Re: Dark Souls (previously Project Dark)

Finally got to have a quick go on Dark Souls before my missus got back with her child. Feel like a n00b talking about my initial thoughts after seeing how far you guys have got, but I thought you might find the thoughts of someone completely new to the game interesting.

Really like the combat; when I heard combat is assigned to the shoulder buttons I was dubious. The only other game I've played with this sort of set-up is Primal on the PS2, and I could never really get used to it. However, it is very satisfying here. Feels like there is some real weight behind your hits on the enemy, and it is a lot of fun.

I'm only in the tutorial bit, but already the atmosphere seems pleasingly dark and hopeless.

Impressed with the accompanying art book which came the special edition, too; something nice to look at whilst I installed the game. Some of the monster designs are fantastic!

Hopefully I'll be qualified to join in on this conversation properly soon :-)
