Here is the opening cinematic for the PS3 exclusive, Demon's Souls, which is set to be released stateside on October 6th. This is a shaky cam video form the Asian import.
OMFG!! I can not wait for this beautiful amazing game!! :'( it is tears of joy! Finally going to get my hands on it!
Amazing fresh new IP's, highly anticipated sequels like Uncharted 2, AC2, GoW3... Good times to be a gamer :)
What exactly is this? Like a baldurs gate or more RPG style game? Besides that little question, this looks pretty cool. :)
It does not play like Baldur's Gate. Imagine Drakan: the Ancient Gates but when you're in those long ass dungeons without Arok. The recording is kinda bright... or my HDTV is better...
The game is freakin amazing and very difficult. I imported it from playasia.com and can't stop playing. At this time there is no other game like this on curent generation of consoles. It's something between Summoner and Drakan but much more badass.
coz i aint got a clue what this is about...and it's hard to excited about a cgi trailer of a new(or in my case unheard of) i.p! edit: just went off and did abit of research on this...and WOW. the graphics look great, and this has just gone from unknown to first day in five minutes. the co-op also sounds great. but, i dont like the no friends list or ability to invite friends into the game. sounds like the lack of unified features on the psn is at fault, and not the devs excuse of wanting to make the community stronger as i read in one preview. still as i said day one purchase.
For the record, the nasty Eurogamer critics reviewed the Japanese version already and gave it a 9/10 :))))
I wish like hell I could!
Wow...alright this just made my must buy list. :D
I got a mate whose sisters are goin to Hong Kong for a bit. Hopefully they'll get me a copy of this as well as Blazblue :D
I can't effin' wait for this game to come to the states.....yeah!
It is. I watch this video every time I start the game. Always amazing to see. =)
All my hopes and dreams shattered like fine porcelain against cold granite.What? not that bad but damn I want to play this. Looking AWESOME,yes in full caps,for FULL effect.=) Hidden gem, guaranteed.
I suprised this game hasn't been mentioned until now. I happened to hear about it when I checked out gamestop online. It looks interesting and beautiful but I will wait until I play it. I dont want to be disappointed like I was when I got my hopes up for the pile of crap known as "two worlds".
I wanna be a knight! =3
I started as a knight. But now my character is equipped like a thief for speed. Rolling really helps especially in PvP when you get attacked by people.
Except when you roll off a cliff...... =)
I helped Meladarkwood on a quest in 3-2 and she got attacked by Black Phantom three times. Against one of them, i was screwing around so much that i fell off and died. It was hilarious. I was too strong for the Black Phantom but he probably felt relieved when i killed myself.
Oh yeah, I saw this a couple weeks ago. Is this the one with the demon carrying a corpse in its claws and flying? Awesomely executed. Great visuals.
again why isnt this coming to the eu?
Realy not coming to Europe?..... It's still not released yet... Exclusives PS3 games will always coming out for Europe. So don't worry be happy... Another PS3 exclusive!!
Totally underrated game. Easily one of the better upcoming RPGs.
think Baldurs Gate with Oblivion gameplay and graphics (well better actually)
a medieval version of God of War! Can't wait to see more!
I'll tell you now. It's not like God of War.
Is it more like monster hunter?
Kinda like MH but not really. Hard to explain.
That was a nice opening cinematic. That giant beast looks mad.
This is harsh.Evaluate me. :)
I rated you.
'Demon's Souls' doesn't roll off the tongue very well. Demon Souls sounds better. Anyway, nice intro. Hope it's a good one.
Could anyone that has played the game tell me how far the "In game graphics" are from the cinematic ones?....Thanks... I already know that the gameplay is great,and something well worthwhile...
Kinda close kinda not. Watch some HQ vids off youtube. But all the enemies you see are in the game. The golden skeletons are b*tch in New Game+.
Now I could be wrong but this game is already out in some parts of the world, right? Has anybody played it? I heard it's extremely difficult. Now is it hard because it's buggy or is it hard because it's just a good challenge. I love games like that. I want this game.
Read the comments in the past articles in N4G. A lot of people including myself wrote a load of stuff about how awesome the game is in detail (difficulty, control, enemies, weapons, armors, soul level, etc).
i cant wait to play this game almost 100% of the games atlus puts its stamp on are great, and i buy them on release without a second though
if you cant be arsed waiting import it from japan, its in english game is one of the hardest rpg's i played
Yeah, but it's a good kind of hard, in my opinion. It doesn't feel cheap, it just feels like you are an ordinary human warrior that has to fight right, or die. As you go along you get better and you are able to overcome the game's challenges. But yes, it is quite hard. I am so glad that more people are going to get to play this amazing game.
When is the game coming to Europe? I want this and White Knight Chronicles.
Not played a lot of RPG's but I'll definately be giving this one a go. That was a really intriguing opening sequence,looked fantastic it's got me hooked.
if the game is as good as the cinema, which is frigging sweet...cant wait.. someone say its out overseas ?
It has already been release (in Feb '09), in Japan, Asian and Korea. The Asian (Chinese) and Korean versions contain full English support. They are import friendly. I own the Korean version. Those who are interested, you can find more info here: http://demonssouls.wikidot....
I can't wait until the deluxe edition comes out here in the US! I almost broke down and purchased the asian version, but after finding out that there's going to be a deluxe release just for the rest of the US gamers that are patient (like me), I'm obviously waiting for the "ultimate" version of this epic RPG.
But when you get a grip on it it´s really awesome. It´s like youre a normal person put in a world of monsters and demons, and not a superhero. I can strongly recommend this game aslong as you have a little patience.
Ok CGI looks cool, how about game play?
how about searching for it then ? Almost the whole game is already up in vids
Another one to add to my colletion. But just have a feeling that this is going to be delayed until 2010.
They're done with localization I believe, and it already came out in Japan. It'll be out this year with no hitches.
after reading yours and fellow gamers reports on the game. i took the decision to import the game of e-bay. I must say that the purchase has been an excellent addition to my gaming catalogue, also i must say it is the challenge of the game that makes it standout. My hands were shaking during some of the boss fights.
Good choice! I too couldn't wait for it to arrive in the US and imported it. The boss fights can be really scary, but I'm always freaked out when someone breaks into my game. I hate Black Phantoms.... =\
Looks good, friend who imported it told me its a challenging game with good graphics and the online intergradation is amazing but he did say its one of the hardest games out there, I'll wait for reviews before I decide on my purchase
I have played every rpg on xbox ps3 and pc, DEMONS SOULS IS THE BEST RPG OUT THERE PERIOD!!! Finished it 2 weeks after it came out,platinum for it,if you liked kings field for ps1"done by same peps",and diablo and oblivion YOUR LOVE THIS!!!!.Buy it,it nukes fable 2 from orbit!!!. Also finished sacred 2 plat,and infamous,and lately socom ,kill2. SO I AM HARDCORE!!!!! Ps demons souls is hard,but once used to mons,combat,and killing reds VERY QUICKLY,itsa easy.
Got the game in about a week ago form play-asia, and man does it kick your arse! But in a good way. I haven't felt this kind of desire to get stronger just to see what's around the corner since Final Fantasy XI.
