Dark Souls Collector's Edition
Die alot, lose all Souls (XP) do over and over
I find the game to have poor Graphics to start off with. Being it is on an Xbox 360 I would have thought the Graphics would be much better than what they are. The Nintendo N64 has much better graphics. When you first enter the game there is nothing that tells you how to play the game. You have no clue what you are doing, or what you are supposed to do. I have Killed mobs and then died on others just to lose everything I have earned. Pretty much the 3 days I have had the game I have done the same fights over and over. In all Honestly I thing the game sux. I would never recommend this to anyone.
This game looks great.
Ok so ive never played demon souls but i can already im going to love this game. I mean i love games that make you think first before you do anything and i can already tell im going to do alot more dodging and blocking than attacking. And dont get me wrong but i think this and skyrim are close ties because i mean sure skyrims kind of your average RPG but i also like games that are different like this.
What can you say about dark souls? Its the most difficult, frustrating, obnoxious, unfair game ever created. At the same time it is the most rewarding, excellently thought out, complex game I've come across in years. There used to be a time when video games did not hold your hand, they gave you very little direction, they'd give you tools at your disposal, but comprehending what they were for what entirely up to the player (think nes the legend of zelda). Dark souls is the only game I've come across in the past decade or so that requires you to actually experiment and learn on your own. It is unbelievably difficult and you will find yourself dying a thousand times over to the same 5 enemies until you work out a system, and once you have you'll be able to slaughter any foes of their type in your path, which a completely rewarding feeling. This games story seems like it was probably poorly translated and doesnt make much sense but the gameplay itself more than makes up for it, I have wasted close to 20 hours on this game, accomplished very little and enjoyed every moment of it. Whether your exploring every nook for hidden items (and possibly horrific enemies) or just determining how to clear an area of several enemies or even grind (yes, grind) xp off monsters you know you can tear through, everything about this game is satisfying. If you approach it with the mentality that you WILL struggle through this game, your shortcomings just become learning experiences and the more experiences you apply to how you approach the games world/combat the more bamf you feel as a gamer in general. This game is classified as an RPG, while it shares tons of characteristics with other RPG's there is no other game that comes close to replicating the type of game play or intensity that dark souls has to offer. It is truly a unique and rare game (aside from demon souls, its predecessor)
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.
Looks good but won't beat skyrim
No doubt the game will be good and can compare to skyrim. However the game just isn't that popular why talk about dark souls when u can talk about skyrim. More people are just familiar with skyrim thanks to Bethesda's popularity with the elder scrolls and fallout 3/New Vegas. The game is worth checking out but even with muliplayer on it I don't think it stands a chance.
The game looks awesome. I missed Demon Souls because I dont have a PS3. I wanna get it, but im kinda scared. Lol I love this kind of game, but idk if my easily frustrated brain can handle it. Looks great tho.
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.
looks good but not goty
dark souls looks good but cant live up to es5 skyrim. Im not trying to compare but skyrim rpg dark souls linear take a guess which 1 is better
To easy for me/ demon souls
Am 100% sure this game gonna be beast!! but if it was as easy as demon souls am gonna be sad. demon souls was far 2 easy i didnt die that much like 5 times in the whole game and its long game.
GOTY? ... nope sorry :\
I LOVED demon's souls. but sorry people theres NO way this will get GOTY. are you all forgetting skyrim? There is no doubt in anyone's mind skyrim will get it. I mean cmon, Oblivion + dual wielding + dragons = best rpg ever made. this will definitely be a great game and I'm sure it would have a strong chance if it werent for TES 5
