Picked up Dark Souls after my exam yesterday. So... I'll be addicted to that for the next 3 months. I like the 5 free potions every time you spawn. Already got eff'd by half a dozen ridiculous things. That Black Knight in the first world? Yeah, don't fight him. I know it's tempting with his back turned to you. I'm on the first "real" boss (after the prologue one, which is super easy).

Also, Dragon Quest IX was on sale for $20. Add it to my list of JRPGs I need to play on DS (DQ 4, DQ5, DQ6, FF3, FF4...).

What did you guys pick?
female hunter. Although, I don't nearly have enough arrows to re-spawn 20 times and get through a whole level. Almost went with Sorcerer, but I still like some melee combat. Just wanted to do something different than Demons Souls, where I went a Knight or something (the heavy armor / healing magic one). Heavy armor sucks. I'd rather be a more agile class that can dodge, while still using a decent weapon.

It's weird being able to create a character in Dark Souls (and with a name!?!). All you could do is pick the class in Demons. A welcome addition.

I am about to play demon souls, but one review said that Dark souls has alot of gangbanging where you have to memorize the AI path, is this accurate?
I prefer strategic 1-1 battles.

Warrior fits the bill, that's what I picked. Just like in Demon's Souls there's a ring you can get that reduces your equipped burden by 50%. You can get it pretty early if you picked the master key as your gift and are good at backstabbing.

I don't think it's accurate, but sometimes it take a little effort to figure out how to lure enemies out one at a time. I'm guessing the reviewer rused into things rather than pulling/luring enemies. The same goes for Demon's Souls.

Manipulating women...now THAT's hard. Probably because most woman have no clue what they like.

I did pick the Master Key as my gift. Since I thought my class might be a little weak in combat, I thought it would be good to get a few extra weapons early on from locked stuff.

I need to figure out the Taurus boss... I can't seem to evade anything with the narrow bridge.

I'm pretty sure you could make your own name, and face and everything in Demon's Souls.
