Gametrailers reveals new in game footage from Demon's Souls
I have this already having imported the Asian edition that has full English Support - minus the manual. Everything else, subtitles, excellent cast, etc. is in English.
Same here. I bought two copies. Gotta love being a Black Phantom.
Wait, did anyone else watch that vid??? Is the NA version gonna have that hero music?! That so gonna mess with the deadly atmosphere of the game. Especially if it was being played on 3-1 , 3-2, 5-2, etc. Yeah, those levels that you wish you werent exploring and you wish you had a spotlight instead of a glowing rock.
3-1 is so scary....and 5-1 is pretty creepy too. I haven't even gotten to 3-2 or 5-2 yet... =(
If you play Fighting games, Monster Hunter, Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden, or just good at action games in general, this game is not hard like people say. If it gets too hard just call out a soul to help you. Personally I think this is ment to be a 1 player game though, and co-op only if you have trouble, or after u beat it once by yourself then u can have fun w/ friends. If you co-op w/ an experienced player when your first time through, it's just gonna be too easy and the game would probably not gonna be as fun. But again not everybody's good at games so they give u that option of getting help from other players. Edit: Oops, was trying to reply to #2 - Superduper09.
I agree. I'm so used to Monster Hunter i block instinctively during my first few hours in Demon's Souls. Makes me wish the bosses on Demon's Souls were like the wyverns in Monster Hunter... moves more. G-rank Kusha one on one is awesome.
well i seriously recommend not to summon any helper in your fisrt playthrough. a high level blue phantom will ruin the game for you. but if you have a friend who is also in his first playthrough then i guess its OK you two co-op.
it looks awesome!
sleeper hit this winter??? i think so
I'm not really into RPGs at all but this really got me wanting to experience it and I likely will.
This was the game I was thinking about when I saw Sony's motion control demonstration with the sword and shield!
@ Zone of Enders, there's a level cap, so you can't have a high level helper anyway. If you're level 10, say, the highest level someone can help you is 20. It's a 10 level gap in either direction, that's it.
Black Phantoms make everything a pain in the *** ! I hate the message when a Black Phantom arrives... Makes me totally thrilled! Demons Souls best sleeper 2009.
I heard this game is very dificult. What actually makes it dificult?, Can anyone who has the game explain it to me?. Thanks.
Carelessness will kill you. Cliffs, wrong way to dodge, wrong way to block, wrong way to fight, wrong magic to use, wrong place to fight a particular enemy, wrong way to fight a boss, etc.
It's difficult for several reasons.... Let me try to explain. I chose a thief as my class the first time I played it. (I too imported the game, Chinese/English version, bought off Ebay.) It was fun, evading was really easy, and my dagger, though maybe not too strong, still worked fairly well. The problem was, I took a lot of damage. Even the crappiest enemies had a chance to kill me if I wasn't being careful. I did my best to evade, since blocking wasn't too good with my stamina being too low, but I managed to press through. One of the biggest problems I hit early on was I died too easily. In this game, you're going to die, like it or not. You'll misstep and fall, like I did recently with my high level character, and you'll die. You'll roll the wrong way, get hit and die. You'll run into enemies with fire damage, and you'll have low fire resistance, and you'll die. Okay, so what? When you die, you start back at the beginning of the level. And if you were a human before, you're a soul now-your life gets halved, or with the Cling Ring, you'll have a 1/4 cut from it. And you start from the beginning. This was (and still is) inexpressibly frustrating for me, since all enemies respawn, and you have to fight your way back through. The good news is, the souls you had gathered-currency, taken from fallen enemies-remain wherever your bloodstain is, where you died. The bad news is, if you die again before reaching your souls, you lose those forever. Since my thief wasn't the greatest fighter, I often lost many souls. This was also very frustrating. I had to stop playing because I wasn't getting anywhere. To be honest, the game wasn't much fun anymore. All I did was die and die again: even the easiest enemies would kill me. Finally my friend suggested I start over, with a knight as a class. I did, and everything was much, much better. The knight deals more damage, takes more damage, and can use a variety of weapons and shields early on. I was having fun with the game again; I was killing enemies, I was dying-of course-but I could easily come back. I killed the first boss and moved on to the next one, which, I'll admit, I had some trouble with. But I did it in the end. And the game really is fun. =) So to answer your question, what makes Demon's Souls hard? A tl;dr version: -enemies do a lot of damage, even crappy enemies, and they only get harder. -class matters very much how you enjoy the game as a beginner. My suggestion, choose knight when you first start. Restart with a different class later if you'd like. -dying causes you to start over from the beginning with all enemies respawned (except for boss enemies). If you were very far along, expect to go all the way back. -dying also causes you to lose your souls. Don't die again before getting them, otherwise you'll lose them for good. And that's all I can think of for now. Don't let the difficulty put you off, it's a really great game! Oh yeah, if you're a human and you're playing online, a black phantom may break into your game. That's another person who's become a soul and wants to get their body back. They won't bother you unless you're a certain level though, so don't worry too much. My advice is, summon blue phantoms, you'll see their soul signs on the ground, if your game is broken into. I wrote a lot more than I intended. =\ PM me if you have any questions, I'll do my best to help. I really highly recommend this game! =)
Thanks for the explanation guys. Bubbles for you two :)
LOL,I'm on my first play as thief,no armour either,just going around in robes :) but I have a massive advantage in agility meaning I get around the back and critical hit quite easy,but I can die quite quickly. I've never summoned but have been summoned,and until my 2nd play i'll do it like that.
Everything I have seen and heard of this game only serves to fuel my need of it.I hadn't even heard of this game until a month or so ago.Lamenting the lack of quality rpg's and then this appears out of nowhere.Any confirmed NA release date? I know(presume) this year,hopefully fall? The co-op supports up to 4? Someone else had remarked that it borrows from D&D in some respects.Day one.
According to the developer there is going to be a Fall 2009 NA release date. My thoughts on the game: I'm a little nervous about buying this since I could see my self not being able to beat the tuterial its going to be so hard
Co-op does not support 4 people. You can summon two Blue Phantoms (allies) and a Black Phantom (enemy player) can invade your game while you have your human body on a level you havent killed the boss yet. You can be a Blue Phantom to be summoned or a Black Phantom to invade peoples games.
According to my gamestop register it is October of this year.
You can invade someone else's game and help or.......perhaps hinder them!? and they can do this to you!? Could you 'liberate' them of there equipment if you were so inclined? Team up(temporary alliance) and take down bosses etc.. I need this game.one more thing,hours,would you say 50+? Thnx Chisox =)
You cant take their armor/items unless they freely drop it for you to pick up. Also, there are times when some Black Phantoms help you kill enemies. Since they arent targeted by enemies they can easily kill them with fatal attack (stab through the back). However there are some Black Phantoms that pretend to help but suddenly turn on you when you least expect it... (what i do) I've spent 60hrs on the game all ready. If you are in the Nexus (the place where you select levels) then you could run to highest floor called the Pantheon or something and it shows the top players who have spent more hours and killed more people than anybody in the world.
You Bastard!! LOL That's treacherous right there! :) It is getting harder and harder to wait for this game's release...
60 hours+=Money well spent. Phantoms that suddenly turn on you at the worst possible moment...."what I do" lol,damn ruthless.Black phantom it is then............=)
Yup, that 60hrs was just a little past my first play through. New Game+ is a beast to fight in... especially since those high level Black Phantoms keep invading my game as a human body. Beware of a Black Phantom called Obama666 <--- fast, high level, dual weilding Meat Cleavers. He's invaded my game 3 times all ready and killed me all 3 times. One of our battles lasted for 30+ minutes... it wasnt a stalemate either. He was toying with me. I mean, he switched his weapons to dual shields and fought me almost killing me several times. He's one of those players who just enjoy fighting players. He does not have any armor on except that burlap head piece just to make himself look more sinister.
Sadly I halfway want to see that... but I know I'd only get to enjoy the spectacle for a short time. To see someone naked, with only a sack over his head, dual wielding shields. Simply sick and devious.... I like this game more and more with every passing day.
"He does not have any armor on except that burlap head piece just to make himself look more sinister." "To see someone naked, with only a sack over his head, dual wielding shields. Simply sick and devious" If I saw that sh!t while playing...?! Ack! D8 This game sounds insane
I have to say - this game is sooo freakin fantastic! I beat it with "good" ending with about 60+hrs...as a Thief. It only matters at the start...about 10hrs or so in, your class will be like any other. What you may want to consider is what sex you want to play as. Certain armor sets are male/female only. I was really pissed that I couldn't wear certain sets. I found the game only moderately difficult - as you level up you'll become awesome - only to get your as handed to you by a black phantom! LOL First level final boss is one SOB!!!! I'd explain white/black world and character tendencies - but it's too complex. LOL....it's tough to get certain weapons or armor as they are only available in full tendency. ThanatosDMC send me a PSN friend request to Grimhammer00...I could always use help with mean ass Black Phantoms! Ha! ---just remembered the time a Black phantom helped me with level 1-2...at the end he kept turning his back to me, I was confused. He dropped Miralda's armour set...which I accepted! And then I realized he wanted me to kill him....nice fellow, forgot his PSN id...but if you're here. Thx! LOL
I tried doing that. I was a Black Phantom and helped at 1-1 but the guy was to scared of me. He thought i was gonna kill him if he retaliated. I was showing my back to. But instead the guy just ran through the boss fog. I could have given him a ton of souls too. I just sent you an friend request. Anyway, i havent been playing on my PS3 after my Demon's Souls marathon. Now im uploading lots of movies on my PS3 to try to fill up my HDD. I still have 250+gb left. I thought Flamelurker was extremely hard... but then again i didnt know what its weakness was and i still didnt understand the game. I fought it with Long Sword +2 and nothing else. No sticky white stuff or magic or anything. Just Flame Ring and lots of Half Moon Grass. No co-op.
can you give me a brife info on what the classes are and which is better thanks
Classes are really just for starting equipment and starting stats. I chose the Knight class for his very decent starting armor and shield. Range/magic combat are nice but i rather go toe to toe with enemies. But your stamina wont recover as fast as the Thief class nor can you dodge/roll as fast. Being fast on PvP matches is sometimes a great thing especially if you can easily go behind an enemy and deal a fatal stab. Royal Class has the Fragrant Ring that recovers your MP. It's a pretty decent EXPENSIVE ring to start with as a mage since the Magician Class only has spices (mana potions) to recover his MP but has stronger stats leaning to magic damage. Lesson learned: there are a bunch of enemies that are very weak against fire damage or magic damage but extremely durable against physical attacks. http://demonssouls.wikidot.... Damn, ran out of bubbles.
I hope this game becomes the first game that the PSeye motion control is applied. Very applicable.
I loved oblivion when it first came on the 360 but this game looks far more challenging and has crazy looking bosses like monster hunter. When is this game coming to the US?
The trophies for the game look sweet too. Can't wait for 3D HOME trophies cause these would look mint in 3D.
Damn too many great games coming this year can't wait... It's good to be a PS3 owner.
It sure is. Only on PS3 can one play the list below. And I intend to buy all of these: - Tekken 6 - Modern warfare 2 - Demons Souls - Uncharted 2 - Fat Princess - Either Assassins Creed 2 or MAG Next year - God of war 3 - GT5 - FF13 - FF14 - White knight Chronicles - Yakuza 3
So they fight on the stairs and the enemy falls into the rock and the top half of the enemy disappears into the rock? Considering it is Gametrailers I'm not surprised they showed this.
Just wanted to chime in on how great this game is. Was really skeptical when I first saw trailers from Japan. Even 5 hours into the game at my friend's place, I wasn't quite convinced. I finally bought the game about a couple of months ago, and ended up spending 200+ hours on the game so far. The game truly grows on you. The best thing I find about the game is the depth and scalability that it offers. When I first started, I struggled to get through even the very first level without dying a lot. Now, it is a breeze for me to get through the first playthrough even without levelling much (the game increases in difficulty with each subsequent playthrough). Thus, you don't only level up your character, you level up yourself! It is that hardcore.
This one best RPGs out there, plated it 2 weeks after release. Had 3 chars , best was thief, mega dex mega dagger = easy money. If already got ds , get sacred2 soon have plat for that too, noib leval solo, I'm not one these sapnerds that get there mates to help em. When I fin a game it's alll me!!!
I also have Sacred 2. Great game, as well as being HUGE. 40 hours and I still have less than 15% of the full map explored. Simply so many things to do, it just keeps you going.
good to be one!
Any one want beta for Uncharted 2? PM me.
rele hopen its split-screen.
This game looks amazing, Like Oblivion but faster paced. There was an interview on the PSBlog with one of the developers, the good news is they're adding some stuff to the NA version as well as the ability to respawn at checkpoints, and not the beginning of the level.
Here is the video interview http://blog.us.playstation.... definitely watch this video if you have any interest in this game, i think it will explain why this game is a day 1 purchase, atleast for me it is
This game will have Home avatar stuff, they have 3 different armor suits you can purchase and they look sweet as heck in home. i purchased one and by far my favorite add on for my avatar in home.
Great game, hope they make a sequel.
RPG of the year. :)
