Or it may just be a dynamic that hasnt been settled on quite yet. You have to remember, when Dark Souls was displayed at E3 back in 2011, the game was four months from release. As of this E3, Dark Souls 2 is still almost ten months out from being released. I'm willing to bet that the folks at From are still playing with some of the elements of the game, figuring out how they should work, and this may just be one aspect that was modified from when they showed the first gameplay demo to now. This far out from release you cant look to much into all of the details of the play screen.
