i was going to import this game, but i can wait tilll fall 09.
but common sony pace em out a little more our wallets can only take so much abuse b4 xmas lol
Pretty sweet news. Another game to have an eye on. Reviews say it's pretty damn good.
I was about to import, too.. was trying ebay for the past couple days with no luck. Guess it was for the best! And knowing Atlus, they'll have some awesome pre-order goodies that come along with a purchase. I can't wait to hear more!
its on pla asia right now just got new shipment i'll wait mybe the us will ahve extra stuff
I`ve been think about getting it, Mr.Bun.
HD, me and Bun have been playing this game for a couple weeks together. Its really a great game. When PSN gets xgame chat it will be SO MUCH better.
Ima be super honest... at first i though this game would suck but now.... i might have a look at it since its getting great reviews, I wanna see 4 my self, so... until then i wont make a call if its good or bad
Good just saved me some money.
bad news for my WALLET! lol :)
Thank you Atlus, for giving me one more reason to wanna tattoo your name on my ass.
I think I should have waited, lol. I've only had time to play it for a couple days so I haven't gotten very far in Demons Souls yet. Then again, after inFAMOUS there's a good two to three months of nothing I'm interested in playing so perhaps this will be it... I'm glad to see Atlus grabbed this one for release in NA though... It's a bloody hard game, but it's also a very solid game. Certainly not for the faint of heart....
Hmm I too was thinking importing the asian version. But importing from US/Canada is a lot cheaper. cant wait!
Not only is my wallet taking a beating, but I am running out of shelf space for my games. Should I just buy a CD case and put all the games and books in there? Naa, the clear plastic box is too hot.
Very good news. Demon Souls and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 will get along just fine together :-)
Yeah I too was thinking about importing this game, today as a matter of fact. Honestly I dont know if I could wait though considering that every other game coming out this winter is gonna already take most of my leisure time. Man oh man, I bet its good, but its bad enough I have too many games to play now. Hmm,, I will see how I feel after I get the platinum trophy from inFamous.
..is freaking insane. This is one of those games that really gets my heart pumping and makes me feel reeeally uneasy while progressing. The atmosphere in this game is superb, with nice graphics to boot. Bosses are epic and challenging and you really get a sense of accomplishment when you defeat one. EPIC EPIC EPIC game. It's a shame most people will put this game down for its difficulty, unique online features, and no voice/text chat during co-op.
I've been playing this games also, and I can attest that this is a great game for old school gamers and rpg fans.
Same. Had it on order from play-asia.com and canceled it with this news. Still getting the Siren game on disc from play-asia.com, though.
on the other hand, I'm glad that more people will get to enjoy this stellar game. It's so good that I actually would buy it again, especially if it comes in a collector's edition. I've already logged 76 hours into this friggn' game. Easily the best JRPG this decade. Outclasses almost everything else in terms of difficulty, atmosphere and just sheer - punishing - fun. Very excited for those of you who haven't played it yet, you're in for a real treat! (And some pvp pwnage when in online mode :) )
I hope they let us invite our specific friends on to our game.
Looks like I need to keep playing so that when you get it I'll be way too strong for ya. 12
luv this game. :D
Looks like The Twelve will invade our games and kill us. Btw, Pennywise plays the game everyday. When, i was on my Armored Core 4 Answer marathon he was playing Demon's Souls nonstop too.
Good sh!t, I'm glad this game is coming to North America. I'm kind of surprised that Sony isn't publishing it themselves, but good on Atlus to bring it to the western audience. I bought the Asian/English version on the day of it's release and it WILL satisfy those looking for a hardcore fix. I've been playing the game and it is hard. And the online functionality is great. If you're in your physical body you can summon others to fight with you to defeat a stage or it's boss. If you're in Soul form, leave your Soul Sign and others can summon you to help them defeat a stage and boss. Demon's Souls is an amazing game of severe complexity and will reward you for every inch of progress you make.
ThanatosDMC, you sure do love that Armored Core4!!! lol
Atlus seems to be picking up a lot of good games lately. ;)
Yea, they're on the up. :p
Someone need to fill the void left by SE. Good very good news for Action RPGs lovers. I wasnt prepared for TWO news rpgs this winter, now I need to choose between this baby and WKC, besides Persona remake for my PSP and some other coming. End of Eternity is on the horizon as well. I think the rpg dry is coming to an end.
It's not your typical RPG, it's mostly a hardcore hack and slash type of game. It does have a good story, but like some Atlus DS games, it's not for the faint of heart and can feel very repetitive after a while due to the length of the battles and/or how easy it is to die.
whas the chances if it making its way to europe
I really hope someone finds it in their hearts to publisher it in Europe, but it could depend on how well it sells in North America.
Indeed more than likely it will depend on the sales in NA as you said, still heres hoping though looks like a proper hardcore game don't get all too many of them that often.
But they've only done languages for Asia, Japan, and English speakers. This was out of the gate as well. I'd assume it would make its way there depending on sales in the U.S. Still, you can import from Asia (not Japan) and the U.S. in the future and play it without issue. It's $65 on play-asia.com right now, not including S&H.
Just import it, no problem whatsoever.
Yes, I will import this baby, my mouth waters when I see it played. I can honestly say that this game is EXACTLY what I've been wanting for a long while.
well that will quell people who wanted this game to come to NA.
or until we get confirmation about WKC from Level 5.
what confirmation do you need ? It's happening , and there are even vids of the english build already . All that's missing is a more precise date , probably during e3 or soon after
Is the surge of complaining about the game when it hits the NA masses. I have a feeling that Demon's souls message boards are gonna be a mess for a while when this game hits NA.
Please bring it to Europe. We love JRPG's MOAR!!
we do we really really do. if it comes to europe im buying it for sure.
DS is a great game. I am glad to hear that it will be out for all PS3 owners to play. By then I will have gotten my platinum trophy. I think now is the best time for me to be playing this one... later in the year there are wAY too many games scheduled to release. But good news!!!!
a september/october release would be nice.. this plus wkc should satisfy my rpg craving.. oh yeah, there's that ex-xbox-exclusive TOV.. PS3 king of rpgs soon!
valkiri chronics! i dont remember the name but its sega exclusive for ps3, and its SRPG!! it suppose to be really good but as usually sony dont spend money on their titles advertising!! but they make it up by making more amazing games!! if people dont bother to search for what the buy then they dont deserve amazing games!!
its Valkyrie Chronicles Aka: Valkyrie of the Battlefield this game is full of win trust me .__.
i'm tempted. i've only heard good things about this game
Will continue to consider.
Sony bring the noise to e3.
I just got it and started playing yesterday. The same thing happened with White Knight Chronicles, the day after I started playing my newly received import copy (a few weeks ago now) they had a post on the US PS Blog officially confirming it's coming to America. Oh well, I'm enjoying the hell out of these games NOW, while everybody else still winds up waiting until the fall or winter. I may buy them again, though, but I dunno if it's worth it. Demon's Souls is already full English, so I won't buy it again. White Knight Chronicles, on the other hand, is really really addictive and fun, but I have no idea what's going on with the story and I doubt I can play online with North American version owners when it comes out, so I may buy the NA version.
more good new for ps3 owners
My poor wallet.
I kinda dont understand the late release , given how it's already entierely in english and would mostly need us servers . But hey most werent expecting the game ever , so good , news . I already own my copy , but i might rebuy it just to support atlus efforts PS : thinking about it , it maybe have some kind of bonus thrown it , wich would be awesome
day 1 buy for me, I smell haters approaching in this thread.
Sony is rolling deep this year.
so ill pass. on the other hand, it does look interesting. so i might rent it. but the second i start cursing at my monitor and pounding my fist against the wall, im sending it back.
That will happen on the first level I assure you. :P
Kind of depends. When you die, it's usually your fault and not because of unreasonable control issue or cheap enemy (though it does have camera issues every now and then.) I tend to get frustrated too when I die too many times, but weirdly I didn't with this game. I know I screwed up and I did have control over my action. Some people have problem with the fact that when you die, you have to start again from the beginning of the level, but repetition is necessary to learn the environment and enemy. Think of it like Mario. And you can make short cuts in many areas or learn to use another route to avoid unnecessary fights.
It really isn't that hard. In the beginning, before you level up and get used to the fighting it is VERY hard. But so was Elder's Scroll in the beginning when you ventured into a cave before leveling up. Once you level up and really learn how and when to fight it is much more managable, and like Schem_a said when you die it is most likely your fault and very fair. When I die it is usually when I get impatient and try to hack and slash my way past an enemy. If you are not patient and careful, even a normal grunt enemy type can, and in most cases, own you. you really need to use evade moves, parry, slash, roll, and all the move set, and in some cases trickery to suceed.
..but he says he hates hard games so I'm guessing hes one of those people who gets frustrated quickly. When I got this game I died a lot on the first level but I didn't get frustrated. The game isn't cheap in it's difficulty and really forces you to be a better player by owning you over and over. There were a couple times where I felt the urge to toss my controller tho. I was doing world 1-4 and was doing decent..died a couple times here and there..but I finally got the level down and made it to the last mob in front of the boss portal. I mess up and he kills me. Ok I work my way thru the level again but I mess up part way through and die. I had a good amount of souls that are now gone forever. Oh well no big deal...work my way back to the last mob again and.... he kills me again lol! This happened like 6 or so times. I would always mess something up and he would one shot me. I got fairly frustrated but when I finally did get to the boss I beat him in one go and it made me feel GREAT!
Really glad I didn't decide to snag one of those £60+ copies from Ebay a few weeks back.
This and White Knight make the PS3 the RPG console this year.
demon souls is a day one purchase for me!!
It' s hard, very, very hard, and I probably won' t see the end. But I' m happy I played it anyway, a great experience, I think a lot of developers should look at this game to see what a great atmosphere is. A fascinating experience, enjoy!
This is the best news i've heard all day. Day 1 buy for me!
I've heard some VERY good things about this game
Game looks really good
Hey this is random and of topic but does anyone know if the Uncharted 2 beta is also available to people who buy inFAMOUS here in Australia?
You'd probably have to ask the retailer.
