Hah! The first time I played it, I didn't get it. It wasn't very long before I uninstalled it. It took youtube for me to realize there was more to it than the beginning areas.
Thanks for the lack of spoilers. I'm concerned about the movement speed and all of that, so I'm glad you mentioned it.
I'm going to assume they'll want the big weapons to feel weighty and hit with a lot of power and mass behind them, but the quick movement might be too much of a contradiction? Think it'll be hard to suspend disbelief there?
My biggest worry is if there will be a framerate lock for the third game. They haven't released an official statement saying it will be 60fps and with Dark Souls 2 it was announced almost 5 months before it launched. A lot of people are wondering about this and I for certain will not buy the game if it's locked to 30fps. Playing Dark Souls 2 in fluent 60fps was enough to ruin me. I can't even play the first game which is overall a better game due to the 30 fps cap and the dsfix halves jump distance and creates certain annomalies too.
