PS3

Demon's Souls had been released today in Japan, and as usual now the great DjMizuhara sent us a gameplay video, with of course much more to come.

I like the dark atmosphere... are the slow downs due to the video because I have seen a stream of the game and they didnt appear to exist even in huge boss fights

Wow the game looks insanely boring. Graphics are lackluster, controls seem to be ass (player seems to be having problems anyway) and it's just so...slow :P

*edit: forgot the mandatory "zomfgWTFBBQ?!?!?!??!!!? Evar herd of colorz!?"

I liked the cgi start. When the actual game start it became boring.

The graphics are average, but the combat is truly awful. Looks like a game that helps people get to sleep easily.

Looks pretty meh. Coming from From Software, that isn't a surprise.

So they make shitty games, but you can't say that they suck because...they try?

no. you can say they suck :) i wasn't implying that nobody should say so. it just seems to be EVERY game they do... sucks. yet they keep on producing them!? (must be costing them a fortune.)

atmosphere = good
gameplay = not so good.

it reminds me of a more graphically impressive, closer-in version of baldurs gate (console version) tbh. which isnt necessarily a bad thing, it's just incredibly dated. i'll probably give it a rental if and when it hits UK shores.

Very rigid movement and a complete lack of shadows makes it look like a half finished game.

Not really. They don't put the production money to polish titles so they should be breaking even. Not to mention, they don't always publish their titles so someone has else hoofs the bill.

it does have shadows....it just seems to be very selective as to when it wants to show them.

Yeah. There is self shadowing on the character, but no hints of shadows from the lightsource around the character's waste.

CG looks great, in-game looks great, gameplay looks like WKC sped up. Overall it looks decent but nothing amazing. I just think this game is bad timing with WKC. Who even knows when NA or EU will get either game...

Very PCish in its design and execution. Doesn't stand out in any area.
