I’ve been intermittently playing Demon’s Souls for the last 3 years, back on it again now. I love it, looks beautiful, the level designs are so detailed and the world feels so gloomy and hopeless. Bit like Brexit really. It is infuriating though, particularly the world with the skeletons and the ghosts, absolutely fucking merciless and despite the hours I’ve spent fighting them it still feels 50/50 against every one I come up against. It’s why I stop playing for long periods as it’s so frustrating but I always go back eventually.
I actually own DS1 and DS2 but don’t wanna play them until I’ve clocked Demon’s Souls (probably will never happen). Am sad they’ve deactivated the online features on it now, perhaps they’ll remaster it for PS4 next year in which case I’m all over it.
