Demon's Souls and 3D Dot Game Heroes

From Software has two very unique and very interesting PlayStation 3 exclusives





the first is the dungeon crawler Demon's Souls, an allegedly nerve-wrecking and masochistic experience. i've heard people compare it to old school games. inching forward through the challenges only to be decimated by some new fiend or boss, and forced to try again


what really intrigues me is the emphasis on death. i've been bothered by the inherent temporariness of death in video games for a while now, and this is the first one that i know of to consciously address that. as the sole living person on the battlefield, life is your most precious possession. this approach seems to be fully realized by the game's bleak and uninviting art design


3D Dot Game Heroes looks to be a nostalgia-filled homage to The Legend of Zelda and similar 8-bit adventures. the story deals with a king tiring of his 2D world, and magically adding a third dimension. but the pixelated look stays, with each pixel represented by a small cube. that alone is genius enough, but take a look at the art style in this video


enjoy the Engrish and the blippy music. i like how when things die the pixel-blocks explode everywhere



i really really really want both of these games. when i save up some extra cash i'll get Demon's Souls, and when 3D Dot Game Heroes comes to North America next May i'll pick that up too. actually, i may put that on my birthday list. i haven't gotten a game for my birthday in such a long time, and this would be a great one to relive that joy

I'ne heard of Demon Souls, and heard good things. and yes, you're right about the death thing. too many games now are just like "Oops, you died! it's okay, you can start again from where you just were!"

let me clarify. every video game in the history of video games has this same problem: death is never permanent, and very, very rarely does the death carry weight

A lot of my friends have bought Demonīs souls from Canada, and they love it, the only reason why i havenīt bought it, is because everyone complains about how hard it is.

games are too easy these days anyway. people complaining about a game's difficulty is a sign of the decline of society

You won't buy a difficult game? Why not? If I can pick up a game and blaze through it without much effort, I am sorely disappointed.

Same here. If a game is now difficult, it is quite boring...

I would buy a difficult game, of course.
But my difficulty level stops at Metroid Prime. I feel like thatīs the most difficult series iīve ever played, so for me to start playing Demonīs souls would be rather impossible.

that is quite absurd. if i had a barometer based on my skill level that determined what kind of games i played, i would have missed out on so many rewarding experiences. a game that truly and directly challenges you, requires your mastery and persistence, requires you to better yourself, those are the truly meaningful games. if you set limits for yourself then you are doing just that; limiting

and come on, the Prime series is easy

Yeah, if you limit yourself to your skill level, you miss out on tons of great games, and you never get better.
