Ha! I play on PS3 Dan.
It's under the desk .
What's the platform of choice for most people on here? I've made the jump from Xbox to PC (with a controller of course, I can't stand those god awful keyboard and mouse controls).
Ps3 mainly, but pc also since the dlc came out

I have Xbox and PC versions. I've actually just carried on with my Xbox version mostly since getting the PC copy but I do plan to level up some more characters on the PC.

@PenguinJim Agreed. I thought the game looked good on my plasma, but the PC version with the fix makes it look unbelievably good! So sharp and detailed.

360 and PC here, flicking between the 2 on my tv shows just how good the PC version can look at 1080p, and its so smooth!

@Goodfella - I was watching Dark Souls Rosie, (who if none of you have seen her videos, some of them are quite hilarious.)
She poses as the Bandit class in the dark root garden, she pretends to be one of the NPC's, and when invaders come near she one-shots them with a backstab.
Its really quite funny.
Although i think its called "Indiana Jones Souls" or something. The guy is a complete jerk basically ganking round sens, but its so funny.
My own take on that would be dressing up in full havel gear (armour, greatshield, dragontooth) after bumping him off and hanging around his room, waiting to see if they pass me by and promptly using the two handed R2 attack to flatten them.
Edit: Having watch some of Dark Souls Rosie and came to the conclusion that they're kind of a douchebag, the kind of invader that will wait until you're attacking an enemy for them to strike, rather than waiting and then going for the kill.
I know a sense of honour probably isn't the kind of thing you get from PvPing in Dark Souls but having been through the torture of Sen's Fortress the last thing you need is some douchebag dropping on you as you're slowly trying to make your way across narrow bridges.
I get that "doing anything to win" is kind of the creed of Dark Souls but...honestly say I'm glad I'm offline if that is the kind of shit you have to put up with.

@Dr_Mech - Hehehe, Havel would be a good one to imitate, I'd probably imitate Shiva in the darkroot if it was possible.
I agree, although incredibly funny, the indiana jones guy sucks. Can you imagine how pissed off you'd be if you were a victim of his.
I only really invade people because I like to fight people 1-on-1. But the battle for scizium gazebo whatever (in the DLC) doesnt work for me.
Atleast in the painted world where I invade, theres a mixture of people to invade. Some are waiting for a fair fight, some are waiting on the bridge with 2 other guys to gank you. Some people you fight fairly but are trying to complete the level.....its all good fun.

@Architect_z The other thing that sucks ballsac about the arena is that I haven't once had any souls as a reward for succeeding. In fact, are there any rewards for the duels?
Yeah the servers are apparently staying up "indefinitely".
Did you also notice how much faster it is?
Yeh I want to play demons souls properly again, although I'm hungry for more info on Dark Souls II.
I liked invading on Dark Souls, but when you start winning all the time it gets a tad dull.
Not sure why, but that's a good a reason as any. Also, not only smoother, but actually physically faster - rolling, parrying, riposting just feel quicker to me
Yes, love the speed in Demon's
Backstabbing has a smaller window but I find parrying a TON easier. I did all the skeletons up to the black one in 4-1 by parrying and didn't miss one.
This is from a person that may parry 3% in dark souls
I suppose it's a little harder. Combat is the same, but the environment is trickier - shortcuts maybe, but no bonfires
The soundtrack for Demon's Souls is whack though. The nexus music is nice. But Dark Souls' soundtrack poo's over everything else, (well apart from SotC OST)
@Architect_z - oh, I dunno - I'd say that the music in the 5-3 boss fight in demon's souls is better than any of the other tracks in Demons + Dark put together
@quadfather - Hehehe, Gwyn's music is amazing considering its just a piano. My favourite all in all is Gravelord Nito on the dark souls OST. Its pure punchy terror. Also daughters of chaos is great too. Taurus demon, you cant really go wrong with that. ^_^
Yeah, I like Gwyn's too.
But the 5-3 music in demon's combined with the experience you go through in that fight is just too damn emotional for me
Nononono! It's not bloody better! Let's leave it at 'both games have fantastic music'
Or we'll be arguing this for years!
Lol - any other thread and debating about the musical scores would have resulted in trolling by now. Gotta love how laid back this thread is still
