Yey! I'll be seeing you again Man Eater
If any PS3 owner who still hasn't picked up this awesome game (or hasn't given it a try), do yourself a favor and grab it.
Weren't the servers shut downed :o?
Nope. Atlus kept saying they would, but always extended it.
Atlus rocks. Persona 4 Golden is so F epic and they published Demon Souls, love that company.
and catherine, and the shin megami mmo games and other good games too
If the servers are still on I'm dusting this amazing game off and running through it again
Nope, and as of now there are no plans to shut it down either...
Yep... Atlus said they will be up "indefinitely" on the PS Blog... so whoever disagreed with you is not in the know. Plus it's white tendency right now. I prefer Demon's to Dark... I really wish Sony would have been more supportive of it, we'd probably be expecting Demon's Souls 3 right now. I read an interview where Kaz said not publishing and supporting Demon's in NA and Europe was one of their biggest mistakes. Guess they didn't think Westerners would like such a challenging non-shooter, but Demon's is a throwback to gaming past. The cut scenes and character design are some of the best this gen.
Yeah, they announced it and the Atlus forums blew up with outcries from the community so Atlus kept extending it. Now every time you login the announcement says it has been extended to such and such date and when you get to that date they just push it out again. So until the PS4 version of Demon's Souls is out or Atlus goes under it isn't going away. You can still do everything offline, but the online Pure White and Pure Black world tendencies events really help with getting those things done as well as getting rare items that only drop at the extremes.
This game pretty much stomped a hole in my @$$ and I loved every second of it.
Demon's Souls one the greatest games this gen if you have not played this masterpiece now is a good time.
I want to buy Demon's Souls. But some of my friends keep telling me for Dark Souls. Can i have a little bit of info which game i must buy it first? ^^
Start with Demons Souls and then buy Dark Souls. The stories aren't connected but the engine and concept are clearly the same.
They're both must play games in my opinion. Between the two, I think Dark Souls was better, but honestly it's only because of the more interesting world design and that's all objective. Know this though, which ever one you pick, they'll punish you relentlessly, but once you get the hang of it, there's no better feeling than mastering a Souls game.
personally, i perfer demon souls over dark souls. dark souls is way to easy, theres also to many bugs that have bosses and npcs kill them selves for you, taking the fun out of the game, so i would ignore your friends and go for demon souls and after play dark souls i guess...
That's funny because I can beat Demons Souls in a day. I can't see any advantages to Demons Souls over Dark except for the network. Seriously they improved in almost every way in Dark Souls. Lets also not forget that juicy lore.
Demon souls all the way!
@All Ok, looks like i will start with Demon's Souls. Thx for the info guys and oh, bubble + for all of you ^^
One of the best games I have ever played. A work of art.
Prepare to die fresh meats. I had my fare share when first released and it became one of my favorite games ever made.
I finished that game a couple of months ago. I need to get my hands on dark souls. Does anyone know if its just as good as demon souls?
sadly it doesnt prove to be a better successor , but its still a fun game
I personally think it's slightly better than Demon's Souls. They're both great but they also take place in two seperate worlds and technically arent related canonically. You won't be disappointed with Dark Souls though, not in the least.
Dark Souls is larger, and has a longer storyline. More variety of weapons and enemies. But Demon Souls has the Nexus, which more than makes up for small shortcomings. Atlus also never fucked up the dodge roll as they did in dark souls, even if your character is beefed up.
Which game is better, Demon or Dark Souls?
It's hard to say since they're pretty close, I'd say Dark Souls is better simply because you can no longer farm healing herbs and spices. Though Demon's Souls had a giant flying manta ray that shot giant spikes which I took down with a magical wind sword... They're both such great games that chances are which you like better is going to come down to the nuances.
masterpiece....... kaz was right demon souls could have been a ps exclusive on the level r uncharted and gow a hardware pusher
An excellent title and i would recommend it to anyone who loves a challenge (but there are plenty of tricks to make the beginning of the game extremely easy Crescent Falchion FTW)
I just hate the prison guard dudes .... they are the most scary things ever in a game apart from the fire breathing flying bastards. But a game that has to be played this is.
When it will be available in uk ?. :(
