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?


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.

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!

JoySticksFTW3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

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!!!!!


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!!!

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.

Chubear3279d ago

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 ^^

specialguest3279d ago

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!

NegativeCreepWA3279d ago

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.

DaTruth3279d ago (Edited 3279d ago )

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!

venomcarnage893279d ago

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

Yeti423279d ago

The word "Halloween" comes from a sloppy version of "Hallow's Eve"
