As long as its a challenge and stays true to the series then count me in. NamcoBandai, if this game loses what made it special then PREPARE for a Demon to Arise from thyn N4g comment section.

Hahahaha! What I meant is that it would be RE6 all over again.
And on a side note I present to you an enchanted "bubbles up" for making me laugh so you can fight the "Trolls, demons and other lowly trash arise from the bowels of the the N4G comments section every 3 secs."

Dunno why you got 7 disagrees and no agrees. Your comment was hilarious. Bubble up for great justice!

Looks like it might be current gen after all. Not a bad thing.
Zer0bros  +   962d ago
I haven't even played Dark Souls yet. I don't know if I want to though but if it's like Skyrim, then I'll get it. And if I enjoy it, then I'll get Dark Souls 2 as soon as it comes out
xabmol  +   962d ago
I love Dark Souls and can't stand Skyrim, so...

You might wanna try it before you make any monetary commitments.
dark-hollow  +   962d ago
the combat in dark souls and the difficulty is way and beyond skyrim
Zer0bros  +   962d ago
Yeah I heard Dark Souls is insanely difficult.

Is it an exaggeration? Or is it REALLY that difficult?
Zichu  +   962d ago

It feels difficult to begin with, but you get used to it. It's all about timing. Block and dodge attacks, find an opening and you will find a flaw in the enemies attack pattern.

Don't just go all out, because you will die.

Oh and did I mention you will die a hell of a lot, so if that happens, you aren't doing anything wrong lol
greatcrusader44  +   962d ago
Its difficult, but I beat it and I don't consider myself that great at games and the fact I enjoyed it means its not frustratingly hard.

Your going to die, a lot, like easily past the 100s, but when you realize your supposed to die and that it's just another mechanic to the game rather than it being a sign of failure, that's when the game gets good.
Zer0bros  +   962d ago
Wow.. never really heard of a game that actually wants the gamers to die more (in game of course)

Hm I might just buy a copy of Dark Souls for my PS3 right now!
Cam977  +   962d ago
You don't know What difficult it until you've slated Ornstein on anything above NG+
xabmol  +   962d ago
As a Soul lvl 1?

Yeah, that was fun. Prase the sun for pyromancy!
RyuCloudStrife  +   962d ago
They just made Demon's Souls free on PS+ in case you have PS+ you can try that game for free. Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls, so you can get a taste of the difficulty.

(Assuming you haven't played Demon's Souls)...

@Zer0bros i always remember the first time i played demon souls, I thought i was playing hack & slash games. I was so forward and offensive towards enemies I guess I was barbarian like kratos but that didn't work at all I gave up playing demon soul for one year but I kept my copy because i love the game. after one year i finished the game.
BlackTar187  +   962d ago
zero if you haven't played Demon Soul play that personally love both games but something about Demon soul makes it magical. Its actually the worlds i loved walking thru a gate and having a complete theme world with a central location. Dark souls had what i described in a sense. But demon soul just made the world beyond the doors seem more engrossing.
user7693958  +   962d ago
@Zer0bros if you have a PS3 you have to also get Demon Souls! come one!! any pS3 owner should play it!!!! plus i bet you csn find it at a cheap price!
waltercross  +   961d ago
@ Zer0bros

What makes things tough in DS is not just the combat, you learn how to fight, but when you die you drop all of your money and you are Resurrected and must get your money back before you die again, if you don't then the money you dropped is gone.

Also you can't save the game, it saves every few secs on it's own.
darren_poolies  +   962d ago
It's nothing like Skyrim. And I feel the same as xabmol, hate Skyrim but love Dark Souls (easily my favourite game of all time).
avion  +   962d ago
dark souls is far better than skyrim.
Cam977  +   962d ago
Cue giddy school girl mode:
byeGollum  +   962d ago
It looks like more of the same, which isn't a bad thing for those that can't get enough. I stopped at Demon Souls.
ps3_pwns  +   962d ago
skyrim sucks cant believe you want darksouls to be like skyrim and suck lol.
Brucis  +   962d ago
>gameplay footage tomorrow

YES! Finally!
thaimasker  +   962d ago
It actually comes out today in about 8 hours.
Salooh  +   962d ago
6 hours o.o

Didnt journalists say that ds2 looks like cgi and you can compare it with watch dogs?
Did i miss something?
But if this is just the ps3 version then it looks good :)
If there is a CHANCE for a ps4 version then i really expect more..
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   962d ago
That one screenshot has me really excited!
I can't wait to get my ass handed to me all over again.
DivineAssault  +   962d ago
I really hope its a dual gen release..
Tei777  +   962d ago
Looks ugly
console version?
Tei777  +   962d ago
Well Edge reported it had stunning visuals, so I would suspect this is the case, but also its still a very awkward shot, which is more what I was referring to. Why have the first official in-game screenshot look like an accidental print screen?

And lol to all the disagree's, the game will undoubtably look great based of the reports but that doesn't change the fact that the above screen shot looks like poop from the crap framing to the horrible colour palette.
GABRIEL1030  +   962d ago
I expected that the game would be "next gen", because I would like to see a open world, with large scenarios, amazing locations, horse riding, big battles with a lot of online players , new effects and textures. I have Demon's souls for free by PSN PLUS suscription, It's very difficult, addictive, intriguing and dark, a masterpiece full of art. But the game looks in some areas simplistic and repetitive. I think that two parts of the game in the actual consoles are enough, there isn't much to exploit in the 360/PS3 in technical terms. Well We'll see.

I remember some journalists saying something like "It looks close to the CGI trailer, especially the character designs."

Well... Yeah. Pretty close I guess, if you're using glasses as thick as the bottom of a soda bottle.
Mister_G  +   962d ago
Want it THIS year please :)
Prcko  +   962d ago
i except visuals like capcom ps4 game,anything below won't impress me
Swiggins  +   962d ago
Wanderer armor confirmed to return.

This is actually slightly disconcerting, we now know that the Wanderer Set and the Elite Knight Set are in the game and look remarkably similar to their Dark Souls 1 counterparts...

I wanna see new armor!
PCfanboy  +   962d ago
Hope came to PS4
Do not want to play the game at 20 FPS on X360
pissed999  +   962d ago
Hopefully the pc port is big superior time without big superior modders having to do what the developer should have done in the first place suckers. DX11, ambient occlusion, steamworks.

kingduqc  +   962d ago
looks blurry as fuck full of aliasing man.
farqy  +   962d ago
Hey as far as i'm concerned keep this true to demon souls and dark souls and if they want a wider appeal have a difficulty setting. Its not difficult to add that!
sdplisken  +   962d ago
dark souls 2 is my 2nd most wanted game right behind MGSV

cant wait
iWishTifaWasReal  +   961d ago
it wouldnt hurt them to release this on PS4 éh
