    Intrigued by this, hopefully PS5 and XSX release is a given!

    Excellent gaming forum that doesn't talk much about games. :). I've noticed it even more lately where games are definitely in the back seat.

    Today instead of anyone mentioning this promising looking game we have...

    Virus
    Cycling
    Press ups
    Trump
    Movies
    News articles
    Wokeness
    TV
    Football

    So it's more a current events discussion forum.

    What would you like to discuss about the half second flashes of gameplay we've seen?

    Yeah, that does look pretty great. Not alot to comment on though at the minute as I dont really know fuck all about it other than it looks a bit Dark souls-ish.

    I liked the bit where he hit that guy with the sword.

    I for one wasnt expecting any swords in the next generation. I expected entirely new weapons to be created.

    Looks like a shit Dark Souls knock-off with bits cobbled together from established franchises. What's to talk about? Looks generic as fuck.

    Looks very Dark Souls indeed. I'm not fussed about that, though. I've a growing sense that From Software have lost their way (though maybe Elden Ring will prove me wrong), so having more people making good Soulslikes would be fine with me.

    ... Don't know how you can be so wrong.

    FromSofts last three games - Bloodborne, Dark Souls 3 & Sekiro are some of (if not the) best games this generation.

    Not sure what's so special? Some moody landscapes, some swinging swords. Hopefully fun to play.

    It looks pretty but eh, there's not really much there to form an opinion on. Never heard of the dev before either. I'm reckoning it'll be another alright but janky soulslike.

    There's also a near twenty minute developer interview I've now watch on YouTube ign with gameplay playing nearly the whole time. Looks like it could be a bit pants, the animations seemed off.

    A twitch gamer I watch who mainly plays Dark souls has been playing a few hours of this.

    It's very Dark souls. Got me more interested in it though.

    Fucking hell this is hard.

    Starting to get the hang of it now, the harden mechanic takes a bit of getting used to. This game is very very from like. Also there is a boss you can fight just off to the right after the first pack you fight. He is quite easy and will give you a chance to get used to using harden and dodge.

    After a chunk of play its still really fucking hard, actually harder than a dark souls game. The idea that you take over other bodies to play as rather than finding loot is interesting and the second one you find was pretty good to play as. The graphics and animation are excellent and the sound seems good as well. I'm just not sure I am good enough to get very far although I missed the bit of the tutorial where it explained about healing so that probably didn't help. I think they may actually tone the difficulty down a bit before launch though but maybe its just me that's struggling as I'm a bit out of practise with soulsbourne games.

    No it definitely seems pretty hard, although I think some of that is just getting used to the new mechanics. It has piqued my interest though.

    Yeah me too. They need to make it more obvious when harden comes off of cool down though.

    I like the look of this. I keep saying that Iíll play Darksouls 1-3 but the newer stuff always looks more appealing.

    I was listening to this earlier:

    Played about 15 minutes... this game is harsh! I cannot get used to the harden mechanic at all and everything hits so hard.

    Managed to hit a boss? And he just ripped through my harden and destroyed me... guess I donít go that way.
