Can you take down the Tower Knight in From Software’s 2009 release Demon’s Souls with no problem?

At this point, I think I could do that without a shield, but at first that boss was insanely intimidating.

I think during my first playthough I went back and fought him way later in the game.

This is a cool idea though and I usually wield a shield so I definitely think they are important to have in your inventory. Some people like to run around with dual uchitangas or kilij, etc. but I haven't really got into that yet.

From the looks of things, it seems like I'll be picking this game up day one.

yea a shield really doesn't do a whole lot when fighting the tower knight. your shield has no chance against his hulk smash lol

A shield is basically useless against Tower Knight. Actually a shield is pretty useless for most of the bosses. Dual wielding and two handed weapons or magic and arrows work better than a sword and shield.

Oh, I thought this was a new feature in game to create a custom Shield for any player.

I could imagine the many vulgar things we would see as invading Black Phantoms turtled behind their trusty shields if that was in the game.
