I would like to know more about this section:
"- There will be advanced evasion and attack techniques depending on equipment and control input."
I'm glad that the auto-guard drains MP and isn't permanent, but I still fear it'll be too easy. I wonder if a manual control mode will be implemented?
I do agree though. Developers need to stop with the widening of appeal comments. All it does is cause chaos.
I don't think it will be too easy at all... it will be just like holding a block button that depletes a stamina guage while you do. just that in this case the stamina gauge will be your magic bar. I am also guessing that your magic bar will depelte faster or slower depending on what kinda attack you are blocking and you will have to cast certain spells too boost your defence against certain attacks.
Nothing about that seems too easy, unless you think a game like demon's souls is easy, cause even there all you had to do was hold a button to block :)
As for the evasion and attack opyions, Ia m assuming the gambits you can set will be very elaborate. So you can set gambits for certain attacks or defence moves to make based on specific situations eg. after an evade.
