It's true. Played for about a half hour...won't be able to really give it time until after the wife goes to bed.

Love it so far. Phone Post

Start summoning players to help as soon as you can. It's vital in your first run. Pay attention to where the other players go and how they approach enemies.
Make sure your wife is asleep, so she doesn't see your beta behaviour as you hold your head in your hands after dying for the sixteenth straight time.

Thanks for the tips. So I take it I should drop the sixty bucks and reup my xbox live, huh?

Kid at gamestop was shocked when I asked for a copy of the 360 version. Thought it was cool that someone who'd never played the original was buying the sequel. Phone Post

I'd say it's necessary for this game, no doubt.
As for jumping without having played Demon's Souls? That's a challenge and a half friend. Demon's Souls has been described as "cruel", and Dark Souls is suppose to be even more punishing.
Another vital tip: unless something is chasing you, do not run. At all. You will either fall off a cliff or stumble into a one hit kill.

I was just guilty of this, but the difficulty does get too much press. The real meat of Demon's Souls (and I can assume Dark Souls, seeing as it uses the same game engine, with tweaks) is the combat and atmosphere. When you start to roll with it, few games are as solid or rewarding.

Do you prefer FPSs or 3rd person RPGs?
What appeals to you more: playing a shorter, less open world Borderlands, or playing Ocarina of Time with one hand?
(That sounds really pessimistic, but I'm not hating. Just go with it.)

Rage seem like the same 'ol same 'ol if you ask me. I remember reading about it last year in GameInformer and thinking "what's all the fuss about". First person, post apocalyptic, open world RPG....never played one those before...

But, jerkiness aside, let me know how it plays when you get your hands on it. Phone Post

I haven't played it myself, but from what I've heard and read, you'll be done with Rage by the end of the week. If you like RPGs you should definitely give Dark Souls a try. It's the sequel to one of the best (critically acclaimed, not just by me) RPGs this gen.

More I read about this game the more enticing it sounds. I haven't played the first one though. This game just sounds too good to pass up.

It is. Killed the first boss after dying only four times...felt like an accomplishment to me. Got real bold after that and got killed several time by those pesky animated skeletons. Phone Post

Is there a lot of having to get the gear and whatever else you accumulated over time over again when you die? I heard that the save points were fairly spaced out?

i wanted to get a medievel type game and decided to hold out for Skyrim over DArk souls in fear of having my PS3 system fly out the window

This. But absolutely a full fledged RPG...though not dialogue heavy like Mass Effect or even the Final Fantasy series. It's not a choose your own adventure as much as a huge world that simply wants you dead. Phone Post
