At the E3 Dark Souls booth, it appears you can equip everything below including a shield with similar characteristic to the armor.

Which lead me to believe the gift you get from completing the ruins will be those equipment and gears on the front page of preparetodie.com and in the video.

Been watching the streams of the folks in Japan that bought from stores that broke street date, and damn it looks fantastic.
Dunno if there's a thief's ring equivalent in this game yet but enemy AI and mobs are relentless buggers that will run/crawl/climb ladders in order to get to you.

People that broke the street date are actuallu set up for an impossible challenge. It was quite funny the devs did that. "Piracy? Tsk tsk, here's what for".

A level 145 (max level) enemy with 1900 HP.

Oh, and I don't even know why people imported the game. Not even going to be a month until it's released in the US. In a language you can understand. In hindsight I think being unable to play online with other players in your region really dampens the fun.

10 bucks its highish level and the idiot in the gameplay video is using it without the strength requirement...

All the dialogue in the game is spoken english in the Japanese version and menus aren't that hard to figure out. Also, I don't recall any of the streamers I followed running into invading devs. Perhaps there were too many units that went out :V

I, for one, like the idea of being able to play with my buddies in Europe or asia. Segregating the game by region sucks, but what're you gonna do?

Really? Ah, too many imports made me think otherwise. Also there is no invading devs. There is a monster in a game that will kill you if you pirate the game.

Eh, what I'm going to do? Absolutely nothing. My opinion has shit against you, and vice versa. Speaking subjectively and all that.

Dark Souls is not restricted to regions as Demon's Souls was. Someone that imported a JP copy can still play with friends in the US or EU.

The devs sent out max stats invaders to punish gamers with early/leak copies but due to online freezing issues, From Software took online down temporarily. They released a patch early today 1.02 that fix the freezing.

So at the moment everyone's back online and there are no max stats invaders (anymore) due to the JP official release date passing.

Ah, so they did send out max level invaders? First time I heard that. And here I thought I was being misinterpreted. From what I read there were monsters instead of invaders.

Though hearing it isn't region locked is great news. Next is cross platforming!

By the way, any news on the convenant system?

Game of the year all years.

I want to fight the max stat invader. It would be like a super extra boss battle or something.

This game delivered on the marketing slogan. I'm only 6 hours into the game and can't remember how many times I've died. It wasn't just carelessness The enemy AI this time around is both inspiring and terrifying.
Inspiring: knocking an enemy off from higher ground and instead of getting stuck he runs to a ladder, scales it, and gets back to me.
Terrifying: when an enemy gets in a quick hit and proceeds to roll around behind me for the followup. Oh, with the right shield they will parry.

As for region restriction, word is the Japanese gamers have created a low level thief build for the Forest Hunter covenant. This is so they can rape any westerners from progressing through the dark forest.

My first 3 hours consist of me dying over 40 times doing suicidal runs through the underground catacombs. But it was all worth it when I obtained Nito's sword. Of course my stats are still too low to even use it.

I was exploring, Sonic the hedgehog style. No armor, no shield, no weapons; just running and dodging.

That reminds me of some horrible grinding for 150+ hours that I did just to get atleast 10% through an RPG.... Determination is such a time-waster....

Do I need to play Demons before getting this?
Is this harder than Ninja Gaiden II for X360?
Is this game moved by trial n error like Demon's?

I don't think you need to play Demon's Soul. Just get this game if you want.

And it's a kind of hard that's different than Ninja Gaiden. It's less frustrating (actually, it's not), and most of the time, you can always say it's your own fault that lead to your death instead of the game.

Actually, with bonfires soul grinding is a little easier. You'd think regenerating enemies would be a problem but they are exactly what you need. In DeS you'd have to warp back to the nexus each time but here you just need to sit by the fire then leave.

>Do I need to play Demons before getting this?
Nope. If you find yourself liking DaS then give it a try, too.
>Is this harder than Ninja Gaiden II for X360?
Like Duo mentioned it's a different kinda hard. I usually find myself dying out of carelessness or impatience, but it really depends on your play style.
>Is this game moved by trial n error like Demon's?
I wouldn't say "trial and error", but it is a learning experience. You don't necessarily have to die to learn - you could be at the jaws of death, succeed, and find yourself evaluating why you got in the situation.

Ninja gaiden is a diffrent hard, hard as in the mobs are super cheap and love to react to your button pressing.

I agree with most people, it's a different kinda hard. Ninja Gaiden is a fast paced action game, much faster than Dark or Demon's Souls.

Hey, Ryu Hayabusa has no stamina bar to speak of... can you imagine him in the world of Dark Souls or Demon's Souls. He would literally OWN, not only by the fact that he never get's tired or out of breath, but also because he's so much faster. By the time your Dark or Demon's souls character has slashed a boss monster 2 times, Ryu would would have already completed 9-hit slash combo with his Katana.

Been playing the game too. Uploading some videos of Sorceror gameplay. Probably not the best starting class. Anyone else using a mage?
