Yea, the enemies are stronger imo. My brother took away my PS3 so I haven't played this game in over a week and stopped at anor londo at first bond fire.


Yeah, it seems like every enemy will have a chance to kill you as long as they're >2. I kind of miss the penalty on dying tbh.

Started playing this last week. I'm through Anor Londo and Blighttown. Dark feels much more fantasy, while Demon's felt more gritty, dark and oppressive.

From what I've dabbled and read about the covenants, though, Dark's got the edge in RPG stuffs. Demon's had cool bits of backstory and stuff to be found in the game world, but Dark probably has 100 times that.

The backstabbing done by invaders is just beyond stupid, though. It was pretty bad and glitchy in Demon's, but it's flat out embarrassing in Dark.

I beat this game on my xbox before it red ringed, but I just recently picked this up for the Ps3, can't wait to dig in and play the PvP on the Ps3 seems more abundant then the xbox because it was released first in Japan on the Ps3.

Like the pathetically low drop rate of the Pure Bladestone in Demon's Souls, I consider being forced to complete another iteration of the game for just 1 weapon artificial difficulty. For that reason I had no reservation about receiving a duped Pure Bladestone in Demon's Souls and I wouldn't begrudge someone holding onto the cursed Astorias sword so they don't have to do a 3rd playthrough.


Thanks - I agree entirely. I put in the effort and time on this game (120+ hours). It's not like holding a couple extra weapons gave me the platinum after just 10 hours of play or something.

You don't have to do a full 3rd playthrough though, just up to Anor Londo, and I'm begrudging io for not even doing a second playthrough.


I haven't even read this thread since my last post in early Feb, but this is just hilarious. I need to finish up that plat on Demon's Souls just to piss you off even more (as in that game someone let me hold the pure bladestone weapon and some of the rings). But I'm too absorbed in Mass Effect right now to bother with that. And hey, I played Mass Effect 2 through 3 or 4 times. I forget exactly - one or two times regular and again on insanity (to get all the achievements) and am playing again currently for the DLC and to get the correct story elements in line for ME3.

The point is I tend to spend a lot of time playing a single game and obsess over getting every item/sidequest/trophy. It's gotten to the point where I won't even start games that I know I'll sink 100+ hours into (eg, Skyrim) because I don't want to get tied down to a single game for so long. If I can shave a few hours off using a valid, in-game mechanism (sharing items via coop play is not a glitch) then I have no qualms about doing so.

Looks like a PC version is likely incoming, all manner of articles about an announcement about Dark Souls coming by April 12th and an Australian PC Mag teased an image of red letters on black simply saying "You Died."

Like on facebook to have the announcement come faster.

I could only imagine the mods/hacks that would ensue. I'd bet someone would find a way to create a true co-op mode as well. So many possibilities, but I'm not sure I'd bother with a PC port TBH.

PC version confirmed for late August including new content and bosses. I would assume the same DLC for the consoles would be released around that time.

Argh, have to wait until Winter. Oh well, I'll get it then. Haven't played in a few months now, and by then I'l probably just play through the whole game again a few times.

For now it seems that the CE contents remain as a PC exclusive and consoles just get a re-release according to the photos on their FB page. Also, the price of the dlc is set at $14.99

I just hope the DLC is easily accessible from anywhere in the game, like a portal in the Firelink Shrine or something. I don't want to be made to go through any areas to get to the DLC.

From the trailer it looks to be located where you fight the Hydra. I bet From Software will release it and let people figure out where it's at. I normally don't buy DLC for games without a sale but I will get this day 1. The trailer looks awesome.

Hahaha, that would be awesomely "in the spirit" of the game.

"OK, you bought the DLC expansion content. Good for you. Now go explore and find it"

You'd need to kill the Hydra to get access to the area, and probably need to find some item in a completely different area to access it (with in game item description hints of course)

And which Hydra are you referring to? The one in the forest lake or the one that glitch-dies as it chases you to the Dragon Covenant?

I was thinking the same thing on which Hydra it could be. I would guess it's the Hydra by the lake in Dark Root. The reason cause it seems there is a forest that's a lot brighter. I'm going to finish up my Platinum before this is out. I can't wait for this and glad From Software has made this DLC.

Excellent. I've managed to avoid all spoilers for the DLC thus far - just one more month to go! Of course, I haven't played since around February, so I'll probably get my ass kicked all over again. Guess I'll start a new character and run through once more as part of this....

The retail console version of 'Prepare to Die' is set to be released on 10/26. No real incentive to get it other than for the new box art or to have everything on one disc.

Damn. I got excited and let down for a second time ha. Not sure how I feel about buying it as DLC, since I've never bought any ever. Maybe if fans plead enough we'll get a GOTY edition and I can buy that instead. If not, I feel content enough that I've already beat Dark Souls and might skip on this.

I am fine supporting it because it is what DLC should be, content created after the fact to add longevity to a game which sold well, not features developed in tandem with the main game (which in the previous generation would of come with the game on disc at launch) then held back to milk extra money from the consumer.

Oh for sure and it's well done from what I've heard. I just prefer a retail copy is all because I don't mind paying extra, just like I did with RDR when they put out the Halloween DLC.
