And seriously, don't complain about the boss battles.
Other than the tutorial boss, I've NEVER EVER been killed by a boss in this game, and I've already gone through 6 of them. And heck, I even beat 1 boss that was supposedly too strong for my equipment (I was in an area where most people already had demon weapons and enchanted weaponry... I had a simple dagger and buckle) when I teamed up with a few people - funny thing was, I did most of the damage.
Oh, and let's not forget when I helped out 5 different people and killed the bosses SINGLE-HANDEDLY.
You know how you do that, kids? You plan ahead, you watch for patterns, and you back off when the risks are too high.
And ever since my first time my world was invaded (people can invade your world and try to kill you in order to get their body back... cuz if you die, you lose your body and stay in soul-form) and I was killed due to me being surprised and clearly outmatched (he was not only a good duelist, but had great equipment), I have yet to be killed by an invader since! 6 attempts of people trying to kill me while I was trying to grind in the game... not once did I ask for people to help me. Of those 6, I only got killed once, and that was the first time. The other 5, I handled them easily.
I've invaded different people's worlds 5 times. And out of all of them, I died only once. And that was by the hands of monsters, not them.
Does that make me l337? Does that make me pro? Does that make me "the sh*t"?
No. It makes me the smart guy who thought it was dumb that you were lugging around a huge shield against me when I had a dagger. It makes me the careful guy who watched his step, unlike you, who fell off a cliff trying to chase me. It makes me the guy who actually thinks before he acts, who stabbed you in the back when you decided to heal yourself in an open area.
Seriously dudes, Demon's Souls isn't that hard. It's medium-difficulty for me. I may not be your level or have all the best equipment like you do, but I can assure you I've survived longer in each stage than you, and I can assure you that you've died a lot more than you're willing to admit.
I've done more things in my original weak-armored outfit and blade and tiny shield than you've done with that dragon slaying spear and magic shield.
But hey, that's because I'm playing like how my character's supposed to play - dodge, run, kill, steal. How about you, little miss "I think I should be charging into enemy lines with my big @ss shield while there are assassins about."?
.........but Demon's Souls? AMAZING GAME. I love it. May not be difficult as hell, but I like it like that. It gives me a chance to take my time and enjoy the sights (watching bloodstains and reading messages on the floor).
