Absolutely amazing, and love the music!

Visually it looks much better than Demons Souls, and thank god that it has more colors and more light/daylight, makes us appreciate the levels much more.

I definitely can't wait for this game!

OMG! This is utterly beautiful!!!
I loved so much Demon's Souls, can't wait to see more of this new gem!

I also appreciate the fact that this time it is more colorful than DS xD

Demon Souls was the most joyless experience I think I've ever had with a video game. I hated every second of it. It's a game for masochists.

Will be probably one of the best Action RPG ever made if we take Doemon Souls as an example!!

Gonna be a long wait for this.

I want to preorder the Collector's Edition already!!

Even when they are going for a more traditional fantasy look, Japanese art design outclasses Western again.

Bioware! Pay attention to this game. This is how Dragon Age should look.

Can't wait, I this Demon's Souls is 1 of the best Adventure Rpgs ever made.
As the spiritual successor, Dark Souls looks really promising on all fronts.

It looks less like a spiritual successor and more like an actual sequel who can't call itself Demon's Souls 2 because it went multi-platform when the IP is owned by Sony, but uses the same engine as the original game and a similar art style and aesthetic. A spiritual successor is more like Xenosaga to Xenogears IMO.

Either way more people weill haev a chance to play this game.

Awesome stuff I hope it sells a few million so they can make more of this, Dark Souls sequels.

Haha. It doesn't need to sell a few million to be successful (in fact, it probably won't get anywhere near two million). The original sold around one million and it was a success.

Hopefully, Namco Bandai is smart about this, and goes about localization the right way; i.e. with the cost efficiency of Atlus. That means not printing an obscene amount of copies and also offering a nice LE package for first day buyers. Of course, Namco Bandai isn't that smart and I WISH Atlus was handling the localization for the West.

Demons souls was good, but i do find people over hype it more than it really deserves.
"OMG YOU JUST CANT PLAY IT IT TOO HARD FO YO FO SHURE"

Its also not that hard, just repetetive if you dont take your time.

I remember when demons souls was first shown here (before it got popular) o the hate it got, it's funny to see how that turned around. I bought it on a whim about 2 months before it came out in europe and yeh I loved it, very cool game I hope this will be a proper sequel and not just a rehash/way to milk the series. Lets live and hope hey?

based on what i've heard about it. i'd take a rehashy game personally. as i said in the forums, darkness and gloom was part of what i loved about demon's souls. it was genuinely quite intense and freaky exploring a dark castle or prison. i can't imagine that same tension will be retained when it's broad daylight and the world is colourfull. apparently they've stripped the whole persistant online mode from the game too, instead opting for a more standard (and frankly boring) online co-op system (i'm betting due to the 360's closed network). world tendency, the thing that made it replayable and difficult is also gone. i dunno. doesnt sound like the "sequel" i want personally, even if it is by a different name, hence why i'm hoping sony pull their finger out and make a real sequel set in the demon's souls world, with demon's souls rules. i just want more of the same at this point, and this doesnt seem to offer that outside of it's combat system?!?

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (45 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
