THE BUZZ: If you bought Demon’s Souls and haven’t touched it because of its soul-crushing difficulty, now’s the right time to get into it. Atlas has announced the Pure White World Tendency event in which players in North America who log in to play, will gain access to perviously unavailable areas, and face-off against enemies that are a tad easier to handle once inside. The event is going on now and will end January 2, 2012.
EGM’s TAKE: So even though its bigger brother, Dark Souls, is alive and kicking, Atlus is still giving players that aren’t done with the first game’s epic quest a chance to have some fun. That’s good because like so many others, we love the concept of what this franchise is about, but now we have two games on our pile of shame that have come to a grinding halt over a difficulty level that comes off as a mean joke rather than an actual challenge.
