It's not just Dark Souls. Shu is playing LIFE on New Game+.
Shuhei is a true gamer. I never did beat demon's souls OR dark souls. Didn't even buy dark souls 2. Still looking forward to bloodborne though.

Yoshida just loves games and gamers everywhere!

I'm surprised he is ignoring platinum games
both MS and nintendo managed to get exclusive from them.
Deadpoolio  +   72d ago
They really aren't that concerned with getting a mediocre game that wont sell amazingly from Platinum..

The only game they've made that sold well was Metal Gear Rising, and that had more to do with the name on the box than it being Platinum.

People can love Bayonetta all they want it sold poorly, Vanquish sold horribly after people found out it was a 3hr game...And NO people with common sense don't think it's awesome to play a 3hr game 10 times to get value out of it

Last year was huge for Sony. So many Yoshida fanboys now.

it's not as bad as the man-crush xbox fans have for phil spencer - the guy has only held the job for a few months, and the xbone fans are worshipping the guy like he's a messiah.

Damn, hardcore! I still have hardly played any of the games in that series yet...
Mega24  +   72d ago
I suggest you get them, at least Demon and Dark Souls 1, it will be frustrating, but rewarding at the same time when you complete them.
T3mpr1x  +   67d ago
Yeah I've got Demon Souls thanks to a sale on GameFly. Punishing!
OhReginald  +   72d ago
change of heart.

he called demon's souls "crap" and "an unbelievable bad game"
Transporter47  +   72d ago
Read the first article. I think it seems like he got frustrated because he didn't know how to play. That game can do that to you. I bet 100 percent that more then just him said that after the first 2 hours lol

Read the article your are linking to. If you don't, you make yourself look like a fool.

"There were framerate issues and the network was not up and running. "

From your own article.
Wedge19  +   72d ago
If you'd bother to read them, you would see that even within those articles he had a change of heart and thought it was foolish that they passed up on them initially.
dodgemoose  +   72d ago
Well you've taken that out of context. What he played wasn't the final build.

"What happened with Demon's Souls was until very late in the game's development, we were not able to play the game through. There were framerate issues and the network was not up and running. We underestimated the quality of the game and to be honest, the media in Japan did the same.
OhReginald  +   72d ago
yep and he was so confident in the final build that sony published the game to the western market....oh wait...

dodgemoose  +   72d ago
… which he has said was a mistake.

"Luckily, third party publishers, Atlus in North America and Namco in Europe [stepped in], and it really became a great hit outside of Japan. We definitely dropped the ball from a publishing standpoint, including studio management side," he said. "We were not able to see the value of the product we were making.

"I hope we won't make the same mistake again. I should have been more stubborn talking to marketing people here in North America and Europe."

Got anymore hate you feel the need to share?
OhReginald  +   72d ago
hate? I got nothing but love for shu and the souls series.

But hate me all you want. :)
dodgemoose  +   72d ago
'I got nothing but love for shu'

Your sarky attitude and negativity would suggest otherwise. :)
crusf  +   72d ago
He called it crap because it was horribly unstable and a buggy mess at the time. Now that the game has been vastly improved he can now enjoy it.
Farsendor1  +   72d ago
did you forget the rest of the article?

the build he played had multiple issues

Thus the early build, "the team tried to create a small piece of the experience that resembles the final product." That version had framerate issues, among other problems.
spacecat5050  +   72d ago
Good find Reginald, it's pretty obvious that Shu is in full PR mode just becuase Bloodborn is a sony exclusive.
ftwrthtx  +   72d ago
Dark Souls was a fun game but very hard for me.
edureboucas  +   72d ago
Rep+ for him after this...
Wedge19  +   72d ago
Completely agree. Shu is a badass and a respectable gamer.
Bathyj  +   72d ago
So bring back TENCHU!

Sony published, with the AAA polish its always deserved and never had.
Inception  +   72d ago
I second that

I really need a next gen Tenchu. It's like been a really long time since i stealth kills enemies from behind, put a poison food, hiding underwater, or grapling hook from one rooftop to another as Rikimaru or Ayame.
acharlez  +   72d ago
Dark Souls is where it's at!
SpinalRemains138  +   71d ago
I like Dark Souls too, but the PVP in Demons' Souls was just better.
dota2champion  +   72d ago
Didn't he stated that he didn't like Demons Souls because he died too many times?
mrpsychoticstalker  +   72d ago
Dark souls 2 is fun.

Dark Souls 2 is great, finished about 6 times already on the 360.

A shame From Software snubbed the X1 for their next release though...
Dante81  +   72d ago
FROM were always great, all the way back to King's Field/Shadow Tower. Those games were dark fantasy and hard as hell, too. Only NOW with this pathetically easy generation do they get recognition.
Wedge19  +   72d ago
I'm glad to hear that Shu is a respectable and hardcore gamer. I commend him and wish him luck on his second journey through Dark Souls II.
Sharius  +   72d ago
wow, this guy is a champ, he is almost better than many of so call gamers out there
