Default Dark Souls

Only a few more days until the Most Anticipated Game of E3 2011 is released. Dark Souls, the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls, and likely to be one of the hardest games available on the 360. I ordered this yesterday after seeing the IGN review for it, after being stunned by the designs of the enemies and environment, seriously these visuals deserve the Best of award for design and graphics.


Its looking very grim, in a good way, and I can't wait to try this game out. But if anybody dares try to get into my game and kill me i'll annihilate them.

Anybody else getting Dark Souls? Order it before release and you get a free upgrade to the limited edition.

It's at the top of my gamefly list. I loved Demon Souls and I'm hoping this lives up to the hype.

Personally I play games for fun. Yes, I like a challenge.... but when a game tells you you will die and sections of it are sadistically hard, that just doesn't sound like any kind of fun in the slightest to me.

I don't know why you're so hot for those visuals. Both The Witcher and Skyrim have better art direction. Though I suppose this could be a decent game, I might give it a shot.

Actually, eeewwwwwwwwww, no I won't - that's a JRPG! And it's incredibly console-y! WAH IT BURNS

Edit: well, maybe it's not a JRPG but the art style is very over the top like one. I hear it has co-op, so I might get 2 copies when it's a helluva lot cheaper. Maybe.

Dark souls hard? Tell me you jest. Now Ninja giaden black that was a hard game, and yet some of use beat it multiple times just to stack up our weapons to max level (Beam katana was a disappointment).

Personally I love the fact that demon souls captured how truly hopeless it would feel to actually fight a dragon or demon when all you have is a suit of armor, a sword, and a bow.

Two Slaanesh daemons on the first go...hmm I guess the fates have spoken emperors children here I come

this game looks fairly interesting, but I feel like the IGN review is stupidly misleading. I'll wait till the players actually give me their opinion before shelling out another 50 bucks.

However, the idea of "Lets make this motherfucker as hard as we can" sort of games usually end up being in my garbage bin after two weeks. I understand that you want to make this as realistic as possible in terms of "colossal monster vs you" sort of sense, but if I have to deal with the bullshit of "you walk in a room and die", "One hit, no matter how good your armor is, and your dead", and "No matter how good your weapon is, it still takes a thousand hits to kill the goblin", then I say fuck it.

However, Doom 1 on super hell difficultly takes the cake as being the hardest. Monsters literally spawn out of nowhere and attack you.

As a journalist, I can take nothing this obvious fanboy has written seriously. Not a single word. Seriously, I can take every point on that list and turn it in Skyrim's favor. Focus on single player? Winner: Skyrim. Etc.

Except for pricing. Then again, you get what you pay for

EDIT: And you really should not take IGN seriously, ever. It has nothing to do with objectivity, it is gaming's online version of Fox News.
