meh... my copy didn't even come in today via Amazon and I ordered in May with release date delivery!! I complained to Amazon and they gave me $5 credit I'll take it lol... still undecided about putting it up on Ebay though, we'll see.


Value is already tanking, just enjoy the game. I am enjoying it a lot more than Demon's Souls.

CAGFL: (187-31)

Fancied up the OP with reviews and some strategy links and info. Also, Amazon currently has the hardcover guide for less than $14!

Ordered my guide last night. Its OOS right now, but you can order it on backorder. Worth a shot to see if they get them again!

anyone around SL 67 want to kill the wolf with me and will do the same for them. Hell i will let the other person go first i am hollow right now at the wolf den huge doors waiting. We should get a thread going on here to co op this bad boy. I love the game to death but co op with randoms takes like 30-2 hours maybe even more to find a random to bring me along to a boss fight. That is a long idle spree.

I beat him at 50 something but I'm willing to help you beat him, that is if we end up on the same server. I beat him by rolling to avoid his attacks and then using Great Combustion (Pyromancy spell) when I had an opening.

Anyone know if it's okay to exit the game without quitting, by using the guide button?
(Turn off system/go to dashboard)

You might be ok, but there's explicitly a warning that doing so may cause your save to get corrupted, so do you really want to take that chance?

On the other hand I know I've gone into options and quit the game correctly through the menu, and STILL had a warning come up the next time I played that my game may not have been saved correctly, so go figure.

I always quit through the option screen, was just wondering if it was alright to do it the fast way.

Seems like every time I start to get into the thick of things, someone calls or wants something.
Have to do the "slow stand up while backing out of the room and navigating options" move.

Co-Optimus finally published our co-op review! It's highly detailed and focuses on the multiplayer functionality (while still covering the rest of the game too).

This is one of those games where I really wish there was a demo. I'm so on the fence about grabbing this but without a demo to actually test the "insane difficulty" to see if I even enjoy myself I can't justify anything over bargain bin prices.

So is nobody playing this game? Or are you all too busy playing to talk about it? Lets go people. Lets talk. What weapon are you using?

Iaito +10 here.

Playing, but not posting- mainly stick to the Dark Souls thread in the PS3 section.

Level 75 Bandit
Battle Axe +10 (good)
Demon Spear +2 (better)
Quelaag's Furysword +2 (best)

Busy playing, although I had to take a week off because I was out of town. Level 28 thief, weapon's not worth mentioning. I'm still loving it, and trying to stay away from guides and such until I'm tired of playing.

Theres no party chat or private chat allowed in this game apparently.
Not that anyone wants to hear me screaming anyways.


Hey I got this game for Christmas and I can see why they removed party chat, it would be a bit easier to coordinate things with a partner and It's a bit more enjoyable summoning random people because you never know what to expect when it comes to that boss batttle.

I am loving this game and I'm sure I've died at least 300+ times since getting to Blight Town (which I just left, and apparently took a shortcut so now I get to go back there lol).

This game is great, I'm shocked by the lack of posts in this thread and also how little GOTY nods it has gotten. Was Demon Souls better, or are people just sleeping on this game? (I never played Demon Souls because I don't own a PS3.)

... or maybe people are just bitter because this game requires patience and you just can't mash your way through it.

Guess I spoke too soon, gametrailers gave this RPG over the year (over Skyrim!)

I just got this game about a week ago and I have about 35 hours in.

Needless to say, I'm a fan.

Anyone still playing it? I'd love to get some discussion going.

Currently just rang the two bells and took down the Catacombs.

And yes, I'd say I am enjoying Dark Souls more than Skyrim.

One of my favorite games ever..I still play this constantly. How long did it take you to finish Blighttown? I really hated that place my first time playing....kept constantly getting lost.

A few hours. I originally tried to go very early, since I got a rare drop from a ghost (Jagged Ghost Blade) on accident and it upped my ATK from like 20 to 175. I had the master key and went there and checked it out, but I eventually realized I was way out of my zone. Blightown is my most dreaded of areas so far. Same with the Catacombs, but once I came back with a divine weapon, it wasn't so bad.

Sorry for the super old topic bump, but I went back to this game yesterday. Granted, I had only put in 5 hours, but something has me confused.

I died, came back, and died again without being able to collect my souls. Rather than resuming from that same most recent bonfire, it put me way back at the Undead Burg. I thought I was always supposed to start at the last bonfire activated, so why was I sent back ao damn far?
