Are they trying to unsell us on the game with these? I don't get it, they are so terrible.

Yeah, they are not that great. It is pretty much impossible to unsell me on this game though.

Having just gotten into Demon's Souls last month and being highly addicted, I cannot wait for this game!

Neato?
 
The furtive pygmy?
 
What?

Posted by Korolev

The first monster (neato? is that how you're supposed to spell it? Neeto? Neto?) looks pretty awesome. Reminds me of the Nasaghast from Dr. McNinja - even the pose where he holds a flame in his hand looks very similar. http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/21p01/

It's probably a co-incidence.

What? Don't you have a furtive pygmy? They're great! They clean up around the house and stuff. Sometimes make meals. You should totally look into getting one if you can afford it.

The art direction is what really draws me towards this game, despite the fact that I have no money and would likely break all of my controllers playing it, I can't help but look at this and think that I want to give it a shot

That's a lot of dramatic posing over a bit of fire that could be produced by a candle.
 
From Software's an amazing developer and I'll never forget the fun I've had with the Tenchu series.

Man, I can't wait.

I hope the moral ambiguity from Demon's Souls is in. I remember the first time I got to Maiden Astrea, and she just sat there. I actually felt guilty. She didn't seem evil, at all. She just wanted to help the suffering.

Of course i still killed her. I wanted that soul.

How did From Software get so good? 
 
I'm serious - I've been watching them. And they've been pumping out Armored Core titles regularly for at least a decade, as well as the occasional original, interesting experiment like Lost Kingdoms, Otogi, Ninja Blade, Enchanted Arms and Metal Wolf Chaos. Nothing too earth-shattering or memorable (well, Metal Wolf Chaos is pretty unforgettable!). But all of a sudden, with Demon Souls, they seem to have stepped up their game somewhat. And Dark Souls is starting to look world-class now. WTF? How did they just will themselves to become suddenly much, much better? And can they please share their secret with some other Japanese developers wallowing in PSP and DS development? 
 
I rented Demon's Souls, never bought it. But I'm totally onboard for this one. Can't wait!

I thought I heard that.  I had to watch again to confirm.
 
Confirmed for HWUT?

I liked this better without dialouge, I think. They should cultivate a cloud of mystery, not dispel it. But I guess we still don't really know what's up. I really enjoy understated and environmental storytelling! I didn't play it a lot, but I feel like Demon Souls did that well. It was mysterious. And weird! Hope they don't get too explicit with story stuff in Dark Souls.

I agree. Everyone always says Demon's Souls has hardly any story, but I totally disagree with that. It has a lot of story its just not explicitly told to you. It's in the environments and enemy design, in the names of the Demons, etc. This, for me at least, made the game a lot more immersive because I really felt like a dude who just got dropped in a foreign land that all sorts of bad shit has happened to. I hope Dark Souls can get that feeling down again.

@Kratch: Exactly! Well put! This is something games do really well, and I wish more games would try this approach, instead of being 20 hour long b-movies. (Although there's nothing wrong with being cinematic as long as it's done well, like in Uncharted, for example)

@metalsnakezero: Pygmy? is that what she's saying, I think I need some closed captioning on this trailer.

@Korolev: Good to see a Dr. McNinja fan. Nice call on the similarity. Nasaghasts should be black phantoms.
