Reading about Demon's souls servers possibly clsoing down in early 2011 made me pick it again and spend an evening with it. Made a new char and handicapped myself a bit to keep the challenge up. It's quite a different experience with a 2-hander and armor to heavy for dodgerolls.
The mechanics and atmosphere makes it as enjoyable as ever but if there is one game I wish I could play for the first time again it is this. I miss the terror of trying to make it through the tower of latria and the feeling of dread when entering the valley of defilement.
