That's never going to happen.

@xaLieNxGrEyx: Sorry, can't see what you just typed because I'm keeping my eyes shut. Can't wait for that PC release, though!

@AndrewB:

enjoy the wait

This constant back-and-forth is tearing me apart! This is, like, the third time this has happened now... D:

They should start a Kickstarter to help fund the servers. That'd be the first time I actually donate to one of those.

This is awesome news. Been co-oping a full playthrough over the last month with a friend to experience it all over again, and going back is so much fun. Its interesting going back after playing so much Dark Souls, the combat definitely has a different feel to it, its almost a bit faster in Demon's Souls. Anyways, the 31st deadline forced us to play which was great because we probably would've put it off and not bothered. But now they will probably give us another deadline in the next year and it'll bring me back again, such a great game!

@benjaebe: You can get 100% of the trophies offline of course. It's just made much easier with PWWT / PBWT events. Speaking of which it's STILL white tendency. Hope they're at black this weekend. I haven't done co-op much, and I certainly haven't been trading items online.

@illegalnull: It is nuts how fearless I am now that I've (nearly) finished both games. Took both my NG+ and NG character and hoofed it to the Tower Knight and wasted him. Amazing feeling. Still it doesn't change the two fundamental rules of Souls games: 1) You can kill any one thing. 2) Any two things can kill you.

You say that, and yet someplace like GOG was able to get Microsoft Studios to let them release DRM-free versions of Alan Wake and American Nightmare...

If that type of crazy and impossible shit can happen, then I don't see why a Demon's Souls PC port couldn't happen. Because of Sony? Please. They'd love to get some more money out of an old IP, and with the fever pitch around Dark Souls PC (despite it's GWL bullshit), they'd probably get a little more than they expected.

All hypothesis, of course.

Has Patrick played this game yet?  For somebody who likes horror games, it would be ashamed if he never got to (properly) play the best horror game of the generation because the servers got shut down.

@jakob187:

And again, enjoy the wait.

@Spoonman671: ... It's a horror game? 80 hours later and I've never thought about it... even now that I think of similarities to Eternal Darkness... nope, never thought about it that way.

This is probably not the best thread for this question, but can someone reading this go and attempt the Stockpile Thomas glitch? I am 99% certain the ability to press Start to dismiss the Nexus prompt has been stealth patched out.

This is great news, as I can summon someone to help with with the final boss. This is starting to cause me an aneurysm.

It still works

This seems to happen every couple months with the servers. The only thing keeping them alive is renewed interest due to dark souls. Also the trophies are insanely easy to get due to an infinite souls cheat I Discovered during NG++.

@benjaebe: Why would it effect the trophies?

@elessarLOTR: If you're at NG++ It wouldn't take very long to finish regardless. Also Flamelurker is aggravated at your decision, cheese Maneater all you like but Flamelurker deserves to kill you several times a playthrough.
