Knight, Wanderer and Thief outfits looks awesome!

I hope they give us more and better face customization this time, Demons Souls had a shitty one.

looks nice :)

and as i heard it'll have a better checkpoint/save-system than DS (imo that was the only challenging part of DS, the gameplay mechanic itself was'n that hard)

First game i've ever payed for in full prior to release. Gonna be awesome

@sath not too bothered about face customisation personally. Wore a helmet through the entirety of demon's souls so never saw it anyway.

Face customisation was absolutely awful; every option looked ridiculous. Then again, I was a Knight class and so my face couldn't really be seen... although part of the reason for me choosing that class was because of how awful the face customisation was. It'd be nice to have that as an option though.

World and enemy designs look awesome as always.

camera's still broken.. really should have put more effort into that.

Wonder how much the camp fires will alter the game.. alot of the draw was its sadistic nature.. it beats you to submit to it to the point where you can accept and work around the games obvious flaws. Without that (or that lessened quite abit) those flaws may become more obvious and focused on rather than being camoflagued by the tension of knowing you'd have to start everything again should you fuck up.

By the way it is described, the camp fires are just a 1:1 replacement of the nexus stones that you came across at the end of each level. Shouldnt make much difference.

I was the Royalty, yeah i went with the cheap class, sue me! lol

So I had to see the face, damn it all.
The beard looked like he had a aweful decease on the face haha, nasty.

But I am loving those assassin like outfits Wanderer and Thief has, should cover the head nicely.
I would like to use Knight but man I cant stand slow movement in games, awesome armor though.

Yeah the Knight's slow movement did get annoying at times... has a good defence though which allowed me to use the cautious approach. Constant raised shield FTW. :P

The rolling is what annoyed me the most tbh, dear god it was soooo slow.
The sprint wasent a issue for me. I could just do a quick unequip armor to run away from the dragon's firey breath lol

The sprinting was fine; it was pretty much the roll mechanic. But once you got your stats up high enough it wasn't so much of a problem.

It was the speed of the roll and recover that annoyed me, I couldnt take it.

I had the game 3 times, love and hate relationship (damn you fantasy lol), Royalty is what made me finish the game.
The speed of the movement and the cheapness of the soul arrow haha

Reguardless of being related to Demon's Souls, I am really curious as to if this game will actually sell big ammounts of copies, at a minimum of 2 to 3 million, if it does not (unless there is something wrong with the game) that will be sad.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I still think the iOS UX is inferior to both stock android and several android launchers. (13 minutes ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @KORNdog: I can understand the player count difference. But, frame rate? (14 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I got a killer deal on a 12.9" iPad Pro.. this thing is massive. (22 minutes 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. (27 minutes 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. (1 Hour ago)

    crookedmind ... to connect to each other for multiplayer? (2 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind Question for you guys, since most of you are console-centric. Is the playstation network cross compatible with their older consoles? For instance, do ps3 games also released for ps4 have the ability.. (2 Hours ago)
