    I'm going to have to finish the video later, but my initial impression is: Holy shit, it's Soulsborne Zero Dawn! :kingcomrade:

    I was gonna jump and say that I don't like the map, but it seems that the map is just a huge mass of nothing really. It's just there for you to place your own markers. Which is fine.

    Game looks great otherwise.

    Also... The Way of the Dragon is back, baby! I can FINALLY go monk-mode, and not look like a fucking ponce!

    What's the lore justification for this fantasy theme-park?

    Why don't you send a fan letter to Vaatividya and ask him to hurry up with his newest wank piece?

    No matter what you guys say, it's dispiriting that these guys are clearly not pushing the envelope even a little bit here, considering all the amazing innovations that the Souls series brought.

    Day one purchase as well, even in the case its not as great as dark souls, there's nothing to play nothing to look forward , so i want it now too. What i'd like to know is if the difficulty level is similar , or if its easier so i can let the nephew play this one.

    You can only blame yourself for having set unreasonable expectations.

    It was clear from the start that this was going to be Dark Souls 4 under a different name. They just wanted to build a world without being restrained by the lore already established by the series, and that's what they did.

    What kind of argument is this supposed to be?

    The ideas behind ER might be rehashed (as they have been every single time after Demon's Souls), but the game still comes with new content. And, apparently, people are starved for this kind of content. Everyone is out there buying souls clones, at least with ER you know you're buying an Official Clone™. The gameplay of the previous entries is fun and works, what's wrong with wanting more of the same?

    Don't know how I feel about the open world. Generally I don't like them and it looks a bit empty but at least it's not some Skyrim bullshit where your eyes are fixed on the compass while trying to avoid trees and rocks on your way to the quest marker.

    It's Dark Souls 4 asset reuse and all. It does look pretty though. Sure, I'll buy it whatever.

    This looks so ... underwhelming, somehow. I am even less hyped now.

    It's not even this, it looks like DS4 wannabe, but poisoned with everything bad that was in Sekiro, also with a retarded color palette.

    -Love the greater emphasis on exploration and scouting of areas. I can definitely see myself asking myself: "I wonder if I can get there by jumping from over here"

    -I do hope there are enough open world interactions so it doesn't feel like going from point of interest to point of interest

    -the color palette is striking, lighting looks great, I loved the autumnal scene

    -combat seems to be more of the same, with each weapon having more unique weapon arts

    -overall, I'm not over the moon, but it does look like this will be like Demon Souls but with each region interconnected

    Why is this in jRPG Weeaboo subforum anyway? This game is more Western RPG than even Bioware's recent output.

    Because Codex is racist, though Dark Souls is 12th in its All-time TOP-101 of RPGs.

    So far they've only showed one region. Apparently there's 6 including a snowy one. If every region is as big as this one, complete with underground tunnels, mines, caves, catacombs etc. then fun times on the horizon I spy.

    Same way they're gonna explain the grace and the golden light and all that. Maybe the Tarnished can manipulate grace once they have some of it and can manifest it in various ways.

    Edit: you don't need a lore deep dive video on every single thing. "My character took a step forward, what does it mean? Help me Vaati!"

    Most often now that's where we put good games, and the subforum is not contaminated by the mainstream crowd. Many games here are far better than the GRPG ones.
