Any one playing this hard ass game?
yes. I got the two great souls from Sinner's Rise & the Iron Keep, and I'm now running through the Doors of Pharros to reach a third great soul from Brighstone Cove. Shaded forest & ruins was ez, though I did hate those lion soldiers quite a bit.
Really fun game and I've been enjoying it thoroughly.
I'm playing, just got past dukes dear freja, Damn spider! Also went and bought demon souls on PSN, Ohhh demon souls, you beautiful game!
