Namco Bandai: "Due to several contacts we've received from users confused as to how the summoning feature works in game, we have provided this list to help."
No one cried when this game was only on ps3... just sayin
This game never was only on ps3... It came out for both the ps3 and 360.
I think he meant when when Demon's Souls was out for PS3.
Then thats what he should have said.
the change the name.. i think we all understood that already
WOW Your argument is so stupid do you even know what this is about? It's to do with Dark Souls not having dedicated servers, way to turn this into a console thing though. Edit: So what does that have to do with it being on xbox?
Actually you're the one who doesn't understand it. The game is working the way it's supposed to, newcomers just don't get it yet.
yes they did, but only to themselves LoL ; )
Demons Souls online was a million times better. Hosted server>>>>>p2p.
I would have to say Namco Bandai sucks as a publisher. Atlus did a much better job as the NA publisher and they didn't screw us out of an actual physical mini guide like Namco just did with Dark Souls, plus the servers were better with Atlus. Still love this game but picking the right publisher for your game makes all the difference and this time From Software didn't make the right choice.
Namco Bandai Published demon's souls in the EU and it was mostly identical to the other ones.
^^ truth ^^
Good thing I skipped it for now, will pick it up later. I was gonna pick it up on X360 but after I heard about the party system isn't working, I changed my mind.
It is disabled on purpose so you can experience the game that way, with having someone enter your game randomly. You get the sense of companionship but also the sense of being on the quest alone. So They had it disabled on purpose, it is not broken. If you need to constantly be talking to someone because you are scare to do things alone then this is not a game for you. I swear people can't even go use the restroom alone anymore without being on a phone or talking to someone else. Come on people somethings in this world are just meant to be done completely alone.
ehh? but playing with friends is still fun. and i want to PvP with my friends as well. just like in Demons souls.
The party system works fine, it's just very unconventional and people don't understand it. Demon's/Dark Souls aren't the kind of games where they want you to team up with your buddies. Check that shit at the door, save it for COD. *edit* Seriously, if your buying this game hinged on teaming up with buddies, this game was never for you to begin with.
some people just dont get the point....
What's with all the disagrees ?! I've played Demon's Souls on PS3 I know what this game is. But after you beat the game it gets boring going through that alone that's what I had in mind when deciding on the X360 version.
Namco Bandai should just buy From Software, they sound very interested in armored core and dark souls.
Holy crap I hope you're not serious. Namco is a joke, and From Software is making more money than ever before. They are not exactly in the position to be bought out. Especially by Namco.
Atlus should purchase From Software since Atlus are very well qualitied than Namco Bandai in terms of a unique Rpg.
I think Namco have published Dark Souls so they could release it world wide. Atlus wouldn't be able to publish the game in Europe and after Demon's Souls went through a few different ones (Namco did the Demon's Souls release in Europe) they handled Dark Souls. The online works fine, but because there are so many different servers and you go in a random one each time you log in, I can see how it can be frustrating if you wanna play with friends. Personally its fine for me since non of my friends play this game.
From Software can you please fix the horrendous frame rate It's ridiculous how bad it can get. It seems they pushed this game out when it wasn't ready
Yeah there are some frame rate problems at times. It was the same with Demon's Souls.
Frame rate wise, Demon Souls was way better, for me atleast. also: Even though technically Dark Souls has AAx and other graphical boosts it seems, to me atleast, that Demon Souls looked and ran better than Dark Souls. I have Dark Souls on the PS3 by the way
I have collectors edition, and my code still wont work i even emailed namco, i think namco bandai had an unsuccessful launch of dark souls. I think it should of been well prepared, and not "Prepare to fail".
The Summoning is broken, I tried for about an hour to no avail just a summoning failure message, and yea I did everything correctly. I finally gave up and decided to fight the Capra Demon by myself. Not only did I whip his ass, it was Street Fighter perfect style. Between this and Gears 3, who needs MW3 or Battlefield.
