From GAF:

I don't want to make a new thread but there is Dark Souls preview by GamesTM, March 2011.

Quote
"Miyazaki wants the players to experience tens of thousands, or millions of deaths."

"The combat remains largely unchanged from Demon's Souls, while the team concentrates on improving the elements of role-playing and exploration."

"You are no longer [able] to pick a character class from the start. Instead you are allowed to equip any armour or weapon you like, prising the potential for customisation wide open."

"There are over 100 weapons, and players will be able to cycle through them in real time. A wider range of magic spells is also available."

"Miyazaki is careful to point out that the game isn't ttruly open-world as some media outlets have reported, but it will be less compartmentalised than Demon's Souls. There's still a hub - a campdire within a ruined castle - but you'll be able to leave through your choice of exits and work through the interconnected levels. We're told that you'll be able to travel to any location you can see in the distance."

"Secret routes and locations have also been discussed. From Software inadvertently reveals one to us in a place aptly named Trap Road"

"Player death does not have him transform into a ghost, but instead he finds himself in an alternate part of the area and discovers a tunnel to a secret location. Miyazaki is keen to point out the tunnel leads to an even harsher environment as punishment for slipping off the rail and dying."

"We are trying to provide an experience one or two steps ahead of what we did for Demon's Souls."

"Dark Souls introduces mid-level bosses that can pursue you in unprecedented ways, leaping over walls and climbing buildings to reach you."

I really regret looking at that latest batch of pics, must've spoiled at least half the bosses in the game. I'm looking forward to E3 but I'll really have to avoid most of the footage that will be shown for some games.

I can not wait for this game!  I love Demons Souls and it was one of my favorite games in the past few years, maybe ever. 

Anyone know what they are doing with the online part of the game? While Demons Souls online is great, I think alot of tweaking could be done and more modes could be added.

I really dig the look.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

I believe this will scare me even more than Demon's Souls did :(

This does indeed look pretty freaking awesome, I foresee quite a few days of nothing but sore fingers and blurry vision from playing waaaay too much when I get this!

I'm kind of sad Bamco is publishing this one.  Atlus should get the credit for taking the chance on the first one, localizing it and making it a hit in the states.  They should have been the one to publish this game and enjoy the continued success since they took all the risk bringing this series to us but now that the series has an audience, Bamco outbids them, because they are a more wealthy publisher and will now buy in to what they see as a surefire cashcow. 

I just hate to support the company that deems the Tales series unworthy for America, although FromSoftware definitely deserves success.

The Pacts you make in Dark Souls determine who your Online Friends and Foes are:

While you're exploring the world, your character will have opportunities to make pacts with people, presumably non player characters, and other things. These pacts are not like joining a guild or a team in a MMORPG. You will make multiple pacts in Dark Souls and these guide how you roleplay with your character. Players will naturally find pacts in the game, although some pacts are rare and difficult to find.

Pacts have an effect when you play online. Since you have to decide whether to support or not support a side certain players will be friends and others foes. Even though player choice is a key part of Dark Souls, the game does not have a deep story. You play as an immortal, a fitting character type since the producer emphasized there is no safe zone in Dark Souls, who has left society on his or her own accord.

I still haven't finish Demon's Souls, but I see that I still have to fight against giant mid-bosses and final bosses again. Thank god I'm a masochist who enjoys a good challenge. :T
