It's been rumoured for a while Sony were going to get Demons Souls 2, but with Souls now being associated with multiplat maybe we're just going to get a souls game under a new name?

Hope they make it ala Demons Souls or Dark Souls but not like Dark Souls 2. So I guess , getting the original director back on boat is essential. Dark Souls 2 gameplay was made overly slow and reaction times are no longer relevant, it's all about strategy and anticipation now which is not bad but it takes a big chunk of skill out of the game. The physics also took a step downward in DkS2 from Demons/Dark Souls imo. 

 

On a slightly different note, Sony made a huge mistake ever letting the Souls series go multiplatform. The series has gone on to become critically acclaimed and sold in the millions.

Well the original creator Miyazaki has been working on this since DS1, on DS2 he handed the project over to someone else and only spent some time overseeing it.

 

Demons Souls is owned by Sony, but in order for all souls games to have been exclusive I think Sony would have to have bought From Software. That or contracted all the "souls" games, not just Demons. Not saying they shouldn't have, they should have, but its clear that they somehow thought they game wouldn't be as big a success as it was (Atlus were left to publish in US/EU). Silly Sony!

 

People are essentially classing this as Demon Souls 2 though, as with it being published by SCEJ, it will be exclusive.

'Project Beast' Screenshots Leaked: Possible PS4 Exclusive From Makers Of 'Dark Souls'

 

http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2014/05/02/project-beast-screenshots-leaked-possible-ps4-exclusive-from-makers-of-dark-souls/

 

When Dark Souls II was announced we learned that Souls creator and director, Hidetaka Miyazaki, would not be leading the project. It was rumored that he was working on another project. There?s no telling if Project Beast is that project at this point, but it wouldn?t be surprising.
 
The game is also apparently being developed in conjunction with Sony's Japan Studio. That was the case with Demon?s Souls, the PS3 exclusive that kicked off the Souls franchise in 2009. If true, this would make Project Beast a PlayStation exclusive, and specifically a PS4 exclusive.

I'm a huge fan of the souls series but I can tell that I'm not good at the games :laugh: . I'm very excited for project beast, I do feel most of the resources were going into this title instead of Das2.

Souls with guns...yes! As long as they keep the more tactical pace. Lest it swallow you whole, as it has so many others: DmC, Bayonetta, etc.

 

I would really love a Souls/Armored Core cross-over, as well :D

Please let me face RRA in a giant mech bristling with nuclear warheads, please :cry:

Disappointed in the lack of Souls-Neowin. Andy why don't you play more Souls games? :p

Because I suck at them :( I love the style and setting, but I struggle to get into the gameplay. I don't know if it's because it just felt "clunky" or what, but something didn't click for me.

 

Which one is the most noob-friendly and I'll give it another go sometime.

Noob-friendly Souls game? I think that would be none of them :laugh:

I have enjoyed the series, but I'm sort of in the same camp as you. There are times when I have to stop playing for a while because of a long string of deaths in the same area, over and over. The gameplay can start to feel less then pleasant.

I don't mind the difficulty as such. I love and play roguelikes / permadeath games which I think go a level beyond Souls, but I can't put my finger on what I didn't like.

 

I haven't touched them since Demon Souls a few years ago when AB brought it to my attention, so maybe it has improved since then. I think both have been part of PS+ and GwG respecitvely so nothing to lose trying them again I guess. Will download them later, but still I'd like to know which is easier to get to grips with :P

You're missing out on Dark Souls 2, it's crazy accessible. They finally nailed the challenging but rewarding balance right. Demon's Souls was just too brutal. Dark Souls 2 is my GOTY thus far, so defo recommended.

Bloodborne is the cover story of this week's Famitsu, and there's an interview with Miyazaki in it as well. Here are some details reported by a Japanese blog who got the magazine early.
 
- Spring 2015 release window
- They started work on this right after finishing Artorias of the Abyss, targeting Sony's new hardware
- The world and story is completely new, and the setting takes full advantage of the PS4's capabilities
- They're targeting 30fps at 1080p
- The keywords for the game is "blood" and "beast"
- There will be melee and long range weapons (guns) this time
- Character customization is confirmed
- There will be no map display in the game
- He wants combat to not just focus on action but also the strategic element
- The combat in the game is designed to feel like a life or death struggle
- There will be online elements of some sort, and it will involve players "discovering" together

I really want to see a proper, full quality trailer. The stream last night did not do it justice.

That trailer was pretty insane. I've always liked the vibe from Demon's and DS but BB took it to a whole new level.

 

Crazy how fast they're releasing it too. Q1/2 is going to be very busy / expensive

"deranged mobs and nightmarish creatures lurk around every corner" :rofl:

 

Sounds like my commute to work!

 

Yes, this should be a very good game. But it's official, 2015 is really trying for most annoying year in gaming. What the hell, is the economy slated for a rebound in the next six months or something? What are we supposed to buy this holiday season? There's only like 20 full price titles coming out from now till end of Nov, i demand my usual 40 :D

Hope this city will have cameos from the Souls games. Managed to solo RRV and i'd be sorely let down if he and his friends didn't make the sewers of this new location :laugh:

So I haven't played much of the Souls games as I've said, but these trailers give a very different impression of gameplay and setting to me.

 

There's almost a Res Evil / DMC vibe in there, but with the dials turned all the way up. The level of atmosphere and gothic / horror tones are through the roof, compared to Souls (at least from my ill experienced perspective) which leans more towards fantasy (dragons, knights, castles etc).  Can't wait to see more.

Yeah Demons Souls had more of a gothic feel, Dark Souls was a bit more modern fantasy "horror". 

 

This seems to share more in common with Demons in terms of environment atmosphere. The leaked trailer above is the most footage we have, but it's also the earliest, notable lighting upgrades in the E3 build. Both suffer from bad framerate and tearing, but until Gamescom/TGS we can just put that down to development footage.

      Sony announces Airpeak S1 drone tailored for its Alpha series cameras
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Sony has just introduced its professional drone dubbed the Airpeak S1. As per the Japanese company, the Airpeak S1 is the world's smallest drone that can fly with a full-size mirrorless Alpha camera onboard.

      The drone is equipped with a proprietary motor and a 17" propeller for stable flight even during windy conditions. Sony claims that the drone has a lightweight yet sturdy body. The Airpeak has a maximum speed of 55 miles per hour (90km/h). It can withstand wind speeds of up to 44.7mph.

      It uses image sensors, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), barometric pressure, and infrared ranging to optimize the flight path. There's an Electric Speed Controller (ESC) for high maneuverability and an obstacle detection system to avoid mishaps.

      The Airpeak S1 is compatible with Sony's Alpha 7S series, Alpha 7R series, and the Alpha 9 series. The latest Alpha 1 capable of shooting footage in 8k is also compatible with this drone.



      Sony's Airpeak Base web application enables users to create flight plans and check the vitals of the drone before the next flight. Sony claims that it is possible to make the drone fly along a predetermined route without real-time input. Customers can use the Android and iOS companion app to track the drone, check battery status, and even access gimbal settings. The drone offers a dual operation mode that enables one user to control the drone while the other operates the camera.

      The Airpeak S1 drone is priced at $9,000 and will ship to customers in the fall of 2021. The retail package includes an additional set of propellers. However, users will have to purchase a gimbal separately. As per Sony, the drone is made in Japan and comes with an Airpeak Protect Plan, which covers accidental damage.

      Horizon Forbidden West gameplay reveal has boss fight with a machine elephant
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      As promised, Guerrilla Games showed off Horizon Forbidden West's gameplay for the first time today. The State of Play had footage captured on the PlayStation 5 as the developer used a short 14-minute rescue mission to highlight the flashy visuals, combat moves, returning and new foes, and more. The full reveal can be seen above.

      The mission has Aloy pursuing a group of raiders from the Tenakth tribe who has taken an ally, Erend, seen in the first game hostage. The gorgeous jungle, underwater environments, the Shieldwing (Aloy's new glider), as well as machine and human foes all get close-ups in the trailer. The finale is a frantic boss fight against a machine elephant (Tremortusk) that has a Lord of the Rings style mount on top to hold multiple bow-wielding enemies.

      Here's how the developer describes the upcoming entry's setting:

      Horizon Forbidden West will be launching on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Unfortunately, the game does not have a firm release date yet. Although in the original announcement last year Sony said the game is targeting a 2021 launch, it's unclear if this is still the plan.

      Horizon Forbidden West gameplay will be shown at the next State of Play
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Nearly a year ago, Sony announced Horizon Forbidden West, a sequel to the action RPG Horizon Zero Dawn from 2017. While the announcement only carried a cinematic trailer giving glimpses at what's next for Aloy in her journey to parts of America, series developer Guerrilla Games will soon show off the sequel's gameplay for the first time.

      Sony's next State of Play broadcast is set for May 27, and it has a 20-minute segment prepared just for Horizon Forbidden West, from which 14 minutes will be in-game footage from the upcoming adventure.

      "This reveal has been a true team effort and we’re very excited to show you what we have in store," Guerilla Games game director Mathijs de Jonge says. "Whether you’ve been with us and Aloy since Horizon Zero Dawn or are only just getting to know this incredible world, we want to share this huge milestone with you and cannot wait to see your favorite moments and reactions."

      On May 27 a special State of Play pre-show will begin at 9AM PDT / 5PM BST / 6PM CEST followed by the main event at 2PM PDT / 10PM BST / 11PM CEST. The broadcast can be caught on both YouTube and Twitch channels of PlayStation.

      Horizon Forbidden West has a 2021 launch window attached to it and is headed for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The series also debuted on PC last year, with Horizon Zero Dawn launching on the platform.
