    Excellent. Demons souls is an amazing game, looking forward to this

    And good thing, too, because it seems that From has actually upped the difficulty!

    Jesus!:eek:

    Yeah tman, similar reaction here!

    Difficulty up'd like how? Someone from From Software comes to your home, breaks your hands, hands you back the controller and presses start. (Actually pressing start would probably constitute waaaaay too much assistance).

    It sounds great from the description in the posted article and the Kokatu article. It will be interesting to see how they replace the nexus and how they implement levelling up.

    Awesome. Demon's Souls was a little too easy for me in the end. Can't wait.

    You mean demons souls renamed dark souls...

    No, he means Project Dark has been renamed Dark Souls.

    It is, but it had a working title of Project Dark up until last week. The new name was just released.

    retr0 i can hug you :P

    **** yes, very near the end of the 1st one and I certainly want more!

    Demons souls is a true gamers game. Its also one of the few pure console games and does what consoles do best instead of trying to be a PC game like most modern console games do these days.

    So refreshing and exactly the kinda game I was hoping for to relive my console days when I bought a ps3.

    Agreed. The learning curve was indeed steep, but too short. Once over the hump the back 40 was easily, but enjoyably, completed. You only really started to feel that same resistance again in NG+

    I'd appreciate if the initial difficulty remained for the entire game in the sequel.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,499 ✭✭✭ SK1979


    Is there any indication when the Japanese launch might be yet?

    Even though its on every platform, with the PS3 being multi-region, it might still be necessary to pick up that version if we're waiting a while for a European release. :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,920 ✭✭✭ AnCapaillMor


    By all acounts it'll be released the same time in the EU, US and Asia. Should'nt be too difficult, demons souls wasn't exactly over flowing with dialogue and story for translation.

    Couldn't agree more.

    Didn't hear that but if it doesn't pan out that way I'll be importing for sure. Waited far too long for a Euro release last time and the Jap version had enough English text to make it playable.

    They better have some sort of pause menu , i cant tell you how many times i was in a middle of a battle and dying to go for a crapper


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,920 ✭✭✭ AnCapaillMor


    Leave the "pause" out, that was part of the atmosphre of the game, nothing like the feeling of fighting maneater, you've 200K+ souls and you're dieing for a piss. I tapped and crossed my legs so much\fast i think one of my feet went back in time.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 48,819 CMod ✭✭✭✭ Retr0gamer


    Apparently this game is going to be a bit more like Kings Field in that instead of mostly linear levels the levels are going to be huge branching affairs that are a lot more open. Cannot ****ing wait!

    I agree. I would also like to see more consistancy in the level and boss design throughout. If I have one criticism (and I hate myself for having it) of the game it is that I feel From Software ran out of time and resources to complete the latter levels of each world - I didn't feel that they were as deep as the early levels.
    (The length of the levels 2-3, 3-3, and particularly 4-1 and 5-1. Walk through fog gate and you're immediately onto the boss. Those levels bosses were also a bit' cheap' - Astrea wasn't even a boss fight and 3-3 was so cheap they got you to play the boss....for FREE!:) Ok, a little inspired there!)

    I imagine with the success of Demons Souls this will not happen on Project Dark. I really like the idea of the open world exploration.

    Gamespot First Look:

    Agree with the no pause menu. Pause is for paussies!

    Also came in handy (repeatedly) for the odd domestic chore request - "Sorry dear, remember, no pause facility with this game".
