Polynaut Souls: Demon's Souls & Dark Souls discussion.
Given that we have a few fans of the games on the forum, and that the weekend thread received three separate strands of discussion, I thought it would be neat to create a thread! Herein we can chat about favourite stuff, moments and experiences, the lore and perhaps help those folks out who have either recently started or tempted to delve in.
Satellite to the above, a few pieces of interest...
DARK SOULS: PREPARE TO DIE EDITION..
.. launches as a disc version in Europe on Friday October 26th. If anyone from distant shores wishes to buy it, rather than the DLC offered elsewhere, Zavvi are charging £23.95 [$38.65] for the game, with worldwide delivery coming in at just 99p [$1.59] extra. PS3 is expected to be Multi-Region, as to whether the 360 version will be is unknown, but on your own head be it either way.
For UK purchasers Amazon.co.uk currently have the best price of £20 [October 7th]. if you've yet to order this is the lowest price the title has been and may well rise again as it has before. PS3 here .. 360 here.
DARK SOULS LORE..
For long time Dark Souls nerds may i draw your attention to the EpicNameBro Youtube videos where he goes into depth on the lore of the game. My favourite is the work on the timeline...
A new vid went up a few days back, combining that with that learned in the Prepare To Die DLC. No mahoosive spoilers beyond what's been seen in the artbook, combined with musings learned from the new content, but if you're worried i'd say shy away. It is a definite no-no for Dark Souls players who haven't at least gone past a certain point in the original title or experienced the ending. Here is the new stuff...
A FEW SOULS PIECES I'VE WRITTEN FOR THE FORUM..
E3 Dreaming: Demon's Souls 2 Vs Dark Souls 2. An essay pertaining to what might happen if From Software decided to do a sequel to Dark Souls at the same time as Sony working on a sequel to Demon's Souls [Sony owning the I.P.]
Attention To Detail that remained Unseen - Until Now [Dark Souls] - A piece regarding the PC mod which removed the helmets of the NPCs, revealling fully formed characters underneath.
Anyway, let's chat us some, yes?! :)
A few conversation pieces above, but the floor is open to all!
And here's hoping our Paddy is still bursting with enthusiasm from his foray into Demon's Souls. :)
UPDATE: MONDAY OCTOBER 8TH.
DARK SOULS HELP, ADVICE, HINTS & TIPS..
EpicNameBro has begun a daily Let's Play of Dark Souls [see above], going into detail about playstyle, stats, moves and discoveries. If you've not played either of the Souls games it's a great introduction, but even if you have you may discover stuff that you didn't know or quite grasp. What I'm saying is, I found new discoveries in there, so you may do too!.
Much of it goes for both Demon's Souls as well as Dark Souls, so it's worth a gawp for the likes of our Paddy :D
Plus if you haven't played the games and want an idea of what they are about, it's an ace idea into the nuance that makes the game so ace. :)
