No new Archstone unfortunately, he says he didn't feel it was their right to do a new world however fractured mode is basically a hardcore mirror mode apparently that you can select, even something you'll want to face while going into New Game +

Oh god i still don't know if i should get that game on launch or not. I never played Demon's Souls, never finished darksouls 2 and 3, but i was absolutely addicted to bloodborne which i even did 100% trophies for the main game and the old hunters addon and like 9 ng+ runs back to back

Now i i'm undecided to buy this. On one side i feel like i don't want a launch game i have to put in actual work to complete or that even might be too hard so i will never beat it, on the other side i miss that feel of accomplishment when beating bosses after i failed many times.

There will be no load times after you die. That will be a massive boon to people that are struggling in the game. But it's up to you. If you're not sure, then just wait a bit. The game will always be available.

Yeah maybe i will wait a bit and go with spiderman ultimate at first, since i didn't play the first one on ps4.

I loved demon souls and bloodborne. Dark souls 1 is similar but the environment enemy boss fights are more original dark souls was like a b movie copie a good one but not on the same level

Its hard to tell which soulsborne People will enjoy the most.

I think dark souls 1 is the game that is closest to demon's souls but I also think dark souls was a step up.

Some people really love the original, but generally speaking it seems most People enjoy dark souls more. I honestly would probably consider finishing what you have before picking this up. At the very least Dark Souls 3, which i personally think is the best in the series and on par with bloodborne.

Just for reference my ranking of the soulsborne games (I have not played Sekiro)
1. Bloodborne/Dark Souls 3
2. Dark Souls 1
3. Demon's Souls
4. Dark Souls 2

Now that is Just my opinion and I am not really a die hard fan of the series. I enjoy the games, but they feel like work to me as well. I think Demons souls is the worst plat of them all. Hopefully the improved drop rates can help mitigate this, but world tendency also brings with it a lot of issues. Honestly I was hoping they would change that aspect, but I also understand why they wanted to stay true to the original.

I also played demon's Souls first. There are just many aspects of what made the genre/series great that I think was missing from Demon's Souls. Already at release it had aspects that felt dated. Most important to me is how Dark Souls 1 did a lot more with level design and interconnectivity.

I also love bloodborne the most, but a lot of that has to do with theme and style. Oh and the combat. However bloodborne has arguably the weakest boss design of all the soulsborne. They are all great until they get repetitive.

Anyways I hope this remake lives up to everyones hype level. I Will probably play it too, but I would have preffered to see bloodborne 2 over this.
