    Iíve not played it anywhere near as much as some of you; Iím just thinking of the Hail Mary dash for the enchanted falchion in 3-1?
    Get that and then begin

    At one stage I was thinking of Platinum-ing it and needed Pure black WT for a unique Npc drop in the mine area?
    During the fight, he fell down a massive hole and his drop was mid-air and inaccessible. Fuck that trophy.

    It will be nice if they improve upon the 5 big world bosses in the Remake.
    False King to be fair was awesome, but the others might need something new. DG especially, as going properly toe to toe with it (like Kalameet etc). after the initial stealth bit would be awesome. The novelty of invasions with OM has worn off, so something new involving the cloth would be worthwhile. SK is pretty epic but the mechanics could be tightened up a bit. Finally MA is perfect left as she is, but Garl could be a proper boss, rather than just an NPC, especially as he stands in the toxic swamp and you would expect some horrific changes?
    Final boss is suitable as is, as sometimes it is more important for the lack of challenge to tell the story. On the other hand, I would enjoy some crazy multiphase boss fight as he becomes increasingly more wretched.

    The most frustrating part was the whole white/black world thing. Never got to grips with it and probably missed out on a few areas because of it.

    World tendency was one of the best things about the game. It made everything you do part of a larger framework that had significance to the player.

    Nah fuck that, murdering yourself directly after beating an area was a bit soul destroying

    Original is so damn good. I remember 1-1 kicking my ass for an embarrassing amount of time. I'd never played a game like it.

    I would love this to be a launch game.

    Wasn't World Tendency somewhat tied to the average WT value of the server once you logged in, making it utterly difficult to manipulate as it wasn't entirely affected by your in-game actions?

    I do recall disconnecting my PS3 before playing for that reason...

    Edit: ... not that it got me anywhere, I don't think I've achieved pure white or black status...

    @JonFE

    Yeah exactly that. The overall average was always roughly in the middle or leaning to white slightly so you'd never be about to get pure black or white unless you went offline. The idea is great, it just manifested itself in strange ways. I.e if you wanted black, after killing a boss and going human form, you'd have to kill yourself to make the world a bit blacker, and so on. Loads of other weird and wonderful ways to get it whiter / darker

    I nearly traded it in at that point in 1-1. I tried loads of times but it didn't work. I was getting well frustrated with it, then all of a sudden, on a precarious walkway, I managed to fight my way through three goons by luck more than judgement and it was a great feeling. It clicked then.

    The only time I pulled my cable was to do that boss that used to get replaced by a player as you entered.

    Bastards would always hide by the door and one shot you when you enter the room.

    Really hope the keep all the cheaty bits though, you could shoot arrows through fog walls and the some boss rooms was so massive you could shoot the boss (like King what's his face at the end of world 1? ) from one side of the room without aggroing him :D

    Quaddy I think you need to stream your playthrough of this when it comes it!! :). I'd definitely watch again after seeing you play ds1.

    I've been replaying it on the emulator.

    My first reaction was to quit and wait, but I know that finishing it on the emulator won't stop me wanting to finish it again.

    How stable is it now? I want to play it, but the last streamer I saw using it had it crash all the time

    I miss being able to bump the PS4 version of this thread at random intervals for shits and giggles.

    No idea! Not that far in - couple of hours maybe. Still heading for the bridge via various houses and stuff. Experiencing both mutants and gangs. Though I haven't got to the bloater mutant yet, which I am feeling should be fairly soon.
