Videogame Virgin: Demon’s Souls and the worst of all the things

"I’m having a real crisis of faith here. I find myself at a crossroads of life, and I don’t know which road to take. On the one hand, I could continue to hobble on, my mediocrity like an old wound from ‘nam that wakes me up in the middle of the night and makes me scare my kids and yell at my dog. Or. I could just give up the whole, “gaming,” thing like it never was a thing to begin with.

Demon’s Souls is a crisis of faith. And I’m Heath Ledger in The Order. Or something like that."

- Matt Brown (Culture, Demon's Souls, PS3)

Sounds to me as if the author may be stuck on the bane of most new Demon's Souls players "The Dragon God"......The author needs to stop playing Demon's Souls bypass Dark Souls and just wait for the more accessible Dark Souls 2 or 3.....

Demon's Souls a tough game, I had to help a couple of people past that point so Im not suprised if that's the case.

Haha with the dragon god, I had to do it alone because everyone always rushed and got me killed. That boss is super easy, you just have to move slow and when he's not looking and you basically won. If you die after the two arrows are holding him down with a tiny chunk of life then there is something completely wrong with you. Bosses like him are the reason demon souls was way better than dark souls even though they are both amazing games.

I beat the game on my own, selling it twice and rebuying it before finally completing the game after 250hrs. I didn't use one youtube video or strat guide, played it entirely solo. I beat the entire game with my own skills. It was pure bliss mixed with pure rage. Then I started NG+ which was much harder than Dark Souls NG+++ in my opinion. Anyway, it's my favorite series ever.

I ate Dragon God's lunch.

After he stole my milk money a good 4 or 5 times :(

Maybe he's shifted world tendency to black and Flame Lurker is being super agressive.....LOL

Flame Lurker was pretty damn hard...I still remember it has its name "ninja in steroids" in the message board.

Very funny article I ROFL especially on that one -> "Was I adopted?" hahahahahah :D that strike me at a blind spot, totally unexpected :P

Btw I haven't play Demon's Souls yet but u can say that I am & I feel exactly the opposite of what this guy say he is/how he feels about himself etc, I was always the best on any game between my friends/relatives etc & every1 was crying like babies when they wanted to compete with me on some game/any game :D

So I must admit that I am very curious about this game & I find my self asking again & again "is it really so hard or those ppl r just casual-noobs who is incompetent when the game they play is a little challenging?" I will find out sooner or later.

I just want to say surprisingly the Demon's Souls servers are STILL up. Decided to start a new character this morning and was pleasantly surprised that they were still up.
Summons75  +   711d ago
yeah, They always say they are going to take them down just to see how many people are still interested in the game. Every time they do they have way more than enough people playing to justify them keeping them up. I'm just glad Dark Souls 2 is going back to dedicated servers so we won't have to feel the pain of P2P anymore.
Myst  +   710d ago
Yeah thankfully they learned a lesson about it and are going to rectify the problem :p

whats p2p?
Myst  +   710d ago
peer to peer. Basically a connection that is established by one person and for the other person to connect they connect to that person instead of to a server. The problem with this method is that if the person has a bad connection the gameplay could be choppy due to the person's upload (?) speed, or perhaps just speed in general.

And I thought they'd taken them down for good. Maybe I should pick it up again... and have it thoroughly kick my ass once more...
Myst  +   710d ago
Yeah I was looking at my shelf and just thought to myself "Hmm..wonder of I should.." before I knew it I saw the white wisps (other players) and their various messages on the ground. I don't think this game will go down for a while now.
