Is that basically a Samurai themed Dark Souls? Looks good to me.

That looks cool, but the fact that it's a Souls game has me hesitating. I'm getting more of an Onimusha vibe than anything else from that trailer; if it isn't dickpunchingly hard I might pick it up.

Doesn't seem quite like a Souls game. A little faster paced, especially with that jumping and grappling and not really much indication yet of gear customization.

Rumors (many of which have already been validated) indicate that co-op is heavily limited and only in certain areas and PvP is "possess a monster" kind of stuff, similarly limited. If so, then this is one of those "one playthrough and I'm done" games.

After five games I think it might actually be a good thing that its not a soulsborne game.

I had to stop watching it after 3 or 4 minutes, because it was too good to be ruined by spoilers.  Minor one here:
But no shit, talk about out of the blue.  For me anyway.  DO WANT.  The great thing here is that I don't have to wait hardly at all.

On further investigation, it seems to lack a fair few things though ;  no multiplayer, upgrading or stats ?

The combat better feel shit hot.

Doh, really?  I can live without the multiplayer, but...what am I going to do with all the souls of the dead I've collected?  They gotta have some analog.  Must investigate.

You get XP and currency killing things. XP is used to unlock stuff in skill trees and the currency is used to buy items and consumables. There are no stats, leveling and no armor or additional primary weapons (you only have your katana in your right hand). There are multiple attachments including weapons and a shield you can switch between for your prosthetic left arm.

I was really worried about the dumbing down in Bloodborne and for good reasons. Fortunately the whole game was so good that I quickly forgot about it. I can only hope something similar will happen here, where the dumbing down has been multiplied tenfold, although unlike Bloodborne's the setting is really not one of my favourites. If the game is fun I'll play it, but I am ready for a new Souls game and I am not sure this is it.

Is stealth a thing in it? Or is it strictly dodge/roll/block Souls combat?

How was Bloodborne dumbed down? And no this is not the next Soulsborne game you were looking for.

Stealth is a big part of the game, as well as vertical traversal.

Less stats. Also the dumbening was in the ability to perform one last dodge even when you didn't have enough endurance for it, but what I was referring to was the huge cuts to stats and itemization.

Ah, there are skill trees ?  That conflicts with my understanding, so that's good.

I'd read about the arm stuff, but it seemed light.

EDIT :  Watched more video.  The Snake.  Nope.  Nope right the fuck out.

This comes out tomorrow for regular humans, but a lot of folks got it one day ahead and plenty of reviews are already out with very high scores. So far, and interestingly enough, the lowest scores come from IGN Japan which only gives it an 8 out of 10 where everyone else is giving it 9 or above. Biggest Japanese criticisms are about a lack of variety in enemies and maps.

I'd probably pick this up if the Grim Dawn expansion weren't coming out in a week. Also I actually feel a bit burned out on Souls games.

I can't figure out if I am going to jump on this now or not.  Would like more info, particularly about how Soulsy it is or isn't (or maybe about how much of a Technu successor it might be) and also hearing some grumblings about controller compatability that might need sorting.

Making the ps4 controller work on Steam took me 5 minutes and a Google search, but it jow works flawlessly. Most of the grumbling is from idiots who gave up after 5 seconds.

The game teaches you how to stealth within the first 60 seconds, so it is safe to say that it doesn't feel that much "soulsy" to me so far. Which is something that was clarified here a while ago.
