Demon's Souls was one of the most surprising--and easily the most difficult--releases in 2009. From Software is wasting no time with a sequel--er, spiritual successor. Dark Souls has been described as more or less an unofficial sequel to Demon's Souls, which mean only the most hardcore should apply here.

When will you have a chance to play Dark Souls? The answer is October. October something something. There's no specific date yet but the same month of Halloween is fitting. One can begin preparation...now.

As for me, I vastly prefer watching other people suffer through these games. This shall be no different.

You mean releases in 2009? Anyways, Demon's souls isn't exactly hard, it's just time consuming since you have to keep upgrading and grinding. The only way it's hard is if you're expecting to run right through it like any other game. This game looks epic, literally.

I suppose the trailer will be posted separate? Always looks rather weird when it's split like that, like GB's posting the same story twice; once in text, then video.

It literally looks just like Demons Souls, and I couldn't be happier about that. Christ, the animations are even the same. I can't wait.

People that dismissed this game as "that hard game" I think missed out.  Eventually the game got easier and sometimes you wanted to die due to the way the game worked, which was especially cool.

I'll need to get to grips with Demon's Souls. Not a user friendly game and wears down your patience.

Love the game, it is amazing. The sense of reward for beating a world is second to none. However get 3/4 through and die then die again losing 200,000 souls. OMGWTF NOOOOOOO! Yeah I'll get back to this game someday.

This game is gonna be great! Demon's Souls was easily the best game I've played in years, and I can't wait for it's sequel!

It was early '09 in Japan, late '09 in the states, and then mid '10 for the rest of the world.

I put a lot of work into that. Surprises me to no end the skill some people must posses to type like that on daily basis. Anywhoo the deed is done, the double-negative is in place, and I shall stand by my toils! Now off with you and your judgements! U_U

I watched a friend punch a chair across the room while playing Demons Souls. Yes, punch.

Looking forward to it. Approaching obstacles with caution instead of rushing and button mashing your way through can help alleviate suffering through the first game. I'll use the same tactics when playing Dark Souls. Thanks for the news.

Demon's Souls is a game of high risk/reward and that's why it's gotten a "bad" rep.  But if you just use caution and approach it with decent tactics it's not very difficult.

Don't miss out, people.

First day purchase. Considering getting it on 360 just to invade and murder all those delicious Demon's Souls virgins. So pumped for this.

Going to be awesome.  If the two versions are on par it might be hilarious to play it on 360 and see all the tears all over again.

Smart idea to have it come out on Halloween month.

Sweet.  Demon's Souls kicked my ass, but I'd still give Dark Souls a shot.

I missed out on the first one, but since this one is coming to 360 I am totally on board with this style of gameplay.

I wanna hurt.

My only gripe with what I've seen so far is that I wish that they would have just called it Dark's Souls.

Can't wait, DS is my favorite ps3 exclusive. Its really wasn't that hard if you took the time to figure out the world.
