Dark Souls Collector's Edition
Yes, the difficulty of the old generation
First, demon souls was amazing.......ly hard. But also a really fun game. Still, it isn't anything impossible as long as you have patience and realise it is more trial and error then anything else. I've played far harder then demon souls, only two or three games however, so it didn't get to me a whole lot, especially since I'm patient. anyways, if dark souls is harder then demon souls I'll happily accept the challenge. That said, this game is not for everyone, if you have low patience or a general dislike of the difficult, or expect everything handed to you on a gilded platter studded with diamonds, don't get it. It is not something you'll enjoy. Also PS3 fanboy, I have to have fun with ya man, but a consol with a very shallow pool of good exclusives has nothing to boast about, just saying I loved the ps2 and regret my overly expensive blue ray player, with few good exclusives and apparently easy to hack PSN. Hope sony pays in some way if my information ends up being abused.
Cant wait! But the CE is now ruined!
I have had this game on reserve for about 3 month now, and I was super excited for the free upgrade to Collectors Edition, untill now. According to the Official Site, the Mini-Strategy Guide Book, Soundtrack CD, and Behind The Scene videos are now included as DIGITAL DOWNLOADS!!! What in the wolrd were you thinking Bandai?!!! do you know how excited I was to read the guide book anywhere I wanted to take it? now you are forcing me to have to run back to my laptop every time I want to know what a specific skill does or whata re the stats of a boss! Also the Behind the Scene videos, do you really think that all of the people that will be playing your game have the best internet connection to download Movie( 700+MB) videos? I sure dont. The Music CD was a digital download from the start so im not that mad, but still you made the whole package digital, and I would have preffered a SteelBook game case that a tin that will just take up space when all it has is a card with codes on it. Also, the Music CD i can get from a torrent site, the guide I can get from Wikia pages and I can watch the behind the scene videos on youtube. Thanks for ruining this collectors edition Bandai. The Collectors Edition gets a 2/10, but im sure the main game will get a 9/10 from me. I cant wait to play the game, its the collectors edition changes im not happy about.
Cannot compare to Skyrim
Tired of people saying that Skyrim is better or that Dark Souls is better. Yes these are both RPG's but they are both different types of RPG's. The only thing they truly have in common is the fact that they both have similar games come before them... Oblivion and Demon Souls. And to the person below... Dark Souls is not a linear game... it just requires you to use your brain to find the different ways around a situation. If your calling Dark Souls linear, you might as well call Skyrim linear... sure the world is "open" but you follow the line of the story from start to end just like any other RPG. So in the end.... Skyrim is Skyrim.... Dark Souls is Dark Souls.... just leave it as that.
Prepare to be punished....again and again
DemonSouls was hands-down the hardest game i have ever come across, death was expected at every corner i came across. it was a game that rped you and punished you again and again...and left you wanting more. i feel the challenge is what makes this game more unique than other dungeon crawlers. i have the same expectations for this game, in short...i'm looking forward to being punished agnain and again for countless hours ;)
This will be awsome!
Demon souls was one of the best PS3 games I ever played. When I switched to xbox, I was disappointed about not being able to play demon souls anymore. This is going to make my whole year. This game will be hard and you WILL die a lot. The basis of this game is to die to learn from your mistakes. It is one of the few games that I find rewarding for playing and beating. If this game is even as half as good as demon souls, you will love it. I think it will be twice what demon souls was.
This game is not for anyone who gets frustrated easily!
Going to be Awesome
always wanted to play Demon Souls but never have owned a PS3 so when i heard Dark Souls was going to be a Dual-Platform game i was pumped. looking forward to seeing more trailers as it gets closer to the games release date
I am really happy to know another game, following from Demons' Souls, is going to be back with a better and more massive experience! I am really looking forward to it, but the only downside is the long wait!
The most brutal game ever!!!
One of the most difficult but most satisfying games ever played. Dark souls looks to be everything i'd hoped for. If you are one who gets easily frustrated with video games, then this game is not for you. If you like a challenge and an immersive game world then this is for you. I'm really looking forward to this game and i recommend it to anyone who likes any kind of action adventure. Whether it gets the attention it deserves or not i promise you do not overlook this game.
My game of the year!! Cant Wait..
Im a huge fan of Demons Souls on my PS3! One of the best RPG's Iv played. The game was so Dark, incredibly hard, and with the addition of having other players invaded your world to steal your soul was awesome. The only downside to playing Demons Souls was their was no voice chatting, everyone had to be in a dumb text chat in order to talk to each other. Now with Dark Souls going multi-platform ,I can play this on my Xbox 360 with party chats which is a huge welcome addition. Cant Wait for this game, will buy it for both Xbox 360 and PS3!
A whole lot of hard
Played the first game, Demon's Souls, on my friend's ps3 (since what i've got is a 360) and fell in love with it. Like Demon's, Dark Soul's will be an open world dungeon crawler. It will have pvp, co-op and (like Demon's) an "note-leaving" system to give other players hints of what lies ahead while its just you playing. Dark Soul's is advertised as being harder than Demon's which was known for its great difficulty, having a system in which upon second play through, difficulty rose 40%. The difficulty is a good portion of the reason I loved the game and now cant wait for this. Now that it is being released multi platform for 360 I dont have to hate myself for not owning a ps3 (because I would, even if only for Demon's Souls)
