How a game that looks and plays a lot like a saga I've played for thousands of hours still manages to get intriguing? I want to know why the civies attack that slayer :P

It seems that it will feel too much like the souls series with only a few changes. It's gonna be fun, that i am sure of but i wouldn't want From software making a another new ip which which another game that feels like a Souls game.

The Castlevania game I always wanted.

Is the MC the crowned fairy king or are the enemies designed to always miss? It looks way easier to dodge, negating the whole distance/range the game usually had in term of melee combat design (because the magic was always awful design and too powerful).

It's a spiritual Demons Souls sequel and it's awesome!. That music where he's fighting the enormous boss, the music is very like Demon souls. Even the look of the game is more Demon then Dark souls. I hope we can customize the look of the character.

This gives me a "Tower of Latria" from Demons' Souls vibe. Love it. But I hope the game has something new to offer....other than the setting.

It looks too similar to the Dark Souls games; they're stagnating in innovation and that's not good for new IP's.

This game really needs dismemberments, it doesn't look good like this. After watching the trailer I expected something different. Everyone's getting conformist with From Software games.

This game will probably make me buy a ps4 in a year or two,just like Demons Souls did for the ps3.

I wonder if, in the actual game, the player regens health like that?  Also, there were still some camera issues in the boss fight.  Other than that, it looks great and I can't wait to play.  Miyazaki is back!

I feel like I'm in the minority here, but this looks dumb.

Wow, this game is going to be epic. Sony is so lucky to has it as an exclusive. This is day one full collectors edition buy for me.

This is my most anticipated game right now, hype level over 100,000

I'm not impressed. They should add gore/dismemberment, make it look more shocking. It looks like a Souls game. Also, they're using almost the same gameplay mechanics over and over again, it's getting old.

Looks amazing, but I expected to see more dismemberments and heads rolling :P

In every new series im getting killed less

Demon Souls i died..prob...10.000 times**i was super stupid back then

Dark Souls much less..maybe 2.000

Dark Souls 2 prob clock around 600-700

Bloodborne prob much less than that

its either im getting better or the game getting easier

nevertheless the graph and atmosphere look fantastic.

looks great. Love the victorian setting, the clothing and the lynching mob. I'm intrigued by this weapon that he wields. It seems to be some multi-purpose tool. This game looks like a pre-order to me :)

Somebody called this a DS 2 reskin and I just wanted to internet slap them.

All the interviews, atmosphere and verticality, clips, animations, enemy/beast/world design, evolution of dodging/health/weapons/combat. New setting, new Lore.

It's the leap we got with DeS to DaS. A proper unique and fresh Souls game. Not just a sequel.

How is there no dismemberment or decapitations in a game called Bloodborn? Give me some removal of limbs and other brutal acts and ill be on board

@marvel456 There is more than you can imagine.  But still not part of the Souls Games.

Sure it's familiar because who the creator is.

@Garm31 No. But I can say that it's Inspired by Demon Souls. After all that as been stated by Yoshida.

@realguitarhero5 You will be able to regenerate health by hitting opponents shortly after they've damaged you to offset the lack of shields in the game. If DS2 is any indication, they'll keep patching this 'till it feels right for them.

@willman61 Im with you. I tried Dark Souls and i can't wrap my head around the fact that it's a popular series. More than anything else that have come out in the past decade I can't rationally explain its success. I like fantasy. I like rpgs. I like action. I like swordfights and i like open endedness. But Dark Souls is a dumb charmless souless (pun not intended) badly realised, ugly, poorly animated series (not that graphics matter that much, after all Minecraft is probabyl the best game of the last ten years and it looks like ass but still). And its fighting mechanics are atrocious. I'm at a loss. I guess that's fine, i don't have to get it. But I kinda wish i did. I mean i don't like, say, COD, but i get why it's popular. I hate Gears of War, but i get why it's popular. This, i just don't.

@mbradk I was thinking that it lacks gore/dismemberments at the same time :P

@Monsterkillah Well considering by the time DS2 came around you had probably come close to mastering the mechanics of the Souls' games, it's not a surprise.

@Joeguy00 It seemed that way at first, but after watching this demo, I now have good feelings about this game.  The atmosphere and graphics look awesome, hopefully they polish it up really well.  On another note, I think the PS4 will end up the best console ever.

@sonyonly4 the only thing they haven't discussed or i haven't seen is the Info on PVP.  Because that's why I love the Souls series!

@Trev786  "other brutal acts" Like elbowing a midget in the face or ripping open a llamas mouth and then crapping inside its torn throat ?

gameroutlawzz

@sonyonly4 @willman61 or tacked-on cinematics and forced A.I. partners dont go bla bla bla...

@Bellum_Sacrum @nicodiaz Childish? With the game's setting it would fit perfectly, and make it more realistic (in a way). The character slices enemies with a cleaver and they remain intact, like ghosts.

I know...most people are prob more skilled after playing the previous series

My only biggest problem are black phantom...they always manage to snub my moment..loosing so many souls and they r insta crit me from some imposable angle**

@gameroutlawzz @sonyonly4 What does guns going pew pew pew or forced cinematics and mindless AI have to do with the fact that in evaluating this game on its merits alone it looks like a boring hack and slash wrapped up in a cumbersome leveling system to distract from the fact that it lacks any real depth.  I'd rather play the new Witcher or get through Skyrim again.

@willman61 @gameroutlawzz @sonyonly4 bashes a masterpiece like this,then praises Skyrim LMAO.  Enjoy your 4783785758372875 872 shallow,copy/pasted empty,soulless caves/dwarven ruins riddled with the same 3-4 lifeless,dumb mobs with one of the worst A.I. ever seen in a game. The easiest casual walk-in-the-park even on insane difficulty dragon priests and dragons end up dying in 2-3 arrows skyrim was so repetitive and shallow,the worst TES game to date.

Sky rim on PC was incredible. He's got a point, aside from the setting it looks kinda boring.

Loved demon and dark souls
