    Default Demon's Souls

    Am playing this through a second time and is still hardcore as fuck.

    Proper decent this if you haven't played it before get it - probably my best game of the last couple of years

    Thought I would be able to breeze through it having done it before on import but - no

    proper old school hard game love it

    MUST HAVE game for PS3 owners 10/10 for me

    Old skool hard it has in spades mate. Dead in one hit from normal enemies? You got it! Restarting a dungeon from its entrance when you die? Yup.

    I got killed.by a boss before I even had a chance to hit it, lol.

    Don't forget the bit when you get killed 5 / 10 / 20 whatever times in a row it don't let you do an easy mode it just makes the enemies harder

    Some of the bosses you can 'cheat' on and stand where they can't hit you at all and kill them with ease but there is no fun in that is there?

    I think the bosses are the easy bit but working your way through the level for an archer to shoot you in the and have to start all over again iss epic

    I'm guessing you went to do it the traditional way, stage 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 etc..., so got stumped on the boss of world 1-2?

    That'll be your mistake. Try approaching it like 1-1, 2-1, 3-1 etc...

    i gave up on this game. the design is great and all - but its completely inaccessible.
    eg. no information in the game about something as essential as the cling ring....
    missing information and grinding in a single player game just killed it for me.

    The cling ring is useful, but hardly essential.

    The beauty of the experience is the trial and error, the caution, learning from mistakes. It wouldn't half the game it is if it held your hand.

    Try doing some black phantoms . . .

    I never bothered last time but have managed to do Miralda and Satsuki today and they were both fucking well annoyingly hard.

    Also do the black phantom skeletons on world 4 if you think the normal ones are hard

    You don't HAVE to grind at all through any of the game I did none at all first play through.

    cling ring is obv as soon as you equip it what it does?

    seen a video of someone beating this game with a new character in around 1 hour 10 - took me around 30 hours last time

    and I love the fact that it gives you no info at all on anything you have to use your head and work shit out yourself!

    If you do, get the Black Phantom edition - the guide that comes with it is quite useful.
