Aren't they shutting down the server for this game soon? This would get rid of a lot of the big features the game has to offer.

@hawkman7253: Not as soon as it would be if you were to buy it now; the servers were extended and are guaranteed so far to last until around Winter this year.

@hawkman7253: It appears so, but this is what one person has said any many others have agreed with:

"The online stuff isn't that important, you never interact with anyone you see as they appear as ghosts. You interact by leaving messages left on the ground. The only thing about online is the ability to hijack another players game to kill them, if they are in body form, and this is rare. I've not survived long enough in body form.

In fact, I noticed no real difference this week, as I had not updated my PS3 F/W so I couldn't sign in to PSN, and therefor played offline."

So it seems like online play was just an added benefit anyway.

Demon's Souls is a really difficult but rewarding game. I don't really like the aspect of someone showing up to kill me periodically; that parts annoying. The actual game itself is very much worth the price, without the online play.

@iggz: Well, he had failed to mention the ability to summon other people to help defeat that level

@mrsocks: Yeah I guess if you're one of those people who need help beating things...

@iggz: Do you like 'Beating It' on your own? Or is it more fun to have a partner? :)

I dont know if it had anything to do with the sale, but I was only charged shipping. Amazon gave me a promotion credit equal to the game price, and so i was only charged 4.95 for the send. WOOT WOOT!

As for the servers shutting down, I found myself logging out of PSN to play Demon's Souls because of the world tendency shift that could get screwed up if you play online.

Simply put [edit: "simply"? well, here it is in any case], if you die enough in a level that level shifts to black and special events/items are unlocked. If you beat enough bosses in a level without dieing that level shifts to white, and another set of special events/items are unlocked. The Demon's Souls servers added their own nudge towards black or white based on how the community was doing (typically more towards white) which could mess with your game if you were trying to go the other way.

I guess what I'm trying to say is just buy this game, it's badass, the servers are open for months yet, and even if you don't play online you don't lose out on much.

I love this game. It's better offline anyways, don't have some jerk come kill you lol. Great artwork in it too.

The game has a crazy hard difficultly level, but if you can push through the first level, the game is quite fun.

Not for those who aren't willing to wipe for a while on the first level.

@captpikel: So then the majority of games content can be played offline?
