He's dead, Jim.

Now, not only did I bother to finish Demon's Souls, but I bothered to pass it on the unlocked harder difficulty immediately afterward. Why?! A friend justifiably noted that I "can't really say that I didn't enjoy it," but the emotions behind the second playthrough were weird; like I had "killed the game" but the only way to "twist the knife" was to pass it on "Hard." Don't tell me about a higher difficulty, if it exists. Just let me be done.


  1. You are a stronger man than I! I was determined to push my way through. But after getting my ass handed to me time and time again, after having fought through a long and strenuous dungeon... over and over. I finally gave in and decided I had had enough. Demon's Souls owns my soul. I can't say I didn't have fun. But when fun becomes punishment, that's where I had to draw the line. I'd love to hear about any PVP experiences you may have had.

  2. I'll mention more about PvP once the review gets going, but I had quite a few of them. People liked invading as black phantoms, and I only lost a tiny few of them.
