    Weird that the leaked info had some gameplay while E3 was a trailer - nothing about it really informs what it might end up being. This might not be the (spiritual) successor to DS, hell might not be souls-like at all. More than fine with that...

    This is true

    I think the souls comparisons were drawn from the leaked footage having fog doors etc like the sould games

    Hyped already. If they retain Souls combat in that awesome Gothic looking world then I'm all in. As a side note, I'd love a more traditional RPG with souls combat. A game where you get quests and explore a diverse open world rather than everything be out to kill you in a dark gloomy world.

    That would be absolutely immense, I'd be all over that.

    I want a Souls western, I think that setting and the animals/natives and nomadic nature would work really well with the Souls formula...

    I dont mind gothic but I feel Souls has pretty much done that justice

    A bit more variety to the combat this time pls. I'll probably get strung up for saying this, but I'm getting bored of the Demon's/Dark Souls combat now. More usable/effective, dodges, rolls, parries, combos, crowd control etc. Don't get me wrong - it's great, but it could be so much more.

    Think this is exactly what the "series" needed, a detailed and rich environment in a eerie gothic city with untold beasts lurking behind every door! From the e3 trailer the game seems to differ greatly from the souls games but from the gameplay leaks seems familiar. Perhaps a mash of the two.

    Whilst not clear are we getting a set character or will there be customisation options? creating your own character / upgrading is a important part of souls games.

    Nice, can see why they chose to show it behind closed doors as is very early (framerate issues etc as expected this early). Couldn't ask for more, that looks like everything I could have asked for.

    Kind of bumbed about no shield, that puppy kept me alive so many times!

    It's a Souls-type game, it's almost guaranteed to have framerate issues at some point!

    And I agree that the lack of a shield will be a big change. Like most people I use the shield a lot when I first meet enemies so I can try to learn their attacks. Without a shield we'll just have to be a lot more aggressive.
