Apologies for the lack of updates for the last week or so. I’ve been off to the hospital a million times and have had a birthday – and one of my birthday presents was a game. Can you guess which one?
Yes, I’ve finally got my own copy of Demon’s Souls. I’ve missed it since returning my borrowed copy, but now I’ve got my own Black Phantom UK edition. It’s a lovely package, with an art book, CD and strategy guide.
As this is the UK version, though, and I was previously playing the Asian version, the game didn’t pick up my old save file. That turned out to be a good thing, given that I couldn’t remember any of the controls or how to play.

It’ll be back to 1-1 to pick up some supplies, then. Sigh.
I’m glad my memory wasn’t lying to me about the game, though – it’s just as utterly, relentlessly, punishingly great as I’d remembered.

Put somewhere in the region of ten hours into this over the weekend, maybe a little less. I didn’t get very far. I started with world 3-1, thinking it was 2-1, and managed to make things very, very difficult for myself by opening all the cell doors I could find. That was a big mistake,
You can probably make a huge list of things Sony got wrong with the PS3, but let’s not forget that they got an awful lot right, too. One of the main things being region free games. Having every game on the PS3 be region free is a wonderful thing. It means we poor Europeans get
