From what I saw Bluepoint did a good job with SOTC, but it's still a surprise to see them doing this game instead of From Software.

I really hope they extend on this game though and add more bosses / worlds - for people who know it inside out and the best order to approach things, this will be a really short game, so I hope it's not a 1 for 1 remake. It will be nice to finally fight Flamelurker on 60FPS too.

I hope it's a one for one unless they create some of the left out content. Quite a few interesting monster models not used be fun to see them in this project. Also they better fix the magic imbalance.

I'm in but Sekiro beat me to submission and I'm not sure I can stomach getting my arse handed to me without an out. I was stressed out at work at the time though so that definitely contributed to the rage quitting.

Looking forward to the Ghost of Tiramisu getting me back into swords again. Lightsabers don't count.

I played Demons Early enough to have some PVP while it was still hot - scraping spear MUST be changed.

Played it bit back in the day, but as before I knew what Souls games were about. Thought I was just terrible and didn't know how to navigate the worlds. Since then I've beaten all the FromSoftware games so keen to give it another crack.

Kinda fun/Broken game

You could farm health

Magic was OP

The white/dark system was nasty at some points,

Dex build was...well you had to HOPE to get some drops or else you couldnt max out weapons.

Anybody else played this yet? I'm 30 something hours in with 4 bosses to go. Awesome game, looks next gen but they have added some quality of life improvements for an old game. I never played this back in the day with DS3 being my first full one. Coming late to the party I couldn't get into last gen looking games without the nostalgia, although would love another remake.

There are a few barriers but seems like it is easy to beat than other souls games once you discover the tricks / strategies.

Finished now. Amazing, true next gen visuals and music with some retro mechanics and pain thrown in for “fun”. Beat the final boss with the giant two hander to flex (and because I kept dying with sword and board).

The difficulty in DeS was always through traversal of the areas, not so much the bosses. In the original game, and especially since this was the first in the series, things were a real pain in the ass back then. I was a little disappointed that they didn't modernise some of the fights. 2-1, 2-2 and 4-4 were definitely a lot harder in the original. Maneater was surprisingly the "hardest" one for me this time around. So it's a little weird.

Did you use the Claymore? One of the best weapons in the game even compared to boss ones, considering how early you can get it too.

Just started this today, never played any of the Dark Souls or Demon Souls and had a half assed attempt at Bloodborne but couldn't be f***ed trying to learn the game.

Given the lockdown, I'm going to give this a good go and actually try learn it.
