As Halloween is fast approaching, Atlus is warning all heroes of Boletaria to take extreme caution while venturing in the world of Demon's Souls.
hahaha, dude this is awesome! Time to go farm them souls!
As if this game wasn't challenging enough.. ah hell, I'm gonna' go get me some souls!
Does this mean all PBWT events will be availlible? ...and I won't be able to shift towards white? COOL!! This game took me by surprise. I was hyped for Uncharted and R&C, but all I've been playing is DS. It's quite addicting. Reminds me of a new age 3D Megaman Zero game, set in Midevil times.
EPIC!! Time to take that Demonbrand out for a test drive.
Demon Slayers, lend me your ears. Temple Knights sharpen your Dragon Swords, Barbarians upgrade your strength, Priests readily your miracle staffs and Hunters steady your bows for the farming season is upon us! Go forth battle worn warriors, let the harvest.. BEGIN! ARGH!!!!!!!!!
And coming from that I laughed when I read that he cackled as he put on his thief's ring and then disappeared. Demon's Souls is an amazing game and the guys at Atlus are definitely touting it around. I wish there was advertising for it, commercials and stuff. Right now it is getting the best form of advertisement though: word of mouth. Everyone who is even remotely into action games or RPGs is being told how amazing and challenging this game is. I guess since it was kind of a hit or miss in most peoples' minds as to whether it would sell well or not they decided to not publish it. Hopefully if there's a sequel in some form they'll really pimp it out and improve on it by leaps and bounds.
This is completely awesome!
Now, THIS is why this game is so insane. Hard game? Let's make it harder for the holidays! And the people flock to it! DS is gaining such a loyal following, that it gives me hope for a sequel and even greater hope for some DLC to keep the game fresh and the servers up. As Chubear screamed... Let the dark harvest BEGIN!!!!! EDIT: This game needs to be an MMO, for real. Keep the same controls but maybe... maybe... add some voice communication. You already quest and grind in this game. Imagine getting jumped by a Black Phantom group of 5? or 10? But they jumped the wrong Priest who can "Mass Summon" an army of Blue Phantom guildies for back-up? Insane!!! Just do it already!!!
WooT! I finished my first playthrough and now this. ahahaha, this is turning out to be a great weekend. Time to take the Dozer Axe for a spin.
For Demon Souls II it would be brilliant if they ofcourse fleshed out all they've done for DS online but also add another option in online to take have up to 5 Slayers venture further outside Boleteria to neighboring Cites to take on Demons that have gotten to these place via the fog. Instead of some 2D lobby we could have something similar to the Nexus where we can wait for other players to join but in our Xter form being able to move about like we do in the Nexus. Once people fill in, the group walks over to a stone and enters the world. Various Cities or areas could have their own smaller Nexus. Gosh, the possibilities for a Sequel are so sweet.
I'm getting my Bind ^^
Bring on the new challenge! even if I'll most likely end up dead. On a side note, how the hell did some people managed to get 9999999 souls? The game has only been out for a couple of weeks!
This sucks I wont be able to play, my replacement ps3 wont be sent to me till next week. But it'll be worth the wait since my warranty company is going to replace my 40 gig with one of 250 gig ps3s that come out next week. I'm actually happy it broke now.
I'm going to put on my Yurt mask and haunt the night! Maybe the whole armour. Black Phantoms beware! @Above: Rent a PS3 for the night!
i cannot wait for this! im gonna have to hurry up and finish my 2nd playthrough so i can farm all the worlds and gain everything i can in pure black tendancy. i havent gotten the talisman of beasts so now is the best time to get it in world 2-2. p.s. Id kill for some DLC, id die for a sequel. im not a gamer who can grind out long hours by any means, but since launch ive got 62 hours on this game(level 102) and i cannot get enough, i think im going for the platinum and this holiday special will be perfect for helping me get all the weapons faster. anyone want to coop the game together send me a request, i also got uncharted 2. (venomcarnage89 psn name) i got killed by the maneater a few times on my 2nd playthrough, maybe someone can help me out if you dont mind
Man, I beat the 1st playthrough and was taking a break from this game for a while...bastards! I need to sleep! This game is crack... "Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in!"
Nice, i'll just have to pop this in on Halloween. Sorry kids no candy for you :(. I'll be playing Demons Souls :)
Okay I'm going to get on this halloween even though I was going to rent WET and get some pizza, now it seems I will be just getting the pizza and handing out candy while trying to play Demon's Souls.
I will be playing for sure.
yeah i'm confused if this means tomorrow or halloween. but im def. gonna be playin. cheap colorless demon's souls :D
The word "Halloween" comes from a sloppy version of "Hallow's Eve"
*goes to play demons souls * time to collect B!TCHE'S
This is so awesome, and makes so much sense.
Ha, awesome....now I can be black tendency without actually being a d!ck!
I like invading as a BP. Using the level to my advantage, sneakin around, hidin behind a corner, or doubling back to get behind 'em for a critical. Gotta be sneaky when there is 2 blues with the livin one, ya know? Plus I love takin the blue's souls. Took so many off one guy I could lvl up twice!! Bet he was pissed. xD
THAT WAS YOU? lol just messing I regret not getting this game already ... getting it next weekend looks brutal, addicting, and fun all in one
Revive your body from soul form with that stone and kill yourself over and over again for about 3,4-5times in a row. That should do the trick.. but why do you want to do that? Atlus has made the world tendency pure deep black already. I have a Hunter Xter, Queen Mani, that I'm using offline but I'll certainly use my new Priest Xter, Belgarath, for this all out Demon Soul harvest period. Awww snap, this is going to be brutal lol
I never play in Body form, I only play in soul form; So I've never come across a black phantom. I don't want to lose my PW tendency. Upper level Nexus suicide FTW!!!
I guess that solves the the problem I was having deciding between playing Ratchet or some more Demon's Souls tonight. I know a certain Grim Reaper who is not going to be happy for the next couple of days.
This statement right here is hilarious if you have the game :) Good ol' 4-2...
I def. laughed. We all know what bastard he is sniping. I for one, will be taking out some storm rays. Those bad boys drop a decent amount of souls and there are so many of them. Is this not the best farming?
Avirice ring Storm Ray farming FTW!! 106 cloud shards!
God I love this game. I might just go buy US version.
if playing the asian version will get me into the halloween Challenge or did i miss out by getting the game months before you guys did :P
Thats it... I was hoping that sony would be smart and publish this game in europe but obviously they dont have faith that an AAA game will do well in the UK or any of Europe. COD6 will just have to wait Im importing the game. Its a JOKE that its not being published here, a J_O_K_E.
Yeah I was really hoping to have this for christmas
i had it pre-ordered with playasia.com the week before it was released in the US, me and my brother have put in around 120hrs since and it's freaking awesome.
What a game this is!!!!!
PS3 is INCREDIBLE!!!!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhh!
PS3 exclusives are the motherloving BOMB!
this is so wrong timing for me. my ps3 broke like 2 weeks ago!!! :(((((((((((((
Although I already am pretty darn scared every time I enter Boletaria! Great game.
I have to play this game again. I put it down once I got UC2 and didn't even make it to the 2nd world.
um.. ok disagree that I haven't made it to the second world yet. I'm still in the Boletarian Palace, but I guess you guys know better than I do. I defeated the Phalanx.
They're probably disagreeing because most of us that have both games are hardly playing Un2 because we have to get our fix of Demon's Crack.
you should keep playing. after phalanx the real fun starts. i havent even finished UC2 becouse of demons souls. im at it and i love it but demons souls is just so addictive.
Unfortunately it's sold out over here.
That is too bad :( I had just sold my extra Deluxe Edition on ebay yesterday it was only up for 24 hours! I hope you can get your hands on one... this game shouldn't be missed!
Every Game Stop within a 4 hour drive from me was sold out and I thought I'd look for it online, but I checked a Kmart on the way home and they had like 15 copies on the shelf. If all else fails, look online. Trust me... YOU WANT THIS GAME!! Well if you want to keep your job and social life I'd recommend staying avay from this one. Once you get a taste of a demon's soul you will hunger for more and your only goal will be harvesting souls.
Well, to be honest, I'm hoping my local Best Buy gets more in stock by this Saturday so I can take advantage of the buy 2, get 1 offer. If they don't I'll have to go on Ebay for one. Can you guys tell me how long it takes to beat the game, not leveling a character to the max, but just beating the game.
I would say without much grinding and excellent strategy 15-20hours. However it took me 60+hours because i love grinding and crafting new items :D
It kinda reminds me of Megaman in that aspect. If you know what you're doin it wont take too long, but your first time though may take 50 - 60 hours. depending on how much you die (which will be a lot) and if you need to level up to counter your lack of skill.
Darktower The bestbuy buy 2 get 1 free sale works online also. They have stock online and the shipping is free so hurry up and get on it soldier!!!
20hrs+ AT LEAST is great to hear. Some games are cool to pass in a couple days, but the slower, grind out pace of this game is really appealing to me and makes the purchase price that more justified. When I'm not playing Uncharted 2 online, I'll be grinding away at this game. Thanks guys.
Nah, dude. On average, you're going to soak up roughly 40hrs on your first go. Be aware though, this game is for true gamers. If you're the type that will complain about KZ2 controls and loves the heck out of CoD4, don't walk away from this game - RUN! This game will pwn you... a lot. If you do end up getting it hopefully this little advise will save you frustration. When you start the game it may seem fairly easy defeating enemies and you fall into this comfort zone. Don't do that. Keep on your toes and keep killing as much as you can cause when you die the 1st time you'll likely die a good 30times in a row before you get comfortable with strategically killing demons. During these times of constant dying and frequent erges to bite the S* out of your controller, just remember it's part of the initiation of the game's universe and you WILL be reaping these motherf*ers souls eventually. Just take time outs and keep coming back. The pay-off is SUWEET!
This is awesome, on my second run-through. I anticipate the challenge :D
I went to 4-1 to test the waters and... I should have done some more grinding/lvling in the first playthrough. I'm doin a bit better now, but damn! That first shock of "DEEEEEAAAUUUUMMMMM this is messed up difficult I'm a just start a new game" had me a lil worried. This time I brought the Red Hot to the Blacksmith and got a decent weapon so now I'm doin ok.
yea i went it to 2-1 to mess around a bit, and it its alot more difficult. Thankfully i have a sweet sword and bow :)(Long Sword of Searching and Lava Bow ATM... Need more colorless souls!!!)
I'm not a huge RPG fan, but what you said really makes me excited for when I pick this game up. The fact that you're no match for a certain level, so it makes you level up then come back when you're ready and say, "what's up now bi***!" Haha, I love that!
I don't like RPGs either, but Demon's Souls is different. To be honest, I wouldn't even call it an RPG. It's more of an action game with heavy RPG elements. Like I say in one of my comments abvove, It's like a 3D Megaman Zero game set in the dark ages with RPG elements (leveling up certain aspects of your character, collecting ore/demon souls to forge new weapons/spells/miracles)
wasnt expecting this type of support for demon's souls.. very cool, i was going to sit down with forza 3 but looks like my weekend will go to demon's souls instead..
f'ing cool. gonna scoop up tons of soul, brothas.
Does this mean I can fight executioner Miralda?
all the black phantoms should be out i would think-- be prepared though-- I have heard they are tougher than the bosses! (can anyone confirm / deny?)
These bad mamma jammas don't mess around. I was taking on Scirvir the Wanderer. And he whooped my glutes like I stole somethin'. I was at lvl 119 btw (Game++). And he smoked me. One point I tried to retreat and regroup myself, homeboy blasted me with his friggin fire attack LOL
Demon's Souls is greatness. Atlus, you guys actually know how to have fun with your customers instead of trying to rip them. cough activision cough
Glad I already beat the Flamelurker. I can't imagine that guy being even harder. ;)
he'll make any "hardcore" gamer cry.
Maneater Flamelurker False King DROVE ME INSANE. Then I summoned some help...Im telling you...few bosses can withstand 2 blue phantoms 1 body form all around soul level 110. Especially, if you are lucky to get a mix of melee and magic. Bosses dont stand a chance.
Oh man, pk killing here i come,level 178, add me and lets rule the world together!!!!hahahaha
