    A: Will still have the dark souls spirit that is the way we tell stories, look into small details and imagine story yourself

    A: wanted to bring life to the game, dive deep into the world

    Q: Accessibility vs. old fans

    Yeah, it unfortunately sounds like they are a bit away from release. The demo was awesome. Love the different variations of death. Love the idea to deflect giant axes with a giant sword. The concept of using a torch for light tells me an entire area (i.e. tomb of giants) will probably be in the game. Oh I $#@!ing hated that tomb.

    Stoked for this game. Day one for sure.

    $#@!ing awesome love it, great way to reveal the game properly. The lighting looks so much better and it just looks like a generally evolved Souls game with the same core aspects.

    I spose that was running on a PC. It will surely come out on PS4 around the same time or shortly after and will be one of those cross gen games I'm not sure when to get or for what platform

    $#@! yea. I loved the death cameos at the end lol.

    The game looks fantastic as expected, the lighting is a clear upgrade in what we saw in DkS. Some of the environments they showed looked better than anything in DS/DkS which is some accomplishment! So glad they reassured us that they will not be dumbing down the game experience as that is often a lure the more popular a franchise gets.

    Yay@estus flasks <3

    Btw they haven't mentioned it as a PS4 title but it would be nice considering the FPS didn't look too hot in the video. Expecting a few blighttown areas in this one lol

    Some speculation on Gaf was that since the original director of Demons/Dark Souls isnt working on Dark Souls II he is possibly working on Demons Souls II for PS4. Since Sony owns the Demons Souls IP that would mean it would be exclusive and Xbox owners wouldnt get a taste of Souls next gen until Dark Souls III. That would be quite the megaton if true but dont count on it.

    Highly, highly doubt it. Doesn't even make sense as speculation. Demon's Souls is probably dead for good.

    Whatever does happen though, I hope Sony doesn't let the Demon's Souls IP just die. It'd be an exclusive and is surely money on the table considering the love the Souls games generally get

    Thinking about it again though, it would make sense for there to be a PS4 version of DkS II. If it is indeed out in 2014 I'm sure there will be a lot of people preferring to play it on next gen hardware.

    Watched the gameplay video again. In the mood for DkS now lol

    No.

    Unless they add a "Don't want to kill yourself or hate gaming forever?" mode. And yes I am "what's wrong with gaming high horse bladdyblah blah blah" - but I actually prefer to get a challenge AND to have fun with my games.

    Something I noticed right away is the lock-on system is still awful. The player is missing an enemy the size of a hippo, with an 8 foot long sword, from a metre away.

    Thanks for the kind words... Didn't try Dark Souls - was too put off by Demon's Souls.

    I found that the game eases up considerably once you just get to grips with it. You reach this kind of eureka moment and from there on out you stop thinking of the game as hard or difficult, rather it's you that just needs to adapt with what your faced with. Despite being a serious test of your patience, the game is incredibly fair!

    You have played demons souls though so you definitely know what is up. But for those that are put off just by how hard the game seemingly is, don't be

    That is a better description of Demon's Souls than Dark Souls I think. Dark Souls is very unfair at certain points, it likes to pull the $#@! move on you. But it's also a lot less difficult than Demon's and the nature of the save points is way more forgiving. I'd like DkS 2 to be closer to Demon's.

    As much as I hate this game, I want to start playing it again.... but I have a question...did they quit supporting Demons Souls servers? Are the Dark Souls servers still up? I want to start playing again and wondering if i should just jump to Dark souls instead of Demons Souls

    Demon's Souls servers are still up and running, despite being faced with the axe several times. It was recently released on PSN, so the servers will likely be up for some time yet

    Dark Souls doesn't use dedicated servers

    Like I did with Dark Souls, and regret that I didnt do with Demon's Souls, I will preorder this ASAP. Hopefully this time we get a steelbook, and not a steeltin.

    Also, about Demon's Souls servers:
    Demon's Souls will not be denied as publisher Atlus announced today that it will support the game's online features for the "foreseeable future."
