DEMON'S SOULS is the Ultimate Atmosphere King, and only cows are able to play it. Is it heavily frustrating?

How will you live without this??? What is your life's plan right now? This is a masterpiece on steroids, and you will never be able to play it. Is it frustrating? 🙃

I didn’t like my 15 minutes with Bloodborne so this is probably not for me either.

A response thread LOL, the frustration is coming from cows such as yourself because others don't care about this game, don't get frustrated, build a bridge and get over it :)

What if its coming but in 2023? Is waiting 3 years reasonable? By then, we will most likely have 2 other FROM games.

From a niche title barely anyone knows about, to a console seller. No matter where you look, everyone is talking about the game, including the casuals.

@hardwenzen: yep it’s telling when the most hyped launch title on both consoles is a remake... so pathetic! Personally souls games aren’t for me, so I don’t care for it, but good for the people who like these games!

Also has it been confirmed to come out at launch or just in the launch window?

I am guessing that if this game gets really well received we will get a sequel by Bluepoint. Japan Studios is the one overseeing the original DeS and Bloodborne so Bluepoint already got a great support.

Now Sony go and moneyhat bloodborne 2 already.

Why would this be frustrating?

You can easily pick up this game in baragin bins at the moment, and anyone keen to see the best version of the game should wait for the PC port.

Graphics and atmosphere look phenomenal. I love the idea that the enemies (except for the boss) are all 1 shots.

I actually despise hard games, but I really liked Sekiro, I played the first 2 hours at a friend's place.


Also have Bloodborne as it was free (thanks Sony) but I spent 6-7 hours and didn't get past the first goddamn boss.

Will buy and problably not make it past the first boss...

Are you really so sure that it will be better on pc IF it comes to it? The engine won't allow you to play at over 60fps and 60fps is already available on the ps5. Since the game is mostly in enclosed environment, i don't see why a 9.2tflops system wouldn't be able to max out its graphical settings and you're most likely gonna be using a controller as well.

@Mozelleple112: Oh sorry, perhaps I wasn't clear.

I meant that you can play Demons Souls today without needing a new console.

Or if you want to play the game at its best, you can wait for the PC version.

I'm not sure why people want the PS5 version though. Perhaps because they will have nothing else to play on the platform?

There is no way the enemies are one shot. The character was most likely overleveled to go through the demo quickly. If they nerfed the difficulty, the shitstorm will be massive, they will never do this.

This is what i am saying, Demon's is the kind of games that might not be any better on pc, you're just gonna wait 1-3 years for it to come out.

Dunno how you're not seeing why people want to play the PS5 version. Its only looking like the best remake ever made.

The trolling by Sony fanboys and their ability to trigger xbox fanboys so effectively currently makes for some seriously entertaining viewing.

Don't quit Bloodborne yet! Central Yharnam is just the tutorial area, designed to make you familiar with Bloodborne mechanics (or actually, weed out the casuals). Try to pass Father Gascoigne and see if the game click or not. If not then just move on to other things ~ ~

@Planeforger: Who the **** would play a PS3 game in 2020? I wouldn't play that game 7 years ago let alone today.

I want to play it in 4K Ultra graphics, by next year.

Where else other than the PS5 can I play this? Of course I want the PS5 edition.

I don't want to wait several years to play what will be an old game by then, nor do I want to play an 11 year old game low setting 720p no AA graphics.

I want to love this game. But I can't. I hope the remake is substantially less clunky and imprecise. Yes, I said it before and I'll say it again. I've been replaying the original over this last year, so it's fresh in my mind and not rosy hindsight,and the controls are clunky and imprecise. Combine with mindless pattern-based enemies, abysmal framerate drops, and muddy graphics... It needed a remake badly. So the question is, does the remake fix much of that?

@sakaixx: I know its just the beginning lol. I cleared out every monster in Central Yarnham like 3-4 times before find optimal routes to the boss. I keep dying at the hands of the first boss... it sucks that once you use molotovs and you die you don't get them back so you have to farm for ages...

That is not impressive. If it took only 10sec to load on an ancient PS3, you know that particular loading screen wasn't long to begin with. If the game ran on a standard $60 SSD, the loading would've been 2-3sec which is more than perfectly fine.

They're both different kinds of experiences. Demon's Souls is all about defensive play (at least that's how I played it). Bloodborne is action oriented and forces you to dodge.
