    I was just asking because From didn't want any footage of DS2 leaked and it's against the rules you had to agree to to make Videos of it, so i was worried you might get sued for linking to it or something .

    But too late now lol

    about that. there's no NDA linked to the beta of the game. i've asked a few weeks ago to namco and they confirmed we'd be allowed to do anything we want with the beta version (film it / stream it / whatever)

    I always say I'll go in blind, but get tempted by the "shiny" videos.  It's all out of context anyway, so I'll probably forget most of it.  That sorcerer wields some badass looking spell or something.

    Do not worry about copyright. We didn't create, upload or host the videos, we are simply embedding them. So if From has a problem they must take it up with YouTube and Youku, and in the end it would be counter productive to their preorder performance.

    I believe rules like the one listed are there only to give places like IGN an upper hand on getting views for the clicks, as publishers value the push from gaming sites. That said, we are the Dark Souls community, and to me that makes us the only ones who matter. So bring those links! silly

    He is (the first footage) showing the WHOLE Mirror Knight boss battle.
    I know, I know the camera is setup pretty stupid but you can see pretty good what is going on and also hear the boss theme pretty well happy

    UPDATE 1st October 2013:
    4 new vids of gameplay of the Dark Souls II BETA aka Network Test Version.



    There are several japanese beta videos over the internet but these 4 are the best I've seen. They are pure gameplay, by real people, not devs or anything.

    I have watched the part now over and over again and we speculated this with my friend and he thinks it's not a ring, but just very high agility roll aaaaand I'm maybe starting to learn towards that too since the black phantom was VERY fast in running and rolling movement all together.
    Since the video is so bad quality it's hard to see if the roll is actually a cartwheel, but at least it looks very much like one

    After reading the game text... these are the spells I can guess at. 

    Sorceries:
     
    Possibly a new sorcery, talks about swapping int for dex.

    Soul Arrow

    Soul Spear

    Something that sounds like a sort of 'scatter soul spear' that breaks up mid flight into smaller soul masses.

    Not sure what it's actually called, but I'll go with 'Soul Sword'
     

    Miracles:

    Force

    Heal

    Replenish

    A miracle with some Sun Princess cov esque lore that buffs the attack and defense of nearby allies.

    Lightning Spear, with some Solaire sounding lore.

    Pyromancies:

    Fire Whip

    Fireball

    Combustion(?)

    A homing fireball?

    Hexes/Dark Magic:

    Dark Bead equivalent

    Dark Orb equivalent, though it talks more about damaging stamina

    A barrier that protects against pyromancy

    Dark Fog equivalent

    A TWoP that also lowers max HP, by the sound of it. (DUN, DUN, DUNNNN)

    Listed Rings:
    A Havel's ring equivalent

    A ring of steel protection equivalent

    A ring that protects against elemental damage (magic, fire, lightning, dark)

    A ring that rolls bloodbite, cursebite, poisonbite, and the eastwood grain ring into one.

    Red Tearstone Ring

    Regenerator Ring (but it eventually breaks this time around)

    Cling Ring equivalent

    Guardians of Blue covenant ring (summons you to defend hosts from invaders)

    Brotherhood of Blood covenant ring (No listed effects)


    I also have a few pretty strong assumptions about a bit of lore and details, but I'll keep those to myself for now.





    Also: New translated stat page http://www.gameranx.com/img/13-Sep/darksouls2stats.jpg



    They're definitely throwing an interesting curve ball here.

    likely mentioned elsewhere but cant find hide nor hair of it. . . so

    one of the videos release recently shows the temple knight using a sunlight spear. . stabbing it into a dark magic using chap. . 
    so does this suggest the return of the warriors of sunlight cov?

    . . .could there be the slightest chance of a cameo from 'a' sunbro? i do hope so.

    Examining one of the boss fights, I must say I like how it progresses:
    Boss Examination:
    The Skeleton Boss fight is composed of numerous amounts of identical skeleton "liches" to give them a name. When a "lich" is defeated, it dies and respawns as a "normal" undead mob. The known spawns seem to be bonewheels and skeleton warriors. I think I also spotted a unique "Skeleton King" as a re-spawn.

    Now this is where it gets interesting: As long as a "lich" is alive, these newly re-spawned "bosses" are immortal. You must hunt down all the "liches" in order to be able to kill their immortal forms. Once you have beaten all the "liches", the second half of the fight begins, where you must strike down the now-mortal undead mobs as normally. However, note that unlike common situations, you have to fight them all at the same time.

    Simply enough, it's a gauntlet of battle
    I really hope they take their time to create more unique bosses (as in, non-Demon Souls copies *Cough* Gwyndolin *Cough*), I really wanted a boss fight of this kind.

    I really hope they take their time to create more unique bosses (as in, non-Demon Souls copies *Cough* Gwyndolin *Cough*), I really wanted a boss fight of this kind.
    I really hope they still have an epic 1vs1 Swordsman Duel, no gimmicks, no special mechanics .

    Just you, the final Boss and your skill .

    I always liked that theme .
    I hope you cannot Parry>Riposte though .

    Oh wait, which boss were you talking about ?
    There wasn't a fight like Gwyndolins in Demons .
