    I know this was all my idea, I'm just not sure how I'll find the time! Hopefully Bioshock won't take too long.

    What character would I roll then? Suggestions? Maybe a faith build or a heavy. Not done either of those.

    I was thinking exactly the same thing - heavy or faith. Or both.

    I don't want to do magic or dex, so it's got to be one of the above. Plus it'll be fun I reckon

    Can a heavy / faith hybrid be done? My dex / mag hybrid didn't really work out too well.

    I'm thinking specialising in one or the other is probably better.

    @Armoured_Bear

    What did you go with in Dark Souls?

    Magic = OP
    Dex = Steady
    Strength = Average

    However, some faith builds are really powerful, especially for PVP

    If you want easy mode, go Royalty and get a crescent falchion
    If you want versatility, roll thief or wanderer

    I've not really tried many strength or faith builds, but they'll probably be tricky, as per dark souls

    I won't do much, if any PVP

    Royal doesn't sound bad.

    God, the run to FKA is utterly brutal.

    Forgot what dire situations From throws at you around every corner before you even get to the fog gate. Way, way harder than any boss route in DkS that's for damn sure. Been on it for a round about a week, and got to the boss twice. He kicked my arse both times as well, of course :)

    The first (and only) other time I beat him, which was about a year ago, I was a shivering wreck afterwards. Now I'm having trouble even reaching him.

    I love these games!

    Its definitely harder I reckon.

    At least 3 reks on the way to the king isnt there? Fuck, they're hard enough on their own when youre starting out / on your first play through

    GODDAMMIT, even typing this reply is really make me want to roll a char!!

    The bastard on the narrow stairs with the giant sword which takes half my health while blocking. The fat ministers on the bridge, especially the second one who is harder to cheese. The godamn cunting dragon with his largely unpredictable fire breath. And that's not even counting the non-respawning phantoms, the three at the start, and you-know-who before the lift. All this allied to a boss which has that ability.

    What makes it especially difficult though, is that it's unbelievably hard to just run through to get to the fog. So you have to fight them all. Every. Damn. Time.

    It's a proper gauntlet.

    This implies that he won't complete the inital stages and then move onto a new build ;)

    @quadfather

    What in particular makes you rate Demon's Souls higher than Dark?

    I'm not looking for an argument/list - you seem to be the most informed poster on all things Souls related so I'd be really interested in hearing your view - apologies if you've already stated the reasons earlier in this thread!

    I've played both a couple of times myself and the only areas I'd put Demon's over Dark is the NPCs, online set-up and the world tendency system. Personally I'd give Dark Souls the edge for its connected world and covenant system. Latria is the king of areas, though.

    They're both very similar though, hence my original question - I don't seem to see as much difference between the titles as others do :confused:
