So I just got Demons' Souls and played a bit of it. Here are my questions.
1. How do I break a person's guard? I can't deal with that knight with blue eyed helmet. He takes off too much stamina when I block, his shield is always up otherwise, and I'm too afraid to parry because the manual says certain enemies can't be parried/crited. I'm using a dagger-like weapon, if that matters. I remember in the tutorial it said if I two-hand a weapon I can break an enemy's guard, but I failed in that part of the tutorial by instead killing the knight with arrows using hit-and-run (since the knight in the tutorial had small aggro range).
This is the first level after the tutorial. =\
2. Also I heard online support for Demon's Souls is dropping soon, how much will my game experience be affected by this? =(
3. What do I do with extra equipment, should I give it to that storage guy to hold, or just drop them. It doesn't look like I can sell anything for souls, but I guess that makes sense.
