Demon Souls & Dark Souls, just got a PS3, questions.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just got a new PS3 Slim for 190$, 4 controllers(Wireless, Dualshock), HDMI Cable, Charger Cable, and Uncharted 3 came with it. 120GB HDD. I'd say one hell of an awesome deal. I got it for Blu-Ray and a few gems I wanted to play.

So I hooked up the Internet to it and was downloading Demos of Uncharted, Heavy Rain, God of War, and a few other games I was interested in.

Sad to say, FPS on consoles still suck I find...I was hoping that had changed, but I guess not. Just cannot control well. I will surely be getting Uncharted 1 & 2, not just based off the demo, but the fact that it is written by the writer who wrote the Legacy of Kain series...she gets an instant gold award from me. Blind fanboyism, I know. What I really find odd so far is how many games well, look worse than some PS2 games...despite being 720p on a new Panasonic ST30 50'', and setup correctly. I know console games are bad compared to PC, but some of these look like 2004 games. I played the Killzone 3 demo and holy ****, I could swear the first one looked better.

I am massively interested in Demon Souls / Dark Souls. As I love the gameplay style and just in general. I just need to know this for sure; is it the type of game that is pointlessly hard, or hard for a reason? I really hate games that just cheap the living **** out of you like no tomorrow, then people just say "Well it's a hard game, you just suck." It's not one of those, right? I know the difficulty is legendary though, hence why I ask.

Also, there was some noticble tearing in games. I can live with jaggies, sucks, but I can...however tearing is a no-go. I was also Interested in Bayonetta since it's part of the DMC series, in a sense, and I love those games.

However I hear non-stop technical issues about alot of the games I'm interested. Low-frame rates, worse textures than the X360, tearing, ectera. Can anyone fill me in?

The God of War CoO collection thing surprised me though, 1080p, AA, 60FPS, very smooth. WIsh all PS3 games were like that...oh well.

Thanks.

*Also, is it worth it to get both Demon Souls & Dark SOuls, or should I just go for the latest?

** Was also reading about this Eagle Eye Business, there some FPS I'd like to play on th console, but can't deal with the ****ty controller aiming.

Was also thinking bout FF13...but wanted version wit hthe Japanese VA & English Subs.

This correct?

Very interested in Star Ocean 4 as well, Resonance of Fate...hmm.

I own both Demon's Souls and Dark souls ... They are both amazing games. Dark Souls definitely RPG of the YEAR for me. And yeah both games might be very hard at some points and it have some cheap tricks that just kills you instantly. IMO Demons Soul is harder then the new one in the series because of the Nexus system. It literally wants you to throw out the bluray disc, but the feeling you get when you defeat that boss is so damn satisfying that it makes it up to his difficulty.

To answer your question I would skip Demon's Souls if you are a aggressive person tongue.gif

Ok, decided to get Demon Souls as it's cheaper, and I can see if I like it first.

Then Resonance of Fate, Star Ocean 4, Uncharted 1 & 2 combo, all very cheap, so I feel good about the purchases. Keep me busy for awhile.

If you get stuck in Demons or Dark souls I can help you out (assuming I'm around at the time).

Dark Souls looks better graphically, and is a lot easier/noob friendly. At least it seems that way to me, but I'd already played Demons Souls a ton before it came out, so can't say for sure how a new gamer would see it.

I know it's not, but it is in a way also. Gameplay style, the artistic theme, the guy who made it also made Devil May Cry. So I feel it as part of the DMC series.
