Demon's Souls Q & A

775 Replies 6,692 Views Created 25-07-2009

For any questions people might have.

 

I'll start with a couple:

 

1)  Can you drop items and pick them up again later?  What happens if you're carrying all you can and you find something else to pick up?

 

2)  If you have a Black Phantom in your game and you lose your body before they get to you what happens to you and them?

I always quit in the Nexus.
Anyway, I've sold my copy now (for a profit too) in order to make room for the NA version. Anyone know if VG+ Visa payment option charges you when you order the game, or when the game has been posted?

 

 

where did u order an american copy from mate?

- On their website it says only Paypal payments don't qualify for 'pay on dispatch'.  So you shouldn't have to pay more than the delivery period in advance.
I bet you're going to whizz through it having played it before.

Lol, I probably will. I pretty much know who drops what, and how I should go about levelling, doing world/ character tendency, order of the levels i complete - Everything :P I may forget a bit of it by then, but the enemys' will be easy :P
Sadly, I'll be back in uni when the game is out, and with this being my final year, its going to be hard to find some time to play this (and the other games) so gaming time will be far and few :(
You still have the game on order Wopper?

Yeah I have it on order.  Expecting it within 2 weeks of the release date.

 

Definitely don't mess up your final year at Uni.  Games are becoming dangerously good now for people in education.

If you are helping someone else in their game as a blue phantom and they die completely do you carry on or what?  Do you suffer a penalty for it?

If the living player dies from any source, you simply get booted back to your own world as if nothing happened.

You do get to keep any souls you earned before you or the host died though :)

Good point, that's right.

 

It's nice when you get to kill the boss together though, with the extra chunk of souls at the end. The number I get is different each time though. Either that's because they're on different playthroughs or because it depends on the grades given.

 

The text on the grade screen leads me to believe it's the latter, but I often doubt it, it could be just another bad translation.

- So if you're a blue phantom and you help kill a boss do you get their unique demon soul too?  And will it clear the boss in your own game?

As a blue phantom, if you and the living player survive and kill the boss, you both get a portion of the souls awarded from the kill.

 

Only the living player can loot the actual Demon's Soul item, though.

 

Boss kills as a blue phantom won't affect your world at all.

 

The only physical effect it can have on your world is if you succeed in killing the boss or if the living player casts a resurrection spell on you, you are returned back to body form. Both send you back to your own world where you left off.

If you're in someone else's game as a blue phantom and a black phantom enters do you get a warning?  I know the player whose game it is does.  And also how easy is it to communicate with the people you're co-operating with?  Is there a message system in-game?  Is it only pre-written text you can use or can you type your own stuff?  And is there voice chat?

Yes, the red warning text comes up for every player.

 

Ingame communication between co-op players is limited to basic "emotes". Waving, bowing, shrugging, that sort of thing. You would have to use PSN messages to talk to them otherwise.

 

There is no voice chat.

Do not buy this game if you haveor want a life!!!

60 hours so far, on the 8th playthrough at the moment. Level 190 with the plat added to my collection. :)

 

Going to see how much further I can get him but at this point the game is far too easy.

Total of 200 hours+ gametime
levels 170 Knight on NG+, 50 something Warrior and 20 Temple Knight

WhiteAlexander, how did you get to your 8th playthrough in 60 hours??? Took me nearly 120 hours to finish my first playthrough.

The game isn't too long, really. Once you know where to go and what to do it's easy to breeze through the levels. Even quicker if you have blue phantoms helping you.

 

If you have Firestorm and a reasonable magic stat, bosses are a total pushover aswell.

Where are your accumulated souls kept?  Obviously you lose souls you've picked up if you die, but can you pick up some souls, return to the Nexus and store them somewhere so that they're safe if you go on to die later?  Can you play through part of a level and then return to the Nexus to 'save' your collected souls, over and over?

 

When you beat a level boss does it remove all enemies from the level permanently?
