Demon's Souls is coming to the UK! See what you've been missing out on in this exclusive new trailer.
Gametrailers 9.2/10 WTF? They gave it 8.9/10 Anyways, the one Atlus made is FAR superior than this one sorry.
Yeah, GT gave it a 8.9.
can you at least elaborate why atlus demon's souls is "FAR superior" than the the euro version? I fail to find announcements on the interweb that the euro demon's souls is inferior to the NA one
What's the difference between the Euro version and the Atlus version? Why do we europeans get an 'inferiour' product? Not sure if this game is for me. I still have Oblivion and FallOut 3 to play. Will probably wait till this game hits the bargainbins before I'll pick it up, which shouldn't take too long, seeing as hardly anyone knows about this game.
Its the same game. I suppose hes talking about the trailer. Regardless this game should be a day 1 buy for anyone who enjoys great gaming.
I wouldn't wait too long, with hardly anyone knowing about it, they may be limited run and, like Valkyria Chronicles, stop being printed and become more expensive.
Dunno why you'd say one version is better than the other. Is there any evidence of this or is it just your opinion? Anyways I think i'll buy this day 1.. I have been looking at how high it scored and i'm shocked and excited at the same time that its FINALY coming to europe. I personaly cannot wait !! :)
Yeah guys, you misunderstood what Clown Belt meant. The trailer Atlus made was better. Mixing CGI+Actual gameplay = fail. -_- Man, I swear I'm addicted to Demon's Souls, whenever I see something regarding it I'm like, "OMG MUST PLEH NAOWZ". Oh and btw, NA box art is better. -_-
I'm talking about the trailer duh... People are so stupid in this site. sigh
GOTY by Gamespot. Along with Uncharted 2.
I don't know if they will be, but it'll be really cool to have new friends to help / hunt
I'm from EU and already have CHINESSE and NA version. I'm buying EU release only if it runs on EU servers where only EU can connect. Not to be racist or anything. 99% of the game is multiplayer for me. Asian servers already slightly lag in 20-30% and really lag in 5%. which is way too much. So I tried NA release and lag up there is even more immense (australians and their lag make their toll). Double backstabs (not once on asian servers), front backstabs are also too common thing there (happens maybe 1/20 games on asian). Getting hit trough DSS shield like you didn't put it up happens in 30-40%. I have a lot of NA friends, but game that lags is worster than no game at all. I shelved my NA version after 1 week since it is more or less unplayable against asian. Sorry, but the only way EU release can be good is to have dedicated EU servers. If that is so then I'll own 3 releases and I'm more than prepared to do that if it means more chance for DS2.
yeah I don't remember Game Trailers giving this a 9.2/10, it was 8.9 like you said ... that's some questionable advertising there lol. Still looks like a great game anyway
got this like a year ago. They wasyed too much time in briging it to europe. Atleast its still a unique game
I had to import Demon's Souls from the US because there STILL no release date set for Australia.
I can't wait to get my hands on the 'Black Edition'. It's been a long, long wait. But im sure it was worth it.
Sorry it took so long. I was busy pwnin n00bs.
Good dragon, have some bubbles.
LOL, nice one!
right now this is the best rpg for ps3
Whitout a doubt! I love this game so much, man! I live in Europe and I bought my US version the first day it landed in a store that import asian and american versions of the games! I'm still playing it and I must tell you: it's a so amazing experience! Now I'm really happy this finnaly come to Europe, now everyone can experince this magnific game, whitout any doubt best RPG I ever played!
Best western RPG this generation.
that's mass effect 2 my friend
Uh no it's not. That's a Shooter with some RPG elements.
ME2 is a kick-ass game, but not a true RPG. Demon's Souls is hands down the best RPG I have played in a loooooooong time.
Except that it was made in Japan by a Japanese development team. It is the best Eastern RPG this Generation.
"Best western RPG this generation." Yeah, like it was made by a western developer. Nice try, buddy.
this game is beyond good...I just couldnt play it...out of my league in terms of diff and frustration...I had to watch a bud play it and I so much wish it had an I suck mode, I would have bought it day one....online was so refreshing...one of the top 5 games of the year...it snuck up on everyone
I doubt it... it just requires you to think about your play. Every setup you make changes your tactic that should be pursued. Most players that gave up on this game were choosing templar knight, knight or thief. They are not hard to use, but for first timer... hard as hell as they are overequipped and have no magic spells, while thief has no power. Anyone that finds 1-1 too hard should simply go back to restart with mage or royal. You get long range spells at the start. The only harder thing for royal is that you start with rapier which can soon be replaced with scimitar.
I know it's like too late, but you need to Play this Game, it's Freaking Awesome....
Oh mate! After being ripped off(twice!) trying to import this game I'm actually jubilant someone on high deemed us UK gamers worth of our own release(even if having to buy a version that includes a fan made strategy guide does feel like they're patronising us, even now, because so many of our countrymen and women bought Just Dance!)-preordered this last week from Shopto. Finally, we get to see what the fuss was about after every obstacle you can think of struck my efforts to buy it down! Demon's Souls-so hard even buying the bloody game is a test of will! I STILL haven't got the money back from the second bloke ripping me of-I think Paypal must assume I'm lying to them with it being the same bloody game an the second time I want my cash back!
i'm getting it as soon as it's released in June ... cant wait
Im jealous of the UK version. Awesome game its good that this game is getting recognize. I hope there is more info on DS2 at e3.
There is confirmed DS2?
i feel sorry for you UKers, man its a great game but been out so long now (im sure most of you have imported this game anyways).....i just recently picked it back up, if you get it release day youll be seeing me invade you and kick your ass :P feel free to go to atlus.com and sign up for the forums.....some sweet tips/tricks/secrets we share on there you wont find anywhere else.
lol i got fed up of waiting and imported it just after christmas, i am wondering whether t buy the pal versio and sell my us version anyone interested??
I'd keep the US version if you've got far, because the saves won't be compatible.
I'll give it a rent.
Finally bought a PS3 eh
Had one since day 1 dude..
Be prepared to pay the "re-rent" fees for about 6 months. You will not be able to bring it back in a week.
renting this game is a waste of money. If you do rent it, make sure you don't die even once on 1-1 (..good luck with that) and then do the same on all the other levels (yeah, good luck with that as well), if not.. you'd better have some kind of 3month rental plan.
Lovefilm :) = Pay on a monthly basis like a subscription, get sent out any 2 games/dvd/blu-ray at a time and no late fees, I could keep them as long as I want no extra cost.
Demons Souls is the purest representation of gaming torment followed by acceptance,.. then patient, perseverance and lastly... extreme satisfaction. I love this game. ------------ Second part: Questions: Has anyone heard whether the UK and NA servers will tie?... that is, Will I be able to help my fellow UK games through their ride of life and death....(mostly death)?
I'm on NG++++. Man, it just gets harder and harder.
DON'T BUY THIS GAME! Publishers always wanna take a p*ss at us! BlazBlue was released in US and Japan 2009, now April 2010 they released the game in UK. Online is retardedly laggy and no one plays the game except for Japanese players and gamers who have mastered the characters. Everyone uses Noel the cheap character. So this is what they are doing to Demon's Soul, released in US early 2010 and 2009 in Japan. These suckers wanna make some extra money and wants to release it in UK. Whereas online will be laggy as fark and no one to play with!
There are seperated servers for US and japan, and probably for europe too, so you cant play against those "Japanese players and gamers who have mastered the characters" unless you have the japanese version. This game is easy in my top 5 this gen. Everybody should play it.
What? So you're saying don't play the greatest RPG this generation just to "punish" a publisher for bringing this jewel over to Europe? I had the Asian version before and dude, I'm so buying the Black Phantom Edition. Mainly for single player. This game is badass and deserves every cent.
Whats your in game xion? 1: The goal of every game developer and publisher is to sale titles. 2: The original released did not have worldwide publishing rights... which by the way is the very reason why it took so long to be released in the UK (and Subsequently why its being published by NAMCO BANDAI) No one, not Sony nor Atlus or the US knew that this game was going to have the success that it did. 3: With respect to your proclamation of an inevitable lag... trollish.. With respect to multiplayer: Demons Souls has a holistically different approach ... of which I will simply state.. google it.
this is one [email protected] of a game i loved every minute of it from boss fights down to the multiplayer. and to the dude that said the one atlus did was better nothing in the trailer was different than the one they made. If you see something different please point it out cause i would really like to know
i would like to have that just because its "Black Phantom Edition" thats bad ass! way better than ours....but i would rather have it a year earlier and not have BP edition :P
its about time they got this game what the hell took so long. One of my favorites to date.
Maybe Sony announces the EU version may come with the Land of the Giants DLC that JPN & NA have to pay for.. maybe :) I'm just jonesing for more Demon Souls. I can't imagine how insane Demon Souls2 is going to be. If they announce DS2 at E3 or TGS this year I'm pre-odering that sucker immediately ... I've become a glutton for asswhoopings :(
..Glutton for asswoopings that is :) (By the way,.. I wouldn't have it any other way)
Thanks to all you Americans who bought and supported this game. If it wasn't for you, we here in Europe wouldn't be getting this game. Should have been released here anyhow. Better late than never though.
bigger and longer level, 20 archstones ,10 bosses in 1 level ,improve weapon upgrade you can now tweak added param, you can now upgrade and craft armours, you get a legendary weapon and armour if you finish the game without dying. everything else is the same as first game.
I'm on my second play through. All I can say is this. The mechanics, the build, the strategy, the tactic's of this game is genius. If you do not play this game then you are losing out. This is a game that will challenge you in a good way & make you ask yourself am I ready for this. Enjoy
There two scores for every game on Gametrailers.com One is the GT Score, which is 8.9- the site's official score from their video reviews. The other is user scores, which is 9.2 and determined by GT's community votes. Apparently the trailer used the user score and not the official. lol
Even if it took so long, its worth the wait. One of the best RPGs this generation hands down.
