Dark Souls the 1st 13 minutes

Released today in Japan, Dark Souls will test your patience like no other game. If you're a gluten for punishment then Dark Souls is right up your street. More video to come (well, if I can stop being killed that is).

You will have to wait until release date. Otherwise you will DIE.

But why don't they want to call it the sequel to Demon's souls? It's got the exact same animation, the exact same sounds when you kill something, the same bars over their head.

It's trade mark kind of thing or something. I think Sony owns the Demon Souls name..

Its also because Sony Japan developers worked with From Software to create the game.

Anyways it does not matter, its the same genre so if you are brave come and get killed.

Why do you play as a zombie now? And it looks the exactly same as DS with slightly improved textures. Kinda disappointing.

Can't see how those two things can cause disappointment really.. DS looked just fine and zombies..

If I had to hear to that armor tingling during all my playthrough,i'd off myself.
Commented on 2011-09-24 19:49:27
will be fun again reading all those comments of these nowaydays "generation playstation cutscene-every5minutecheckpoint-gamer", who'll cry that the game is too hard for them
(as already with Demons Souls you can tell which gamer isn't into gaming for very long and which one knows the times when games were really hard...)

Is rolling as important as it was in Demon's Souls? I just noticed that the guy in the new video never did it.
Commented on 2011-09-24 22:26:54
You know I actually liked these videos and how it started, you get the impression that you were supposed to die but no you are supposed to kill and win this time so then you get a hint at changing strategies and hey I was like dude you are golden but then... surprise lol... lmao.

Just one tip: USE THAT SHIELD! ;-)

I rolled alot to get away from attacks, it is important if you dont want to get hit and use potions.
But then again I refused to wear armor that slows the character down even more than they already are.

lol - didn't even finish the last one ... - sigh -

I don't know about you, but I want to have fun when I play a game. If the game is almost impossible to finish, then it is not a fun game to play.
