    First time I've heard about this game.

    Never really read about Demon's Souls.

    Just watched the Quick Look and read some reviews.

    So this is a RPG Ninja Gaiden meets I Wanna Be The Guy in a dark world of death with a really cool persistent co-op/versus mode weaved in?

    O.O

    the multiplayer in this game is the most intriguing thing i've ever seen in a game

    basically each covenant has its own special things/tasks for multiplayer? one hunts down players in the book, another takes out contracts, one basically griefs players into attacking them, etc.

    I'm glad weapons have a much larger damage cap this time around, compared to Demon's Souls which wasn't anywhere near as high as these 600+s I'm seeing

    Also cool is that the bonuses to weapons and shields actually have physical effects on them

    And the entire world being like 1-1 but better is pretty sweet

    In what way?

    You couldn't roll properly in it, so it was worthless once enemies started to do damage

    it's much better this time around as i understand it

    rolling has a lot less built in invincibility, and wearing heavy armor lets you absorb a lot of shit that should straight up murdelize you

    you can see it in the Giantbomb quicklook if you don't mind watching

    Ah yeah, rolling is still shit with heavy armor, but like led said you'll notice that they're blocking full hits from bosses (which I think is combined shield and armor value, need to look into that)

    I would call it an action RPG that is an homage to old-fashioned dungeon crawling with interesting non-traditional multiplayer elements, in a beautiful dark fantasy setting. It's not really like Ninja Gaiden, except maybe in the area of the gameplay being challenging. And it's definitely not hard in the same sense as IWTBTG, because the challenge of that game is just using trial and error to figure out how to get past all the bullshit traps and stuff.

    RPG because exactly what you said
    Ninja Gaiden because its a VERY challenging 3rd person action slasher
    IWBTG because you die ALOT and it has alot trial and error

    I really didn't have anything to base what the game would be like because today is literally the first I have read of it and its all so brand new and fresh to me. But based on the reviews and trailers, those seem like accurate comparisons for the uninitiated.

    Demon's Souls wasn't much harder than Monster Hunter, it's trial and error like a lot of people have said

    If you get really stuck you can look up something on youtube

    I hope they don't have anything like stage 4 again, fighting enemies on tiny ledges is garbage

    Two posts above yours the guy said it wasn't trial and error but instead was a challenging action game

    re: the tiny ledges thing -
    They have that exact thing in the game. They said so in the IGN review.

    well there's some trial and error element to it but it's not even close to the same level of it as in IWTBTG

    So any word on whether or not this is actually more difficult and frustrating than Demon's Souls?

    Did you watch the GB quick look?

    It looks about the same.

    Somehow I only just found out about this game in the past week. It looks sooooo gooood.

    I'm really quite patient when playing games, so I'm looking forward to seeing how I handle this.

    I'm expecting something along the lines of

    Surprisingly IGN had a 25 hour stream of it that started Thursday and lasted until Friday at noon

    When I checked Friday morning they were at 17 hours, 43 deaths and 8 bosses down

    It definitely seems harder since they seemed to change the system from light-weight/rolling to heavy-weight/blocking (is what it appeared at least)

    I might actually just go out and buy Demon's Souls instead of this

    for one thing, I'm going to get my ass kicked mercilessly by either game, and I'd rather have paid $20 for that game than $60

    (I will try to actually play Demon's Souls this time around, though)

    I will say, Demon's Souls was probably one of the best buys I ever made

    Traded in some ratchet and clank game that came with my ps3, and got a brand new copy of Demon's Souls

    Also, what classes do the guys here (who are going to buy the game) think you're gonna play?

    Trying to decide between Pyromancer, Wanderer, and Warrior

    also I am going to be a Wanderer

    the shield/spear combo I saw in the quicklook seems good, but I want to experiment

    I'm assuming stuff like dual wielding or staves are not in this game?

    I agree, if only because Demon's Souls is a phenomenal game. And you can always ask for help. I'm always willing.

    dual wielding was in the first, so I assume it'll be back

    staves weren't, but spears/poles pretty much accomplish that

    how playable is dual wielding

    like, "doable", "very hard" or "nigh impossible"?
