It's kind of odd that this leaks soon after the media starts tentatively reporting on the original screenshots.

I swear the leaker is trolling us.

This is the first time in a long time I've been actively daydreaming about the content I'll be experiencing within a game.

Shhhh don't say A team or people will get upset ;)
I mean, it is what it is. I don't know what they intended for Dark Souls 2 anymore, and my friends tell me it's still a pretty decent game, but I couldn't support it after everything I heard about it. The bugs, the visual and gameplay downgrades, the various idiosyncratic problems. It just seemed like it was a real shady way of doing things.

At the very least, now they indisputably have the system power to be able to complete a vision commensurate to what they're showing right now, so I hope they don't later have excuses again.

But the fact it's the A-team really makes me excited about its chances.

Gushing? I remember him hating demons souls and calling it unbelievably bad.
He said when he first played it he didn't get it, and said it was a bad game. He said on a podcast Demon / Dark Souls were his second favourite game of the generstion.

According to him seeing the enjoyment people had watching Dark Soul's streams is why streaming was a big feature on PS4.

I remember the original leaker saying he saw the footage in a private industry stream.

Makes me wonder why he'd share it though, not many people seem to have had access to that. Just look at all the gaming websites reporting the rumor. They don't know anything about it themselves.

he went through that phase most Demon's Souls players go through, getting stuck in 1-1 for hours and not giving it enough time to click.

At least i hope that was it lol

He played a rough build of the game and never made it past the first boss. Other gaffers have said the game was rough at the TGS when it was demoed. When the game was released Shu went back to it and felled in love with it making it one of his top favorite games. Other gamers have had the same reaction as him so you can't really blame him for his first impression.

It took 3 or so hours before Dark Souls really clicked for me.

The first few were spent lost and still getting used to the controls/combat.

I was also grasping at the fact that the game has high expectations of the players and hands them just enough tools to figure it out themselves. That's a far cry from many other games I played until that point.

Games are pitched to publishers. Games aren't conceived of as exclusives, the platforms are determined by the publisher. Epic didn't decided to make a new game bringing elements of KillSwitch and RE4 for the 360, they just decided to make the game, and when MS picked it up, the platform was decided.

All exclusives are denying the game to a larger audience, if the decision is made day one, or three years later.

EDIT: Except games developed by the first parties, of course.
nope. you're implying that 2nd party = 3rd party, which is not the case. there is a distinct difference between the two

Hey man, I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss any other source aside from the 4chan post. There was no "rumor" on the thread title so I thought I had missed some sort of official announcement.

No, I am not implying that.

I am saying that in the case of both 'second' and third party exclusives, the first party is paying for a game and limiting it's potential audience. It is not 'ethically' different at all.

Haha, this is pure gold - I have to know the story behind this, anyone?

France-Ukraine match. World Cup qualifier. Ribery is French but tymoschuk is Ukrainian. They both played together at Bayern munich.

Well, I'm wrong. It's for the Euros. It's written on the banner right behind the players.

I assume they also own equity in the game, I.e, a share of the profit...

I remember the interview saying it was a near final build when he did not like it. I'll respond when I am not on my phone.

It had framerate issues and the networking features weren't running yet. I'm not sure why it really matters at this point. He's made it very clear for several years now that he really likes the series.

"this is crap". S. Yoshida on Demon's Souls when he first tried it
http://kotaku.com/5884268/this-is-crap-sonys-chief-of-development-said-after-first-playing-demons-souls

yes, at first he didn't like it - when he first tried it. But he has admitted Sony and himself "dropped the ball" with DeS and I guess the souls series grew on him since.I read several times he became a fan of the Souls games.

I believe Sony did stuff like pay for DeS' servers when FROM annouced they were shutting them down so they probably had a long (priviledged ?) working relationship together.
