Anyone picking up Dark Souls in a couple weeks?

I don't have a PS3, so I never played Demon's Souls, but the difficulty and its supposed fairness, plus the great combat made me interested in the game. Pretty much the same reasons Monster Hunter attracted me. I'm watching a let's play of Demon's Souls to get an idea of what I'll be up against so I'm not completely blind when going into Dark Souls. I'm almost thinking of buying a one or three month pack subscription for Xbox Live to get the full experience.

Yeah I'm picking it, I played Demon's Souls a bit late as I am a PC gamer but I really enjoyed it. I played it on a livestream that a lot of people apparently liked so I might do the same for Dark Souls, or I might try and get into the experience on my own.

I do really wish that it was on PC though, I hope someday that an indie company can make an RPG similar to it.

I'll hopefully be able to play with some of you Bronos when the release day comes.
>> No. 4766 [Edit]
Demon's Souls is still my favorite current gen game and I put over a thousand hours into PVP alone (even though I never got above the level of dime-a-dozen average pvp player level).

I have a few people on my list who will play it but if anyone wants a half decent co op buddy or gold phantom or whatever the hell they're called now, just ask.

So cruel.

>folks who managed to grab illicit, pre-launch copies of Dark Souls are being punished by developer From Software. The site says that members of the dev team are dropping horrifically overpowered, maximum level Black Phantoms into the environments of players who grabbed their copy of the game through a retailer that broke street date.
>> No. 4780 [Edit]
Nothing beats the cruelty of Earthbound. If it saw you were playing a pirated version it would up monster spawn rates by like 10, and if you managed to get all the way to the final boss it would freeze during some dialogue and erase your save.
>> No. 4791 [Edit]
so theyre punishing players because a retailer sold them the game early? thats stupid.
>> No. 4792 [Edit]
more like they are punishing people who work in retail who lifted the game
>> No. 4793 [Edit]
Also I'm sure they will stop sending the monsters when the street date hits, so it's more funny than mean. People playing now get to experience something nobody else can!
>> No. 4806 [Edit]
Well, I just bought a month of Xbox Live through the Xbox dash for $1, so I'll be playing online once it's out next week.
>> No. 4868 [Edit]
Damn, this game is great, loving the online aspect. Did anyone else pick it up today? I just spent around the past 8 hours playing, started as a Bandit. It took a good hour or two to get used to the controls, button layout and combat, lots of stupid deaths early on, but I'm getting the hang of it.

Surprised myself by managing to kill a pretty tough NPC named Lautrec that dropped Ring of Favor and Protection, which is insanely good, and that's when I stopped.

It's a shame stat scaling on weapons is awful. Was it like that in Demon's Souls, as well?
>> No. 4920 [Edit]
So elemental weapons are being readjusted next patch with regards to stat scaling weapons, yay.

I beat the game today. Last boss was pretty tough, but I managed to beat him with some quick attacks, dodging, and lots of blocking. Not starting a new character until I finish some other games. I need a break.

Anyone else is getting this on steam?

I never got to play it online on my ps3, so I'm definitely buying it this time.
>> No. 7035 [Edit]
When it gets cheaper. As in 75% off that is worth at most $5.
>> No. 7036 [Edit]
I'm going to wait first, I'm worried that the PC port will be really bad.
>> No. 7037 [Edit]
I'm pretty sure stat scaling was pretty important in Demon's Souls.

But in Dark Souls, elemental weapons were so much better than stat scaling weapons, everyone just gouged vitality and used an elemental weapon. Granted, I stopped playing before 1.05 came out, so I don't know if that changed anything. So it's good to hear that they're planning on fixing it:
>> No. 7038 [Edit]
I already pre-ordered it through GameStop.

It doesn't seem like it's gonna be a terrible port, since the fps drops are fixed with a faster cpu, but I wouldn't expect anything extra besides the DLC content.

I really hope they get rid of GFWL before release.
>> No. 7058 [Edit]
GameStop shenanigans ruined DEx:HR for me...
>> No. 7072 [Edit]
I don't get all the GameStop hate, sure they're pretty horrible, but so are every other retailer. I mean, why does everyone love Steam? They force you to be online to play games that you've rightfully bought and display commercials after you're done playing.
Of course, they're cheap, but so is GameStop.
>> No. 7073 [Edit]
steam has a offline mode, steam doesn't however open new games to remove content they don't like and loan out the games to employees, then sell the same games as new.
steam has some really crazy sales, marking good games down to like 90% off at times.
where as gamestop sells everything at ripoff prices, in many cases only marking down 'used' copies of games by $5 (becuase it's not used if a employee played it right?) charging $50 for something they might have paid the customer $10 for.

Capra demon is easy after the first minute of the fight.
Just remember to kill the dogs first, and use the stairs to your advantage, if you are fast enough you can drop from there and stab his head.
>> No. 7453 [Edit]
I didn't actually know I could walk that far out onto an arch in my first 20 attempts or so, and usually the dogs got in my way when I tried to get to the stairs. Eventually beat it by running up and jumping down lots.

After that, I spent something like 2 hours wandering around some sewers, without a single savepoint in sight before running into the Gaping Dragon. Can't say I was very hopeful, but it was a surprisingly easy fight and I only got hit about 2-3 times by the tail attack. Must be my experience from fighting Elder Dragons in MH.

I wanted to get this on steam, but then I watched some LP's, and the backtracking makes Metroid look like a walk in the park. I'd lose my mind, so yeah, I think I'm passing. I still have it on my wishlist, though, so you never know what might happen if it goes on sale.
>> No. 7458 [Edit]

Here. You'd be surprised how much cool new stuff you find when backtracking. Whole new areas, NPCs, shortcuts and the like. It reminds me a lot of Vagrant Story.

I recently beat Ornstein and Smough solo as a 2h only no shield no magic no ranged "guts" build. I've never felt more proud of my accomplishments in a video game.
>> No. 7460 [Edit]

That's pretty neat.

I've been meaning to make a SL1 darkwraith build, but I suck too much to beat 4 kings.
>> No. 7462 [Edit]
You should be more proud of getting past the two archers with that build.

This is what I did. The winged demons are usually more trouble than the archers, for me.

Without getting the attention of the two demons, I sprinted to 2.
Sprinted towards the center of the room first before heading for the walkway. The demon on the left as you walk in is the one that usually fucks me up if I turn left too quickly. Then, I sprint up the walkway while zig-zagging to avoid the demons' lightning bolts and the arrows. The demons usually walk off the edge to their death.
Waited for an arrow from the archer on the left to hit the wall, then sprinted towards 4.
Ran towards the archer, rolling to avoid the arrows. You can also parry the arrows (even with an empty hand) if you're brave. It's then a case of simply kicking him off the ledge or fighting him as usual.
>> No. 7467 [Edit]
Yeah, most people that do that have to get some help for them. I've never been one for invasions, outside of the darkmoon cov, which even then is mainly for the buffs, after which I put down my red sign instead.

Looking forward to the DLC for the PS3, but I can't afford to get it day one.

Miyazaki didn't produce Dark Souls 2, so 3 is a direct sequel of 1.
