Oh my, the gameplay video is just over 20 minutes away.

Rookie move. Who uses a bow on a giant monster when he's that close! WHY DOESN'T HE HAVE HIS SHIELD UP!?!?
I like how my first thoughts when looking at that screenshot also amounted to "what in the world is that guy doing" before "look how cool that is", too. Hahaha...

I watched a couple of minutes and that was enough, I don't want to spoil anymore when one of the best parts of these games is exploration. But what I saw looked great, thankfully they seem to be keeping the same kind of combat system rather than making any drastic changes.

I can't see anything wrong with the video at all. I'm very much onboard the "shut up and take my money" train!

People were only worried about the earlier interview bits. There's always the possibility that they'll still do stuff in-game to disappoint us (I almost count on it actually, it's just a matter of how extreme it is), but it does appear they're staying quite true to Demon's Souls and Dark Souls thus far.

Yeah, we're not in the clear just yet, of course - as much as we'd all like that. But the video looked just fine. I'm still going to just... pretend that everything will be okay :3

Actually I should clarify it: when I said I "count on it", it's because there's always going to be some entry that's your favorite, or you think the new game isn't QUITE as good, even hit Dark Souls versus Demon's Souls. But if it's mild it's just "Dark Souls 2 is pretty good but I liked 1 more", and I'm realistically expecting that's more or less how it'll go after that video.

Well, I'm sold. Whatever differences their will be will likely be as minor as those between Dark Souls and Demon Souls. So minor everyone forgot about them pretty quickly.

Well I finally played like over 50 hours of Dark Souls like people on this thread told me too and I liked it. I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm a fan because there are a lot of flaws on a technical level that can easily be fixed in the sequel. Which is why I'm excited to see what they have to offer in the sequel. Also, I disagree with Rob when he said that less back-tracking is bad in a Souls game because sometimes it was such a pain to go through 10-20 minutes of an area to get to a Bonfire when I haven't been to Anor Londo, which I still can't find to this day.
