One of the most underrated parts of the remake is the Camera custom filter feature. Being able to save those settings over gameplay is something all new games need to have.

After hearing the explanation, I think I dislike the change to Boletaria even more. "Gaming trends change" both feels really wishy-washy and cynical (unintentionally coming across as 'we were just blindly following what's trending, not doing what was right for the IP') and justifying it as a "much more realistic world" feels a little insulting when all the zhuzhing up looks high-fantasy inspired, more WoW than moorland. Edit: The Flamelurker redesign is also a big gaffe still. This emphesis on the eye patch and the whole "not tiangle for triangle accurate" spiel is disingenuous af. The entire design has changed. Flamelurker's design was pretty clear: human anatomy that's melty and demonic, lots of exposed bone and the head's basically a melted skull. They replaced this with a big rock monster. It's not like the redesign is slightly off, under the 'big fire boi' veneer, it's just a completely different design now. Belive it or not, I honestly don't even care that much, it's really the attitude that's riling me up. Just own the changes. This hand waving gives off mad "you think you do" Blizzard energy; so patronising.

From software makes games for the more hardcore crowd. It sucks to see a game made easier so it would appeal to the mainstream. The mainstream crowd have their games. mobile games are for them, leave are games alone.

Watching this when it came out made me give the remake a second chance, really trying to play my first soulslike. 50 hours later I actually finished the game, thinking about it night and day. Now I am watching the documentary again with a whole new set of eyes. Thanks for this NoClip and Blue Point!

technically impressive but incredibly sterile artistically. Huge gap with the original`s art direction, "photography" and overall atmosphere. Problem with Bluepoint is that they don`t have (no pun intended) soul, just craftsmanship. Naturally it isn`t evident with their remasters but it becomes totally evident in their remakes. They don`t propose anything new and there are no improvements over the originals, actually, it`s usually the opposite (Agro in SOTC`s remake for instance) ... Things you would expect in a remake, like the original re1 remake and even in lesser remakes like re2 and re3, even when these last two aren`t perfect they improve a lot of things from the originals. This remake, while unnecessary, should have been developed by FS themselves.

Funny that some people don't consider bluepoint remakes to be remakes, because they reuse the original gameplay code. So they are considered remasters at best. Painfully ignorant point of view but it is very much a thing.

Not a big fan of some of the changes made artistically for the reason of “realism”. Gates of Boletaria, for example. The change to a more Gothic style, I don’t think necessarily makes sense. It’s like changing the period at which the game is set. Or the Vanguard demon. As much as the new Vanguard looks amazing, it’s definitely far from a “more realistic” version of the original. It’s more of a completely different breed of demon and tells a very different story from the original one. Or the Adjudicator. It lost most of its flare, his gold and tattoos, to become a more generic fat demon. And when it comes to the music, it’s telling a story, it’s not necessarily “your friend”, and it sometimes disappears in the remake. But after all that, I still highly enjoyed the remake, and it hits the mark much more than it misses it.

Those sounds in the outro are awesome on my big vintage stereo speakers. Looking forward to enjoy the game with some good headphones. Should I ever get my hands on a PS5. Demon's Souls always was my favorite for the varied zones and the central hub structure. Worthy of a remake especially such an excellent one.

i think they make a mistake to go for a player to never go for the wiki. Player SHOULD be able to finish a game without going to wiki. BUT souls games have a charm of some misterious items being so strange ppl want to look it up to see whats it for. Those items and quests are only side things

The presentation of this game was spectacular. The amount of times i just stopped moving and appreciate what was on my screen is too much to count. I even remember one moment in the tunnel before flamelurker, i was looking at the large bones and you could see dust from the ceiling slowly fall down and stack up on the edge of the bones. Also, the stormking fight is forever etched in my mind. Thank you bluepoint for this amazing game, and thank you noclip for this amazing documentary!

Seeing how deathly protective Miyazaki was of the difficulty possibly at the cost of his own job, and how absolutely crucial that was to obfuscating the game's secrets, fostering a community of people helping in-game and on forums, and basically inventing a genre of struggle and reward, it really gives me pause in the difficulty/accessibility conversation.

19:43 I really disagree with the art change. That is very odd to remake a game and then change its style. Yeah trends come and go but that doesn't mean remakes should just change architecture like that. I don't really care because I don't play this game, I'm just saying that idea of modifying games that significantly when remaking them just sounds really bad. There's an overall theme in the game and changing architecture could clash with armor or other elements.
