This game has officially made it to my MUST-BUY list, at first I thought it was another somewhat-interesting action RPG game. But these two trailers changed my feelings for this game forever.
As I mentioned Demon’s Souls is an action RPG, what sets this one different from what’s currently out there right now is that it has co-op mode. That’s not all, when you die in a particular area, you can leave notes behind so other players can read what you leave behind so they won’t make the same mistakes you made going through the same area. I find this very original, definitely an interesting and helpful feature.
As for the co-op mode, you can ask up to three more players for help in a given area. You can also be asked to help others. Afterwards you as well as the other three will have the ability to rate each other so other players can pick based on feedbacks. I wonder if there will be any mechanism to prevent losers from abusing the rating system where he/she will give bad ratings to players even though they perform positively.
Another thing that caught my eyes is the huge boss battles in Demon’s Souls, yes I love huge bosses because huge boss battles are just too EPIC to miss these days! It gets even better when you can kick some huge boss ass with three others!
Demon’s Souls will be out exclusively for the PlayStation 3 in the fall of this year. But I still have to get my PS3 fixed asap! This might just be the RPG I need that will last me until Final Fantasy 13 is out.
