Namco Bandai Games Europe has today launched the critically acclaimed Dark Souls throughout PAL territories. The sequel to the PlayStation 3 exclusive Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls is available now on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
This is not a sequel. Where did the professional journalism go?
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.
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.
well, its (fucking) hard. Far more than Demons Souls...
I like the sound of that :)
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.
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!!
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..
who disagrees havent played demons souls probably... :)
this game is brutal and i love it lol
....I miss the nexus....
Demon's Souls is one of the best games ever. Nothing will touch its greatness; not even sequels or "spiritual successors".
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!
