    Karate Kick!
    I love when that knight gives the player the clasic Chuck Norris roundhouse kick in da face.
    Priceless.

    Sent you gotta watch the IGN review - they focus on the 4 classes. Clearly dual wielding is for a specific character class. That guy is a temple knight.. Am so stoked for this game!

    I was talking about the karate kick that AI knight did to the player.
    Love it.

    I saw the IGN vid and the only thing that interested me was the aesthetics of the dueal wielder. Do want them clothes! That's exactly what I want to wear, but in DkS that damned Black Cleric set looks like a pants from 80's instead of a coat.

    Karate kicking horsemen statues are wicked. I loved the spell sword, but what I thought was brilliant was the magic sword spell which when cast was like a great sword swing! Awesome melee spells!

    From what I've seen they appear to have taken more from Demon Souls than DkS

    That would depend on what you're being disappointed about.

    The video I linked to. The Temple Knight walks right through the guy's attack without flinching.

    What's there to be disappointed about?

    He blocked it, you can see the stamina loss.

    You cannot not understand what this means.

    Spoiler:
    Poise.

    Again, this.

    Even so, the temple knight looks like he's wearing some pretty tanky armour.

    You are wrong, and however tanky the armor looks wouldn't matter if there wasn't poise.

    Why would there not be poise?

    IMO, the poise thing was needed, but I thought it was simply done wrong in DkS. It's hopefully going to be revised and much better in DkS2.

    Who cares about Poise?
    That knigh is Chuck Norris. He laughs at your Poise.

    The player blocked the knight's attacks with his weapon.
    Where seems to be the problem sir?

    Sounds like you're disappointed that poise will be back. Don't know what to tell you except, that's your opinion and you're certainly entitled to it. I don't see it as a huge issue.

    I do not think there is a right way to do poise. If there is, I am doubtful that FROM could engineer it.

    The thing is, it's already been done and FROM was the one who did it.  They just decided to scrap it when they made Dark Souls for some reason.  The way it was in Demon's Souls (and it DID EXIST IN THAT GAME) made it purely a niche defensive mechanism for playstyles that would actually need it.

    Somebody got poise stabbed far too many times in here.

    Played DeS PvP? Damn am I glad to have Poise, even broken one.
    Never again have to get push-locked to death, nor have to do it myself.
    Also, it's a WAY better system than to have hyper armor on big fat Str weapons like DeS had.
