I love demon's souls and dark souls. But for some reason i like the way demon's souls had the levels set up better than having an open world. And also the multiplayer on dark souls sucks you cant even play with your friends. It was perfect on demon's souls though.

this game is so hard! i spent 30hours just getting to 1/3rd of the game (which is ringing both bells). now i'm about 50 hours in and just finished the 2/3rds. it's a very rewarding game but if your lvl 72 and you still are killed by the enemies at the start of the game because they push you off the ledge, something is wrong....very wrong with the game.

I talked to people who managed to beat the game and they hit lvl 130 just to beat the game!! this is an extreme hardcore RPG.

Is the PC version just the second game or does it include the first game as well?

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

GFWL is such garbage. I've never heard of this before but it sounds like it's worth picking up.

so i finally beat dark souls! ended at lvl 90 and around 60 hours (60 hours is short from a few of my friends who beat it). Now i'm going to have to say they made it pointlessly difficult for the wrong reasons. Most of the time i would turn a corner and be killed in 1 hit. This happened for about half the game and this is when i finally told myself it was okay to peek at the guide. because honestly i wasn't going to continue to play it anymore. come to find out, there is 4 different types of attacks, you can upgrade your weapons a crazy amount (not just to +5) and there are rings you NEED to use for each area of the game or you flat out die without warning (many boss fights). Now if they explained things from the start i wouldn't have wasted 30hours ringing 2 bells that took me 30minutes to do on my second play through.


SO F-U Dark Souls, and From Software. next time make a game that is playable....

Dark Souls is merely the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls. They're set in completely different worlds. PC is getting Dark Souls, not Demon's Souls.

Well, I had planned on buying this but GFWL? No thanks! Yet another game ruined for me through software I don't want. Whatever happened to games just being games? I just get suck of seeing Steam and so many other types of software attached to games now, even if I do like Steam, I don't want it forced into a game, it should be optional.

They should release both to the PC regardless. Oh well, may not matter...

:withstupid:

I hate to pick on Steam ...especially since it is the only one I allow on my system (removed Origin), but I been saying this since Steam. I like to keep things simple and clean. I don't want additional software in addition to the software I am putting on there. That is why I am ok with Bnet 2.0. I can log in and keep all my games in a library but i don't need software to do it as it is all server side.

Will definitely have to pass up on the PC version and just borrow the PS3 version from my friend ...since this generation of consoles still allows it. :P
