If this thing comes to a handheld (Vita) I'm not going to get anything else done! Can't see how touch controls would work on a phone / tablet touch screen though.

If the game turned out on the Vita and it was actually good i would buy a Vita. That's how much i like the Souls series!

Holy **** this is huge, please god bring it to the Vita so I can justify my purchase!

Even though there's only 2 games in the series it's already my favourite series of all time. Now the dust has settled, even though at the time I absolutely loved Skyrim the reality is Dark Souls >>> Skyrim.

GOTY by a mile and if there's more to come, i'm a happy man!!

I'm not sure the Souls games would translate well to a handheld. I suppose the shoulder controls could be replicated on the underside touchscreen of the Vita but I reckon it could get quite niggly. I suppose Vita is aiming for online gaming and it fits the bill there but I can only imagine the amount of lag-stabs you'd get over wifi!

Yeah that is true but devs have already been very creative with Vita controls even this early on so I'm sure they would come up with something that works. I'd have faith in From Soft.

On the wifi thing, it shouldn't be a problem. Wifi doesn't effect latency or cause lag at all providing it is set-up correctly. Wifi related issues are always down to the end user set-up rather than issues caused by using wifi itself.

All my PS3 online gaming is done over wifi and i've never ever had an issue but I always make sure I have the best possible setup and signal.

But on the other hand i'm sure you will have Vita players using less than ideal wireless setups which may add to the frustration.

However seems a bit pointless getting into it now when all we have is an IGN rumour to go on but let's hope it is something we will be discussing in detail with a future announcement!! The first game I downloaded for the Vita was Monster Hunter as it's the closest thing to the Soul's series you can get on a handheld!!

I decided to go back to this after completely exhausting everything Skyrim has to offer. Just managed to beat Quelaag by the skin of my teeth. The Dragon Crest shield was a life saver in that battle.
Went on to Demon Ruins. Spoiler: Beat the Ceaseless Discharge, who was easy enough once you knew what to do. Got slaughtered by the mini Taurus demons and the Capra demons there so I buggered off to the big Hollow in the tree at the bottom of Blight Town instead. Some deadly mushrooms at the bottom of that place there who can kill you with two punches:(
After the Ash Lake I'll decide whether to do the Valley of Drakes or Anor Londo next.

Christ I haven't played a game this challenging since Boulderdash on the NES twenty years ago

i would personally love to see an expansion pack for download for the ps3 version of dark souls. Hell i'd even pay for it if it came on disk and it was €20 plus euros. I've got many many hours out of Dark Souls at this stage.

I have not played the vita, but heard there is good connectivity between games on it and the PS3 , so if they did something like that for the next game , sur why not ! . I think they are wasting their valuable time (and our waiting time ) on tablets though. If they stick roughly to what they are doing I would be more than happy.

Not really interested in buying the game twice nor playing on such a small screen if I am honest!

Same here, I could never get used to playing games on small screen consoles.

Get ye to Anor Londo be!

Ash lake is only worth a visit if you need some dragon scales or want to Spoiler: join the dragon thingy covenant

Valley of the Drakes is just a connecting area. Spoiler: One decent shield, one ok weapon (depending on your build of course) there.

This would (I think) justify a Vita purchase. At least that's what I will tell myself.
For those of you trying for Platinum on this there's a decent checklist here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...vVlZaS0E#gid=0

Pretty handy - gives all the items, spells etc. needed and info (spoilers) on how to retrieve them.

The climb to get back out of Ash Lake was tricky enough. I'll be heading straight for Sen's Fortress and Anor Londo as soon as I take care of that big wolf with the great big sword in it's mouth

The dragon scales in Ash Lake came in handy Spoiler: as did the Dragon Covenant. The Dragon Head form is great for taking down the walking trees in Darkroot Garden

I didn't like that climb at all. Damn frogs! Try to get all the lizards while you are there. I had to come back much later in the game to retrieve them for upgrading my gear which was a pain.

By Lizards I presume you mean Dragon Scales? I managed to grab them all I got two off the Hydra when it bizarrely climbed onto the beach and killed itself. The only other enemies I spotted there were these giant clam type things and inside a tree hollow I came across a giant Mushroom Man and 2 of those infernal bloody curse frogs.

The climb was a right pain thanks to those feckin' frogs. I got cursed just the once but luckily I had 2 purging stones to spare. The bonfire at the top of the Great Hollow was a VERY welcome sight after that climb

The Great Wolf Sif is the next boss I'm gonna try tackle before I move onto Sen's Fortress. He kicked my ass so far with that giant sword, and the erratic camera during the battle doesn't help either. I'll bring him down eventually though
