How did you guess progress through the game? Did you do 1-2 or start on 2-1? I've heard some found it easier to do the first level of each world first.
I believe I did 2-1, then 3-1, and farmed 3-1 a bit. Then went back to 1-2, and then 1-3? After that, get through 4-1, so you can do 4-2, where you can grind a reaper using a bow for some quick farming.

Re: Demon's Souls (PS3)

once you are able to grind 4-2 (4-6k souls in less than 60s if you kill the first manta), the loss of souls does not seem so bad.

I beat that level for the first time today. It took me two years but I did it!

Re: Demon's Souls (PS3)

I wish I had a PS3 just to play this game. If I asked for one, my wife would probably die of laughter.

Atlus keeps fun alive by extending Demon's Souls' servers

Demon's Souls' servers were all set to go to sleep on May 31st, 2012, but Atlus has just informed us today that the said servers are going to be extended "for the foreseeable future". For those of you who aren't familiar with the game, Demon's Souls basically allowed you to play online with other players, not only for PVP purposes, but for coop play as well (both directly and indirectly, through in-game "notes" and tips left by other players).

Atlus' Tim Pivnicny, VP of Marketing and Sales, had this to say: "While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon's Souls."

The Souls series are two of my favorite games of all time, so it's nice to see good things on the horizon for From Software. Between this news, Dark Souls' solid sales numbers, and an upcoming PC port, the prospect of a third Souls game seems to be in the cards.
