It's been rumoured Graces was coming to PS3 for a while now, but I'm glad it's confirmed. It's probably unlikely it'll get a worldwide release, but here's hoping! If not, I suppose I'll import. I do prefer playing games in my native language though. Not a surprise a new ones announced for PS3 either.

They need to stop with radiant mythology though. I can't speak for the second one (as I haven't played it), but the first was garbage. Mindless fetch quests through the same dungeons over and over again. Plus a lame story. Even if it was intended as a fan crossover game, it did it badly.

I got drunk once, but that was a long time ago, and it's gonna be my first and last.

Overall I don't drink due to health reasons. I'm glad I'm not the only one in this forum who doesn't drink. :P


We need a "people who don't get drunk" topic now.

What's worse than a hundred dead babies nailed to a tree? One dead baby nailed to a hundred trees. <-- the one joke that stuck with me, it's horrible. :(

That is horrible. But, actually, I think 100 dead babies is still worse.

Oh, and I have never been drunk because I don't drink. :P

I'm on  my first playthrough so I'm trying to get by with everything I find along the way, I'm trying to avoid guides as much as possible. Yesterday I killed the adjudicator, on the first 2 tries I was owned but on my third try I figured out a way to beat it without being touched, figuring this stuff out by yourself is really rewarding.
It's a fascinating game, yesterday I was entering 4-2 for the very first time, I had just beat the adjudicator and was messing around with my equipment, a BP invades and completely destroys me with a meatcleaver, I didn't even have time to react. I was raped in a matter of seconds.

That sucks. I always wanted to be invaded, though. I have now played the game for nearly 40 hours (probably just less than half in body form) and have not even once been invaded. Boo.

It completely depends on your ranged weapon.  Most of them are Dexterity based.  Sticky Compound Long Bow+5 is typically considered one of the best and that has an S in Dexterity.  You only really need 30 or so in total to use this weapon effectively for all of your standard and New Game+.

Ah yeah. I forgot about the stat bonuses some weapons are affected by. I have the Compound Bow at +2 right now. Not with Sticky. I haven't killed Flamelurker on this play yet so I can't upgrade anything fancy. Again but Dex is like, 14. So that may not help all that much anyway.

Armor doesn't mean shit in anything but PVP.  And even then, only the armor that resists magic is any help at all.  This game is all about dodging if you're melee, you aren't going to get anywhere in NG+ if you don't realize that.  So yeah, if you're having problems winning with Melee pick up a bow, it makes everything easy-peasy.  There are some enemies who will literally just stand there and let you shoot them if you're far enough away.

Does strength score contribute to ranged attack power? Because my dexterity is reaalllyyyy low.

No, closer to white. Believe it or not. I got close to PWWT on most worlds on my first play through. Once I max that out I'm gonna head back towards black after I kill off most of the bosses. Assuming I get that far...

I grabbed the Brushwood armor set from 1-1 which has the highest physical defence, but is ungodly heavy. I swapped from Garl Vinland's Dark Silver set (which is better for PvP--High magic resistance) to that. It has helped quite a bit, but it hinders my ability to roll which is a problem for some enemies and bosses. Especially the armor spider. But it made getting 1-hitted by Tower Knight all the more annoying. Especially seen it takes a huge amount of souls for me to level up.

I must say though, a lot of the bosses seem like they'd be easier if I was ranged or magic. Most of the bosses can only do damage to you if you're close to them. Unfortunately for me, being pure melee, I don't have a choice. But I'm thinking of ditching most of my armor when I fight bosses. If they're gonna 1-hit me anyway I might as well make myself be able to run and roll faster.

I finished my play through a week ago or so. I played Temple Knight with sword and board and, honestly, didn't have that much trouble with it.

New Game+, on the other hand, is hell. It is unbelievable hard. I beat Phalanx but got 1 hit killed by Tower Knight. I tried Armor Spider and I could roll quickly enough. I think I'm getting to the point of throwing the towel in. Being 1-hitted when I have a HUGE amount of health and the best defensive armor in the game is a bit of a bummer.

I played it a while back. Haven't in some time though. I really enjoyed it, but it's in desperate need of more maps.

I know most people are still lolFamitsu, but with most 40s I can remember them giving I understood the general thrust of why they did it...with this game, not so much. This just seems a lot like the same game I played 10 years ago, with some interface cleanup and laughably easy instead of incredibly frustrating.

Never give Famitsu scores much weighting. They're either extremely generous or paid for. I'll leave that up to the conspiracy theorists to determine.

My first time with the game was entirely offline, in an empty house at night.

I've been playing online and, honestly, I think the messages and phantoms really take away from the atmosphere of the game. I would prefer to have been feeling like I was all alone--more like a survival game. Mind you, I could always play offline, I suppose. But I'm sure I'd die even more often...
837  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Demon's Souls on: June 28, 2010, 06:40:01 PM
So I've made it to the boss in 1-1 on my third try, fought it and lost. It's supposed to be weak against fire but I used all the bombs before getting there and I'm using a temple knight. Still trying to figure out what I should do about that. 

I'm a Temple Knight too. I had saved up all the firebombs, unaware of the battle, and using all 10 I had made that fight easy.

I'm struggling to get through world 1-2 though. There's a big difficulty jump.

It looks terrific! I never got a chance to play the old Parasite Eve games, unfortunately.

That sounds stunning. I will definitely keep my eyes on it! Thanks for brining it to my attention!
