Deep beneath the Nexus, the Old One has awakened. A mighty demon horde pours into Boletaria, devouring the souls of men. Called upon by a maiden in black, you go forth to lift the curse...
Demon's Souls is a real-time combat RPG set in a dark fantasy medieval Europe-inspired world, where you pick a class, create your own hero, and go around fighting a bunch of demons in order to claim their souls and free the land of Boletaria. It has an interesting online system in which you can see other people playing at the same time as you occasionally. You can also leave helpful messages for other players, or if someone dies in another game, you can touch their bloodstain to see how that person died in order to get hints. Players can also enter your game either to help you out or invade you.
This game is also difficult and will kick you in the balls, numerous times. Death in this game means losing all of your souls and starting at the very beginning of the level, with every enemy re-spawning. You get one chance to collect the souls you've lost, but once they're gone, you have to start all over. I should also mention that with every time you lose, the enemies will get harder and harder.
So MAN UP and play some Demon's Souls. firetruck you guys for not having a thread on this already.
