Making a deal with Demon's Souls

Bitmob - You might remember my 30-minute dip into From Software's harder-than-hardcore role-playing title Demon's Souls last week. I've put a few more hours into it since that first play session, and I think the two of us have established an interesting "working relationship." Basically, the game has agreed not to help me in any way, and I have agreed to keep playing it. (Demon Souls, PS3)

Demons Souls is an EXCELLENT game... Everything complained about is what made it so damn awesome

"Demon's Souls: ...and it's full of guys you aren't even close to being ready to fight yet. See? One of them just looked at you, and you died.

Me: I had like 5,000 souls, you asshole."

5000 souls mean nothing. Even for a starter player that knows what he/she is doing even a little bit. I lost more than a million and didn't overreact this much.

"The other main thing I'm picking up is that I'm on my own. The game won't tell me where to go, what to do, or even how to use the goddamned bow (I figured that out by myself, don't worry). The payoff here is that after a little trial and error -- mostly error -- I figure out a path that will work for me. This process is way more satisfying than I expected it to be.

"Hey, I figured it out!" I tell Demon's Souls when I finally make some progress. "Aren't you proud of me?"

Demon's Souls does not reply to that, because it is an asshole."

If you seriously need f*cking on screen instructions for how to use the bow, then just don't play Demon's Souls. Actually, don't play anything, seriously. Oh... wait a second. This is a Bitmob article. It all makes sense now. All this bitching and crying about trivial crap...

You didn't have to read it then. If you were capable of critical reading, you'd notice that this article was tongue-in-cheek, and although there was some complaining (as I'm sure even fans of Demon's Souls were wont to do at times), the author is actually enjoying the game. Jesus.

Some ppl want easy ass 5hr games that hold your hand all the way through.. Demons souls throws u in hell blind folded & thats why its so damn great!

Looks like idontgetit gets it, and Blacktric doesn't. Demon's Souls is one of my favorites games from this generation or any other. I bought Rage cheap recently, but instead of playing that mediocre game I've been playing through Demon's Souls again. Glad they extended the servers, but I do wish they made it easier to help people if you want to, especially friends.

Yes and you sure did get it. Here's the thing; I am pretty much capable of critical reading. Hell, I'm pretty sure that even better than you are at it. Here's another thing; Bitmob is a horrible website that produced countless horrible articles that were written in a dead serious manner. There is no tongue-in-cheek writing here nor anything that resembles it. So stop acting like most of the pseudo-intelligent people here that are trying so hard to cover up their insecurities by insulting other people. Because it is really starting to get pathetic.

I see no reason not to take everything this author says as dead serious.
