    Yeah, comparing the first DS (2006 generation) to the remake then its almost like going from PSX to PS2, yes. Going from DS3 on a high end pc, nah not the leap some where expecting a while ago. UE5 tech demo on the other hand.

    Not this again!

    When we talk about 'generational leap' we all mean 'from the last console'. What does a 'high end PC' have to do with the generational leap from the previous generation of consoles to the new one?? Come on, man!

    Also, DS3 on a 'high end PC' still looks meh, but at least it's a sharp Meh.

    Yes, it's like DS2 when you start to go hollowed after being killed.

    DS2 you gradually lose more max life the more you die until you get to 50%. Demon's Souls you just default to half your life it sounds like.

    Unlike DS1, DS3 and Demon's Souls, you can get invaded while hollowed in DS2.

    In DS2 you can consume a human effigy or kill a boss to remove hollowing. Not sure if you can consume something in Demon's Souls to remove it but a boss kill will remove it.

    That was my main motivation to help other players kill a boss in DS2, to remove hollowing and get all my HP back before attempting a boss. :p

    Gosh I canceled my PS5 preorder as I want to start upgrading my PC soon and I don't expect to play too much between now and the end of the year, but now I'm starting to regret my decision.

    Also, comparing DS3 with this game... jezz... The level of detail, lighting, etc. "there is no need to be upset"

    Get both, ive done this since the first playstation. Maybe get the PS5 first, then half a year in or so, upgrade the pc (things will be cheaper then, price/perf ratio).

    Yeah, I bought a Quest 2...
    And now I'm thinking I should have bought a PS5 instead :p
    I'm getting kinda jealous!
    But I have a roadmap and I'll stick to it!
    First a new GPU, then a PS5 :D

    This is awesome. We need this implemented in others games like MHW to go to any city we want.

    So that's why DS has a character creator. :-D

    I am impressed because he has never played Demon's Souls.

    I haven't seen anyone play a Magic build. That's my intended build when I will play it. So Exciting! :)

    Some of that I haven’t played any of this before or pretending to go in blind seems fake though. For instance when he beat that first demon, he very clearly knew what was coming because he didn’t heal up, which I find suspicious for as clearly an experienced player as he is. There was also definitely some editing, like he found a shortcut but he knew what it was a shortcut through and ‘oh I usually go through here ...’

    But maybe I was missing something.
