Check out the first scan of Dark Souls (Project Dark/Demon's Souls successor) from Famitsu.
Looking good. "Bring more Dark Souls"
It looks exactly like Demon's souls not that I complain but i guess Namco saw the potential of Demon's souls and wanted to try to make money with going multiplatform with it
It looks a bit more colorful. I get the feeling that the atmosphere will be quite a bit different...probably less oppressive. As long as they don't nerf the difficulty though, I'm happy.
@frostypants I really hope it isn't less oppressive, that made the atmosphere for me! =(
Please... translate as much as you can = massive amounts of bubbles
I agree, as long as they keep the difficulty it's all good!
by Atlus Games. I thought I heard that this was going to be very similar to Demon's Souls. From the trailers and stuff it looks promising. But now it may be a game to tie me over till Dark Souls depending on the release dates. http://www.thecursedcrusade...
demons soul's looks better.
demon's souls looks pretty bad.
You're getting this from a handful of slightly in focus but low rez scan's from a magazine? Must of landed on "Ignorant conclusion" on your Jump to a Conclusion Mat.
@kaveti6616 Next Time Troll harder!
So fu*king stoked for this!
I AM SQUEALING LIKE A LITTLE GIRL! SO EXCITED!!!
Need to hurry up and beat Demons Souls. Where can I get Royal Lotus btw? That poison world is ripping me to pieces and that poison ring is useless. @below: Will do. thx.
increase your magic power.... its your only friend in DS.
DS? Dark soul or Demon soul? lol Btw, who is behind this game dev?
From Software, the same people that made Demons Souls.
lots of royal lotus in "tower of latria". but increasing magic is a big help.
Royal Lotus can be found in the Tower of Latria. Also, in the second level of the Tower world there is an NPC in a cage. He has armor that will really help. Maybe he will give it to you. Probably not. ; )
Ah yes, Yurt. Such a bastard. Yes...free him, and see what happens a bit later...lol...
yea - i let yurt go because i thought that was a good thing - until i come across him in the nexus......i killed him and i really liked his armor.
I knocked that fool off the ledge lol. Nice armor btw.
You can get Royal Lotus from the prisoners in world 3, the jellyfish in world 5, and the dirty woman in world 5. But, if you get a Regenerator's Ring, and get the Adjudicator's Shield to +5, the poison will not reduce your life at all. And it's even better if you're a faith build and have a +5 Blessed weapon because it also restores HP per second. And magic power is not your only friend, you'll get crushed by a faith build if you believe that.
anit-magic field...most stupid spell ever.... ...if you can't tell, I played mainly magic characters :P
Exgamer you should have a Cure spell if you need help and your on the US server i can drop about 30 of those Royal lotus for you.
Cant wait to pull the rest of my hair out, since I still have some left after finishing demons souls LOL. ???? how is that pisture concidered a scan????
You wouldnt happen to have a friend ring ?
Damn, there doesn't seem to be any reference for which console it's coming out. Maybe AndriaSang has some details...
seen some where, ps3 and 360
its going multiplatform. 360 guys will love this game.
If it's anything like demons souls i am guessing, more anger and cussing than love.
@ Madjedi this game might actually red ring a few Slim 360's. I do hope it has voice chat on the PS3 ver.
PS3 only in Japan. Everywhere else it's multiplatform.
i am a dum ass i am a dum ass i did not see at the end.i was to busy going omg omg yes yes im just glad they did it.sorry one more time guys and girls.
Wait...never mind, I checked AndriaSang.com just now and it is indeed coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3. Though only oversas, in Japan, it will be PS3-only. http://www.andriasang.com/e...
OMG, I'm soo exited!!
Might pick this up. Loved Demon's Souls for the expierience, but dropping the server support for the original so fast has left a bad taste in my mouth.
Stop complaining for nothing... They have not dropped the server support for now and if you played it you probably wont play it anymore when they pull the plug...
Since they haven't dropped server support, I have to assume you are either from the future or an alternate universe.
Isn't call of duty, there is no need for indefinite server support. Game is still amazing in offline mode and Atlus isnt a conglomerate publisher that can subsidize server support for the remaining 12 people who play still. Besides, they announced initial support of only 6 months and here we are 15 months later and they are still up. Me thinks your just bitching to bitch.
My reaction... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
looks like demon souls, so that's good. Heck in that picture there is a soul helping out against the giant rat. This looks like it pretty much is demon souls with some improvements (maybe).
I came. GOTY. Just read a page back, the info sounds sooo good. They are keeping the messages, co-op and PvP, but adding more co-op support. Many more spells and items, and the cherry on top, IT'S OPEN-WORLD! Bad assssss.
I know many might disagree, but I also hope they keep the multiplayer anonymity and lack of voice-chat. It helps keep the multiplayer aspects in the backseat to the single-player world. I like the surprise and suspense of not knowing what sort of player will answer my call for help, and the lack of voice helps re-inforce the idea that they are just a spirit and keeps you in the game (as opposed to some badarse knight showing up and proclaiming "Duuuuude, this game is sick, lez go kill teh boss!"...bleh, no thanks).
I agree with the no voice chat thing. You don't really need it in this type of game. There is pretty much only one way to beat a level in Demon's Souls and either your co-op partner(s) know how or they don't. Explaining it to them wont really help, it's something you need to do on your own. That being said, I have a feeling that they are going to make multiplayer sessions "last longer", just because of the openness of the world. It doesn't sound like there will be many definite starting and ending points for most "levels". I'm not a fan of voice chat in general unless it's with people I really know. Time will tell how they change the co-op. I just wish that sessions would last a little longer than a few minutes. In some cases you get awesome players and you want to keep them around instead of it being completely random who you get next...then again, sometimes you get really sucky people.
Love it Demon's Souls is a masterpiece.dark soul will be just as good i hope 360 players will enjoy this as much as i do on my ps3.Demon's Souls is one hell of a game I can't wait for Dark souls it's going to be beyond Epic and it deserves a lot of sales! this looks so good..btw is there a new trailer yet?
Demon Souls was the best game of 09!!! It had gameplay and online features unmatch by other games. There was no game like it at the time. The moment my friend told me the online features for this game like, being a ghost to help other players, and Invade players game!!! I was sold on getting this game. It original wasn't on my radar of games to get, but thanks to my friend I got the game!!!
Count me in!
I find first DS overrated game, yet it was still good and gave me lot of fun. If there be more armors (and better character editor), open world (with far more places to go), system of weapon crafting will be improved and fighting won't be as buggy and more fluid, it's gonna be awesome. Also story would be nice (or at least something more cohesive because most of "plot" in DS was gibberish).
It's one of the few games that got a lot of acclaim regardless of how it looked it ran. Graphics are meh and the framerate is terrible sometimes. There are lots of issues with physics, especially ragdoll bodies getting stuck in your feet. The game defied all conventions of modern day games by bringing it back to the olds chool "you die in 2 hits and lose everything and have to start over" mentality, and it being an RPG with virtually no story. Yet through all that, it still shines and is beloved by many. Call it overrated if you will, but the fact that so many people love it and play the hell out of it even today, it really says a lot for what the game is.
lmao i use to play soccer with the "ragdoll bodies" LOL it was kinda fun kicking them around while you where waiting for some one to grab some thing or catch up ect.that game was gun if so many ways XD
I find Vagrant Story still the best Action RPG. DS compared to VS is just a wimp.
I hope it's as good if not better than Demon's Souls, especially the difficulty. Sucks that the story is cutoff on that scan, would like to know if we're in a new world or what.
It looks mediocre. I'll pass on this & wait for Demon's Souls 2 instead.
"It looks mediocre" Stop sucking on your ps3 will ya freak, You don't have to post twice you know, Wait for DS2 till you DIE CUS THAT ISN'T HAPPENING! GTFO!
they said no demon's souls 2
...forever. Have fun with that. :o
This will be a GREAT GAME, cannot wait. The game plat in Demon Souls was phenomenal. This will be the same. : )
Is it REALLY that hard for people to properly scan a magazine page? I mean, damn, I've never had that problem when scanning stuff. Is it that difficult to just, I don't know, lay the damn page down flat, and scan one page at a time? lol. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to this game, as Demon's Souls was one of my favorite games of 2009. This game isn't tied to the franchise in story or world (Sony owns the Demon's Souls IP), but I'm all up for "spiritual successors," and this title could easily serve as a test run for some of the things they may eventually do in Demon's Souls 2. Nobody expected DS to be as popular as it was. Even From Software was shocked at it's performance. I don't blame them for wanting to expand, and produce a similar game on both platforms. Hopefully the Xbox 360 crowd will hop on board the soul-crushingly difficult game train. lol. Man, I think I'll pop in Demon's Souls now...
I think the bad scanning technique is just to add to the hype LoL Either this or a 5yr old is the official scanner in the office. : )
Impressive. I never played Demon's Souls, but will definitely pick it up before I play this one. Heard it's pretty hard too:)
"Pretty Hard" is a severe understatement, trust me.....
it's hard but I think people over exaggerate it's hardness level now new game + and up is hard.but i can beat a new character in 2 maybe 3 days depending on how much time i have and how much i play.it's harder then most games but not too bad in my experience it's just intimidating in the first play through but it's really fun.
It was not hard if you plan and take your time, especially if youve been gaming for a while, youve played harder games. Its difficult but fair, if u die its your fault.
Well, I'm always up for a challenge, no matter how hard:) Being rewarded for putting time and effort into a game that requires skill and dedication is one of the greatest experiences a game can offer in my opinion.
I believe the reason why the game was so daunting to me because I chose the thief class to start with. I never tried the other classes but maybe Ill try another before Dark Souls release to see if it's easier for me to finish. I know it wont make fighting Black Phantoms less hard though (the player kind).
Yeah, I'm guessing the thief class probably isn't that powerful in combat? But rather fast and light-weight. In games like this, I usually go for a warrior and max out his/her strength and defense skills. There's nothing more stimulating than cleaving someones head in two with a two handed sword or battle axe:P Brute force at it's best:P
Oh look suddenly people care about this game because it's on the 360, even though none of them will even buy it
Were you expecting 360-only owners to get hyped over a PS3 exclusive? Lol. Now that it's multiplatform, it's only natural more people are looking into it. Just look at GTA, Final Fantasy, and Mass Effect. Don't be so bitter. There's no reason more people can't enjoy a great game from a great developer as long as nothing's being compromised.
DON'T NERF THE DIFFICULTY FOR THE 360 NOOBS!! This wasn't meant as an offense to the 360 userbase, it's just that they don't know what this kind of game is like, and I don't want that fact to be a reason to nerf the difficulty. The fact that Demon's Souls owns you when you are a rookie at playing it is what makes this game very special in this gen of Superguides, unending walkthroughs, and the Enslaved platforming defect where you can't possibly die unless you actually try to while climbing. Open world = Badass Same co-op but maybe with some small tweaks = Awesome More spells, weapons, and items = YAY!! All they need now is to add maybe some more classes, and give them actual distinctions or specialties that other classes don't get (I mean, for most builds all you really need to start out with is a Temple Knight, and build your stats accordingly) and different weapon styles. Like maybe a bo staff or something.
