The servers supporting Demon's Souls celebrated and unique multiplayer components are being shut down. GameJudgment's Anthony Velez shares why this change is sad for gamers everywhere.
Yes, beautiful game. When this was released, I was completely entranced by the atmosphere and immersion of the game. I didn't have such a feeling for a loooong long time. Too bad they don't patch the game so that they allow players to host their own online games or something. This game loses interest when played offline, such a shame :(
Maybe someone should start a petition to get the developers attention and get something like that patched in. At least It worked with Mass Effect 3.
that's not gonna happen. what might happen, though, is a re-release in the next generation for 20 bucks with new online support. probably the best we can hope for. of course, you'll be buying it twice at that point.
I want them to patch a pause feature since the game won't be persistent online anymore. Sometimes I gotta take a dump and I'm fearful something will kill me while I'm away.
guitarded, why don't you just play in the bathroom ? :p
Demon Souls sounds way too hard
My platinum says otherwise
it at least says that you are a bit fanatical about this game :)
The Abscence of you having any semblance of a life, agrees with your platinum score
It was wonderfully tough but incredibly fare. A very very awesome game. I have to pop it in this weekend!
It is, but when you finally beat a boss, the thrill you get is worth waay more anything else. A well deserved break...till someone smashes you in the face with a giant axe.
You make an excellent point. Success after challenges is more rewarding than success after easy-street.
You just have to get the right mentality and understand that the game was designed for the highest in gaming skills. It's not made for the masses, it's made for the dedicated.
I think that was well said. Bubbles to you for thinking out a good response.
False. I didn't think it was even that hard, just pretty darn challenging.
huh, wats the difference
Ha ha...I dunno. I meant to say I never felt like it was unfair.
P2P doesn't sound so bad when things like this happen.
I'm definitely gonna miss the online aspect of the game. It wasn't an easy platinum to get but it sure was satisfying when it popped up.
I am sad to see the game go. I still play it, and I wish Atlus wouldn't have done that(Yeah yeah, I get it, costs..and other things) I love the game :(
I'm going to feel very lonely playing it now.
You aren't the only one.
I picked this game up on a whim, and it ended up being my favorite game of this generation. I'll never forget my first run through.
I have Dark Souls still in the wrapping... Whenever I had the urge to play Dark Souls I always just popped in Demon Souls because it was still fun/fresh to me. The only thing that dwindled down was the players online. Could never get anyone to join but there would still be jackasses invading me. Made some good PSN friends over invasions.
Just repicked this up today. Going for the. Platinum.
A petition for independent hosting has been started.
And where is that, please ?
