I personally think Demon's Souls is perfectly playable without the online. Hell, it and Bloodborne are the most single-player "friendly" games because there are no covenants to grind out for multiplayer (well, BB does have Covenants but very little grinding) and the only one item you'd miss out on without access to multiplayer is one piece of headgear because there's no way to get it in pure singleplayer. Managing your World Tendency for the 100% completion is also easier in the offline mode of the game.Is demon souls still playable without the servers running? I mean technically it is but MP was half the game.
The Old Monk's Headwrap. You can only get it if you get summoned to fight a host as the Old Monk player-bossfight (Spear of the Church bossfight in Ringed City was basically a recreation of this) and you manage to defeat the host. The way the Old Monk fight works is that if you have a Summon Sign anywhere in the Tower of Latria area (I don't recall if it had to be in the same specific level that the Old Monk fight itself was, 3-1) or invade, there's a chance you'll get pulled into the world of someone in your level range who's going to the Old Monk bossfight. The Old Monk's Headwrap boosts sorcery damage.Which one is that?
Japanese desire sensor strikes again. It's especially fun in Dark Souls 1 because DS1 doesn't have a respec option (not that I feel like they should've included changed the game to include one but still ) . It's even worse on weapons like the Channeler's Trident where you only have a tiny chance of getting one in the earlygame. At the very least Black Knight weapons seem to drop at a mildly better frequency. I think I've gotten like 1 Trident ever.I didn't get a black knight weapon on a character I wanted one on after ages of trying.
Then I got two on a sorcerer that will never use them.
You'd basically be paying for an active online community. The game's lighting looks odd in some places on the PS4 and there are some weird texture errors like some of the switches have weird blue smudges in them and Andre looks like he's covered in oil from head to toe. I don't think you can turn off the motion blur on the PS4 version and overall I'd say that if the online play isn't that important for you, you probably don't have too much of a reason to pay 40$ just for that and native 60fps.My PC is a potato, so I was gonna go for the PS4 version
Thanks for the advice. I have friend who bought it already, and are ribbing me for not joining in on co-oping in the game, but I just can't justify the cost of the game just yet. I'll go on sale eventually. I might get it then. In the meantime it might allow the invaders to get bored and fuck off. If I am doing online stuff in a Souls game, it's to be a sunbro. There are bosses in these games I could never have taken out without a sunbro or two helping me, so I like to be helpful to others that were stuck like I was whenever I can.You'd basically be paying for an active online community.

Yeah, that's been noticed by some other players in the community as well. As an aside, the guy whose tweet I linked, Illusorywall, has done a lot of work in finding out some of the inner workings of Souls games so while I don't generally care much for Souls ecelebs, I'd like to give a minor shoutouthere to a little two-part series of his on his tumblr called "Distant Views explained" which goes a bit into detail about the areas you can see from other levels.So I noticed a game play change in the depths. In the hallway leading to the Depths Bonfire only 3 of the blobs drop from the ceiling the rest just disappear.
The Zweihander is really good for strength builds. It's heavy attacks stuns pretty much everything except certain bosses.having picked up the remaster i actually made significant progress, even managed to get past blight town which was my stopping point on prepare to die edition. i was going to talk about how tomb of the giants was HORY SHEET levels of awful, but then i found nito and killed his ass sooner than i expected so i guess it evens out. currently using orenstein's armor and a +15 demon great machete, so i'm slow as erosion but take out pretty much everything in one or two hits.
