Today they launched the Dark Souls Remastered BETA which was called the Network Test. After running around in it for a few hours I had to review some of my thoughts on the gameplay changes and great new graphics!

Dark Souls Remastered finally launches later this month on PC and consoles, and if you have downloaded the network test client, you can start trying out the game right now.
Players in all regions can join the test right now on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as confirmed by a variety of reports. The available area is limited, as expected, but it should be more than enough to get a taste of the experience if you never played the original before.
Last month, it’s been confirmed that all those who purchased the original Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition on Steam will be able to get Dark Souls Remastered for a reduced price. The original release is now no longer available for purchase.
Owners of the PC version of “Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition” will be able to upgrade to “DARK SOULS REMASTERED” at a discounted price. Please feel free to take advantage of this campaign. Dark Souls Remastered launches on May 24th on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch version will be released sometime this Summer.
DreamcastGuy has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. If you just do a side-by-side comparison it is difficult to tell a difference between the so-called "Remastered" version and the original--save for the mist doors, souls, and flickering foliage. The really only thing that is going to be improved for the consoles is the frame rate (supposedly) and the increase in player count from 4 to 6. This is a poor excuse for a "Remaster;" it's more of a port.
"Gameplay changes" Ya mean the litany of bugs, backstab chaining and just being able to literally run behind people and backstab?
They slapped new paint on the game and that's about it. It's pretty shit, but still shit. You can feel the difference in the games, and it still feels dated af.
DS is my personal favorite game of all time, and this beta and the remaster itself lived up to all of my expectations. i was ready for slightly improved graphics, better lighting, and 1080p/60fps. people seem to forget that graphics arent everything in a game, its the way its made, the way its played and the amount of enjoyment you get from it. Ive been more angry and had the most amount of fun from DS than any other game ive ever played, so THIS is gonna be a day one purchase without a doubt and when the Switch version comes out ill be picking it up for that as well.
I really liked it. It's my favorite game ever but better looking.
Sure Dark Souls isn't perfect. The PvP can be clunky and God knows the lag is a part of the game.
But this game left a unique taste in my heart and mind. What it made me feel was like nothing else. It will always be a blueprint for an incredible game for me. It is one of a kind and started a whole sub genre in video gaming.
(Expecting some Demon Souls hipsters to come down on me LOL)
I wish you showed examples of the specific improvements because I believe you are misinformed. The vines by the sun bro statue were there in dark souls 1 originally and i doubt they've added much new textures. I feel like you're getting people's hopes up by telling them new stuff is in the game, when that's not true. They already released a full breakdown of all the additions and "new vines" was not in the list. Great video but this could cause people to buy the game with higher expectations
As far as asking if it's an adequate remaster or a cash grab, i'd say it's a little bit of both. I like how they haven't changed much but still i feel like they could have done a better job with it. It's a mixed reaction for me but i'm still going to get it because it's in my top 5 games of all time.
Good lad! I'm sick of people bitching about this game! I mean at least now the game runs great on console. I'm going to be getting this on ps4 and switch I love the series! Nice to see someone who appreciates the remaster.
IMHO this remaster is garbage and just a crap-ditch effort to cash grab more money before the souls series officially dies off, the souls-borne community is dwindling everyday, updates slowly coming to an end, the remaster looks worse than some modded versions I've seen and the fact they didn't polish the game much with so many areas that need improvement, hell even DS2 made improvements and changes to SOTFS and its widely disliked amongst the fans. I'll just say its not worth the money at release and no one should buy this crap at release, I'll wait till it drops off if even then, buying a halfheartedly put together game only encourages these companies to keep doing the crap gamers get mad at so don't be surprised when yo get to Blighttown and the FPS till sucks sure it might be slightly improved but don't count on it
I don't know what it is about your commentary that's so good but so cringe-inducing at the same time! XD It's a conflicting set of emotions! Things like your phrasing so that, "You have it where" you're talking about specific things before making overly exaggerated claims about how these, "Ancient castles are almost an ageless thing that's existed for possibly millions of years." I don't know what it is! It's terrible, but I keep coming back..! Keep doing what you're doing! Haha!
And can't wait for your review nor for the release of this game!
It's a cash-in. If not an outright scam. This happens every time. Console players getting exploited. Look at The Last of Us remaster? Update the resolution and charge 40 bucks for it.
PC players fixed this game for free years ago. And now console players get to pay for it. Unbelievable.
From the video title I thought you didn't like the beta, but I guess not. I didn't really think it was all that worth it, especially with e3 around the corner I'll stick to the original game. Not enough changes, really most people wanted a scholar of the first sin treatment for this remaster.
Peter Taylor Nothing, because it's a remaster. A remaster, by definition, consist of (typically minor) technical upgrades, like higher resolution textures and improved audio quality.
Why were so many people expecting them to completely overhaul the game? It's a remaster. It's not like they lied about what it was going to be.
DreamcastGuy, ive played videogames since my days of Atari 2600 and nowadays i love my ps4 and my huge library of games but, i am starting to feel that i am not enjoying myself anymore and i feel like it has become a chore. Any advice?
Why talk as though you are comparing this to the original version of the game, when it’s clear you haven’t even played the original game? That wasn’t a chain backstab, and even then, that’s how backstabs have always worked in this game. It isn’t a new mechanic. Idk man. Research up or actually play the base game before trying to critique or review something like this.
Here's a 60 FPS patch you've had as a mod since launch for 20 bucks please five us your money goy look we made DARK souls all fucking bright and shiny. Oh you preferred the old one? fuck you, we're removing it from the steam store, buy our new trash.
Hmm, some of this doesn't line up with what I've heard thus far. I haven't had a chance to get my hands on it myself, but I haven't heard other people talking about changes to enemy hitboxes and the like... I'd be genuinely interested to see a deeper comparison if there are, indeed, bigger changes to the PVE than have currently been discussed.
The PC community has grown a good deal in a really limited time frame and there isnt any reason to believe the game wont be equally as addicting for Xbox players. The site states its something PUBG Corp wants to add down the road, perhaps as soon as the game is finished, as shown by a Microsoft representative.

The Honest to Goodness Truth on Pubg Warrior Pack
Nevertheless, its always tough to locate a trustworthy seller of a Black Desert account on account of the risk involved in these sorts of transactions. Bring on such a desert map! We guess because its about becoming the lone survivor, even if theres a lot of teamwork on the way.
The game will probably remain in early access for some moment. It continues to attract new players that are hoping to get that sweet, sweet chicken dinner. This usually means youre have to begin downloading the game at midnight, and after that begin playing once PUBG is installed. There isnt just one play through of Black Desert that ends up the same because its up to the player to determine the method by which they level. Because of this, players will need to use the Xbox Game Preview program to be able to play the game. Xbox One players might have to wait somewhat longer for the full-release edition. They will also be able to purchase some exclusive content in the form of special cosmetic packs.
