I am almost at the gargoyles I think. Only played the game for 1hr so far.
Do you guys have any idea about picking the pendant as a gift? There is rumours that you start your own covenant in the end if you don't join any other covenants?

I watched the gametrailers review of this, looks impressive.

By the sounds of it, you guys are going to be busy with this game for a while. Hurry up though, you dont have long till BF3/B:AC/UC3/Sky5 come out!

I gots a question.
When you first get the opportunity to join a covenant in that firelink shrine place and the npc asks if you want to join his covenant, the game asks you if you want to leave your current covenant. So my question is what is my current covenant. I am a thief so I don't have any affiliations as far as I know.

They have gone over the top with the difficulty, too early on - and they have done it lazily.

Instead of making it difficult one on one combat, that requires you to learn from trial and error, so you can eventually progress - they have just chucked in heaps of enemies, or made bosses attack heaps more frequently. It's stupid.

I wouldn't mind dying 1000 times if it were against something that outplays me, but I don't. I die from the hundred undead that attack me at once. Or the tough enemies that have no way to be stumbled and have what seems like an unending string of perfectly timed attacks.

I am not enjoying the game, although I can see how it is improved and possibly even better than Demons Souls.

I just feel they have gone over the top and in a bad way.

People who will get this without experiencing Demons Souls first, will want to return it immediately.



@fuchs - the covenants are the new tendencies. No one really has a clear idea of the difference, that I can find, but they change your experience somewhat dramatically..... reportedly.

so far, I think this game is actually easier than Demons Souls.
I just killed the gargoyles, and thats as far as ive gotten. Im sure it will get more difficult though.

The covenants require to you to complete special tasks to join them (some of them). You can be granted new weapons, spells etc from joining these covenants. There are trophies related to joining each covenant. Thats about as much as I know.

Also, Platinum will take a minimum of 2.5 playthroughs.

FUUUUUUUCK I put my controller down and accidentally pressed r1 and hit the 1st undead merchant. Then I proceeded to kill him as he was now aggressive toward me only to later find out you can actually calm these bastards down by atoning for your sins. Man why can you create multiple save files for this game, what were they thinking?

I am fucking loving this game. I hate to say it, but its better than Demon's Souls. The open world design works so damn well, and the boss fights/enemies have really improved. One of the best games this generation, without a doubt. More people should play it.

Im finding the game hard to put down. It's all im thinking about; where to go next, what items to upgrade...

I just arrived at Anor Londo, currently level 45 and 20 hours in.

I've beaten Taurus Demon, Gargoyles, Capra Demon, Moonlight Butterfly, Hydra, Gaping Dragon and I'm now up to Great Wolf Sir. I'm level 50.

Game to me still isn't better than Demons Souls, it's going to be tough for a game to ever leave that sort of impression on me again.

The game is admittedly getting more enjoyable/tolerable though.

Im at Anor Londo, fighting Smough & Ornstein (cunts). Level 56.

After which I will go back to Firelink to defeat the Four Kings, Stray Demon and Pinwheel, then advance the story again.

That old trick. I haven't farmed at all this playthrough.
Careful of farming too much. You're gonna want to summon people for Smough and Ornstein, and that'll be hard if your level is too high.

I defeated Ornstein and Smough last night. Im hitting up the return asylum, catacombs and new londo now.

I don't play online, hence never summon.
Good tip though.

I've figured out a way you, Michael, Tim and I can talk while playing dark souls. I'll talk to you about it tonight
