Need to get these up because I'm going to accessing from mobile devices mainly next week and not going to have the apps/facilities unfortunately.

The only true "next gen" title is a remake. What a time to be alive!

Looks fucking awesome

I'm really interested to see what people who loved later Soulsborne games but haven't played DS think of this

I envy those of you who will play this masterpiece on day 1. I will stay away from this thread until i get the game myself.
I'm a little disappointed there isn't a collectors edition for this game though. If there was one i would have bought it day 1 even if i don't intend to buy a PS5 right now.

I have played the original many many times but i want to go in on this one as "blind" as possible. I haven't even watched the second gameplay trailer or character creator and i stayed away from all the info about new features and QOL improvements. I want to be susrprised as much as possible when i play it.

Have fun guys.You all have hearts of gold.

Anyone who’s played Dark Souls 1,2,3 will love it (if they loved them) but people who have only played Bloodborne and Sekiro might be in for an unpleasant surprise... it’s board and sword all the way and far slower paced. I‘m looking forward to that pace again myself. I miss that meditative speed that the older Souls games go at.

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

Can you guys believe it. It's finally happening

FFVII Remake
Demon's Souls Remake

We're here boys. My favorite game(s) of all time.

I'll be refreshing this thread more times than I checked my phone while my wife's in labour.

I guess technically, but that has not impressed me in the slightest, maybe it's the shitty artstyle
Given the scarcity and drought on PC till Cyberpunk giving that baby a try at Max settings on PC is a no brainer. The gameplay is gonna surprise lots of folks too.

Oh man, I can already feel the heat from the Red Dragon burning my face off (which I’ll probably let him do on purpose) as I’m running through the long bridge in Bolataria!
The fire he spews even looks awesome lol!

The only game I’m properly excited for and the reason I pre ordered the Ps5.
I wish I did...I was caught up in the "also on pc / not on pc" shenanigans and failed to preorder, sadly.

Hopefully I'll get my hands on a ps5 before Christmas.

What happens to the old monk if you play offline? Or player population is low?
You fight the old monk NPC, pretty brain dead fight

I suck at Soul's games but I still have fun.
This game is the only reason I kept my PS5 pre order. I expect the game will probably last me until GOW2 comes out lol

Now i understand the uproar of SoC Remake fans. They got nothing right? It feels estranged to me. 12min and not once did they switch between both modes.
- the fucking maneater looks like an ape
- the look of certain bosses, enemies ... you did not change the bosses in SoC? Why now?
- the excessive use of motion blur
- iconic things like the bell of the mind flA*yers gone WTF?
- the torment, lamentation of the wicked lost souls in Tower of Latria
- the lack of ambience ... again in Tower of Latria
- the ugliest gui i´ve seen..

edit: played around with some filters (the game comes with some premade ones)

I think the only mistake they've made is making 'mirror mode' a reward in NG+. A lot of people would likely want to play on that setting immediately to give the game a fresh feel.
