    That's good 'cause who the fuck wants GoT the problem is that it's basically the same shit they have done before.

    I don't mind reused assets, animations or gameplay features. That's par per course with Japanese games. But i'm not sure i want to go through another 200 hours of Bear Seek Seek Lest. I'm kinda burned out of those waifu characters and they are in every frikking game they have made and this one looks even more generic.

    Imo biggest disappointment is the overall art direction. Playing it very safe. A lot of the enemies, weapons and armour sets could pass for ds3 material, or re-imagined ds2. Much of the trailer feels like re-treading old ground.
    If indie stuff like Blashpemous can carve out a strong, distinct art style to stand apart from the crowd, I'm not sure why a project of such ambition and resources can't.

    Fuck keeping fall damage low. Better to do this through spells, scrolls, enchants, equipment, etc. Ever since Oblivion we've had to put up with fantasy games/RPGs doing shit in the most bland basic way possible

    If you buy it on release, I guess. If you wait too long, it will be nerfed into oblivion in successive patches.

    They should reach a balance where magic is neither too overpowered nor unviable.

    That's longer than it took for me to do a first playthrough of some of the souls games (think I clocked 20 to finish DS2 main game before reaching into DLC content). Sounds about the right length. Dunno why people keep expecting Ubishit/Witcher 3 collectathon from From Software. I don't want a game in which I need 100 hours just to see the main content anyway.

    I'm personally not a fan of the game apparently having crafting and crafting materials. More often than not I feel like RPGs with crafting don't offer enough rewards/items/unlocks to warrant the game having 5000 loot containers with 5000 different materials you need to keep track of.
    Apparently Sekiro had crafting, but I skipped that game since at the time it was released I was still burned out from FROM games after finishing Dark Souls 3. How's the crafting in Sekiro? I figure that Elden Ring's crafting system likely will be somewhat similar to that of Sekiro since it's their most recently released game.

    Played DS2 on release before they nerfed faith builds to the ground and I happened to play a faith build. It's had to put into words how OP faith was before the nerfs. Lightning spear made you a better sorcerer than sorcerers.

    No, it's just an upgrade system. You use materials for prosthetics upgrade tree.

    What apparent is they are still terrible at animating facial expression. Also they always go for similar art style that even Sekiro seems like a spider with long thin arms.

    So it's just like in all the other Souls games? In that case I suppose the "crafting system with materials" part very well just could mean the exact same thing. That's a relief.

    Also, art style is disappointing, since it basically looks like DS 3.
    And that horse jumppad in the trailer, wtf?

    To be fair it's not only about the colours, but also about the designs in general. I can't quite describe how but since the PS4 games FROM has had a very distinctive way of designing NPC and enemy models. If you showed me these pictures from the Elden Ring trailer and told me they were from Dark Souls 3 I'd definitely believe it.

    Easy. Uncannily gangly limbs, narrow shoulders (for people), tiny heads, often look emaciated or dessicated. Really quite ugly imo, and weird. Not in a good way.

    I thought it was just for Bloodborne, to give it it's own idiosyncratic look. Then they brought it back for DS3 and I was like fuck me this is Muhzaki's signature style now, isn't it?

    Based on the trailer: not any more fun than in ds3. Spamming soul arrows is really old. I wish the cool spells were viable in any way, but that is not the way of from.

    Half the point of these mole-poppers is graphics, right?

    Then what the hell are they thinking giving it PS4 graphics. The chunky hair, low resolution textures everywhere... and I play games on hardware that is 7 to 10 years old!
