    Once again my main fear arises; the use of the term 'main hero' to describe the character from the trailer....I have a feeling they want to implement a main predetermined character....which would be AWFUL..... also, vehicles seems like a strange choice..... hmmmm. The enemy design seems sorta cool I guess...

    I took very quick glimpse on enemies and I think


    Enemy N6, Has probably grab attacks and sucks out your life-force, Just like Wraiths (Maybe new wraiths?)
    Enemy N4, Looks alot like Hades from GOW.

    IMHO Dark Souls II has really dark concept

    I was totally wrong about enemy by number 6, When I read the info i was disgusted, a spider that controlls undead by attaching himself and penetrating his spine and taking control over his movement? DAYUMN


    The Rider,that punishes player for evil deeds,Velka? And I wonder how he would appear, it would be cool If you casually go through level, and rift of time opens up and The Rider just rides out and chops your head off.


    What's so special about enemy that has his rib's shown?

    the artwork is certainly quite dark, it is def easy to try a little too hard the with evil/badass/gore/darkness and make it silly....I think in some ways(esp demons souls) the subtle nature of many elements, including enemy design, was a big win.... its a tricky path to walk...

    I don't think they'd do something that stupid. This just makes me hope he's more of an Oscar figure now.

    I think vehicle's will be used only by enemies, and they won't be any in PvP or will they? ????

    And here's the rest of the interview - some of the images i've resized/rotated from the original source, though one page is still half unreadable.

    Paging Dr. Tolvo!

    Check out the last picture caption on page 8. They are going to increase accessibility by making a review screen that collects hints for easy access.

    They are also talking about "guiding" the player in several instances. My initial knee jerk reaction was optimism, but now I understand your sentiments. Didn't they play DKS? There were so many hints to guide the player (npcs told you everything you needed to know), not to mention OSS!

    Just read through them all, and things aren't really sounding that bad. It's also nice to know they are probably more than 1/4 of the way done.

    The only vehicles that I think can make any sense are mounts. I'm concerned about that statement.
