Agreed. Though I'm curious as to why 80% of that trailer is DkS1 footage. I guess I'd rather it be that, than a bunch of spoilers.

Really wasn't too impressed with that commercial. I feel like it paints the wrong image. But I can't quite point out why.

I thought that was pretty terrible, honestly. And yeah, much of that footage is from Dark Souls. The narrator was terrible. The clip at the end with the dragon looked like it was from a late 90s PC RPG cutscene...

Doesn't change my opinion of the game, of course. It's just poor marketing.

The trailer could have started with "In a world...with Darkness... and Souls... and death, One man..."

The sad part is, because they used the cinematic portions from the first DS, the gameplay footage from DSII did'nt look so hot. It's something about the lighting I feel. Either way a bad trailer will not lessen my excitement.

I hear you. Though I must say that what impressed me most about the trailer were the short environmental shots we got, the mystique of the areas in DS1 seems to be intact. I can't wait to explore the dragon area!

New Vaati video

Beware, weapon spoilers:

Looks pretty damn accurate from what I can tell. It'll be easier than ever before to make a Guts character. I can't wait to check out that sword's stats, and see if it's in-game text will have any allusion to Berserk.

Nice!

I'm really geared up for this game. I have my preorder almost fully paid off and am going to the midnight release to pick it up. Why can't I freeze myself for a week? :judo:

You lucky bastards... I'm waiting for the PC version which still doesn't have a release date. But there are rumors that it'll be late April.

I can't help it... I would like to play with the higher framerate, better resolution, and modding abilities, but I really wanna play ASAP. I'll definitely get it on PC later though to experience those things.

Last night I found lots of live streams of people who have the game early. I am pretty sure I am not going to watch even a split second of them, but there is a little part of me that thinks it won't ruin anything.

You see, before I ever played any of the Souls games, I caught a pre release live stream of Dark Souls and saw bits of Sen's Fortress, Crystal Caverns, and Lost Izalith. Made me fall in love with the game. Back then I didn't know much about the games, and it was easy to see things without being spoiled because I didn't understand the context. I think with Darksouls II, everything is a spoiler now and I should just wait until Tuesday, right?

I'd say it's best to remain unspoiled. It's not long before it's released at this point! Anyway, I'm off to Game Stop to beg them to give me a copy early. :troll: Not really...

LOL, so I caved and watched about 3-5 seconds of a twitch stream just now (the few seconds it streams before the ads come on) and SHAZAM! Instant Boss spoilers and maybe even spoilers about a potential link to Dark Souls 1. I didn't stick around long enough to find out. I instantly quit the browser tab, and I hope I won't be going back. Got what I deserved I guess.

On another note, I read about a cool new PVP item on another forum today. There is a ring that makes you look like a white phantom, which will render invaders unable to tell who the host is if you've summoned other white phantoms to help you.

I know you're just excited but please do not post anything about content in Dark Souls II yet, even if it's just a potential thing. The game isn't even out for another week. Once the game is officially out, please tag ENTIRE POSTS with the spoiler tag, which you can use by using this:

Code: [Select]
[spoiler] Spoilers go here. [/spoiler]
Thank you.

That's great, but a word of warning to those ordering from GMG: You may not get it on the day of release.

I've ordered from them a number of times, and when you pre-purchase it, they will send you a key sometime around the date of the game's release. When that key comes is totally up to them... It could be a week before, the day before, or a day or so later.

Also, unless I'm mistaken, that April 25 date hasn't yet been confirmed by Namco/Bandai.

Im on the same boat, trying not to read too much because the PC version isn't out yet.  Pity there aren't really that many (barely any) dark souls collectibles  (figures/statues) There's a guy who sells some, but I think his look amateurish

There is apparently a very Dragon Slayer-looking weapon (yet again) in this game.

Also, there are already spoilers GALORE everywhere on the Internet. Tread lightly, gents.

I felt like it was 2 trailers in one. It opened very nice then when the song starts it goes to like an action trailer.
True strength lies in action, Let the weak react to me.

Pretty lame song. They're trying to relive the glory of that Bartholomew trailer.
