Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

I'd be willing to bro-op Dark Souls if anybody has it on PS3. Or even Demon's. I bro-oped the whole of Demon's Souls with a mate and it was fucking awesome. Especially with the infinite soul glitch.

Also Sephiroth, fuck your Lightning Iaito. Moonlight Greatsword is where it's at. All of a sudden these pesky invaders that gave me so much trouble have turned in to bitches. Apparently nobody has high magic defence. Pain in the arse on the DLC though.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

so I bought the prepare to die edition through steam for $3.99 or something ridiculous...for some reason, this game doesnt strike me as the epic that everyone here is making it out to be. Did I buy the wrong game? 4

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

It's not a game that blows your mind from the first mission like a Mass Effect or one you immediately feel the sheer scope of like Skyrim. It's the subtle things, atmosphere, lore, (or lack of, as there is a lot of speculation) finally defeating that boss that's been killing you for days. Defeating the gargoyles after hours of pain and standing on the rooftops looking out at Lordran as the sun breaks the clouds with an undying sense of relief and satisfaction. So many moments like this that aren't created by pretty graphics or and awesome soundtrack or even that much of a script.

Not everybody gets it, which is why there's only a few posters such as LC and SoupBro who keep this thread alive. They GET the little things that make Dark Souls (and Demon's Souls) so great.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

So, did I make a mistake by getting Demon's Souls over Dark Souls? They were both about the same price, but I thought I'd go with the original first. Since the stories don't intertwine, though, I feel like I should've gone with Dark Souls instead.

I know you're mainly joking around here but you're probably the only person with this amount of experience with DS that speaks about pre-patch in that way. Most people call it unbalanced more than anything. For every over-aggroed enemy or enemy that gives no souls (seriously fuck that shit) there's swaggering through the game with Iron Flesh.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

The weapons and armor were more powerful (seriously, crystal ring shield was the most OP weapon ever) but the enemies were a lot tougher.

They nerfed so much.

I like to compare pre patch to post patch by saying pre patch was like Detroit during a riot and post patch is like a small town full of rapists.

I've never played Demon's Souls, but from what I've read they're pretty similar. Dark Souls just has better graphics and a longer game time, but from what i've seen Demon Souls is harder.

They're both worth playing, and I'm personally thinking of picking up Demon Souls when i'm done with Dark Souls

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

Main difference is world tendencies and structure/linearity

But otherwise they are basically the same, Dark Souls is just more polished and tighter.

Edit: Oh and Dark Souls is easier because Demon's Souls players weren't pussies about difficulty and got the game patched to make it easier.

Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011

I got Demon's Souls for free because of ps+ a while ago and I loved it. It's the reason I bought Dark Souls and the reason I can't wait for Dark Souls 2 now. Something about these games is so damn addicting.
