You're always making progress in Demon's Souls even when you die. You definitely die a lot, but that's part of the game. Don't let that dissuade you.

I beat the first one and enjoyed every minute of it. And believe me, I have NO patience for punishingly hard bullshit games... this just isn't one of them.

Disclaimer: I haven't played Dark Souls, I'm just going by the reviews that claim it's very similar to Demon's Souls.

Kinda reminds me of how I describe Dead Rising!

When I get frustrated with 1 game, I'll go to the other. It will be just like having 2 wives. Mormon gaming...

Lord knows I've cheated on even my beloved Deus Ex HR with such tasty delights as Rez HD. Keep us posted on how the game is, I'm very curious about the multiplayer capability!

Game is pretty awesome so far. I made it through the tutorial only dying once. Loving the atmosphere, combat and music. How does the multiplayer actually work?

Further thoughts:

Goddamn it's hard playing these games without a wiki.. did half of Demon's Souls with it and thought it wasn't that bad. Dark Souls with no guidance whatsoever? Brutal.

Spent a good 20 minutes fighting dying at skeletons near the Firelink shrine, trying to get the items around them... find a Morning Star which helps a lot, and finally kill them off. Run towards the closest item and a giant skeleton spawns. Deeeead.

Run up towards the Undead Burg. Get firebombed constantly, go to take him out, get surrounded, deaaaad.

Loving it though. Atmosphere is great, and feels even better than Demon's Souls thanks to the open world.. feels much more cohesive so far. Rolled as a Warrior with the Pendant for a gift, betting that it might be important later.

Just played up to Lordran. This is looking to be sweeeeeet.

I loved your reaction to the tutorial monster, Shoe. Very accurate.

Prolly gonna hold off on any more till the weekend though, so I can basically immerse myself into it.

(Yeah, I'll most likely be playing a bit more tomorrow. Who am I kidding?)

EDIT: Rolled a warrior with the master key.

This thread serves to remind me that I should've freakin' pre-ordered this game back when I was thinking about it. I suck at buying new games!

Well yeah, but it looks like the price is somewhat jacked up there. I'd break down and buy the normal version before I did that.
