This looks absolutely incredible. Definitely at the top of my list graphically - people saying Spider-Man is on there?? I do not see it at all. It looks fine.

Thanks to the scalping of the pS5, I felt like I got killed by the Vanguard and now I'm revived with half my health bar. Now I feel the struggle to get this game with my hopes and dreams.

Just read that some items from the Digital Deluxe edition is indeed exclusive for that version. You can't acquire them in-game but have to shell out more money. That is some bullshit. What the fuck are Sony and Bluepoint thinking, gatekeeping armor sets and weapons behind a paywall? What a great way to sour the experience. I swear, this fucking industry sometimes.

As long as I can get the platinum without them, I'm fine with it.
When, in the history of games (especially "souls") have pre-order in game items been any good?
I remember Ds2 pre-order items being absolutely shit.

Just watched the latest trailer at 4k and it looks incredible and this is the performance mode? Cant imagine how it looks in the other mode.

True. But it's still an annoying practice. Especially for the armor sets. They are ruining fashion Souls. These items should be obtainable in game.

I had a feeling like that was going to be the case, so that’s why I forked over the money for the digital deluxe. I also get the OST with it.

This footage just confirmed that it's a westernised version of a japanese game, complete with redesigned enemies(miners look like beefed up orcs now for some reason), epic music, epic boss entrances and heroic grunts from the main character. Everything should be as epic as possible

Creepy factor is nowhere to be found
Bet you thought the western versions of The Ring and The Grudge sucked, eh?

Yeah, it sucks because what if the Red Eye Knight armor looks amazing? Oh well, they know what they are doing, it's a no-brainer for me. Got me and many other fans by the balls with the $90 version.
