    I wonder if there will be a PC port. This sounds like the kind of game that could do decently well on the PC.

    Either way, thumbs up to a company for doing something unique for once.

    I'm probably going to rent this at the very least. I may end up buying it, but I dunno, I bought Demon's Souls and ended up trading that in fairly quick. Though to be fair, I never actually tried to play that game very well.

  • OghulkOghulk whale oil beef hooked james k. polk middle schoolRegistered User regular
    I highly doubt there'll be a PC port

    actually I have no reasons really to doubt it, but it just doesn't seem like something FROM SOFTWARE or Atlus will do

    Demons souls was, at least for me, a game that demanded you know how to play it well and or learn while dying. I think it took me 4 hours to get through the first level, but even though it was incredibly hard I never had a death where I felt was the games fault, it was always a mistake on my part or something that I could improve on.

    Oh yeah, definitely, the main thing I've heard about these games is that when you die, it's always because of something you did and not a cheap shot by the game.

  • Mortal SkyMortal Sky FONOTUNE Electric FairytaleRegistered User regular
    I have 1-1 memorized to a pretty decent extent, barring a few item drops that you only get at the beginning of a playthrough. My memory has gotten worse because I haven't played in about a year, but at one point I could even tell you specific enemy placements relative to doors and how to counter every trap.

    There are a few sections that are pretty cheap, namely 5-2. Fuck 5-2 so hard. Also, 5-3 is pretty ludicrous without major cheesing.

    Demon Souls is only on PS3 right? I seem to recall wanting to play it but not having a PS3.

    Yeah, Demon Souls is PS3 exclusive whereas Dark Souls is on both the PS3 and 360.

  • MorivethMoriveth Nobody suspects a thing... Registered User regular
    Yeah. Dark Souls is PS3 and 360, though!

  • Magus`Magus` Registered User regular
    Yeah, I might rent it! I'm kind of broke so sadly I can't provide the company with more money, but I'd like to see them succeed. Also I haven't a good hard game (that isn't fake hard) in a long time.

    Last time I pushed myself, I think, was finishing God of War II on Titan difficulty.

  • Mortal SkyMortal Sky FONOTUNE Electric FairytaleRegistered User regular
    I had a few pretty good kills in multiplayer.
    Once I faked out a guy by acting like a mage (my main character was a battlemage) while fighting a mage. He countered me with anti-magic field. In the time it took him to do that, I came around the corner, rolled past his homing soul arrow sprays (not an easy thing on the 1-2 walkways) and axed him.
    I should note here that the sole weapon I used besides an enhanced longbow was the axe I spawned with, raised to Quality level. Not the most efficient weapon but damn I learned to love it.

    I really have to go back and beat Demon's Souls. World 5 can really go suck a dick, though. There's literally nothing enjoyable about it.

    I'd rather go through ten miles of 2-1 hearing nothing but those bells than play 5.

    Yeah, but both Gamefly games I get are already here. There's no way I'd get it in time before everyone that wants it gets a copy and the availability drops to 'low'.

    It's much easier when you get a friend.

    And/or become an archer. Seriously, Viscuous Bow + 5 breaks that place wide open. (Also, turn the brightness up.)

    I'd like try a Sorcerer.

    Whether that involves having to hide behind a shield the entire time, is something I'm worried about.

    Shield? Mages don't need shields.

    I like the tone of that second trailer, but the Bartholemew one was amazing.

    Oh my god
    Please help me


    Those six words summarize Dark Souls in a nutshell.
