If only it didn't have the horrible Warhammer/Blizzard art style.

I'm curious as to how much this will relate to Zelda (as has been claimed). Right now it looks like a Souls-like with current gen graphics but worse design and less inspired.

So its Dark Souls with Warhammer 40K armor?

...tell me more.

That generic name is really not doing the game any favors. I've only seen it's footage yesterday and already forgot what the game itself was called.

By look pretty I assume alex means average and generic. Cause I honestly didn't see a single thing in this that seemed compelling or interesting or unique. Played so many fantasy action rpgs and this one seems as bland as they come.

Looks VERY similar to the Witcher 2, especially the HUD. Sounds interesting though.

Also, the narrator talked funny.

Looks inspired by Dark Souls without the sorts of things that turn me off to that series. I'll probably play it when it comes out.

Looks promising. I love it when stuff like this comes out of left field (seemingly. I just heard of it)

I had trouble placing the accent, but evidently it's Polish. Tomasz Gop was a senior producer on Witcher 2, which would also explain the influence.

Looks pretty interesting to me. The details (especially some of the animations) are very Dark Souls-y but the broad strokes of the game seem more inspired by something like Dragon Age. Whether all of this will come together remains to be seen but they seem to me to have their hearts and heads in the right place.

If the combat doesn't get repetitive and it isn't too easy this could be worth a look.

Maybe it was just for demo purposes, but that boss seemed pretty straightforward. I hope the actual game will be a bit more dangerous.

Also, pretty twirly sword dance looks nice.

@sasnake: I sure have and I sure hate it. I guess I should just say Warhammer because that's where Blizzard got most of its ideas but still.

It looks like Zelda with too much emphasis on combat, or Dark souls without enough emphasis on combat, all under the umbrella of a horribly trite and cliche fantasy world. Count me out, sorry.

@hassun: I get the Warhammer comparison, but Blizzard? It's not colorful and not chunky enough.

A much better-looking version of Dark Souls for next-gen and PC? Sold.

Yeah I could be down for this. I would like for a lot more games to take ques from dark souls. But not to many.

"Pre-alpha build" with that smooth of a framerate. What a bunch of horse shit.

So, am I the only one who enjoys the souls games (and the rest of From Software's back catalogue) for their nearly Ingmar Bergman-esque extremely bleak and depressing tone rather than the combat?

I mean, the combat is fine and all, but that's not why I play those games - rather I play them to get away from the constant empowerment and "you're the good guy, you're doing the right thing!!" stuff from every other game today.

There are certainly worse games to take inspiration from, but I'd rather see others take inspiration from their narrative and atmosphere than the mechanics.

The lack of response from either the player or enemies when they get hit really puts me off of this game. It could be cool, but it looks like a pretty shameless dark souls rip off.

@fisk0: Nah you're not alone. I'm not the biggest fan of Bergman (prefer Resnais, gna gna gna gna), but I love the Bermanesque mood of Dark Souls. It felt unique and how the gamepley being hard inform it is really well done.

CI Games = City Interactive if anyone doesn't know

Anyway, I wasn't interested in this until now, but the combat looks pretty good. Graphics are dope. Nice animations.

City Interactive does not have a good track record, and I can already imagine how terribly cliched the story/universe will be, but games with similar problems can still be fun.

EDIT: It turns out they are collaborating with Deck13, the makers of Venetica, Ankh, and Blood Knights. I'm not sure what to make of that. I know Blood Knights is almost universally hated, but Venetica is apparently okay.

I think it looks pretty good so far, esp. for a pre-alpha .

Because of Tomeks' voice, I immediately think of Witcher though.

It's not just how bleak the world is for me, it's more about just how extremely well realized it is.

Boletaria and Lordran feel more like real places than the vast majority of game worlds.

I'd think (hopefully, at least) that there'll be at least a few games released on PS4 before fall 2014, which seems to be the release 'date' for this game.

Either way, looks quite pretty!

Weirdly enough, I'm getting more of a Darksiders feel out of this. Eh. I'll keep an eye on it. I do like me some action RPGs.
