    Awesome, thank you Fex!

  2. Kalamos January 30, 2014 at 9:13 am -

    Woot! new stuff, it looks amazing. Can’t wait to see how i would take down those new enemies and see other people strategies. Although i haven’t finished Dark Souls yet, i want to play Drk2!

  3. Emergence January 30, 2014 at 10:08 am -

    Looking good. If feels fresh but familiar. It’s making the transition to the new engine quite nicely.

  4. Halicarnassis January 30, 2014 at 11:43 am -

    Ohmygod that was awesome! Where did you get that footage?

  5. ManatuBear January 30, 2014 at 1:05 pm -

    I want it so badly… ;(

  6. skarekrow13 January 30, 2014 at 2:44 pm -

    Awesome. I like how much it shows without really showing anything. Plus having someone from Shaun of the Dead doing voice acting is a plus (they posted who does Pate’s voice on Facebook).

  7. RANT January 30, 2014 at 4:56 pm -

    A mummy with a scythe, awesome.

  8. Nightmare Moon January 30, 2014 at 6:15 pm -

    6 weeks sure is going to feel a lot longer than it should. Release can’t arrive too soon :)

    You have a beautiful voice.
    More videos with your voice Fex!

    • Superdude100001 January 31, 2014 at 1:00 pm -

      Yeah fex, where do you hail from? Because you have one beautiful accent.

    He should have killed that archer lol

    • Fexelea January 31, 2014 at 3:13 am -

      Totally should have lol

    • skarekrow13 January 31, 2014 at 5:10 am -

      I think you misunderstood the guy’s motivations. You see, the game had him so stressed out at that point that it was leading to very real health problems. It was with that in mind that he decided to see Drangleic’s leading acupuncturist. He didn’t die from an arrow, those were needles and the death was the result of a coincidental simultaneous heart attack. Poor fella

      ok, ok…..maybe he should have killed that archer

      • Superdude100001 January 31, 2014 at 12:51 pm -

        Archurpuncture is a well practiced art in Drangleic.

    Who was it that was playing exactly?
