I've avoided anything about this game including the latest trailers, live streams and pre-reviews but this I just have to see, because it has Vinny after all.
 
I play a Knight without clothes, same as Vinny, but I use the increased stamina regen to block instead of roll.
 
Edit: Wow, amazing Quick Look, one of the best of Giant Bomb so far no thanks to incredibly disinterested Brad, but Vinny and Rorie were great.

An hour and a half? Awesome. I never played Demon's Souls, and to be honest it doesn't really look like a game that's for me, but I'm at the very least interested to see it played.

I REALLY REALLY hope the xbox 360 port is comparable to the PS3 version, because I've always wanted to play Demon's Souls so bad but no PS3

Silly Rorie, using edged weapons on skeletons? Have you learned nothing from Demon's Souls?

Use a club, hammer or mace, and they will vanish like snow before the sun.

Can't wait to get my ass kicked by this series all over again. Dark Souls is like Kings Field, Zelda and Silent Hill all rolled into one. Such an amazing experience.

This video is larger than Baldur's Gate*

*In HD, in terms of gigabytes and the little number in front of it denoting how many.

Rorie dies a handful of times and the comments will still say how incomprehensibly fucked up this game obviously is.
 
While the usual death count for a Quick Look is way higher. The comments on those videos will say how it's really hard to talk while playing.  
 
Makes complete sense guys.

I actually didn't have any of those here. I did try a mace, but it did less damage than the spear did so I stopped using it.

Demon's souls had my favorite character creation... EVER. It was so dumb. Good to see it back.

Glad to see some love for this game. It may be a while before I pick it up. Also I like how Rorie is kind of leading this quicklook. I was surprised to hear he liked Demon's Souls. Pretty cool.

Not sure if this is true, but I heard that being hollowed gives a random unknown penalty to your stats.

@Rorie: My bad, I always used blunt weapons on the skeletons in Demon's Souls, as is was super effective.

Is it just me or is the audio mixed at much lower volume than normal?
