oh cliffy why dont you make an exclusive for the ps3 also and to see wheather if your games can match the ps3 exclusives all together. peace out ?

He´s right though, Demon´s Souls multiplayer was very engaging
MysticStrummer  +   1584d ago
Still my Game of the Generation thus far. One of those rare games that actually makes you feel like you did something substantial when you finish it. Bring on Dark Souls, though I can't see how the new save system will do anything but make the game easier.

I bet Cliffy's reading these comments right now lol.

High Cliffy *waves*, I haven't played any of your games except for some UT game I can't remember, but I watched the whole of your GDC talk (all 50 mins) on Gamespot; you're a very good speaker and I fouund your words very inspirational :)

Demon's Souls, along with Uncharted 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4, is the best game this generation

I remember the terror that I felt when I first read "A BLACK PHANTOM HAS INVADED YOUR GAME", I ran to the portal like a little bitch

C'mon man!

None can deny the power of Demon's Souls!

No one!!

I hope that DS does not take a back seat to Dark Souls.

I'm hoping that DS2 is not forgotten about, because I really, REALLY want to see beyond that broken arch stone and also know how that other Twin Fang broke through the fog to warn other kingdoms of Boletaria's plight.

A Demon's Souls prequel would be so cool now that I stop to think of it. Not what happened before the fog; maybe just as that fog started to appear so we can see all of the madness and destruction as it happens.

That may take away from the eerie, lony atmosphere of the game though. And may really change the cool multiplayer dynamic as well -- there'd be more sane people running around to interact with, not just a few npc's and silent summoned souls.

But it would be cool to play as the hero who caged Yurt, for instance.

Or interacting with / killing some of those black phantoms back when they were alive, like the meat cleaver wielding one and those three hero black phantoms behind the crossbow men on the slain dragon.

Maybe even see some of the rituals in World 4.

That kind of stuff...

I dont like games that sell themselves on difficulty so I avoided demons Sould however his analogy of online is SPOT ON.

"The current way we usually play multiplayer games online is like going to a pub and hoping you run into everybody."

Reply to MysticStrummer

Actually it will make the game harder! Demon's Souls allowed you to save anywhere just by pressing start then opening something up then pressing start again or by picking something up, thats way to easy it also allowed for rage quit, now you wont be able to rage quit because you'll just start all over again.
Rumbanana  +   1584d ago
He's right?!?!? He only did this to stay relevant because he knows that it won't be so for much longer. Demon Souls was an engaging game but I know when to spot the idiot that starts to compliment the enemy because he knows he'll get his ass whooped.

If there was a cliffy B game it would have probably hit 1000000 degrees right now.
But don't blame the guy, blame shitty ass websites like vghq.net who balantly copy articles and interviews from other websites, and the split each one into something like 5 sensational out of context headlines, covering up crappy and pointless content.
And then blame yourself for actually falling for this again and clicking on the source link instead of downrating the story quality

dark souls looks like shit
as long as it's not called Demon Souls 2
i won't care about it
and don't forget it's coming out on the 360 too
George Sears  +   1584d ago
Dark Souls looks almost exactly like Demon's Souls if you watched the latest trailer. I have no idea why you are saying Dark Soul sucks without seeing more or giving it more of a chance.
MysticStrummer  +   1584d ago
@BluePumpkin - Dark Souls looks fine. If you want to be upset about it going to 360 that's your business, but don't lie about the reason. Only thing that bugs me about it so far is that save point stuff.
Tony-Red-Grave  +   1584d ago

Guys, I imagine BluePumpkin7 is being sarcastic... or trying to be sarcastic and clearly not succeeding at it.
blahblah  +   1584d ago

lol, butthurt much lately? looks like shit? engine and style is exactly the same, so it can only improve

i for one played ds 1500+ hours and the only bad thing about dark souls from what i know is that save system will seriously cripple multiplayer

on 360? if game will go from PSN to P2P (which it kinda has to if they want people from both consoles to play together), IT IS ABOUT FUCKING TIME! PSN dedicated servers just ment more lag since distance was even bigger. the more players there are, the merrier. i play games to enjoy, not to fulfill my daily ass kissing to my corporate master who made console

and what is with people and pause/save? there is no pause in multiplayer, or should everybody freeze and console saying "xxx gone to pee". beside the fact that it will make duping child easy and every freaking session at level 1 will have maxed out weapons.

you could easily pause/save if you quit game and then continued exactly at the place you did that. there should only be penalty like 5 levels down if you quit during multiplayer.

also i could only wish, please From... phantom duping fix, arena and checking latency before session connects... ohhh yes, most importantly... count successful invasions instead of bp killed. it only brought whole lot of start campers and much less invasions because 7-10 invasions were directly into spawn nest

Jazz4108  +   1584d ago
Demon sould reminded me of a retro game back when games were difficult. I enjoyed it a lot but I will pick the new one up on the 360. This type of game is very fitting for consoles but I don't consider it a rpg by any means. Maybe a dngeon crawler with hack. Slash...and some rpg moments. Its a very own hybrid ....but very good game and yes I enjoy a lot of ps3 games especially gt5. I play both consoles and talk crap about them both if they deserve it.

He praises 360 games all the time . Him praising a multiplat dev is hardly news.
blahblah  +   1584d ago

he didn't praise neither game. he praised multiplayer uniqueness. it is exactly as he said. ds mp is the first of its kind.

in common mp game you need to go to the bar and hope people will be there as they always separate mp. in ds mp is inside sp, so unless you pulled the cord you don't play one or another, you play both. but even more interesting is that coop and invasions can coexist at the same time too.

it is strange that he started saying that only after multiplatform showed up.
Tyre  +   1584d ago
He has always praised PS3 games and the console...i've seen all his interviews and he said this since the launch of the PS3...he's also a big admirer of Hideo Kojima...and has a wide interest in old/modern culture/art/science/music etc...he's really an ok guy...not as blind as most of u here...he also played most games and has quoted that games are the ultimate blend of science & art.

CanadianTurtle  +   1584d ago
He wouldn't do that because it wouldn't sell as much as it would if it was a 360 exclusive. Sales mean everything to a developer.

I know PS3 exclusives are much better overall in my opinion, but you can't deny that they don't sell as much as its competitive consoles, which is a shame

Inside_out  +   1584d ago
Cliffy B a gamer first...
What I like about Cliffy B is that he is a gamer first, creative director second. It shows in everything he does and says.

I prefer the pub version of multi-player as described by Cliff but the more variety/choices out there the better. COD is such a power house because of the pub theory but COD also has added great features like the perk system, kill streaks...etc.

With all the changes devs are making trying to be different, I hope they don't lose sight of the gamers out there that just want to game and not spend an eternity trying to learn the ins and outs of a certain game. Lately it's been if you try and play a game that's been out for say six months or more, you missed the boat and it's near impossible to get into it. The learning curve is getting so long that many people will just quit trying and moving on.

UNFORTUNATELY, it's a double edge sword. COD is swallowing up the multi-player gamers out there because alot of gamers don't want to start over again with a new system. COD4 is still quite active as is Halo 3 and those games are 3-4 years old.

BTW...DUMB PS3 fanboy article title. Cliff is all about the GAME, not if it's on PS3 or not. Nothing he is talking about is PS3 related...O_o...In related news, they said that Cliffs next game is Gears of war 3 and is releasing on September 20...they forgot to mention that it's a 360 exclusive, see what I did there. ;D

lol it's free publicity... Some people agree with him and like him, other's disagree with him and dislike him... and other's don't really care either way.... but all 3 types who read N4G still see it and it sparks the odd convo or 10 about him!

Which makes his personal stock as a dev go up and adds a certain notoriety to his name and whatever he puts that name to!

It's an old trick... but a useful one. Can't blame the bloke for using it really in a competitive market when you want that edge!

He has good tastes. Demons Souls is easily one of the best this generation for alot of reasons.

Dark Souls is my most anticipated game of the year (and yes, Ive seen the Skyrim trailer).

As for the new save system, I would be SHOCKED if somehow this made the game easier. I would venture to say that these save points are probably in a place that would actually frustrate you that they are there. AND, I also doubt they are anywhere near any boss.
