This is not a sequel. Where did the professional journalism go?

TopDudeMan2240d ago

It's a "spiritual successor". It is almost a sequel. If it wasn't for demon's souls being a PS3 exclusive then it would be a sequel.

Kos-Mos2240d ago

Almost, but not quite? Close, but no cigar?
That sounds to me like it`s NOT a sequel. It`s a huge difference.

Bought my copy, opened it up when I got home and its all cracked... No copies left in that store either, so I'm goosed for a few days which sucks.

Heishiro__Mitsurugi2240d ago

well, its (fucking) hard. Far more than Demons Souls...

jessupj2240d ago

I like the sound of that :)

villevalorox2240d ago

yeah, I have to agree, Deamon's souls is my all time favorite game and I felt everything done was perfect. I am becoming frustrated playing Dark Souls. Although, I freaking love it I feel like most of the difficulty comes from either there being too many enemies at one time or the constant bombing of fireballs. Which I think is cheap and nothing like deamon's souls. Also what is with the enemies re spawning? like the skellingtons or the weird wasp looking things under the city? Any way to stop them from doing that? An infinite wave of them things keep killing me.

ArchangelMike2240d ago

Yeah those skelletons have already become the bane of my life.

When you run out of Estus Flask you have to ask yourself... do I relight the bonfire and fight through all of the bastards again, or do I just press on WITHOUT any Estus Flasks.

That there is a game with REAL choice with serious consequences!!

villevalorox2240d ago

True, the skeletons are not too much of a bother for me, it's them stupid flying plague spitting wasps. Rally, there is no way to get rid of them. After you kill them they come right back :'( FML..

mullerhun2240d ago

who disagrees havent played demons souls probably... :)

kza2240d ago

this game is brutal and i love it lol

thereapersson2240d ago

Demon's Souls is one of the best games ever. Nothing will touch its greatness; not even sequels or "spiritual successors".

villevalorox2240d ago

I strongly agree. I feel like they took so much out of Dark Souls that made Deamon's souls great. Especially the nexus and how you use magic. :(

Sounds like you all either need an "easy" mode or a diaper...come on now, having no ability to run to a safe haven, and now not being able to spam magic is awesome.
This...Is...Dark Souls!
