berserk reference nowWhoah
>>559070834Berserk is iconic. Especially with the nips. No one cares about we wuz vikangz garbage anymore.
>>559070012Doesnt that make it less of a berserk reference then.
why is dark souls dude so obsessed with berserk
>>559071690It's really cool homegrown dark fantasy, obviously that's something Miyazaki is into or he'd have made different games.
>>559071628>Especially with the nipsHow would you know?>No one cares about VikingsIt's super popular in White countries judging by all the games and TV shows, literally every Master Piece movie like LOTR is inspired by Viking CultureThe best "Japanese" Anime is inspired by Viking Culture.You are nothing, a copycat fat
>>559071690Berserk fans just said everything was a berserk reference back in the day because of a few references here and there to try and advertise the work so miura would work on it. Now there's just fags repeating the same thing even though miura is gone.
>>559071971Is Berserk referencing the new Jojo referencing?
Dark Souls and even King's Field has always been Berserk
>>559065668it looks a million times cooler in berserk
>the company that made three games inspired by Berserk made another game inspired by Berserk wow say it isn't so
>open world with day and night cycle>huh you didnt kill 3 enemies at this specific spot at this specific hour? too bad, you locked yourself out of entire NPC questline lol! better luck next time
Miyazaki must have felt Miura's death, he seems to be a great fan. To be honest, me too, fuck im still sad we will never see Berserk ending, japs are too stuborn to continue.
>>559065619Good. I’m curious to see if this story completes or it will claim it’s second life (George).
SIMPSONS DID IT
>>559065619And that's why it's going to be good .
>>559072919DId you not know that berserk is the first dark fantasy medieval work? It has no references in it and does not riff off of any existing themes.
>>559072497It's clearly a visual reference to Berserk, even if it's meant to be a form of Yggdrasil
>>559073032there are literally redrawn parts from Hieronymous Bach's Garden of Earthly Delights in Berserk among other referential things
>>559065852>Miura didn't invent the giant fantasy tree, that shit has existed foreverShow us where. No, seriously, anyone?
>>559072432Anyone else continuing it would be nothing more than fanfiction
>>559071646No, Guts' schizo complex makes him larp as a wolf in his head, the position the Werewolf, Artorias and Gael take is completely inspired by Guts using the Berserker armor.The armor makes him act as an animal too.
>>559065668>Berserk made YggdrasilEvery year, my contempt for Fromfags increases ever more.
>>559071460The mask is a stretch, torture metal masks have been used throughout history and literary works long before Griffith.
>>559073238You're so fucking retarded, guts entire wolf form is a reference to the idea of being a wild dog of war. It's a fucking archetype, literally a Berserker.
>>559066215Like two thirds at least of nip fantasy involves yggdrasil or something similar. They fucking love it.
>>559073192Hell Guts himself is inspired by western action actors like Arnold Schwarzenegger, according to Miura himself
>>559073270yeah I don't think it's Fromfags trying to say Miyazaki is ripping off Berserk, that's not exactly praise, dumbass
>>559073516You will never actually go through something in life to brag about.
>>559071460holy fuck did From seriously rip off HARRY POTTER?
>>559065619What kind of faggot denies the heavy references to Berserk and what's worse what kind of faggot is against them? Berserks is the OG Mr Big Dick Tracy, everyone should be ripping off Berserk.
>>559065852BERSERK gave us everything you double nigger
>>559071940>The best "Japanese" Anime is inspired by Viking Culture.Vinland saga?
>>559073867Is this a joke? It was totally forgettable and generic
Miura is dead.Cope seethe dilate
>>559073380They've been used much but this isn't a stretch at all.
>>559071940>The best "Japanese" Anime is inspired by Viking Culture.One Piece?
>>559073867this guy gets it
>>559073867Berserk means Nordic warrior you absolute subhuman
>>559073636Mentally ill and obsessed
>>559073972Oh yeah I remember that when guts was a child he had to use a normal sword despite being a child. When you think about it every longsword in dark souls is a reference to berserk.
>>559073380I'm almost positive there's gonna be a torture dungeon part in the game and some crazy fucker is going to post the panels from the Mozgus arc thinking he's cleaver
>>559071940>The best "Japanese" Anime is inspired by Viking Culture.Anon, just because they mention Odin every 20 episodes doesn't mean it's inspired by Viking Culture.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I'M GOING BERSERK
>>559074103But we don't play as a child you scathing retard.
>>559074301>AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I'M GOING BERSERK>a white guy
>>559074060it's a specific type of Nordic warrior, it's not that broad
>>559074335Im sure not every enemy that has that mask is griffith as well. Or a king turned god.
>>559074378Why would you out yourself as a nigger?

>>559074574Yes. He did. Now deal with it.

>>559074779Good goy. Good nord cuck.
>>559074758That’s a Roman vexillarius
>>559074907Oh no you see I'm actually japanese.

>>559074616Nice avatar of yourself I guess.
>>559074956No you're not nord cuck. Try again.
>>559075014Given the illiteracy for media on display here I would have to imagine such fervor were fueled by quite a seething rage.
>>559074870>point out obvious reference>NOOOOOOO ITS NOT ITS NOT MIURA DIDNT INVENT THAT
>>559075103No you see. Uh.... ching chong nip nong Miura was a retard that unironically worked himself to death because he was too stupid to understand what his own health was from the constant mental larp he had to immerse himself in to pull off such brilliant writing.
>>559075130This. If you post shit like ">miura invented x" when meme arrowing someone it's either bait, which retards are falling for, or someone who is an actual room temp iq nigger man.
>>559069006God I hope that's a woman. Lady werewolf knight sounds like a god tier waifur
@559075248>dude! X person everyone loved die! Let's make fun of him for easy (you)s!Not gonna work for me. Gotta be 18+ to post here.
>>559074806>shirtSource? Nobody knows what "serk" really means from what I've read.
>>559075416I know it's berserk tradition to farm for (you)s by making shitty jpegs linking the most absurd shit but you don't have to think even that is something someone's trying to rip off from you.
This isn't the first time there's been a giant tree in the middle of a souls game's map.
>>559073867>Vinland SagaGoes to shit with the farm arcDrop it as soon as Askeladd dies
>we are finally getting open world berserk kinothank you miyazaki
>>559072497I ain't seeing any shiny trees of light filling the sky in these example images. The idea of Yggdrasil obviously exists in many, many different stories, but this particular depiction is very clearly influenced by Berserk.
>literally post roar of astral world setting but not reallyThank you based miyazaki
>>559075602Farm arc was kino, goes to shit in the war arc with the dumbass crossbow lady and the tranny.
>>559075487>Nobody knows what "serk" really means from what I've read.People who are fluent in old Norse all say serkr means coat or shirt. I’ve never really seen this contradicted anywhere.The only contentious part about the word is the “berr” part, because it could either mean bare or bear, both of which would kind of make sense.I say it’s bear because there’s a wolf version of berserkers (ulfheidnar), so there seems to be some connection to wild, vicious animals with these types of warriors.
>>559073990Kinda weird everyone acting like I'm retarded for mentioning one of the few manga/anime actually based on Norse culture. I guess superficial word association is enough for most retards on this board.
>>559072497>Both Crystal like Yggdrasils>Both emit light>Both surrounded by cloudy destroyed landscapeTrue, definitely not a Berserk reference, not like Miyazaki created a whole franchise full of Berserk references or anything.
>>559075924I reclaimed my (you)! :3
>>559068130Shit bros I just realized I will never see my gf Farnese again.Why did you have to leave us so soon Miura...?
>>559075992Maybe if the transition was more gradual, but as it was, it's way too sudden.Suddenly you are reading a completely different manga, with a drastically different mc, in a drastically different setting. All the change happens off screen, and he never goes back to being like he was too. Compare this to Vagabond's farm arc, where a similar arc is well integrated into the story, and results in character development, rather than being a post factum justification of one.
>>559076080Every single berserk/from thread is like this. It doesn't matter.
Berserk is shit. It's so obvious he was sick of it but the bank he was making from shit taste fags just made him autistically change the focus and tone of the series rather than just end it and work on new projects. Also, every design in it is ripped off or borrowed from something and not just in an "inspired by" way--Phantom of the Paradise, Hellraiser, Mars Attacks, etc. Dude was a hack and I'm glad he's fucking dead.
>>559076957Here's your (You), since you are so desperate.
>>559077109I'm sorry your brain is so damaged your sense of taste is broken. It's nobody's fault your mom's womb was faulty, always remember that!
>>559072432>Miura's deathMade me check ;_; .
>>559065619>Miyazaki will never stop trying to shove Berserk down people's throats
>>559065619well yggdrasil or the mother tree has always been a thing
OOOOOH ELDEN RING(ED CITY)
>>559076957Second pity (You)
>>559072432He didnt manage to wrap the things up in manga for 30 (THIRTY) years. You get what you fucking deserve.
>muh yggdrasil>muh giant tree isn't an inventionShow me another piece of media where said "world tree" is ghostly, illuminated, massive and is casting god rays on the ruins of a medieval fantasy world.
Since from is ripping off nord shit where's the Nordic wenches?
>>559065619>Elden ring is literally Berserkliterally dead in the water? yeah that makes sense.
>berserk owns trees
Is sorcery berserk in reality? Miyazaki said the roots themselves come from it while he occasionally lifts from berserk in the case of wheel skeletons etc.
>>559078949Oi mate looks like the old lady been eatin' too much fish n chips lately
>>559078949They have that Valkyrie warrior lady boss who grabs and impales you.
>>559065852The glowing tree is very Berseky tho.
Miura dying is the best marketing Elden Ring could have gotten.
So is Berserk the Jap version of LOTR where all the fantasy authors copy it?
>>559079513That's what people want to claim. In some cases however there are straight rips of the line of intrigue that berserk goes down like black clover and some other shit I can't remember.
>>559078949Sauce me that shit right now brother
>>559078743Did you mom's faulty womb not give you the ability to form arguments as well? Poor anon. She really shouldn't have taken all that daily horse cock.
>game in a series well known for drawing heavy inspiration from berserk draws more inspiration from berserkWOOOOOWWW
>>559073867vinland is complete garbage from start to presenthis fucking dad knew kung fu for whatever reason lmaosuch a fucking shitshow from chapter 1 ever since
>>559079656Not nearly on the same level, but it's pretty influential nonetheless.
>Miura died and I didn't have a cluewake me up when the world ends
>>559078821To be fair, holy/divine things in Norse mythology are supposed to be blindingly bright and glowy, so it’s not too much of a stretch to represent Yggdrasil like that.
>>559080125>Miura invented the Norse
>>559080206More like miura invented the noose amiright?
>>559078512>implying he needs to shove when I will just open my mouth
>Miura died before finishing Berserk>GRRM will die before finishing Elden Ring
>>559065619Miura's making tran*es seethe even after his death, based based based.

Didn’t the latest Assassin’s Creed do a Yggdrasil thing also with GodDesmond?
>>559065619>Is an unrepentant turbo-autist.
Reminder Muira gave no shits about Dark Souls or Miyazaki's work while Miayzaki can't stop rehashing Demon's Souls and straight up stealing shit from Berserk.
>/v/ "discovers" that most fantasy is based on Anglo-Saxon lore>/v/ "discovers" that Elden Ring is Dark Souls with horsesYou guys got any more observations?
>>559065619Memes aside is George R.R Martin is the only selling point of this game? I mean the in game engine looks jagged as fuck for a next gen game
>>559084269>stop focusing on Eurasian cultures! Look, retarded brown people also had superficially similar pagan beliefs!!You’re one to talk about cringe, pal.
WHAT THE FUCK?MIYAZAKI IS REFERENCING ATTACK ON TITAN??
>>559085321Yeah le heckin based vakangz invented trees, you sure showed me bro.
>All From Software games are basicaly BerserkWe've known that forever. My only hope is that the coons at least have the decency of giving Miura a fat sack of cash before he passed away. Least they could do since they ended the dancing around and made a proper Berserk game, just a barrage of ripoffs.
>>559075601The Old One too. Though its horizontal.

>>559085464They didn’t invent trees, but they did invent the only mythical one people give a shit about.
>>559084789miura didn't give a shit about video games besides idolshit so what's your point? maybe if he stopped jerking off to idolmolester he would have finished berserk before he died
>>559084789>stealing shit from Berserk.A homage is still a homage, even if the consistency does raise some eyebrows.
>>559065619The initial leaks had me worried, i thought we weren't even getting anything close to dark fantasy/souls So I'm happy about it, it strikes a nice balance.
Yggdrasil wank is in tons of JRPGs, specifically Dragon Quest. Such a thing might have a common origin in Indo-European culture, since there is a similarity in Vedic religions to the holy Mountain Meru.
>>559086018>Miura stated that he did not see dark fantasy as a genre in itself, but rather as an equivalent of general fantasy. He commented that outside of Japan the big works of fantasy, like The Lord of the Rings, contain dark elements, and in Japan, the fantasy genre was popularized by video games like Dragon Quest, which were aimed at children, and therefore, expurgated the dark elements, but since he received the influence from novels before that of these games, Miura "naturally turned to dark fantasy".
>>559065619I hope there's a good way to make a somewhat accurate Gatts build in Else Ring
>>559086018You dumbass. Miyazaki cites LOTR books and the concept art from the films as part of the Souls development. You think GRRM and the game called Elden RING is oblivious to LOTR?
>>559086312Yes and? I know about three kingdoms but I never read that shit.
>>559069006no its an artorias reference
>>559086018Both Berserk and Souls games draw off LOTR you fucking idiot
>>559086531I cite wikipedia articles all the time and nobody questions me what's your point?
>>559086663Show me a single thing in dark souls that is a lotr reference and no, dragons don't count.
>>559086683>I'm retarded, what's your point?

>>559065619Wow they both have a tree, this must be because of the Jews
>>559086789You got any actual arguments or are you just gonna keep throwing ad homies?
That's not a tree in berserk anon
>>559086908Typical stupid frog poster.
>>559086018Japs love Dragon Quest, which is derivative of Wizardry, which is derivative of DnD, which is derivative of LotR. Tolkien wins again, baby
>>559087131>dragons questThat has nothing to do with this thread.
Where is the motherfucking JOJO reference?
Everyday, this board becomes a little worse.
>>559087158Nice argument r*tard.
>>559087213That has everything to do with the statement that japs have never read lotr which is blatantly false on its own
>>559086907Your assertion is "he is lying", which is just meaningless conjecture. It's not even an argument, it's just denial/obfuscation.>>559086780What would you accept as a reference? Themes? Imagery? Explain.

>>559087480>your posts are bait>durrr no>yes they are>haha just kidding got ya
>>559069491He was reborn today during the pseudo eclipse
Why do people always get so upset about things being referenced or inspirations? Is it just kikes and Americans with their "muh ip laws" thinking everything is I'll intended and theft?
If it's not Yggdrasil I'm not buying it
>>559086969I know what you are referring to, and it may not have started life as a plant, but I assure you that it is well rooted now.
>>559079513That's more the Wizardry games, but yeah, for dark fantasy, pretty much.
>>559087842Muh originality (not applicable for anime titties and guns).
I COMMAND THEE, KNEEL
>>559065619Berserkfags need to die just like Miura.
>>559088072Erdtree means earth/world tree so yeah, it’s definitely at least a reference to it.

>>559091959and you don't know anything
Miyazaki can rip off as much Berserk as he wants. It's not like Miura can use the ideas anymore.
>>559087131What was the fantasy genre like before Tolkien?
IS THAT A BERSERK REFERENCEYES IT IS
>It's the "Miura invented trees" episode again
>>559087389The flooded New Londo concept was practically lifted from the scene where the dead warriors who betrayed Isildur were convinced to give aid to lift their curse.
>>559065619wasn't miyazaki doing divine tree shit in Sekiro though?
>>559073867>Vinland saga?it will be the best japanese anime inspired by viking culture when we get farmland
>>559086018Lmao, (You) absolute retard.
I would like a total dickhead elf like Thranduil in a Souls game, the dumbass was obsessed so he'd fit well in the cast of a Miyazaki game.
>>559081556>miyazaki will finish both
the first dark souls got me into Berserk. Glad to see we're still getting references, it's just such a timeless work of art.I bet Miyasaki will even build a monument honoring Miura in this one.
>>559069491It still hasn't hit me. How do you die at 54? That's boomer old, not elderly old.
>>559092074Good! I love Berserk and making people on 4chan seethe with my favorite franchise is fun. I will deliberately call anything a Berserk reference and you will he angry about it.

>>559065619berserk minus the soul
>>559093707Don't Anon. The creator died so you'll never get a satisfying ending. :(
>>559065619That deformed midget Miyazaki hasn't had one creative thought in his entire life. What retards don't know: From ALWAYS made Souls games with King's Field and he only joined them in like 2009, and all Demon's Souls basically added to the formula is Zelda's Z-targeting Overrated trash games that have every single good thing stolen from another IP.
>>559098812Retard, visually it's the same or very similar. The inspiration is obvious. No one in Japan cares about Tolkek and his meme world. The two trees weren't in LotR or any other visual medium.
SAY IT AFTER MEBERSERK INVENTED TREES
>>559065668He should have had the honor to cancel this shitty Souls rehash when the Berserk guy died. I hate From Shitware so much. This has nothing to do with inspiration
>>559071940>LOTR is inspired by Viking Cultureshut up nordcuck
>>559098979You're retarded if you think they look even remotely similar. Berserk "tree" has two fucking legs, tentacles instead of branches and no leaves. Only a blind or a fool would mistake that tentacle monster for a tree.
>>559098982Stop coping, retard. From ripping off Berserk isn't news. Even the castles and other shit in these games look 1:1 like other ones existingNo other games does that to such a degree.
Miyazaki has always been inspired by Berserk, why are we arguing about this?It might be the most open secret in the industry.It's what got me and probably a thousand other people to buy Dark Souls back in 2011. How is this news to /v/?
They never designed anything themselves. Dark Souls is literally just a series of setpieces stolen from somewhere interlinked with corridors
>>559099198>inspiredLooking at a picture in Google and basing half your locations and enemies on it, almost pixel by pixel, isn't "inspired". Okami is inspired by Zelda, there is nothing that resembles Zelda almost 1:1 though. Bayonetta is inspired by DMC.
>>559099135It's a giant white glowing tree visible from far away. How many stories have the exact same visuals?
>>559066215He also references lord of the rings and Harry potter all the time. Lord of the Rings having a tree more like this.
>>559099412It's the raveled branches of the tree that give away Miyahacki clearly stole the concept from Berserk againGenuinely hate this SJW goblin
>>559099557LotR tree is just a normal-sized white tree.
>>559076957I will show the absolute superiority of Berserk chads and give you another (you) because we are generous and charitable, especially to the mentally handicapped.
>>559075601>Implying people ITT actually played DS1Lmao
>>559094401'just because it doesnt happen doesnt mean its not happening'based retard
At this point they should just make a Berserk game. Set your game in Berserk world (Fantasia arc) with some random MC.
>>559099713I don't mean gondor. I mean valinor
>>559087842It's people who don't know anything about a creative process. If they knew how much stuff they deem original is also just inspired by what came before they'd have a mental breakdown.
>>559093707the horse doesnt rape her. Still fapped to that panel tho
Berserk actually invented big glowing trees, retards. Name 20 different series’ that have this same visual. Oh wait, you can’t!
>>559099752why wouldn't they? it's been out for 10 years across all platforms, got remastered too, even the fucking switch has it. That's like saying no one played OoT. Everyone did.
>niggas arguing about a friggin tree
>>559065852Come on, Miyazaki has always been heavily inspired by Berzerk.It's really not hard to rule this out as being homage.
>>559100027Is this from LotR or from those less known Tolkien works like Silmarillion?
>>559093707How have you not read Berserk?
>>559099231>amerikeks will never have such a beutiful masterpiece as the Duomo of Milan.Miyazaki has good taste
>>559099231>They never designed anything themselvesWhat's wrong with being inspired by European architecture?This isn't news to anyone, it's better than what Bluepoint did by just outsourcing people to make generic fantasy castles.
>>559075601Man, new games from fromsoftware are souless.Their games have lost that beauty and atmosphere since ds2.
>>559099824I'm talking about sick from overworking you -100 reading comprehension retard
>>559099231That applies to at least 80% of architects in the world you fucking idiot
>>559065619>asians copy another thing>IT'S LITERALLY THE THING!
can somebody make a mental gymnastics picture for the FromBots?
>>559065619>>559065668The Berserk one actually looks creative and interesting, though. The Elden Ring one looks generic
>>559065619>we want the Lomax audienceMiyazaki confirmed a hack. Stealing from Lomax now.
>>559098979>LotR or any other visual medium.Fuck off, kid
>>559065619>/a/ is leaking>they are retarded>ignorant of anything but nip cultureNever change.
What else is new, next you're going to tell me babybourne was kinda inspired by Lovecraft
>>559102624>Miura invented>cages>iron maidens>salamanders>swords>manta rays>corpses>abortions>faces>and treesTruly, the man was a genius.
>>559073867If you mean bezerk it's only had one good adaptation which only follows the one good manga arc which is entirely non nordic medieval europe
>>559100981raping and making beautiful aryan babies is the only one they need
>>559071940>literally every Master Piece movie like LOTR is inspired by Viking CultureWrong. Also, only part of LotR is Viking-inspired. You must be a dumb zoomer who don't know any better, or anything at all.
>>559069929>Berserk is fuckiung cringe
>>559084789I am pretty sure an interview claimed that they both respect each other's work, but nice fucking try faggot
i really dislike the pissyellow look of elden ring, didn't like it in ds3 either.
>>559098390>breaking wheel undeads were common stories in medieval europe.wheeling, or in german "rädern" from rad wheel was a form of execution. first they used a big wooden wheel to crush your limbs and then you are bound to said wheel using your limbs.after being bound to the wheel, the wheel is erected and put on a pole. and then the victim was usually strangled or stabbed.this still happened less than 200 years ago
>>559105515>this still happened less than 200 years agowe need to go back
>we are finally getting a berserk inspired open world rpgthank you miyazaki also rip miura
>>559100559Anime makes you gay and trans
>>559106671>this is what (((they))) want you to believeYour nose is showing. Into the glas with you.
>>559078949Her skin and limbs have seen better days, but that's alright
>>559073195Have you fucking seriously never heard of Yggdrasil? Japs put it in every single RPG because they just steal from Norse mythology every time
>>559086780>Show me a single thing in dark souls that is a lotr referenceAnd don't try to play dumb, you know EXACTLY what this is aping, you lying bitch.
>>559100637DS1 is far more soulless than DS2
>>559100337>That's like saying no one played OoT. Everyone did.Anon I...
>>559107947Please don't start anon, let's all have a nice discussion. Being aggressive helps no one.
>>559107947Neither have soul compared to Demon's Souls
>>559065619>>559065668>the concept of the world tree belongs to miuraberserkniggers are legitimately the most insufferable people on planet earth. 90 USD says you see guts and think "wow, he's so tortured! just like me!"
>>559073867the one that has a literal viking tranny?
>>559108072where in my post was I aggressive?
I'm completely fine with Berserk being ripped of, as From showed they can make good games.They make better Berserk games than anyone in the end.
>>559065954So, Dragon's Dogma?
>>559073867>>559075602>Drop it as soon as Askeladd diesactually basedhe was the one redeeming quality of that shitheap. never have i stopped caring about a piece of media faster than i stopped caring about vinland
omg people are discovering beserk now that's amazing
Is it just me or does Elden Ring graphics look PS2 tier. Maybe it's just the FromSoft style, but it looks heavily outdated in 2021.
>>559108230It's almost american hours, and you know how sensitive they are to hot opinions.
>>559108820>"B-BUT THE GWAPHICS!!!"Yeah, you seem to have the right priorities for a game.
>we got medivial souls>we got victorian/lovecraft souls>we got jeudal japanese souls>we're getting celtic/norse soulswhat's nextindia/hindu or aztec would be neat
>>559109050It's regarded as the ultimate pleb leaning but i still want scifi souls. That one ripoff game whatever it was called left me teased and ready.
>>559107915moth girl getting torn apart made me sad.
>>559086780Anor Londo means "Haven of the Sun" in Sindarin.
Weird i think elden ring to look really boring but i love berserk
>>559065619resetera trannies are seething. so it must be kino
>>559109050more medieval fantasy pleasesetting shopping is gay I just want good knight gameplay
>>559108072pic would be better if the small face was the same
>>559065619The mythology and lore are written by GRRM. So it's more than likely based on either Tolkein, the Kalevala, the Norse sagas, or a combination thereof, all in which trees play an important role.
>>559107947this. ds2 is the most soulful entry in the series. ds1 fans are just nostalgia trannies that think its the best because its the first one they played
>>559092458Christian Isekai with strong moral messages.
>>559092458Grimm fairy tales.
>there are anons on /v/ who has now actively started denying FROM games being heavily and overtly inspired by BerserklmaoThis board just gets worse and more stupid for every day that goes by.
>>559083737Wtf Storytelling in wc3 was so epic.
>>559092458Mainly books that were meant to educate children on morality, how the world worked, and what was dangerous.
>>559109340Literaly why and how, all souls girls are either warriors with proper armor and shit or weird semi nuns covered to hell and back. There are even femboys and shit in the series.
>b-but muh YggdrasilWhich picture books are you reading?The visual design, not the concept itself, but the visual design is very clearly Berserk influenced like an enormous amount of things in FROM's catalog ever since Demon's Souls, shit, probably even King's Field.How can people be this stupid...
>>559065852To pretend that the design wasn't inspired is so fucking intellectually dishonest
Elden ring is literally the One Ring.
>>559065619>>559065668>>559068130>>559069006>>559071460the eternal hack continues to steal from others https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxBQPcfFJnMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGDY4r951Zc
>>559071460While there are already many blatant Berserk references in Elden Ring, this is not one of them. Don't be retarded now. Torturer's masks are not a Berserk thing. The only way this would hold up as a Berserk inspired thing would be if the helmet was actually hawk/falcon shaped like Griffith's, but it's not, it's just a regular helmet.
>>559093707the genetic failurethe coombrainthe jizz consciencethe never passer
>>559109050It's implied in the VR game that an Aztec-like Bloodborne is coming.
>>559109769These motherfuckers were hardcode.Some of their shit was pretty fucked up reading as a kid.
>>559073990>>559073867>literaly unironic genuine tranny seriesVinland Saga went to absolute shit since the author went retarded.
>>559109959Likely no uggo humans and whales. Even From's troons are still pretty in the end.The celtic chick, even without a limb and odd skin, is still good looking.
>Demon's Souls and Dark Souls is Conviction arc>Elden Ring is Falcon of the Millenium Empire>Next new dark fantasy IP from FROM is Fantasia
>>559072051ds has literally referenced jojo with tarkus
>>559092639>It's the "This isn't a Berserk inspired game" episode again.
>>559109992>b-but muh BerserkThe worldbuilding was done by grrm. >"Martin's role in Elden Ring is exactly that. He's not determining individual plot points as much as he is creating the world and setting the foundation for Miyazaki and FromSoftware to build upon. Miyazaki himself described Martin's role as being similar to a dungeon master's guidebook. He's not the dungeon master, who guides the narrative through its various twists and turns, but he established the rules within which the story must happen.">https://gamerant.com/george-r-r-martins-involvement-elden-ring-explained/The tree is pretty clearly inspired by the two trees of valinor.
>>559099231>StolenYou know design is the sum experiences of the one creating the design right? There is no such thing as an original idea.
>>559109263mothloli a cute
>>559065619>>559065668>>559065852>Le World TreeMiyazaki is creatively bankrupt
>>559110892That's a pretty good way to do it to keep both author vision.
>>559110892You think George is the art director you stupid motherfucker?
>>559110389They were Germans, so obviously.
>MUH INSPIRATIONS>MUH STEALING DESIGNSGod damn idiots, literally everybody steals from everybody. If you think all of Miura's designs are original, then you are a brain dead moron who hasn't even read the comments and behind the scenes sections of the manga.
>>559110278tfw berserk invented everythingtfw inspiration doesn't existtfw all "original ideas" are actually 100% original, and not also inspired by other artists/works/historical events/cultures/designs
>YFW THE ECLIPSE IS ACTUALLY FUCKING HAPPENING THIS TIME
>>559111328The threads premise is literally that it's good that it's inspired by Berserk
>>559065619>Norse shit yet again
>>559111491Because all the evidence points to that. When you have a single reference to something then it might not be the inspiration. When you have like over 50 references to the same material, then 9 times out of 10 it is referencing said material.
>>559111491read the rest of the thread and tell me these retards are saying it's a good thing
>>559071690Berserk was huge influence in Japan.
>>559109245time period thing souls is already ultimate pleb leaning.
>>559111175>The guy that spends paragraphs detailing the diarrhea of his characters didn't give any visual clues whatsoever of the giant glowing tree in his world.
>>559075602Holy shit how is it possible to be filtered so hard? Farm is easily the best arc in the entire story.
>>559109849Nobody is denying berserk influences, but a fucking glowing tree doesn't instantly equal berserk reference. There's magical tree shit in tons of media.
>>559069006is that a helmet of is he an actual awoo? I want to play as a cute and sexy werewolf
>>559112462The one on the left is an actual awoo, but I doubt you'll turn into one yourself
>>559065619>tree of life >invented by berserk no
>>559111739>it's technically still ongoingIs there a single fucking series those lazy Nips bastards ever finish before dying or just stopping in the middle?
>>559112810Awful game.Barely anything similar to Soul.
>>559065668Is that a big tree ?!!??! Zomg that like tottaly a firepunch refrence
>>559112745>What is the difference between concept and design
>>559102624Berserk invented medieval torture.
>>559065619>Miyazaki has not said one thing since Miura's passing in spite of owing his career to him.
>>559110502she was red head that didn't get black washed. Of course they would hate it.
>>559101801fucking based lomax chad
>>559111581Now lets not give Assassin's Creed too much credit.
Don't remind me... I'm still gutted. Why couldn't that fat cunt Martin be the one to go.
>>559115165This social media bullshit age>If you don't make a public statement you don't carePiss off you troglodyte
>>559115040Raimi ripped off Berserk?!
>>559073990>>559073867>Tranny SagaIt stopped being good a long time ago when they introduced trannies and SJW shit
>>559065619There are more JoJo references in the entire miyazaki canon than anything from virgin berserk.
>But this just Dark Souls againI don't understand this point of view. Are you someone who doesn't enjoy Fromsoft gameplay and want them to do something else because you just like the aesthetics?
>>559110374>>559110374>>559112606>>559112606still curious about this
Berserk stole most of its shit too.
>Game rips off berserkI will now buy your gameJust like all the other berserk rip offsIf you don't like berserk you're literally a fag go stuff your face with penises
>>559107223Feel like she's going to be sister friede meets great ape level of a fight
>>559085160What? He's literally the greatest red flag about the game.
>>559117074There are? I can't really think of any.
>>559065619>>559115165If such is the case they are direct competitors. If I were to rip on someone AND make a more popular, more successful and much more fulfilling product, with an actual end to it. I would absolutely feel smug and arrogant to not only not acknowledge a lesser hack than me but feel a sense of deep pride and accomplishment that they're dead and I'm still alive. Fuck em.
>>559117949One is a manga and the other is a video game, these are not direct competitors.
>>559118173They operate in the same genre at least, which pits them to judgement and comparison. All bets are off since everything in the entertainment industry is competition on a large scale. Attention and engagement are real human resources to be exploited for profit, regardless of what media it is.
>>559115212That's a good point, and they are racists there; just anti-white ones.
>>559118091fuck off vaati
>>559073214There's six chapters ready
>>559118784really?also I haven't been following, but I've seen that one of the people working under Miura has posted something that he might continue it soon after the death announcement
>>559073195nice bait otherwise please leave, you must be at least 18 to post here
>>559107393desu japs tend to just throw names that they think sound cool around, but not actually allude to any real concept
>>559065619surprised are you? george a copy cat is, for years from Tolkien he stole
What the fuck is wrong with berserkfags, berserk itself is just fantasy cliches
>>559065619does the game end on a cliffhanger after chapter 4 too?
>>559071940very zoomer yikes
>>559119479>fantasy clichesName ONE (1)(juan) fantasy game that isn't
It doesn't surprise me that berserk fags are the most insufferable manga fans to exist, they literally love abuse since the manga itself is a collection of the writer's twisted fetishes and bleak views on pretty much everything. And they don't even have a finished product. Do not engage with anyone that loves being abused this way, they are so far down in the consciousness level it's not even worth looking in their direction. They are the apostles of the real world, pay no attention let them revel in their filth and stupidity.
>>559111045god damn this panel goes so fucking hard
>>559122387if berserk bothers you this much, imagine how the entire genre of soap operas will make you feel
>>559077519name a good manga if berserk is shit to you, faggot.
