    I just popped it in yesterday.

    Got past the first boss, and my shield vanished. Now, Im just getting killed before the merchant. So far, not fun. I may re-roll as a different character

    I'm playing as a Knight. Game is AWESOME. Maddeningly difficult at times, but never unreasonable. Each boss is like a puzzle you have to solve. I just killed this one-legged Lightning Throwing Boss who was a bitch.

    A friend of mine at work won't stop raving about this game. Every piece I read on it tells me he's right.

    Noooo, don't go down there yet, its really nasty. There's Frogs that will curse you. I'd go to the forest first and level up a bit. Lots of goodies in there and good soul farming.

    GET THIS GAME!

    Sadly, I blew my videogame budget for this month when I pre-ordered Battlefield 3. Probably all for the better, actually. I'll let Dark Souls take the back burner while I work through my other games that actually have plot.

    Ran throu the Forrest once, yeah, nice spot, and I´m definitly going back there for some Moss, but I don´t wanna spend 20k on that key right now, and with lvl 28 now, I figure, I´m strong enought for the sewers, we´ll see how that works out.

    I played this for an hour so far and it sucks. I'm really hoping the hype is right.

    The games have very little to do with each other I'm told.

    if you're a casual gamer, you're not going to like it.

    it's a hard game, and can be downright cruel sometimes. it's not unfair, but it can kick your ass and get you frustrated

    you don't have to, but it'll give you an idea of the gameplay and how it works.

    you should for the fact alone that it is a great game. as far as the story it's not really a big part of the game


    the first time i crossed the bridge on the castle on level 1-1 i almost had a heart attack. just fuckin awesome. you'll see what i mean when you get it

    Just bought the game today, does anyone play that caster class, pyromancer I think its called?

    Why in the world do they have me actually using an axe and a sheild as a caster? Do they become more spell reliant later in the game? By the way im not very far, I'm getting molested by that bridge boss everytime I face him.

    Doesn´t matter. When it comes to Story, those two aren´t linked, and they don´t really have much story anyway. It would help you understand lot of thing, but when you start demons souls, you will be completely lost at first, too, so it doesn´t really matter, which one you play first.

    Game takes a lot of patience, never let your guard down, wait for the enemy to attack and then strike fast and hard, if you don´t have the patience for that kind of playstyle, or get frustrated easily, this one isn´t for you. Most Spells are supposed to help you in combat, and not to deal huge damage.

    Casters or Archers won´t work like in other Games, you can´t just walk throu there and zapp out everything from a distance. Enemys will get to you on a regular basis, and you have to man up in close combat, too. Most spells are designed to give you an advantage in close combat, and not to deal a huge amout of damage, and kill everything before they see you. In this game, you need Skill and good reflexes, nomatter what class you play.

    That Boss is easy, climb up the ladder, jump down and hit him with a airborne attack, repeat 3-5 times, and he´s done.

    Yeah the Taurus Demon you just have to climb the ladder where the two archer were and jump-stab him a few times. When you get off his back lure him away from the ladder and get around him so you can climb back up. Rinse, repeat. He is also very vulnerable to fire attacks.
