    Didn't say it was a good idea, I was just guessing.
    But I always wondered why adding all those infos about players in the book of the guilty if you couldn't then choose..

    What has kept Gough alive all these years? Is he undead? Or is it part of his not completely human status?

    I just watched the trailer on Youtube, and one guy said that he ordered the console edition with art book etc. The new bosses featuring in the trailer was already in the Art Book? Seems a little strange to me... but that would actually mean a console release too if its true happy
    (Sorry if this has already been mentioned )

    I'm pretty sure that they said in an interview somewhere that they felt the game was perfectly balanced. And as a result, weren't going to release any DLC, as they feel it would give an unfair advantage to players who could afford it.
    Didn't they also say that they'd like to keep the game fair by giving everyone the same chance to work for superior equipment rather than buying them?

    It is still possible that the DLC could be free. I can't really say if it will be or not, but it is a possibility.

    Plus my bet is that there won't be any "superior" equipment. I bet new and interesting but probably well balanced to the existing stuff.

    About that matchmaking thing. I don't think they'll separate pvp and pve, but they will add another function just for PvP, probably due to the Gankers or something. Maybe another option on the menu.

    My guess is that there will be no announcement of either DLC or a 'Prepare to Die Edition' for consoles, until after the PC version releases.

    More info on the online/PvP components of the PC version:
    Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on the PC platform will also include an enhanced PVP mode allowing players to more closely assemble battles against one another online in an all-out fight to the death that fans have demanded.

    i'm already thinking of a strategy for the Chimera/Manticore thingy. depends on whether or not it breathes fire like a Chimera; but i'm thinking the fight with be similar to Sif.

    i have faith this will be DLC, and i would gladly pay $20-30 for it. i'm also going to avoid any gameplay vids or any further screen shots until i'm able to play it.

    I hope they keep that PVP mode out of the actual game, what an atomosphere breaker. People have been demanding it since demons, but its been simple enough to connect with people you want to play with, and PVP has been easy enough with RSS in certain dates and times. The only thing I would actually have wanted them to do was decrease the summon failure, not make waiting rooms...

    I am fine with it as long as it stays out of the actual game and is instead an option you can choose from the menu, as it sounds like from your post.

    looks like it's gonna be bigger than some of us were anticipating though big grin

    then again, if that's artorias where is the guy's shield? I guess though since it's "Artorias of the Abyss" suppose it's after his corruption.. hmm I think the lore nuts are gonna have a field day with the DLC (when it comes)

    Well, I really believe that's Artorias. Remember, he is corrupted! All what we know about Artorias, well let's just say that it's not the Artorias we know. The Shield, the Ring, and his Sword, they are all from when he was a good guy. And the Cursed Version of his sword it's probably what happened to his sword after he did the covenant.

    So I believe he probably uses other kind of sword. But I'm 99% that instead of a shield he will have a badass giant Dark Hand or something like that.

    This seems really unlikely, but it's just a thought....

    Maybe there'll be something to do with that bloody pendant!

    Actually, now that I think about it, how will these new areas be put in the game? Artorias seems like the new final boss so what about Gwyn?

    i would press caps lock and rant about how amazing this is but enough people have done it already so i am going to try to keep my head calm. i agree with that the dragon seems to be at the bridge above the hydra in darkroot. if you watch when he fights the manticore seems similar to darkroot, the same with the tomb entrance. but the coloring is a lot brighter. also the giant hand thing is in a cave with no visible way forward and it looks very similar to the hydra cave. im going to make a crazy theory, the hand thing is where the golden golem is and there is now a "bottomless" hole there, the hand thing appears and takes you down to the ruins of oz and that is the same place that atorias tomb is.

    I think you're right about the hand. That looks like a similar cutscene as the raven at the Asylum. Walking along and AHHH!!

    That's an interesting theory. And I agree with you that it looks like that.

    Look, here is a screenshot of that exact moment so more people can analyze it:

    EDIT: I added the Pic to the main post in the first page.

    I'm interested how they are going to implement these areas into the game with regards to level. For example will these new areas scale according to level or will there be recommended levels for the new areas. If there are recommended levels this may mean starting a new toon for some. In my case I currently only have an sl120.
