This game is $10 right now on the PSN store
it has the most fun weapons out of the whole series
go for it
>art style looks so shit
Fuck you nigga
The thing I liked about Demon's souls was that it had heavy weapons that actually felt like heavy weapons, Brandt or the DBS fucking knocked nerds the fuck away, not to mention they hit super hard.
I think you probably just think it looks bland. Unlike the DaS games the world in demons souls is essentially 'dead' so the washed out colors and stuff kinda fit the theme.
Anyway go ahead and get it for $10 you cant go wrong
I DBS'd some fag to death yesterday in 1-4, the first attempt at invading as well.
I think you'll have more chances to be invaded in the earlier areas though, and the invaders will be shitter scrapper twinks with baby's nail and poison cloud
Best Stage/Lore/Overall design in the Souls series.
Combat could use some work but pretty solid too.
My favorite Souls game of the 3 is Dark Souls, but this one has the best and most memorable areas of all.
>better than DaS1
Well, I was planning to give it another chance seeing how much it is loved in here.
Maybe I'll do that, to see if now I "get it".
I still prefer animu girls to western shit, so yeah, the style is shit.
its kawaii you fuck.
Demon's souls PvP is some of the most fun I've ever had. This is my character.
lvl 99~ female thief with miralda's armor. +5 fatal secret dagger in right hand for increased riposte/backstab damage. Parrying dagger in left hand for easy parries. Cloak constantly active (invisible to anyone outside 5m range).
invade people and watch them freak out as I cast plague cloud and poison clouds at them and pick them off one by one.
no bully anon.
>Demon's souls PvP is some of the most fun I've ever had
remember the times when you didn't need to hack in order to ruin people's playthroughs?
>you can't go wrong
I read that in his voice
And if the exact same game have had loli pantsu designs, you would have hated it, whats your point?
Just saying I've had this game on disc for years and if any of you faggots try to invade me on my ng++ in the swamp I will report you to From you piece of shits
please, I'm so lonely smurf accounts are the only way I get interaction
If you dislike a game because it has western style you're just as bad as people who don't like games because of "anime" artstyle
Why would you wear anything but fluted? If I'm knight mage or archer, I always wear fluted.
I feel bad becuase I bought a russian key of DaS 2 thinking it might have been a good game. it wasn't, and I didn' finish it because I got sick of it halfway through it
yes I'ma faggot for judging a game I didn't finish, but seriously it's the most boring crap I have ever played, also
>godawful online system
DeS is the only one in the series really worth playing, plus it has best waifu.
>tfw no ps3, and I couldn't hire it out when going to my mates place who had a ps3
Purple flame shield carried my scrub ass through flamelurker.
>buy demons souls after playing dark souls and liking it
>holy fucking shit this is pretty cool
>get chaos weapon
>fast rolling with brushwood armor, dbs, chaos weapon, a shit ton of hp and fatigue, and not even at the old 'pvp level'
Jesus christ this game must have been nuts back before it's online died.
This is why I'm dead set on having a PS4 by the time Bloodborne comes out, right at release will be the best possible time to experience it, I just wish I could've done so with Demon's Souls.
Indulge in too much of the same thing and you will eventually get sick of it. You gotta mix it up anon.
Didn't DeS go up for free for PS+ a while ago? I think I heard recently that it may be up again soon.
I'm doing my third playthrough of DaS right now and I've been itching to get my hands on DeS for a while.
If it's not coming back to PS+ for free anytime soon I may just buy it now.
I'm surprised that the only thing that bothers me about this picture is the stupidly over-sized pommel on that sword.
>swinging a katana edge on right down onto a straight sword that's been braced up
I'm not some kind of turbonerd that thinks katanas are the best fucking blade ever because 4000 folds of steel or whatever shit, but this is fucking stupid.
Bumping thread with obvious answer.
Of. Fucking. Course.
Best game in the series. Best waifu too.
Googled it and apparently Japanese PS+ got DeS for free when Bloodborne was announced.
Fuck it, I'm gonna buy it. I'll be mildly disappointed if it goes free on PS+ soon though.
I'll assume the lack of responses means I'm the only one aware of this glitch.
You guys didn't think those players at level 999999 that you can see at the nexus got there legit, did you?
I have no idea. I got a PS+ subscription from my brother as a birthday present a year ago, and I don't use it for much.
I check it about every two weeks, and each time I'm disappointed with what's offered.
The only really nice thing about PS+ is cloud storage. That's crazy convenient.
Just buy it from the PSN like normal. Worst comes to worst, when your PS+ cancels, you may have to delete and re-download the game, but you should still have your saves and everything.
That's the thing though. You can't buy it if you already downloaded the free copy from PS+, it just says you already have the game. It's really fucking stupid when you want the game while you have PS+, game goes on sale and you're planning on cancelling PS+. Does anyone have a work around this?
Seems like a pretty jewish way to keep you subscribed.
I guess the only thing you can do is wait it out and hope it's still on sale next month.
If you have any other accounts on your system you may want to resort to buying it using another account right now, and downloading it through that account when your PS+ expires.
Oh look at that. A DeS thread.
I just bought a BC PS3 and DeS yesterday too.
Game is pretty great, and it has the best waifu of the series. Think I might prefer DaS to it but I'm still not very far into DeS yet so we'll see. I have to admit this world tendency mechanic is rather obnoxious though. Started playing offline today after reading up on it a bit.
Rolling a str knight build with fluted armor, sword and board. Fuck magic, I'm still wrecking shit. Managed to take out Vanguard in the tutorial too
after a few resets.
> tfw posting in a Catherine thread
> tfw posting in a Hotline Miami thread
> tfw posting in a Demon's Souls
Almost zero shitposting. Feels good.
>tfw you finally beat world 3 and can finally move on
Fuck man, I was starting to get really annoyed with that place
Fuck all those BP Mind Flayers
Fuck the man eaters
Fuck the old monk unskippable cutscene
Also what are some good weps for a sorceror?
What should I be putting my points into? I've put it into magic and intelligence and a bit of dex.
Can you be any gayer? you're not the world's authority on good shit faggot. Wah someone likes a game I don't! Wah! I like DeS over the other two but thats me other have their own opinions too nigger. DeS DS crowd always defensive.
>tfw you missed out on the heyday of DeS
Transition to a Blue Blood sword build. It's easy from a mage build.
You can also go hyper mage. Use a Kris blade to increase your default magic damage until you get a Morion Blade and the ring that increases your sorcery output/ damage output.
Get your HP below 30 percent and start one shotting most things.
Well I didn't mention VIT and END because I thought that was granted already, I mean, offensively, what stats should I put my points into?
And I have that sword that the Oscar dude has since it does magic damage and I'm a sorceress
I spam miracles at them but they take so much punishment ;-;
It's more of an annoyance than anything
Ah I haven't found those weapons yet.
Get a load of this troll. You only need about 10 vitality. Dodging is better than tanking 100% of the time. Put your stock into offensive skills.
He just wanted to protect his waifu. Can you fault him for that? Wouldn't you do the same?
>I spam miracles at them but they take so much punishment
You're doing it wrong, then. The magic jamming miracle completely neuters mind flayers, since all their attacks are magic. You can just run up to them and beat them to death with your fists as they fruitlessly ring their bells like idiots.
Why would you ever, just ever, consider Dark Souls 2 to be better than Dark Souls 1?
Let's not count the new features of the game, but let's talk about it in general.
I've been playing DS2 and was really disappointed with the ending, and the story in general, I think everything was pretty hacked on and poorly planned out with the whole "forgetting" aspect, but I don't think this game at all is better than the first, why do you?
I felt bad for killing them
And the music that was playing
I never thought of doing that, but I was trying to go from the boss all the way to the girl you should kill and there were about 4 giants all over the place.
I couldn't stop crying, anon.
>You will never touch the demon inside her
>Tfw you missed out on DeS online
>Tfw you missed out on DaS1 online
>Tfw when you get to experience the worst online souls game
Probably people with horrible diseases that were outcast by society (
lepers). I'm pretty sure they didn't want to go there initially. Although they probably want to stay now because of Astraea.
i just started playing this and just found out from reading this thread that it's not a good idea to go in level order?
I did 1-1, 1-2, and then all of 2, and now I'm going back to 1-3.
Also having this guy's >>258465938 dilemma.
You aren't looking hard enough. You can fucking buy armour from the vendors if you're that blind.
Remember, go for the armour that gives the most protection while still letting you fast roll. Never pick an armour over a weapon if there is a weight issue.
By all means, do 2 early. It's very easy and you unlock the master smith. People do the worlds in different orders primarily because of the equipment they want. I go to skeleton world early because I can't live without the compound longbow that you find in the first section.
>mfw I just realized that the kings son probably died a few times during his journey, and it's why he ends in the Nexus
he "die" for real though later on? I don't get it, I mean the Nexus is supposed to be a placeholder for people that die, why didn't he come back to life?
One thing I should say to help you out some if you didn't already know, but in order to have PWWT in all the stages, make sure you lose your human form in the nexus only. In other words, as soon as you become human, teleport to the Nexus and jump off a cliff.
Only do the worlds in soul form.
Wouldn't it be better to not be in pure white world tendency as the game gives better drops and such things if you play with black tendency? Or is it not really a worthwhile trade off?
Killing bosses makes it turn whiter
Dieing while in human form turns it blacker
White world tendency reduces drop rates but enemies are a bit easier
Black world tendency makes stronger enemies but better drops
And there are certain events, NPCs, and enemies that only occur on Pure White or Pure Black
DeS has special and fun weapons, but after you used all, like, 4 of them you're left with the basics. They weapon pool is very small and often over-looked by tryhards. Not saying you're one, just a general observation.
Killing bosses and BPs makes it whiter. Dieing in human form outside of the nexus makes it weaker. Pure white WT makes enemies weaker and unlocks certain areas on maps that have great loot. It also makes loot drops shitty. Pure black WT makes enemies stronger, increases rare loot drops, unlocks the same areas as white tendancy, causes more BPs to form, and causes the ancient demon to spawn in that level.
Ostrava hadn't died. Only the player characters and the Crestfallen Warrior have a Nexial Binding. The others are just travelers who found the Nexus or were brought there by players.
Wut, are you sure about that?
It takes the same ammount of hits to kill enemies when in human or soul form for me
I'd prefer not to die in 1 hit to almost everything
i don't wanna waste a ring slot
Does anyone else just think Tom from Toonami whenever they scroll by the cover art of this game?
The only time you need to help him out is after world 1-3.
When you save him from that laughing fuck and those two red eyed knights, he'll go hide in a corner.
Make sure you kill all the enemies up to the boss door before you fight the boss.
Other than that, you don't have to babysit him anymore because he'll finish his job in world 1-4.
You shouldn't hate him too much, he has it hard ; ;
>Hey anon, why don't you let me out? We can slay demons together.
No. Have you not read any guides? Kill him the first time after you help him. Just backstab him to death and take his key.
BTW, has anyone else noticed that after you type the capcha, it sometimes disappears and you have to type it again?
The only useful rings in the game are the ring of avarice, cling, cat's, eternal warrior's, fragrant, regenerator's, devout prayer, magical nature, sincere prayer, and great/herculean strength
Pick the cling ring and one of these random ones. Having two without cling isn't useful at all unless you're doing nothing but pvp
Why would you ever want to use those unless you feel like living on the edge?
Just kill every enemy in sight or run away from them. You need the souls, you don't need to hide and backstab
Thief ring is useful because you will almost always see enemies first and you will not get tons of agro from the flying manta rays and moscitoes. It's also useful for cheesing.
If you don't know how OP the clever rat's ring is, you simply haven't used it. Hyper mode is insane.
Not him but the thiefs ring is incredibly useful in pvp if you build around it on one of my characters I used it with the cloak spell and I was like the predator picking off phantoms and hosts and backing off and being unable to be found.
If I remember right with thiefs ring it was an 8 step distance to be invisible and with cloak spell it was 4 step distance.
Spears are the best melee weapon. I use them on glass cannon builds and never get hit. Also they don't make you step forward while doing a defensive stab. Very useful on those high towers in Latria.
No, I get that, I know what a scraping spear is and what it does, I just don't understand the joke this is trying to convey.
The third panel has the guy readying his spear, which I assume he's readying for battle to fight the guy, which ends the joke, but the guy hasn't passed the line, or brought any blue phantoms.
>mfw invading at SL14 with a Scraping Spear and Babby's Nail
I made it specifically to invade DSP, but I never got in before he unplugged his ethernet in rage
I still got some use out of it
He's not readying his spear, he just has it out.
The pose doesn't mean anything, it's like a closeup to the guy's face, except that's hard to do.
It would be awkward to just end it on the second panel.
You can use CE for DaS PC. Just stay offline, or you're a dick.
There's probably a way to do it on DeS, though. At the very least, you can use the Stockpile Thomas glitch to just clone every consumable you have (including boss souls).
World owner thinks he can't pass the line because he doesn't have blue phantoms, like the game will physically not let him pass it. Third panel is red phantom being in a state of "you've gotta be kidding me" shock.
> you're so in love with a game you think CE means the beautiful Collector's Edition
> /dsg/ is so plebeian it hasn't even played it for the most part
> CE to them is cheat engine
In DeS, the only real cheats are the bloodstain multiplier glitch (patched, plus it didn't work on all games to begin with) and the item duplication glitch. I never used either. Just how practical is the item dupe glitch if you want to get super powerful fast and early?
I took like 50 hours and that was with a guide. I think a lot of that time involved me being idle while I was reading it, though.
How long does a blind first playthrough normally take?
>Using a guide for the first playthrough
With Stockpile Thomas's, infinite souls/upgrade materials/grass/spice after you get some shards of archstone.
Of course, you have to get at least one of each item to be duped. But if you know what you're doing, you could be finished anywhere between 1-5 hours, depending on where the stuff you want is.
The truth has been spoken
Been in PBWT for ages now.
Could have sworn the general consensus was that boosted luck was actually worse for farming it since you were more likely to get trash like chunks and soul remnants.
4chan culture in general is pretty contrarion for the sake of being different so i'm finding it hard to believe the other soul games are shit compared to DeS.
I just finished DeS today and was considering purchasing DS +DS2 next week, anyone got a reason why I shouldnt?
It is most definitely worth it. If you do not buy it then you are a faggot.
TLOU is not a movie. You rarely have cutscenes that last more than a minute. Uncharted is similar. Neither game is cutscene heavy, but people who were butt blasted over their exclusivity say it to themselves so they don't feel bad about not being able to play them.
Wish I was there when it came out but going from Dark Souls 1 to demons was great.
God I fell so hard for all the hype of ds2, I trusted them so blindly after these two gems, no one is beyond being filthy fucking jews.
Fuck dark souls 2 for being cheap and defiling the memorys of dark souls 1.
>all these people who haven't played demon's souls
I bought a ps3 and played on release. I regret nothing. The demon's souls threads back then were the best /v/idya threads ever. Buy it now if you can. The pvp/co-op get revived during a sale but the game is worth playing even single player.
The body of a katana is made of cold, non tempered iron that's easily shaped and bent. Only the edge where the sharp of the blade resides contains any actual steel.
You can basically destroy a katana by bending it with your knee like a stick.
