01:30 - !J.O.O.E.! Personally I wished I'd played Demon's Souls first, then i might have found it a bit better. I think it's good but after Dark Souls it just felt it was more primitive, shorter, fewer weapons etc.
01:29 - Mattybu It'll probably still be a while until I get to it so I'll get Demon Souls if I can. Since I am in a small room at university all I have been doing is PC gaming lately cause I don't have a TV
01:28 - !J.O.O.E.! In terms of story there's no need to. The gameplay is mostly identical too. Demon's Souls just has a different atmosphere, isn't open world and generally is shorter.
01:28 - Zaphod No Dark Souls isn't a sequel to Demon's Souls, it's not even in the same universe. The stories have nothing to do with each other. I'd still suggest playing Demon's Souls first though, since it's awesome.
01:26 - Mattybu should I play Demon Souls before Dark Souls? I bought it impulsively cause it was on the cheap but is the story more rewarding if I start from the start
01:26 - Clintagram Yeah, checkpoints would cut out about half the play time of a game. Taking fifteen minutes to return to a boss everytime I die is a little tedious.
01:25 - Zaphod And, by the way, they made the swamp in Dark Souls totally easy with that one ring.
Bay Area thrash metal legends Testament are proud to announce their first US headlining tour since their phenomenal chart success with their new album, Dark Roots of Earth, released at the end of July this year via Nuclear Blast. The trek promises to be one of the best thrash metal lineups of the year, with support coming from the world renowned Overkill and Flotsam & Jetsam, as well as Australian thrashers 4ARM.Check out the full list of tour dates below the flyer.
"It's a thrill to announce our upcoming dates with Overkill and Flotsam & Jetsam," commented guitarist Alex Skolnick. "It's a tour that brings together three different metal bands from three different regions: West Coast, East Coast and Southwest. All three bands sound very different from one another yet are highly compatible. All have been around the block (and the world) a few times and all have managed to keep a sound that feels current. This tour will be a must see for fans who remember the early days of thrash/speed metal as well as those whose age is younger than the genre itself."
