RPG Backtrack - Episode 139: Soultaker

JuMeSynJuMeSyn Code: KirinAdministrators
In 2009 Atlus took a risk by ordering the largest print run for a game in its history, but that gamble paid off handsomely. Corpses litter the world of Demon's Souls, and talking about that grim but unforgettable place is today's topic.
Darn flying manta rays...
It's not what he's eating, but what's eating him that makes it ... sort of interesting.

    World tendency in demons never made sense to me. I read up on it and figured how you could get what you wanted. Still never liked that part of the mechanics. Souls games are awesome though.

    This actually clarified something I was confused about with Souls games. I'd hear, in the same breath, that they're awesome and some of the best... but also incredibly difficult, where you die a lot. This felt confusing, like I was missing something, but it sounds like it builds dying into it. That's interesting game design. I might have to get Dark Souls or Dark Souls II for PC, sometime, then. Or Demon Souls, if I get a PS3 like me and the missus have discussed. Any suggestions for a Souls game to jump in with?

    I'd start with Dark Souls. It's the least frustrating to die in since it doesn't have any real penalty unlike Souls 2 and Demons and it has a more compact world. Demons Souls has some super frustrating areas as well despite the good stuff, and given it also doesn't have a nice refilling supply of healing items it can be especially frustrating to a new player (it's also the lesser of the three titles).

    Definitely good to know! And a little cheaper, too.
