FROM wouldn't be the one remastering it anyway, Sony would farm it out to Bluepoint or Hexadrive.

Started this the other day. I'm not sure what I expected, but it's about on par with the other games as far as difficulty goes. The only thing that gets me is how long the levels seem to be so far. Well, 1-1 was really long, 2-1 didn't seem as long.

 

It is weird playing this after Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, Bloodborne, and Dark Souls 3. So much is the same, but it's maximally obtuse. Ken Oh and I were excited to do some co-op last night until we remembered password systems and convenience weren't invented yet. Luckily we only had a minor hiccup and were able to do some with no problem. There's a ton of phantoms running around. There even seemed to be another noob basically following me through the tutorial up through most of Boletaria 1-1. I found the area with the field of items and the dragons guarding them, and this dude was just standing there facing out towards them seemingly thinking "oh fuck" as only someone new to the game would have. 

 

It's surprising how little I know about or have seen of this game. The only thing I've seen is a video of someone playing through the tutorial. I did look up some stuff like level caps, weapon upgrades, etc just so I don't make any dumb mistakes. Everything else is a complete mystery though. Ken Oh and I were lamenting at how we were getting confused by basic things. I had to ask him where the stat requirements are listed when looking at a weapon because I was so used to looking at the very bottom and for a  but I couldn't find it. 

 

So far I just beat Phalanx and got to the spider demon with Ken Oh, but we RIP'd hard thanks to walking into spiderwebs.

Oh man. Demon's Souls is so good. I'm jealous you get to experience it all for the first time.

Demons is weird as all hell but I love it. If farming grass bothers you, there's a super easy dupe glitch. Though once you get a bit into the game you'll probably have tons anyway.

Farming "Pure Bladestone" is the last thing I was doing in this game. Spent an ungodly amount of hours trying to get it and never got one. Still haven't even beat the game, I got distracted trying to min/max my character for the PVPing that I'm never gonna do @__@

The only thing that frustrates me going back to demons souls is the crystal lizards not respawning
Well, having a weird set of rules for when they can spawn. It's a pain in the ass. Try to never let them escape

I'm gonna polish this off soon myself because I think I just have like two bosses left. I, too, had to look up the rules for crystal lizards, because I had heard they were very important in this one. I was pretty good getting most of them, though, and I actually don't know if they'll be that crucial for what I have left.

This was the only thing I needed to farm for the platinum.
I don't remember how long it took, but I just put on some podcast and went to town.

The wikidot page describes them with a sense of importance but doesn't really say for sure that you will need to get them. Not knowing item scarcity is always my #1 enemy in these games, i.e. if I make this longsword +1 will I regret it later!? By this point of course I know not to worry about it, although I had some concern for Demon's. But I got up to a +5 longsword and all I've done is beat Phalanx and Armor Spider, so I'm thinking it will be fine.

Beating this giant suit of armor is driving me nuts. I don't see how I'm going to do this by myself. This sucks sad.gif

Took me a second try. 
 

I really appreciate that. We'll have to make a play date and crush his shiny, metal ass.

 I wish to do thjis somehow!
 

Djinn, If you are having trouble levelling up, just try running through Boletaria again really quick. A top to bottom run will generate you about 6,000 souls and take about 10 minutes if you make no mistakes.

That Red Eyed Kight at the top of the castle can be "lured" away from his post, and you can cause him to "accidentally" jump down the stairs on the farther side of the castle roof. Instantly generating 2,000 souls, and giving you some nice healing loot, or possibly a wicked shield.

To Lure him away, just get close enough to him for him to start chasing you. Then run at a run at the default pace (not using circle) all the way to the adjacent side of the castle rooftop wall. It may take a few tries to get him to follow you all the way there, but if he turns around and starts walking back, begin the process. The one thing to remember is that you shouldn't bust those barrels on your way up the stairs. They provide a good barrier that he has a hard time getting around, so he jsut jumps after you, to his death.

Uh, actually, check this out. man youtube is great:

THIS!

Full and proper recap of my play:
I picked Temple Knight because I felt like it.
I start with a sweet halberd, a sweet healy miracle thing and an awesome shield.
EDIT: Oh Yeah! And Ridiculously good armor.
Got killed by the tutorial boss in two hits out of 5 swings(!) came back with other characters to try again, but kept with my original for the rest of the run.
Ran ALL around the Nexus at the start, just to make sure I wasn't missing anything and found two things! By Falling with style!
Then I went into the bol-lace!(boletarian palace)
Dragon kinda freaked me out, but whatever! Found the first healy at start, behind you, right off the bat on a guess.
Learned parry by the third enemy, got through to the Red-Eye knight and died around 5-6 times before I realize that he's just ridiculously powerful.
So I saw all the deaths in the opposite tower, from falling, and after opening the gate I lured red-eye over there and Sure Enough...*falling death groan**Souls+2000+ noise*
Then I found the crossbow, then went through the fog expecting a boss.
Took my sweet time sniping out the first fire-bomber, so not to get hit by fire barrels.
crushed Everything from there to Ostrava to the rolling balls trap. Figured That BALLS One out from the enemie's arrow shot getting dodged and the hitting me in the arse, literally.
But "I'm Ok!" (Didn't die from it.)
Then I guessed on luring the dragon over to the bridge with the two crossbowmen after the group gets fried by dragon, then got most of the loot.
The Dragon went unresponsive after I killed everyone and opened the gates and came back through after taking on Phalanx.
Hit and Away was my style as I dashed from one side of the room to the other, with plenty of turpentine from the Dreg-shop.
Left message, "Use Fire Weapons on Next enemy" and "Turpentine" at Phalanx's door, afterwards.
Went on through until I got to the War Dogs, which took all of them swarming me hardcore to actually kill me.
Took them Down by using turpentine, then striking the whole group twice over my 4-5 one-handed swings on them rushing me all at once, again from me not equipping the thief ring I didn't realize I had.
EDIT: "Oh yeah, Ostrava 2!" *backtracking...*
Saw Dreg-shop 2, went upstairs and stealth heavy double hit the four crossbowmen I flanked and spent 5-8 crescent and Half moon grasses recovering the treasure from the dead on that bridge. Not worth it, at all.
Cleaned both tower tops right before that excursion, thankfully.
Took out the trio of crossbowmen quickly with Turpentine and blocking and well-timed one-handed swings, just in time to fight the first black knight on even footing.
Merca'd the second black knight in one parry. Wiped the top clean, and again after facing off with the Tower Knight,
Spoiler

Then tried the swamp place. DERP!!
Kept dying at every third and fifth encounter until I realized that that level is actually level four.
Then I went to talk to the monumental, feeling I was missing something.
And tried to talk to the big statue.
So I collected all the ephemeral eyes and got frustrated sitting in the pantheon.
So I looked online and realized
Spoiler

THEN I ported to the mine and fought well after soul-leveling a little! So I have gotten down the rear attack very very well by this point and only died from the fat guard atop the broken bridge tower in the first mine area, then finally after three deaths cleared that room entirely.
Went looking around and found an item I haven't gotten to yet and the first organized "sortie" of lizard men (gorons, really...) but am wanting to have more prepped equipment and grass and such before I fling myself into that fight just yet.
---
UPDATE: Did some Temple of Storms grinding, saw the vanguard guy and want him dead, but know I can't do much as he's scaled-up from the tutorial boss in almost every way. MAYBE Including the speed of his animations.
That pincer spot is too tight to squeeze unless I pump up my defense up more.

Took me running through a fourth time to find the red-eyed skeleton man. Died from him twice but only on my third and fifth encounters, re-running for extra souls to buy the "exit stage (left)" miracle.
Spoiler


Went back to backwards running Boletaria Palace, butt-stabbing galore to get more shards of Hardstone from phalanx, souls and grass.
Works well enough if I DON'T run into the ass-end of the WarDogs pack and STOP GETTING MAULED BY DOGS! So I ported to phalanx archstone from dying, then made them regret being there by turpentine and being prepared this time!

Black knights are still PLENTY WEAK to me!
Then things got weird and stopped loading the way down and the underside of the palace wall, so I used my new miracle and left and shut down the game!
(To Let the PS3 chill for a while.)
Oh yeah, I had to use a meltstone on my Halberd +4 to make it +0 to then try to make it +3 to then make a "Quality Halberd" so on so forth.(Since I Just made the Sticky Bow and up to +2 after dealing with the swamp a while back. Then getting reminded by you guys about that weird upgrade stuff! Thank You!)
