It’s official. Here’s the bullet points:

*Miyazaki (Dark Souls) & George “just finish the fucking books” RR Martin story
*CGI video just like the rest of the Dark Souls games

That is all.

Is this an Xbox exclusive?
Nah, it’ll be on the Station.
*Praise the Sun*
"...it's coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC"

Until Epic jizz money all over the place and it becomes exclusive to them for a year.
Sounds like a German race track.

The amount of money they'd need to jizz to keep it off the Xbox and PS4 would be ridiculous, I doubt there's much chance of it.

That won’t happen, but they might keep it off Steam for a year.
The internet is a buzz about the leak of a couple of seconds of a trailer. I imagine the full trailer will be forced into the open in the coming week. It’s got a horse.

Well, played a very small amount of this now. I dare say, if you like dark souls or it's ilk, you'll like this.

It is quite pretty.
Inspired by all the hype around Elden Ring, I restarted Bloodborne earlier this week.

Yep, not going to happen. Which makes me sad as there's clearly something very special about these games, but they're just not for me.

I envy those enjoying the Elden Ring!
Yup. I tried Dark Souls but it was too hard and it pissed me off, gave up. Ditto Bloodborne after getting drawn in by the pretties. Got this preordered and turning up today and am filled with confidence and high hopes that the third time will be the charm. Won't get to play until Sunday, though.
It’ll be the first thing I buy when I manage to get a PS5.
Good news @Grim...

I agree with Mr Fop and markg, I've watched these games from afar for years but never tried one because I know enough about myself to know it's not the type of game I like, all that having been said apparently Elden Ring does provide a slightly more forgiving on-ramp for the 'series' (it's not technically a series is it? But you know what I mean), so part of me is tempted to give it a go, and it's an obvious candidate to give a whirl on the new PC once (a) It actually arrives and (b) They've fixed the technical issues with the PC version of the game.

I'm still not sure though, with comments such as 'Use a notepad and a pen to track NPCs' being a real thing and I saw Asmongold give up during gameplay saying words to the effect of 'I have no idea where I'm going, or what I'm supposed to be doing, I'm lost, and I'm not having fun'.

So yeah, still a 50/50 call for me, I might play it with a walkthrough as that has helped me get over the hump with other games that have similar design choices in the past.
Must be about 20 hours into this now and have yet to experience any frustration. If you get to a hard bit there's just so many options for levelling up or just exploring somewhere else. Amazing game.

Interesting, having shared similar frustrations with previous games, this sounds promising
Hnnggh, starting to get to the same point of finding a few of the shitty boss battles that I just can't be arsed retrying enough times to git gud enough win. I just don't find them gratifying or rewarding at all. They're just tedious things in the way of the next good bit of the game. They make me feel like I've got more fun things to be doing with my day. Ah well.
That's Bosses in games in general for me. I hate them. Always have

I am generally the same, unless it's a particularly interesting boss set-piece.

However, played CupHead co-op with a pal the other day, and the boss-rush levels were so much more enjoyable than the trad run and gun sidescroller levels. Really intense, but satisfying to beat and was happy to try and try again. Suspect my patience would be greatly diminished, playing solo.
