The game arrived.

I love the visuals and animations, they are really improved from Demon's Souls. The armor designs are beautiful and I'm very happy how my character turned out.

So I made a Thief, just like in Demon's Souls, and I think I'm already regretting it, cause the game is trolling me hard, but that goes away every time I do a successful riposte and feel like a ****ing hero, even against the most basic enemies.

This for me is game of the year but if you look around on forums and the like there are some of Demon's Souls vet who say that the game is broken and unplayable. That sounds kind of familiar though but what do I know, eh?

Well, reclaiming those 6000 souls and 2 humanity will be FUN. Possibly in the dwarf fortress kind of way.

The rock throwing Dung Giants can be dodged by going around the FAR right of the spider mound...

15 hours in the game, and so far:

Spoiler!


And now I have 4 options and I'm not sure how to proceed.

Spoiler!


I think I'll try my chances with the sewers.

Just saw this, farm some baddies using the crest to open up the forst door (which costs 20k souls from Andrei but worth every penny) but be careful if you going in there in human form, kill the unique baddies there (3 of them) you will be able to farm that area for 7000 per pop (think 4-2 from Demon's). If you do go into the Depths, watch the ceiling and the floor, if you see what looks like a cute frog just ****ing run if there is more than 1. I'm not kidding, you can one shot them for 200 souls but its NEVER worth it...

HOOORY SHIIIT!

This game is just incredibly good. Few games can be said to be able to live up to their hype, but this one is definitely one of them. Just WOW!

Today I've been playing almost the whole day without dying once, but by playing super extra careful the whole time, so I feel like I earned it.

Out of curiosity how does the summoning thing work? I mean it seems like it'd be annoying to be dragged out of your own game to play in someone else's, so I must not be understanding it.

You place a sign on the ground, and when another player sees it, he can touch it and summon you.

Finished the game yesterday, started ng+, and already the got the lord vessel in NG+ a few hours later.
You level up so fast in NG+, and you fly through the game. Was tonnes of fun ringing the 2 bells in less than 3 hours !

Considering i was at least 40 hours in before i rang the 2 bells the first time.

I hope they patch it to fix the scaling and imbalance issues. I'll probably stop playing until then. Then i might re-roll a new character.

Great game !

Hm, seeing how you have killed the Witch, do the same to Ceaseless Discharge...

I just did, took me a lot of trying but in the end I found a way to easily kill him.

I need to upgrade my Estoc, but I don't know what to do with it. Lighting, Fire, Magic, Divine, or Raw.

I'm in Anor Londo, the one thing I really miss from Demon's Souls is the Maiden in Black.
