    Any verdict on whether to pick it up for 360 or PS3?

    I am getting it on 360 to try and coordinate with my fighting game peeps.

    PS3 apparently has slightly better lighting, but no other differences.

    Also, yeah, I don't think retailers anticipated demand. I cancelled my Amazon order and am getting it from Best Buy today.

    Amazon normally rocks and I still have them for my MvC fix.
    Somehow I can't put it past you to just murder me repeatedly, Biz.

    I'm a very nice guy. Unless I explicitly invade, I try to genuinely help :).

    If I am red, though, I'll play as dirty as possible.

    Hey cockshits you might as well refund the other fifty nine dollars and ninety nine cents while you're at it because I'm going to Best Buy

    (except I can't because trying to cancel just gives me a generic error message. If I were feeling more conspiratorial I'd call that sleazy, but I'm not so instead fuck you)

    oh noes I kant play it on release day thanks obama

    You don't understand, all copies of the game will self-destruct if I don't get to play it before midnight tonight

    fine

    ARG!

    Same thing with me. Amazon is usually great so I guess they get a free pass this time.

    I was all planning on getting a six pack on the way home from work and screaming at the tv when I die every ten minutes tonight.

    :evil:

    you have to time a run to try to get to the middle of the bridge where there is a staircase down. If you avoid the oil spots on the bridge the fire is not an instant-kill.

    I think I will probably wait to play Dark Souls until it's been out for a few months. That way it will be cheaper and all the people who are way better than me will have written guides.

    God this game is haaaard (duh). Don't like how they gimped magic, mostly because I have fat fingers and am not the best at combat, but ah well. Playing a pyromancer and just beat the first boss (not the tutorial) by spamming flame and firebombs and doing that kickass drop attack. Dunno how I would have dealed with a melee character.

    I don't agree at all, probably because I have a different motivation to play the game. I don't care so much about discovering all the secrets and mysteries. I care about experiencing the combat and aesthetics, because those are the things I like most about Demon/Dark Souls. So I'll take whatever help I can find to get as much as I can from those two aspects.

    Also also I've had 3 moments where the game just freezes for like 10 seconds in the middle of an action, once during a boss, that caused me to die and it is a pain. What the hell, ps3

    Picking this up on Thursday. Would get it today but there is no way I'd be able to study for my test tomorrow.
    Man I can't wait for the dying to begin.

    To add to this, I don't have all the free time in the world these days, so I'd rather not spend hours banging my head against a wall figuring out the attack patterns for a boss when there's plenty of people who did that already and posted the results on youtube/gamefaqs/whatever

    Do not have a cow, mortal.

    Got to the blacksmith, now for a break and frisbee

    Got two options open to me, not sure which way to go

    summoned a person in to help me, but he wouldn't heal and eventually died

    also haven't died yet and oh look I have 7 humanity WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?

    how the hell do you play cooperative

    my friend and I keep trying to summon ourselves by drawing that white glowy thing on the ground using the crystal that the solaire of astora gave us, but it never spawns in the other guy's world

    we are not hollowed

    player 2 must be hollowed in order to join player 1's world, player 1 must be human.
    that's your problem! die, and then have him summon you.

    and do it in an out of the way place so no one else sees it.

    We just tried that

    I was human and he was hollowed. We both put the signs on the ground just in case. I couldnt see his, and he couldnt see mine. He did get summoned by some random guy, though.

    Why cant I see his sign? :/

    Edit: we are both part of the Way of the White covenant, too

    So far i've been too scared to use humanity to become human knowing i'll just die and lose it right away, so i'll most likely be jumping into a lot of other people's games to help. I'm on the 360 so maybe i'll see a few of you around.

    So confused by this game. Tried going the skell route and died for 3 hours and then I noticed the ramp down in the Fire shrine. Now I have a choice of fighting underground or fighting a bunch of ghosts(that i cant hit). What do?
