    I really like the look of the fight, as the guy said it reminds me of Gwyn. But not in a bad way, there are aspects of Gwyn's fight I really like, and if Artorias is hitting hard enough on a toon with 50 vitality, and breaking a +15 Balder Shield's guard in one hit despite them having 50 endurance, I'm going to love this fight. While it will be an unpopular opinion, it also reminds me of WoW in regards to the goop on the ground. I just hope that if I do Co-Op, people know to not stand in the fire haha.

    We just have to hope that Artorias can't be parryed, or it will be all Gwyn again. I wonder if players are able to use their left arm when using artorias armor, probably will because there's the Artorias shield, but still a cool idea.

    See I always find it amusing that when I do co-op for Gwyn, players always get confused when I parry him. But I just assume each time its that person's first playthrough. Still, so many claim the fight is easy but I see a lot of people who struggle with him whenever I play.

    The fight is actually pretty challenging if you are at reasonable lvl and don't parry him.

    Not with a spear haha. But yeah, I like to fight him while fat rolling to challenge myself more, of course during Co-Op I use a CMW spear but if my host isn't fighting him I make my host fight him. I actually really like the fight, but I just think people give it a bit too much crap sometimes.

    Even if you can parry Artorias, I just hope he is harder to parry. He seems even faster and more aggressive than Gwyn, as well with the stuff on the ground you'll need to pay attention to your footing more. So far it looks like a fun fight, though I'm wondering who the mystery boss is still.

    Yeah my head is filled with possibilities who the last boss could be, since I assumed without a doubt that Artorias would be the last boss...god this waiting is driving me insane!

    My only complaint is the cut scene, it just seems a bit unnecessary. I would have rather it been that you enter the room and he just appears, or there is no cutscene. I think it would actually be cool for a stealth start to a boss fight, no cut scene. When you enter the area after like ten seconds, Artorias runs in charging you. On your first playthrough, that would be *** awesome. Out of nowhere you get thrown into this fight when you were wondering if it would be like Sif. Maybe a little throwback to Sif in a sense, at Artorias' grave.

    Yeah, the first time I encountered Gwyn it was great when there was no cutscene just epic music and imminent death in few seconds : )

    I do kind of wish he didn't make those noises, I don't know they just seem really weird and detracting from the fight. Heavy inhuman breathing or just a silent monster is one thing, but Artorias Roaring just comes off a bit goofy to me. It's a very minor thing though.

    Did you see that move Artorias did when the dude died? Why the hell did they not give us that move set?

    I think that epic flip attack would be too awesome to be in the hands of players.

    We aren't to be trusted with such power, we couldn't handle the responsibility. I'd just invade people in Smough's and attack barrels with it while toxining myself. No man should have to go through the horror of seeing that.

    Aside from Artorias, I really want to see if we can get our hands on the sweep kick move from the E3 trailer. I Wonder what Hawkeye Gough is like as well and hope he can provide some answers for us about the four knights.

    It is highly likely that we can get our hands on the item (probably ring) that changes the kick animation to sweepkick. One could go full ninja with sweepkick + DWGR!

    I hope that there will be a patch that comes along with the DLC, fixing the pendant and of course the DWGR. I really cant wait for that gamescom trailer they are talking about. I hope it will come out as soon as gamescom starts.

    By the way, the opening of Artorias boss battle music is like Sif's theme isn't it?

    On another note, Artorias seemed sort of sad before that dark crap started surrounding him. Or maybe it's just me.

    Is it just me, or did Artorias's non sword arm seem to be broken. Dunno if he just lets it flop or if it has anything to do with the story.

    It sort of looked like he tried to say something before that weird dark crap took him over.
