- punishingly difficult gameplay

Well f*ck me. Demon's Souls was already too damn hard for me.

Sounds like the famed difficulty will be kept in Dark Souls

 

 

“I have no intention to make the game any easier,” says a defiant Miyazaki. “In fact, I want it to be more difficult. The way I put it to my team is that we are trying to make the most difficult game that it is possible to make, which at the same time can be conquered by those who persevere"

 

I'm just so glad this is coming to the 360, as Demon's Souls was one I really wanted but was exclusive. I like the fact that someone's going against the grain of over the top handholding these days.

HAHA I've barely touched Demon's Souls since I bought it. Not that I didn't like what I saw its just hard to keep up with all the games I'm playing. Its on my backlist atm.

Really looking forward to this one, Demon's Souls was one of those games that was very hard but in a way that every time you died you learnt something new. Whether it was the location of a specific drop/fall, how to tackle an enemy or a better location this meant that so long as you were patient with it and didn't try to rush too much you could generally tackle every challenge on the second or third attempt.

I've added some thumbs to the OP of EDGE magazine scans. I can't put any more imgs in that post so here's the rest of them:

 

 

The write-up is the same article that appears online, and which I linked to in the OP.

 

Also - and I'd take this with a pinch of salt - amazon Germany has this down as releasing on the 14th of October

Edit 2:

Revamped website. I'll tidy this first page up when I bump it

from page 3 again. Until then I'll edit this post

with any news that arrives.

Just got an e-mail from GAME about my LE pre-order and I thought it deserved a bump. I don't think GAME would change the release date without official info at this stage.

 

 

As you may already be aware, the UK release date for Dark Souls Limited Edition has changed to 02-Sep-2011. Changes to release dates are relatively common in the videogames industry and are unfortunately beyond our control.

 

...so that's a whole month earlier than anticipated.

^ thanks for all the info, I aprreciate it!

 

Demon's souls is an outstanding game in my opinion. And the difficulty as it should be. It's hard to get by if you're lightheaded, but with some tactic it is easy.

Well - got the game and it's fantastic. Just having a problem finishing enemies off. Their health regenerates, but that last sliver is so hard to knock off - I must be doing something wrong, any ideas.

Picked up the game two days ago. Only played a bit over an hour, and I really don't have any desire to keep playing. I was warned that it was difficult... but even the tutorial had me confused as to what I was even doing. Not to mention being completely and utterly frustrated.

 

Hopefully it gets better!

I found no problems with the tutorial being honest with you, it explained the controls properly and even helped you out with defeating the first 'Boss' pretty much all you'd need. I will admit that the moment when you get to Firelink shrine is a bit odd because it doesn't give you any direction at all. (Tip: Go towards the viaduct, not the graveyard with the skeletons, nor the stairs leading down) In a way that is the beauty of the game that you have to explore and discover and learn for yourself but at the same time it is also one of its most alienating attributes.

 

Key to the game really is patience, move slowly, watch your enemies and learn from your deaths. It's hard but there is a method to the difficulty and once you suss that it really isn't as bad as it seems.

 

Certainly not a game for everyone though.

sh*t I thought the stamina bar was the enemies health! lol. No wonder I'm having trouble finishing them off - I'm attacking with a tiny bit of stamina

Yeah, I am a Sorcerer class. I didn't realise in order to use my spell I needed to equipt a weapon in the sword slot (I forget the name of it). It took me a while, but once I realise I couldn't/shouldn't kill him with my pathetic sword, it was a lot easier.

 

Thanks for the advice! smile.gif

So how is everyone progressing so far in this? I was planning on writing a diary for it as a feature for my website and keeping a tally of how many times I died but after the 20th death I kinda gave up on the idea.

 

I did however write this up for people: http://www.pwgaming.co.uk/?p=4153 Feel free to contribute, will give full credit of course.

 

For my progress I've just beaten the Gaping Dragon. So far I've noticed the game forces you to get a lot more up close and personal with the bosses as opposed to Demons Souls where you could beat a few of them quite easily by staying away.

Is that the Taurus Demon? If so the best tactic is:

 

Spoilered For Anyone who doesn't want to know:

 

Enter the long bridge area and go up top, kill the two skeletons/zombies there. Then go forward and have the Boss appear. Head up the ladder and wait until he is at the foot of it and do an attack on him from above. (Similar to what you did for the very first boss, drop down and attack.) Afterwards lure him away from the ladder and run past him and repeat. The reason for luring him away is that he can hit you while you climb and it HURTS

I think he is talking about the Asylum Demon.

 

I was using the Deprived Class and only had to retry a couple of times.

 

Be sure to circle it and sprint in when after it attacks. Hit it once or twice and then back off again.

 

Be careful when its low life because it then starts attacking twice in sucession.

 

Dont be afraid to jump as well.

It was the asylum demon, killed it shortly after I posted. Just got killed by the Taurus Demon and had to go way back. Think I missed a load of loot on my way up to the Taurus Demon so I'll go back, recover, then go back and loot.

Looting is always good, that area with the first Bonfire up until the Taurus Demon is actually a fantastic little grinding area, can net you about 1,000 Souls a run.
