Good grief Demon's Souls was a fun game. I pretty much have shelved my PS3 because of RL, but that game was a high point. Seeing this thread makes me want to pull it back out and try Dark Souls (plus Shadows of the Colussus...).
Did anyone else manage to beat the introduction boss (Demon's Souls)? I beat him once with my 3rd character, was pumped up thinking "hey what now?!", and then had a real laugh at what happens next...
You fight that guy in area 4 - 1 and can take him out quite easily if you dont manage to kill him at the start. Never done it myself though, think a Youtube moment is coming on to see what happens if you do beat him at the start.
Finally killed Ornstein and Smough yesterday, did a bit of grinding to level up from 56 to 62, summoned Solaire and managed to summon someone decent to help me with the battle. Was pretty epic. Then you meet a dark version of Squidward at Firelink Shrine t put the lord vessel in its rightful place.
Headed down into the Catacombs last night and worked my way through there, got invaded twice. First one was annoying as they kept running off, had a weird playstyle. Second one though was absolutely amazing, it was like a game of cat & mouse. Battle went on for a good 20 minutes, I kept climbing up the ladder beside the bonfire entrance to heal and they followed, battled a bit then they dropped down to heal and run into the tunnel to change weapons so I swapped out also. In the end we both ran out of healing items so was chasing him down. I finally got killed by one of the exploding skulls but it was REALLY close. Got a message through PSN from him saying great game.
Killed the Pinwheel first attempt but when I climbed out of the crypt the game pulled a dirty trick. Black Dark and I have no illumination spells, following the coloured lights to take me into Tomb of Giants and fell to my death as couldnt see the ground or 2 foot in front of me. So way back at the bonfire in Catacombs now. May actually try the shortcut in the coffin near where the Titanite Demon was as that takes you to Tomb of Giants from what I have read.
I still prefer Demons Souls to this one. Im not sure I will play through it again a second time once I get through it at the min, at times it can be extremely frustrating. At least I have moved forward now, had been stuck on Ornstein and Smough since before Christmas so had stopped playing.
