I cannot for the life of me understand the appeal of a game that amounts to being digitally raped. It's just so very odd...

nah. i never played like a noob. well i did the first 50 hours or so... but now im on like hour 500 and i can tell you warding is stupid as hell.... second chance all the way and i dont use shields.. .to much effort for some thing that almost never works out anyways. lol ive lost track of how many times i beat the game.. i just pvp now.

i got close to raging when i fought the man eater boss's the first few times. Next playthrough's i just arrowed the first one lol. I just hope more people play online then in Demon's souls because i could never find people, especially when i need body form so i can get pure black world @BombayNugz Good for you, you realized how to be a noob and just camp with a bow after getting a bunch of arrows by killing that one dude over and over and buying arrows. Or just spamming warding and attacking a bit and then recasting warding. Or you just used a shield and dodged most attacks. Either way, I bet you still died like 50+ times before beating the game.

Just beat Demon's Souls, I'm so excited for this game. The only thing I hope they improve is the sidequests and armor selection.

im hoping that this game ends up being hard as **** cause im tired of playing a game that seems like it was made for 5 year olds. so it needs to be 2 to 3 times harder than demon souls that would be sweet. demons souls was easy after like an hour of playing so hopefully ai doesnt suck as bad this time around

i dont know if ill get this game. i do know that its harder than demon souls. which is why im getting skyrim. in my opinion if you like fallout get skyrim. if u like games like this but easier get skyrim. plus unscripted dragons. but if your a hardcore gamer get this but its up to you do what you feel like doing but if you are a casual gamer beware prepare to die

On my first go on Demon's Souls it took me eleven hours to get up to Tower Knight and beat him. On my second go I got there in under 2 hours. Once I'd adjusted to the difficultly and general flow of the game I didn't find it particularly hard. Those first few hours were pure frustration though. Dark Souls is by far my most anticipated game yet to release this year. I've had to mentally jot down a list of games I'm going buy this year and others I'll buy after a price drop. So far Dark Souls,Resistance 3, God Of War: Origins Collection and Tekken Hybrid have taken priority. Battlefield 3, Twisted Metal and Skyrim sure are tempting but they'll have to wait. Besides, Street Fighter X Tekken is out early next year and I've been anticipating that since it was announced.

I hope Dark Souls lets you play with anyone in the world because I tried playing with one of my friends in Europe but it didn't work because we were in different servers:(

I heard that only 4 people actually finished that demo:lol: I hope they get some kind of code for special armor or something,

There are just too many good games coming out around that time for me to even think of this title. It looks fun, but with my new profound budget I’ll have to add this to the old rental stack.

Since this is on gamespot au i take it they will be releasing it in aus straight away unlike demon souls. but it wont matter either way since there is no region limitations with ps3 games :)

Current update for fans, they are making this game "harder" why bringing few new things and changing some old things - 1) No more unlimited magic. Now we can only cast limited # of spells before dying so all classes will have to play as melee. 2) No more unlimited herbs - Only limited number of flasks can be used before dying. This will make sure you die a lot :). 3) Gravelord - If you play as pyromancer you can send your pet gravelord to random person's world which will make their game harder by spawning more enemies and stuff. The only way to get rid of this thing is by invading the pyromancer's world and killing him :) this is evil. 4) Upto 3 Black phantoms can invade you (that's correct) and they can also hide or camouflage in surrounding (hide in coffin, become a statue etc). :) Above things are confirmed and I think we will see a lot more new stuff. As usual boss fights will be different and tough this time as we all have to use melee. This time there is no easy way out :). very exciting hehe

The people who made demon souls are evil I mean come on why would a level get harder each time you die? That defeats the purpose of passing the level lol thats just plain evil. I liked the game but dying 300 times on the first level just got realy repetitive and frusterating! But at least I made it to the king before i traded my game in for a different one was burnt out on game by the time the king took my levels from me!

This game is going to kill me, multiple times, and eat my soul, just like the last one did! Love it!

Game looks even tougher than DS...either that or the guy playing just makes it seem that way.

when i first played the game it pissed me off but i like when games arent easy. but once i figured out the tactics to beat each boss the game wasn't that hard to me. There going to have to step up even more to challenge me this time now that i know what to except.

I'm so jealous, they should release a demo on the network as well. These red cape knights look challenging.

I really dont want to pick on the person playing the demo but man try to dodge at least once. Just standing there and eating all blows. Game looks very nice and I bet they have added plenty of new features. And I am sure I am gonna play as pyromancer or witch. This knight class seems too slow for my play style :). Fire and magic ftw hehe

uh..... why do no developers know how to play their own game? or do they just suck to show different game mechanics so people can have a better understanding of what you can do? also DID HE FREAKIN JUMP?? hell yea

Oh god. Less than one minute in and the demo dude dies. And I thought the first game was tough.

This was awesome at the show, loved the demo. Got my butt handed to me by that big pig but I did end up killing him!

Oh boy, and you think Lester the Unlikely had it rough! But I love challenging games, that's why I play my Elder Scrolls and Fallout games on the harder settings... and die... a lot. I really wish I had a PS3... oh wait I'm getting one next we- "You Hollowed"

You can easily figure out that there is no way the guy playing the game in the vid can finish Demon's Souls. Never seen someone play that horrible. BTW the game didn't seem so difficult I agree with esfuerzo31. The movement of NPCs is rather slow. And we can jump a great improvement from Demon's Souls. I promised myself not to play another game that is as difficult as Demon's Souls seeing how frustrating it was. Dying while in fight with a boss and starting all over again nearly had me break the disc after breaking my own controller.(Thanks to spear and shield tactic I didn't) I need some checkpoints during the game don't make it so hard or add difficulty option I play games to enjoy them not have my a** beaten all over again, though there is no saying in how great Demon's Souls was and I'll give this one a shot too but if it turns out to be too hard I'll sell it to someone else. PS: Do we play as a demon or something or is that only the armor?

lol @ "you can be a d*** and lead someone into a death" A game that supports trolling? 1. Power up 2. Go near the fire in a corner and wait there 3. Let it charge you 4. Die 5. Problem?

Between Dark Souls and Skyrim, fall of 2011 is going to be a exciting time for gaming.

That was a good interview. This game is looking awesome. After I played Twilight Princess, I've been dreaming of a game like this. I'm glad to know that it'll have a ton of replay value! =D

i'm so glad this will be multiplatform, there are so few challenging (but not cheap) games on the 360

Can't wait! Great game... Demon Souls and Dark Souls looks awesome. Although, the demo video here was a little bland and redundant.

Demon Souls is one of my favorite games ever...Definitely getting this...not sure which console yet tho...im primarily a PC gamer but have both consoles as well...im leaning toward PS3 just because the Demon Souls was a PS3 exclusive which may offer some evidence that From Software is more familiar with that console coding...may mean less bugs...however, depending on how they spruce up multiplayer, it may be interesting to play this on Live...gonna hold off on preordering just so i can get Kevin's reviews regarding console differences...because we all know Kevin already has dibs on reviewing this!

kinda wish they would have shown one of the other classes, i'd like to see how the witch or pyromancer plays, and what the soldier has to offer. the dark knight cklass is obviously sick but its exactly what i expected to see. may get this over skyrim... only so much time to play rpg's lol. not to mention difficulty is a plus factor for me. (360 owner so missed out on demon's souls :\)

i cant wait to invade others games/ have others invade my game/ get help from 3 other people on rediculous a** bosses/ spend 8 hours at a given time playing this game... this looks way too amazing, would b sweet if they could work cross platform gameplay from 360 to ps3 and vice versa, then u would NEVER have problems finding help.
