Dark Souls 2 gameplay video released: 12 minutes of in-game

Can't be any more excited for this game. Demon Souls was great, and Dark Souls was easily one of the best games in the last decade. The sequel looks to be more amazing than its predecessors.

Never got into Dark Souls. I'm not a fans of playing games primarily for their difficulty.

I love Dark Souls, but its difficulty isn't what keeps me playing. It's hard at first, and each new enemy you find fights differently from the last and you have to learn to adapt, but it's not too hard once you learn the controls and physics. What keeps me playing is the depth of the game, the way everything in the game seems to be linked together, from all the story aspects to the layout of the level design. Never any loading screens when going from one area to the next (except for the very beginning and very end). You just walk to where you want to go. It gives it that Lord of the Rings feel, having to walk for ages to get to your destination, with imminent danger around every turn.

Don't be put off or deceived by the much talked about difficulty. It made me hesitant at first but it's not ass bad as you think. The difficulty feels like a natural compelling and part of the experience. If you really get into it you'll be completely ensnared and will forget about it being difficult.

Umm...there were dragons in Dark Souls 1, and it came out before Skyrim...

That miracle world? i had that built in to the master system and i swear that game must have been made by cenobites.

game looks good, wish it was 12mins of actual gameplay footage instead of mostly interview footage with a few clips but i'll take what i can get so far. got me resting a little easier to see the game in action.

Loved Dark Souls. Definitely not 'easy', but once you figured out the bonfire checkpoints, how to bank your XP in upgrades and making the most of help from online players I loved every minute of it. The level/world design was amazing.
