I can't tell if this is going to be the greatest thing ever or the greatest disappointment. I wish trailers wouldn't feel the need to be so fucking cute and mysterious and just show me the damn game and how it plays.

Is this smoke and mirrors supposed to excite us? Or is it just hiding a shitty and uninteresting game?

Ugh. Its hard to get too excited.

Voice acting continues to sound hilariously awful. But otherwise I'm still really intrigued about this game. A Demon's/Dark Souls clone but with randomly generated dungeons sounds pretty alright by me.

Assassins creed meets Dark Souls, with Final Fantasy 13 music being played over it? What is going on here?

For those not really following because the trailer isn't all that great.

It's basically Demon's Souls with random generated dungeons and enemies with hints of the future elements just like in Assassin's Creed. There is going to be a strong focus on online, they later showed a bit where 3 players were trying to take down a dragon so a bit of Monster Hunter thrown in there as well.

There is also gameplay footage you can find around but it's basically Demon's Souls.

I'm getting a distinct Resident Evil vibe from the animations and the character movement (that roadie run in particular). So I'm beginning to think this is more Assassin's Creed 1-esque hub world + Resident Evil game play + medieval monsters and setting.

Just having dark fantasy doesn't mean it's like Dark Souls and I'm really not getting that from this trailer at all.

EDIT: Just watched the game play video. This is Resident Evil style movement and fighting, so people need to stop calling it a Dark Souls clone just because there is a dude in a suit of armor.

If it's basically Dark Souls meets Monster Hunter, I don't understand what the Assassin's Creed is doing here. Solid concept if they get the combat and atmosphere right, but honestly I'm more excited for Dark Souls 2. Also, doesn't look as good as the cinematic teaser did.

So, I guess they've taken a page from the Wizardry school of fantasy adventures? Call me crazy, but that concept and the other features described actually make me way less interested in this game.

It's the premise of assassin's creed. Living memories of other people and such.

i think the game looks amazing, they are very close to the original tech trailer (evident when hes fighting the dragon in the end)

and im down for japans take on far future assassins creed stuff.

also, i have to echo what jeff said, the graphics on these games dont really fully play until you see it in person on a tv, its an interesting problem

played the ps4 at an expo, and on a tv those games look much more sharp than what you see on the internet.

Got a bit of a Diablo vibe - conceptually, rather than gameplay wise- using AC's memory stuff instead of portals to hell or whatever the fuck. If it is randomly generated that makes more sense.

I know everyone is saying assassin's creed, but the first thing that came to mind is .hack only instead of it being an mmo the public plays it's an evil corporation or some such thing. The music also really reminds of of the .hack anime. Which is a good thing. That show had amazing music.

So if its online then it would seem more like Sword Art Online, or .hack, not AC.

It's kind of disappointing to see them just rip off another series like this. I mean it looks so much like a Souls game... but I'll still keep an eye on it.

I just assume any game with the Capcom logo will have horrible voice acting and/or terrible convoluted/hammy/self-serious anime-style dialog. If this was an online dungeon crawling game with the combat of Dragon's Dogma, I'd be up for it.

So this game is the opposite of SMT4: you start in future Tokyo and are somehow transported to medieval times.

hmm, online only, this might mitigate some of the factors related to their on disc DLC nonsense

I can see this Animus-like conceit working as an online lobbying system, so in terms of masking mechanics with narrative justification, this works for me. That, and those hot techno jams.

@__pb__: It's basically Assassins Creed, you get objects and touch them and are transported into memories associated with the object, kind of like the animus.

@dvorak: Nah, AC is more accurate those are video games in their respective universes and the multiplayer in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood was justified as it was just a training simulation for Templar agents which while we still aren't sure looks more accurate since the trailer shows big laboratories not some kid pulling out his VR headset.

It reminds me a bit of Dark souls.. Except a bit prettier? (Metal actually looks like metal /o\)

That said i highly doubt it will be as good and whoever directed that trailer should be fired.

@tearunner

: I hope you're trolling.

Because... Dark souls and Demons souls are both made by From Software, which is a Japanese company.. and Japan is in Asia, last time I checked.. so..yeah.

Although in any case, yes this seems like tapping into that market, I suppose you could say it seems similar to Dragon's Dogma too actually... but in any case that's also kinda reminiscent of the "DS" franchise.

I'm still excited about this one. Old Timey parts looked enough like From's Souls games that I'm still stoked. I also liked Dragons Dogma, so they are starting from a net positive in my book. Crappy trailer though.

Strip away all the other scenes, leave the knight and the dragon and you almost have an exact copy of the Deamon's Souls intro movie.

I figured they had tried to pull a killzone with that first "demo". Looks ok graphically though, not as good as a pc game on high but still pretty good. The real bummer is the assassins creed knockoff theme, i was hoping this was just going to be dragons dogma 2, i really loved the combat in that game even if the rest of it was terrible.

Now Im not digging it at all ... :( bummer , I wanted a studio to take a jab at the Soul´s formula , but this futury AC stuff and upbeat music kills it. Now the games needs to be really really good for me to get it. We´ll see.

But, they ARE making another Dragons Dogma, so no worries there. It just they are making another game...this...too. The weird part, that I will have to see to grasp, is how the game's maps are procedurally generated and monsters are randomized, and online co-op with up to three friends is possible. It soudns liek a game where my fiends in my game makes something different than I going into their game. Randomized dungeons & monsters, with graphics that nice would be revelatory.

I thought this was supposed to be like .hack where it's actually a game people in the future are playing. Or something.
