Nice! The first one is great, probably my most played game this generation.
Hopefully they keep the NG difficulty the same but make NG+(+...) much harder, after you've completed it once and know which enemies are waiting round the corner to sucker punch you it becomes too easy, I think I only died on NG+ three times without using any summons (1x Ornstein & Smough, 2x Four Kings). NG++ - NG+++++ didn't seem to get any harder apart from the Four Kings which was disappointing.
A proper storyline and harder to obtain achievements (e.g. complete the game at SL1) would be nice too
