Literally dabbled at the beginning of DS Remastered...  Shame on me, but it looks kinda ugly... Not sure if it's how they Remastered it, but it just looks ...poor.  The 60fps looks great, but man.. I don't know if it's the texture rework or the shading/lighting they use...  I was saying shame on me, because I easily fall into my graphic whoreismo, and I become highly picky.  Not sure if I can do this...  DS3, and even BB, just look sooo much better.  Just feels like a big step back in the visual department.  :larry

Now I'm wondering if BluePoint will up the options some when it comes to character creation..  I like having colorful pigment options for hair... It's always a bummer to be restricted to more natural tones. (Like Bethesda and Bioware games  :yuck)  Yes... I want my sky blue hair.  It's in DS3 and BB after all.

Like a Blizzard game in the remake. Or at best - in the last shot - like DS3. Which is not what I ever got out of what I've been demonstrated of DeS.

I mean... they have valid points (the notes above the pics), but you could also look at it like, they had limited resources to work with back then.. less polys to make a building/tower, so they justify it by stating it's a defense tower, not a cathedral!  :lol  Again, I don't disagree with what they're saying, as it makes sense, but this is a fantasy game through and through.. Make the mundane shit as pretty/ugly with all the bells and whistles as possible... because it's fantasy...why not.  I don't see that as a good enough reason to justify not getting it...   ...Unless BluePoint totally butchers the gameplay, but I don't see that happening.

Most everything in AAA games was shitty-brown, grey and colorless when Demonís Souls released.  And even when you add in some color, the game still looks almost nothing like WoW.

In game Dragon God isn't that different from the remake's, red eyes an all, at least in terms of design, ofc. the graphics are what they are.

Yeah, the OG CG intro just looks to have a more organic look to it (at least based on that pic)... The in game one... looks the way it looks I suppose.

I just wonder how much freedom they gave BluePoint to mess with/alter the original designs...  SOTC was practically 1:1 with their Colossus designs, but I suppose they had to seeing as they were the star gameplay elements of the game and needed to be kept the way they are...

The gameplay in the Demon's Souls remake looked off.

Like graphically it looks amazing, but I don't know if Bluepoint "gets it". Hit detection and animation looked iffy and certain attacks from enemies weren't as effective as it was in the original. For example, the shield bash the blue eyed knight does broke your posture on PS3, but in this one you can just tank 3 in a row and be fine?

Probably had cheats enabled for demo purposes

Which is why there was no HUD

Yeah, hopefully.

Demon's Souls is top 10 for me so I don't want them to fuck it up

Yeah.. Even though I haven't played DeS, when he was blocking, there was little to no feedback or resistance with regular scrub enemies... looked weird... Is the PS3 version like that?
...
Still can't wait to play it.

Dammit...  BB is just that good, isn't it.. :lawd

After picking it back up, I've made some progress.  Defeated Vicar Amelia and the 2 hunters camped out to the right of that boss chamber (lighting weilding one).  Made it down to Hemwick Charnel area...  The vibes here are totally scratching the halloween gaming itch I get this time of year.   To top it off though, I just got Ludwig's Holy Blade.  That sword owns some shit. :pimp
Never would have thought I'd enjoy this game as much as I have of late.
