    Sweet Jesus. I just did the 1-2 boss 1st try. I'm not going to pretend it didn't take 20 minutes, nor that I didn't employ some underhanded tactics to win. But my fucking god, my heart's pounding through my bastard chest.
    Ah there we go. A proper souls moment :)

    Wait a minute... my ps5 is recording a video clip every time an achievement pops. That's pretty cool.

    And it looks like the last update fucked it, splash screen but no actual game. Cheers Sony.

    Restart fixed it, phew.

    Yeah, I'm not generally one for achievements and videos and things. I might try some 4k recording though, see how it goes.

    Good run tonight, all of 4-1 and 3-1 done, and found my lovely uchigatana as well.

    Same here. I was literally gonna call it a night and make a quick post waxing lyrical about the amazing level, sound and graphic design - then I fell in the fucking hole.

    On the plus side, got back to it quick.

    Kinda sailed through the opening area only dying on the boss in one of those 'hey im actually doing alright at this ... ah fuck I'm screwed moments.

    Got past that on my 4th attempt after farming some fire bombs. "Ohh whats next... oh.. shit.. I remember this DEATH. I can't figure out how to cross the last section where the wall meets the castle doors as there are 2 blue eyes buggers and a bunch of archers and the one above raining down upon me.

    I know. ill try another area! That raining area look cool. Oh.. rolling skeletons... YOU DIED
    let try this 3rd one then... ohhh its dark... this looks like a big fall I hope I dont miss a step abd slip off the... FUCK... YOU DIED.

    I might juat go back to the first area and pretend I'm good at the game

    Iím trying to imagine how 3-1 looks in this and whether it makes it more or less scary.

    @robc84 Pretty scary IMO.

    Me and my missus who was watching had a massive jumpscare when I turned a corner and saw a Mind Flayer right in front of me, the bastard must have been following me.

    Well I need a new pair of pants. The bells and the singing is as creepy as always, but it's so atmospheric.

    The spell effects are also beefed up loads, so hearing the crack and the massive effects of soul arrow flyiing at you in an enclosed space is terrifying.

    Tentatively rounding a corner, and getting your face sucked off by a 'cthulhu' is horrible.

    Personally thought it was better, and even more impressive. The sense of scale is awesome and knee weakening.

    I think I briefly played this when it was offered in the early days of PS+? Defeated phalanx last night and stopped when I reached the Tower Knight. I'm kind of loving it.

    For me this is all new and a bit overwhelming. There are conversations in this thread that are like a foreign language. It's like you're all part of a secret society and I dont have a fucking clue what you are all talking about.

    3-1 is pretty stunning to look at in this, albeit in a kinda horrible way. It gives a much better sense of scale than the original ever did.

    It's also fucking tense because if the various *-1s, it's by far the longest run to get back to the end if you die. I managed to no-deaths it yesterday, but it was properly brown-trousers stuff coming up on the boss (who fortunately is cake).

    @Rogueywon

    Yeah the Black Phantom outside is more challenging than the doll.. It's a doodle if you remember to take out the healer on the balcony.

    Feels weird spoilering a 10 year old game :)

    :) Any tips for a complete novice? Preferably ones where you say 'go to this area and find this god tier item squirelled away'

    I can't help feeling I'm always missing things because I dont know the minutiae of it all. I know that half the fun is discovery, but I'm old and my time is limited!

    Spent half an hour running up and down the castle stairs like a coward before finally beating the 1-2 boss. Almost woke baby celebrating - you don't get the highs and low like this in anything else!

    Same here but restart didn't fix it so uninstalled/reinstall to no avail. Just cleared the database in safe mode after another delete and redownload. Fingers crossed when I try it in 3 hours time.

    Yeah I died on the bridge bit first time by rushing in and getting mullered by the two blue eyed knights but you can actually stop a fair bit short of the door itself. Trick the dragon into doing a cycle of its flame breath over the bridge and then use the smouldering embers on the floor as a guide for where you can stop at.

    Have you guys tried force closing the app and restarting the console?

    If I don't force close the game before I shut down the console, it always hangs on the splash screen.

    @stephenb donít consume the souls of demons to rank up. You can use them for things later...

    Best advice I can give for any PS5 game is close the apps when you've finished with them for now until a patch comes. Every single issue I've had with the console up to now has been born out of either quick resuming from rest mode or using one of the cards to jump to a section quickly.
