Which was the toughest boss fight?

 

NG+ my a*s. Just when you think you have it all hunky dory, the game drop kicks your balls to high heaven. I have 60k souls and to utilize all of them I have to finish off Phalanx in one go (or not die twice in a row). Are you frikking kidding me? :huh:

 

NG+ .. you gotta be kidding me..its exhausting and I don't feel like playing anything else atm too! Just let the feeling of victory keep you smiling for a while!

 

The toughest had to be flamelurker for me.. I didn't have any magic and i was getting whooped !!

 

Just to prepare for that fight, I levelled up myself like crazy.. full on preparation :P not to mention all those hours dying!

 

The levels of 5-1 and 5-2 were the most tough... plague, disease.. falling off ledges.... crazy crazy...

 

I got my a*s whooped in 1-4 as well... died so many times just trying to reach the blue dragon, a bit of impatience at times :lol:

 

All in all... Great great game...

 

Personally.. my GOTY, haven't played anything thats better than this year!

Flamelurker was certainly frantic - there was a lot of running around. Vinland was toughest just because I died so many times - all my arrows were used up, I was down to my last spice, and the bugger casts Heal on himself. It was poetic - he died with my last reserve of mana (firestorm FTW). And then the worst happened - I caught the plague, and just when I started coming back from the Maiden - it killed me! Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaage.

 

Old Monk also was tough - lot of running frantic running and dodging - because of the tight space. Once again firestorm saves the day. I've seen God's Wrath and Firestorm in action and I think Firestorm is better - it knocks enemies back.

 

This is one of the best console games ever. Not playing it is a shame.

:wOOtjumpy:

 

Dude - go finish 5-2, it will be cakewalk with your bow. Except the part where you cannot run, or roll, or dodge, or when the BP can do all that and carries a humongous Meat Cleaver.

 

I think the scariest moment I faced was right after I finished off the penetrator. I killed a couple of guards and turned and saw three black phantoms right in front. THREE! And each had special armour, weapons, and one of them cast firestorm! :wOOtjumpy: Complete panic moment.

I had hell of time with the maneater boss!!! No bother troubled me as much as The Maneater boss!!! Eventually i had to do something cheap to defeat it :bigyellowgrin:

 

 

 

Stood outside the white portal, got my health below 30%, equipped the ring that does double damage when health is lower than 30%. And i fired arrows at the first maneater till he died!!!! Then it was easy as i had to take down only one more....

 

 

Loved ,my NG+ run cos i felt really powerfull!!! The fact that you can carry forward all the weapons makes a lot of sense in this game!!!

 

 

Waiting for the black phantom edition.... Will surely plat this game :)

Progress is automatically saved every few seconds. There's a pulsing white light on the top right of the screen when progress is saved. It's also saved after any action (changing worlds, inventory, weapons, dying).

 

Magic spells have to be bought and you need a catalyst to cast spells. Initially there's a mage's apprentice on the ground floor who will sell some spells. Through the rest of the game you'll get access to more powerful ones. There are also miracles which are similar to spells but more protective in nature, and need a talisman to cast. Again, initially there's a sage's apprentice in the ground floor to buy miracles, and later you can rescue a powerful sage for the more powerful miracles. Stick to either miracles or spells - not both - since the attribute required for each is separate.

Oh no you didn't. Maybe the second best.

 

 

Anyway, I was supposed to the UK phantom edition but bought something instead. The problem is I'm not in a position to invest 50 hrs + in a game, partly due to work partly due to personal commitments and mostly because I have a huge backlog since I'm a cheap indie/used/Steam games wh*re. Anyway, the point is, is Demon's Souls a kind of game which I can, say, put off for a week and come back and pick up from where you left off?? A lot of reviews seem to suggest otherwise but just asking.

 

Edit - So the game does not pause even if you press the PS button or it does??

well you could take a break and return but you get the maximum fun out of it when played in continuation,

the only problem with returning from a break is that you need to once again be humble and ready to die, a lot!

 

nope, pressing the PS button doesn't pause, nor does browsing any of the equipments of even changing equipments.

Game does not pause - ever. Not even the PS button. You can pick this game up easily after you leave it for a few weeks - it's exactly like Diablo II that way. The good thing is that each stage is so short you can go through them in one hour or so and then come back later for the next stage. Some stages boil down to just the boss battle (few minutes or few hours - depends on how many times you die).
