Oversized swords and the physics issue when rolling around in armour, not realistic right? Anyone else notice the snake headed monsters? Its a FANTASY game! Swords are allowed to be oversized and its ok to be able to roll around in armour. It's just a game.

i don't know why, but doesn't it look easier than demons souls? i mean, he should have been dead a million times within the first 3 minutes of the video!

@9uitarman I think that oversized weapons look ridiculous too. But there are a ton of normal sized swords in Demon Souls, all of which are upgraded. That whole physics argument though... buddy can jump off a 20 foot cliff in plate and mail, and get up without a shrug so physics in this fantasy setting aren't a big issue.

@9uitarman, I understand where your coming from and all, but the sword alone shouldn't deter you from a franchise such as this. Demon's Souls was a great game and this only seems to be a better 'copy'

@jprussell that's funny, I was thinking the same thing. Even though, I can't wait to play this!

Looks like too many artists and too little programmers to me

does anyone else find this obnoxiously loud gamecon intro annoying? every time I have to turn down the volume and pause the damn video

@Harxelithn I'm ok with made-up creatures, because the creators usually make the made up creatures follow the same laws of physics that any animal has too. So these made up animals are actually realistic and believable. I mean when a guy swings a giant sword around, that just takes credit away from the game, because that actually does break the laws of physics.

Can't wait to get this game! That said, do the d-pad quick-select icons really need to be that big in the HUD? It takes up way too much space.

@9uitarman Although its your choice and what not, questioning a games physics is retarded, especially since its a FANTASY. Its a game with octopus slug things and snake people, yet out of all these make believe things, the sword size seems unrealistic... Its from a japanese producer, so its "anime" style is more of the eastern style. If americans did it, they would have a more western style (not cowboys and indians)

This game reminds me of Ninja Gaiden (mentor/Master Ninja) and Otogi.

i love how the player is so obviously using the wrong kit for the "evade" tactic they're talking about.

black ops makes me rage more than this, at least when you die in Demon Souls you know its your fault, just by looking at this game, i know that i'm definitely more hyped for this than MW3.

I can not wait. It's predecessor was one of the best games of this generation. I am so, so glad that they didn't make the game easier and more "accessible" which I'd say is another phrase for more "marketable". I applaud them for sticking to their guns and dishing out a great, tough experience that they have envisioned.

That looks fantastic! This is easily my most anticipated game of the year.

@supertom221 I wouldn't get too excited - the character looks pretty leveled up. I'm willing to bet that when you first start playing you'll be dying a lot.

Also, this game actually looks easier than Demon's Souls... the Health bar is huge, and enemies don't make as much damage. I mean, You'd expect that when you fight monstrous ice giants in the forest, they'll do some major damage, but they only took bits with each hit. Then again, he WAS surrounded by them, and this IS a stage demo, the final product will probably be much more Brutal.... And it seems like the game has a Jump button. awesome. Needed that back in DS. ALOT

My god, that stage demo looks Amazing!! The Snake monsters are RAAD!! This looks ALOT better than the enemies in Demon Souls!! Also that Armor is pretty badass!.

@JJB03 You're not supposed to evade everything... And if you do, it's not supposed to be easy to do so... *sigh* This is why I hate games like these going Multiplatform... All the X360 fanboys are saying the game doesn't work right or makes it too hard to do stuff..... Get a PS3, play Demon's Souls, and shut up.

maybe if the charecter didnt have some ricdiculous hench sword that he has to carry around using his shoulder then you would have a better chance at evading everything

There must be some copyright issue for them to push Dark Souls as a "new" IP. Either way I'm going to play the crap out of this game.
