Tech wise is outdated as f**k. but no one will play it for the good graphics.

In this very site this arguement has been torn apart about some other games lol.

Double standards for the win.

having said that I completly agree with you, gameplay is what matters in ALL games not just this one.

Tech wise it still looks better than Diablo 3. ( Flame on... )

Looks awesome as usual. Sure not the most impressive game technically but it certainly has a distinct style and the mood from the first game seems to be intact. So yeah, can't wait for next month when i get my grubby little hands on the Limited Edition :)

*edit: Oh noes! they pushed the date back! I was so sure it'd get a release in september :(

Oh and i realized another thing. Maybe the "Dark" in the title is a hint back at Dark Tower?

Where i pre-ordered it they claim it'll hit October 7th. But that's all right i guess, i've got a few games to go through until then anyway. Gotta catch up on my Tekken playing when i get home too :P

maybe the 22nd corrisponds to the US then? just remember reading an article saying it had slipped a week to the 22nd.

This will be one of the best if not the best game of this year. It will have checkpoints but they said game will not be toned down in difficulty

Hey, From Software, make Chromehounds 2!!

I've been meaning to pick up Demon's Souls for a while now, heard so many good things.
Commented on 2011-08-13 03:41:47
It's coming out on my birthday. Perfect excuse for a present.

Also, say what you want about it from a technical perspective; the art direction frickin' rocks.
Commented on 2011-08-13 09:00:40
Better than Demons Souls thats for sure!

I'm not sure I understand either of your points. Are you saying he's wrong about the tech being dated, or that people will play it for its graphics? I'm so confused.

This game is going to be dominated by Skyrim and the gfx are not that good. But yeah this game has some hardcore fans

In al honesty i think it'll probably do quite well. Demon's Souls suprassed the publishers expectations and got a pretty nice reception int erms of reviews. Now that the word is out i think a lot more people will buy Dark Souls. Sure, skyrim doesn't ave to worry about it stealing many sales, but the agian they are't even releaseing in the same month so people who want both will probably be able to get both :P
Commented on 2011-08-14 00:59:36 In reply to Megido
I'm sure as heck getting both. And with The Lord of the Rings: War in the North being released in between the both of them, the very much prominent fantasy geek in me is ultra happy.

This is more action RPG. Skyrim has exploration but combat not as good as this one.
Commented on 2011-08-14 01:13:40
I never udnerstood why you'd call Demon's Souls an RPG though. It has a few RPG elements to it, like leveling up, but the main focus is obviously on the action/combat. I think the same will be true with this one. But yeah, Dark Souls and Skyrim will be wastly different experiences, no doubt about that :P
Commented on 2011-08-14 01:40:07
This is the GOTY!

But I think most game critic, media will go with Uncharted3 or SKyrim.

Here is DS vs SKyrim opnion from GT

looks decent

hope the difficulty won't be toned down because of all those "generation playstation"-players complaning about Demons Souls (all those possibly haven't been to videogames very long...)
Commented on 2011-08-14 20:00:53
If anyone would complain it would be the new incomers from 360's side lol
Commented on 2011-08-14 20:02:44
not that many people moan about its hardness, most people praise it..
Commented on 2011-08-14 22:05:38
Yeah, the more dedicated gamers out there praise it, but i think a lot ofpeple will be whining as well since this time it'll reach a bigger audience.

    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (16 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (17 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I still think the iOS UX is inferior to both stock android and several android launchers. (2 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @KORNdog: I can understand the player count difference. But, frame rate? (2 Hours ago)

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker By the way, was the rumor about Dark Souls 3 for Switch as part of a trilogy posted here? Interesting if true. DS on the go. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: there may be rare cases, but generally, no. Case in point, BF4. Player count was different, framerate was different. It wouldn't work. (3 Hours ago)
