Never played a souls game but I think I have to jump in with this. Love the world they built and the enemy designs.

Yay! Missed this live.

Blood maketh the man, blood breaketh the man.

The textures in that screen cap are certainly something else.

...Oh, I'll shut up. I'm still sour that this isn't on PC. I know why it's not on PC. But still sour.

The chat for this one was pretty awful (as usual, I guess). The QL was entertaining, though! Thanks for doing it live.

Bradborne's more like it.

I fell asleep during this one, woke up and it was still on :\

The character creator sure is... flexible.

Stay until the end to witness the majesty of the character creation tools.

Aaaagh! To watch this now, or just wait and experience at least the first few hours myself before doing so. Decisions, decisions...

This game is hella good. The changes to "remove" magic, ranged, and shield/tank styles (from what I have seen in playing and this) is too bad, but at the same time they are trying to build a different kind of game.

Thats a big quick look! :)

Jason is right on picking up the Berserk homage. I'm pretty sure the creators are big fans of Berserk.

Got nothing on the Elder Scrolls Online QL!

Holy hell this freaking game. Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 weren't that bad but this game is made by some sadistic ass people. It's great but jesus I was not prepared for the difficulty

Impressive job by Brad to one-shot the Undead Giant. Saw some streamers have some trouble with him.

Go back and watch Vinny's Load Our Last Souls. Rorie is not "well versed in souls" as Brad says.

Posted by 2HeadedNinja

I really miss Vinny-less podcasts, I would love to hear what he thinks about the game (if he had the chance to try it yet)

The camera on this is relay bad. I never get motion sickness but I can not watch this, not the gore just the movemetnt

Yeah this looks pretty awesome. Hopefully it makes it's way onto Steam at some point (probably a fool's hope).

That's the biggest bummer to me about this compared to the other Souls games. I just can't imagine there will be a ton of diversity in builds, which kind of reduces the replay value for me. I always liked to play some sort of melee first and then switch to a magic user my second playthrough for a very different experience. But I guess in some ways pvp might be more balanced in this game with the limited build set, although it seems like it will also be somewhat lacking in variety.

Yeah being able to use magic, pyromancy, and even pure bow runs was awesome in the souls games. Bloodborne seems like you have your badass transforming weapon + gun and that's about it. It makes sense in the world they're making I guess but now there won't really be builds anymore. My fear knowing this now is that I will just pump strength + skill to high enough levels where I can use all the weapons, play with them all and be done with the game. Seems a little backwards to me in that regard. Who knows though, maybe beast mode (whatever that is) can make up for it.

Yeah, I feel like I'm going to get just as much out of the game as the previous souls games given that I'd only do one or two playthroughs and maybe some NG+, but I always loved seeing the build variety or challenge runs from people on Twitch/Youtube. The weapon variety is pretty cool from the little I've played, but I'm hard pressed to see something I'd do on a subsequent run that would be wildly different like an all-magic build and it feels like the game is going to have less legs in the long run because of it.

Is it just me or is the framerate poor on this video? Seems weird.

I know the game looks better than this.

The game has weird framerate stuttering problems, and not a stable 30 fps framerate. I didn't notice any big problems in the video.

Jason is quickly becoming my favorite person on Giant Bomb. He's got super good taste in games.

hmm... It's not as bad later in the video, but it definitely looks odd versus what I've seen of the game elsewhere. :\

Maybe it's a Flash thing, but I wonder.

@truthtellah: Who knows. I didn't notice anything watching it in the HTML5 player though.
