"Konami" is the operative word here.

I don't think it's gonna happen. :/

Late to the party as usual, but: Dark Souls, got damn! So satisfying on so many different levels! Especially during the beginning of the game, when you're still low-level, have shit gear, and are still trying to figure out the mechanics; the world just feels so vast and wonderfully dangerous! Art direction and atmosphere is spot on -- feels like Magic Sword in 3D! ;) I'm usually quick to dismiss a game as soon as I can smell exploitable farming/level grinding, but Dark Souls is a no-nonsense hardcore title no doubt! (To call it "very difficult" would be an exaggeration though, I'd say "challenging" at most) What an amazing game. I'd love to know how it compares to Demon's Souls.

I actually got Dark Souls 2 immediately after beating DS, which seems to be mediocre in comparison, so I won't bother with it any more. Although they obviously messed up a bunch of things quite badly, part of the reason I was disappointed with / couldn't get into it because was probably beacause the novelty factor had worn off. I'm really hoping Bloodborne is distinct and well-designed enough (or that future From titles will be) to properly engage me.

Demon souls- played though this again before the shut down the servers, it still stands as the best in the series to me.

Dimahoo- I have been on a Raizing kick lately and I seem to be better just dropping a cold credit. Finally broke 1mill.

Armed Police Batrider- hitting a few extends but still need more practice as I’ve been getting torn up on the sky high stage.

Nice picks. Also, do the online features do much for the games? I played DkS offline, but only because I don't have a Gold membership (or whatever it's called).

I've been playing DDP DFK quite a lot lately. It's fun, but damn... the loli voice-overs are so annoying!

Also beat Ninja Gaiden Black on Hard and Very Hard mode a while back, which forced me to learn some more advanced techniques, and study enemy behaviour better. Very much worthwhile! I doubt I'll go for a Master Ninja mode clear though... First stage is brutal (although probably also the hardest, due to the lack of upgrades, guillotine throw etc)! I went back and compared it to NG2 afterwards, and there's no doubt in me now that NGB is the superior game... by far!
