My immediate reaction is that these characters don't fit at all, because Souls peeps are supposed to look like dead, ugly flesh puppets. Then I realize how weird it is that my brain was trained to think that.

Anyway, looks very pretty, and I hope to play this in about 6 months when PS5's will be more frequently available.

Didn't read, but the pictures look good. Always found it annoying that the NPCs looked ten times more human than your own character, unless you spent two hours randomly generating faces in the bad creator.

That's great and all but don't you stick a bucket on your character in all of these games anyway?

First Bloodborne, now this. I could really use some PC versions in my life over here. I can't be spending money on consoles all over the place is all.

Im willing to bet they'll have a helmet toggle button. But yeah i guess that is a fair point but people like to customize characters regardless. Souls fans are infamous for making the most fucked up looking abominations in the character creator.

You can make black people that aren't purple or look like Mister Popo?

That's how you know Bluepoint isn't a Japanese company.

Character creators used to be my jam, but when I realized that I will never make the avatar look like me and that any avatar I make will never be better than the default, I gave up on them.

Anyway, I never played Demon's Souls so I can't comment on how the creator changed, but that detail on the armor looks great.

By “early” do you mean “at launch” or literally beforehand?
Launch, Sony announced that they will not be selling consoles to in-store retailers. They want the launch to be online only because of Covid. Which i think is utterly bullshit.

That’s really limiting sales potential, but also legal issues from the countless people that would be camped out in dirty parking lots and fall weather, breathing on each other when they get tired of wearing masks all night.


Meanwhile we all most of us still have to go grocery shopping every week or whatever.

im beginning to fear I wont be able to get a PS5 early.
Yeah, I think they're going to probably be pretty scarce for the first couple of months. I probably won't be able to get my hands on one until early next year (because I'm too lazy to go substantially out of my way to try and get one).

I have notifications in place at all major retailers to let me know the second i can get one online. So hopefully I will be able to snag one up that way.

The UI really sucks. It looks like it was made on powerpoint. Please tell me this isn't the final product.


I want the old UI or something similar.

looks fine to me. Looks like the original game, which I like because people that played the original will be able to find their way through the menus and such. And if the game is super true to the original it means the new players can find old guides for them.

A lot of souls fans will probably be disappointed in this game since it's actually the easiest game by todays standards. It mostly has gimmick bosses and mid tier boss battles. The only difficult thing about this game were mostly certain enemies, map design, and janky gameplay. It was a game made more for atmosphere and presentation, rather than combat.
