|BKA||I picked it up last night and played for a while. You guys weren't lying about the difficulty. But after strategizing I got through the first boss after dying 10 times first. Lol|

|srfrog||I used my coupon earlier in the month when it was on sale and just finished playing through my first time. Put in around 65 hours going to every area and killing every boss. It was a lot of fun but I got smoked almost everytime I was invaded. If you like Demon's Souls I don't see why you wouldn't like this one. I have a ton of games in the backlog but if I didn't, I would have no problem playing this again and maybe trying to better in the PvP.|

There honestly isn't that much of a story, its kinda cryptic and weird but the worlds, enemies and bosses are very entertaining. Its a magical land of death and confusion that you try to conquer.
If you do encounter any invaders (dark spirits) aka other players who try to kill you, don't worry about it when they obliterate you in 1 hit or repeatedly backstab you from 10 feet away.. its just trolls learning tricks / glitches of the game just to get good at killing other players. It may piss you off but best thing you can do is try to summon friendly players to protect you, hide behind them and hope they win. It will take at least 100-200 hours of play time before you will be able to compete with the experienced "dark spirit".

|jayvo2008||Ugh, I've heard so much about Dark Souls that I had to buy it. Don't know a thing about it other than it being a sequel to Demon's Soul. So I'm hoping its as good as I'm thinking and I hope playing Demon's Souls isn't really a requirement storywise....|

|Saboth||I picked this up around Christmas and I'm on my 3rd play through of it. I hardly ever play a game more than once, and never 3 times in a row. Get the High Res patch and a wired Xbox controller.|

Is this GFWL compatible?
edit- according to amazon it is. So i am assuming achievements, etc?
and whats up with the locked resolution? Does it not take advantage of pc hardware?

|xplicitone||Getting older with more responsibilities and time is more valuable, stinks. I made a list of 4 games I want to try to beat in February already. Ni No Kuni, Walking Dead, Prince of Persia, and Borderlands 2. I wish I had time to try Dark Souls!|

You have no idea how massive my backlog is. I have games spanning from the PS3, 360, Wii U, and of course the PC that I haven't touched yet. At least half my console games haven't been open yet. I wish I didn't work so I can play all day

just chiming in to say this is a great game, very atmospheric, moody, challenging, rewarding, etc.
multiplayer on pc does seem to suck (gfwl or lag or something makes only 1/5 multiplayer attempts work for me), but you definitely do not need a friend to beat the game, and the game provides you with your own computer buddies anyway (\o/ praise the sun)
fwiw, i also found it okay to play with just a mouse and keyboard, although i did also grow up playing descent 1 on a keyboard.... anyway, the scheme is WASD as movement, IJKL as camera control, O as "z-targeting" from ocarina of time (and yes, you can tap it to center the camera behind you), and UH as strong and weak attack.
also, the game is hard because it requires patience, not because it is cheap and there are gear-checks or some nonsense like that. you can youtube some videos of lvl 1 characters with no equipment beating late game bosses...
