    My magic run has been a walk in the park so far. Think I've only died 3 times! Bit overpowered!

    Completely different story with melee tho.

    I started my first game as hunter which wasnt bad for a dex char I think.

    Servers are still running, all of the regions/versions of the game.

    Wow, lots of Dark players must prefer Demons for those still to be running. I thought From/Sony were turning off the Japan/US servers.

    The Japan version, run by Sony was never in jeopardy of getting shut down. Atlus announced that they wanted to shut down their US version servers but they canceled their plans. Namco's EU version is also still running. So all three are still online.

    Brilliant. Everyone must get to play this in all its glory to be fair, and the threat of invasion should always be feared!

    @Dangerous_Dan

    Thanks for the tips.

    So is it the same as in DEX = dancing about, bows, scythes etc, STR for huge weapons and fatties, faith for cleric miracles etc and INT for spellslingers?

    If I go Royalty is it a pure magic class or some sort of magic/dex or str hybrid?

    Dex for quick weapons and strength for heavy weapons that's the general tendency but the whole upgrading system is a bit different.

    Dex for bows and daggers and uchi,... if you choose the right upgrade path that is. It's a tad more complicated than in Dark Souls.

    Faith for miracles and miracle-spell-slots. Magic for magic spell strength. Intelligence for more mana and magic spell slots.
    Both, miracles and magic spells need mana.

    As in Dark Souls, the starting class is only important for the first bit of the game, you can transform them into whatever you like.
    Royality starts with a good magic setup and more importantly it starts at the lowest soul level (SL 1) and so it's good for creating specialized low SL chars.

    Not dying initially is very important. But you will! :D I'll let Dan explain.

    If you die, just once, even in the tutorial, the game will erase all data from the internal storage in your PS3. The developer opted for the real pain approach. It's a well guarded secret in the Demon's community.

    Good starting character. Get magic regen and a spell from the off. Just need to focus on a decent weapon.

    Have you ever played it before, or is this all completely new?

    What kinda tips do you want? all, some, none?

    It's completely new matey. I never played it because I didn't have a PS3 since before the game came out. Recently got a PS3 again and so finally took the plunge.

    So I know obviously how Dark Souls works, but my knowledge of DeS is limited to none. I haven't even watched any EpicNameBro videos of Demons Souls, only Dark Souls.

    Dangerous Dan gave me some welcome tips, and mentioned starting as royalty, so I guess that's where I begin. But in terms of upgrade paths, where the ideal weapons/spells/items are, or anything, I am a complete nubcake.

    I'm basically going in blind.

    Fair do's.

    ok, well some non-spoilery stuff to save you time -

    Ignore worrying about upgrading armour, because you can't.

    It has bosses. Keep the souls, for the love of god - don't consume any for the time being.

    In the first level (1-1), do not leave until you have 2 rings.

    Really need to mention tendency and soul form/human form but it's a lengthy topic. Let's not worry about it for now

    Try parrying - I find it's easier in demon's. Whereas the backstab is a bit of a tighter angle.

    Be very wary of anything with red eyes.

    Now, off you pop :)

    Roll speed is different too - if you're under 25%, it's super fast roll time.

    I'll bet you a pint you find demon's faster and more fluid than Dark 1 and 2

    If you are below 50% then it's the fastest roll time, in Demon's. That 25% is for Dark.

    In any case, I'm glad quad is here now, so that I can relax, read his answers instead of having to post them myself. hehe

    Ok, so I have started the game, done the tutorial, and into Boletarian Palace, because that's the only area I can go, right?

    One thing I do not understand is why am I at 50% health permenantly?

    Also, the first time I have died in this area... to the Knight with the red eyes. I previously came across ones with blue eyes. Considering this guy hits hard can I assume red = bad? :p The red-eyed knight (with his polearm/spear I think) can one shot me if he gets a hit in.

    Considering I had to go all the way from the start to this dude, is there anywhere to save in between or am I running the whole way... obviously there are no bonfires so how does the save system work...?
