"Fixed glitch where Wheel Skeletons couldn't equip their Ring Of Fog and use Tranquil Walk Of Peace."

Just imagine... Jesus christ.

You heard it here first. /s

@BiggCMan: Someone should make a mod for the PC version that replaces most of the enemies with wheel skeletons. That would be awesome and infuriating at the same time.

@NYC_Gamer:

I'm playing Demon's Souls thanks to PS+ and this game is f@<#ing awesome!! I'll play Dark Souls right after I finish it. I'm buying these games on release from now on.

HarryMasonHerpderp1174d ago

Welcome to the Souls club my friend!
Praise the sun for sticky white stuff.

JoySticksFTW1174d ago

Oh shoot. Demon's Souls hooks another one.

The games are crack addictive.

skyrim1174d ago

Holy poop im excited hopefully its still has everything we love about the souls series.

danieldeath1173d ago

Do you even praise the sun ...

skyrim1173d ago

Sometimes..............only sometimes

MattyG1174d ago

I still have to finish the first. It's daunting, but I'll take it on at some point.

BoNeSaW231174d ago

Stockpile Thomas can help you out with that ;)

SegataSanshiro1174d ago

Hoping for a Sega Saturn port.....people must not forget what happens to them when they're not playing their Saturn......

jon12341174d ago

lets just hope they dont f--- up the gameplay up and make it more accessible for people...

_QQ_1174d ago

The originals aren't that hard as it is so i don't think that would happen.

darkziosj1174d ago

watchout we have a dark souls expert here.

xabmol1174d ago

I beat the entire game as a soul lvl 1.

True story,
The End.

bluetoto1174d ago

I know right? Heaven help us if they want to continue to grow their fanbase.

jon12341174d ago

haha, its all fun and games until the game starts going down the dead space and sim city route, then we'll be sorry :(

but seriously they already have a fan base, they kind of dissapointed me with dark souls, i hope they can redeem them selves with part 2 and return to their demon souls glory days

Good to know I'm not the only one that preferred Demon's Souls.

bluetoto1174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

jon that fanbase is smaller than you think bud. If a company isn't growing it is dying, plain and simple. They are not interested in just copying and pasting with a new coat of paint and no gamer should want their fav series to become stagnate and stale like cod. Deadspace3 was the brainchild of a greedy exec looking for ways to tie in an online pass, not the devs trying to improve the gameplay.

Check the numbers of sales for demons souls and dark souls and you'll see they are losing fans, not gaining. Why in the world do you think they changed directors? Because the series is doing so well?

It sure isn't because the series was growing the way they think it should and this great series should be available to more than a few who are blinded by their own reasons. my opinion of course, except for the sales, those are facts, look em up.

and to me demon's souls was a hell of a lot easier than dark souls with how you could manipulate the world tendencies and banish unwanted black phantoms from your game. love em both though.

jon12341174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

makes sense, i really wish they didnt have to change so much though...

DragonKnight1174d ago

You have no idea what you're talking about. Seriously just stop. If the Souls series fanbase were as small as you're attempting to claim, the following wouldn't be possible.

A)Demon's Souls wouldn't even exist outside of Japan. Sony were always very cautious about Demon's Souls because they thought there was no chance in hell it would sell well, but thankfully Atlus took the chance that it would. Thanks to fans of Demon's Souls, that game became Atlus' most successful endeavour in N.A. and they decided to leave its servers online until demand waned, which it hasn't even in spite of Dark Souls' presence.

B)Demon's Souls success is why Dark Souls exists at all.

C)The incredible demand for Dark Souls on PC lead to FromSoftware developing a PC port of the game. Yeah, such a small fanbase it has.

D)More demand for more Dark Souls content lead to the Knight Artorias DLC.

And finally, Dark Souls 2 exists because of how beloved the Souls series is and will be releasing on all platforms (except maybe Wii U I think). So to say that the fanbase is smaller than anyone thinks isn't backed up by those facts.

JP13691174d ago

How are they losing fans? In March of last year, it was revealed that Dark Souls had sold 1.6 million worldwide, while Demon's Souls had managed just over a million. That's a significant increase when you consider that Dark Souls released just 6 months prior in Japan and 5 months in the rest of the world. Contrast that with Demon's Souls, which was release in February 2009 in Japan and October of the same year in North America.
I guess the point I'm trying to make, is that you don't know what the hell you're talking about.

DragonKnight1174d ago

@JP: bluetoto is using vgchartz numbers. In short he has no facts, only the skewed numbers of vgchartz. He ignores everything that shows that Dark Souls is a success and has a dedicated fanbase and is just trying to argue in favour of casualization. He likely sucks at playing the game and thus is wishing for an easier time.

grassyknoll1174d ago (Edited 1174d ago )

Keep the hell away from my hobby. It's people like you that ruin gaming.

j-blaze1174d ago

dood just stop, many games were ruined because of this "broadening the fanbase" because devs/publishers have no idea how to do it right, instead of better marketing, improved visuals and gameplay or better story to gain more sales and fans they change the main theme or core element of the game and turn it into something generic and mainstream, i don't want this to happen to any of my favorite franchises!

I'm a loyal Darkwraith and I still agreed.

Bet it was people who never even played the game >.>
