It should. I'm avoiding spoilers though, but if you guys want to be spoiled you can check the board. Already streaming the game.

People laughed at me for even mentioning anything about the story in DS.

Oh, but it does, as I just proved in the last few posts of the other topic.

In Demons Souls, story takes place through gameplay experiences in a vast game world filled with dynamic locations and encounters. Not through dialogue, text, or massive pre rendered cutscenes.

Hopefully Dark Souls will follow suit. It is a refreshing style not to have overt plot and story shoved down your throat through cut scenes for 5 minutes every 5 seconds. Also, I hope Dark Souls has an ambient/none existent sound track like its predecessor did. One of my favorite aspects of the original, letting the sound effects take center stage of building immersion and tension

I like the idea of a video game without music, because it is more immersive 10 fold. Telling a story through sound effects rather then a bloated score that bats you over the ear drums every second with flutes and horns like you are listening to a CD you bought at the Renessans Festival on you Ipod like Skyrim and Oblivion.

I will prolly grab it just cause I pretty much grab every game that releases for my game collection.

Although if it's anything like the first game I might not play it more then 1 day, have to be honest, I found the first game to be very boring and slow. I'm really hoping Dark Souls will be faster pace and more exciting to play.

Besides, story/lore isn't everything. I found Nier to have a great story, but everything else about that game was truly horrible and bland IMO. One of the very few games I actually regretted buying.
