Metroid Prime is more about exploration while Dark Souls focuses on experimentation.

i've definitely jumped off cliffs looking for secret paths

Most of the deaths can be avoided by being careful.

But you'd probably rage over
Code:
the two silver knight archers in Anor Lando
so it's probably best to stay away.

those first two had me scratching my head for a minute. eventually i
Code:
loaded up my quiver with poison arrows and sniped 'em to death
the absolute most tricky part for me was the tomb of giants.

Dark Souls Prepare to Die: How to Access the New Areas (for RAY!)

So much to do. ~.~

I remember I left the last save of my game at the beginning of a new game+ but I've been thinking in doing a brand new character.

same here i got to new game plus+ and shortly after switched over to KoA. i always start as a wanderer in souls games i was thinking of trying something new next time around when the dlc drops. i wanna try being a tank like class but i really like being able to roll without the thud like feeling with heavy armor i'm totally open for suggestions on builds.

Ouch. Lost 20000 souls today, I really hate sewer levels.

Code:
I killed the Capra Demon, and then lost 14000 fighting the giant rat. Then I stupidly fell off the cliffs around Firelink Shrine making my way back.
I cleared out most of Depths, only to get cursed by those mist-breathing amphibian things, and then cursed again trying to get back the 6000 souls I lost.

I enjoy other people experiences with Dark Souls just as much as my own.
I stopped for a moment in Duke's Archives because my cousin took his coppy he lended me but now I bought the game for my own on an awesome promotion from Play-Asia. Can't wait to get back to it.

DBP, did you fight the "curse frog" inside that big tree on the way (Great Hollow) on the way to Ash Lake ?
So many of those things come at once that if you hesitate for just a moment you're pretty much screwed.

I haven't got there yet, I just finished Blighttown. That was an absolute hell-hole, not so much for the combat difficulty, but the constant tension of having to make sure you move very carefully everywhere. The boss was surprisingly easy once I summoned Mildred.

I'll be better prepared next time I get cursed. I didn't have any of the items to remove curses, and I had to trek all the way out of the Depths back to the Undead Burg, but I'm well stocked now.

Valley of Defilement IMO is worse. You can barely move and see where you're going, the entire place is a big nasty mess and the more you advance the dirtier and trickier it gets if you are not careful.

It seriously made me feel nauseous the first time I get there.

the valley of defilement made me feel like i needed to take leaps of faith off cliffs to progress. the paths were less hidden in blight town. or maybe cause i was coming off demons souls right into dark souls i was a little more prepared but i think it also made me jump off cliffs looking for things that weren't there. i think the swamp in demon souls is way more terrifying than that the one in dark souls. i'm just glad there aren't olfactory senses built into games cause the thought of walking through raw sewage in the plague fields is nauseating.

So is Dark Souls supposed to be an action game like DMC, Bayo, or Ninja Gaiden? Or is it more of a customization heavy RPG where most of the challenge is figuring out a strategy/trial and error? I'm still confused what the game's about or what it's best compared to.
