Despair. Probably the most fitting word to be associated with the Dark Souls games. Namco released 12 minutes of gameplay footage earlier this week, but this is more of a cinematic, although there are a few in-game shots that show off the varied environments. They're looking great, but will most of us even make it out of the first cave without being scarred for life? It looks like the game's usual standards of collision detection are there too as you can see the player's axe pass through a wall at one point (0:44). Why would you include that in a trailer? I don't understand.
