Yes some of the systems aren't as refined in Demon Souls but the basics are there with the same concept, and to be honest it does feel harder. If your on the fence watch the quick look. It gives you a look of how the start of game is.
For those curious, this is all Patrick said about it as part of a general criticism of McHale's jokes:
And when someone replied:
@patrickklepek even the two transphobic jokes he made?
Doesn't seem like that big of a response to me, but I suppose not liking some tasteless jokes is enough to get some hate these days.
Gotta agree after reading the forum and that last sentence "So Patrick, for the sake of equality, please just say 'That joke was bad' instead of 'That joke was bad because it was poking fun at a people who are disenfranchised in a thousand worst ways than this' " I thought it was a lot worse than it was. But it seems like he said exactly that, plus a disappointment in his attitude toward the gaming community.
It's really a great controller. I thought it would be weird after playing so much 360 for so many years, and loving that controller, but now after trying to go back to the 360 controller it feels so foreign and weird.
@earlygrab666: As someone who initially defended Microsoft's Xbox Live service for years I now prefer PS+ Why? Well even though its required now with PS4 to play online the service benefits you across all your sony devices. PS3,Vita, PS4 and they don't lock stupid things like Netflix behind a paywall like Microsoft. Even with the free games Microsoft is giving out their choices are horrible and almost insulting. With PS+ right now you can get access to a few of the best games from 2012 like Dragons Dogma and Binary Domain. I think the overall experience on PSN has finally eclipsed Xbox LIVE.
Pretty much agree with all of this. The mindset of PS+ just makes more sense and the games PS+ offers that are free are just better/more relevant. Live has gotten better with Halo 3, AC2 and Dead Rising 2, still lacking though. I just got the PS4 and everything is fast and the UI is good. I'm not sure if it's better then Xones, I've heard it's not, but really it works fine to me. Still too early for me, since I just switched to PS+, to say whether it's got better match making or if it filters out "jerks". As far as I can tell the online game experience between Live and Plus are identical I can't tell a difference.
Really I'm ok with the games score, even from the start I thought the Xone had much better launch line up but I saw PS4 had much better games coming out later, specifically a lot of Indie games, so I'm buying this consul for the long term not the launch line up. I'll have BF4 to keep me busy till more games come out. Eventually I'll get an Xone onces the price goes down in a few years or buy it used just probably won't get live.
My Main Advise: Don't be afraid to start over, if you create a character and put a lot of skill points into one thing and find out you like something else better (for example focusing on strength and finding out you like spears that use dexterity or that you like to use magic). Go with how you like to play most in other action games and see if that works for you if not then try messing around with other styles you'd think you'd like with that character and, once you get a feel for it, start over knowing what you like/are good at. It may sound weird for such a hard game but with the knowledge of what the first part of the game is and a character made to play with your fighting style you'll rock the parts you did already in a fraction of the time, trust me, and it'll make the rest of the game that much easier.
Then just follow the advise the other duders mentioned.
