Hey I was hoping somebody could give me advice on a good progression (area to area) for a first time through Demon's Souls. I beat Dark Souls and have played a lot of NG+ - I've logged more than 70 hours into it and love it but Demon's Souls is just different enough that I'm just not sure where to go. I've beaten the first boss (Phalanx) and kind of wandered around a bit here and there but the lack of bonfires and the central hub are throwing me off.
Any suggested area progression breakdown? Like go here, beat this boss, return to this place, etc. etc. I can figure out the specifics myself and know how I want to spec my character. I just feel super lost and frustrated. I feel like Dark Souls alleviated a lot of the issues in Demon's Souls.
