Well I can't find a thread for the game, which I'm quite surprised since Demon's Souls has recently hit to be up there with one of my most favorite PRG games. With the difficulty and the way it makes you think and plan out your attacks rather then just rushing in to fight. Now with the sequal coming out in October, I'm excited for it. The game is just so fun and really provides a challenge, and with some of the trailers coming out for Dark Souls it seems like it shall be as brutal.XD
So time to get ready to die again....and again, and again, and again, etc. XD
Plus what is nice it's one of those rare games that has the Collector's Edition upgrade with you only paying the regular price of the game so that's always great.

I'm looking forward to this one as well. I'm hoping to either see it in action or get some footage of it being played by humans at PAX next week.

my friend said he saw his first dark souls commercial on tv last night... i don't know if this is the same one but it's the one featured on youtube right now.



i'm definitely going to keep an eye out for trindall's and b-coli's videos from PAX this year. hopefully they'll get good footage of actual gameplay. :)

a new video just came out from namco bandai. a short clip (Prologue) that shows a little bit more of dark souls world. what i'm most excited about is the open world format that draws away from demon's souls' linear gameplay, which means a lot more exploration, and most likely a lot more time will be needed to complete the game:

Nice new trailer, I can't wait for this game, even though I'm not even that far in Demon's SOuls still XD
I like the name of the website (Preparetodie.com) doesn't it just give you so much hope? XD

Love the game despite some of its hardship XD, I enjoyed Demon Souls alot I cant wait for this one, Im more than sure it will be an amazing game, it has so much hype already and people/reviewers are trowing out 10's and perfects at the game like crazy.

I just hope all this "Hype" thing wont ruin anything, you know how developers get when a game gets so much attention, hope they dont go all "Hollywood" on the series if you know what I mean.

thought i'd share a nice review of the final build of dark souls. apparently the author of the review had also previewed the demo version of dark souls and was not impressed. :P this review explains why he has had a change of heart. here's the link:

http://www.psu.com/D...-a012815-p0.php

aside from the open world format, i was most excited to see character customization even further enhanced. in demon's souls you can change the look of a character from the neck up. :P apparently now a player can customize body shape as well. why do i get the feeling we'll be seeing many big breasted women characters hacking and slashing their way through dark souls. :P

i found this very brief japanese tv ad for dark souls. the game is coming out for them on september 22, the lucky ducks. i get very excited about any new little glimpse i can get of the game. can you tell? :P my favorite part is when a player is waving but doesn't realize what's barreling down behind him. :P

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZFkqqSGjzc&feature=player_embedded

edit:

another one i pulled off the above link. :) i can't be *totally* sure but there seems to be an awful lot more monsters in this game. i mean off the scale, huge monsters. i'm getting squirmy nervous already. :P

apparently someone from kotaku spent 30 minutes with the tutorial for dark souls... aaaand died 12 times. :P he prefaces his article by saying he didn't care for demon's souls and never finished it, but respects those people who love the game for the same reasons he hates it. :P lol! here is the article for those interested:
