One of the great things about the Souls games is the collaboration - I'm enjoying reading that thread on RPS forums and seeing those guys feeling their way through the game. A pity there was 20 pages of PC-gamer whining before the game was released though

It seems really good, I had a couple of quick games last night and the new physics are good. A great improvement is the receivers turn their heads when they are ready to receive the ball, and DBs can't intercept the ball if they are not looking straight at it.

Cautiously optimistic at the moment. As usual there have been several almost-ragequits already. I'd almost forgotten what those are like.
