haha Great read. Reminded me of my first playthrough... oh boy that wasn't a pretty sight
I hate that freak. What's worse is that there are TWO of them and they keep knocking me off the edge!! Anyways, yes, this was HILARIOUS. Love this game, it's my GOTY 2009
I'm playing through my second game and realized that I need to level up more before I can beat some bosses. Thankfully I have friends around my level that have been able to help. So far on my second play through I've only had to get help with the False King. I was telling a friend about how much I enjoyed Demons Souls so he went out and bought it. I'd see him playing for about 20 minutes and then he'd log out. I messaged him and asked him what he thought he replied, "Either I really suck or this game is really hard because I keep dying." I asked him where he was dying and he replied, "The red eyed knight keeps killing me." I asked him if he'd leveled up any he said, "No." I explained that even though the game gives a lot of latitude with respect to where you can travel based on tendency, just because you can go there doesn't mean you should be there. This game isn't for everyone and I know several people on my flist that couldn't handle the game, it really is a pleasure once you beat a major demon and see the words, "You have been revived" in capital letters flash across your screen. :)
Those things suck big time.
You can tell he doesn't really know how to play the game! The suiciders know what they are doing. For some things you have to suicide 7 times in a row!
Aye, but considering it was his first playthrough I'll give him some leeway. Honestly, I didn't quite grasp the concept of world tendencies till my NG+. and why you definitely want to goto pure black xD Thinking of picking up some more Colorless Demons Souls on my NG+7 o_O
That was actually really funny...
This game destroys my life.
I bet it destroyed alot of peepz lives. Remember the angry reviews and pre-reviews that were released complaining: I won't review the game coz i can't finish it. or this game sucks bcoz i couldn't finish it xD Gah.. good times
There are games that hurt, and then there are Demon's Souls. God.
lol nice one. Bubs up
and people were complaining about NG :) love the game
Few tips,some cheap and some not so. #1-cheap but effective;You can kill the first maneater before you enter the fog.Right hand side use a bow in precision aim mode.Likely takes about 50+ arrows or less(depending on the bow). #2-effective; Firestorm.If you have it,it helps alot. #3;ALWAYS use the burning column as cover and lure them into over-committing (lunges,punches,etc).This allows you to PLAN youre attack and strike when opportunity presents.A spear or rapier used correctly can actually 'hit' through the firepit.Just watch for maneaters lunge as it can also hit through the fire. Maneater is considered one of the hardest bosses by most,and I agree.Patience or using the cheap method is a must.
I'll have to try to cheap thing. I've been trying to do this as a melee character and it's been beating the hell out of me.
I never faced the Maneaters any other way. I'm really good at this game, but I don't see how these two can be beat! Maybe I'll try it someday!
Two words....fire-storm. and if you don't want to level up your magic and mana in order to get firestorm or whatever...just wait at the fog and co-op it. You'll run into somebody who has firestorm sooner or later.
my first three runs of the game I used a sword and shield to beat them to death. (NG to NG++) Then I just used firestorm till my NG+5.. but that got boring.. so NOW i use the Hand of God.. it looks really cool when you falcon punch em to death ;) Ofc the trick is to go all out on the first one.. have Second Life on. And when the second one arriges, get to that middle circular platform.
Demon's Souls might be my favorite game of this generation, so when I saw the title of this article I had to check it out. I thought it was quite a let down. Maybe I just died in more interesting ways. Damn me.
Well you know what? You can just get your own column and write your own article about the ways Demon's Souls has brutalized you! :P Just kidding, can't win em' all I suppose.
One of my faves all-time.It's hard but not as hard as some make it out to be.Everything has a weakness or certain procedure required for success.Difficult yet balanced and enjoyable.....once that balance is found. 5-2 still kills me though,just as I get over-confident lol Craziest thing I have witnessed in DS.....I seen a CRAZY magic based build reduce Flamelurker to 1/4 life in TWO HITS!!.He ran and hid and then we finished him lol,it was cool.The guy had built his entire character around a few lethal strikes with magic then let the butchers finish it.
tht is extremely easy to do: Morion's blade + Cat's clever's ring + friend's ring+Monks hat + Kris Knife +5 + Insanity Catalyst get ur hp around 30%, and watch the boss go BOOM And most bossed (none-fire element) just die one hit with firestorm >.<
